Either cases should serve you well. PR cases are semi-rigid and are high-quality.

cheers, I used Gator and found them to be rubbish, mind you they are just canvas like soft cases. My old kit got a dink on the Kick when it was in one of the Gator cases....

I have Protection Racket and they are wonderful for transporting via cars (as you say you do), very durable and protective. However, just to be safe, I think I would use hard cases if my drums were being transported/thrown around in the back of an equipment truck.

I also use PR bags and they are top-notch bags. I also have a couple of the Beato Pro 1 bags that are almost as good as the PR.

Another advantage with the PR cases over the hard cases is that I can get all the drum cases into the Kick case and zip it up and throw it somewhere, with hard cases I'm stuck, I have to pile them up somewhere.........bit of a pain

All my Hardcases nest inside each other. In fact, I don't know of any cases, hard or soft, that do not nest. Also, the nice thing about nesting hardcases is you can store other items on top of them. Soft cases get squished and sag if you put amps, etc. on them.
