Default Hardware Bags...which would you recommend?

I'm in need of a hardware bag and am looking for help on which one I should buy...I'm using an old hockey bag right now which is a huge pain in the ass to lug around.

Something durable for sure, preferrably a soft bag.
It definately needs to have wheels for easy transportation too.

Please share your thoughts and experiences.

Thanks, Mark

I have a Protection Racket which has wheels. But I'm actually looking for something like a hockey bag, or two smaller bags that I can split my stands into. I only use two cymbal stands, two snare stands, and a hi-hat and because the PR bag already has some weight to it, it gets really heavy.

You don't always have to use something labled for drum use, just like your hockey bag. Maybe something like this?

Beato Cordura's are nice AND cheap. My hardware bag has really tough wheels on it and it makes a heavy bag easy to haul around.

Check out an Army surplus store. They have lots of duffle and gear bags. I used those for years until I could afford purpose-made cases and bags, but the duffle bags are work just as well in many ways.

Yeah I thought of that, but I can't find any army surplus around here. I was looking for maybe just two long gym bags and it was suggested that I look into a hockey bag. I may do that and get one for my hi-hat/throne and another for my cymbal and snare stands.

Try to get something with wheels to save your back.
