Default Rigid drum bags?

So I found out today that it's not looking good for Protection Racket's AAA line of semi-rigid bags becoming available in the USA. I really liked the idea of having those instead of hard cases for transporting drums in my car.
Any other companies making semi-rigid fleece lined bags that work well?

Just purchased a set of Ahead fleece lined bags for my 7 piece kit, $325 delivered to my door. Awesome cases for the money.

Cool, I haven't had a chance to see them in person. Do they retain their shape or collapse after the drums are removed?

I like the Aheads- they're basically the same as most of the good quality, fleece-lined cases, but the little bump for hardware is great. The AAA bags look great as well with the inner core of hard material, which seems like the logical refinement of case design. I don't know of anyone else doing something like that.

Ok thanks for that. Yeah the AAA cases looked like the bee's knees but not available (yet) in the States.

The regular Protection Racket cases are on par with the Ahead bags. Semi-rigid, fleece lined, sturdy zippers, great handles, etc. The only real difference between them and the AAA cases is the rigid insert that makes the AAA cases, well, rigid. They have a foam insert instead of the hard plastic one and in my opinion are easier to deal with than a hard case. You can nest them, too.

I don't know what brand this is, but it's semi-rigid, but not fleece lined.

Maybe someone can recognise the brand. The label fell off.

It's very thick and protective.
