i've seen people with hockey bags, people carrying them in one by one, huge road cases....what do you use?

i'm looking for a new hardware bag. i currently have an old army bag, which gets heavy and uncomfortable. not to mention a couple holes big enough for a floor tom leg to fall out....

anyway, looking for a good bag with wheels. gotta be soft due to space constraints in my car.

any suggestions?

I actually used a SKB golf bag transport case just like this with my hardware when I was touring and even when I was doing some studio session stuff more often than lately seemed to work real well and could hold a good bit of gear .

I use a soft, travel golf bag, but likes yours, it's full of holes now. i'm looking to upgrade to a hard shell golf travel case. you can usually find one cheaper than a case geared for drum hardware. It's basically the same case.
