This is a very sturdy bag that holds all of my hardware. It seems like it will hold up to the rigors of gigging several times a month. I have had it for about 6 months, we do 2-3 gigs every other weekend, and it still looks brand new. Very high-quality materials.

I carry a hi-hat stand, snare stand, drum throne, 4 cymbal stands, and floor tom legs and everything fits nicely. I also keep a tambourine and a shaker in the pockets. It isn't quite big enough to fit my bass drum pedal in there, though (Tama Speed Cobra). That lives in the hard plastic case that it came in. If I could fit that in there then I would be really happy.

This bag lives in our band trailer, but I have also taken it out and put it in the trunk of my car (a full sized sedan with a pretty deep trunk) as well as across the back seat of my wife's car (a 4-door compact sedan).

The other guys in the band affectionately call it the "body bag", but what do you expect from a heay duty bag filled with drum hardware?? ;)

I purchased this case in August, 2014. I used it for perhaps 2 dozen gigs in local venues. (I am an amateur drummer.) In December 2016, one of the seams at the wheel end of the case gave way, with all the stitching coming undone. As a result, the bag is no longer usable. I contacted Musicians Friend, but since the case was out of warranty, they urged me to call Roadrunner to see if there was any flexibility to the warranty period. (I thought for sure they would be sensitive to a clear defect that was manifested so SOON after the expiration of the warranty.) Unfortunately, I was told by Roadrunner there was nothing they could do to help convince Musicians Friend to replace the case.

As a result of my experience, it's clear that I recommend avoiding the purchase of Roadrunner cases. They are not as durable as the price would suggest. (I've been using an "Impact" bag for 22 years, and it shows no signs of wear beyond normal wear.)

Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag 38 inches:

I've had mine for about 6 months and the stitching on the outside pocket has already gone completely out. You can't fill these to capacity because the stitching is too weak. On the plus side, you probably don't want to fill these to capacity because the bag becomes extremely heavy (even with the wheel system). I think it's a better bet to get two of them so you don't overload them.

Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag 38 inches:

I got this bag as a free gift with a drum hardware purchase, and I have to say it has been one of the most useful items I own to date. I am a recording engineer with a lot of gear to tote around. So far I have manger to fit one 24 channel 25 foot TRS snake, a stereo micro phone bar, 2 sets of headphones, 3 sM57s, and about 17 microphone stands in this bag with room to spare. This bag has Handles mounted on either side of the opening for one-handed carrying, two handles at either end for two-handed carrying, a shoulder strap, and wheels at one end (these are hard to utilize when the bag is full. Definitely worth looking into, especially if you are looking for a rugged bag capable of holding a small car.

Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag 38 inches:

Great bag. Fits a couple of cymbal stands, a snare stand, high hat, etc. Holds the weight well. I did run into some problems with the zipper pulls which broke pretty quick. I just put some key rings in and solved the problem...

      Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag 38 inches:

      I've owned this bag for about a year. I play out three or four times a month and every gig, I swear, I thank myself for buying it. It makes lugging 50 pounds of hardware a breeze. Very well made and shows no sighns of failing. Highly recommended.

      Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag 38 inches:

      Have used this for local gigs and rehearsals on average 4 times a week for 3 years. Has held up well with plenty of room for small to medium size kit. Zipper handles broke early on, but key rings with dog tags has worked well. Easy to load in and out of SUV. Shoulder strap is not useful for carrying, but this is a roller.

              I purchase this bag to carry all my cymbal stands, Chime stands and percussion tools and oddities. Looked it over carefully to verify it's ruggedness. Impressed by the thick walls and all the compartments it has. A true winner and a must for every musician. The ultimate test will be when I travel to Mexico with it.

                  Bought this as an inexpensive alternative to a hard case as I needed something in a hurry before heading out for a string of tour dates. Within about a month the stitching blew out near the caster wheels, leaving a gaping hole right where hardware could slide out while beeing wheeled. To be fair, I probably overused the bag for what it was intended to do. Nice size and easy to handle, though, for the weekend warrior. Just don't expect it to log lots of rough handling in and out of the van and up and down stairs when full.

                    Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag 38 inches:

                    I actually bought this while looking for a wheeled bag for professional (photography) lighting equipment. Though I do use it for packing up my drum kit for occassional weekend gigs (it holds all the hardware I can pack into it with room left over) I'll use it on a daily basis to hold several lighting stands, folding softboxes, etc. for pro photo use. It's well made with extra pockets on the ends and side. You can stuff padding inside, but otherwise, it's just a big open bag. The wheels work well, and in when it is partially full to stuffed, it can stand upright to save space. Reasonably priced for what you get. A cool bag for any kind of travel, no doubt.

                        I am using these bags to carry aluminum framing for promotional banners, as well as tripod stands for professional lighting. The bags are heavy duty with great wheels. As some others have mentioned, the bags themselves are heavy, but I have over 50 lbs of metal in each of them, so I wanted sturdy. I also like that they are soft sided so they can go into any vehicle. Definitely recommend!!!

                              Great bag...saves time by not having to break everything down and set up is much faster as well. Obviously filled with gear it gets heavy however the wheels work very well.

                              I would recommend this bag for the reasons above but beware of the weight when purchasing.

                              Musicians Friend is great to work with and I could not be happier with this purchase.

                                This bag holds lots of gear. The back strap doesn't seem to be a very effective way of carrying it when it is loaded.

                                It held all my gear and had room for more and seemed fairly balanced when carried.

                                It should meet my need for weekend gigs.

                                  Sturdy bag that has plenty of room for all of your stands. Heavy duty zippers and an additional side compartment that comes in handy. Wheels make rolling instead of lifting a lot easier.

                                      Sturdy bag, empty it's a little heavy. Haven't used it yet. Waiting to see how tough the material is. Don't have any reason to think it will disappoint me. Was a good value.

                                      I play a short high hat, so mine fit. But if you play a tall high hat, you might want the longer model. This is very durable and saved my back!
