    Yep, people who don’t want to lug hardshell cases around. I gig exclusively with gig bags (granted they’re not cheapies but very solid).

    Depends on the guitar. I have a few that I lug around in bags and a few that I prefer hard cases.

    the soft case/gig bags that I got from Thomann are great, nice heavy padding, decent neck support and easier to store than a hard case when not in use.

    same basic design idea. great to throw them in when I buy anything from Thomann

    I use them on goodwill guitars as dust covers but I don't pay $29 for them.

    I pretty much prefer them to hard cases. I don't have room to stack up a bunch of cases in my place.

    I used them for going to rehearsal and jamming with friends. When I used to travel for shows, hard cases were the only way to go.

    I can store more cheap guitars in gig bags than I can in cases. Adding these to my Christmas list!

    @Mickey, I think in recent years, gig bags have become much more popular than hard cases. When I was younger, I insisted on a hard cases for each of my guitars and basses. That was ok when I was travelling a lot for gigs, but after a while, I realized I didn't need to keep a half a room full of hard cases around (I don't store my guitars in their cases) and I only ever need to leave the house with two at the most...

    Then, I got tired of lugging hard cases to local gigs/jams/open mics and bought a couple of gig bags (one for guitar, one for bass) and that's all I've used for the last few years.

    I used to think showing up with a gig bag would make me look like an amateur, or a cheapskate, but they seem to be a lot more commonly used than cases these days.

    Now, I only keep two Fender-style cases (1 guitar, 1 bass), one LP case, and one arch-top/335 case, and I would only use them for a road trip, or for shipping. Otherwise, I use gig bags.

    Those look pretty nice for 30 bucks. Looks like they don’t ship until 12/29 though....

    I store all my guitars in hard cases, but I prefer a quality gig bag for travel. The gig bags that Taylor makes for their acoustics are especially nice.

    I keep all my guitars in hard cases except:
    1.- when they are being used
    2.-I have one hanging on the wall and one on a floor stand.

    Those Roadrunner bags are the same ones that I use. They are good quality (sturdy construction, decent padding), but that $64.99 price is MSRP. They usually sell for $39.99.
