They are neat as long as you treat them as delicate eggshells, when a unit heads out on a JFTX and soft cases are used it is not uncommon for rifles to have problems when taken out of the case.

Front sight gaurds on the gas block of AR's get bent among other things.

If you are going to hual a bunch of rifles and gear hard cases work better.

Strat, from my front door to my truck to the range they work fine.

You do make a good point though.
What do you suggest for a hard case?

Bet you enough rifles to arm an entire unit

We use those cheap plastic cases that used to sell at WAC shows for 20$ for the small rifles and the large plastic cases for the M-21 size rifles, GUN GUARD is the brand name.

Ive seen the rear leafs sights snapped off the AK's bent sights on AR's in soft cases, we try to keep the rifles on top of the load but someone always needs something from their pack on the bottom of the load and the rifle gets beat up some where along the way.

The other consideration the hard cases shed water better, soft cases seem to soak up rain and moisture.

A soft case with plastic hard side inserts



For a hard case, I prefer Starlights somewhat over Pelicans and by alot over Doskocil style, and no name aluminum cases.

The Hardigg/Storm cases appear to be equal to Pelican, but I haven't owned anything made by them.

Hardigg cases are just expensive and the metal clips that secure the lids have a bad habit of coming out of the plastic at the worst time. Pelican cases work just as well (if not better) and are easier to find. Just because it's milspec doesn't mean that it's quality craftmanship.

by the way, nice softcase.
