I actually bought this at a Guitar Center store and previously saw it here online. Its very disappointing though to see that it has no picture. This bag truly makes life much easier. Instead of making endless trips back and forth to my truck or gig spot to pick up things like cymbal stands, peddle's, tom legs, ect., i can make it all in one trip and i can keep any loose pieces together in one bag. The bag its extremely heavy duty by anyones standards and sometimes the amount of hardware you can pack into this bag is plenty for it to handle but can be overwhelming for someone trying to carry it. Depending on how much hardware you have you can get up to about 200 pounds of weight inside it. The straps are heavy duty and easy to remove and the handles are stiched well to prevent any kind of tearing or stress even with the heaviest of loads. Also if it doesn't mention it in the description it is a soft bag (don't let that influence your decision), the wheels are in the lower corner, the color of the bag is black, and the underside of the back is supported by some kind of strong stiff but flexible material to keep its shape and support whats inside. I would 100% recommend this bag to any one

I am a working drummer and have been gigging for over 30 years. I don't know why I never owned a wheeled bag in the past, but since I got this bag in 2013, I can never go back. Let's start with the good.

There is plenty of room inside the 50" bag and I keep 3 double braced stands (HH, SD, Boom) a single braced boom stand, a double tom mount, two stick bags and a cymbal stacker attachment.

The "Smart Feature" I alluded to is the inclusion of two straps located on the bottom on the inside of the bag, which you can place tightly around the stands and keep them from shifting in transit, and (mostly) centered, thus preventing one wheel from coming up off the ground when you're rolling it. Genius.

There is plenty of storage in the side pocket, which is basically like a stick bag. I store my floor tom legs and bass drum spurs in there, and they are causing a fair amount of wear and tear on the ends of the pocket and are almost ready to poke through. I'll probably throw some gaffer's tape in there to extend the life.

There is an additional storage pocket at each end of the bag, and these pockets are not padded. The pockets are around 6" by 6" and 2 or 3 inches deep. This is a good place to store smaller parts, accessories, cables, and, if you're careful, mics.

I was most concerned about the wheels failing, but so far, they're holding up well, 3 years and counting. I treat the bag fairly well, but don't baby it. I've dragged it slowly and carefully up and down stairs. The bag itself has no tears or holes, and the internal straps are as solid.

That brings us to the bane of pretty much every low-cost gig bag on the planet, and the only blemish on this otherwise great bag. Zipper pulls. The zipper pulls, which are really cool stamped RoadRunner logos, are made of thin metal in the most crucial spot, and fail early and often, even when you're careful. When the inevitable breakage happens, just replace with key rings. If that's the only negative, I can live with it

      Not just for drummers!!! Excellent gig bag!

      By Daniel Rydman

      from HB, California

      Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag:

      I play small solo acoustic gigs and was looking for a bag to tote mic stands (including an old school Atlas with the round base), a speaker stand (yes it accommodated my speaker stand), guitar stands, music stand, and even my drum throne...basically anything long and sturdy. A drummer at the accessory counter at GC suggested this bag. SO worth it! Remember I said SOLO, so I carry my own gear most times, and sometimes a bit of a distance depending on the venue. This bag cut my time in half since it rolls...and rolls nicely, leaving my other hand free to carry other gear. The sliders on the bottom make dragging it up steps very smooth and easy. Great sturdy straps in various places make it easy to load up. Opens up wide to stuff lots of gear. Get this, the heavy round base for my Atlas stand fits in one of the end pockets! I use the other end for an extension cord. Side pouch for my power conditioner. The straps never seem to wear. Never had a rip or a tear. This thing is TOUGH! Now, unfortunately after killing this bag for over 2 years, I got in a hurry and snagged the wheel housing on a brick step. Like an idiot, I just yanked and ripped the whole thing off. Otherwise, I doubt you could ruin this bag. So yes...I'm buying another one!

      Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag:

      Guys, calm down with the zipper pulls! Not sure what you guys are putting this bag through but if you are reasonably careful with the zippers,they seem decent enough to hold out for a while longer than some of you are getting out of them. Replace them with black keyrings and paracord when they do fail.

      Suspect zipper pulls aside, I love this thing! I have a Gibraltar curved double bass rack that took 2-3 trips and moving blankets carefully laid out in the truck to move and now it all goes in one bag and takes one trip. There is no way my OCD will allow all the rack parts to just pile up in there and hit each other so I made cardboard trays with dividers that stack on the bottom of the bag. This also keeps the bag in shape and adds protection for the rack parts. Bass drum spurs and floor tom legs go in the side pocket, which I also put a strip of cardboard in that covers the bottom and sides up to the zipper to prevent anything poking through the fabric.

        I'm a mobile DJ who does a lot of gigs and finding a solution to minimize my transport time by reducing the amount of cases is a must. This bag has room for my speaker stands, wires, small lighting cases, and accessories. With multipal carry handles and wheels, the bag saved me a bunch of time setting up and breaking down.

        Roadrunner 50 Inch Monstosity

        Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag:

        I purchased this for an assortment of Sonor stands. With the stands fully compact in the bag I had about a foot and a half of extra space. The extra space just buckled the bag under the weight of my hardware. I ended up going with the 38" and it is a much better fit. I can't imagine anybody needing a 50 inch bag unless they have a rack with super long bars to tote around. Guitar Center swapped the bags with no problems. On the 38 inch bag the zipper tab broke off the first time I used it -_- Not happy with that. Just put some 550 parachute cord to replace it but it leaves me skeptical how durable this bag will be long term.

        Good, economical hardware bag for 2 years and counting

        Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag:

        I'm a working drummer in and around NYC, where parking is always an issue. In over 30 years of gigging, and this my first wheeled bag, I'm never going back. Even if I'm parked a block away, I just wheel this baby from the car to the stage. The bag is rigid on the bottom, the wheels are sturdy and are holding up well to this type of use. I do try and treat the bag well (I don't throw it around and man-handle it), but I certainly don't 'baby' it. I can't speak for those who might be doing heavy touring, where roadies are tossing your gear around. A great feature, that I haven't had on previous hardware bags, is two straps (attached to the inside bottom of the bag)that hold the hardware centered in the bag. We've all had the experience of loading stands into the bag, and as soon as you try to move it, the stands shift to one side, making it nearly impossible to carry (or wheel). With this bag, just try to distribute the hardware evenly, and once it's in place, just strap it in with the two straps, and it stays put. It takes 30 seconds longer than just throwing your hardware in there, but it's worth the effort. The straps also help prevent wear. Storage is more than adequate. In the main part of the bag, I keep two double boom stands, a snare stand, tom mount, hi hat stand, cymbal stacker, and there's room to spare. The side pouch is large enough for my stick bag, my floor tom legs, and my bass drum spurs, though I should mention that the pouch is wearing out a bit from the legs and spurs; I recently noticed some small holes forming. The end pouches are a nice touch and add extra storage for small items like tool kits. The zippers actually seem pretty beefy, but like most zippers on economy priced gear bags, they break. I've been quite careful with the main zippers, and they've remained intact, but the zipper on the outside pouch broke within a month. All it takes is for the zipper to jam slightly, or meet with some resistance, and even with reasonable force to move the zipper, the zipper handle will break right off. I usually stick a keychain ring on there and get on with life, but zippers that break easily are a pet peeve of mine. Can't they beef up the zipper where it really counts, instead of making a custom "Roadrunner" zipper that looks impressive, but breaks? I would easily recommend this bag to gigging drummers who are moving their own gear. Be gentle with the zippers and you'll enjoy at least several years of use. I'm at 2 years and 100+ gigs and counting, with the bag still in excellent shape, not counting one zipper and some wear on the outside pouch. For reference, I drive a Honda Civic (believe it or not) and the 50" version of this bag JUST BARELY fits in the trunk, width-wise. But it fits.

        I use this to transport speaker stands, mic stands, and guitar stands. I got tired of carrying armfuls of stands, and thought this would be a great tool to consolidate and protect stands. So far the bag has proved to be sturdy and the wheels are a blessing.

          Comments about Road Runner Rolling Hardware Bag:

          I was initially skeptical of this hardware bag, as I haven't had previous luck with soft bags for any of my gear. This hardware bag has changed my view. From weekly gigs to studio sessions throughout the area, this bag has been put to the test and still looks and functions the way it did when I purchased it. I have loaded this bag to the brim with my heaviest hardware to the point that I need two people to lift it, and it still hasn't failed me.

          The sled and wheels are sturdy enough to handle the heaviest of hardware up and down steps, and the wheels even seem to work marginally in gravel lots. That being said, the sled itself seems like it would collapse under weight if a few stands aren't extended to the full length of the bag to add some structure. Hasn't been an issue for me, but if you collapse all your stands and leave room, I can imagine that the sled would eventually buckle. The bag is very sturdily made, and the zipper is easy and doesn't get stuck. Handles are easy on the hands when wheeling long distances, and haven't torn when lifting heavy loads.

          This is one piece of my gear that I would replace in a heartbeat if something were to happen to it. I have been thoroughly pleased with this bag and will definitely purchase road runner products in the future.

Packs all stands, straps in tight, holds other extras cords micks etc. Stores and packs in vehicle like a charm. I would most definitely recommend this to anyone! Very Happy with this.

            I had been looking for a gig bag for a while. Glad I found this one because I can put all the hardware for my 5 piece set of Tama drums in plus a folding mike stand and a music stand. The best part is that I can put my hi-hat stand with pedal in it with it fully assembled. This saves me a lot of time setting up and breaking down. The bag rolls easy with a lot of weight. I like the interior straps to keep your gear in place. As heavy as it is fully loaded with gear, with the sled on the back I can stand it up against the tailgate of my pickup truck and then slide it right on in, even with a bad back. Only wish I had this one years ago when I was playing regularly. Thanks Ricky for recommending this to me.

              Heavy duty and great for my drum hardware and with the wheels makes it easy to move.
