Mr. Smoke understands your needs in this regard and the extent to which this is a choice than needs to be made correctly in a single attempt. Therefore, below is an outline of two such containment alternatives. These are hard cases and padded bags. Hopefully, your choice is made easier after reading this.

Hard Cases

The first alternative to be reviewed is the hard case. The name is reflective of the exterior of the cases. This exterior is usually comprised of a hard material such as some form of metal. In contrast, the interior of the case is usually heavily padded and has compartments for various implements. The intention with the design of hard cases is protection as they are generally used for either items with a high value or those that are easily susceptible to damage such as items made up of glass. This protection takes places at the external and internal levels. Externally, the material used can provide shock absorption and prevent impact from being passed to its contents. The internal padding ensures that pressurization is present and holds contents in place as needed.

Padded Bags

Padded bags offer one of the most versatile forms of storage available as they are available in many forms. The idea behind padded bags is to offer a form of storage that provides security to contents without being too expensive.

Unlike hard cases that tend to fit into an established mold, the variety that is available with padded bags means that you can find one that appeals to your style and transportation needs.

The outside of the bag can be made up of many different materials such as cloth or leather. Internally, the bag is padded with materials such as leather and offers protection to the contents held within

Which Should You Choose?

There’s no correct choice of a containment mechanism as the needs of each person determine what is necessary.

Cost – Cost is one of the most important considerations as it is at the heart of your ability to acquire the item. Generally, hard cases provide a more expensive alternative than the much cheaper, padded bag alternative.

Protection – The level of protection is also an important consideration. This speaks to the protection offered by the containment mechanism and the protection needed by the contents. For example, glass needs more protection than plastic. The combination of these two determines factors determines the alternative you need.
