Chainsaw carrying bag clarification

Chainsaw carrying bag with chainsaw and safety gear which is not an official Stihl product

Dave V commented yesterday on how he was thinking of getting a plastic hard case to carry his chainsaw around in and if I thought there might be some advantages to this over my fabric chainsaw carrying bag.

First off let me be clear that the bag I got is not an official Stihl product although the color combination is a good imitation.

I think the biggest advantage to a hard case is the added protection. If you carry your saw in the back of a truck it might be wise to use a plastic case, but I rarely take ours off the farm.
