I vote for the Altieri bag! My deluxe is over 10 yrs old and holding up well. The other brands may offer a bit more protection with the heavy foam and stiff leather or cordura, but the Altieri fits my 186 perfectly, and is the only bag that worked for me when I was loading and unloading for teaching 35 students per week (going from school to school in Texas). The ones with zippers failed pretty fast. If you happen to have pets---The nylon she uses doesn't pick up dog hair. My sled dog turned that coarse woven cordura stuff in to a right mess after two days, and you just can't keep it off of there. It really sticks in there!... that damn dog!
