I have never had a problem in my bat bag, but I do make sure to have 3 bats for support so one bat doesn't take the brunt if something happens.

I bought a golf travel bag and slipped over my softball bag. It gave good protection and added more packing for small items

Tape a sheet of bubble wrap around each bat.

I bought a good soft wheeled golf travel bag and it works great. Put the bat bag in and fill it right up to 50 lbs max. and then only have a small carry-on.
Gives the bats some extra cushion and on return trip a good place for all those great smelling clothes!!!!!

Thanks for all your help.. It's looks like there are a few options depending on what your bringing. Protection seems to be the major factor.

To me, the issue is safety ftom theft as well physical protection of the actual bat(s). If you are in a position to, buy a bat bag that has lockable zippers for the bat storage area. I had a buddy of mine have his bats stolen or come up missing while in the airlines poseesion on a trip back from Phoenix two years ago.

Haven't tried the golf bag idea yet but that sounds like it would work as well. Make sure no one can get to your bats!
