If the outer bag ("gig bag") of your choice provides very good protection for your horn's case, it's easy to carry, and it's rugged in construction, then go for it. If it's a laptop case in initial design, that's great, too. The point here is that a gig bag is supposed to do a few things very well. First, it needs to protect the horn's case from the elements and from scratching, wear, etc. Second, the gig bag needs to be easy to carry, preferably over the shoulder to relieve the stress from the hands. Third, the essential gig bag is supposed to carry the extra goodies that won't fit inside your horn's case, such as music, perhaps a small music stand, etc.

The main goal of a case cover is to insulate the horn itself... the case is much cheaper to replace than getting a new horn... also it should give you the option to carry the case on your shoulder or hold it... and give you more room.... but to protect the case itself... i'm not too concerned with...
