 I peruse the local YMCA thrift shop and Goodwill for used luggage.
 No great loss when they wear out. Pack ok.

I think that's a problem with any of these storage methods.
Cables are organized and labeled; 10,15,20,25,30.
Pile them by size at setup and it's pretty quick.

I remember the olden days, touring in an old school bus, the back half of the bench seats were removed to provide room for equipment, the removed seats furnishing band members porches.  We used the old wooden ammo crates. nice rope handles and everything.  The mics were swaddled in towels in ammo cans.

And I remember the motor of an old school bus throwing a rod, on a freezing New Years Eve, heading for a gig in Lake Geneva, WI. Brrrrrrr!

In those days, we were using the cheap replica steamer trunks to haul cables.  Would blow out the seams fairly regularly.

Road cases.  Use road cases.

Why has this thread not been moved to the Lounge a month ago?

I usually use union stage hands to carry our mic and speaker cables from our shop to the stage.

The winning and best answer -- until the thread moved to the Lounge.  I still like it.
