Luggage room gorillas bent my Brompton's chainring (again)

When I flew to and from Phoenix last year, I carried my M3L in a big no-name ballistic nylon bag, with no special padding. The result? On my flight back, I got a bent chainring, a tweaked stem, and a shoved-forward saddle.

In the aftermath of that trip, I got one of the Brompton soft-sided bags, and used it on my trip to and from San Francisco this week. It worked fine going over, but...coming back, the chainring got another nice bend whunged into it.

At this rate, I'm thinking I either need to get a hard-sided case, or make all of my trips one-way.

Any other (potentially cheaper) suggestions?
