Gibson soft leather case protective enough?

Is the Gibson soft leather case actually good enough to protect a les paul head stock from breaking if it fell over or was dropped? Is a hard-shell case more protective?

yes, the hard case is better by a factor of maybe 100x...

A hard shell case is a much safer option.  My first guitar was a 2002 Gibson LP Faded Special that didn’t come with a gig bag or OHSC.  I purchased a gig bag, thinking it would be enough.  However, every time I transported it to lessons, etc., I became more and more concerned about potential accidental damage.  I ultimately returned the gig bag with the 30 day return period and purchased an SKB HSC.   Since then, I now own seven electric guitars and three electric basses, all of which are transported in the comfort of a HSC.
