Hardcase vs backpack/bag

I want to change my old bag and was researching mostly backpacks. While searching, I came across a good deal for a hardcase, like this one:

Dörr SILVER 50

This does not mean that I have to buy exactly this model - it just opened my eyes that there could be other solutions. The advantages that a case has seems to be that it looks more pro, the equipment looks more secured and I can easily imagine attaching it to something with a bike lock during a wedding / event.
I wonder what are the cons of carrying everything in something like that. I know that the biggest one would be the weight (4-5 kg / 9-11 lbs) on one hand but it can be easly bypassed by a rolling model.

Do any of you use a hardcase instead of a backpack or a shoulder bag to carry your equipment for a photo job?
