Headsail Bags

I notice that in my harbor no one uses a head sail bag. Granted many have roller furling, but many don't. Can anyone give me a good reason not to buy a headsail bag? I'm not a racer and my 110% is adequate in the conditions that we sail in. The point being that I'm trying to minimize the time it takes me to actually get sailing from my mooring.

Might just be cost. A quick check of West Marine shows a large headsail bag for $245 and a furler for a 25' boat around $400. People might figure that for another $200 or so you get the quicker furler, so why go for just a bag?
