Personally, I wouldn't trust an SSD for permanent storage just yet. Aside from the lack of robust recovery options in the event of a failure, I've read that data corruption/loss can start occurring if the SSD hasn't been powered on for as little as several months.

HDDs in a rugged case can handle significant shock when not in active operation (ie there shouldn't be an issue during transport); the technology is mature and there's less risk of total data loss; and of course there's the advantage of much higher storage capacity and lower cost.
