    Great spacious bag.
    Pros

    Spacious, quality made and lots of compartments.

    Cons

    May get a bit bulky in a 152 or 172.

    General Comments

    Great bag however I should've opt for a smaller version, as it's always a struggle trying to fit this bag in the rear seat of a 172. But this bag does hold A LOT of books, headsets, etc.

    I like it, but it was replaced by a better bag shortly after my purchase
    Pros

    Good, solid bag

    Cons

    No longer available. Replaced by better version shortly after I purchased this one.

    General Comments

    I wish Sportys would have let me know a newer, better version was due out soon. I purchased this bag, but in the next catalog I received, the newer, better version was featured. I would have never bought this bag if I had known about the newer version coming out.

    This bag holds it all! I can carry all of my textbooks for college, as well as needed flight gear. Convenient pockets to hold anything you could possibly need in an organized manner. This is a durable bag and I highly recommend it for student pilots.

    Cons

    I have yet to encounter any so far!

    Pockets for everything!
    Large enough for my ridiculous flight helmet.

    Cons

    No color options.
    If the side pocket for the headset were detachable, that would make it more usable when space is restricted.

    General Comments

    Great flight bag!
    Sturdy, and a secure storage for all of my gear.

    Constructed to last a lifetime!
    Pros

    This is a roomy, well-designed and well-constructed piece of equipment. I've already loaded it up with books, charts, tools, tablet, etc. and it has more than enough capacity.

    Cons

    I can't think of any except I've not used it long enough to accurately comment on the durability. Being so well constructed, I don't anticipate it not lasting many, many years.

    General Comments

    It's a great product for the price. I'd buy it again, or recommend it without reservation.

    Solid Bag
    Pros

    High quality material, plenty of space for all my stuff. Really like the iPad pocket and attached headset bag. Great bag to just pick up and go fly–knowing all my stuff is easily accessible.

    Cons

    When pockets are stuffed, the zippers sometimes cannot close. Not really a big deal, just needed to rearrange.

    General Comments

    Really like this bag. Upgraded from a Jeppesen student flight bag that just simply did not have enough room. This bag really has it all.

    I have had one of the original flight gear bag for years. The new bag is a great improvement and the increase in specialized pockets is a great help.
