    Product description: The next generation of flight bags See our real-world product tests Technology has changed the way we fly, and flight bags need to change too. Gone are the days of carrying heavy chart binders; these have been replaced by iPads, ANR headsets and plenty of charging cords. The all-new Flight Gear collection is designed with these needs in mind, offering just the right amount of storage space in a series of streamlined, modern flight bags. Since each one has been designed by a team of active general aviation pilots with over 20 years of experience in designing flight bags, every Flight Gear bag includes pilot-friendly details you won’t find anywhere else. They simply work better and last longer. From student pilots to military aviators alike, Flight Gear is the world standard for purpose-built flight bags. Flight Gear Navigator Bag The ultimate in-flight organizer This versatile flight bag, our most popular design, is ideal for student pilots and experienced pros alike. It features thoughtfully designed pockets to protect and organize all your flying gear, but retains a slim profile and a modern look. Real world pilot features The Navigator was created exclusively for pilots – no gimmicks or camping features here. Exterior pockets include a padded headset pocket, padded iPad pocket, iPad accessory organizer for ADS-B receivers and GPSs, quick-access file folder pocket and a front cord storage pocket. The exclusive HideAway Headset Pockets[™] can be opened to offer additional organization for multiple headsets, RAM Mounts or a video camera system. When not in use, they zip closed and stay out of the way. The generously-sized main compartment can hold books, kneeboards, radios, GPSs or even a change of clothes. Just the right sizeThe perfect flight bag is large enough to carry everything you need for a flight, but not so big that it is cumbersome or hard to store in the cockpit. The Navigator strikes the right balance, with room to carry multiple headsets, an iPad, backup charts and all the accessories – but it remains easy to carry and never looks bulky. For trips that require extra gear, the Navigator can expand or make use of optional accessories to haul even more. Unmatched durability Pilots need a bag they can count on – after all, it’s protecting some expensive and important gear. Every Flight Gear bag features pilot-tested construction techniques, like double-stitched seams, water-resistant rubber bottoms and strong metal hardware. Plus, each bag comes with an industry-leading 6 year warranty. Not just for flying While the Navigator is designed for pilots, you’ll find it both flexible enough and stylish enough to use every day: at the gym, as a carry-on airline bag or at the office. Measures 10”w x 22”l x 11”h overall. Embroidery Instructions Sporty’s® will embroider up to three initials on your new Flight Gear® bag.

    Backup iPad Battery

    With its compact design and powerful 16,000 mAh battery, this backup battery is a perfect backup for all your portable electronics. The 5 USB ports allow you to charge and power most USB powered devices, and the included USB to mini/micro USB cable means you don't have to carry one for each device. LED status indicators let you know how much charge power is remaining and the built-in flashlight will help you connect in the dark. Also handy for use as a usb cell phone charger.

    Our product testers found that this Backup Battery will provide up to 150% charge for an iPad. If your internal battery usually provides 10 hours, this battery will give an impressive 15 hours of additional run time when fully charged. Works with iPad, iPhone, iPod, smartphones, Blackberrys, and most devices that can be powered through USB. Not compatible with all Android devices.

    Flight Gear Headset Case

    See our real-world product tests

    Flight instructors always have a lot to carry, but multiple lessons per day can make a big bag difficult to use. That’s why the instructors at Sporty’s designed this new Flight Gear Bag to store everything CFIs carry, but in a lightweight, compact bag. With specially designed pockets for a headset, iPad, Transceiver and more, this bag organizes the maximum amount of gear in a small space.

    Cons

    Double-zipper pull on top does not open easily

    General Comments

    Good quality and plenty of pockets. Best for electronic pilotage since available space for paper navigational/instrument charts/approaches is limited. Also, headset pockets are a bit small and take space away in the main compartment.

    A pretty good bag...
    Pros

    I love the color and many pockets available to store items.

    Side pockets that provide quick access to logbook and my knee pad.

    Plenty of space, even for extra headsets and my books (although, not really all at the same time).

    Cons

    Zipper on main bag opening is not very high quality and seems to stick frequently...especially when the string between the two zippers is pulled to bring both zippers down simultaneously. This should operate without issue and should be a smooth motion.

    General Comments

    This is my first official flight bag. I purchased this because I wanted to carry along my typical flight equipment and supplies (headset, e6B, logbook, sectionals, knee board, etc) and also carry around my studying material, which includes several large books and manuals (e.g. FAR AIM).

    I really like this product and will continue to use is as long as I can. I enjoy the capability of the bag as a whole.

    Pros

    very strong, capable of holding a good deal of gear

    Cons

    strap was not able to hold taunt. a couple zippers can stick

    General Comments

    the only real problem i had was with the shoulder strap not being able to hold the weight of the bag without loosening. but a note to customer service took care of that and i probably just got a bad strap. the bag is big and can hold all of my binders, sectionals, etc. had to deduct a star for the strap, but 5 stars for sporty's cust service.

    General Comments

    A must buy for student pilots. It has great organization and space for all your books and supplies with extra room. I wouldn't buy a different bag and probably will never have too.

    Great for additional space, but it's heavy
    Pros

    Lots of space, and cleverly designed pockets and storage areas. Sturdy zippers. Seems to be really well-built.

    Cons

    This sucker is heavy, right out of the box. I chalk it up to its quality construction, but I was surprised at its heft compared to my other flight gear bag.

    General Comments

    I'm upgrading from the bag I got with my student pilot 'learn to fly' kit. The extra storage is great, especially given that it's not too much bigger than my previous gear bag. I can easily fit two headsets, and have plenty of room left over for my Little John, books, sectionals, iPad, water bottle, etc.

    I do NOT envision needing another pilot gear bag, there is enough storage for all my items. This is a very well designed and constructed bag and durable so far. I do not see any potential problems and would recommend this to any pilot or someone looking for a good travel bag.

    Cons

    I bit pricey overall, and I think the monogram of one's initials is a nice idea, but that too is pricey.

    A little disappointed
    Pros

    Lots of room and appears waterproof.

    Cons

    Where do I begin. I am sadly disappointed in Sporty's. First, the zipper on the tablet pouch (both sides of the zipper) jams when you try to zip or unzip it. This pouch was a main reason for purchase and it is ridiculously difficult to use. The main double zippered flap on top has issues. The pull tabs come out of the zipper with almost no pull on the. I have had this bag for two weeks and already have these problems. What is going on Sporty's? We depend on you for honest value.

    General Comments

    It would be a great item if not for the mentioned issues.

    Sporty's Response

    Our bags have an industry leading six year warranty. This bag was promptly replaced with a new one.

    Well thought flight bag.

    Like other reviewers I wish it had an outside pocket for the fuel tester and the sunglasses holder was made not to scratch your glasses. Other than that a great bag.

    Pros

    Great construction and size. Lots of individual pockets so everything isn't mixed up all together.

    Cons

    Needs an external fuel tester holder (like a very large pen holder). Sunglasses holder is not useableunless you ddon't mind scratched up lenses.

    General Comments

    I wish it had a water bottle holder on the end like one of their smaller and less expensive bags. I'm not sure why companies don't keep the 'pro's' from one bag when they make a new one.

    This bag is awesome! Made with high quality standards, is a must to anyone who flys. It can store almost anything and still has room inside for more! Very light weight and very comfortable to transport on shoulder strap or hand. Highly recommended to student pilots or professionals.

    General Comments

    I'm just a student and bought this to replace the cheap Jepesen bag that came with my kit. I haven't started flying yet, but so far this thing swallows all my books, my MacBook Pro, my iPad, without issue. I can't wait to get my headset, flashlight, fuel tester,etc and really turn this into a flight bag!
