    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.

    Too small for a student pilot
    Pros

    ( No Pros Listed From Reviewer )

    Cons

    I bought this as a student pilot. The 'padded headset pocket' does not fit my $600 headset, even without the protective case. the last thing I want is my headset being damaged. So I have to sacrafice book and manual storage for the headset.

    Sturdy, great quality but a little small
    Pros

    Great quality of all components including zippers, carry handles and stitching. Good pockets internally and externally.

    Cons

    It is smaller than I thought. Outer compartment holds single headset snugly. Inner compartment is roomy for a large log book and a few other items but nothing bulky.

    General Comments

    I currently carry glasses, a single headset, fuel tester jar, logbook, knee pad and iPad + iPad suction mount. Another headset will completely fill this bag.

    the IPad blocks the Velcro from closing the IPad pocket, which makes the IPad insecure and easy to fall out.

    Pros

    Well made and durable.

    Cons

    Slightly too small.

    General Comments

    Good choice when storage space is at a premium. Otherwise, I would recommend a larger bag.

    Great Bag for Training
    Pros

    The size is perfect for the Cessna 152 I am training in. Good quality, lightweight but durable construction. Looks good as well.

    Cons

    The pocket for the headphone is a bit tight for my Lightspeed Zulu. I can get it in and out without difficulty, but it is tight.

    I've only used this bag for a few flights, but so far, so good. Seems like its well made. It holds 4 headsets, iPad and iPad dash mount easily.

    Good bag, needs some tune-ups.
    Pros

    Perfect layout and overall size for everything I carry.

    Cons

    Needs a few tweaks.

    General Comments

    Needs a handheld radio pocket. I use the water bottle pocket, which now means I need another pocket.

    The mesh pocket for sunglasses (under the cover flap) is way too small for adult pilot sunglasses. There was ample room to make it larger, they just didn't.

    Headset pocket is small, quite a tight fit to stuff a pair of A-20s in.

    Though new to pilot goodies, I have found this bag to be a joy. Holds a surprising amount: all my books, study guides, FAR/AIM, maps, etc, and is well organized for other necessary items (Bose fit perfectly, easy access to fuel tester). No wasted space. The embroidery is a nice touch.

    The flight bag is great, with all kinds of pilot specific utility built in. I think the best part, just like all my purchases from Sport's is how fast they get your purchase to you. I had the Crosswind embroidered and they still got it to me the next day!

    Great bag, great value
    Pros

    The size of this bag is perfect for me in my current status as a student/weekend pilot. It's just big enoug to hold my headset, log book, kneeboard, and some other necessities. It's very durable and surpassed my expectations in this regard. The monogram (extra fee) is well done and adds to the impressive features of the bag.

    Cons

    You might outgrow this bag as you progress in your flying and start long cross-country overnight type trips, if that's your goal.
