Flight Gear HP
High Performance pilot bags designed by you

Sporty’s Flight Gear bags have set the standard for nearly three decades. With pilot-friendly designs and high quality construction, tens of thousands of pilots have trusted Sporty’s Flight Gear bags to protect and store their gear.
Flight Gear HP


But we’re never satisfied; we are always looking to improve our products. For this design we turned to you, our customers and asked what
enhancements you wanted on the next line of flight bags. Add the thousands of reviews we’ve received on our previous bags, and we had a massive list of features that really matter for pilots.

The result is the ultimate combination of quality, features and price. You can pay more, but you won’t find a better flight bag. There is a bag to fit every mission in Flight Gear HP.

Durability
What good is a bag if it doesn’t last? There are few things more annoying than a broken zipper or failing seams. We work directly with the factory to ensure these bags will meet or exceed the high expectations of pilots everywhere. Reinforced handles, non-slip shoulder straps, quick grab zipper pulls, padded iPad pockets and strengthened hardware make Sporty’s Flight Gear bags ideal for any mission.

Weight
While durability is extremely important, pilots always stress about weight. The new bags needed to be lightweight, yet without sacrificing quality. We found the perfect balance of lighter fabric and hardware, without skimping on the zippers or stitching. The result is the lightest bags we’ve ever produced.

Pilot-centric
Aviation has changed drastically in the last 10 years. Bags designed to carry 40 pounds of paper charts have given way to smaller, smarter bags for electronics. Sporty’s new Flight Gear bags feature custom pockets for storing and protecting headsets and iPads. We also added lots of organization for cables and other gear.

High Visibility Interior
What good is storing your gear if you can’t find it? Flight Gear HP features a high visibility interior, so your gear won’t be hiding in a dark corner when you really need it.

CustomizableCrosswind Gear Mods
Every pilot has their own list of must have items for flying, but everyone’s list is different. Bags must be customizable to adapt to the needs of modern aviators. We’ve accomplished this goal by having a line of optional accessory pockets called Gear Mods that can be moved from one bag to another. We took this a step further and made our Gear Mods compatible with our iPad kneeboards, so you can add accessories to the side of your leg. After all, searching for a charging cable and backup battery pack can be a real pain in a tight cockpit.

Personalization
Your bag should have your name on it. Sporty’s Flight Gear Bags offer optional custom embroidery for initials, names, N-numbers…we can make your bag yours.

Perfect for Instrument Student with gadgets
I have my headset in one end and tons of pens/pencils in the other. I fit my logbook, kneepad, 2 IFR study manuals, notebook, 8x10 solar charger, Samsung 9.7 tablet, flying receipts, Stratux, and A/FD inside with room to set loose items on top. On the sides I fit all my electrical/charging cables, batteries for devices, and I still have a little zipper pocket with nothing in it.

This bag is perfect!

good buy
This bag has plenty of storage space and pockets. I consolidated three smaller flight bags into this one which makes it so much easier to find things in the cockpit. The blue interior also increases visibility of items in the main central pocket. Only thing I could use is a attached key holder/clip otherwise a good investment no matter what your pilot ratings are. I put four stars for durability and reliability because I have not owned the bag long enough to rate these.

Just right!
This flight bag is perfect for a small airplane pilot. I can carry everything I need and still gave my two hands free. It's everything as advertised.

Smaller than what I expected
My original Flight Gear bag that was similar in size was a bit bigger than this one. It was the black/grey in color and was constructed better than this one. Unfortunately, it was stolen from my car together with every pilot gadget in it. I was trying to buy another one that is exactly the same but Sporty's no longer offer that and instead sells the crosswind bag. SPORTY'S CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE Thank you for the review. If you are looking for a larger bag, check out our Captain's Flight Gear HP bag. It is our largest and has tons of space.

Great Bag, don't order the strap
The online description and videos were unclear so I ordered the shoulder strap separately. When I got the bag it had a shoulder strap inside. Sporty's was awesome and took the extra strap back, although I did have to pay the shipping (slightly disappointing). Their description could have included that for clarity. However, in reference to the actual bag, I like it very much. It is perfect for a short day trip, everyday use or instruction. Plenty of room for the day to day cockpit use and it can be organized to fit the basics. If you are one that likes to take a lot of stuff (iPad, mounts, gps, cords, paper charts, etc) you may want to think about the next size up or the backpack. The pockets and zippers seem sturdy enough. Haven't had it in the rain yet so I can't attest to its ability to keep things dry but I am sure that day is coming. Blue Skys......

Great size bag
This is my first flight bag to purchase, and I'm very pleased. It's a great size, not bulky, and looks great. The embroidery looks nice and clean. I'll be using this bag for a long time with it being made of a durable material. I definitely recommend this to anyone who's in the market for a flight bag!

Smaller than expected
The bag looks fine online, but the main compartment is very small, and it's a very tight fit for my headset in the headset bag. Not enough inner pockets so I had to spend more money on gear mods to store small items.

A shopper on Oct 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: 16” l x 8.5” w x 10”
Hello happy owners... Im Private Pilot working on my Commercial. Did you think this flight bag can carry a PHAK book, FAR/AIM and a David Clark headset?
Jose M on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It can easily hold all of these. I typically don't put my D.C. headset in the bag but it has room for it. The PHAK book you'll have to lay flat down, the FAR/AIM can go either flat or upright. Side pocket is a little tight for the headset but main compartment has plenty of room. I typically put an extra handheld radio, flashlight, spare charts, and kneeboard in there and it all fits.
What is the dimensions of the headset pocket?
Ron S on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Hard to measure but i use the Bose A20 and it has plenty of room for the headset and the cable. I bet larger headsets would feet great as well.
Can this flight bag carry a PHAK book?
Jose M on Jun 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I love this bag...very durable. The end pocket is the same height and width as the one on my Avcomm bag, where I once stored my PHAK book. The only difference is that the top of this pocket is curved, rather than squared off. However, it seems as though it should fit just fine.
Will a regular three ring binder fit in this bag?
Sander L on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My ASA Study guides fit in it... They're a typical "book". The length and width would be fine and I would say the height should fit also.
Does it come with any mods or is that all separate?
Michael G on Jul 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The mods are all separate.
I might be blind, but what's the weight of the crosswind bag?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The bag itself weighs approximately 3.5 lbs.
One of the pictures of the exterior of the bag shows a pocket on the left side that could be used to place the fuel sump tester. The rest of the pictures show that it does Not have the pocket. Which is accurate?
A shopper on Mar 24, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The flight bag does have a pocket for a fuel tester/water bottle.
What material is it made of?
Brian P on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The material is a "Rip Stop polyester blend". The rip stop is the way the material is sewn it will prevent a tear from continuing along the material.
Can you fit a4 ifr kneeboard in the crosswind bag?
Fiona R on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The flight bag measures 16" long x 8.5 " wide by 10" high.
Will It Fit a binder?
Sander L on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: As long as its not a crazy big binder it will be fine. Would not recommend any binder with over 3 inches in width
