Flight Gear HP




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.

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.

Customizable
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.

Awesome bag, quality, compact and good looking
I have used this bag in training for about 3 weeks now. Pockets are super easy to open and it feels like quality workmanship. The only downside is that I would like the main pocket to be a tad larger but that is more of a personal preference.

Good bag, but not perfect
The bad has room for all my tech and headset as well as my large iPad Pro. I only wish it had more compartments to segregate things better. Maybe a way to keep the cord of my headset from tangling. The bag is an overall winner, but it leaves out some details, possibly for more money, that would make it a perfect bag.

Perfect for my needs as a student pilot. The headset storage is big enough for my DC headset. Inside area will fit all my books.

This flight bag is fantastic for a student or private pilot during training. Holds everything I need for my training and is very durable. If you are looking for a over the shoulder bag, this is a great starter bag. I wish it was a bit wider so it didn’t hold everything so snug but I suppose that is a benefit so things don’t slide around

It works great.
Perfect for my flying needs. The only improvement that I would like to see is I wish it had two zippers on the hand held radio compartment. So that it could be zipped on each side of the antenna.
I liked it so well I bought on for my girlfriend.

Very pleased with the design utility
I wanted the older Flight Gear Navigator bag but couldn't find it. The new HP line has styling I don't like, but this bag retains the all-black I wanted and also meets all my flight bag needs. If only it were made of a more "TravelPro" type of fabric, it would be almost perfect. The only minus I have is the handle; I don't like the Velcro wrap-around handle and would greatly prefer a two-handles bag, or a snap-together handle, as more convenient and quiet than the Velcro ripping siund and hassle. This bag holds all my first officer EFB needs, complete with headset, EFB, additional iPad and laptop, a book, logbook, chargers and cables, water bottle, flashlight, sunglasses and second pair of Rx glasses, passport, and the obligatory folding umbrella and Tylenol/sudafed bottles we all carry. Anything else goes in the lunch cooler anyway, right? I just hope it lasts....
