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.

DurabilityHeavy-duty handle
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.

CustomizableOptional 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.

Sent it back
After having two other Sporty's bags in the last 8 years this one was a disappointment. It was smaller than expected and the draw string sewn to the outside pocket to keep things from falling out wasn't sewn in place. After receiving it I ask to sent it back for a refund. Their 30 day refund policy does work and they do stand behind their word of returns if you are not 100% satisfied. I will be back again to shop at Sporty's because of that.

It's ""okay,"" but...
I knew I was getting a "smaller" bag, but it advertised multiple pockets--interior and exterior. I don't carry a lot of stuff, but found the interior pockets are so small, little can fit in them. Many bulkier items (i.e. cables) must go in the headset pocket. The "hanger" for the headset is nothing more than a strap with plastic buckle. The space for the iPad is nice, though. It will work, but I'm not impressed. SPORTY'S CUSTOMER SERVICE RESPONSE Thank you for the review. Looking for a larger bag? Check out the Captain's Flight Bag #9903A.

Disappointed in the quality of materials
The size and layout of the bag is ideal for one headset and all my gear, however there are several drawbacks that wold cause me to NOT recommend this bag and recommend Sporty's take a look at improving the quality of the interior construction. There is soft padding but that provides little rigidity in the bottom because it is not reinforced, so abrasion, and water resistance is questionable. Watch where you put it down. Biggest concern interior pockets and nylon do not appear to be sturdy. Also the carrying handle although comfortable, it is doubtful that it will stand up to daily use.
Time will tell how well this bag will hold up.

Great Flight Bag
This flight bag is outstanding in my opinion. It is not too big nor small. I can fit everything I need to fly in it and I'm not digging around in it trying to find something as I had to with my last flight bag. I would really recommend this flight bag to any pilot, new or old.

Excellent! Exactly what I was looking for.
The iPad Flight Gear Bag was well worth the price. It was compact and yet just large enough to hold all of my gear required for training. Excellent quality. I would recommend to anyone.

Very pleased with purchase.
The Flight Gear HP iPad bag provides ample room and spare pockets to organize and store my iPad, mophie charger, headgear, batteries, yes, VFR sectionals, wallet, cell phone, sunglasses and still room for pens , hand held radio, flashlight, keys and insurance copies. It is large enough yet compact to stow nearby to access when flying. I wish I had purchased it sooner.

Great flight bag for the iPad oriented pilot
Was surprised that the bag was bigger than expected. I was able to put all my essentials and a few small extras. Seems to be durable thus far, I presume it will last as long as my old 'flight gear' bag that still is in good condition from 2008. Easy to keep organized, and take from plane to plane. (CFI) Good job Sporty's!

Efficient use of space
Well i wanted a smaller, more compact bag, and I got it. I think they use the special real estate agent lens in the pictures, because it is much smaller than you'd gauge by looking at the pics. Maybe about the size of a school backpack you'd buy a 5 year old. But of course, very sturdy and it appears to be intelligently designed. Lots of zippered compartments. I like the fact that the inside is light blue - my old one is cavernous but black inside and out, which means smaller items may as well have gone to Narnia. It will remain to be seen whether I can carry everything I am used to, but if not maybe that is not a bad thing...

Will it fit the elite headset with or without the elite headset case?
A shopper on Mar 13, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The inside dimensions of the headphone compartment are 5-inches deep by 12-inches high by 10 inches wide. (Actually slightly wider and higher than I have given. I keep by headphones in my airplane so the headphone compartment is used for odds & ends. I keep my iPad in the back pocket and a Dell D430 computer in the "iPad zipper pocket" which has the same dimensions as the headphone compartment but is only 1-inch deep. The bag is very well made: fits my requirements to a T!
