Very very poor quality and durability. The velcro is already useless, doesn't hold flaps closed at all. The strap isn't centered (the thicker part with rubber around it is stitched closer on one side). The zipper inverted somehow and faces up, making it difficult to close. Not nearly big enough for an iPad with a case and a headset.July 21, 2015Durability1 / 5Reliability2 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value2 / 5Not durable enoughI originally bought the bag as it was advertised back in Feb 2014 as being suitable for instructors. Well I am afraid it was not up to the twice weekly outing and the fabric has frayed away from the zipper on the top flap. It is a shame as it was quite handy but now looks shabby - certainly it has not met its alleged 6 year warranty. Iit lasted 15 months for me. I would sent it back but I bought it in the U.S and took it home to England and it's just not worth it. If you want something durable look elsewhere.June 10, 2015Durability2 / 5Reliability2 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value2 / 5Pros: -Small and efficient bag that is perfect for those looking to carry a headset, iPad, and a few charts and chargers. -Well organized. Cons: -Bag showed rips in outer material around the zipper area after just 2 months of use. -Inner liner grips rubberized materials making them very difficult to pull out of bag and put inside. -Does not fit iPad in the interior compartment that it was designed for unless the iPad is in a very thin case or no case at all. (Does not fit regular sized iPad with OtterBox Case even with plastic stand/cover excluded). -Headset must be removed first before an iPad is to be placed in bag or removed from bag or it will not fit. -No shoulder strap. As a full time flight instructor who flies GA around the country this bag looked like the perfect item for someone who utilizes electronics heavily and carries a few charts, a flashlight, some extra batteries, pens/pencils, a transceiver, and electronics chargers/cables. At my company, we are required to keep iPads in company purchased cases that are slightly bulky but should still be able to fit in a flight bag easily. Although I have managed to fit my iPad in the bag, I have to pull my headset out each time I want to take it out or put it back in. After using the bag for 2 months, it has held up just fine except for the rips around the zippers. After watching videos of Sporty's throwing bags full of bricks off of buildings I thought that this would hold up better.October 19, 2014Durability5 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Pros: Great general purpose bag, just the right size for keeping essentials protected and close at hand. Cons: A pocket for sunglasses and iPad charger/cords would be a plus I carry this bag on my Harley back and forth to work. Great pocket for the SP 400. Just right for an iPad a few charts a calculator and cell iPhone. Pockets for pen, flashlight, and fuel checker. Leave out the charts and it doubles as a lunch bag! Great for the cockpit and daily use. Just the right size!August 20, 2014Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Pros: Nice construction. Durable. Nice padded compartment for ipad and clip for keys. Cons: The front flap pocket should be enlarged. As it is you can only put flat items in it. It doesn't expand and it pretty much useless. I'm carrying my headset, flashlight, Ipad Mini with the executive kneeboard and strap, logbook, charts, foggles, wallet, keys, iphone, ect. There is not a good place for Ipad cords or external GPS antenna. If front flap pocket was expandable all this would fit fine and this would be a perfect bag for me. elastic strap for pens/pencil would be nice, as it is now then the bag falls on it's side the pencils fall out of the compartments on the side.May 3, 2014Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5April 22, 2014Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5April 6, 2014Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Pros: Everything I need for local training flights fits neatly into this compact bag. This includes an iPad mini and a Quiet Technologies earphone type headset. Cons: For those who use a conventional headset, space for other gear will be limited. Also, the front pocket is limited to very thin/flat items since it does not expand.March 28, 2014Durability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Pros: Perfect size for helicopter flight, holds headset, fuel tester, kneeboard, IPad Mini, and transceiver. Cons: Could use another smaller pouch for ID and pilot license. The handle seems awkward. Attractive colors and seems to be rugged. Overall, just what I needed at the right price. Too soon to tell how durable, or how long it will last.November 25, 2013
