Our handsome Leather Flight Gear collection, popular among pilots for its rugged construction and great looks, has now been updated to match our redesigned Flight Gear line. All the features of our new fabric bags are here: more gear pockets, extra chart pockets, organizer sections, new protective features and more. One thing that hasn’t changed: you’ll still find the finest quality leather available in a pilot’s bag. Each of our Leather Flight Gear bags is crafted from top quality black calfskin, with genuine YKK zippers and tough metal hardware. It’s as hardworking as it is attractive, designed by our team of pilots to survive daily use in the real world.
Our best-selling Original bag is a great choice for pilots of all levels, with its large capacity and flexible organizer options. Don’t choose between protecting your headset or GPS—take it all! You won’t find a better designed, better looking bag.

An extra large headset pocket is on the end of the Original Flight Gear Bag, and is large enough to fit most aviation headsets—even with a case. The outside of the headset pocket has a small, flat pocket for storing a fuel tester or flashlight. The back of the bag has a pass-thru slot for slipping the bag over the handles of rolling luggage.
The opposite side of the bag features two custom designed pockets for important pilot gear: an aviation radio and a portable weather receiver. The transceiver pocket has an hourglass-shaped flap, allowing you to keep the antenna on your radio. When not in use, the antenna can be stowed in a special sleeve on the inside of the transceiver pocket. The second pocket is padded and sized for storing an ADS-B receiver or small GPS.
An organizer pocket on the front of the bag is great for pens, business cards, logbooks, and more. An integrated key clip helps to keep your keys from getting lost and a zipper pocket keeps important $100 hotdog menus safely stowed. This front pocket has provisions (known as an embroidery window) for personalizing your bag with optional embroidery.
The massive main compartment is the focal point for this bag. A padded iPad pocket allows quick access to your most important accessory. Two pockets on the sidewalls keep all your charging cables organized. The top flap closes with dual, heavy-duty #10 zippers, and a padded carry handle is sure to stand up to the rigors of flight training.
A unique Gear Mod wall is found at the back of the main pocket. This wall was specifically designed with a soft, velvet-like material. This is perfect for attaching Gear Mods, independent pockets that attach with hook and loop fasteners and make it easy to further customize your Flight Gear bag. Need an extra pocket for a backup battery? There’s a Gear Mod for that (sold separately).
