1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesPerfect Gear BagI just received my new Crosswind bag. I absolutely love. I’m a gear guy. I was using an bag that was a freebee at conference.
The headset pouch fits my Lightspeed headphone perfectly. I was able to ditch the factory case that took up a lot of room in my old bag.
I fly with an IPad mini. I purchased the mod and it’s perfect. It’s very accessible and protected in the mod case.
Lots of pockets for cables, battery back up, kneeboards and checklists.July 13, 2019Purchased
1 month agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAmazing! Exceeds expectations.This bag is a game changer. I was using my Air Force issued green flight bag for around 4 months, and unfortunately I kept losing items and always found myself searching for minutes to find what I needed.
Insert the Flight Gear HP Crosswind bag, and after 2 weeks of using it no more lost items. I love that my Bose A20s fit perfectly, and it has plenty of room for the following:
Stratux w/ external GPS.
CX-3 Flight Computer.
Thick kneeboard checklist.
iPad Mini 4.
ipad yoke mount.
ram mount for iPhone X.
6 pens & 2 pencils.
2 golf bag size towels.
Even with engraving it shipped the same day and arrived in less than 48 hours.
The engraving is phenomenal, they did a really good job for the Air Force flyer wings.
I highly recommend you add this bag to your training costs, no need to look further for anything else.July 10, 2019Purchased

2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance2 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value2 / 5Would You Recommend?NoBag is way smaller than I thought making it useless.I looked at the measurements and everything seemed ok. But when the bag arrived it was way too small. Headphone compartment is too small to fit my David Clark’s. I literally have to adjust them, then cram them in there to the point where I know eventually the cord connection will fail one day.
The large pouch, large logbook holder, and radio pouch I ordered are all too big for my use with this bag. I have to carry a second bag now which defeats the purpose. I got it embroidered so I’m stuck with it smh.
It’s good quality though. A very pretty dust collecting paperweight as I have to use my older, not as attractive duffle bag to avoid carrying 2 bags.April 23, 2019Purchased
4 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGood size, light bagThis light weight shoulder bag is a perfect first flight bag. My Sierra headset fits nicely in the headset pocket. My kneeboard tablet and all other essentials fit in the spacious center compartment with room for things I don't even know I need yet. I did not purchase any of the pocket organization items as yet, but know that I will to stay organized.April 22, 2019Purchased
