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.
Flight Gear HP


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.

CustomizableCrosswind 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.

Great bag for flight students or pilots who want to fire lots of gear into a small a relatively small bag.
This product was exactly what I was expecting when I bought it. As you become a more advanced flight student a little more space and gear mod areas would be nice. Overall, this bag holds a lot of gear and is very durable.
This is just a professional size football to give a size comparison.
This bag has just enough room for the essentials as a student pilot.

Perfect Gear Bag
I 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.

Amazing! 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.
Required documents.
iPad Mini 4.
ipad yoke mount.
ram mount for iPhone X.
water bottle.
sunglasses case.
pocket knife.
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.

Bag 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.

Good size, light bag
This 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.

Will it hold an iPad Pro (the 12 inch one)?
A shopper on Oct 22, 2016

Hello happy owners... Im Private Pilot working on my Commercial. Did you think this flight bag can carry a PHAK book, FAR/AIM and a David Clark headset?
Jose M on Jul 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It can easily hold all of these. I typically don't put my D.C. headset in the bag but it has room for it. The PHAK book you'll have to lay flat down, the FAR/AIM can go either flat or upright. Side pocket is a little tight for the headset but main compartment has plenty of room. I typically put an extra handheld radio, flashlight, spare charts, and kneeboard in there and it all fits.
What is the dimensions of the headset pocket?
Ron S on Feb 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The headset pocket measures 7.5" x 10" x 3.5".
It fits my David Clark H10-13.4 nicely.
Will my Samsung Galaxy Book (like the MS Surface Pro) fit in the Crosswind Bag?
Scott F on Jun 3, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The 10.6 may fit, but the 12 likely will not depending on where you want it to go. The inside and outside open pockets fit my iPad Pro 9.7 with a bit of room to spare (actual opening is about 11” across). If you want to put it in the main compartment, the clear dimensions are 12Lx6.75Wx8.75H.
Can this flight bag carry a PHAK book?
Jose M on Jun 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I love this bag...very durable. The end pocket is the same height and width as the one on my Avcomm bag, where I once stored my PHAK book. The only difference is that the top of this pocket is curved, rather than squared off. However, it seems as though it should fit just fine.
Will a regular three ring binder fit in this bag?
Sander L on Nov 22, 2016
BEST ANSWER: My ASA Study guides fit in it... They're a typical "book". The length and width would be fine and I would say the height should fit also.

A shopper on Dec 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, it does not have a Velcro Strap.

ClearProp on Dec 21, 2018

Cpacesar on Apr 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This bag does not have a specific place for the iPad.
Why cant i see the embroidery options??
A shopper on Feb 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Please scroll to the bottom of the products page to see the embroidery options.
Is it machine washable?
Andrew L on Jan 31, 2018
BEST ANSWER: No, I had the small bag and it had some cardboard in it to keep its shape. Ruined it. Purchased the captains bag with two headset sides as replacement. Just use dishwasher detergent and a brush on small areas. Since mine has two Bose headsets and an iPad in it I don’t throw it around on the ground so it stays clean. One thing, get the big bag so you can grow. You might have just one headset now but you’ll find you will purchase another for your friends whom aren’t pilots and all the other stuff you’ll accumulate. It’s a nice bag and I like it. Also purchased the smaller pouches to hold wires,plugs,charging cables, etc.
Staff answered it has a fuel tester/water bottle pouch, the water bottle holder is on opposite end of headset holder where the pouch I see is only in one picture but not the rest, which one is correct?
Denis on Nov 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The fuel tester pocket is on the side of the headset pouch. The water bottle pouch in on the end. If you look at the fourth picture, the one with the red background, it shows the fuel tester pouch.
I'm actually looking at this for husband to fit atop 4 wheel carry on luggage. Needs to hold his shave kit, newspaper etc...stuff he needs as passenger. Is this the correct size?
Rose S on Nov 17, 2017
BEST ANSWER: This flight bag has exterior measurements of 16” l x 8.5” w x 10” h. Interior of the main pocket measures approximately 12" l x 7" w x 9" h
Does it come with any mods or is that all separate?
Michael G on Jul 4, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The mods are all separate.
I might be blind, but what's the weight of the crosswind bag?
A shopper on Jun 26, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The bag itself weighs approximately 3.5 lbs.
What material is it made of?
Brian P on Jan 27, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The material is a "Rip Stop polyester blend". The rip stop is the way the material is sewn it will prevent a tear from continuing along the material.
Can you fit a4 ifr kneeboard in the crosswind bag?
Fiona R on Dec 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The flight bag measures 16" long x 8.5 " wide by 10" high.
Will It Fit a binder?
