I am a student pilot that loves my technology so I specifically got this bag for its laptop sleeve and business looks. For the last year I have used it and I have some thoughts. To start off, its a really nice bag. There are only two things I absolutely do not like about it. The first thing is that it has balance issues. If you load this bad boy up, chances are when you set it down it will fall backwards on the laptop side. This was extremely frustrating but you can get by this by propping it up against things. My second complaint is that it does not hold all 15.6 laptops. I have a gaming computer that is a 15.6 but it is a bit bigger. Laptops like these will not fit in this bag. Macbook pros? No problem. I have an Acer Nitro 5 to give all you out there the size idea that will not fit into this bag. If your computer is smaller than mine, it will fit. All in all this is a great bag. For these two issues though I have moved on and am only providing you this review as a critical one - not a review to bash it. It is very sturdy and has a lot of awesome features with good materials. Id give it 3.5 starsOctober 30, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesI’ll do it againI enjoy shopping at Sporty’s always seamless. ??October 18, 2019Purchased

7 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?YesFlight Gear HP approach BagI would only recommend this bag if the following modifications were made:
1. Add more padding front and rear, where laptop computer is stored.
2. Add an extra zipper on the pouch where the radio is stored.
3. Add padding on the bottom of the bag.
4. Add slip-in compartments in the front pouch and main pouch areas
5. Double double zippers on all pouches compartmentsSeptember 29, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use3 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesNice, but could use more organizational featuresI bought this bag to replace an older, much larger bag made for paper charts. The new bag is nice but it's pretty basic, i.e., it holds a tablet and logbook, some additional papers, a hand-held radio or Stratus, and one set of headphones. For version 2.0 I suggest a couple of additional pockets/slots for pens, flashlight, water bottle, etc.August 26, 2018Purchased

1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesI would add a zipper to the Handheld radio pouch so you can zip it up from both sides to support the antenna sticking out. I ended up putting the handheld on the side and put my Stratus in the hand held pouch.
Great bag for an "almost" paperless instrument pilot!June 8, 2018Purchased
1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAlmost perfect.I have been using my flight gear approach bag for about one month and so far it's been great. It fits everything I need without being any larger than necessary. I really like the water bottle sleeve and dedicated headset pocket, two must haves when I was shopping for a new bag. My one complaint is there are no dedicated pen slots anywhere on the bag! I rectified this by adding a couple large gear mods and throwing my pens in there but I still think having no pen slots to be a design oversight. Gear mods are perfect for my charging cables and extra batteries etc. As a professional pilot I like the all black look of this bag. I probably would have ordered the crosswind bag instead if it was available in the same colour scheme.April 6, 2018Purchased
1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAwesome bag, quality, compact and good lookingI have used this bag in training for about 3 weeks now. Pockets are super easy to open and it feels like quality workmanship. The only downside is that I would like the main pocket to be a tad larger but that is more of a personal preference.January 25, 2018Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGood bag, but not perfectThe bad has room for all my tech and headset as well as my large iPad Pro. I only wish it had more compartments to segregate things better. Maybe a way to keep the cord of my headset from tangling. The bag is an overall winner, but it leaves out some details, possibly for more money, that would make it a perfect bag.January 12, 2018Purchased
