Flight Gear HP




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.

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.

Customizable
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 size, poorly executed.
Good size, not too bulky. Way too much wasted space inside the pockets. Several areas that could support zipped pouches, elastic loops for batteries, pens, a clip for keys, etc... that is wasted. I went for the embroidered option, which precludes my returning it, otherwise I would not keep it.

Love it
I received the case Yesterday even, I love it, it's not too big or too small it's just right, I love the embroidery that is on the case that has my name and the airplane, I actually brought this case for my headset, the good thing about It, I also can carry my laptop and other stuff in it, like I said before the case is great, I'm not a real pilot, I'm a FSX Pilot and needed a case like this to keep my headset and my other stuff that I use for my flight simulator, my only wish is that my joystick could fit in it, but other than that I love the case and I glad that I brought it, it was worth the money, thank you

Nice looking bag
I've had the bag for a few weeks now and all I can say is that is has met all of my expectations. The material feels strudy and the stitching looks tight.Has enough room to carry the essentials for a regular flight comfortably. Would definitely recommend the bag.

Roomy, Great Fabric, Professional Looking Bag
This bag was purchased for an older former pilot to pack personal items he might need during the day if he is away from home. He commented on how much space there was in the bag and the ease of use of the zippers. It was embroidered with wings, his rank and name. The bag is very professional looking and the fabric looks like it will last forever. This was a great purchase and I highly recommend it for any use.

The picture of the back has what appears to be a strap with stitching. Will it slip over the the handle of a rolling suitcase? What's the width of the "hole" in the strapping if it will fit on the handle of a rolling suitcase?
A shopper on Mar 17, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the strap on the back has about a 7.5 inch opening with a small piece of velcro in the middle. It works on my standard rolling suitcases but the top carry handle has a smaller opening that also fits the handles and would be a bit more secure. Either strap should work fine.
