Perfect for my needs.Great bag for me. I carry 2 headsets, charts, books on flying in the Bahamas and Florida, keys to the plane and keys to the hangar. I like the multiple pockets for storing small items since it makes it easy to keep my gear organized without having to dig through one large pocket. The bag was lighter and roomier than I thought it would be and I expect to use it for many more years.August 15, 2019Purchased

I'm hoping this bag last just as long or longer. if I where to design a bag I would take the Captain's Bag and make the left extra headset compartment into a water bottle cooler, and the pouch next to it for my hand held radio. I don't need access to flashlights. Overall I like the bag.Captain's BagAugust 5, 2019Purchased
1 month agoDurability4 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesGreat bag with a few minor issuesI just got back into GA after 20 years of military flying and being out of GA for 15 year. I bought this bag to replace one that was falling apart. I am working on my single engine commercial and CFII and hope to start teaching soon.
- Dual headset pockets fit both my headsets (Sigtronics). Nice to have if my student needs to borrow one or to have one for my wife/daughter.
- Tablet pocket and quick access zipper will fit my 10.1" table if using a normal sized/not oversized like Otterbox case. I was worried that I would not be able to get it in and out easily.
- Big enough for 1/2" binder. A habit I have from military flying is keeping a binder of stuff that I accumulate over time we call "plastic brains" or "gouge" (training aids, master copies of things like flight logs, etc.) I was concerned that this bag would not be big enough for a small binder but it fits well.
- Velcro accessory pockets are nice for small things like USB chargers/cables, etc.
- Front pocket is very nice and has room for eyeglass cases, wallet, phone and other stuff all at the same time.
- Nice shoulder strap included.
- Overall nice color scheme and look.
- I am a little old school so I probably carry more that the average person now-a-days. It is able to carry both headsets, a professional pilot logbook, an old school full sized E6B, plotter, tablet, a 1/2" binder, my kneeboard, a couple of the accessory attachments, small flashlight, fuel sump drainer, glasses, overglasses (shades), wallet, phone, small screwdriver, extra paperwork (flight logs), some sick sacks, and a couple of sectionals (I know, I said I am old school) and everything has it's place, is easily accessible, and there is still some room for a large water bottle.
Ideas for improvement
- Replace the shoulder strap connectors and attachment points with metal hardware. I have always hated plastic (why I dropped down the durability to 4 stars).
- Put the tablet pocket on the other side of the bag. With my tablet in the tablet slot and wallet/keys/phone in the front pocket the bag tends to tip over even with some counterweight (big logbook and the accessory pockets) on the Velcro side (opposite from front pocket). I have just learned to put the front pocket against the seat and that helps but makes it somewhat inconvenient if you need to get into the front pocket.
Overall well thought out and solid bag. I am sure I will get many years of use and lots of cool trips.August 2, 2019Purchased
2 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability3 / 5Performance4 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesOver all great product. Could improve/ when you put in basic flight items it has a tendency to rollover. And collapses when lifted by top handleJune 13, 2019Durability1 / 5Reliability1 / 5Performance1 / 5Ease Of Use4 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?NoPoor constructionThe bag ripped along the seam on an exterior compartment as well as where the strap is sewn to the outer bag.
Sportys refused to send me a new bag (since it was after 30 days) without first sending them the bag in for repair which seemed unreasonable as I would be left without a bag for a week or two.June 10, 2019Durability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value4 / 5Would You Recommend?YesCaptain BagReally like the bag, easy to load it.

4 months agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAwesome BagAwesome replacement to my very well used Sporty’s Flight Bag of maybe 18-20 years!May 10, 2019Purchased
1 year agoDurability5 / 5Reliability5 / 5Performance5 / 5Ease Of Use5 / 5Value5 / 5Would You Recommend?YesAwesome Flight BagI'm a new Flight Instructor and needed something to put all my gear in, and was willing to put a little more money into something higher quality. This bag did not disappoint! It has pockets inside pockets (and I'm still finding more pockets) for everything you need. I got mine embroidered with my name as well, and it turned out sharp and clean. My DC headset fits into the end pocket, and I don't have enough stuff to fill everything else up yet, but it's been perfect so far.
I would say that's it's a big flight bag, so it may be bigger than same may need, but the interior space makes it worth it. I've noticed that mine is bigger than most around the flight school, but it works perfectly for what I have!
The build is pretty solid, but since it's still fairly new, I can't reliably rate the durability, but it seems like it should handle the daily abuse of an active pilot.March 7, 2019Purchased
6 months agoDurability4 / 5Reliability4 / 5Performance3 / 5Ease Of Use2 / 5Value3 / 5Would You Recommend?NoimprovementsIt was a disappointment to find out that the inner size of the main compartment does not accept the document size A4 (european standard) the difference is about 25/30 mm in horizontal dimension so the optimal use without stress is not possible.
Also height could be 30mm higher enabling a much better usage.
