All-black version ideal for pro pilots

For professional pilots who prefer an understated, all-black look, the Lift XL Pro is ideal. Features a solid black exterior but with the signature orange interior so items are easy to find in the dark. Slides over your rolling luggage for easy transport.

Flight Outfitters has a reputation for making some the hardest working, best looking flight bags in the world. The new Lift XL is a larger version of the top-rated Lift Bag, adding more room for storage (including two headsets) and more organization options, all while retaining the signature design features that make Flight Outfitters bags so useful in the cockpit.

Features:

  • Spacious front compartment with generous padding protects two headsets
  • Removable divider allows you to reconfigure front compartment quickly
  • Four elastic battery holders mean you’ll always have extra headset batteries
  • Large center pocket has a quick-access area for storing your tablet
  • Separate center section accommodates laptop computers, even larger 15” models
  • Back pocket includes six small and three medium mesh pockets to keep cords organized
  • Interior zip pocket stores passports, ID or other sensitive documents
  • Rear slash pocket stores paperwork, or can be unzipped to slide over rolling luggage handles
  • Quick-access exterior pockets for flashlights and pens
  • Steel reinforced carry handle can withstand heavy loads
  • Padded shoulder strap makes the Lift XL easy to carry, but is easily removed
  • Bright orange interior makes it easy to find even the smallest items

Measures 18”w x 10.5”h x 9”d overall.

Torn after one week use
I'll agree with others that the bag's layout is nice, but the durability is severely lacking. After one week's light use, the seams started tearing. Don't let the appearance of the rugged cable reinforced handles deceive you, this is a frail bag best not destined for any serious use. Very disappointing and expensive at that. Furthermore, I sent my feedback to the manufacturer who assured me the situation would be rectified but after that initial email, nothing had happened. Buyer beware.

The layout and design of the bag is nice, however my first bag the seams ripped and fell off my shoulder. Sporty replaced the bag but I’m seeing issues the the harness strap eyelet seams again. Also, I wish it could hold a water bottle the edge pockets other than the pen holders are useless. I really like the bag I’m just upset with the shoulder harness eyelets.

Not a strong bag
I love the design, the look, the layout but it cant hold any more weight than the smaller headset bag. I am a CFI student so I was excited to have a bag that could hold my headset, EFB, kneeboarding, and laptop but after less than a month the stitching broke and the bag fell off my shoulder and crashed down to the sidewalk with a few thousand dollars worth of electronics in it. Sporty’s replaced that bag and a few weeks later the fabrics is now ripping.

If you are looking for a bag this size I imagine you expect it to hold more than what you can fit in a headset bag. I do not recommend the bag and will be trying a different company.

Didn't even last a week!
I got this because I liked the layout and thought it would be a better way to organize my things than my previous bag.
I liked it from that standpoint.

I packed it according to what it is designed to hold (2 headsets, laptop, iPad, stationary.
I used it for 3 days (4 Flight legs)

It is already coming apart at the seems!

It has been subjected to almost no wear and tear.
I have transported it on top of my rollaboard the entire time and only used the carry handle to place it and lift it off a few times, yet a hole has opened up alongside the carry handle.
The first time I attempted to carry it on the shoulder strap, a strap anchor loop ripped off after only taking a few steps.

All my other bags have always lasted years, but this one didn't even make it a week.
It is clear that this bag is poorly designed and poorly made from a durability standpoint.

Great organization bag for all your flight equipment
Lightweight, durable, and easy to organize and use in the cockpit. Plenty of pockets inside for storage of iPads, flashlights, pens, Stratus and Sirius XM weather receivers, headsets and more. All items in the bag are easy to find during night flight with bright orange coloring of the inside liners. The best part, is it fits right on to the handle of my flight suitcase, making it a breeze to transport from the airplane to the terminal and beyond.

Good but not quite
Great bag. Perfect size, great origination with pockets and compartments. I wanted to keep it. But ultimately returned it for two reasons:

1. zippers were low quality and I did not think they would hold up to the heavy use I would put it through.

2. No place to put a coffee / water bottle.

Fix the zippers and it would be nearly perfect for my usage.

Love this bag
This is a great bag. When I got it, it was obviously a return they sent back out. It still contained the previous owner's books about flying. Besides that the bag works great. It is nicely padded with plenty of room for all my travel related items. I can even fit a catered meal in it at the end of the day. I do have a hard time with opening the wrong side when I am looking for small items or a headset. Giving a 3 on value because I paid full price on a used bag.

I split my time between instructing and contract flying so I've been looking for something that looks professional and still carries everything I need for both worlds. There are three main sections. In the first I can keep a big headset for the pistons, a small one for the turbines, a small knee board, an ADS-B receiver, some supplies for an unexpected overnight, and more. In the middle I have my laptop, my notebook, a book for those layovers, and there's a soft pouch for an iPad. The other end has a shallow area with tons of pockets for chargers, cables, a passport, business cards, snacks, etc.
Just one complaint - the divider in the headset side doesn't stay put. The Velcro isn't up to the job.
I'm really happy with the bag - I can carry everything I need without the bulk of the giant flight bags.

What rolling bag is that with it in the pictures?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The rolling bag pictured is the Travel Pro 22" expandable pilot rollaboard, item 10858
Can you describe the "other" (non-headset) main pocket? Is there a specific holder for an ipad? Padding for a laptop? A big open area? Thanks!
A shopper on Jan 21, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it has a padded area for the laptop.
