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.

DurabilityReinforced Handle
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.

CustomizableGear 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.

The Captain's Flight Gear Bag is my go-to-bag when heading out for a day or two. When I fly to Sun 'N Fun or Oshkosh the Captain's bag holds everything I need for flying plus two changes of clothes. It's a great overnight bag.

New Flight Bag
Too early to know for sure on durability but the bag looks very well made. It had pockets for mine and a passenger headset. It was padded inside with organized pockets. Including places with easy access to maps, plotters, and flight computer. I think this will be a very usable flight bag.

Perfect for the CFI or weekend warrior
The Flight Gear Captain’s bag is perfect for me. I’m a full time CFI and it has more than enough space for all of my gear plus snacks, etc. You could absolutely have a change of clothes in the main compartment along with your gear. It’s well padded so you don’t have to worry about banging up your gazillion dollar headset either!

A great bag for the pilot that wants to carry everything
I have been struggling for years trying to find the right combination of space/function for all the stuff I tend to carry with me when I fly. I've used simple duffel bags and fancy modular bags, and nothing has been as overall useful as this one. My only real complaint is there's no dedicated spot for my handheld radio, otherwise I'd give it a 5...

Great bag to have
I bought this bag about 4 years now and it is a great bag. It will keep everything you need to go flying if you rent or own your own airplane. I had the bag for a year while I was renting and then used it to get my own airplane home. It will carry anything you want. Enough room for charts and if you use electronic flight bag like IPAD! I have one head set on each side. It fits nicely in the baggage compartment. I really like it a lot because it keeps all my flying stuff together.

Great bag! 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.

Captian"s Bag
I really like the bag. my old Sportys flightgear bag broke after 15 yrs. 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.

Great bag with a few minor issues
I 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.

Pros
- 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.

Poor construction
The 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.
