Flight Gear HPHigh Performance pilot bags designed by youSporty’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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
