We started by doing a real world test: load them up, and let-s go flying. Our test pilots hauled around gear for months, flying everything from piston singles to jets. Even riding in the luggage compartment on commercial flights, our flight gear bags still looked like new.
One of our test pilots said we need to test how much weight it will carry. Bring on the bricks. Loaded with more bricks than it could fit, we couldn-t break the shoulder strap. The scale reported 120 lbs. of bricks. Just to be sure, we left it overnight.
Results: The bag passed with flying colors.
While you won-t be SCUBA diving with this bag, you may get caught in some rain when going from the plane to the FBO. Our bags are constructed with heavy duty, poly-backed material to help keep your valuable gear dry during this mad dash. To test that feature, we took one lucky test pilot, put him in a rain suit, and made him run through a torrential downpour.
Results: the contents stayed dry, but the test pilot caught a cold.
Most pilots don-t carry that much paper, but let-s pretend for a minute you did. Let-s fill the bag up with charts and drop it off the roof of Sporty-s warehouse. OK, maybe not real world, but still fun to watch.
Results: Not a scratch. Still in excellent shape.
Now we are starting to get off the beaten path. Not many people will need to put bricks in their bag full of charts and throw it out of a helicopter, but why not test it just in case? Sporty-s happens to be a Robinson Helicopter service center, so we know helicopters. From a 50 ft. hover, the bag impacted the gravel driveway with enough force to crack the bricks inside, but the bag survived.
