The Cross Country Backpack is the perfect size for everyday training or for a day in the office. Designed for the pilot on the go, this backpack has space for all the essentials without an overwhelming footprint. It’s ideal for pilots who prefer backpacks but don’t carry as much gear.
The larger main compartment closes with two beefy, #10 zippers. The rear wall has an iPad sleeve that will fit even the largest iPads. Two mesh pockets help keep chargers and cables organized. The front of this compartment was specifically designed with a soft, velvet material. This is perfect for attaching Gear Mods, independent pockets that attach with hook and loop fasteners and make it easy to further customize your Flight Gear bag. Need an extra pocket for a backup battery? There’s a Gear Mod for that.
The front of the Cross Country Backpack has three pockets. The top one is lined with a soft material and was designed for protecting sunglasses or ADS-B receivers. The middle pocket is padded and will fit smaller aviation headsets, while the bottom pocket is perfect for keeping extra batteries, pen/pencils, or cleaning cloths close at hand.
The sides of this backpack each have a mesh pocket. The padded, no-slip shoulder straps feature thumb lumps for quick adjustment. A padded back with a ventilation channel is comfortable and cool. Heavy duty handle makes this a perfect grab and go backpack.
Sporty’s Flight Gear bags have set the standard in aviation for nearly three decades. With pilot-friendly designs and high-quality craftsmanship, tens of thousands of pilots have trusted Flight Gear to protect and organize their gear, from first lesson to airline cockpit.
But we’re never satisfied, so we’re always looking to improve our products. After all, we have the best test pilots in the world: you, our customer. Thousands of pilot reports, good and bad, have been painstakingly reviewed to find the features most wanted in a flight bag.
The result is our latest generation of Flight Gear bags, brand new for 2021. Each of these bags represents the ultimate combination of rugged construction, thoughtful design, and affordable prices. You can pay more, but you won’t find a better flight bag.
What good is a bag if it doesn’t last? There are few things more annoying than a broken zipper or a ripped seam, which is why 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. These new bags needed to be lightweight, but 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 line of bags we’ve ever produced, because useful load is for passengers and fuel, not flight bags.
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 latest generation of Flight Gear bags feature custom pockets for storing and protecting headsets and iPads, not Jepp binders. We also added lots of organization for cables and other small gear, so important tools don’t get lost.
High Visibility Interior
A spacious bag won’t help you stay organized if you can’t find your gear. Flight Gear bags feature high visibility interiors, so your pilot supplies won’t be hiding in a dark corner when you really need them.
Every pilot has their own list of must-have items for flying, so flight bags must be customizable. We’ve accomplished this goal with a line of optional accessory pockets, called Gear Mods, that can be moved from one bag to another. After all, searching for a charging cable and backup battery pack can be a real pain in a tight cockpit.
