A book bag doesn’t belong in the cockpit
Now pilots who prefer a backpack as a flight bag don’t have to settle for a backpack designed for high schoolers or hikers. Sporty’s has created its Cross Country Backpack to accommodate all the flight gear pilots typically carry.
Specific pockets organize headsets, iPad, flashlight, fuel tester, handheld radio and more. The padded headset pocket has built-in battery holders, while an internal iPad sleeve keeps iPads protected. A padded laptop compartment fits most 17” computers, and your cellphone stays in a unique pocket on the shoulder strap. A rubberized bottom means that you can place the Cross Country Backpack on a damp surface with no fear of damaging the contents.
The transceiver pocket features a patented split flap at the top to allow the antenna to stick up. Inside, a custom sleeve will store the antenna when not on your radio. A removable custom ID holder is affixed to the bag. This also provides a perfect spot for Military or Police patches.
Constructed with heavy-duty nylon, this backpack boasts double-stitched seams and high quality zippers. Backed by an industry leading six-year guarantee, it can stand up to the abuse pilots often dish out.
Measuring 18”h x 14”w x 7”d, Sporty’s Cross Country Backpack is comfortable to carry and roomy enough for all appropriate gear. Sporty’s Cross Country Backpack [#9465A] is available for $64.95 and may be ordered at sportys.com or by calling 1-800-SPORTYS. The Backpack can be personalized with three embroidered initials.
