We just found the ultimate gear carry bag. Issued to German pilots for carrying their helmet and flight suit, this bag is perfect to carry large heavy loads.
Each bag is constructed of heavy duty nylon fabric, and reinforced with 2" wide nylon webbing. The large, self healing nylon zipper with and oversized stainless steel pull can be locked on an integral D ring when zipped closed. Underneath the zipper is a wide 4.5" storm flap that includes a stitched in Velcro closure I.D. window.
Dimensions measure a generous 24" long by 10.5" wide by 14" tall with an overall carrying capacity of approximately 3,360 cubic inches. A single exterior pocket measuring 8.5" wide and 6.5" deep is great for passports or other small, thin items that require fast retrieval.
The base of the bag is reinforced with a lightweight but rigid composite deck that is permanently mounted into the bottom of the bag by 8 stainless steel foot studs. Each bag includes a 1" wide nylon shoulder strap that adjusts from 38" to 67" long and includes a flexible rubber shoulder pad.
These bags were issued and used and show some signs of wear. Some bags may have the name of a pilot written in marker on the exterior of the bag for identification.
