Rugged simplicity. If you want to keep the weight, cost, and fuss to a minimum check out the Flight Bags. Leather handles add reliability, a double layer of waxed canvas at the bottom resists abrasion, leather protects corners and adds class.

Four sizes in the Flight Bag line–the Mini is a little bigger than a bowling ball bag. The Carry-on makes a neat and trim weekend bag; it complies with airline requirements for onboard luggage. The Medium is slightly bigger but its compressible nature will allow you to get through most size checks. The Large Flight Bag really is large, it will stow a lot of gear.

All the Flight Bags include a web shoulder strap with solid brass hardware. The strap attachment points are leather reinforced and placed on opposing sides of the generous zip opening. The arrangement makes a balanced and shoulderable load.

    Perfect weekender

    Posted by Ben on Dec 6th 2019

    Can't think of a single thing to make this bag better. It's the perfect weekender/carry on/duffle. And built like a tank.

    Quality Bag!

    Posted by Jeff on Aug 9th 2019

    I bought a medium bag and it is a lot bigger than it appears. I was surprised with how much I can fit in it. The quality feels really good and sturdy.

    Carry-On Size

    Posted by Paul on Jul 5th 2019

    This bag doesn't disappoint. I would recommend it, and there are hardly any negatives. Make sure to get the buckskin padded strap for $35, it makes heavier loads easier to bear. If you're looking for packing cubes, I found that Eagle Creek's packing cubes work well, and with enough space for a pair of Birkenstock sandals, a pair of dress shoes, and a Pack-It Quick Trip (toiletry kit), I can fit 1 XS cube, 1 Small, 2 Mediums, and 1 Garment Folder. This works out to quite a bit of clothes. This American made bag is well worth it.

    Flight bag

    Posted by J. Lazinski on Jun 11th 2019

    I decided to order the flight bag-carry on size. All based on product reviews and description. There's nothing about this that was overstated. My comparisons have been with other wax canvas bags at some high end retailers. This has to be second to none. Incredibly heavy-duty canvas, zipper, & reinforcements. A traditional design (so much so, I had two people comment during my first and only travel trip), and something I view I can pass on to one of our kids. Unquestionably, this will last beyond a lifetime. Crazy to think a bag would do just that, but that's how I see it. Beautiful piece. I would recommend to anyone.

    Flight Bag Mini

    Posted by Dave H on May 28th 2019

    Excellent weekend bag!! Quite a bit of room I can easily pack 3-4 days. Couple this with my Voyageur pack and I’m good for 10 days. Well made as all Frost River products are

    Flight bag

    I bought this bag probably 7-8 years ago, I honestly don't remember. It's been through rain, snow, sleet, sun, everything. At the time I bought it I think it was a little pricier than it is now, but my god has this thing stood the test of time. I love this bag. It goes on every flight with me, any time I am in a hotel for travel or business, or even if I am staying at a friends. This bag is worth every cent I paid for it. Strongly recommend it

    Deserves even more stars. This bag is awesome. I received it almost three years ago (thank you Frost River for your support of the Blizzard Tour). Since then, it has been my everyday travel bag for work. It has been checked, not a carryon, on over 400 flights since then and has held up beautifully. A little dirty but that adds to the character. I used to replace bags every six months. I bought a ‘spare’ two years ago that I still haven’t used. Great product.
