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.

    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

    Posted by Sean on Feb 27th 2019

    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

    Flight Bag

    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.

    Excellent bag

    Posted by Taylor Christiansen on Nov 17th 2018

    I came across this bag in Japan, and bought it in a heartbeat (Frost River goods are rare here, particularly at a bargain). It’s an odd size, somewhere between the “mini” and the “carry-on”, measuring at the seams, 12” high, 20” wide and 10” deep. Measurements aside, the amount the bag can hold accommodates most demands! My Summit Expedition Pack carries me through weekend trips, but this bag is perfect for longer travels away from home. The Flight Bag is a manifestation of what the folks at Frost River do best—making softgoods where rugged functionality meets a kind of quiet beauty—top to bottom, this bag looks as great as it holds. My favorite features are the handmade rolled-leather handles, and the timelessness of the waxed canvas. When packed with clothes, the bag makes a decent pillow too.

    Very pleased with my large flight bag. Top notch quality and can hold anything and everything. Will definitely purchased another in a smaller size!

    Great & Durable Carryon

    Posted by Scott Jones on Nov 8th 2018

    When touring the store, I spotted the flight bag. I figured if it was good enough for James Bond (Daniel Craig), it would work for me! It wasn't long that I took my first trip to British Columbia and it turns out the carryon, along with the supplemental cord bags, was fantastic! I like having my Texas patch on it as well to rep my home state wherever I go!

    High Quality & Great Looks

    Posted by Mick on Nov 5th 2018

    After literally tearing through Athletic branded duffels (that were pricey), I looked hard for a longer lasting alternative. And there was the Flight Bag...perfect size, beautiful leather, waxed tin cloth - and American made!! I had to have one for weekends on Cape Cod. And the compliments keep coming...well done Frost River!!

    Flight Bag

    I purchased the medium flight bag for a weekend trip to Bermuda. It held everything I needed for a trip in the cooler season. It's a great bag, and I wouldn't hesitate to add additional Frost River bags for our traveling needs.

    I'll have this bag for life

    Posted by Chris Bly on Nov 5th 2018

    This is the most bombproof well made bag I've ever owned. The craftsmanship is top notch. I haven't flown with it but it's great for short weekend trips.
