Hey guys I was just hired by Compass and start training in January. I was just wondering what some of you current Compass pilots use for your flight bag. Which bags fit perfect in the 175 cockpit.

I have the lw stealth 22 inch from my awac days on the 200. Pretty sure I've seen guys and gals with the 26 inch. There's a decent amount of room up front

I use the Aerocoast Pro Crew Flight bag. In it I've got my laptop, headset, 2 iPad, a Nintendo Switch, mouse and mouse pad, Xbox one game pad, one issue of prophylactics, three lipsticks, three pair of nylon stockings.

Shoot a fella could have a pretty good weekend in Vegas with all that stuff.

Costco used to sell the small “Ciao” roller bags that are designed to fit under seats. Anyways.. I have that and it fits perfectly with just enough room to stick a water bottle in front of it.
Holds all my junk and works as a good day trip bag too.

I don’t know if Costco sells it anymore, but it was only $30 and have had it 3 or 4 years now.

I just use a black backpack and either clip it with a caribiner to my suitcase or carry it for day trips. Makes for a good bag to carry on your overnights if you go out and need a bag.

Cheap and fits fine in the plane.

Seconded. The Costco High Sierra $14.99 special works great, lasts a long time.

However, I fear that mention of carrying a backpack is going to derail this thread into a heated debate....

I didn't clarify but when I carry the backpack I carry it in my hand, not on my back. I mean I don't work for Delta so I don't put it on my back.

How many bags to you have? Luggage, flight bag (strictly flight gear), cooler? Or only two?

I have the luggageworks bag and a "flight bag" aka a laptop bag from staples. I'm actively considering getting a cooler as well but only for a good price, $60 for a black cooler seems outrageous.

How many bags to you have? Luggage, flight bag (strictly flight gear), cooler? Or only two?two is probably the average. Three is acceptable, but approaching too much. More than three? Son, you ain't a flight attendant.

-One Carry-On (LW Stealth Air 22”, no side pockets/737 style)
-One Flight Bag (LW Tote or Duffle)
-One Personal Item (Cooler).

Plus a coffee in the left hand and breakfast burrito in the right. :D

I carry two. Luggage Works Stealth 22". It's heavy but bullet proof. I also use a MYGOFLIGHT PLC Pro. It's kinda pricey at 200 bucks but has pockets for EVERYTHING including padded compartments for your iPad and a 13" laptop. They also have great customer service as I had the zipper fail on one of the main compartments. All I had to do is snap a couple pics to send them and two days later I had a brand new, updated bag with no questions asked.
