• DESCRIPTION •
Designed primarily for aviators who need a Pilot Flight Bag to pack multiple overnight items, such as clothes, shoes, coolers, etc., the B18 HANGAR fits the bill when maximum space is required. Also excellent for those in the Law Enforcement and Emergency Medical field.
The B18 is 13.5" x 10.5" x 22" with interior storage capacity of 18 inches. (And remember, it is a soft bag so it can expand slightly in every direction.)
The B18 HANGAR is comprised of the POCKET CAP FRONT, CENTER SECTION 5, CENTER SECTION 11, CENTER SECTION 2, FLAT CAP REAR, SIDE POCKET ALPHA (Large Radio/Water Bottle Pocket), SIDE POCKET BRAVO (Small Radio Pocket), SIDE POCKET CHARLIE (Pen Pocket), and SIDE POCKET DELTA (Double Pocket).
The POCKET CAP FRONT offers a variety of pockets organized into three Main Pockets and six auxiliary pockets. The top Main Pocket area is designed to hold your mobile device, wallet and keys. The middle and lower pockets can store your electronic E6B, camera, business cards, iPods, chargers, batteries, etc. The auxiliary pockets are perfect for storing flashlights, fuel testers, and multi-purpose tool.
The CENTER SECTION 5 offers five inches of storage space and comes with a divider shelf attaching to the side walls of the main compartment with Velcro. This shelf can be positioned right where you need it or removed for full access storing one or two headsets or GPS. Access is through a unique top zipper design that also opens the entire length allowing you to reach all the items above and below the divider shelf. On top of the bag is a pocket for sunglasses. There are two FLEX Mount Pocket stations on both sides of the CENTER SECTION 5.
The CENTER SECTION 11 offers a full 11 inches of interior storage and swallows up multiple day's worth of clothes. In addition to clothes, the CS11 will carry a small cooler or helmet. The CS11 comes with two vertical divider shelves. If needed, you can organize a 13" laptop, documents, and clipboards. The top of the CS11 carries a 8 inches square pocket along with double side pocket mounting stations. The CS11 can be installed over the upright handles of our folding cart using the zipper access found on one side.
The CENTER SECTION 2 offers two inches of storage and easily carries 13" laptops, some 14" laptops, tablets as well as documents, folders, clipboards, etc.
The FLAT CAP REAR offers two flat pockets on the outside. The primary pocket is accessed from the top and has a cover flap that is secured with Velcro. There is a second flat half-height slip pocket that acts as a great place to store a couple of basic documents that you want to have easy access to such as today's checklists or your boarding pass. This half-height pocket offers a zipper across the bottom opening 9 inches to allow it to slip over the upright handle of your folding cart or rolling suitcase.
Keep in mind that the modules included in the B18 can be assembled in any order. You can also remove modules and reassemble the remaining modules into a smaller bag. Or can buy other FLEX System modules (like the CS3 or CS4 and add them to your bag on certain days if you need.) Any FLEX System module can be zipped onto any other FLEX System module.
SIDE POCKET ALPHA is often called the "Radio Pocket". It will hold any, repeat - ANY, handheld radio. And the top flap is such that the antenna can just stick right out the side. In addition, the SPA is great for holding a water bottle. The front face of the pocket has an expansion zipper, so the pocket can hold larger or smaller water bottles. It will hold up to a 20 oz bottle.
SIDE POCKET BRAVO has two half-height compartments. The upper compartment has a fold-over cover flap and it was originally designed for the short hand-held radios. The lower compartment is closed with a zipper and it is great for holding small items like spare batteries or ear plugs, etc.
SIDE POCKET CHARLIE is often called the "Pen Pocket". I has three pen slots on the outer surface plus a zippered pouch that has room for pens, marker, highlighter, spare reading glasses, etc. Of course, many people will put completely different things in there besides pens. It's a great pocket many different purposes.
SIDE POCKET DELTA is a "double-wide" pocket which mounts on two adjacent FLEX-mount side pocket stations. The two mounting stations can be found either on a CS11, or they can even be found on two adjacent modules and the Side Pocket Delta can bridge across the gap between the two modules.
The B18 HANGAR (as well as the other four standard pre-configured bags) comes with a MAIN HANDLE (the B0 needs no Main Handle), a SHOULDER STRAP, and also a SLIM HANDLE KIT. The SLIM HANDLE KIT consists of a SLIM HANDLE, two ADAPTER LOOPS, and four D3 CLIPS. The MAIN HANDLE or the SHOULDER STRAP can be attached to the CS4 by use of the quick release clips. If you convert the B18 to a B0 by removing all three Center Sections, then the D3 CLIPS and the ADAPTER LOOPS can be installed so that you can use BOTH the SLIM HANDLE and the SHOULDER STRAP at the same time with the B0. Note: If you try to carry the entire B18 HANGAR with the SLIM HANDLE KIT, the D3 CLIPS will fail and you may drop the bag and risk damaging the entire contents.
