Every bag I’ve ever come across for pilot ‘stuff’, has been some variation of plastic material. Generally functional, but not the sort of thing you’d give to someone as a gift. So the Asali Nav bag was a surprisingly pleasing item to check out in the FLYER office when it arrived.
All leather, its main compartment is perfectly sized to take a headset, small tablet and kneeboard. There’s also a smaller zipped pouch on the front (perfect for my SkyEcho2) and a slot-in pouch on the rear. My only gripe? If the main compartment was zipped to open slightly wider, it would be perfect.
Asali will personalise the removable patch at the front with your name and an image. A bag purchase benefits the RAF Benevolent Fund and RAF Association, which are the chosen charities for Asali.
There are plenty of low-cost ways to store those pilot essentials, but this one is nicely sized and just plain quality.
