If you are limited on space this is the bag for you. I like this bag because it’s narrow enough to fit next to my lunch cooler (Aerocoast Pro II) in the 737 but also tall enough to accommodate all of my flight gear. I have not found anything that I would change about the bison stampede.
I use the bag like the pilots who wrote their reviews before me. The bison stampede bag has a pocket for everything. It fits great sitting on top of the roller-board or hanging from the J-Hook.
Front bottom pocket = Batteries, two charging cords, extra space.
Front upper = Bose headsets without bose bag.
2nd Front hidden = Sunglasses and sunshade.
Bottom side = Spare change/singles.
Side middle = built for glasses or cell phone but I put hand sanitizer in there.
Front vertical hidden = Wallet and keys.
Back vertical hidden = Flashlight.
Small back pocket = Perfect for passport and company ID.
Middle Back = I-Pad
Top back = Folder with paperwork or a book.
The main compartment has small pen holders, flashlight pocket and a deep space to put whatever else you need to take with you. I’ve stored a small soft cooler in there for day trips or a seat cushion and a bottle for water on longer trips. Also enough space for a 13-15 inch laptop if you don’t want to store it in the back pocket.
Stop searching for the perfect bag, you finally found it. Purchase and enjoy!
I previously had a Brightline bag. I like this bag better.
1. Most pockets more usable....some of the Brightline pockets were tiny.
2. This is more stable riding on the back of my suitcase.
3. It is easier to put next to the seat in the 717....big square Brightline didn't slide in nearly as smoothly.
iPad (padded sleeve pocket)
Bose headset (top pocket on face of bag)
wallet and sunglass case (bottom pocket on face of bag)
In center pocket:
a stainless steel water bottle (found out drinking out of plastic bottles so much is bad)
a sleeve with certificates on one side and cables on the other. (Grid-It with back pocket)
folder of paperwork
large external battery for iPad
In other pockets:
2 sticks of sunblock (a side pocket)
2 pair of glasses (each in their own pocket)
Sunshades for windows (back pocket)
earphones for music (small side pocket)
I'm very happy with this purchase...I think this may be the only detailed review I have ever written on anything.
I had a great experience with my first Mission Bag purchase a few years ago, and decided to go with them again for my new airline job. I ordered this and the Alpine Traverse to compare, and ended up keeping the Stampede. It is perfectly sized for the 737 cockpit and fits everything you might need. It holds my QRH, iPad, laptop (14 in), headset, and all of the other odds and ends I use for a trip. It’s narrow enough to easily slide in and out behind the seat, and fits perfectly next to it with everything easily accessible. My last bag has taken some abuse from military flying and still looks brand new; I expect nothing different from this one. Overall the quality is outstanding and the features are very well thought out. This is the best bag out there!
Over the past several years I used a backpack as my flight bag. I was conteplating the mission bag for a couple of years. I finally decided to go with it and my only regret is why I didnt buy it sooner. Im able fit more in that bag than my back pack. I use a Bose headset, ipad mini, surface tablet, Large Anker battery, shaker bottle and many other items. Im on the 737 and it fits perfectly on the side of my seat on top of the jepps bag.
This bag is super versatile and functional. Tons of different storage options. It fits conveniently in the the old "brain bag" space between the seat and the sidewall. Missions Bags also has fantastic customer service!
Second Bison bag. Little thinner and fits next to the seat much better in the 737-300s. But makes inside main section a little smaller than I had hoped for. The storage and specialty pockets are extremely nice and well thought out. Also, nothing grabs or catches when rolling down the aisle when commuting or dead heading. Overall very happy with the choice.
