Having been issued in the hundreds of thousands during a very long service life the Flyers Kit Bag will be immediately recognized by anyone who has served as aircrew in the military. Designed to give aircrew a large and strong bag to carry essential gear onto their airplane these bags became the US military equivalent to today's carry-on luggage.

Great bag and mine was in great shape. If someone had told me it was new/NOS/unused, that would have been believable. little larger than I imagined, but still very happy. Using it currently to pack/organize offroad 4x4 trips with friends. I like this bag so much I am ordering a 2nd after placing this review.
I just got this and I must say it is in nice shape - it is used but not overly. It is stamped 5/88 so it's been around for a while but has lots of life left in it. It will be my new luggage bag for weekend or even week long trips and can carry everything a guy needs. I might wax it or something to give it a water resistance but other than that it will work out fine. It looks like it will hold a lot and has a nice flap over the zipper, so if it were waxed it'd be great in the rain. It's a keeper!
