Soaring USA bag for Explorer 4.0

My new bag for the Explorer 4.0 arrived from Soaring USA today and it is nice ! Looks like a large Jim Bag with some improvements. The outside of the bag has some really nice embroidery work. 'F3' in white and the 'Soaring USA' logo in red, white and blue. Althought the outside of the bag looks nice, the innards of the bag is what counts. There are two sections of the bag with full length zippers. I suspect one side for a fuselage or two and the other side for wing panels. A really nice touch to this bag is inside each section has two padded dividers providing extra protection for the fuse and wings. There is also a cavernous sleeve inside the bag to store an Explorer 4.0 stab. I am extremely happy that Soaring USA designed a great bag for the new large sailplanes ! Now all I need are some wing and fuse covers and I would be all set !

F3 Bags

Hi,

The bags are 2 types;
The first and my favorite is a 70" inside X 16" tall. Hold a 4000 X or any "smaller" model easy. This bag has 1 Zipper, and 4 inner pockets, fuse, CP, right tip, left tip. There are 2 pockets inside. Either can hold a Large stab like the 4000's. These bags also have 2 outer pockets for Joiners, or ballast, ect.
Very nice embroidery, a nice detachable shoulder strap. The bags are available in RED, or Blue with gray trim. These are 159.95..

The 2nd is slightly smaller dimension, but has 2 zippers, will hold 90% of F3J models up to 3.9. Each zippered pocket has 3 padded sections, and a pocket for stab on each side, as well as the 2 outer pockets. These are available in RED only @189.95.

The product was shot, and now our webmaster will get the webpages up in the next day or so.

We are very proud of these bags, all I can say is "its about time!!"

Best,
Bob

S,
I do not think they will fit in sportubes with 4000's in there.
Most likely with a 3.5 size model, yes.

Best,
Bob
