You’ll be ready to grab and go when the mission calls – just like the RAF fighter pilot and writer for which this purpose-designed backpack is named, Neville Frederick Duke. This Second World War British test pilot and fighter ace chronicled his experiences in a multitude of writings. His bold career and lifestyle were the inspiration for Lightspeed to create the Duke, the leather backpack addition to our Adventure Flight Bag collection.
There’s plenty of space to pack your adventure essentials in this handmade black leather backpack featuring gusseted pockets on both sides – one with a security clasp for radio with transceiver, and one for a water bottle.
The elegant top stitching is a trademark of the Adventure Flight Bag collection, as is the PVC bottom to help protect the bottom of the pack on muddy, dusty, grassy ramps. There are no metal feet to ensure the wing of your aircraft is protected as you load in for your next flight.
The moisture wicking materials on the back will keep you cool. A designated zippered laptop pocket on the back has two sections for your computer, iPad or any other tech device you need. A convenient Velcro strap on the back can be used to hook to roller bag luggage or secure your backpack straps.
Interior amenities to the Duke include a plush lined pocket for eyeglasses and sunglasses, a purpose built Velcro loop hang tag for your headset, removable keychain holder, RFID protection and mesh and full zippered pockets for your credit cards, pens, wallet, and any other accessories you bring along.
The Lightspeed flight bags are created with the same aviation focus we bring to our headsets and incorporate insightful features designed for the modern pilot. Anyone who owns a Lightspeed headset will recognize the beauty, durability, and ingenuity of a product destined to make your flying adventures more enjoyable for years to come.

I bought the Duke flight bag last winter, and it has been my go-to bag for nearly everything since.
For flying, it will comfortably fit everything I need for any given flight. So much thought was put into the bag with things like a snap-on keychain for quick access to aircraft keys, a radio antenna loop, RFID protection, passport-sized ID slots, and so much more.
Not only does this bag work for flying, but it quickly adapts to anything else that you would use a backpack for. The bag is rugged but professional, and it’s so durable too!

Love the bag so far. I have been carrying around a large plastic tub of cross country gear and also a separate bag for my portable radios and portable locator beacon. Been able to combine these into one condensed bag and still have a ton load of room left. It’s amazing how much I can fit just due to the well-thought arrangement of pockets, pen/torch holders, headset holders, sunglasses pocket. Design is rugged with reinforced edges and pure leather outside.
One design feature that could be improved is I have a small bottle but my bottle still has on a couple of occasions fallen out. Might be worth bringing the exterior bottle mesh up further.
Overall love the bag.

In addition to the flying, I travel a ton for business and this is an outstanding flight bag… but even more than that, it’s now my go to daily bag. My large MacBook Pro fits in the padded area, and it’s the perfect size. AND, Im very hard on my stuff, this thing is rugged and durable!! I ;love it!!
