Ironically, I don't think there has ever been an F-18 pilot who has used such a bag in history.......at least when flying the Hornet. I got one of these too when I was in meridian, and it has been in the closet since I left flight school.
As for gloves, those are the other things that got thrown in the closet when I got my wings. Have not dabbled with fingerless. Okay I admit that I did keep the gloves in the helmet bag to wear to and from the jet on the flight deck on cruise (lest some boat donkey get angry), but I have not worn them in the cockpit in years. I have yet to hear the argument that will compel me to deal with the annoyance.
