Our Story

We like to show off. No, we’re not into flashy bling, luxury vehicles, or wearing muscle shirts to show our impeccably sculpted guns. We’re into doing business the old-fashioned way by showing off the true meaning of customer service and providing quality gear at a fair value.

For more than 25 years, Flying Circle has been a trusted supplier to the Army & Air Force Exchange Stores. Our company was founded on the principle that our military service members have much bigger things to worry about than the reliability of their gear, so we provide them with the most dependable products at a reasonable cost. To that end, we strive to serve those who sacrifice so much in service to our country by providing them with top-notch customer service. Just read our testimonials. These people are so impressed by our skills, they endorsed us without even being compensated!

Good news travels fast, and our customer base has grown to include the Navy Exchanges, Coast Guard Exchanges, GSA purchasers, countless dealers worldwide, and avid outdoors enthusiasts who appreciate that our battle gear is tough enough to take on the great outdoors.

And while you’ve probably heard the cliché that everything is bigger and better in Texas, that’s partly true. We pride ourselves on being a small, family-owned company that can personally cater to our customers’ needs. That also means we sometimes have disagreements about who’s cooking dinner and taking the kids to piano lessons, but we hash it out over Rock-Paper-Scissors and pull together every day as a team. Smaller means better here, and we're pretty lucky to have built such a family within our company. Some of our employees aren’t even related to us, but they’ve worked alongside us since the very beginning!

Oh, and you may be wondering where the heck we came up with the name Flying Circle? Well, it’s the family ranch brand, and on the ranch is where all the magic began almost 30 years ago. When they weren't busy tending to the cattle back then, owners Jim and Joy Chittim made cattle halters and livestock show coats in the barn, so it was only logical that their next venture was to make military bags, right? Their entrepreneurial nature and innovative ideas are the driving force behind Flying Circle. We’ve since moved out of the barn and into an actual factory here on the ranch with their son, Jimmy, now calling the shots, but that doesn't mean we still don't have to take turns tending to the chickens.

Flying Circle Lifetime Guarantee

On Duty. Off Duty. We've Got You Covered.® -- even when it comes to our warranty! We care about the quality of our products and we care about your needs. As a family-owned business with more than two decades of experience designing and supplying quality luggage, we understand that sometimes things go wrong. Our products are 100% guaranteed against any defects in workmanship and/or materials. If your bag is damaged through normal, everyday use, send it back to us and we will more than likely send you a new one. If you really like your old bag and would like to try and save it, we’ll do everything we can to get it back into shape, even if we have to break out the duct tape and bailing wire. Although our products are designed with security and protection in mind, our guarantee does not cover replacing or repairing personal items that have been damaged or lost while used in conjunction with our bags or cases. If you accidentally run over your gym bag, we won’t be able to replace your hair dryer. We will, however, ask you if we can post the story on Facebook, so be sure to take pictures. Lastly, warranty claims are reviewed on a case by case basis. If you are nice to us and tell us a good story about how you broke a shoulder strap while you were wrestling your mother-in-law, we will do everything within reason to get you fixed up like new.
