Red Oxx Sky Train Bag

The Red Oxx Sky Train is an extremely versatile bag.  You can carry at least a week’s worth of clothing, and you can carry it like a briefcase or messenger bag thanks to its two handles. The Sky Train has a lifetime guarantee and measures 20″L x 9″W x 13″H, with a 2,340-cubic-inch capacity.

Red Oxx teamed up with web author and travel expert Doug Dyment of fame to develop this carry on backpack travel bag. There are actually 3 ways you can carry the bag: 1. Carry like a suitcase (Euro handle),  2. Over your shoulder like a messenger bag, OR  3. Pull out the retractable backpack straps and travel in hands-free comfort.  Grab loops on the sides help make stowing the bag in the overhead bin a snap. Fits the luggage boarding size restriction box, under your seat, etc.

Two main interior compartments and 1 full length outside zippered flat pocket accommodate plenty of room . The main compartment tie downs cinch down to the closed cell Volara foam, securing your clothing. These tie-downs help keep your slacks and dress shirts wrinkle-free until you can hang them up in the hotel. The Sky Train can easily hold 3 pairs of slacks and 3 blouses with room leftover for a light jacket.  A secondary compartment has a foam stay and a small pocket for stashing personal items or toiletries (9″ x 12″).
