"Extra Small" in name only.
Capacity can be a deceptive beast.
Based on the Aviator Bag from our days in military service, this rectangular bag is perfect for stowing sleeping bags, emergency roadside assistance supplies in the trunk of your car or even as a short trip laundry bag. This is the smallest in the Aviator Bag series. Which, frankly isn't saying much because it can carry A LOT.
Just 15 inches long, this rectangular kit bag stands at 8 inches wide and nearly a foot tall. The 3/4 wraparound #10 YKK heavy-duty zipper opens up the bag nearly flat. Enveloping 1.5 inch wide webbing handle wraps all the way around the bottom of the bag. It's also double box stitched at all stress points. Lots of folks like to pack them along inside their luggage because it folds flat. Also makes an ideal CPAP machine bag.
Sometimes simplicity rules. Available in Black only.

Great bag; It is well put together, every stitch, button, and zipper, feels solid. I have put some really heavy gear in the bag and it held up.
I have and continue to recommend this bag, it works really well with cocoon grid it pads to keep all your small gear organized.

Bigger than one might gather from the name, which is good -- great value. Well made. Tough. Handsome. Made a good gift. Well received.
By Doug, TX, January 5, 2012
I got this to hold stuff in my car's trunk - jumper cables, flashlight, gloves, etc - its the perfect size for that service.
The bag is well built, sturdy and looks like it will last quite a while, probably longer than my car. 3/4 zip most of the way down the bag allows for good access.

This bag is the perfect size for what I need and the construction is top notch. This is my second Red Oxx bag and is unlikely to be the last.
By Scott, Tennessee, September 29, 2011
I use my air boss for business travel. I bought the extra small and small aviators for weekends and leisure when I don't need all the space. However each of these little bags hold enough for days easily. Tough as nails. Excellent for throw and go. My search is over after 25 yrs for the best duffle bag. Seriously!
By Erik, DCA, September 26, 2011
The is another fine product I have bought from Red Oxx..finally a bag that looks great, REALLY FITS UNDER the cabin seat and allows me to carry a lot of stuff-my CPAP machine, hose, power unit, ipad, headsets and other stuff!!! You guys rock!
rub a dub dub, one bag and a tub!
By Anonymous, brooklyn, ny, September 15, 2011
This bag is beautiful and well-built. Very happy with it. The only issue, as other people have noted in their reviews, is the lack of a shoulder strap. Its true that I'm not quite sure how/where it would fit (and it would take away from the minimal aesthetic of the bag) but because the bag can actually fit a ton of stuff, it becomes heavy to carry in one hand for a long time. Luckily it's also small enough that you can use the hand loops as a tight shoulder strap, however its quite funny.
By Istvan, San Jose, California, July 7, 2011
The extra small aviator bag is small, simple and rugged.
This is the fifth Red Oxx product I bought - all are the same quality - they are built to last. I love that I don't have to worry about my bags anymore.
By Elisa, Australia, June 23, 2011
This looked so cute that I threw it into an order for a garment bag for my son. It's turned out to be the bag he uses the most. It's a great size for an overnight bag and is also ideal for carrying a ton of textbooks. The quality is excellent and it looks even better in person. A really handy bag, and one which I'm coveting for myself.
By Jessica, Italy, June 13, 2011
This is the magical Mary Poppins bag, or perhaps Hermione Granger put an extendable charm on it -- truly seems bigger on the inside than the outside. I took just a messenger bag and the XS Aviator for 5 days in Greece, including a ton of toiletries, 4 pairs of shoes, and my own beach towel. Using the onebag.com bundle wrapping, everything fit fine. I do wish there was a shoulder strap (even though the Claw strap on my Air Boss is too long for me to use comfortably), but I just put the bag over my forearm when I got tired of holding it in my hand on the 1/2 mile hike between ferry ports. Love how lightweight this is!
The TARDIS of Duffel Bags
By Jamie, Churchville, MD, May 5, 2011
It is bigger on the inside. My first overnight trip with this bag was to a family event. For kicks I decided to pack really poorly and see how much I could cram into the bag. The fact is that I didn't do any cramming.
I fit 1 pair of Top Siders, 1 pair of underwear, 1 pair of athletic socks, 1 pair dress socks, 1 undershirt, 1 pair of dress khakis, 1 short sleeve polo, 1 long sleeve top, 1 dress shirt, 1 pair of new balance running shoes, 1 lightweight windbreaker for running, toothpaste, toothbrush, razor in ziplock.
For context I wear a size 12 wide shoe. I did a bad job folding knowing that my mother has an ironing board. I have no idea how dressy I will need to be so I packed basically 4 days of clothes just in case.
Here is the best part, the big zipped up without any problems. There was room to spare. It is so stout and tough that it will fit anywhere and not be a pain to lug around. Without a laptop it is pretty light. Best of all is that there is room to spare if you want to take an extra pair of shoes or a little something, but not too much room where you take everything you own. You could pack light and buy a t-shirt when you get there.
For less than $50 this bag is a steal. I am kicking myself for buying an Air Boss. All I need is my briefcase and this bag and I will be set for 5 days of clothes for business travel. If I wanted to bring some in flight entertainment, I am sure I can do three days business travel and put my Lil Roy for gadgets on the plane.
There is so much value for your money. Worst case throw some tools in it and see how you like it. I would love to buy another one, but this is the only bag I will need before it wears out in 20 years.
Red Oxx please email me if you are going to stop making this bag, I will buy a few for safe keeping.
Thanks again for making such a great product.

great little bag for the gym or a change of clothes. made in the U.S.A.
Would be five stars with shoulder-strap option, pockets
By Tyler, Nashville, TN, March 3, 2011
I travel often for business (on road ~20 weeks/year for 1-4 nights at a time) and bought this bag because my roller bag was just too much for most of my trips. This is a great bag and, as dumb as this sounds, it's a lot bigger than it appears on screen: pay attention to the physical measurements. Capacity is huge: I travel pretty light, but I can readily pack clothes for a 3 or 4 day business trip, including workout gear and running shoes (it requires wearing or rolling your jacket/blazer, which won't fit folded). At the same time, when underpacked it easily smushes down, making it stowable under the forward seat or taking up spots in overhead compartments that are way too small for rollers. The hardware is simple and sturdy.
Two things keep this bag from getting five stars. First, it should really have shoulder strap connections. Because of its huge capacity, the bag can be really heavy when stuffed, which can make it exhausting to hold in hand at all times. I think this is such a serious omission that I may wind up adding loops myself - because otherwise, I love it. Second (and this is far more minor) a couple of patch pockets on the inside of the bag would be a nice addition for tucking a cosmetics zip-lock bag, cell/computer charger, ticket, etc.

I bought 2 of these without ever seeing them in person. I am very happy with the purchase. I see multiple uses for these bags. I've used the bags on multiple occasions for carrying textbooks, clothes, food, and computer equipment. On a recent trip overseas, I rolled up this bag and put it in my carry-on. I ended up buying some duty-free whiskey as a gift and was given some cheap plastic bags. I was able to stuff the purchases into the aviator and was able to securely transport my newly acquired items.
I build quality on these bags is ridiculous. Simple, but very sturdy. The webbing that is wrapped around the entire bag does not make me worry that the bag will fall apart if I'm carrying a heavy load. I wish I could say I would buy more extra small bags, but I'm afraid these bags will last forever. I highly recommend them if you are looking for a simple duffel bag that will last forever.
Perfect carry-on for those short trips
By Jonathan, Ontario Canada, February 17, 2011
Those short, one or two night, trips that involve flying, can pose some tricky choices for luggage. This bag is perfect when you are travelling light. It's surprisingly roomy for such a small bag. It fits easily in the overhead compartment of even the smallest planes. It's also great to toss into a bigger bag giving you options for the return trip when you've bought things and need some extra space. For $30 you can't beat it! Excellent construction too!
By L. Smith, Atlanta, GA, February 10, 2011
This bag is wonderful! I'm pleasantly surprised how roomy it is every time I use it. I wavered back and forth between the xs and the s for my go to travel bag. I'm really happy I went with the xs. I haven't been able to completely fill it yet.
Whenever I unpack it I'm reminded of Mary Poppins bag. It doesn't look or feel big but it holds a huge amount of stuff!
By Alan, North Carolina, February 10, 2011
This bag always looked too small to me to be of use according to the website---Wrong!! I finally saw one in person on a cruise to the Bahamas. A fellow cruise passenger had one to take his beach gear from the ship to Coco Cay, the private island the cruise line leases. As fellow Red Oxx fans, we immediately struck up a conversation and I knew I had to get that bag when I got back home!!! It might be "small" compared to the larger models, but the bag hold plenty, trust me!! Now I use it as my personal carry on bag when I fly.
By Gary, NW Indiana, October 27, 2010
I use this bag to cart around my large format (4x5) camera gear. My camera, film, meter and holders fit well in this.
It's a great alternative to a standard camera bag. If you do large format, get one.
By Jeremiah Reilly, Montpelier VT, October 15, 2010
The xs aviator bag is perfect for the lean, serene traveler. I debated between ordering the s or xs and am glad that I choose the xs. Simple, sturdy, unfussy, sharp looking. For any travel which does not involve carry luggage long distances-most of my travel-this bag is perfect. I bought it to test on a weekend flight to Michigan and I was only able to make my connections because I could get on and off planes quickly and pass through security quickly. The Red Oxx XS Aviator plus the concepts from http://www.onebag.com/ are the perfect match. I could easily pack clothing and essentials for 5 to 10 days in the bag. If I were traveling longer or carrying my luggage with transport, I would order one of the Red Oxx bags with shoulder straps.
Second Aviator bag and I need more
By joi edwards, California, October 3, 2010
I got a Small Aviator bag a while back and have used it for many different things, Storing exercise equipment, Emergency Gear bag, Art bag on a painting crawl. Looking through your website I noticed that there was a smaller Aviator, the Extra Small! I needed a new gym bag and ordered one to try it out. It is perfect. I organize my gear in smaller bags so the wide-mouth is great. I can get a full change of clothes, 2 towels, small toilet kit, small bag of exercise stuff and my shoe bag. Fits in the locker when full. The perfect bag. I'm trying to figure out why I need another bag.

Frequently Asked Questions
What's the size difference between the Aviators?
Aviators come in four sizes. Look under the specifications tab for the measurements.
Why are some Mesh?
We liked the idea of a breathable bag, especially for damp clothes and beach or swimming accessories.
Do you have a comparison chart?
There's a photograph of all the bags side by side located under the Photos and videos tab.
Are these carry-on legal?
The Extra Small and the Small Aviator are both carry-on legal.
Is there a shoulder strap?
The bag would not work with a shoulder strap as the zipper is designed to open the bag fully.
Are the Kit Bags waterproof?
All Red Oxx bags are water resistant, not waterproof. The stitching puts holes in the fabric.
Are they a lesser quality than the rest of your bags?
All Red Oxx Bags are made to the same high quality standards and are covered by our lifetime warranty.
Why is the price so much lower?
Our Aviator line represents refined simplicity. By having fewer features such as pockets, heavy-duty hardware and being made in one color with fewer pieces to be cut and stitched, and less time to make each bag, we can charge a much lower price.
Are there any interior pockets?
To keep the price down, we did not include interior pockets.
Can you ship USPS?
Yes, Red Oxx will ship USPS upon request. Simply state, "Please ship USPS" in the cart comments during checkout and we will adjust your billing accordingly.
