SLR Camera bag in hiding!

Sure! Carry-on for a short trip to Caribbean? Why not?

The smallest in our Expedition series of bags, the Sun Chaser is the latest in incognito camera bags. The main compartment is roomy for all your photo gadgets like SLR zoom lenses, camera bodies, and short tripods. The closed cell Volara foam padded bottom helps to protect your precious fragile photo gear from impact. Secure the double zippered lid with the twin turn locks. The two raised side pockets are handy for when you need fast access. Both pockets zip halfway down the sides for easy access to buried equipment like data storage, adapters, manuals, etc.

MORE THAN JUST A CAMERA BAG.
The Sun Chaser (like all of our Red Oxx bags) is multipurpose – use it for car travel, last-minute getaways, or quick vacations where you only need to pack your bathing suit, a few changes of underwear, a few different outfits, and your shoes. It also makes for a handy sports gear bag.

A GOOD BAG IS A SUM OF ITS PARTS.
Our Monkey Fist Zip Knots and heavy-duty #10 YKK zippers make opening the compartments a yankin' cinch, yet the self-locking zipper design prevents accidental openings. The full-length pass-through zippered pocket docking sleeve on the other side allows for stacking on wheeled suitcase handles... or leave the bottom zipper closed and use it as a flat pocket.

HOW TO CARRY THE BAG.
The nonslip Claw Shoulder Strap allows for easy carrying, while the grab loops on both ends make retrieving this bag from the overhead compartment or yanking it from under other soft-sided luggage a snap. Carry it using the Claw on your shoulder or with the handle.

BUILT LIKE A TANK.
Our customers like to define our gear as "built like a tank". While obviously you're not going to be toting around bags that weigh 50 tons and have three inches of armor plate, still the comparison is valid. For a carry-on bag, Sun Chasers are built tough. Starting with the most durable soft textile material available, 1000 weight Cordura nylon, we use super strong UV resistant thread that is double stitched into every seam.

Places where two separate pieces of fabric are stitched together are then bound, that is, we take a long piece of one inch wide nylon webbing and fold it over the edges of the two pieces and stitch them together, this creates a strong seam, or binding, that prevents the pieces from unraveling on the inside of the bag, or gives it a clean finished look if on the outside of the bag.

In addition, each exposed fabric edge, such as on a pocket flap, is also bound using a thicker binding material. Inside edges typically receive a thinner nylon webbing, whereas outside corner edges that are exposed to wear will have a thicker nylon binding. All of our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in less expensive bags that brag of "binding" their edges.

Each stress point, such as where the handles attach to the bag, is double box stitched - which is where we get the "double xx" in our name, Red Oxx; a stitching practice we adapted from our time as parachute riggers. The reason Red Oxx uses the largest zipper we can afford, the #10 YKK VISLON® zipper, is that they are easily repairable, even in the field; they will hold their place, that is, they "lock"; they are difficult to penetrate, thereby increasing the security of your belongings; they function smoothly in inclement weather and they can be yanked from a variety of angles without losing teeth or becoming separated.

Red Oxx has occasionally been accused of "overdoing" our hardware. But once you've had a cheap piece of plastic hardware break in the middle of a busy intersection, airport or other inconvenient locale dumping your precious belongings all over the ground, having a heavy-duty nickel-plated or stainless steel D ring or attachment swivel that weighs just a little more, or might make a little noise, is a travel companion's confidence builder and peace of mind maker. After all, you want to enjoy your journey as best you can. Why worry about having your bag break down?

Heavy-duty 1050 weight Ballistic Nylon, our toughest, on the bottom skid plate signals many years of rough use sliding up and down cargo belts. Sun Chaser is a multi-compartment, multitask, carry-on duffel bag with a minimalist's design and organizational flexibility.

Frequently Asked Questions

What's the difference between the Sun Chaser and PR4?

Why are there two zippers on the back of the bag?

Is there a way to securely lock my bag?
Sure, you can use any TSA approved bag lock or try our Cable Lock for a simple, semi-secure solution.

Keep in mind, any determined thief can still cut open a soft sided bag with a sharp knife.
