Water's a good servant, but a cruel master.
Don't let water ruin your gear.
This large Mesh Aviator Sports Equipment Duffel Bag is for those of you who love the water! Whether you're rafting on the river or out on the lake, you can be sure to have all the life vests you'll need when you've stored them safely in this bag.
The Aviator line of storage and carry gear bags were developed for the budget minded. Featuring the same sturdy materials and hardware as our regular Red Oxx bags, the Aviators are simplicity by design. They don't have a shoulder strap, mostly because the "break-over" zip open design does not condone itself with using a strap. Nor do they have any pockets or padding. Just a good old basic bag to serve basic simple needs without the extravagance or expense.
Over two feet long and 14 inches tall, the 3/4 wrap-around break over #10 YKK heavy duty zipper configuration opens up the bag nearly flat. Enveloping 1.5" wide webbing handle wraps all the way around the bottom of the bag. It's also double box stitched to the bag. No tearing here, ever. 3/4 Leno Mesh panel over top and ends. Available in Black only. Just be sure the bag doesn't stay in the garage when you head out!
No tearing mesh here, or anywhere, ever. Available in Black only.

I was looking for a gear bag for my bunker gear. This more than fits the bill. Heavy duty, strong, expertly made. It is a fine mesh, but I have no worries of it pulling apart or breaking. I fit my boots/pants, jacket, nomex hood, helmet, SCBA mask, rain gear, personal box light and a few small odds and ends in without a problem. I have no concerns about it being stuffed in my work locker until I have to float to another station. It can be loaded in my car or if I use it as check baggage when flying to Indy for HOT classes at FDIC. The gear is allowed to dry out. I expect this bag will last me until I retire in 12 more years. Great product! I would recommend this over any commercially advertised bunker gear bag on the market. Done right and made in the USA!

Needless to say your avaitor mesh bags are now my scuba equipment bags and they work great drying out my equipment even before we make it home from diving. I have purchased two large aviator bags, a Little Rob, a Metro Briefcase and I am waiting to receive a Grip and a wallet. I have found all of your products to be durable, well made and they look pretty darn good too.
Living near the HQs of one of your competitors, I surprised myself choosing your products over theirs. Although, they make a good product I have found yours to be superior and have a not so much "in your face"design. I look forward to receiving my latest order and I highly recommend your products whether you are going to Chicago or the Far East, you will not be disappointed.

Couldn't be happier. Great product, competitive price. I am using different than designed. I fish the coast. I throw all my gear like waders, boots, etc in to carry on the boat. All in one place. At the end of the day I can rinse the salt off and leave in the bag.

I bought this bag to use for hauling non-fragile gear and stuff for exhibits. Works great! The bags fold flat for storage (they stack under the exhibit tables) and are built to last several lifetimes. I mark luggage tags to indicate which items and in which bag.

Ideal ventilated storage for the emergency gear for our boat - life jackets, waterproofs, flares, radar reflector, VHF radio, GPS receiver and hand bearing compass all fit in with room to spare.

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 tab.
Why isn't there a shoulder strap?
The bag would not work with a shoulder strap as the break over zipper configuration is designed to open the bag fully. Check out this review written by a fan for a simple solution
to this question in the section titled: Simple Modifications to an Aviator Bag Improves Use.
Can you tell me what a "break over zipper configuration" is?
The zipper goes over the top and down the sides of the bag.
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.
My zipper broke. The teeth have separated. Do I send it in for warranty repair?
No need for warranty repair, fix it yourself. Check out this video where CEO Jim Markel shows how easy it is to do it yourself.
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. Watch this video where CEO Jim Markel demonstrates how you can use the cable that comes with the product Dog Tag
price tag to secure your bag
. Keep in mind, any determined thief can still cut open a soft sided bag with a sharp knife.
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.
