BEST GEAR OF THE YEAR
Outside Magazine recognized the Safari Beano's PR5 Safari bag as one of 2004's 15 best outdoor products.
James Glave, editor for Outside Buyer's Guide, said:
"Winning products must offer cutting-edge design and be really rugged. Our testers dragged it with a car down the sidewalk and threw it off the second-story balcony and tried to destroy it. We really place enormous emphasis on rigorous testing."
As does Red Oxx! The proof in the pudding as they say.
Read the review about this outstanding carry-on bag, voted best by Outside Magazine. Also endorsed as an ideal safari travel duffel by professional safari hunter and outdoor writer, Craig Boddington, from the sportsman TV series "Tracks Across Africa" and Safari Spokesman Ivan Carter on "Hornady's Africa with Ivan Carter".
WHERE DO MY BELONGINGS GO?
Set up with the same layout as its little brother the PR4, this award winning duffel features three rectangular storage compartments for maximum space efficiency. Dual end pockets have zippers that zip halfway down the sides for easy access to packed items.
The opening for the main compartment flips back out of the way for unrestricted access to the entire compartment. Twin turn locks keep the lid secure and anchored D-rings allow locks to be attached to the zippers for extra peace of mind while traveling as checked baggage.
The zippered front flat pocket keeps your passport or reading materials handy. The pass-through panel on the back side is designed for use with wheeled luggage. Unzip top and bottom zippers and slip it over the wheeled bags telescoping carry handle. Or leave the bottom zipper closed and it doubles as a second flat exterior pocket.
HOW TO CARRY THE BAG
Includes the famous Claw No-Slip Shoulder Strap. Attached using heavy-duty 360 degree "claw-like" swivels, this strap hardware will endure any abuse imaginable-- quickly detaching for storage inside.

I surprised my husband with this bag for his birthday and he loves it. He has yet to use it on a trip, so I guess we'll just have to plan one. We gave our son one of your duffle bags a year or so ago and he has taken it many places and loves it too. Thank you for making such good products. We will definitely add to our collection in the future.
AS STURDY AS I EXPECTED, PERHAPS TOUGHER
By Jon W, Michigan, January 16, 2013
I am thoroughly impressed with this bag, it is my first from Red Oxx, but I can tell already it won't be my last piece. The zippers are extremely heavy duty as are all of the seams. I have already ordered the dop kit. Traveled with both this past week and am extremely happy. The pockets on the ends are plenty large for chargers and everything else I wanted to stuff in them. The fact that it is Made in the U.S. was the #1 reason for the initial purchase, the quality brought me back.
By Hank, MA, December 20, 2012
Really this bag is the best I own. I travel a lot and know that your gear can take it. I traveled to Montana and Colorado for two weeks this summer and had everything packed in this bag and a backpack. Great use of space and the zippers etc are made to last. Best part is I'm supporting a great American made product. I have your mess kit, just received it last week and it is great too. Keep up the good work.

your bags are the best Iv'e ever seen . I'm a locomotive engineer with UPRR and this bag is the perfect size for me . even put a 9 can cooler in side it so I only have one bag to deal with .
By Gary Hanson, Kalispell MT, December 3, 2012
My son had a 36 hour leave from basic training from Fort Benning GA. I decided I wanted a carry on bag as I would not be there long. A friend recomended Red Oxx. I was surprised at how fast the order came and when I saw the bag and how heavy duty it was, I could not believe it.
The bag held 4 days of clothing and toiletries, plus a full size camera and additional lens. I also ordered the Lil Roy to put my electronics in, GPS, telephone, charger cords etc. and I still had room left over. I highly recomend this bag. I am going back for graduation and this is the bag I am taking.
A bag for the rest of my life
By Alex Pang, Menlo Park, CA, November 8, 2012
I bought the PR5 after years of having bags in this basic style-- one big compartment, two side compartments, nothing terribly fancy. The bag is fantastic. The saffron is eye-popping, the details and build are phenomenal, and it's a real pleasure to just hold-- not to mention fill with clothes and take on the road.
Generally the simplicity of the design is a virtue not a flaw; I wouldn't have minded an interior zippered pocket or keychain holder, just to more securely stash little things. But that's a pretty minor complaint.
So far I've used it only on one trip, but I expect to take it with me all around the world, and to use it for years. Indeed, I may have bought a bag that could last me the rest of my life. That would be cool.
By Jordon Nissen, Williston, ND , October 18, 2012
I have only briefly had my bad. It is the second addition to my red oxx collection and will be the most useful. I have had an overnight trip to Medora and a 2 day trip to Minot. Not exactly roughing it. I place this bag in the highest reguard. Even on a longer trip I would most likely only compliment it with a backpack. The space is as advertised, the quality with survive the greatest neglect or the love of a lifetime, and I hope I never have to call red oxx on their warranty because I love this bag.
By Christian, China, October 12, 2012
Great piece of kit! I have used it on 2 safaris now and it is very strong in build and quality. Shipping and service from Redoxx is super! I also recommend the flatdog rifle sleeve, a must if you want to keep your rifle safe e.g. while on a hunting vehicle.
Hope Redoxx can come up with some new hunting kit soon!
best bag I have ever owned!
By Jason L, Whippany, NJ, September 20, 2012
This is the best bag I have ever owned. I use it for travelling and for going to hockey tournaments. I can pack everything I need including clothes in this one bag. This is the second bag that I have bought. My wife kept stealing mine so I bought her one so she would have her own. I can not recommend this bag enough. It is great for everything and is easy to travel with, on both airlanes and in cars loaded with hockey gear.
By TCrow, TN, September 11, 2012
I purchased this bag for my husband who is a football official for TN high schools. It holds his clothing; ditty bag (with pockets for flags, whistles, lanyards, down keepers); cleated shoes in their own bag to keep grass/dirt/mud contained; towel; shower bag; shower shoes; watch/timekeeper; aspirin; rule book; and a few small items. I know that it holds all of this because I packed it.
I think that he will enjoy using it because it is definitely not wimpy. It is preferred that officials carry black bags; however, because he was having problems finding things in the bottom of his old black bag, I got this in Coal. I believe this is the best of both with the ends being black and the main exterior and interior being gray which helps him readily identify what he needs. I think this bag will last longer than he probably plans to officiate football.
By Charlene, Connecticut, September 6, 2012
My husband and I have used a Beanos bag on several worldwide trips. We find it to hold everything we need on the plane and off. We like it so much, that when our original one was stolen from a home robbery we had to order another one immediately! Then we decided one was not enough, we ordered another one so we would each have one. Keep up the great products.
By Carl Mischke, Johannesburg South Africa, September 6, 2012
This bag is beyond belief - from the depth of the colour, the sturdy construction (which was much more than I had expected), the solid feel and the powerful zips. Love the many compartments. Ideal for a week-end or even a week away (but not much longer).

Superb construction and fantastic design at a reasonable price! Extra bonus points to be able to support a small company manufacturing a great product in the U.S.A.
By S. P. McDonald, Savannah,GA USA, June 7, 2012
Did some serious research over almost a year before pulling the trigger on this and I was NOT disappointed! Bag arrived and was immediately impressed with the quality of the workmanship. This bag will be perfect for my frequent overseas travels. I consider this an investment and I think, (considering the quality,warranty etc), it is a damn good one! Will recommend!!
By Will, On the move, May 31, 2012
I ordered this bag late one week as a carry-on in anticipation for a move. However, they didn't have it in stock. Customer service worked with the production line to get it made that weekend and rushed out to me days before my move. Couldn't have asked for more. Thanks, Red Oxx!
By Shore Bob, NJ, May 17, 2012

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences in size of the Beanos bags?
The PR5, a step up from the PR4, was designed for legal carry-on travel. The PR5-5 is sized between the PR5 and the largest of the series, the PR6.
Will the PR5 qualify as a personal item?
The PR5 is designed as more of a smaller carry-on than a personal item. It's too big to be a personal item.
What's the difference between the PR5 Carry-on Bag and Flying Boxcar?
The Flying Boxcar has a full length main compartment with extra raised pockets located on the side of the bag, whereas the PR4/5 have a shorter main compartment and the pockets on both ends. The Flying Boxcar also features grab handles on the ends and a padded bottom with reinforced ballistic nylon, our toughest.
How many days of travel will fit in the PR5?
The PR5 was designed to hold up to a weeks worth of clothes. Some proficient packers could stuff it for 10 days. Obviously, it really depends on what you pack and how you pack it.
Can I fit my laptop in it?
Most 15" and up notebooks and tablets should fit in the main compartment.
Is the PR5 padded on the bottom?
Our Sun Chaser
and Flying Boxcar are padded on the bottom. The PR Safari Beano's series of duffel bags is not padded.
Why are there two zippers on the back pocket?
This is a special "pass through" pocket that allows you to mount the bag over the handle of a wheeled bag.
Can the zippers be locked?
Yes, you can us any TSA approved lock or our simple inexpensive Cable Locks
. Be aware that soft sided bags can be cut open with any sharp knife.
What are the D-Rings for at the end of the zippers?
The D-rings allows you to lock your zippers closed. Again, one can still cut open the bag with a knife.
What's the best way to pack the PR5?
We recommend the bundle wrap method developed by Doug Dyment of Onebag.com fame. Use our luggage packing diagram
(Pdf file). Which brings us to the next question...
Will the Eagle Creek packing cubes fit the PR5?
We recommend that you use our Nomad Shave Kit
, Lil Roy Gadget Bag
or Tri-fold Toiletry bag as packing cubes. You can color co-ordinate them to your preference and they come with useful carry handles. The Tri-fold Toiletry bag
is also a brilliant shave kit organizer due to its three individual zippered mesh pockets and unique fold open flat hanging design.
Is this the Railroad Grip?
The Railroad Grip is a different bag. It is sized differently to accommodate the lamp, rule book, radio and is built with a heavy-duty ballistic nylon. While the PR5 is a strong bag and is warranted for life, the Grip is the bag of choice for railroaders.
How does the PR5 compare to the Sky Train or Air Boss?
The PR5 is a duffel style bag with a main center compartment and two raised end compartments, whereas the Air Boss
is a carry-on bag with 3 main central compartments. The Sky Train is a double main compartment carry-on bag that has retractable backpack straps. All three bags are carry-on legal.
Will my shoes fit in the end pockets?
Depends on the shoe! A child's shoes would fit as would most women's average foot size, perhaps (7-8). Boots will not fit and most men's shoes would be too large.
Are there any interior pockets?
The PR5 features a main compartment, flat side pockets and dual end pockets. It does not have 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.
