The travel basket worked out so well for me. Everynight that I am on the road I know exactly where my personal items are, (watch, phone, moneyclip, etc)they are in my travel basket. The travel basket is light weight and folds up so that it stores easily in my carry on luggage. Its great item for all individuals that travel a lot and tend to lose things.Thanks Red OXX for the travel basket.Tyler Beth

October 8th, 2006 I cannot lie. When I first spoke to Jim Markel (owner/operator Red Oxx) about the the Travel Basket, one question came to mind: Why and where would I ever use a piece like this? One word came to mind: superfluous. Nevertheless, I put my doubts and fancy words aside and took the basket to Europe. As I traveled throughout the Netherlands and Germany, I began to realize that this "overlooked" piece of luggage was really quite handy. For those of you unfamiliar with the basket, it can best be described as a flat, cloth tray with buttons. When unbuttoned, the tray packs flat so that it takes up virtually no space in your luggage. Once removed, the basket's buttons snap together to form four walls. While in Europe I used this handy device to house my passport, hotel keys, watch, wedding ring, stray euro, salt and pepper shakers, and even liters of beer--Yes, this little basket IS QUITE versatile. The genius of this unobtrusive luggage piece lies in what it provides: a central and accessible location for the small yet important items that tend to scatter about a hotel room. Though I was initially skeptical of the basket's utility, I came to admire and even depend on this little basket. Yes folks, this gear IS worth it.

I've seen similar items in catalogs before, and always kinda wanted one but couldn't really get over the idea it was kind of a frivolous item. Then my wife and I stayed with some relatives, in a well-used home-office that was a pretty good black hole for absorbing items - so far two packages of stuff we'd forgotten have been sent to us. Having a place to put keys, wallet, etc. when you travel suddenly made one hell of a lot of sense. I'm far more muddle-headed than usual when traveling, and I misplace stuff plenty often at home. A portable "right place" to put stuff makes sense.
It's big enough without being too big, and the foam padding in the bottom is a nice addition, which makes the thing useful even as a makeshift pillow (to soften an airplane or car window, for example).

This is a great little basket that spends a lot of time on my desk at work. A bit addicting to open and close, open and close... :D Only drawback is that other desk items now look quite dull! Now if only airport screeners would let me use instead of their sad little baskets.

Never misplace your pocket travel essentials again.
YOUR PERSONAL VALET.
The preferred way to keep your pocket goods accounted for when you're traveling or even if you're not. This nifty little portable coin tray catchall is ideal for your car keys, room keycard, smartphone, pocket change, sunglasses, any loose pocket items you want handy, but not stuffed in your pockets while you chill. Available in 12 stunning colors, some folks pick a bright color like red or saffron so they can quickly spot their Travel Basket on the hotel nightstand and not forget their important pocket items.
The exposed fabric edges on the Travel Basket's rim are bound using a thick binding material. All of our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in competitors valets that brag of "binding" their edges. Inside the bottom there's 4 lb. Volara closed cell foam padding and the fold-up walls are padded with Hollowfill to cushion your valuables.
The Red Oxx Travel Basket key tray is also a must-have catchall accessory for your office, dorm room, camping tent or home. Simply snap the sides up and you have a padded coin valet for spare change and the like. For convenient travel, unsnap it flat for easy storage in your luggage, it's only 1/4 inch thick. Buy two or more baskets, you'll always find a use for more than one!
We can embroider your company logo onto the tray's bottom (replaces our logo) for affordable and appreciated employee or client travel gifts (minimum corporate orders apply, call 1-888-733-6999 to speak with a representative).
