Chica Trivia: A secretary we know wanted an everyday purse. Obviously a Chica is also Spanish slang for a beautiful teenage girl.

This is a fantastic bag. It's comfortable to carry, holds everything I need for doing errands or taking day trips. I am using it to replace an expensive designer bag I've had for several years and I like the Chica much better. Tougher and cooler at the same time. After spending months trying to find something that would work for me, I thought of the Chica and it just all came together. In fact I've just ordered another one in another color. I am a dedicated Red Oxx fan, have a Sky Train, Gator Bag, Mini Ruck and Lil Roy and couldn't be more pleased. These are the best bags ever.
So Much Better Than I Ever Thought
By Christine Lawrence, Carbondale Colorado, March 3, 2009
My go-to bag! After purchasing it in the summer of '07, I first began using it as an commuter purse easily slung across my body while riding my motorcycle to and from work. It has style! With winter, came ski instructing, and I was amazed at how much I could stuff into The Chica without becoming encumbered if I needed to run to catch the bus. My winter commutng essentials include: 20 oz aluminum water bottle, check book, iPod, Palm pilot, leather credit card/coin purse, cell phone, 3 pairs of glasses, 2 oz contact solution, 5x7 note pad, pens, sunscreen, chapstick, 2 energy bars, 4x5 zippered cloth bag for iPod accessories, wool glove liners, polartec hat, bandana, and 2-4 cutie clementine oranges for snacks. The Chica is amazing. I absolutely love it!

My 2 year old has dragged my bomb-proof Bordeaux Chica bag through snow, off high counters, slammed it in the car door, dumped cheerios and milk in and on the bag, and of course hit her 9 month old sister with it. AMAZINGLY, it is still going strong! I was skeptical of it's size at first, but it can fit my wallet, organizer, to-do lists, cell phone, a sippy-cup, 2 diapers and a package of wipes! All this and it is NOT bulky. I've received "where-did-you-get-that-bag" comments at the library from other moms, AND it's not too "mom/girlie" looking that my husband will also carry it as a small bag when he takes our girls out. I just can't say enough positive things and would recommend it to anyone wanting a non-bulky but spacious daily bag to carry (whether you have kids or not.) Oh, and did I mention the zipper can take quite a beating?
My Chica for school and more
By Emily Salsbury, , November 18, 2006
I got my Chica in the Fall of 2006 and have been using it like crazy. I am a college student and use my bag to carry a book and notebook to class, or carry file folders for job related paperwork. I use it as a purse for all the random essentials for everyday life. The hardest decision was what color of Chica I wanted. I decided on the dark blue and it matches most anything. I love the design, but also the durability. I toss it everywhere and I don't worry about stitches coming out or buttons falling off. It is AWESOME.
Can you live out of a Chica Bag? I did!
By Mandi Graham, , July 7, 2006
I love my Red Oxx Chica Bag. It saved my butt in Asia. While on a whirlwind trip of China, Japan and S. Korea my luggage was lost for 8 days. My Chica was my carry on and it held an extra change of clothes, money, passport, camera, mini first aid kit and cell phone. It was the perfect size! After a few days without my suitcase I was beginning to realize that traveling as a minimalist was rather pleasant. No big bulky luggage to have to check in and out of every international airport I hit; no worries about luggage weight limits; no lugging around huge suitcases! So now I know if I have to travel for 2 weeks with only a carry on I can definately do it! And that carry on will ALWAYS be my Red Oxx Chica!By the way, can I get another Red Oxx sticker? When my suitcase finally returned it mysteriously missing the Red Oxx sticker I had put on it!!
