Lil Roy is perfect - My first got stolen by m musician husband for all his wires and things; so I had to order another. It is the perfect size for all my 'stuff'' without being too big or bulky, and always organized - I never have to fish for my keys! The only thing that would make Roy even more perfect would be a removable shoulder strap so that I could carry Roy hands free when I use it as my handbag. Thanks, Red Oxx!
Holds a 7 inch tablet and a paperback
By Anonymous, US, October 1, 2012
Bought a Lil Roy to corral electronics when using the Market Tote as a carry on.
It works well. On the last trip, it held a 7 inch tablet in a cover, a couple of paperback books, charging cords, earplugs, and several protein bars. Handles are a nice length. Works as an over the arm purse, too.
Thinking of getting a couple of more to corral other things.

This bag is perfectly sized. It's big enough to carry lots of different things. But, it can also be squished down if you're only carrying a couple of items. It's a great extension of /addition to any packing container system.
I use it to carry my Google Nexus tablet (while it's in my Timbuk2 sleeve), my Bose QC15 headphones (including the hard case!), a fold-up stand for the tablet, a pair of extra earbuds, and a cleaning cloth. I could also fit a small notebook and a pen, if I chose. And, it zips up with no effort at all even with all this big stuff in it. Once I'm on the plane, I pull this Lil Roy out of my Air Boss, Air Boss goes in the overhead, this little bag goes under the seat or even in the magazine pouch. I couldn't believe I could fit my entire "in-flight entertainment system" in this bag.
I got one for me and one for a friend, who also loves it.
It rocks the Red Oxx quality and over-the-top build, which I love!
Highly recommended. It's perfect for me!

I use this bag to hold all my small electronics and their chargers. So far it works very well. I use it in conjunction with the air boss.
By Rebecca, Texas, August 12, 2012
Held all my adapters, power cords, etc. Great little bag.
By Doug Yriart, Northern Virginia, July 12, 2012
I needed a small travel bag to hold all my pocket stuff and book reader when going through TSA inspection. Lil Roy turned out just right, fits my cell phone, watch, keys, coins, comb from pockets, plus my Nook. Lil Roy goes through the xray while I go through the scanner. And then it looks good on the plane.
Lil Roy the perfect travel buddy.
By joi edwards, California, July 12, 2012
I have been looking for a multi-purpose small bag for travel and after looking at the reviews, got a purple Lil Roy. It is perfect for carrying those little things you need on the plane and yet fits in your bag during the security check. The mesh side pockets are great for your wallet and pocket stuff at the security desk. And when I get to my destination, it is the perfect purse. Especially since I travel for work alot, usually carrying a backpack, I can take this out of the pack and go to lunch or dinner. I may have to get some more of these. I can see alot of uses.
House Call Doctor & Lil Roy
By Dr. Crowe, Thousand Oaks, CA, May 14, 2012
We needed a rugged medical bag for this mobile practice. After trying other unsat bags, we found Red Oxx. The combination that works well is a double-width CPA bag plus two Lil Roy pouches.
One Lil Roy contains antibiotics and other meds we need on hand in the middle of the night. The other, in a different stand-out color, includes the scalpels, lidocaine and other gear to sew you shut again.
Our list of mobile gear seems to keep climbing. Looks like our next addition will be a Sun Chaser or Flying Boxcar with the padded bottom to protect the equipment.
By A. Ganaishlal, S. Florida, May 12, 2012
this is a great little tool bag...i use mine to carry a few screwdrivers, my volt meter, a flashlight, an adjustable wrench and some other small electrical tools.. i work on commercial cooking equipment, and this bag is the perfect size to carry into a busy hotel, restaurant or hospital kitchen... great product....
By Chad, Missouri, May 4, 2012
I keep buying these as inexpensive (not cheap), unique, made in America gifts. I use my own to carry maps, the others I have given as gifts are used for tools, travel toileties and one is a CCW. Great product.
By A northerner, Ontario, Canada, May 3, 2012
I purchased two of these bags expecting to use one for toilet articles and medications and the other for electronic gear. Both were to fit in my PR 5 duffel. I should have bought four. One has been "borrowed" by my wife (she says she has a thousand uses for it) and I use the other to carry my Bose Soundlink portable speaker which fits the device as if it were made for it. Like the PR5, this bag is very well designed, strong and attractive. The wide selection of colours allows one to know what each bag contains, making organization of small stuff much easier. I will be ordering two more in different colours. This is an exceptionally good product and well worth the price.

I use two of these with my railroad grip to hold all the small crap I carry around for days on end up and down the rails. These are the ultimate organizer for things like cell phone cords, bottles of Tylenol and vitamins. The railroad grip doesn't have any small pockets, so this serves the function that Tupperware containers used for me, and at a fraction of the weight. I can see having a few more of these for other things in my car or vacations with the daughter in tow..... The are small caves that hold ALOT of stuff!!!!
By Todd, Pittsburgh, PA, February 17, 2012
I grabbed this little guy to go along with my Air Boss. I pack all my chargers, along with little things I want to access during a flight- Ipod, etc.
It's a shelter in the storm of my luggage- I can quickly locate small items that would otherwise sink to the bottom of my Air Boss. I even put my watch, change, etc. into Lil Roy before going through security.
My wife used it for our SLR camera while in St. John & it fit perfectly.
A "no brainer" purchase to go along with a larger bag purchase.
By Matthew, Modesto, California, January 26, 2012
I bought the Lil Roy to replace a bag that failed me in short order.
My main use of the bag is to carry food items while I'm in the field. Working inside petrochemical plants and chemical plants, we sometimes don't know when we'll be able to break and get a meal. With the Lil Roy, I can take energy bars, dried fruits and a couple of bottles of water with me.
My gear isn't treated well and this bag has held up extremely well to the punishment.
I'll be purchasing another one real soon to use as a small equipment bag for some of my test equipment.
The fact that the Lil Roy is manufactured in the United States is a real big plus to me.
By Gina G., Bozeman, MT, January 12, 2012
I purchased this item as a Christmas gift for my husband. It's a very well-made product and a good, portable size. His e-reader and related items fit in it very well. He looks forward to using Lil Roy for amateur radio-related electronics as well. It's a great take-along bag, sturdy enough for camping and travel, and it looks good. Thanks for the really great product!

I would have given it a 5 had it been maybe 2 inches more all around.
By Donald M., Pacific Northwest, December 29, 2011
The bag is a great addition to my travel gear, providing a convenient place to stash "stuff". It's big enough to hold many items, but still small enough to be a "bag within a bag". My only potential negative is that the exterior material color is also on the inside. This can make it a bit difficult finding items quickly, as it can be "dark" in the bag if you have the navy or black fabric. My next one will be in a lighter color to make it easier to find things inside. Otherwise, it gets a solid 5 stars!
By Reese, NC, December 24, 2011
Bought for my daughters for Christmas. These are a great size and will last a lifetime!
By Alison, UK, October 13, 2011
I admit I got a Lil Roy thinking I would use it as a packing cube or gadget bag, but it's turned into one of my favorite Red Oxx pieces of kit.
You see, I forgot to bring purse on my last bizz trip and a Lil Roy worked amazingly well instead!
By David, Kalamazoo, August 15, 2011
I use this bag to carry all of the assorted cords and wires that the digital life accumulates when traveling.
It stays packed at home, we just grab the bag and go.
I like the mesh inside pockets, it gives me a place to put pens and pencils. I also found it very convenient for the spare change that you accumulate while traveling. Just zip it up and it can go though the scanner at the airport.
If this bag were just a smidgen bigger it would be perfect. It will hold a set of full size headphones with ease, but an iPad just won't fit. While it isn't sold as an iPad bag it is so close to fitting. Just an inch bigger and it would be absolutely perfect.

MULTI-USE MINI BAG.
The Lil Roy is it, your favorite new gadget bag! Developed after a gentleman named Roy who wanted a little bag for his tire chains, the Lil Roy is our chameleon hideout bag in the Red Oxx gear lineup. Is it a travel purse? Sure, we've had some ladies carry one out in the field as their purse or airline "personal item". Camera bag? Experience has found that our Lil Roy makes a just-right sized GoPro camera bag or digital video camera bag. Video Game case? It will fit video games as well as a variety of remote controls. Lunch bag? Sure, but do you really want to muck up the inside? Kindle and Mini iPad bag? A Kindle reader will nicely tuck into one of the interior side pockets (the pocket will not snap shut, however).
That's right, hundreds of our satisfied customers have used it for all of the above and many new uses keep cropping up daily. Moms tell us their kids use it to pack their toys and games in for road trips, keeping the amount of "extras" organized and clutter down to a minimum. Some folks have even found the Lil Roy useful as a "Ditty Bag" (also known as a "sailors housewife" - ie: an emergency sewing kit). For more great ideas for the multi-use mini bag of the century, check out some of our Lil Roy product reviews in the reviews tab. Tell us how YOU use your Lil Roy in a product review and if it's pretty cool, you could win a prize!*
LIL ROY AS PACKING CUBE.
A pack-it or packing cube? Wow, now there's a clever use for a Lil Roy. Color co-ordinate your belongings for quick ID and use the grab handles for easy retrieval. As a packing cube, the handles allow you to hang it on the doorknob while at your hotel for easy access. The handles also make it quick to pull out of your packed travel bag. Since you have 12 vibrant colors to choose from, you can "color code" your Lil Roy Packing Cubes. Then it's a snap to find your stuff and since it has handles, it's easy to pull out of your suitcase. You can also check out our line of packing cubes designed to work with Red Oxx Carry-on bags.
SATISFY YOUR INNER ORGANIZER.
The Lil Roy features twin Leno "stiff mesh" pockets on each inside wall with Red Oxx Mil-Spec snaps to keep things contained. Our "stiff mesh" is made to take a beating and not tear or wear out unlike "soft mesh" pocket linings. Stiff mesh features smaller holes and a tighter weave, this makes it "stiff" and hold up better under duress. It's the same mesh we use on our Aviator line of Mesh bags.
Inside, the Lil Roy's pockets are sewn down on the bottoms and sides so your stuff stays contained once it's snapped in. Each webbed handle is double cross stitched to the bag and wraps all the way around. Massive #10 YKK heavy-duty nylon self-locking zippers open when you need them to and stay locked when you don't. Our proprietary Fair Trade Monkey Fist Zip Knots provide bag opening and closing assistance so easy you'll wonder how you used zippers without them.
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 such a small bag, Lil Roys are built tough. Starting with one of the most durable textile materials available, 1000 weight CORDURA® nylon, we use super strong UV resistant thread's stitched into every seam. Each stress point, such as where the handles attach to the bag, is box stitched. Rugged, reliable and tough.
BOUND AND BAGGED.
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. Our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in competitors gadget bags that brag of "binding" their edges.
MY, WHAT BIG ZIPPERS YOU HAVE!
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.
COLOR COORDINATE YOUR ORGANIZATION.
With so many vibrant colors to choose from, you should have a Lil Roy in every color for storing around the house or garage and still find you'd like to have a few more for the car, perhaps as a first aid kit, portable DVD player bag or to store emergency travel supplies like tire chains, flares and flashlights. Consider buying two or more Lil Roys, you'll always find a use for more than one! Thanks Lil Roy! You are versatility in a mini bag redefined!
Whatever your needs, chances are the Lil Roy, a handy little multi-use mini bag, will do the trick.
