Safari-Beanos Bag PR 5.5

Larger than Life! Go ahead, pack it as full as you can.
A duffel that easily holds up to 50 pounds.
This size in the Beanos Series Safari Duffel Bags was developed after the new weight restrictions limited travelers to 50 lbs on domestic flights. This is the travel duffel bag to take out into the world for your 7 to 10 day trip!
The large end pockets can hold your hiking boots on one end and your Tri-fold Shave Kit along with your flip flops in the other. A zippered front flat pocket keeps your passport handy. The pass-through panel on the back side is designed for use with wheeled luggage as a docking sleeve. Unzip top and bottom zippers and slip the panel over the wheeled bags telescoping carry handle. Or leave the bottom zipper closed and it doubles as a second flat exterior pocket. See the photos section to see what this looks like.
NO SLIP STRAP.
Think lightweight, forget those clumsy wheels and telescoping handle that waste space and add weight. This is not technically a legal carry-on bag, per se, but if packed light and carried by a larger person, you might be able to sneak one on board. Speaking of carry, the sturdy detachable and adjustable padded no-slip Claw shoulder strap is the perfect blend of reliability and function.
Easily zip open or closed any compartment or pocket with our exclusive proprietary Monkey Fist Zip Knots and the toughest, biggest zipper for duffel bags available: the #10 YKK auto-locking nylon zipper.
Handy flip open lid allows unencumbered access to the spacious main compartment. Stainless double turn-snaps secure your gear. With such a roomy main compartment, you can pack all you'll need for your much needed vacation and still have room to bring all of your souvenirs home. When a PR6 is too big and a PR5 is too small, the PR5.5 fits the "travel light" philosophers ticket.

"Beanos" Trivia: Named after our friend "Beano" who needed a gear bag that could carry his clothes and still be carry-on legal. Named after his grandfather, a bean farmer in the midwest, whom he looked like as a kid. Formerly the Super Beano, the bag is now available in several sizes and is in it's 4th stage of design revision.
Blown away by the quality!!!!
By Steve Winkler, Galesburg, IL, November 16, 2007
Wow!!! I have friends that have purchased the Railroad Grip and recommended Red Oxx to me. I got on line and purchased the 5.5 in Safari with much anticipation for my first trip with my new bag. I was extremely pleased with the purchase due to the quality and the size of the 5.5. It is a little bigger than the Railroad Grip, which is exactly what I needed. I have recommended Red Oxx to other BNSF employees that have asked me about my 5.5. I believe, that I am the only one that has the 5.5 at this time, but I foresee other employees ordering the 5.5 in the near future. GREAT BAGS FOR ANY OCCASION. I NOW ALSO HAVE A WISH LIST FOR MY WIFE TO VIEW!!! HINT HINT.
Australia and New Zealand Aren't As Tough as this Duffle!
By Richard Hahn, , December 13, 2006
I took my PR 5.5 on a six week trip through New Zealand and Australia, traveling by car, train, ferry, helicopter and airplane. It was kicked, stuffed, poked, thrown and carried through some rough country and conditions. It still looks the same as the day I received it. There is no better quality anywhere. People carrying those cheap, mass-produced duffles made in China and the rest of the Third World take one look at mine and ask where I got it. They have broken straps, rips and broken cheap zippers done up with duct tape. I guess there's a way to break a Red Oxx product but I haven't found it yet. I now own two duffles, a Gator, an Air Boss, a C-Ruck a Mini Ruck and a 'Lil Roy. I take different bags depending on the trip but I NEVER use anything that wasn't made by Red Oxx. The products are, simply stated, THE BEST!

Have 11 grandchildren, quick weekend trips via SWA, around the west, this is a great bag. Always asked "where did you get it?" I can fill it full of camera gear, treasures for the children, and still have room left for me and I know I can always carry it on board with me. Plus the bright yellow is easily identifiable!

Frequently Asked Questions
What are the differences in size of the Beanos bags?
The PR5.5, a step up from the PR5, was not designed for legal carry-on travel. The PR5.5 is sized between the PR5 and the largest of the series, the PR6.
Is the PR5.5 carry-on legal?
The PR 5.5 was not designed to be carry-on legal.
How many days of travel will fit in the PR5.5?
The PR5.5 was designed to hold a weeks worth of clothes, or around 50 pounds. Some proficient packers could stuff it for two weeks. Obviously, it really depends on what you pack and how you pack it.
Can I fit my laptop in it?
Most 15 inch and under notebooks should fit in the main compartment.
Is the PR5.5 padded on the bottom?
Our Sun Chaser and Flying Boxcar are padded on the bottom. The Safari Beanos series 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.
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.
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.
Are there any interior pockets?
The Safari Beanos series has exterior flat and raised pockets only.
What's the best way to pack the PR5.5?
We recommend the bundle wrap method developed by Doug Dyment of Onebag.com fame. Which brings us to the next question.
Will packing cubes fit in the PR5.5?
We like to use our Lil Roy
and Nomad Dope Bag
as packing cubes. You can color code your belongings and use the handles to hang them in your room for easy access.
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 PR5.5 is a strong bag and is warranted for life, the Grip is the bag of choice for railroaders.
How does the PR5.5 compare to the Sky Train or Air Boss?
The PR5.5 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 three 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 PR5-5 features a main compartment, flat side pockets and dual end pockets. It does not have interior pockets.
Will the PR5.5 meet checked luggage standards?
Yes, the PR-5.5 is designed for checked travel.
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.
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.
