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!

Bought for my daughters for Christmas. These are a great size and will last a lifetime!

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.

Took Lil Roy with me for a short visit to Sweden and Denmark.
Great for my camera, notebook, maps, and other odds and ends while walking around and all my cables, chargers, etc on the plane.
Just wish it was a little bit bigger so I could stuff my iPad in it as well.
Glad it came before I left.

I use this for my kids electronics. Different colors for each one. Very handy.
By Maggie, PA, July 9, 2011
I bought this bag to carry my Nook and little digital camera back and forth to work and wherever. It is just the perfect size. I can also carry just my Pen camera and accessories and they fit perfect. I plan on taking this bag to Europe to use as my handbag. Very well made bag. I highly recommend!
By Darrell, Washington, DC, May 9, 2011
I bought this for a two week trip to Europe for storing personal items on the long flights. It easily held my Kindle, camera and Blackberry plus their chargers, as well as snacks and a two guide books with plenty of room left over. In Europe I used it as a day bag for a camera, guide books and small purchases. Now that I am home, I use it as a lunch bag and store it my CPA briefcase.
Buy it. You'll love it.
By Jason, Vancouver, Canada, April 2, 2011
I received Lil' Roy today and it was much bigger than I though it would be. I have lots of room left after I put my digital camera and accessories in it.
Keep up the good work, Red Oxx.

I have read all of the rave reviews about Red Oxx products so I thought I'd start small and order a Lil Roy. After a week on the road, I am about to place my order for more bags! The Lil Roy is a great little organizer. I used mine for all of my electronics and chargers including the following: Nook and charger, digital camera and charger, Nintendo DS and charger, Ipod with headphones and charger, cell phone charger, and 2 USB converters. It sat in the backseat with me in the car as I rode all over the southeast. I was entertained at all times and all my gear was at my fingertips. Can't wait for my next purchase! Oh, and did I mention how awesome the red color is? I could always find my Lil Roy!
By Jamie, , March 11, 2011
I picked this up after reading the great reviews. They weren't wrong. This bag is perfect for all kinds of things. Right now it carries everything I need to get to and from work: track ball mouse, laptop power pack, over the counter meds, small flashlight, and two phone chargers. Recently I added a small change of clothes to the bag for an overnight business trip. It is really good at being big enough to fit a lot, but not so big where it is hard to stuff it in odd places in your luggage. I have yet to put a net book or tablet in it, but I will be interested to see how it does when the time comes. Quality is amazing. I could drag this thing behind a car and still use it the next day. If you are looking for a catch all bag that will keep you organized but not allow you to over pack (which is a good thing), this is it.

I already had one of these bags and I treated myself to a couple more. They are great for organizing all sorts of things.
I use one for all my camera cables and accessories, one for an in-flight bag when traveling (it's big enough to hold headphones, book and anything else I might need in flight).
The latest one has become the traveling bag for all my bathroom needs. The internal side pockets are ideal for separating those things that usually slip to the bottom and get lost, such as nail scissors and clippers. I like the way the bag opens right up, so that I can see exactly where things are.
By John O'Malley, Kings Mountain, NC, December 30, 2010
I needed a bag that would do two things:
1. It had to carry all I needed while in an airline seat without having to get up and get something.
2. It had to replace two different Eagle Creek packers I used for similar purposes.
What I got were those things and more. Besides meeting my flight needs:
1 I got a bag the could carry 3 lenses for my Canon DSLR and my Pro series Nikon Point and Shoot.
2. I got a bag that could could carry all my wires for all my potable tech needs.
3. I got a bag that tags along on my CPA briefcase strap for a "third" carryon. (Air Boss, CPA, and lil roy.)
4. I got a bag that carries six portable hard drives, cables, and adaptors.
This is a wonderful bag. I ordered two of them. One for me and one for my son! Your Red Oxx ensemble is not complete until you own lil Roy.
By Ann Kathyrn, California, December 12, 2010
First and foremost: This company is TERRIFIC in sending out the product QUICKLY! YEA!
About the Lil Roy; I've only had it a couple of weeks, but have used it for golfing. I use it to load my Sky Caddie, sunscreen, hair brush, wallet, snacks and everything else I don't want to leave in the car. Small, yet big enough for odds and ends to keep with me.
Try it, you'll like it!
By Bob, Dartmouth, MA, October 14, 2010
I bought this really as an experiment. I've been using my Air Boss bag for almost a year and love it, and came back to the Red Oxx site to see what other "toys" I could find. It turns out that the Lil Roy is a great solution for carrying my noise canceling headphones, some cables, and a paperpack. I can easily transfer this bag between my laptop case and my overnighter. The build on this is as solid as my Air Boss and I expect to have both for a very long time.
By Bruce, Rochester, NY, October 11, 2010
It's a fantastic bag for a road warrior. I use it to carry my electronics (Kindle, RSA headphone amp, IEMs, iPod Touch, chargers). When I reach security, I pull it out of my bag (Gator or Sky Train) to make it easy for TSA and to minimize the chance of having my bag opened up. I keep the Lil Roy in the seat pocket.
By Kenneth, Madison, Wisconsin, September 16, 2010
Works as advertised. BE AWARE though, a MacBook Pro will not fit in this bag.
By Dufus, Gilbert, AZ, August 8, 2010
When shopping for bags made in the USA I stumbled upon Red Ox. I purchased Lil Roy with no partiucular use in mind but rather to see the quality of the construction. The bag is made well and the large color choice is very nice. I recently took a two week trip and found a good use for this bag inside my luggage. Better yet (for Red Ox) my wife really likes it and I'm sure I'll have to buy her one.

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.

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 quality 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.
