Behold! The Gator.
A compact carry-on bag with a big appetite.
We can tell you how others have used this multi-purpose carry-on bag, but we're sure you'll think up something new. Just like its hungry namesake, this tough-skinned beauty will swallow up everything you need for travel. Ideal as an compact airline carry-on and easily classified as a personal item, a shooting bag for the range, SLR bag, diaper bag, C-pap bag, take it to work with a packed lunch; you get the picture.
WHAT ABOUT POCKETS?
Secure your delicate equipment in the Gator's rigid-formed, shock-resistant padded main compartment. No need to carry separate hydration, the Gator features dual elastic beverage end pockets. The expandable gusseted side pockets help you to keep track of gadgets like cell phones, iPods, sunglasses, and more.
These side pockets feature the exclusive "Red Oxx finger loop snap closures" which are Mil-Spec stainless steel snaps with thoughtfully designed thumb loops that make closing these handy pockets a "snap." This allows one-handed snapping closure. Simply slip a finger into the loop under the snap post and use your thumb to press the post in place. A simple genius solution that prevents crushing items under the snaps. Behind each gusseted pocket are hidden flat slip pockets for that little extra bit of storage.
Inside the Gator carryall bag, there's a full-length mesh divider with four slots for pens and pencils and two mesh pockets. Located on the back is another full-length zippered pocket. 4lb. Volara closed cell padding envelopes the bag in the front, bottom, and back, protecting your precious contents from damage.
A HANDY MULTI-PURPOSE BAG.
Fully adjustable Claw Shoulder Strap will not slip. Or carry it with the wraparound handle handclasp. Popular with the demanding business crowd and all the rage with the adventure travel crowd, Gator Travel Bags are durable companions for many uses: SLR camera bags, diaper bags, NetBook or Tablets, C-pap bags, pistol range, you name it, the Gator will eat it. Consider it your "bag of all trades."

Gator Trivia: When Red Oxx President Perry Jones had young children he was embarassed to appear like he was carrying a diaper bag. After they were out of diapers he wanted a decent range bag to take with him shooting. The name Gator was selected because a Gator is sly and stealthy and can quickly consume large prey, sometimes larger than itself, with it's enormous mouth.
By Patricia, Boston, MA, May 27, 2010
As a Red Oxx fan, I've had my eye on this bag for a long time and finally took the plunge. My first impression upon opening the package was, "Wow, what a sharp looking bag." My next impression was, "Wow, is it small." While believing other Reviewers about the bag's endless capacity but needing to prove it to myself, I then proceeded to stuff the main section of the bag with my computer and everything else I normally pack in my carry-on (including a Lil Roy stuffed to the max). I then emptied the contents into my very large handbag/briefcase that I normally use as a carry-on. To my amazement, the handbag/briefcase was stuffed beyond normal capacity and would not close. My conclusion? The Gator is an optical illusion. It is indeed larger than it appears. Love it.
By TL, PA, May 21, 2010
All the other reviews share the benefits and a few shortcomings of this bag, so I'll just share a new use I found for it. It's a great bag for a Bose SoundDock Portable, for which Bose offers a bag that is rather one-dimensional for $60 and no doubt made in an overseas sweat shop. So to me, the Gator is a no-brainer! I'll have this with me on most of our summer car trips with the SoundDock and room left for plenty of other gadgets. I also have taken this on a plane, although usually my laptop bag goes as my personal item (along with my Air Boss). And it's been a diaper bag, and a lunch box for trips to the zoo with the kids... I would like to use it as a range bag but I don't want TSA sniffing any GSR... oh yeah, I said I was only going to talk about ONE use. Gator is appropriate since it swallows a lot of gear, but Chameleon would have worked too!
By Rob Donoghue, Columbia, MD, May 13, 2010
This bag is both larger and smaller than I expected. When it arrived, I was surprised at how small it was, but when I compared it to other bags with a similar profile, it's much more roomy.
The construction and materials are top notch. No complaints there.
As a gear bag for everything short of a laptop, this holds up pretty well, but if you're thinking of using it as an all-purpose bag, it's important to remember that this is designed to be a compact carryon, and most of the design decisions support that.
For example, that means it's a little bit short. This isn't about laptops, but about papers. I like to be able to pack manilla folders or a padfolio, and the bag is just a little bit too short for that. Such things can go in a briefcase, sure, but I was disappointed that I can't really use this as an all-in-one bag.
Similarly, the padding on the strap has tremendous grip, but is in a fixed position, so if you want to reposition the bag for a long walk, it's going to get awkward. For carrying a bag from plane to car this is a great design. For walking around it's not so rough.
None of these things are flaws with the bag, just things worth mentioning to set expectations.
That said, there is one genuine flaw in the bag's design that was a little puzzling. Specifically, the water bottle pockets have an issue if you use any kind of bottle outside of a certain range. For the longest time I was wondering why my bottles kept falling out - the pockets are certainly _wide_ enough to accommodate many bottles.
The problem, it turns out, is twofold. The bottle pockets are short to begin with, but to make them flush with the bag, they have no tenting of material, which means they have no flat bottom for a bottle to settle against. It also means the wider the bottle, the shorter the pocket. This kind of stinks.
That said, the bottle pockets make very good easy-access pockets to put things like keys or a phone in, so they're not a total loss.
All in all I'm very happy with this bag. It has served as a very effective travel bag, gym bag, camera bag and as a really fantastic diaper bag (The smallness of the bottle-pockets are no problem for baby bottles) but it definitely loses a little utility for just being a tiny bit too small for me to transport papers in.
(Of course, there's a good case to be made I should just buy the Metro or CPA briefcase and call it a day)
One of the few legal bags for "Spirit"
By Michael W., San Mateo, CA, May 11, 2010
Now that Spirit Airlines is charging for overhead space, it seems the last free space left on their airlines is underseat. While the Gator appears to be nominally a couple of inches over the "underseat size" limit they posted last time I looked, I've easily fit my Gator under other airlines' seats, even those with A/V gear hogging a lot of that space.
I highly recommend the Gator for underseat carry if you are stuck with this type of limitation. For that matter, I highly recommend it even if you are not - my Gator, with medicines, toiletries (including 3-1-1 pouch), small water bottle, change of underwear/socks, change of lighweight shirt/pants, never leaves my side.
From ash-spewing volcanos in Europe to bad weather over here to political turmoil - you get the picture - it's more critical than ever to have a "go" bag at our sides, for camping out in airports after our luggage has been checked, to overnighting it in a nearby hotel.
BTW in the "customer tips" dept., could Red Oxx please consider changing the design on the interior panels slightly, to match the Metro briefcase? Just "detach" the bottom of one of the panels so a netbook will slide in on one side more easily? This bag is the perfect size for netbooks - a lucky coincidence, or Red Oxx prescience? Doesn't matter, please make it just a little more "netbook friendly."
Perfect size personal item
By Sandy, Denver, Pennsylvania, April 29, 2010
I purchased the matching gator to match my Sky Train and found it to be a perfect size for an under the seat personal item. Its large enough to hold my camera, contents of my purse, noise cancellation headset travel documents, carry-on liquids bag, a book and a bottle of water. wow! The best part was I could find everything in the bag since it has small compartments with an easy to use snap system. On my return trip I even added in some purhased items. It carries on the shoulder nicely and fits under the seat of the plane upright with space left over for feet. I highly recommend the gator.
By Sally M, Racine, Wisconsin, March 23, 2010
Combining Sky Train and Gator bag reviews in both places: I purchased the Sky Train and Gator Bag after months of reading reviews on this website. I've just returned from a 10-day guided tour of Italy where I put them to the test. I took only these two bags. It's astounding how much (too much) that I could stuff into the Sky Train. Not an atom of space left for purchases. I would advise against packing them this full. They are superb quality bags that got bashed around a lot. I had planned to carry it all on my back, but at the last minute checked the Sky Train. If I were younger, I probably could have managed it, but as a 69-year-old , 5'2", 120 pound gal, it was too much weight for me to use the backpack straps. The type of tour we were on was one of those whirlwind, different-hotel-every-night, bags unpacked and repacked every night which became tedious. Here's what I packed: 3 pairs of jeans, a sweatshirt hoodie, rain slicker jacket, hat, 1 blouse, 2 cardigans, 1 turtleneck sweater, two knit tops, seven T-shirts, 1 vest, 6 jockey camisoles, 1 bra, 10 pairs of panties, 5 pairs of socks, 2 pairs of shoes, 1 pair of flip flops, 2 inflatable hangers, extra plastic bags, envelopes and assorted flat things in the outer long pocket. I bundle-packed, using Magellan's 3 packing cubes as the core, which worked wonderfully for t-shirts and underwear. Everything else (cosmetics. Medications, paperwork, passport, camera, lumbar support cushion, umbrella, 2 pairs of glasses, 1 pair sunglasses, candy, phrasebook, scarves, iTouch, shower cap, Kleenex, expandable shopping bags, soap for clothes washing, and more) all went into the gator. The gator is a handsome bag, but I found it difficult to get into and look for items-possibly due to its stiffness. That is why it didn't get 5 stars. It's amazing how much you can put into it. The outside zipper pocket is very tight and not easily accessed. The two outside flap pockets are excellent and useful. In the future, I'll take these bags on shorter trips with fewer items, which will render them easier to use. All in all, the quality of these two bags is definitely as advertised. I love the zippers! They still look brand new.
Perfect under-seat aircraft bag
By Eric, Minneapolis, MN, March 22, 2010
I picked up this bag to be used as my personal item in addition to my carry-on bag. I have yet to find an aircraft that won't fit this bag under the seat, including the smaller aisle seats on a 737-300 or CRJ200. This is important because this is the bag that holds everything I cannot easily replace if it got lost, so something that won't be forced to be checked is important. In the Gator I stuffed: 1 Acer Timeline 1810T (11.6" notebook) in neoprene protective sleeve, Garmin GPS in hard-shell case with car traffic/power adapter, Canon Powershot camera in hard shell case with battery charger and extra battery, Sennheiser noise canceling headphones in case, and a dry toiletries kit that also holds my prescription meds. In the organizer I have a Fisher space pen, an LED pen light, 2 USB to microUSB cables, spare Ethernet cable, MP3 player, and an AC to USB power adapter. The space behind the organizer was great for storing my game tickets in a nice safe place. The front pockets were used to hold my AC adapter for my notebook and Garmin portable friction mount for the GPS. The elastic pouches on the ends were great for holding a small adapter cube for turning 1 outlet into 3 (great for sharing power at the airport) and a pair of sunglasses in a hard case. The snap-clasp handles were really great because I was able to roll up my polar fleece light jacket and wrap the handles around it so I didn't have to carry it around separately once at the airport. This bag isn't big on features, but every one one of them is useful. The foam that gives the bag some padding also helps it maintain its shape which makes packing the bag a breeze. My only gripe (and the reason for removing 1 star) is that I wish the D-rings for the shoulder strap were mounted higher -- when the bag gets loaded on one side the position of the D-rings becomes a pivot point and the bag will tilt or even invert as you pick it up by the strap. This is a minor gripe because it's only a problem if you pick the bag up without the main zipper closed, and once the bag is resting against your side it becomes a non-issue.
Incredibly versatile 'take-anywhere' bag
By Ramon, West Chester, OH, February 23, 2010
A truly multi-purpose carry-on bag. Quality and workmanship is first class. Love the olive color and the contrasting black top, hand strap and front pockets. The front gusseted pocket are handy for keeping the smaller items organized. The back pockets help keeps paperwork flat and documents secure. The detail of providing 4-pen holders that are large enough to accommodate even markers and a lens brush, and the two secret pocket behind the front pockets are just another tribute to how this bag was well thought out and designed. The end pockets are great to have for a bottled water at one end and my mobile on the other. The shoulder strap is incredibly non-slip and comfortable This bag easily holds my Macbook (a pleasant surprise), an slr, a P&S, rangefinder and a number of camera accessories, voice recorder, power cords, batteries and charges, etc. Although I originally planned on using this for travel to Europe and Asia, I have now ended up using it very day. No doubt it will hold travel guide-books or just pages out of those guides as I do to keep the weight down. It can really hold a lot of stuff. This terrific bag is well worth its price. And it's made in USA. Thanks Red Oxx.
My favorite RedOxx product
By Gary Fischman, Northern NJ, February 22, 2010
I've used my Gator for several trips - Tanzania, Costa Rica, Palm Beach, and a few other trips. It is the perfect sized carry on. I generally use it for my camera gear, docs, a book, glasses, sunglasses, and a few other odds and ends. I only have 1 suggestion to make it better: A snap in the center of the interior mesh pocket to hold it against the side so it doesn't bulge into the compartment, forcing me to have to put my hand in there to move it out of the way when I put in my camera. Otherwise, its ideal!
By Parrot Head, Denver, CO, February 15, 2010
Just got back from a 2-day business trip to Sacramento.
I decided to travel as light as I could and took my Gator as my main bag and my Lil Roy as my carry on.
The Gator held one pair of pants, 2 shirts, pajamas, socks, underwear and a small dop kit.
The Lil Roy holds so much more than you'd think: Moleskine notebook, Kindle, camera and charger, and iPhone and headphones.
I breezed through the airports. It's amazing how many business travelers still lug wheeled bags - no thanks!
You CAN travel much lighter than you think - try it sometime!
By Dan, Medford, MA, February 11, 2010
As everyone says, this is a well-made bag. I'm returning it because it's just more than I need for a simple shoulder bag that can carry a book, a bottle, and a point-and-shoot camera on board. The extra bulk, separate pockets, etc. are more suited, imho, to an SLR camera and just more *stuff*, which (as a recovering packrat) I'm trying to avoid. A simpler, more compact (or flatter) bag would be a nice Red Oxx addition.

By Christian, Edenton, NC, January 21, 2010
I bought the Gator as a camera bag for a digital SLR and it worked out perfectly. The camera with a 55-220mm lens and lens hood attached fits nicely with room for the spare 18-55mm lens beside. The padding provides nice protection and keeps the bag's shape when open for easy access to contents. The inside pockets are great for lens filters and other accessories and there is plenty of room in the outside pockets. The only issue is figuring out what to do with all the extra room. So far, the camera bag has pulled double duty as a diaper bag, a picnic basket and a carry-on and has performed very well. I can't speak to its durability yet as I just got the bag, but both of the eight year old safari beanos have yet to show any signs of wear. I suspect the camera will wear out long before the Gator will.
By Mike, Indiana, January 13, 2010
Since I discuss both the Air Boss and the Gator in this review, I am going to post this review in both sections.
I purchased the Air Boss several years ago and a Lil Roy to hold my electronic components in the middle compartment of the Air Boss. As I said in an earlier review, the Air Boss is a great bag.
I am a big proponent of "one bag" travel; however, I have the following minor issues with true one bag travel that have caused me to carry a smaller "personal item" bag along with the Air Boss. It also caused me to buy a Gator.
First, when I store my electronics, reading materials, etc., in the Air Boss it sometimes makes the bag heavier than I want and more difficult to fit in the overhead compartment of an airplane, especially smaller planes. Second, when getting on a plane, I don't like standing in the aisle, delaying those behind me, while pulling those things I need for the flight out of the Air Boss before storing it. Inevitably, in my haste to get out of the way I forget something and then have to retrieve it later, normally having to wait until the fasten seat-belt sign is turned off. It is similarly inconvenient to re-pack when trying to deplane, meaning that I am normally carrying my Air Boss and various personal items (coat, book, water, phone, etc.) individually on my way out of the plane to the gate area before re-packing. Finally, I now travel with a netbook. I have to take it out to go thru security, then re-pack it to go to the gate, then pull it out of the Air Boss along with everything else when getting into my seat for use during the flight and then re-pack it for deplaning. Kind of a pain.
To address these issue, for awhile, I used an old LL Bean briefcase, on which I put a RedOxx claw shoulder strap that I carried as my personal item; but it was too large for what I needed. Hard to find things and the contents kept shifting inside the briefcase. So I decided to try the Gator. It seemed to and in fact does meet my needs.
As before, ordering was a snap and delivery was prompt. Great service.
The Gator is the perfect size for my needs. Now I keep stuff in the Gator that would otherwise be carried in my Air Boss, such as my netbook, ipod, phone, headphones, thumb drive, chargers, reading and writing materials, water and food. I keep a Lil Roy in the Gator to store cords, etc. Works great. When getting on a plane, I put the Gator containing all my flight needs on my seat while storing the Air Boss above. Quick and no worries. The Gator then stores easily under the seat in front of me with room for my feet. I have everything I need at my fingertips. Perfect.
The Gator is small enough that it doesn't get too heavy and is easy to carry; and my Air Boss is lighter and thinner so it is also easier to carry and store. For me, the lighter Air Boss and Gator together are a perfect fit for "one bag" traveling even tho I'm using two bags. The key is not to over-pack either bag.
Finally, I have been using the Gator as my briefcase on a daily basis. My only problem is that every time I look at it the Gator I keep thinking, "Hmm, what is the next fun trip I can take to use my RedOxx bags again?" It makes concentrating for the rest of the day much more difficult.
Thanks for your fantastic products
By Matalin Hatchard, New Zealand, December 30, 2009
I'm writing after my recent purchase of the Gator Bag. I came across you products purely by chance, through a full page write up on your Air Boss bag in New Zealand Urbis Design magazine. As a world traveller/nomad all my life I have been through many many many bags, with a number lasting just one world trip. The fact that no holds barred rock solid, lifetime durability was being tackled was an exciting concept, most other crap out there make stuff to a price point and expect the end user to just keep buying the same thing every year when it breaks.
Kudos to Redoxx for stepping out of that mold and building a product you can be proud of, and stand by it's quality for a lifetime.
To say I didn't REALLY need a bag would be an understatement - I have a $600.00 top of the line hiking backpack, a suitcase, a big gym style carry all, a padded lap/backpack (durable mountain designs one, but poor design concept for maximising use) and a leather briefcase/satchel. Also a brand new domke F-5XB camera bag that is being shipped as we speak.
So it took a lot for me to go ahead and purchase. I read all the reviews of all your bags, compared specs, tried to think what combination would last me a lifetime, and what the practical implications were in the choices... But what it came down to was this: your bags are the most bad-ass quality and well thought out practical designs I've ever come across. I could not say no, even when the Gator's price to ship to New Zealand increases 50% with shipping.... So my un-used Domke bag I special ordered from the states will be onsold online, and I look forward with anticipation to receiving and using the Gator to within an inch of its life and then some..
PLUS the only reason I didn't buy my main bag at the same time was making a choice between:
Air Boss, Sky Train & Sun Chaser
So hard to choose, but one of them will be my next purchase. The only hard factor is the more limiting carry on restrictions of air travel in the southern hemisphere...
Thank you for stepping up and providing a product that is built to be loved, and used for more than a year, and for more than one generation!!
By Dave, Arlington VA, December 7, 2009
This is great niche bag. I recently used it and a SkyTrain for a 6-day trip to Germany. For the first time in years I passed on the usual Tumi 22" rollaboard suiter and a Scott Leather flight kit bag since this was not a business trip. No laptop or files, just an iPaq210 and Blackberry.
The Gator worked well, taking all my electronics plus a book, Clif bars, Bose QCs, iPod, the 1Q (TSA) liquid/gel bag, Levenger pocket briefcase, and a few clear file folders for documents, and a lot more. The thing stands upright due to the padding and doesn't broadcast "laptop inside," a plus in some parts of Europe.
It's also great for getting to work here in DC: either driving or on the Metro - it won't handle a big leather zip folio or something similar but takes file folders and a sandwich and then some.
I use the front pockets for a Brooks Bros pocket calendar and other accessories and they are secure.
I have used it as a bike bag a couple of times with a jerry-rigged chest strap (3/4" fastex strap from REI) and rides just fine.
My tip of the day is that I use the Platypus soft water bottles on the road. They fold flat when empty - then once I'm thru security I fill up in the Admirals Club where they have free bottled water, so I'm set if in coach and its a hassle getting hydrated...
By Anonymous, Washington, DC, December 3, 2009
A work colleague and fellow commuter with a Gator recommended the bag
and it is proving to be great for commuting via public transit. With the design of the pockets, I can get everything I need without looking, much less fumbling, and the non-slip shoulder strap means I can be hands free while walking or standing. The semi-rigid structure of the main compartment is a big plus this way as well. I think the color options are good--I went with Amethyst. I'm petite, so the bag is a really good size for my frame. I'd tried totes, briefs, messenger bags, but they
either didn't have enough structure or were too bulky or didn't have good pocket configuration or didn't have a shoulder strap. Gator is a
great bag for my commuting needs and I'm looking forward to using it for other applications.
By Mike, Jackson's Hole, December 3, 2009
I have a Metro which I use for trips where I have to carry both large laptop and extensive written materials. I wanted a smaller bag to limit carryon weight, but needed to fit a Dell E4300, which measures 12.2 x 8.6" - and this is the perfect fit. As others have mentioned, its measured size is deceptive and the capacity is greater than expected. I carry the laptop, power supply (which fits nicely in one of the water bottle pockets - no umbrellas in Wyoming - and I use a Li'l Roy inside the main compartment as a compressible organizer/declutter bag for chargers and other electronic stuff, with significant room to spare. The built-in foam padding on bottom and sides is just enough for peace of mind as long as you're not careless. Great bag.
By Walter Sereth, Los Angeles, CA, November 28, 2009
Bought the Gator bag to carry my clarinet (in its case) and related items, but it proved too snugl to do the job. However, it's now holding 'Gertrude", our Garmin c340, for which it works beautifully.
The Gator Bag is beautifully made (as usual), and should last at least as long as we do.
By Anna G, Oklahoma, November 28, 2009
Wow! $105 is a steal for this bag. I'm currently using it as a diaper bag for my 2 month old. It fits everything: cloth diapers, diaper covers, wipes, extra clothes, pacifiers, a thick changing pad...and I can organize all of my belongings (keys, wallet, lotion, phone and other essentials) in the outer pockets for easy access. Because the Gator is padded it doesn't collapse on me when I take out items to change the baby or pack up (essential when you only have one free hand). I stash snack bars and a Klean Kanteen in the side water bottle pockets. I would never want to spend money on one of those bulky plastic diaper bags I see other moms with. This bag is going to last me forever, and will be great for travel once the little one has grown. Seriously, this bag is amazing. My husband loves using it too. We're just looking for excuses to buy more Red Oxx bags these days!
By Don Koue, Oakland CA, October 27, 2009
The Gator is a wonderful utility bag. It truly holds an amazing amount of stuff. However, therein lies a slight problem: if you don't have a lot of stuff, it can seem a bit bulky. I wish there was a built in way to compress the bottom, closed by a zipper or Velcro, so that I could slim it down when I don't need all that space. It has a fold and can compress, but doesn't want to. My own solution is to use a bungee cord to compress it, but it would better if something was built in.
