Graduate to minimalism‽
Find traveling peace when less is more.
As Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, the author of 'The Little Prince' once said, "He who would travel happily must travel light." As the smallest in our carry-on safari luggage series, the PR4 is perfect for overnight airline travel, as a gym bag, or a passenger seat companion for overland travel.
PLACES FOR YOU BELONGINGS.
Featuring plenty of exterior pockets for organizing your gear and a cavernous interior compartment, the PR4 Safari Beanos Duffel holds more than you thought possible. Handy spacious end pockets allow easy access to your 'must have' gear, especially useful when stuffing the PR4 under the seat, be it plane, train, or bus. Both pockets zip halfway down their sides for easy access to buried belongings.
A zippered front flat pocket keeps your passport handy. The pass-through panel on the back side is designed for use as a docking sleeve with wheeled luggage. Unzip top and bottom zippers and slip it over the wheeled bag's telescoping carry handle (or leave the bottom zipper closed and it doubles as a second flat exterior pocket).
The spacious center compartment has a unique open flap with twin zippers that allow you to peel away the flap for unhindered access to your belongings. Twin steel turn locks keep the flap secure.
NO SLIP CARRY.
Like most of our duffel bags, the PR4 includes the famous Claw nonslip padded shoulder strap. Attached using heavy-duty 360 degree "claw-like" swivels, this hardware will endure any abuse you can throw at it. Quickly detaches for storage inside in case you use your PR4 carry-on for checked luggage.
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 a carry-on duffel bag, they are built tough. Starting with the most durable soft textile material available, 1000 weight Cordura nylon, we use super strong UV resistant thread that is double stitched into every seam.
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, or gives it a clean finished look if on the outside of the bag. Inside edges typically receive a thinner nylon webbing, whereas outside corner edges that are exposed to wear will have a thicker nylon binding. All of our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in less expensive bags that brag of "binding" their edges.
Each stress point, such as where the handles attach to the PR4, is double box stitched - which is where we get the "double xx" in our name, Red Oxx; a stitching practice we adapted from our time as parachute riggers.
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.
Red Oxx has occasionally been accused of "overdoing" our hardware. But once you've had a cheap piece of plastic hardware break in the middle of a busy intersection, airport or other inconvenient locale dumping your precious belongings all over the ground, having a heavy-duty nickel-plated or stainless steel D ring or attachment swivel that weighs just a little more, or might make a little noise, is a travel companion's confidence builder and peace of mind maker. After all, you want to enjoy your journey as best you can. Why worry about having your bag break down?
USE IT AS A PERSONAL ITEM.
Ladies, if you want to use this on your next flight, stick your purse in this spacious bag's center compartment and use it as your "personal item" in conjunction with your primary carry-on, such as an Air Boss or Sky Train.
For the men out there, fill it to the brim, and travel in the same carry-on manner. Designed for the minimalist traveler out there, the Red Oxx Safari Beanos PR4 is still packed to the gills with overbuilt features that will serve you for a lifetime of travel.

"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.
