I just received this bag and love the size. It is perfect for storing in my vehicle and keeping the glove box organized. In fact, I can see ordering a few more to use as organizers around the home and workshop as well as in a larger bag for traveling.
Why only 4 stars? Because 4 1/2 isn't an option...What I would change to make it 5 stars would be to use a zipper on one or perhaps both of the inside pockets. The snap does not allow secure storage of little things that will fall into the main compartment if the bag is turned over. I am also concerned about how the mesh will hold up without reinforcement behind the snap. I can see the snap tearing through the mesh eventually. Those concerns are not enough to keep me from ordering more of these bags but it would be neat to see a Lil Roy 2.0 someday. Thanks Red Oxx.

I've had my Lil Roy for a few months and I've yet to leave on a trip without it. Lil Roy has become my go-to seat bag for air travel. I load it up with a book, iPad mini, headphones, passport, phone, etc and toss it in my backpack, taking it out as I board the plane and stash my pack for the trip. I recently gifted a half dozen to friends, who have no doubt found them as useful as I have. The applications for a sturdy organizer bag this size are endless, and the quality, as expected from Red Oxx, is superb. I bought mine in Safari and it's a great signature color. The Roy has been a go-to Christmas gift in years past, and it's a very affordable, and solid introduction to others about Red Oxx products. My Lil Roy just returned from two weeks in Spain, and it made long flights and gear organization a pleasure.

I have several redox bags and love them all. I ordered the Lil Roy prior to entering the hospital for open heart surgery. Lil Roy worked great for holding my iPad, iPhone and charger in one convenient place. I am home now and still using it to keep everything near by.

Bought four of these in different colors. One for daily use in my backback/Gator, one as a travel cube, one for my wife and one for our friend.
I keep my wallet, coins, mints, iPod Touch, charger & cables in one. Haven't gone on any trips yet, but will use one place of a zippered mesh bag I bought at a 100 Yen store in Japan. My wife really likes hers and uses it daily.
Still amazed that it's made in the U.S. Good that some things are still made here.
This is our third Red Oxx product, and they've all been great!
Super-useful little organizer
By Lisa, California, July 4, 2013
For the last seven months or so, I've led a ridiculously peripatetic life, traveling frequently and rarely being in the same place longer than a month or so. This has required a lot of flexibility in how and what I pack, and a need to be increasingly organized so I don't blow a gasket not being able to easily find what I need. The Lil' Roy is a great odds-and-ends carryall.
I use mine for electronics adaptors/cables, pocketknives, flashlights and whatever else I don't want loose in my bags or cluttering up my space. It's great to keep essentials for a long flight, for example, inside your carryon. And as with all RedOxx gear, you'll never have to worry about a torn seam or broken zipper.
By Shelley, Hudson Valley, NY, June 16, 2013
My husband stole the first Lil Roy I bought (for his wires and headphones). I bought another (flashy red), used it for underwear, nylon clothesline, viscous towel, and laundry detergent...and it still wasn't bulked up. So well-made, and we love the Red Oxx team -- they're terrific. Get organized with Lil Roy!
By Bob, canada, May 5, 2013
Only improvement I would ask for is more 'belly' in the side mesh pockets, similiar to those in the Tri fold shave kit. That would give me more options when filling the bag. Otherwise, it was great

I was looking for a bag to use in carrying my lunch to work. I discovered that the one I had been using was not US made. I wasn't sure this would work but it has been great. It isn't insulated but we have refrigerators at our office, so all I have to do is get it from home to work. It is a very well made bag and I am sure has a number of other uses. Based on this experience, I am going to check out this company's larger bags for my computer and as luggage. I encourage you to buy USA. There are a lot of companies out there; you just need to take the time to look.

Purchased my Lil Roy to be my airplane seat back bag. Carry's my Kindle, earbuds, and some snacks. Does this job wonderfully. I just pull it out of my main bag as I'm putting it into the over head bin. The long handles make this very easy to find and pull out of a deep seat back pocket.
By Donald M., Pacific NW, March 28, 2013
As everyone says, it's a great bag for holding just about everything. There are now 4 in our household, after two were "permanently borrowed" by my wife. Holds your electronic's "wires", small items, papers, keys, pills, glasses, ...you name it. Very good as a bag-in-a-bag. And super as an "in-seat" bag for the stuff you use onboard an aircraft.
One consideration...if you use it for little "stuff", get a bright color fabric. If you buy a black or navy or the like, it can be "dark" inside. With a yellow or red or coal, you have contrast to pick out items visually and not have to resort to feel. Just a thought, as my first one was in Midnight and the rest have been "brighter".
Can never have enough bags
By Bill , Park City, Utah, March 28, 2013
Lil Roy is absolutely perfect for collecting all those small gadgets previously rattling about in various compartments in the Adventure Truck. Plan to add a few more - can never have too many bags.
By Kyle, Cheyenne, Wy, March 28, 2013
Great lil' bag. Heavy duty, great quality. I bought this to carry my lunch in. I ride a motorcycle to work & this bag fits in my saddle bags perfectly. It is a little bigger than I thought based on the measurements given. All around great product & I expect many years of general purpose use. Thanks Red Oxx!
By Matt, PA, February 28, 2013
I have several of these bags and use them for electronics and camera accessories. I not only travel with them but just have things stored so I have a ready "grab and go bag." Very happy with the quality!
By David C., Alabama, February 11, 2013
This is a great little bag. I had bought one for use in my overnight trips that I mke frequently. I have since bought two more as they are very versitile and help to keep everything organized while on the road.
By Mark, Massachusetts, January 24, 2013
Was not sure exactly how I was going to utilize this bag - turns out it is perfect for use in my car, holding all the GPS gear - pad, stand, cord and device. I also use it to carry the device while traveling. Very strong and durable - could be very useful for other items as well.
By Theresa C, middle TN, January 6, 2013
Gave this as a Christmas gift and the recipient was very pleased. She travels for business and was excited with all the possibilities for use. She said the size was perfect for her toiletries.
By Swims with Fish, an island in the Caribbean, December 25, 2012
I love this sturdy little bag. I have used it on a trip to stow small loose items. Used it for a toiletry bag upon arrival. Doubles as my camera bag when needed. And have used it as my toiletry kit when showering at the marina after a day of diving.
Love the little side pockets that are secured with snaps and the sturdy zipper that opens completely. I can hang it on the hook on the back of the shower door at the marina and with a little planning, nothing falls out.
It's the right size to fit perfectly in the center compartment of my Air Boss. It's very well made. Who wouldn't love this little bag for whatever your need?
By Christian, China, December 13, 2012
I use this bag for all my smalll hunting goodies. Very well made and great quality!
It fits well into my PR5 side pockets. Great Stuff, hope for more cool gear!
By Nick, Kansas City, MO, November 29, 2012
I purchased the Lil Roy to accompany my Air Boss to keep my electronics organized (laptop charger, phone charger, headphones, Bluetooth headset, Zagg Spark, mouse, etc). Everything fit with plenty of room to spare.
I was very surprised by the amount of space it provided. I plan to order a second to carry my toiletries. The 3 inch width is perfect for the center compartment of the Air Boss and I'll be able to stack two on top of each other. The only knock would be the handles seem a little long for the size of the bag itself, but that's really personal preference.
By Rod, Kentucky, November 28, 2012
When my Little Roy first arrived I was surprised by how small it was. I expected something a little bit bigger. I actually thought it was too small and I wouldn't have much use for it. Then I tried it and was surprised how well it works for so many things.
I carry a RedOxx CPA daily with my laptop. And now with the Little Roy I have a great way to keep things together. I keep my Amazon Kindle, a notebook, some business cards, power cords for my ipod, kindle, and phone. Using the LR inside the CPS keeps things organized.
Recently I attended a conference and didn't really want to lug my laptop around. The Little Roy worked perfectly. It already had most of what I needed in it.
Works great inside the AirBoss too. When traveling I use it to store everything I need at my seat while the AirBoss is in the overhead compartment. It's easy to grab before stowing the AirBoss for the flight. When I land, I simple slide the LR back inside the center compartment of the AirBoss and I'm a One Bag traveler.
Plan on getting more of these bags to use a packing cubes, quick out the door bags, and one for under the seat of my pickup.

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 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.
