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.

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.

 Quality and craftwork
By Chuck Long, Jr., Richmond, Virginia, October 29, 2007

I had my first opportunity to travel with my Safari Beanos Bags -- from Richmond out to Colorado, around Colorado and then back home. They endured the indifference and abuse of luggage handlers, cab drivers and the like without a whimper or scar. Now, more than ever, I appreciate the thought and design, not to mention quality and craftwork that went into their making.
 
 Small and Mighty
By Tom Capra, , September 23, 2007

I bought the PR4 as a gym bag and find it pulls double duty as an occasional overnight bag when I don't need a lot of heavy, bulky clothing. The bag has plenty of pockets for my gear and toiletries, making it easy to find what I need quickly. Six months later the bag has no signs of wear, which speaks to the quality and workmanship of Red Oxx products!Tom CapraDenver, CO

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the differences in size of the Beano's bags?
The PR4, the smallest of the series and the PR5, a step up in size from the PR4, were designed for legal carry-on travel. The PR5-5 is sized between the PR5 and the largest of the series, the PR6, which was designed for checked bag travel.
 
Is the PR4 carry on legal?
Yes, it was designed to be carry-on legal on most jet airlines.
 
Will the PR4 qualify as a personal item?
The PR4 is designed as more of a smaller carry-on than a personal item. You could try it as a personal item, but we don't guarantee the results.
 
What's the difference between the PR4 and Sun Chaser?
The Sun Chaser has a full length main compartment with extra raised pockets located on the side of the bag, whereas the PR4/5 have a shorter main compartment and the pockets on both ends. The Sun Chaser also features grab handles on the ends and a padded bottom reinforced with ballistic nylon, our toughest.
 
How many days of travel will fit in the PR4?
The PR4 carry-on bag was designed to hold a weekend's worth of clothes.
 
Can I fit my laptop in it?
Most 15 inch or smaller notebooks and tablets should fit in the main compartment.
 
Is the PR4 padded on the bottom?
Our Sun Chaser and Flying Boxcar are padded on the bottom. The PR 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.
 
Are there any interior pockets?
The Safari Beano's series has exterior flat and raised pockets only.
 
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.
