Carry-on! On your back.

Our Red Oxx travelers it awesome! Imagine, a convertible hybrid backpack and carry-on travel bag in one.

Your idea of carry-on perfection? The Sky Train meets your desire for hands-free, easy-on, easy-off boarding of planes or trains. Specially designed for the leisure traveler going to Europe or beyond. Keeps you moving. No waiting for late or lost luggage--it's with you all the way. A bag built for mobility. Once your Sky Train is on, you're gone!

In 2007 Red Oxx teamed up again with web author and travel expert Doug Dyment of fame to develop this carry-on backpack travel bag. Doug called it the "quintessential dual-purpose bag". Think flexible-- this mobile carry-on bag can be carried five different ways:

1. Carry like a suitcase using the Euro handle on the side.
2. Vertically using the Euro handle on the top of the bag.
3. Over your shoulder like a messenger bag using the Claw Shoulder Strap.
4. Cross body, carried like a messenger bag, again using the Claw Shoulder Strap.
5. Or pull out the retractable backpack straps from the smugglers pocket and travel in hands-free comfort.

The grab loop Euro handles on the sides also help stowing the bag in the overhead bin. Fits continental airline luggage boarding size restriction box and most international ones, too. Includes an adjustable and removeable sternum chest strap.

The Sky Train Carry-on features two main interior compartments and one full-length outside zippered flat pocket. The main compartment tie downs cinch down to the closed cell Volara foam, securing your clothing. These tie downs help keep your slacks and dress shirts wrinkle-free until you can hang them up in the hotel. Easily holds three pairs of slacks and three blouses with room leftover for a light jacket.

The secondary compartment has a foam stay and a small pocket for stashing personal items (9" x 12") and is spacious enough to hold your Toiletries, shoes, or workout gear... The rigid sewn-in Volara foam padding protects your belongings, but is still flexible enough to shove into a cramped overhead bin.

Follow this link to learn Doug's bundle wrapping technique. Fit more in your Sky Train airline carry-on bag. Thanks to, here's a handy printable PDF Sky Train Packing Diagram. It covers how to "bundle wrap" for the Sky Train, your ideal backpack hybrid convertible travel bag. Or watch the packing video in the videos tab where professional travel guide Kasey Austin of Austin Adventures demonstrates some of her awesome packing tips.

Don't like bundle wrapping? Build you own custom Red Oxx Packing Cubes Kit. Our made in Montana cubes are designed to work in conjunction with the Sky Train. Ladies, check out the Meerkat Packing Tube, a tube cube sized just right for hair care products.


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 bag, Sky Trains are built tough. Starting with the most durable soft textile material available, 1000 weight CORDURA® Brand Nylon, we use super strong UV resistant thread that is double stitched into every seam. Rugged, reliable and tough.

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.

In addition, each exposed fabric edge, such as on a pocket flap, is also bound using a thicker binding material. 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 competitors bags that brag of "binding" their edges.

Each stress point, such as where the handles attach to the bag, 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 practical zipper we can find, 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 imported plastic hardware break in the middle of a busy intersection, airport or other inconvenient locale dumping your precious belongings all over the ground for all the world to see (and steal), 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. Traveling with a Sky Train Convertible Backpack bag, you'll know it won't bust apart and break you down.

 Love my bag!
By Jan, New Jersey, November 22, 2015

I love my forest green Sky Train. I was able to fit in everything for a long weekend. Many positive comments from other travelers. Did not have to check my bag on the plane because it wouldn't fit in the overhead (my husband's plight). Sturdy and dependable. So happy not to have wheels taking up packing space. Keep making your superior product in the USA!
 Sky Train and Kingfisher cubes
By Robert M, Ottawa Ont, Canada, November 19, 2015

Just received my Sky Train with three Kingfisher packing cubes. I decided to do a test pack to see how the bag meets a 2 week packing challenge.

Kingfisher #1: 4 pr of socks, 4 pr of boxer shorts, 2 undershirts.

Kingfisher #2: 3 T shirts and 3 short sleeve collared shirts.

Kingfisher #3: 1 pr long pants, 2 pr shorts, 1 pr swimming trunks.

The 3 cubes are stacked at the bottom of the bag with the longs side (14") oriented with the 13" side of the Sky Train. They fit! Next to the cubes is an Eagle Creek shoe bag containing a pr of size 12 hiking shoes. A 311 bag sits on top. There is room to spare for a couple of more items.

All the clothes fit in the main compartment which leaves the second compartment for my coat and sweater when I clear customs/security. Incidentally, a kingfisher will also fit in the second compartment.

The zippers of the Sky Train easily handle the strain from the sacked packing cubes. It was one of the reasons for choosing Red Oxx. Those zippers require a serious amount of force before they will fail. The bag can handle a massive amount of abuse or over-packing.

I still have more experimentation to do, but I think that this bag will handle anything that I can throw at it.

Great work!
 Just what I needed

1 Bag traveling rocks!
 The Anywhere Bag
By TBird, Oregon, November 13, 2015

After a LOT of research, I chose this bag for a three-week safari in Africa. I could not be more delighted. The size and the well-designed backpack straps made everything from international terminals to econo foreign airlines to shuttle buses a breeze. My favorite feature is the clamshell design that opens flat. I roll my clothes, and this made it easy to find exactly what I wanted without digging through all my items. Just the right number of compartments, too. Of course, I can't say enough about the bomber construction. I can already tell the Sky Train will be traveling with me for many years! Worth every penny!
 If convertible is a must
By Alex Henderson, South Carolina, November 12, 2015

We bought a regular Red Oxx carry on and this convertible. Both have the same great construction. For me the carry on has much better organization than the convertible. If buying again, would probably have bought two regular carry on bags. The regular carry on gets a 5 rating, perfect in almost all respects.
 Good Bag
By Anonymous, Tennessee, November 12, 2015

The bag material and zippers are high quality.

The packing strategy worked for my 4 day trip. I haven't packed for a 10 day trip yet, but I'm thinking it's going to be a stretch to get winter clothing packed for 10 days.

I did get the 4 day pack as carry on with no problem. The backpack shoulder straps really help getting from one terminal to another at ATL and AUS.

So, I'm glad I bought it, just wish it was a little less expensive.
 Great versitile bag
By Darren , Scotland , September 18, 2015

had this bag for just over a week now and it is a great bit of kit and you know it's just quality used it as airline carry on and also used it while in America as a day pack on loads of trips was also good that red oxx shipped to my hotel
 I'm a believer
By Dave, Minnesota, September 15, 2015

I shopped and researched and agonized forever before plunking down the money for this bag. After finishing my first trip with it, two weeks in Croatia, Bosnia and Slovenia, I now consider it one of my most treasured possessions.

At first I was disappointed in the lack of little pockets and loops and hidey holes, but after using it I now understand the beauty in its simplicity. We were constantly on the move and the design of this bag made it very easy to live from.

I carried it with the shoulder strap more than I thought I would. It weighed about 19 pounds and I found it very easy to carry. The shoulder straps do work very well for those long hauls.

The only times I missed wheels were while standing in long lines at the check-in or for immigration at the airport, but for the convenience everywhere else I was very glad to be wheel-free.

You do have to be careful not to overload it, it will swallow an awful lot of stuff.

In short, this is an outstanding product, made in the USA. You will not be disappointed.
 Outstanding! Product & People
By Kirt C., Dayton, OH, July 2, 2015

I purchased in April, have been on several week long trips hopping on aircraft of all sizes, regional jets included. Using overhead bins has not been an issue!!! Follow the packing principles and you will not be disappointed. You may even learn that in the past you wasted so much energy lugging those heavy bags. Not to mention the baggage fees paid to the airlines. Quality workmanship is very evident when evaluating the bag up close.

The people at Red Oxx are even better than the product they produce. Very personable and do not treat their customers as just another number or item sold. Keep it up! I will be buying more products from Red Oxx when the need arises. We are planning a trip abroad in a year or two and the whole family will end up with a Sky Train.
 LOVE my Sky Train!
By Kim K, Boston, MA, May 7, 2015

Love love love this bag! I am determined to travel with only a carry on bag, and to travel light. This bag accomplishes both. In the past month this bag has been on planes, trains, buses and taxis in Boston, Iceland, England, France and Las Vegas. The bag was a dream! Easy to stow, easy to carry, easy to toss into a taxi. I recommend this bag and Red Oxx products to anyone who will listen. I know this is the last bag I'll ever need to buy!

Thanks Red Oxx!!
 Awesome Bag!
By Travis, , May 6, 2015

I recently purchased this for a carry on, as I was wanting to try out the whole one bag for traveling system. When I received it I noticed how well built the bag was and I absolutely loved the look and design! Now to try it out on my first trip. I packed 3 long sleeve button ups, 3 polos, 2 long pants, 3 shorts, 5 T-shirts, socks, underwear, and a pair of sandles. I actually could have packed more in it, but didn't need to. Needless to say I was very impressed and happy I bought this bag!
 Great Bag, Literally!
By Stephan Hollemans, The Netherlands, April 26, 2015

I took the Sky Train on a 23 day trip to Thailand, Cambodia and Vietnam weighing about 7 kilo's ( the weather was hot so I didn't take anything bulky, washing is about 1$ a kilo and done the same day). It was perfect; could take it everywhere; accepted as carry on, boat, train, bike, bus, tuk tuk etc. Very practical and sturdy. The strap is exellent,; never slips always comfy. Would recommend it to everyone!
 Happy Travelling
By Peter Liron, Australia, March 19, 2015

Currently travelling through the USA (from Australia) with my Sky Train. This bag is just as good as my Air Boss with the advantage of the shoulder straps for those extra long walks through large airports. This is a round the world trip and the Sky Train is proving its worth without a doubt. Many thanks again to Red Oxx.
 thailand 1 month
By magnumdi1, saskatoon,canada, January 23, 2015

me and my fiancé just spent a month in Bangkok and on the southern islands of Thailand.(koh tao and phangnan) we each had a sky train.traveling in everything from 777's, small aircraft, ferry boats, small boats right down to trains taxis and scooters. the sky train was accepted as carryon everytime and we had them full.if anything it made us pack smarter and we whipped through airports and train stations with ease never lost our luggage and in a few occassions were called pro travelers. all this thanks to red oxx.
 The Only Bag I'll Use
By Gregg R, Seattle, January 6, 2015

I've have not checked a bag in years, and the Sky Train is the best carry-on I've ever owned. It's flexible, fungible, and impervious. The combination of the backpack straps and the Claw shoulder strap make this bag a cinch to transport (no more ankle-biter roll-aboards), and it fits overhead bins with room to spare. Highly recommended.
 Sky Train Comes Through AGAIN!
By J. P. Sposato, New York, December 13, 2014

I own 2 Sky Trains, 1 Tres Hombres, 1 Gator, 1 Beano 5.5, 1 CPA Brief Case. I typically travel with only a Sky Train and a Gator for up to 2 weeks overseas. I just returned from 4 nights in Prague with 6 nights visiting the Christmas markets in Germany. I was concerned about carrying enough layers as well as clothes to an area that was going to be fairly 'fresh' as far as weather. I typically pack thin underclothing - ExOfficio stuff - but I knew I needed heavier clothing for this trip.

I packed the Gator and the Sky Train, then took the Beano 5.5. PLENTY of room. I packed 4 days worth of clothing in the Sky Train. The balance went in the Beano, which I checked in at the airlines, with toiletries, meds, Kindle, etc., going in the Gator. This way at my destination, I knew that even if the airlines lost the Beano, I'd be able to survive until they got it to me. The good news - it all arrived safely. The better news - after arrival, I put everything that was in the Sky Train into the Beano as well, INCLUDING the Sky Train itself!

As a result, I had everything in 2 bags for my travels and the return trip home. As always, the Sky Train can be packed pretty full, and the backpack straps make carrying it a dream. The Beano held everything I threw at it and then some. I had the security of knowing I'd have at least 4 days of clothing in the Sky Train if the Beano got misplaced by the airlines. Having the Sky Train fitting inside the Beano, and stuffing the Beano with the Sky Train contents, was an added bonus. On my return flight, I simply strolled on the plane with the Gator. Other travelers had other 'name' carry-on bags, and they always looked awkward to carry and like they would explode clothing at any minute. Not any of mine.

I travel overseas at least once a year, for at least 10 - 12 days as a rule. I usually only take the Sky Train and the Gator and have never - NEVER - had a problem (just don't over stuff the Sky Train or you'll exceed most airlines carry-on weight limits).

Never a weak seam, never an uncomfortable 'carry,', and never a lack of space.

I work professionally in travel and know a good deal about luggage, packing, and the ins-and-outs of traveling. I continually recommend the Red Oxx line to clients. It's perfect for carry-on, and perfect if you need to check-in. It's built to take all that you can throw at it and then some.

I wish my car was as well-built as a Red Oxx product! I'm looking forward to another purchase soon, perhaps a larger (maybe 6?) Beano for check-in for my next excursion. Lasts longer and a more fun gift than anything I can imagine. Keep up the good work, Red Oxx.
 My GoTo Bag
By Dave B, Atlanta, GA, November 7, 2014

OK, we all have a favorite bag that we grab for a quick trip or our long distance business commutes (road warriors will understand).

Mine was a B-R rolling carry on I've had for I can't remember how many years. It had been around the world several times over.

But I read some sites on One Bag traveling and decided to try a RedOxx. Couldn't decide which to try so I bought both the Air Boss and the Sky Train.

The Sky Train has now over six months of steady weekly travel and has supported several multi-week trips. I'm not sure when I'm going to need the slightly larger Air Boss, but it's patiently waiting its turn.

This is a great bag, even stuffing into the smallest of commuter overheads.

And arriving at the hotel has never been met by wrinkled clothes...

I still can't believe how much you can stuff into this thing.

I've carried a suit, two extra slacks, four shirts and all the accessories, toiletries, and regular stuff, then still had room for my TRX, office accessories, and a daypack for sightseeing.

Carrying this thing through terminals, across terminals, between terminals, you know the drills, and schlepping it through towns and cities, has NEVER been a problem with the backpack straps. They are wilderness capable, comfortable, and durable.

Like I said, not sure when the Air Boss is going to get a chance given the capacity and easy handling of the Air Train. Maybe I'll just have to arrange a trip with the misses and convince her to pack her stuff in it.

It has taken first chair as my go to bag.
 50 stars
By Brandon, San Diego, November 6, 2014

This bag is exceptional. I have never seen such workmanship in a textile product. I was able to fit 5 pairs of shorts 3 pairs of pants 5 t shirts socks boxers a large North face jacket a pair of size 14 Reebok shoes my sandals toiletries my Big Lebowski sweater. This back rivals that of Marry Poppins herself. Honestly, the best part of my vacation was me just looking forward to the next time i had the pleasure of carrying it.
 5 countries / 16 days
By Renee K, Chicago IL USA, October 21, 2014

I travel for business all the time in US and have it down to a science re: a single carry-on bag. However, planning a personal vacation with 5 girlfriends, covering 5 countries in 16 days, using trains/smaller airlines once in Europe, and with a 40F - 85F temp range, did raise concerns. When I read review & took a look at Red Oxx Sky Train, figured I should give it a try. Very happy that I did! Backpack worked wonderfully. Had no issues with size even given limitations on smaller airlines. Carried it around ever couple days almost without thinking -- very comfortable. Very well constructed. Looking forward to using it on many more trips!
 Hold lots of stuff!
By A, , October 9, 2014

A nice strong bag, love having multiple ways to carry it. It hold a ton of stuff! Awesome being Made in USA

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the Sky Train carry-on legal?
Yes, the Sky Train is designed to be carry-on legal on continental flights and most international ones as well.
What's the best way to pack the Sky Train?
We recommend using our Red Oxx Packing Cubes. They're designed to work with the dimensions of the Sky Train. You can build your own personal custom packing cube kit. Not into cubes? Try the bundle packing method. Watch the packing video under the Videos tab or download the Sky Train Packing Diagram.
What's the difference between the Air Boss and the Sky Train?
There are two principle differences between the Air Boss and the Sky Train: The Sky Train has retractable backpack straps and opens flat lengthwise and has two packing compartments whereas the Air Boss opens flat like a book with three compartments and is carried with the Claw shoulder strap. The Sky Train was also developed with smaller stature travelers in mind.
Will the Sky Train Carry-on fit under the seat in front of me?
Cramming the Sky Train under the seat is not recommended.

Will the Eagle Creek packing cubes fit?
Why bother with cheap imported packing cubes when you can build your own Red Oxx Packing Cubes Custom Kit designed to work in conjunction with your Sky Trian. Or try our Nomad Shave Kit, Lil Roy Gadget Bag or Tri-fold Toiletry bag as packing cubes. You can color co-ordinate them to your preference and they come with useful carry handles. The Tri-fold Toiletry bag is also a brilliant shave kit or makeup organizer due to its three individual zippered mesh pockets and unique fold open flat hanging design.

How many pounds will the Sky Train weigh when packed?
It depends on what you pack. A typical 3-5 day load will weigh about 20-25 pounds.
How many days travel can I fit in the Sky Train?
Most folks can get about 3-5 days with a typical load. Some adventurous types have been able to pack from a week to 10 days! It all depends on how you pack and what you pack.
Where do I pack the laptop?
You can use the back compartment. We recommend that you use a padded neoprene sleeve to secure your laptop.
What's the best way to pack footwear?
Sole to sole to minimize the dirt and placed in either compartment. We recommend placing your shoes in a plastic bag. Or try a Nomad or Meerkat Packing Tube.
Can I change the logo color?
Sure. Simply order your favorite color Logo Patch and sew it on yourself. Red Oxx cannot change the patch colors for you.
Can I order a bag without the logo?
Logo Patches are centered using a hole punch. If you remove the patch, there will be a hole in the bag that could cause a snag. Red Oxx cannot build a bag without a logo as this would disrupt the efficiency of the production line. Feel free to use a permanent marker to color the patches.
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.
Are there any interior pockets?
The Sky Train Hybrid bag has two generous internal compartments and one small internal zippered pocket.
My zipper broke. The teeth have separated. Do I send it in for warranty repair?
No need for warranty repair, try and fix it yourself. Check out this video where CEO Jim Markel shows how easy it is to do it yourself.
Why doesn't the Sky Train come with a waist strap?
The bag was not designed to operate with a waist strap. However, you can use a pair of Luggage Compression Straps to cinch down the bag from the outside. Wrap one strap around the top, about 4-6 inches down, and the second strap further down, about 4-6 inches from the bottom. The top strap, if cinched tighter than the bottom strap, will pull the pack closer to your upper body, relieving excessive weight from the pack on your hips.

Another option is to take a belt, any belt will do, and thread it through the holes in the smuggler's pocket at the base of the bag where the backpack straps attach to the bag. While not a very comfortable way to travel, using a belt this way can also relieve some weight off the hips. The best solution however, is to focus on traveling light and not over pack your Sky Train. Use the internal cinch straps to hold your belongings in place and minimize wrinkles.

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.
