One simple reason to get this:
If you have ever left your cell phone, keys, digital camera or money in a room while travelling, this tray will be your best friend.
It flattens out for travel and just like Red Ox bags, the bright inner liner makes things really easy to find, go with the saffron and you will never forgot anything you need again.

I used this product recently while travelling in northern Michigan. Its a great organizer for the odds and ends that often get misplaced when on vacation - keys, wallet, change, motel ID card, keys, etc. Now that I'm back home I'm still using it on my bureau.

On my first trip I found out how convenient this product is at holding keys, money, wallet, etc.

I have a similar item for use at my house and wanted another one for traveling. I always end up mis-placing something and waste time hunting for it.
This will be a great addition to my travel bag and I plan to use it regularly.
Could be a little cheaper, but as long as it is good quality, I am willing to pay for it.

I'm not a one-bagger or a ultra-lightweight traveler, but I try to cut down on non-essentials (and usually fail). That said, this is definitely a non-essential. I thought it was a waste of $20, I mean, my stuff is usually all over the hotel desk and nightstand, but I never lost anything. So I got one, thinking I'll check it out. I used it for the hotel desk, then I wished I had it for the nightstand. So I switched... and then I wished I had another for the desk... so I ordered another one! Two fit nicely in the big zippered pocket in the Air Boss and the Saffron color is nice and visible in the room. Never forgot anything before, but I sure won't now! I, too, wish it were just a little bit bigger, but that just means I'll bring more stuff to put it in...

A simple, well-made life saver. No more lost keys, forgotten phones, etc. This company really makes excellent, tough stuff.
By Corey, Pittsburgh, April 22, 2010
Just a great idea that I had never thought of. To be able to put car keys, hotel key, wallet, sunglasses, phone, change, etc all in one place while traveling puts your mind at ease of not forgetting anything.. My only request is that it wasn't as bulky/padded. Takes up more room in my air boss than necessary. Overall, great idea, I would recommend to anyone that travels at all.

cannot tell you how many times i have had one of those those panicked moments wondering where rings, a wallet, keys or cuff links were last placed. i am notorious for needing habits for keeping organized. i park on the same section of the airport, typically opt for a similar location on planes, and use aids like a travel basket. red oxx has a knack for quality and overengineering, but in a positive way. wish it were an inch bigger, but would gladly buy again. the trade off is it packs extremely well in my beloved air boss! this is one of those luxuries you do not realize the value until you have one. now if i could just stop confusing last week's hotel room number with this weeks...

I'm lining up with all the rest ordering this one in Saffron color. Very clever little thing to empty pockets into in the hotel room and still remember to bring home again!
By Terry Ogg, Liverpool, December 10, 2009
I can endorse what other reviewers have said. The travel basket is a very simple idea carried out to perfection. I have had it just a couple of weeks but I have already used it on 2 trips. Like a previous reviewer, I too ordered mine in saffron so I wouldn't miss it when checking out of my room. It keeps together all of the stuff that would otherwise be strewn over the room desk. It works, simple as that. And, being a Red Oxx product, it is well built with quality materials.

I resisted this one for a while until I left some items in the top drawer of a bedside table at a motel. It's the only piece I own from Redoxx that is not in the Safari color because I wanted something bright so I wouldn't miss it at checkout. I holds the contents of my pockets + my iPhone and now I never forget. This is a simple, functional piece of gear. Like all Redoxx products, you could run a tank over it and the treads on the tank would break.

Who would have thought something so simple would be such a life saver? Traveling or not, this key tray has kept me sane and organized. Roll in the hotel room, out comes my travel basket, in it go my keys, wallet, cell phone, and peace of mind. I'll always know right where to find them. I even used it when we recently camped out. Nice to keep my glasses and phone off the dirty and moist tent floor. If Red Oxx keeps coming up with clever creations like this Key Tray, I'll have to come up with more excuses to travel. Oh, yeah, maybe that's the point!
By GaylM, Ontario, Canada, May 27, 2009
I am amazed at how such a small item is so handy. I'm notorious for putting things everywhere when I travel and this has made my stays for the last few months much more stress-free, as I don't end up worrying about where all my 'stuff' went. It never leaves my travel bag (soon to be a skytrain if I have my way) until it's the first thing I pull out upon my arrival.
By Sarah, Los Angeles, March 26, 2009
I use a couple of "decorative" ceramic plates/bowls at home to hold knick knacks - earrings, watch, non-winning lottery ticket, etc. But when I travel, all that stuff gets dumped on whatever handy surface is around - counter top, dresser top, bag top. Something always gets lost. So this is pretty darn handy.
What I didn't expect was that it is also therapeutic: My order from Red Oxx was delivered to my office, and, having the patience of a 5-year-old at Christmas, I opened up everything. My co-workers bounced in with "Whatcha got?" expressions, and, having the Saffron-colored travel basket in plain sight, they started playing with it. SNAP, snap, SNAP, snap, SNAP! I can attest to the workmanship, since we have been playing with the darn snaps for a couple of hours now. It works better than those stress squeezy thingies. Sort of like popping bubble wrap. (Between the snaps, the Air Boss, and the Monkey's Fists, the candy dish is being ignored. Not only do Red Oxx products help you organize life and travel better, they fight obesity!!)
Don't just buy one... get a few. I think I'm going to get another one for my car for use during rush-hour traffic road rage.

I picked this up with one of my orders and thought I'd use it on trips. I'm always looking for a routine for my keys, wallet, and cell while on trips and with the ability to fold flat this seemed like a good idea. As someone suggested I ordered the bright saffron color thinking it would be easy to spot at night.
I haven't tried it on a trip yet but it's now on my desk and used daily. I have my cell, wallet, keys, watch, and company badge in there. Really great idea and has the rugged look and feel of all the other Red Oxx products I own. My only fear is that I will forget to pack it when it comes time to travel. Very neat product.

If I had a dollar for every time I've misplaced rental car keys... I think we've all been there, looking high and low for a single nondescript key on an equally hard-to-find keyring (or, worse, paper tag!).
Too many days on the road? Too many hotels with different layouts in each one? Too many demands on your time until you stagger into your room, pitch the keys and contents of your pockets, and collapse on the bed? When you wake up it's always 'Where'd I put that?'
Well, this basket is the answer to your endless hunts for items you need Right Now. Make it a habit to ALWAYS put the key(s), the cell, the flash drive, the watch, and all those other odds and ends we all cart around as part of our Road Warrior selves in this basket. Use it at home too - or get two.
Get a Saffron one so you can't lose it even with the lights out. I did! You also won't forget to pack it. Alas, remembering the quickest way to the airport is not part of its duties (but it will hold the map).

My travel basket sits on my kitchen counter and when I get home from work I put everything in it like my keys, phone, mail, etc. so that it's all in one place and I don't ever lose anything. I will also take it on trips for the same purpose!

I spend alot of my time working with companies like Filson, Fishpond, Vaude, and many other quality sporting goods companies and have to say there are not many products as useful as this one at that price point. I appreciate quality and Redoxx has it.Sam WikeBuyer - Retail Company

I've always had the typical little change dish on top of my dresser-it's nothing fancy and it doesn't take up much space, but it barely holds a buck in change,let alone my key chain. The Travel Basket by Red Oxx is the ultimate solution! This lightweight basket has more than enough room for my keys, change, pocketknife, wallet, watch, and more and it's light, compact design make it great for travel, camping, and home use! Great product!

Since I was young I have traveled to many places in the United States with cheaper luggage that looks exactly like everyone else's in the airports or on family road trips, but now that I have been introduced to Red Oxx my luggage will definitely be different from everybody else's. After I used the travel basket at home for my pocket change, cell phone, chapstick, etc... I realized that Jim Markel was right about the sturdiness of his products and the vast assortment of colors - he really has created tremendous products and I will certainly be buying Red Oxx products for my future travels.

The exposed fabric edges on the Travel Basket's rim are bound using a thick binding material. All of our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in competitors valets that brag of "binding" their edges.

The Red Oxx Travel Basket key tray is also a must-have catchall accessory for your office, dorm room, camping tent or home. Simply snap the sides up and you have a padded coin valet for spare change and the like.
For travel convenience, simply unsnap it flat for easy storage in your luggage, it's only 1/4 inch thick. The padding can even protect a treasured item packed in your bag.
