At one time, both my wife and I had a travel basket and we were happy. Then, someplace along our travels, my wife's basket disappeared. It mysteriously evaporated; we had no idea where. After that when we traveled, I would spot my wife looking covetously at my travel basket. So, for a recent trip to Spain with her college girlfriends, I bought her another. One of her first comments upon her return expressed her delight for once again having a travel basket. At the end of a day, it is just so useful for collecting pocket items, jewelry, watches, change, and so on. The travel basket is one of those travel items that initially seems superfluous but soon becomes one of the most useful items in your bag.

Love this basket - as well as the larger travel tray. It's everything that RedOxx says. Another application that usually causes me to pack two - many hotel desks are covered with glass or the like - which prevents the use of optical mice. Leave the travel tray / basket flat, and, voila - a mouse pad. Can never have enough of these.

I originally thought this was a superfluous item that didn't fit with a "travel light" mindset. But after my travel companion brought one on a trip, I converted. The Travel Basket has two uses--the stated use of keeping your items gathered up in lodgings while you travel; it is surprisingly reassuring to know your electronics and small items are all gathered in one spot and aren't going to fall onto the floor or behind a nightstand. The second use is as padding in a lightweight purse--let me explain. When traveling, I usually carry my Sky Train and a Longchamp Le Pliage purse--these are lightweight but stylish purses. I also carry a DSLR camera with an expensive lens, and carry it in my Longchamp (camera bags take up too much room). I have a bad habit of tossing my purse on the ground when traveling, especially in airports, and the Longchamp has zero cushioning. . . So now when I travel, I line the bottom of my Longchamp purse with the Travel Basket (unsnapped) for extra cushioning. When in the hotel room, I slide it out to use for its intended purpose. I highly recommend this product for its versatility. I prefer the bright yellow color--you'll never walk off and forget it in a hotel room!

Great way to organize and remember all your pocket items. The bright yellow color insures you remember all your stuff and that you pack your valet before you hit the road.

Bought this alongside an Air Boss, sort of on a whim. I'm pretty organized and like to keep the contents of my pockets - loose change, pen, comb, keys - together so that I can get up, slip on my clothes, and be ready to go. What the Red Oxx travel basket offers is simply a permanent solution for those who want to bring the convenience of their at-home "landing pad" with them. If you're already in the market for a Red Oxx bag (i.e. have the money), and you have similar routines, I don't see a reason not to invest. Folds flat and comes in lots of colors so that it feels like a natural extension of your Red Oxx bag.

Simple things are often the best. Simple form, simple function. Nifty. Lightwieght. Clip together, put your "stuff" in it. Done. I like it. It works.

Waited much too long to get this product. Simple, elegant (in my favorite color Bordeaux) and absolutely useful. Use it at home and every time I leave home. AJ

Well built as all Red Oxx products. After purchasing the basket, I had used it nightly beside my bed and for a few weekend trips. I got the Saffron as it practically glows in the dark! Especially for weekend trips, I was always concerned about leaving something behind or knocking it on the floor and not noticing. Then I saw the Travel Basket!! What a great idea!! I must admit I was a bit disappointed at the size when it arrived but I decided to try it out anyway.
At home the size isn't a problem but on the road, I feel it is way too small. I actually bought three of them--one for me, my wife and a friend who was traveling with us for a month in Ireland. After using it for a month of travel, I have definitely confirmed it is too small for my liking. By the time you put a passport, wallet, keys, rings, watch, glasses in it, it is more than full. No additional room for a money belt or any other "smalls" you may be carrying. Please Red Oxx--make a bigger version! Obviously, it won't take up much more space in luggage, but will give more space for all that stuff we carry when traveling. Bottom line: It is a well made product, great idea--but for my purposes not big enough. BTW--I would have still given it a 4.5 if I could.

Cool little item! Built like it was a $300 bag and not just a little valet. Very impressed! Expect more orders from me soon!
By Chuckl, Miami, Florida USA, January 24, 2014
I purchased 8 of these as Christmas gifts for myself, friends and family.
More than just the uses described, this "basket" has no hard surfaces (other than the snaps) so they can be used for small part retention when working on a bench, automobile or aircraft. (I use my on my airplane since there is no magnetic components to interfere with the compass or electronic navigation systems.)
It has also been handy as a travel "wrap" for small, breakable items in my Red Oxx "Railroad Grip." Soft, padded construction allows one to wrap it around small bottles or delicate items that might get bumped around in transit.
According to the Red Oxx website, they are made from scrap cuttings from other bag assembly, so it's also good for keeping more trash out of the waste stream.
Excellent item all around (and they come in some really great colors.)

This is a good product. But unfortunately I just didn't end up needing it as much as I thought I would. When I travel, I have hotel key, wallet, that's about it (no keys). This would fit just as easily on nightstand and not fall off. I still bring it with me b/c it makes me feel cool, but I can't say I need it.
By Corey, Calgary, AB, January 16, 2014
By far my favorite travel accessory! It weighs next to nothing and is ideal for keeping cuff links, tie clips, watches, glasses, etc. organized while on the road.

Purchased this on a whim along with a Sky Train bag. I say whim because I didn't know what I was missing until after I first used it on a trip. To be clear, I've never lost or left behind any personal items during travel. What the basket did was keep all of my personal items in one place. On mornings I needed to dash out the door, it was easier to fill my pockets/day bag with everything in the basket and vice versa upon my return. Here's a sample of what I stored in the basket: wallet, tissue pack, gum, breath strips, lip balm, eye drops, vitamin pill box, ear buds & mobile phone. Plus the fact it folds flat made it very easy to pack into my Sky Train. I will never travel again without it.
By Luis, Texas, October 24, 2013
Great piece of gear. I've used this at the hunting camp to hold small items and at the range for adjustment tools. And, it does not take up much space in my travel bag. Also, superb quality and I know I'll get years of use. Thanks for a great product.
By Benjamin, Boston, MA, July 29, 2013
My review title is not only speaking to the product itself, but rather how RedOxx has the uncanny ability to think of things that not traveler would ever realize he needed. I have a unique talent for misplacing just about anything. I'll leave the house and forget my phone, wallet, etc. as everything is spread all over the place. I contantly lose hotel keys and pens when I'm traveling for work. But now take this thing everywhere whether it be to work in my RedOxx CPA briefcase or on the road in my Air Boss or Sun Chaser. It just keeps everything in one place. Nothing slides behind a dresser, nothing gets lost in the hotel room.
I would be remiss if I did not mention RedOxx perfect design. This thing is so well constructed that I could hang from the ceiling by it. It's padded so my phone won't slam through it onto a hard surface. And then there are the snaps. The fact that this company thought of making this item more compact? You don't see that sort of prescience much from a company. This product is simplicity and utility at their finest. Don't leave the house without it. Seriously.

I loved this tray so much that I bought one for my brother. He loved it so much he is going to buy one for his wife. The list goes on.
By Randi McCorquodale, CANADA, April 11, 2013
At first I was skeptical and thought that it would be a bit much as I really try to travel light. I was pleasantly surprised at how I relied on having this handy flat packing travel basket. We all need somewhere to put all the little things, room key, eye glasses, (earplugs :-), I will always take this with me, it took very little room and packs away nicely.

I purchased this as part of a larger luggage order. I had read about how handy this was for keeping items organized in a hotel room. Used this on my last trip, and they were right! It's something that I didn't even know I had a need for until I tried it out. Love that it unsnaps and becomes perfectly flat, fits anywhere in my new luggage. Snap it up and set it on the hotel dresser. Keys, wallet, watch, change, etc.. All make it in here every night and I know exactly where to find them in the morning. This will be coming with me on all my trips now. I may even have to pick one up for home use, it's that handy.
By Mark, Massachusetts, January 24, 2013
A simple idea that is great while traveling. I cannot recall how many times I "misplaced" things in the room - car keys, room keys, change, wallet, glasses. This easy-to-pack item, with bright colors, makes it easy to keep track of all the necessary goodies. Very nicely made.
By Theresa C, middle TN, January 6, 2013
We have had one of these for several years and I bought 2 to give for Christmas. Both recipients were very pleased with this gift and impressed with the quality. As both were female, I think that their husbands will be trying to use them as well.
