Boxcar Bags and Beer Battered Walleyear

Railroading 5 days of hunting & fishing gear? No problemo!

Receiving a gift of a Red Oxx Flying Boxcar Bag is like having your fishing guide make you beer battered walleye for breakfast in bed. Lucky Bob Meier can nearly brag about both. Let’s check in!

Hey Jim,
Last year I received the Flying Boxcar Duffel Bag as a gift. I can tell you I’ve been extremely impressed with the amount of hunting or fishing gear I can easily pack into it. From deer hunting camp in the fall to my annual fly fishing trip, this "Expedition" Bag it does it all. Can you believe that this spring I packed five days worth of fishing gear plus get my rain gear into it? This is one rugged travel bag! All aspects of the Boxcar show the high degree of craftsmanship you put into your gear.

I used it to travel to Trout Lake in Northwest Ontario for a fantastic fishing trip. We chartered a Cessna Beaver Float plane from Rusty Meyers Flying Service in Fort Frances Ontario. Those boys know how to guide. Except that I almost lost my Boxcar Bag to the pilot after got his hands on it and saw first-hand the quality. The best part of that fishing trip was eating our guides home made beer battered walleye. I can’t wait to get another Red Oxx travel bag. I just need an excuse to buy one! Maybe I need to plan another hunting trip?

Best,
Bob Meier

Alright Bob! Man are we always glad to hear about our bags going the distance. That’s the whole point of our design philosophy. One Bag, one memorable trip. Anything else is just, well… extra baggage?
