Now you can thumb your nose at those nosy TSA agents with the world's most flight-friendly travel bag. The Red Oxx Big Bull Roll-up is a new dimension in carry-on legal bags. When it's your turn to open your bag at the checkpoint, simply unbuckle the two Fastex buckles and roll it open. (You'll probably still have to show your liquids bag).
The six mesh pockets allow inspection of your belongings without having to unpack. Airline travelers aren't the only ones who will fall in love with this bag. It's the quintessential multipurpose bag.
This roll-up bag is versatility defined. Imagine a bag that:
The Red Oxx Thundering Herd meet every quarter to team up and dream up a new prototype bag. Said Big Bull Roll-up creator Sam, "When we were first asked to design a bag, I thought 'Oh dear, I am not creative'. I decided I wanted to make something useful, a tool roll that was also multipurpose using materials we had."
Sam is a fan of off-roading. She and her friends found themselves in the not unusual situation of playing mechanic in the middle of nowhere. Said Sam, "Late last year, I was in Moab off road four-wheeling for vacation when my friend Gary broke his drive shaft on the trail in Pritchett Canyon. He had to dump his entire tool bag out at least three times. I thought 'How annoying! Wouldn’t it be nice if you could lay all your tools out with minimum effort, like the wrench sets in one place, screwdrivers or parts in another, when you had to fix something on the trail?'"
The herd voted on their favorite prototypes for further development, the Big Bull Roll-up winning top favor. In stepped our Lead Product Bag Designer Lacy.
WHY SIX POCKETS... IN THREE SIZES?
Said Lacy, "Originally it had just four long pockets for storing tools. Company President Perry Jones and I decided it would be nice to have a couple smaller pockets so you’re not fishing through the big pockets searching for small items."
WHY BALLISTIC NYLON?
Perry chose proven tough Black Ballistic Nylon fabric for the bag's outer lining was since it’s going to get thrown around and laid down in dirt and muck. Red Oxx has experienced great success using this heavy-weight fabric on our Railroad product line. It was originally developed for flak jackets during WWII, so it makes for a tough and reliable, yet flexible bag material.
Said Lacy, "I helped Sam by suggesting inserting a couple of fiberglass rods under the carry handle. This keeps the bag from buckling when rolled up while you’re carrying it."
POCKET DESIGN SMARTS
The large heavy-duty YKK #10 zippers smartly open halfway down the sides of the pockets. This makes for easier stuffing and you don't have to worry about your belongings or tools falling out when the bag is hung up. Each pocket is also double-reinforced on its edges and corners when sewed on. The first layer of edging goes on before the pocket is sewn on. Then they get edged again. This gives added strength to the edges of the mesh when you put heavy items in the pocket, like wrenches and other metal tools.
The adjustable 1 1/2 inch Fastex buckles allow you to cinch down the bag, reducing its overall circumference. The bag rolls open flat when unclipped due to the Hypur-cel foam internal padding.
The midsize pockets will perfectly fit our Armadilla Small Packing Cube. The Hedgehog Extra Small Packing Cube tucks neatly into the smallest pockets and the longer pockets will hold Meerkat Long Packing Tube Cubes with wiggle-room to spare.
DOUBLE STITCHED AND BOUND EDGES
The Big Bull Roll-up is edged with Ruck webbing around the outside. Ruck webbing for edging was selected because: 1. It matches the webbing on the inside. 2. It has a tighter weave, which makes it less likely to snag and wear out. 3. Lacy thinks it looks cool.

Prototype Tester Product Review : "This bag was awesome. I got about every bag Red Oxx makes. But this one is rad. Me and my girlfriend got to test it when we took it to Iceland this winter ... it made going through the airport easy. The (TSA) agents thought it was a pretty cool bag 'cause they could see everything. It's now the only bag I use for travel. And I travel a lot." ~ Koombie
The guys over at Gear Junkie picked up a Big Bull Roll-up. Here's some of what they said about the bag:
..."you get a lifetime warranty, solid design, and construction that I’ve seen first-hand will last." "In the end, the Big Bull Roll-Up is a neat idea" "...works as advertised, a one-of-a-kind rugged, rollable compartmentalized duffel. There are a lot of potential applications, particularly for those who manage lots of small items while working or camping out of a vehicle."
Step into the future of the multipurpose carry-on bag with the Red Oxx Big Bull Roll-up, destined to become the "best all-round bag in the world."
