Design input from world-class climber Dr. Jean Ellis combined with our parachute-rigging bag-building techniques helped to create for you an expedition bag to take climbing or outfitting gear anywhere.
Proven on all seven continents, you'll thank us a thousand times over for the heavy-duty grab loops on both ends and the tough 1050 weight Ballistic Nylon skid plate on the bottom, stuffed with Neoprene Rubber padding for that extra bit of protection.
Storm flap across the main compartment keeps out whatever Mother Nature sends your way, while two full-length side flat pockets keep your flat necessities like maps, light jackets, etc., accessible.
The Sherpa is popular with snowmobilers as well as the sheep hunting crowd because you can cram it full of camp equipment and bulky clothing, yet still easily carry the bag backpack style over treacherous terrain.
One of the hurdles with an outfitter's expedition duffel bag this big is carrying it once you've filled it up. The answer? Retractable padded backpack straps hidden inside a false bottom "smuggler's pocket".
Six different and convenient methods to carry the Sherpa Jr.
- Carry it by the top handle.
- Carry it by both end handles.
- Carry it with one end handle.
- Carry it on your back with the retractable backpack straps.
- Carry it with The Claw Nonslip Shoulder Strap.
- Hire a real sherpa to carry it for you.
TOUGH AS NAILS.
Heavy-duty features abound: Dual full wraparound 2" wide nylon webbing compression straps are stitched onto the bag; your bottom will never tear out. The carry handles also fully wrap around the bag, effectively doubling up the no rip carry strength. Overbuilt 360 degree swivel "The Claw" Shoulder Strap will never rip loose. Nickel plated hardware more suited to a tank than an outfitter's bag!
Rectangular shape means you can really stuff this bag to the hilt. The Sherpa Jr. Outfitters Expedition Duffel Bag is sized to fit into the luggage hatch of a puddle jumper, such as a Cessna 182, the most common remote wilderness access aircraft. Now you know why Red Oxx calls it a Sherpa!
Sherpa Jr. Trivia: named after Eurasian baggage handlers and porters, commonly used on mountain climbing treks because of their high altitude tenacity and vigor.

Is the Sherpa carry-on legal?
Sure, if there's nothing packed in it. This bag is for checked travel only. It was designed to fit in the cargo of "puddle jumper" transport airplanes.
Where are the backpack straps located?
The retractable straps are located in a hidden zippered "smugglers" pocket on the bottom of the bag.
What are the D-Rings for?
To attach the backpack straps on their clip-on snap hook end.
Are there any internal pockets?
The Sherpa Jr. features only one large main compartment and two large exterior flat pockets.
How many days of travel will fit in the Sherpa?
This is an expedition sized bag. Going somewhere for awhile? This is your bag. Properly packed one could live out of a Sherpa Jr. for a few weeks.
What's the average weight when full?
Depends what you pack in it. A few weeks of hunting gear for example, could weigh up to a hundred pounds.
Does it come with a waist belt?
Since the Sherpa is a frameless soft sided bag, a waist belt would not work.
Why does the Sherpa have a storm flap over the zippers and your other bags don't?
The Sherpa was designed with rugged outdoor use in mind. A storm flap helps make the bag more water resistant.
How do the compression straps work?
They encompass the bag's exterior helping to keep your gear in place through, you guessed it, compression.
What's the difference between the Sherpa, PR6 and the Big Oxx?
The Sherpa is a large capacity (though not as large as the Big Oxx) outfitter's bag equipped with one main compartment as opposed to the PR6 which has a large center compartment and two end compartments.
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.
Will a sleeping bag fit inside the Sherpa?
Absolutely, it will even fit a large Butler Sleeping Bag.
Are there any interior pockets?
The Sherpa Jr. has only one large main compartment and two exterior flat pockets.
My zipper broke. The teeth have separated. Do I send it in for warranty repair?
No need for warranty repair, fix it yourself. Check out this video where CEO Jim Markel shows how easy it is to do it yourself.
How do I use or store my bag to keep its original padded shape and prevent it from slouching?
When using your bag, pack heavy items in the bottom of the bag. When storing your bag, removed any items and press flat. You can stack your bags in your closet in this manner or better yet, use a compression strap (sold separately) to hang your bag.
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.
