Red Oxx Gear For This School Year

Cool – adjective : calmness, composure, self-control, fashionably attractive or impressive, stylish, chic.

Kids want cool, especially in school. You however, want to save money. You also want to get a quality bag you won’t have to buy again before the school year is even over.

No need to compromise, now you can buy a backpack for life and save hundreds during a lifetime of back to school shopping.

Red Oxx has your student gear essentials covered. From Kindergarten through Graduate School, a Red Oxx Backpack or Rucksack will keep on trucking for many seasons to come. No more "landfill" school bags that fall apart after just a few months. Our rugged school bags are made to withstand the toughest abuse. Around here they’re called "kid proof".

A SCHOOL BACKPACK YOU’LL ONLY HAVE TO BUY ONCE

Start ’em off right with a backpack that’s more than just cute: the K-12 Kat Pack Backpack. Big enough and tough enough to last from day one in Kindergarten all the way to Graduation day and beyond.

The K-12 is designed to carry a ton of books, electronics, and the assorted school supply essentials. Borrowing from our brilliant rectangular design basics that’s incorporated in all our travel bags, the Kat Pack can easily carry up to 20 pounds of school supplies. Perhaps maybe even more than your little tyke can carry!

Our popular annual back to school promotion continues this year! FREE colorful Pencil Pack included with every Backpack or rucksack order. While supplies last! (Red Oxx choice of color).

The K-12 Backpack is ideal for sleepovers and packing snow pants and boots to school. The K-12 also features a special sleeve to hold their tablet or laptop secure. The raised front pocket will gather all their electronic chargers and cables. The indestructible size #10 YKK zippers zip all the way down the sides for easy access. These rocking zippers will withstand all the abuse your kid can throw at them.

Yank those Red Oxx zippers this way, that way, every which way. Zippers that always open, always close.

If the zippers break (yah, right), ship the bag to us. Then first we’ll marvel, then repair or replace with our "No Bull" No Questions Asked Lifetime Warranty. Even this backpack’s bottom is done right using our toughest Ballistic Nylon.

Go ahead, drag that bag.
