Since Dad’s probably been penned up for awhile, gorging on over-supplied food and extending his belt notches these past few months, no doubt he’s looking to get back into shape.
Now that most gyms are opening up, check out the cool Jim’s Gym Bag, a mesh sports duffel released in recognition of our company founder, Jim Markel Senior, a hard-core weight lifter if there ever was one.
Case in point: when Jim Sr. was a Gunny Sarge in the Army, his arms were so big he could barely fit into his uniform. Can you imagine? Arms the size of your legs? From weight lifting?
Well Jim Jr., his son and current CEO of Red Oxx, brought out this bag this spring that made his Dad proud. Jim’s Gym Bag features a sleek round packing cube, a mesh main compartment in the middle, mesh side pocket and twin end pockets (one end mesh).
For a limited time, this special edition Red Eye Collective duffel comes with the packing cube, a Nalgene water bottle, and a limited edition Red Eye Collective Red Oxx hat you can’t get any other way. Finished off in bold red stitching, Jim’s Gym Bag is just the ticket to inspire Dad to get back in shape.
Our ever popular Gator EDC Bag got similar updates as the laptop briefcases. A sleek expanding side pocket replaces the much maligned flat pocket. The Gator always was an ideal bag for every day carry, now it’s reached perfection.
If Dad is a craft beer connoisseur and is often seen hauling around a beer growler, check out the Mini Tote Bag, it’s the perfect size and price for safely, and discreetly, carrying a beer growler.
Said Lacy, our Product Designer, "I know my Tote bags keep getting stolen by guys for hauling tools, camping gear, booze, they are just great for everything."
On a bit of a budget this year? Understood, and no worries, the Red Oxx Lil Roy is another outstanding multi-use bag sized just right for hauling all those electronic gadgets such as batteries, chargers, and the cables needed to operate them. With two snap-closure mesh pockets on each side and a spacious main compartment, the "Lil" Roy comes in twelve vibrant colors from bright Saffron yellow to cool Raven black. You’re sure to find Dad’s favorite color.
Is Dad’s favorite Internet device an iPad tablet? After months of testing, the Micro Manager everyday carry device tote is ready to shield Dad’s tablet from dangerous drops. Fully padded all around the exterior and even around the tablet slip pocket inside, the Micro Manager also organizes those pesky cables, batteries, chargers, mouse and even a keyboard.
Red Oxx carries two great shave kits at two great price points. The ever popular Nomad Shave Kit has a long proven track record as a tough little toiletry kit that’s big on the inside. The Tri-fold Shave Kit has more features for more performance. Capable of hanging open from its clever hidden pop-out hanging strap, your Father will love the big twin see-through mesh pockets for organizing his hair care products, tooth brushes, toothpaste and shavers. He’ll really appreciate the privacy pocket for those secretive things he wants to keep out of sight.
Not only does this cute little cinch sack feature a camo pattern with a story, the very name rings out "Montana". This popular "Possibles Pouch" is built with Tigerstripe Camo on the outside and then lined with your choice of five bright neon colors for the lining. Get Dad one and fill it up with all kinds of goodies, such as…
Keeping Dad’s furry face smelling fresh and looking sweet using Beard Mountain Yukon Beard Polish Wax. It’s not just about the beard, there’s his skin underneath. Every beard needs a healthy follicle to grow long and strong. Beard Mountain comes through the forest of hair with Wild Yukon Beard Oil Potion.
Perhaps Dad is more of a moustache kinda guy. Not to worry, if his moustache acts up, Wild Yukon Moustache Tranquilizer Wax is here to tame it, available in a super convenient lip balm size.
The herd at Red Oxx loves to test out quality travel accessories, and thorough testing by the herd backs Seki Edge Grooming Instruments – they come highly recommended. Crafted in Japan from "samurai steel" you can artfully trim your beard or ‘stache, perfectly snip those crusty toenails, straighten out his fingernails, or trim those unsightly nostril hairs. No travel toiletry kit is complete without Seki Edge.
Another popular gift idea for Dad here at Red Oxx is our famous Tri-fold Rigger Wallet. Dad will now have a wallet that will not only last forever, but look great with a splash of any one of twelve vibrant colors getting there.
The Red Oxx design team took a look at our laptop bags and made some crucial updates. The famous "million mile Metro" and CPA Briefcases now feature a padded hanging laptop sleeve and a reorganized interior with more, and more useful pockets. Outside of the bags, both the Metro and it’s bigger brother the CPA laptop briefcase also got the new trolley sleeve pass-through pocket, an ingenious design that allows you to carry your bag on top of… gasp, a rollaboard.
