Whether your student heads back to school this fall or stays home for home schooling you’re still going to need to solve their sports gear storage problem.
Sports gear can get dirty fast. Sweat, dust, dirt, oils, grass stains, and grime from the games of last year all contribute to "sports gear fatigue". Beat the fatigue and keep your sports gear clean and organized.
Then pack it neatly into any one of four sizes of Red Oxx Aviator Bags to resolve your sports gear storage issues.
Label your Aviator Bags with our personalized custom embossed Dog Tags. With five lines of text and 45 letters and characters available you’re sure to "cover the bases" of your sports gear (pun intended).
Example – title a dog tag: FOOTBALL, perhaps even list some of the gear in the bag such as: HELMET, SHOES, PANTS, JERSEY, GLOVES, JOCKEY … remember you have five lines of text with each line about 15-16 characters for your storage solutions Dog Tag. So you could also include a date the bag was packed and stored, or a contact name and phone number.
Each Dog Tag comes with a 4.5" long metal beaded chain to attach to the appropriate storage bag. If that doesn’t seem secure enough for you, check out our more secure Cable Lock Braided Wire Fastener option to attach the custom Dog Tag to your Aviator Storage Bag.
SPECS: 15"L x 8"W x 11"H
The Red Oxx Extra Small XS Aviator Kit Bag is a best seller. And for good reason; it has all the sturdy features of our high-end luggage line, without the dazzle and bling. So simplicity rules here. A simple single compartment bag built using our standard black 1000 Denier Weight CORDURA® Brand Nylon Fabric. No pockets or extras. One rock solid YKK #10 Vislon Zipper extends down both sides of the bag for easy access. The handles are made from un-tearable 1.5-inch wide webbing that wraps all the way around the bag. It’s double-box stitched at each stress point.
The revised XS Aviator was resized a couple years ago and given dual stainless steel nickle-plated D-rings on each end. No if you want to add a carry strap, you can. The Extra Small Aviator would be ideal for storing a helmet, or ski/snowboard boots, or a handful of softballs, or team hockey gloves or baseball mitts, etc.

At over two feet in length, this bag is one of our largest bag offerings. Some sports gear such as tennis rackets, little league baseball bats (and bases), and so forth can also be stored in this large bag.
If it gets too heavy to carry with one-hand, attach one of our superior luggage straps to the bag for shoulder carry.
IF you’re worried that having a bunch of gear jammed into a large bag might end up a bit "disorganized" consider our packing cubes. Available in a large variety of sizes. The Kingfisher Large Packing Cube measures 14"L x 11"W x 2"D. Or try the micro size Hedgehog Extra Small Packing Cube which measures 8"L x 5"W x 2"D.
