The Red Oxx Air Boss is worthy of any light traveler’s consideration. It is close to maximum legal carryon size, yet weighs well under four pounds. It has NO WHEELS - which is a good thing; wheels would double the weight and eat interior capacity. And, it was developed in consultaion with Doug Dyment - the one-bag expert. At $225 this bag costs a lot less than many high-end carryons, and it will probably last several times longer than those $100 bags, which means it may be the best carryon value on the planet. Red Oxx products are made in the USA and carry lifetime warranties.


By the way, the Air Boss has its own packing diagram (also by Dyment) which can applied to most any carryon.
