>> JIM MARKEL: I was doing some research for keywords and I came across a little web site called 0:00:08.470,0:00:10.369 onebag.com 0:00:10.369,0:00:14.769 and I contacted the gentleman with an offer to send one of my Safari Beano bags out for him to 0:00:14.769,0:00:15.889 review [pause] 0:00:15.889,0:00:19.169 and for about a year he just kept refusing to even 0:00:19.169,0:00:20.809 look at one of my bags and I finally 0:00:20.809,0:00:25.390 asked him why? What's up? you know... He's like "It's the wrong bag." 0:00:25.390,0:00:27.800 I says, "Well is what is the right bag?" And he says, "Well 0:00:27.800,0:00:29.249 nobody makes it. 0:00:29.249,0:00:33.000 I said, well a challenge! We started a conversation and [pause] 0:00:33.000,0:00:37.220 an out of that conversation the Air Boss was born. The Air Boss was to be to meet a whole 0:00:37.220,0:00:40.130 other market segment that we really weren't adressing. 0:00:40.130,0:00:42.150 Red oxx was an adventure company: 0:00:42.150,0:00:46.490 For safaris, fun weekends out of the lake and stuff like that and we really weren't 0:00:46.490,0:00:48.580 picking up on the business crowd. [pause] 0:00:48.580,0:00:53.060 Well the airbus has three main compartments so we've got 2 outboard compartments 0:00:53.060,0:00:55.590 which were identical and then the center compartment. [pause] 0:00:55.590,0:00:58.150 In the outboard compartments 0:00:58.150,0:00:59.730 you can store 0:00:59.730,0:01:02.700 a dress coat, 0:01:02.700,0:01:03.600 shirts, 0:01:03.600,0:01:09.050 pants. And they're all held in place by this flexible four pound cell foam stay. [pause] 0:01:09.050,0:01:13.730 The straps are expandable. This you know, this keeps you super organized on this side and you can put 0:01:13.730,0:01:14.480 identical 0:01:14.480,0:01:18.000 set up on the other side. you notice that this bag is lined in red 0:01:18.000,0:01:22.090 and that we do that to brighten up the inside the bags, make stuff easily identifiable 0:01:22.090,0:01:26.080 no matter what color the bag is out of our twelve colors all the internal sections are 0:01:26.080,0:01:27.930 red. [pause] 0:01:27.930,0:01:29.780 so closing that back up 0:01:29.780,0:01:32.400 I have this opposite side packed the same. 0:01:32.400,0:01:35.170 Here's a place for your passport, 0:01:35.170,0:01:36.720 plane tickets 0:01:36.720,0:01:38.630 wall street journal 0:01:38.630,0:01:40.020 In the center compartment 0:01:40.020,0:01:45.740 is generally were I like to keep my street clothes, extra pair of shoes, 0:01:45.740,0:01:47.280 toiletry kit, 0:01:47.280,0:01:51.119 and of course assorted socks, nights and sleeping clothes. One of the things I picked up off one 0:01:51.119,0:01:56.219 of the customer reviews was the fact is that you can fit our Metro Briefcase in the middle of an Air Boss. 0:01:56.219,0:02:00.580 [pause] Now if you'd asked me that before I'd have said well I don't know. 0:02:00.580,0:02:02.500 [pause] Here as you can see 0:02:02.500,0:02:04.540 it fits 0:02:04.540,0:02:06.280 just fine. 0:02:06.280,0:02:10.520 The Air Boss has, along with every other Red Oxx product comes with Monkey's Fists which pulls 0:02:10.520,0:02:13.269 the massive # 10 YKK's open. 0:02:13.269,0:02:17.469 As you can see you have to really give these things a pull to come open and closed. The reason 0:02:17.469,0:02:22.499 for that is, each of these zipper pulls has a little locking tab that prevents the bag 0:02:22.499,0:02:26.840 creeping open. To the disengaged that lock you really gotta put some strength to it. 0:02:26.840,0:02:31.459 Don't be afraid to hurt these zippers, they are of course, covered by our Lifetime Warranty. [pause] 0:02:31.459,0:02:35.349 Early on when we first started building bags one of the major complaints with slippage of the bag 0:02:35.349,0:02:36.569 off the shoulder. 0:02:36.569,0:02:40.579 So I looked high and low for a product that would prevent the slipping and little did 0:02:40.579,0:02:43.119 I know that was my own backyard. 0:02:43.119,0:02:47.159 Up in belgrade there's a company that we've contracted with and we have the exclusive on the Claw 0:02:47.159,0:02:52.609 Shoulder Strap. This unique strap is made up of flexible polymer that's 0:02:52.609,0:02:57.989 good for 40 below zero, does not mark, and is sinusoidally 0:02:57.989,0:03:01.979 molded around the webbing. The wedding runs right through the middle of the rubber. 0:03:01.979,0:03:04.549 And of course our stainless steel 0:03:04.549,0:03:06.519 adjusters, swivels here 0:03:06.519,0:03:07.689 make clipping it 0:03:07.689,0:03:09.709 onto the bag 0:03:09.709,0:03:11.359 a breeze. 0:03:11.359,0:03:13.969 This of course would fit on any other 0:03:13.969,0:03:17.239 bag as well. we sell quite a few of these out on the Internet. 0:03:17.239,0:03:19.230 Slip it on your shoulder 0:03:19.230,0:03:19.969 and away you go. 0:03:19.969,0:03:23.849 One of the hallmarks of our designs was right from the beginning we sought to meet 0:03:23.849,0:03:25.709 international carry on standards. 0:03:25.709,0:03:29.649 while other companies were building two U.S. standards, all of our bags were originally 0:03:29.649,0:03:32.239 designed to meet world standards. 0:03:32.239,0:03:36.939 So the Air Boss is suitable for international carry-on has been used in the toughest airport 0:03:36.939,0:03:39.279 world which is Heathrow [pause] 0:03:39.279,0:03:40.659 and from there you can go anywhere.
