Jim Markel Makes The World’s Best UnWheeled Luggage And Travels Responsibly

Jim-MarkelFormer US Marine rigger, Jim Markel, builds Red Oxx Luggage in a workshop in Billings, Montana. Backed by a simple ironclad guarantee, and built to the best specifications, we’ve traveled with it for years and speak from experience. Jim joins us here to talk about the quality that makes his luggage special but also his attitudes about travel. Wherever he goes in the world he works to make a difference whether in bettering the life of residents of villages in Guatemala through jobs or distributing mosquito netting to children to combat malaria in Africa. Along with his humanitarian efforts he discusses with Paul some recent fishing adventures in Africa.
