Imagine, a Footlong Packing Cube!

During extended deployments, the "dopp kit design" of our most simple toiletry bag is based on roomy tried-and-tested military shave kits. The footlong main compartment is big enough to get lost in, and the two external zippered flat slip pockets help you quickly find your medication or your toothbrush.

One could even use the Nomad Shave Kit to carry a pair of shoes, flats, sandals or slippers, making it a "footlong packing cube," thereby keeping your other belongings free of dirt and soiling. You can stuff three Nomads across in both the Air Boss and Sky Train, they really do make great packing cubes. So you could pack one to carry socks and underwear, one with rolled t-shirts, and one to hold a pair of flats or sandals.

The carry handle makes it easy to hang on door handles, or wrench out from being buried under other luggage (an especially "handy" feature while using this packing cube during overland travel). Heavy-duty #10YKK zippers all come with our Fair Trade Monkey Fist Zip Knots for quick and easy zip open and close action.

Our customers like to define our gear as "built like a tank". While obviously you're not going to be toting around shave kits that weigh 20 tons and have two  inches of armor plate, still the comparison is valid. For a shave kit, Nomads are built tough. Starting with one of the most durable textile materials available, 1000 weight CORDURA® nylon, we use super strong UV resistant thread that is stitched into every seam.

Places where two separate pieces of fabric are stitched together are then bound, that is, we take a long piece of one inch wide nylon webbing and fold it over the edges of the two pieces and stitch them together, this creates a strong seam, or binding, that prevents the pieces from unraveling on the inside of the bag. All of our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in competitors toiletry shave kits that brag of "binding" their edges.

The reason Red Oxx uses the largest zipper we can afford, the #10 YKK VISLON® zipper, is that they are easily repairable, even in the field; they will hold their place, that is, they "lock"; they are difficult to penetrate, thereby increasing the security of your belongings; they function smoothly in inclement weather and they can be yanked from a variety of angles without losing teeth or becoming separated.

Like everything we build, the Red Oxx Nomad Shave Kit is guaranteed to never come apart. Choose from 12 vibrant colors. Mix-and-match or color coordinate to keep everything organized.

The Nomad: another simple, yet effective, multi-use soft-sided bag from Red Oxx.

 great little bag
By Janet , Indiana, January 3, 2013

Great product. I bought several and use them as an emergency kit, dance shoe bag and packing cube. I love the durablity of the fabric. It's a little large for a cosmetic bag though. Any chance of getting one about 1/3 smaller? I perfer the Nomad style over the L'l Roy style.
 Great quality
By Tony, Melbourne, Australia, January 3, 2013

Great bag. Great quality. Just like my Air Train. I like the big zips and how it opens out. I'd like to see a smaller version too for when i just need the basics
 Xmas Gifts
By madeline boehm, United States, December 28, 2012

I have a Sky Boss and love it, my husband bought one too, to take on our honeymoon. For Xmas I got the Nomad Kit for my husband and step dad. Both love them. I have been impressed with not only the quality of Red Oxx gear, but the great service.
 Best gear ever
By Mike S., Colorado, December 26, 2012

The best shave kit that I ever owned. Every product that I buy from this company has the best quality for the price!
 Get this bag
By Eric, Arkansas, December 26, 2012

Airline or TSA lost my leather Dopp kit (zipper pockets on both sides) which necessitated my search a for a replacement; I cannot believe how hard it is to find a Dopp Kit with two zipper pockets...until I found the Nomad! Nomad gets the job done, and it's Sweetie approved, she wants one for herself.
 Back From India
By Al, Port Washington, WI, November 29, 2012

I purchased two Nomads:

one for each of my vehicles to hold my Mini Maglites, folding knives, gloves, scarves, beanies, etc.

However, just got back from 17 days in northern India. Used one Nomad to carry spare batteries, chargers, adapters, cables, etc. I received many compliments on the durability of this bag. Two things I personally like: the size and the HD zippers.
 Fantastic Bag!
By Robert Stull, Vero Beach, FL, October 26, 2012

I do a good bit of traveling and it has been hard to find a shaving kit that was satisfactory and that was pliable for stuffing in a small suitcase. This bag holds everything you would want and more. It works perfectly! In fact, I even bought a second one to carry my iPad/iPod charging cords, etc. and it works perfectly for that too.
 Awesome Bag - Awesome Price
By Anonymous, Texas, September 18, 2012

For the price, this is one awesome bag. I find it to be a little on the large size for a shaving kit, but adds to its versatility for other duties. As with everything Red Oxx makes, durability is second to none.
 Great Kit!
By D.Webb, Palestine, TX, September 6, 2012

This kit replaces a ditty bag I have been using for 27 years. With ample room for everything I need for extended travel in the US, Europe, Australia, and Antarctica I can say it is a great replacement kit.

The heavy material and zippers are great and I don't have to worry about items getting lost in there. The main compartment is huge and opens wide. The side pockets can accommodate all of the small stuff like clippers, combs, and Q-tips.

This kit exceeds my expectations and the price point is far batter than any other kit I have looked at.
 Absolutely ... unbelievable
By Carl Mischke, Johannesburg ZA, September 6, 2012

Stunning quality, colour. Robust and strong. Really love it - ordering MORE!
 You need this bag!
By Rali, PA, September 4, 2012

After a Google search for US made toiletry bags led me to Red Oxx, I ordered 3 of these, one for each family member, for an upcoming trip. They arrived within a couple of days and we all love them. The size is great and the colors are beautiful, the big zippers are nice and sturdy and the soft body makes them easy to fit into bigger luggage. Also especially love that they are made in the US. Thanks Red Oxx for a great product.
 Great Bag For Anything
By Mark Eckhoff, Hanna City, Illinois, August 30, 2012

Before I ordered the Nomad, I was a little concerned that it was going to be too big. I was pleased to find out that once I transferred my stuff from my old ditty-bag, I found out that the bag collapses nicely to the size of however much you have in it.

I then tried to stuff it full of anything I could think of I might want to take if not traveling by air and space and weight didn't matter. I found out I could stuff my usual toiletries plus my 4-1-1 bag, an Eagle Creek 1/4 cube full of stuff to do sink laundry (including a viscose towel) and another EC 1/4 cube I call my traveling junk drawer. I also stuffed in two big cans of spray-on sunscreen and there was room left over for even more if I needed.

I've since ordered 5 more. One each for my wife and son. One as a tool bag in matching color for our HD motorcycle. I gifted one to our friend to also use as a tool bag in her bike. She loves it too!

I keep an extra one laying around for odd uses as they arise (ammo/shooting bag, packing cube, etc.).
 shaveing kit
By Tom, Naples, Florida, August 30, 2012

The best equipment ever. Just like the rest of their product line.
 Great as a gift
By Joe, Germany, August 19, 2012

I purchased a shave kit about a year ago and loved it. I used it for several trips back and forth from the states as well as trips around Europe. The kit was so impressive my wife started stealing it for her trips. It fits all of your toiletries even full size ones, not that you can take them on a plane, but they will fit. They can also be useful for packing socks and underwear for use with the bundle wrapping method or putting as a base layer for packing other (red oxx) bags. Definitely worth the purchase price.
 A stout bag
By James C. Williams, James C. Williams, August 11, 2012

Of the four items recently purchased this is the only one I wish were bigger with more pockets.
 Built To Last
By Randall, Omaha, Nebraska, August 9, 2012

I bought three of these bags in various colors to use for shoes, socks, and underwear in my Sky Train. (NOTE: I wear a size 11 shoe. If you wear a larger size, your shoes may not fit in these.) They are as sturdily constructed as the bigger bags, and I have no doubt they will last a long time.
 Shave Bag
By Anonymous, , August 4, 2012

Bag needs side support and separate compartments. Quite a step down from quality of carry on bag. Almost bought one for a friend but glad I did not. Would pay more for a better quality product. Basically a glorified sock..
 Air Boss Accompaniment
By Brook, Austin, TX, August 2, 2012

I asked for the Air Boss as a Christmas gift last year and finally bought this to go along it, as it's a better size than the dopp kit I'd been using. The construction is great.
 Excellent Shave Kit from a Great Company!
By M. Montequin, Tacoma, WA, July 28, 2012

This was the very first product I purchased from Red Oxx, but I am certain it will not be last.

I had been searching for a long time for a USA-made shave kit before I came across Red Oxx. The price is more than reasonable and the quality of materials and construction are outstanding.

I highly recommend this product, as well as this company!
 Best Toiletry Kit Out There
By James, West Texas, July 28, 2012

I bought this to replace my last Dopp kit because my aftershave leaked in flight and stained my clothes with leather dye. I had heard about Red Oxx through the Internet and thought I would give them a try.

There is simply no better value out there. The quality and attention to detail are outstanding. This kit is generously sized so you can fit everything you need. The zipper on the main compartment allows unencumbered access to the main compartment so you won't have to reach into this thing without being able to see your hand.

Best of all, if something leaks in this thing I just wash it out with cold water. I love it and would buy another in a second.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will the Nomad fit in the end pocket of the Safari Beano's Bags?
Yes, the fit will be tight in the smallest bag, the PR4, but will fit inside all the other Safari Beano's models, including the large raised side pockets on the Sun Chaser and Flying Boxcar.
What's the difference between the Nomad and Tri-fold Shave Kit, or the Lil Roy?
The Tri-fold is designed to fold open to access it's individual interior storage pockets. This makes it handy to access toiletries while hanging from a doorknob, for example. The Lil Roy is a catchall or electronic gadget bag with two interior mesh pockets and carry handles. One could certainly use the Lil Roy as a toiletry bag!
Are there pockets on the inside?
The Nomad has one spacious interior compartment and two outside flat pockets for smaller items.
My zipper broke. The teeth have separated. Do I send it in for warranty repair?
No need for warranty repair, fix it yourself. Check out this video where CEO Jim Markel shows how easy it is to do it yourself.
Is there a way to securely lock my bag?
Sure, you can use any TSA approved bag lock or try our Cable Lock for a simple, semi-secure solution. Watch this video where CEO Jim Markel demonstrates how you can use the cable that comes with the product Dog Tag price tag to secure your bag.
