After starting off with one of these for trial, I wound uppurchasing several in different colours to help organize the duffel I use when traveling to worksites. I've tried with bags and other compartmentalizers earlier, but this one worked best. A solid, 30 centimetre long zipped puch/bag which has the perfect size to fill with folded shirts, underwear, socks, and shoes.
I would think that it makes for a good bag for toiletries (shave kit, yeah), but so far I've only tried it as a pack organizer. And it really do the job well. If I remember correctly I ended up ordering a total of 5 of these.
The build of the bag feels really solid and sturdy. Heavy duty stuff. I can't say that I fear them tear apart or wear down any time soon ;)
All in all, if you want to organize your pack, these get my full recommendation. The bag is fully open inside (one compartment) with one zippered pocket on each side. If you want to try it as a shave kit or for other toiletries I can't imagine it being anything other than a success.

Great. Solid construction and excellent attention to detail throughout. It's a substantial DOP kit - make sure to check the dimensions to ensure that you're comfortable with something of this size. It's perfect for my needs and I look forward to a lifetime's worth of use.

Bought this Nomad in the Safari pattern as well as a red one. Got a different color so I would know what I was grabbing in my Grip with out have to open up the Nomad to see what is inside. It holds the necessary change of skivvies and t-shirt for a round trip. Thanks for a great and useful product.

Bought the red Nomad to go along with my new Railroad Grip. It is large enough to hold all of my toiletries and then some and looks good while doing it! It also fits perfectly in the bottom of my grip.

I use this as my shaving kit, looked for years for the perfect one, and this is it. Plenty of room for the military weary traveler.
By C Monahan, Utah, October 10, 2013
Perfect doppe kit for me. It is very rugged, zipper is bulletproof, and has plenty of room for all the necessities.
By Doug, Bozeman, MT, October 3, 2013
Very well made product and slightly bigger than I expected. The price was also reasonable.
The shipping is way too expensive. There is no way it costs over $9 to ship from Billings to Bozeman

I'm telling y'all what: this is not rocket science, but something science & every engineer will agree on:
If you think you can barely get by with one, then you better buy two, and if two just might work.... Ya know three is better....and with three generously sized zipper pouches - about everything I can of to take with me. And as I'm thinking, the kids love those monkey fists knots- I believe ill buy another bag or two and fill them up so we won't run out! Great product for every use!

Bought this for my first African hunt. Couldn't have performed better. Plenty of room, built well and looks good. This product is a real winner.
By Dick T, Easton, MD, September 19, 2013
A really nice addition to all my other Red Oxx stuff. It holds every thing needed and still has some room left.
By DENNIS MARK, Northeastern Pa., September 19, 2013
As with all Red Oxx products this is very well made, looks great and has plenty of room. A very good all around product.

The Nomad Shave Kit has been a wonderful addition to my travel packing. It is well proportioned and is crafted with high quality materials. I would highly recommend this product to any travelers looking to upgrade their dob kit or nick knack holder. This product from Red OXX is far superior and will stand the test of time.

For the last seven months or so, I've led a ridiculously peripatetic life, traveling frequently and rarely being in the same place longer than a month or so. This has required a lot of flexibility in how and what I pack, and a need to be increasingly organized so I don't blow a gasket not being able to easily find what I need. These Nomad shave kits make great packing cubes and organizers, for everything from larger toiletries and vitamins to socks and underwear. And as with all RedOxx gear, you'll never have to worry about a torn seam or broken zipper.

Even jammed with miscellaneous small clothing items, this fits crosswise into the Skytrain main compartment leaving just enough room to fold larger items of clothing. Keeps everything from shifting around. The side zip is good for toothbrushes etc.
By Stacey G., Las Vegas, June 17, 2013
A little bigger than I expected! I can look forward to packing all that I need, that's for sure. And I love the Redoxx quality.
By Shelley, Hudson Valley, NY, June 16, 2013
I used my Nomad to pack extra shoes (which weren't necessary, as it rained for nearly 3.5 weeks straight on this trip). While I think it's a beautifully made product, it's a bit bulky, and not useful as a shaving kit, as it doesn't hang (and counter space is non-existent in most hotels in Europe). But, that bright yellow color brightened my day!
By Theresa C, middle Tennessee, May 30, 2013
I purchased this as a gift for a recent h.s. grad who will be headed off to college in a few months. After reading a review from another purchaser who got this shave kit and stocked it with aspirin, bandaids, etc., I also did the same. While I am certain that my grad will have no idea yet how handy this kit and the contents will be, my guess is that he will find out soon enough. I loved the roominess of the shave kit and I am sure that it will hold whatever he might need.
By Scott, Central Oregon, May 5, 2013
Originally ordered a Nomad for a shaving kit and it works great. Seeing its durability led to buying two more for hand tools. I keep 1/4" to 15/16" set of wrenches, pliers, nut drivers, screwdrivers, zip ties, tape,socket set, ratchet, Allen set, tape measure, multimeter and other misc items in these two bags. One is 9lb, the other 13 lbs. I easily pack them by the stout strap handle as needed. These go in a PR5 with a weeks worth of clothes. I'm very impressed with how they are holding up and work out in the field.
Thanks also to Lisa for shipping the items at the best cost and making my timeline.
By Alex, Indiana, April 29, 2013
I bought this product to pair with the airboss carry-on, and they pair quite well. My only complaint is that it takes up about 1/4 of the main compartment, not leaving a lot of other space for clothes.
Overall, when you are not limited on space, this is a great kit. Very durable and strong construction; would definitely buy again, or possibly a smaller one.
By Brian, Stuart, FL, April 25, 2013
This is a great addition to any of the expedition bags or carry-ons. I love the versatility of these kits! You can fit nearly anything into these compact sized toiletry kits. They also excellent as stand-alones for packing quick items to take to the beach and, you don't have to worry about sand destroying the zippers because they are indestructible! Thanks RED OXX for another great product!
Frequently Asked Questions

, 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 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, try to fix it yourself. Check out this video where CEO Jim Markel shows how easy it is to do it yourself.

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.
PACKING CUBE IN DISGUISE.
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. You can also check out our line of packing cubes designed to work with Red Oxx Carry-on bags.
HANDY HANGING HANDLE.
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.
A TOILETRY KIT BUILT LIKE A TANK.
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.
BOUND AND BAGGED!
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.
MY, WHAT BIG ZIPPERS YOU HAVE!
The reason Red Oxx uses the largest zipper we can find, 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.
