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.

 Best In The Land
By Larry B., Columbia, SC, September 30, 2010

I purchased two of these recently, one to hold work tools, and the other to hold the families longer toiletries when we travel.

We recently returned from a beach vacation, and Red Oxx was there the whole way. I packed my clothes inside my Olive PR5, my wife used her Midnight Air Boss, and our two small children shared an Olive Sunchaser. The Red Lil Roy held a still camera and video camera with accessories, which fit smoothly inside the Raven Gator with my netbook and charger. The extra small mesh Aviator bag worked great for beach towels, sunscreen, and the Lil Roy with camera when at the beach or pool. The Safari Tri Fold Kit held all the essentials for a family of four with no problems.

Keep up the great work Red Oxx. Truly superior products!!
 Perfect fit
By Fred, Ohio, September 9, 2010

This one fits perfectly into the middle of the AIR BOSS with room beside it for other items. Other dopp kits I've owned are unnecessarily large and bulky. This is a good size if you pack smaller bottles - not the full size bottle one keeps at home.
By Alessandro, Italy, July 31, 2010

Really versatile. Useful. Very friendly. The right item to complete Air Boss.
 Great Gift
By Washington mom, Washington State, June 10, 2010

This is the second year I have purchased these in bulk for graduation gifts. I fill them with college essentials such as ibuprofen, cough drops and bandaids and give them to all the boys I get invites from - they love them and I know they will work for the kids all through college! Thanks for a great product and for your quick turn around on my orders!
By Chris, Pa., May 21, 2010

If I had to choose one item as an example the whole RedOxx approach, this would be it: Simple, functional design. Ridiculously overbuilt, but not too heavy. Not bad looking. Versatile. Mine is always pre-stocked and stuffed in the middle of my Air Boss, ready to go.
 Perfect Organizer For An Airboss
By Seann H, , May 13, 2010

This little bag is an excellent accessory for organizing your Airboss. When placed in the Airboss's center pouch, the bag fits perfectly standing up (there is ~ 1in of room left). Also rolls up well when not fully stuffed. It wasn't until I got the unit in the mail, that I realized I should have bought two more! You can fit 3 fully loaded nomads in there, with a little extra room for sandals. I was able to stuff 12 pairs of cotton athletic socks in one nomad; or 6 pairs and 5 boxers; or all my misc medications, work gloves, electronics chargers, and a digital camera. The little bag truly has room for anything. A perfect fit for organizing my Air Boss.
 Nomad Shave Kit
By Jordon Ostermiller, Idaho, April 23, 2010

I can't believe that this product only has 10 reviews. I think it is great. I use it for all of my toiletry items. It works perfect. It fits everything I need, with out being to crowded. You would think that a foot long packing style cube would be too big, it's not. The quality of the product is top notch. This is my first Red Oxx purchase, but after this product I am sure there will be more. Thank you for making such a fantastic product!
 Excellent tote
By J Wheelock, Newtown Square, PA, March 19, 2010

Excellent Product and very useful as a small tote bag for meeting supplies.
 This is the toiletry bag you wish you had, if you don't already...
By David Pitts, Bossier City, LA, February 27, 2010

Tooth brush, tooth paste, dental floss, shampoo, conditioner, body wash, wash cloth, razor, shaving gel, hair gel, face wash, lotion... I"m not talking about the travel size items, but the items right out of your bathroom at home. This bag is the only one I have found large enough to accommadate these items. No need to do without personal items anymore... I can't find a quality bag like this anywhere else.
 Great Multi_use Bag
By Dave, Arlington VA, December 18, 2009

This is my 3rd product review, but I can't add much to the reviews below. I Picked up 4 Nomads and use 2 for packing organizers, 1 for ammo and hearing protection for the NRA range, and the last one - red/black - to hold first aid, flashlight, leatherman tool, flares, emergency strobe-extra batteries, reflective belt for my car. These are well-made, reasonably-priced and good bags for diverse uses. I'll probably get a few more to use with hand tools like socket sets and screwdrivers for the car.
 Versatile but Really Big
By Terry Ogg, Liverpool, December 10, 2009

I'm giving this item 5 stars as a gear bag. It's very simply and strongly built to Red Oxx's usual high standards. I cannot fault the materials or workmanship. It is really versatile. I have one that I use in my home office for storage of small gear items like multitools, compact binoculars, torches, etc. But a shave kit? Seriously? It's ENORMOUS. You'd need industrial size toiletries to blow all the space. That said, I am by no means a minimalist on the toiletries front and just packing my other nomad with the toiletries I need for a trip of up to say 3 weeks (including shampoo, shower gel, deodorant aerosol, shave oil & razor, soap bar, toothpaste and brush, mouthwash, facecloth, sponge, sun block and face moisturiser) means I can crush it down and still slip it easily into a side pocket on my C-Ruck. But that just doesn't seem efficient. Now, a Red Oxx bag with half the volume, i.e. half the present height, would be ideal for me.
 Great kit but too big
By MP, LA, December 3, 2009

Love the construction, weight, etc. same as the Air Boss I just rated (to which I gave 5 stars). This Kit is quite large. If you're working hard to reduce sizes of what you carry to save weight, the Nomad Kit is much too big (which then leaves less room in my Air Boss). Having an additional, smaller size in the identical Kit would be perfect.
 Not just a Shave Kit
By JGT, Canada, USA, November 26, 2009

I have several of these I use for a variety of purposes, including as a Shave Kit. From what I read in the comments my uses are typical - small first aid kits for cars, laptop extras, you name it. The fabric is extremely strong, the zippers are as tough as you can get, and it is available in a variety of colors to distinguish your different uses. The generous size is right for me. What would I want in improvements? Maybe a foam padded model? One lined in white fabric, to make small parts easier to find in the darker colors? Make it available in White?
 a perfect fit
By Peter Berg, Hawai'i, December 11, 2008

We've got 3 of these that are all used as mobile first aid bags in various vehicles. We got two in yellow and and one in red to be easily visible. They are a perfect size for what we need to carry which includes lots of gauze and hemostatic agents, antiseptics & eye wash, etc. A great solution for us.

Again, thank you for making such user friendly and durable products.

 Straight Forward and Tough
By Anonymous, Northern Ca, July 25, 2008

Great shave bag. Simple, tough, and big enough to to carry all the toiletry items (including first aid essentials, washcloth and a hand towel) that one might need for an extended journey. Did I mention this bag is tough? Nice.
 Great Air Boss Accessory
By Anonymous, UK, November 16, 2007

Fantastic accessory for the Air Boss - fits great next to my laptop in the center panel. Cables in the zip pocket on one side, iPod and headphones in the other side. Everything else in the middle section. Stow the Air Boss in the overhead, and pull this out to keep with me for the journey. Works perfectly.
 No Toothbrush, Just A Lens Cover
By Cam Smith, , November 20, 2006

I actually bought this dopp kit as an accessory to my Sun Chaser. I have a 400 MM lens for my camera that I didn't want rolling around in the bottom of the bag so I now have a sleeve on the lens and then I zip it up in this shave kit and we keep on trucking. What do you do with your Red Oxx dopp kit?

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.
