We use Nomads for all sorts of purposes but only 1 of them is my guy's shave kit. We order them in specific colors to go along with the color plans we use for all sorts of gear packing related to weather, tasks and length of travel. As the Nomad has a loop handle, it can ride attached on the outside of other bags such as the Sunchaser. It can also ride inside larger bags in the same color as the inside of the bag to make a portable place to stash things well out of sight. Makes an excellent shoe bag and a handy day bag for running around in town. One of the best values from Red Oxx!

I received this as a Christmas gift. The quality is excellent and I appreciate that it is made in USA! I also received the matching "Air Boss" bag. I would highly recommend these products.

There's not much to say about this that hasn't been said. Buy it, you won't be disappointed.
By Jim Amsbury, Denver Colorado, December 1, 2011
Good design, good construction. Should last until I retire. Keep up the good work!!
Just remember to donate your old bag to charity.

...because you won't need it anymore. I bought this bag because I fell in love with my Air Boss, and because I was too cheap to get the tri-fold. This is American made at it's finest. I was very surprised by this bag. first of all it is bigger than expected. In the video, they talk about putting shoes in it. I thought yeah right, her shoes maybe. But, it is big. I don't agree with the review below that said too big. If it's half full, it takes up half the space. It's not like it's a hard side. Or do toiletries and undies or socks in it. and when you need the capacity it is ready to work. Great bag for the car, gym, whatever. Another perfect entry level piece if you haven't tried the coolaid yet.

I bought two of these before I really knew how great red oxx products are and have been so happy with them. The construction is amazing and they are a joy to use. Trust me, just click buy right now, you will find more uses than you could have thought possible.

Great tool for my Railroad Grip, I can stock the Kit for my needs and forget about it for months, works well for my needs and well worth the dough...

This is a good bag, and matches well with my Air Boss, but it's actually just too large for air travel. It can hold your normal sized bottles of shampoo, conditioner, and body wash, but if you're carrying travel sizes it may prove to be a bit too large. Maybe it's a good size for the girlfriend's makeup, but on a recent 10-day vacation I used only half the height of the bag, and I filled it with everything from cotton swabs to razor and shaving gel to Neosporin.
Besides the size, it's a decent bag to carry, seems durable, and worth the cost.

Bag oughta be smaller. its huge, and yup, empty, stuff rolls around in there like a single can of soda in a truck bed. I have to pack socks in mine to keep it from sloshing around. I should have bought the tri-fold. This bag would be considerably more useful at half size. Might be good for someone who travels with a lot. that ain't me. I bought the yellow which is a good way to not leave it behind.
This makes a great bundle for your bundle wrap.
By Carlton, Ft. Worth, August 16, 2011
I bought this to do something other than as a shave kit. This makes a great bag for your under garments and tee shirts so that they are in one location and easily moved from the luggage to the dresser in the hotel room. Not to forget that it helps with the bundled wrap method that I use for my AirBoss.
By Joe, Florida, August 15, 2011
I use this bag for traveling and for my morning gym sessions. It holds all the toiletries I need to get ready for work and I never have to worry about damaging it, because even if it wasn't indestructible Red Oxx has the best warranty imaginable. There's no a lot of separation in the bag so if you need compartments this isn't the bag for you, but if you need a great bag to carry your toiletries it's hard to beat.
By bikerblock, Colorado, July 28, 2011
use it for anything I store my portable credit card machine in it with extra paper rolls and battery charger, guess I will purchase another one for a shave kit.
By Tootie, Cali, July 21, 2011
Bought 2 of these, LOVE them. They are durable, light-weight and look great. Clean easily, opens up wide(most shave bags don't open wide enough so to get your stuff in, you have to shove...not with this bag!) The quality is excellent. We will be buying from you guys again! THANKS

I purchased the nomad after a very positive buying experience with the Air Boss. The quality of the Red Oxx products I've purchased is unparalleled. Best shaving kit I've ever owned.
By Jennifer, Manchester NH, June 2, 2011
This is the ideal toiletry bag for travel. It fits perfectly inside my Air Boss. It's durable, a good size, and has a convenient handle to hang it from a doorknob or your arm on the way to the bathroom. The two side pockets are a nice feature -- I was able to separate my toothbrush from cotton balls without nesting everything in plastic baggies. The price was more than reasonable for the quality. I will buy another for storing and transporting loose cords and chargers.
By LC, Portland, June 2, 2011
Absolutely A1, quality product. Bags of space for all my kit - shaving, toothcare, soaps, creams - the works. Plus loads of extra room still left over.
By Jimbo, Seattle, June 2, 2011
This is a no-nonsense bag. I am a field ecologist and use these shave bags for field crew supplies. I outfit the red bags with basic life support gear, and the purple bags with sunscreen, bug spray, sunscreen, etc. My personal toiletries go in the green bag.
By mike, Amsterdam NY, April 21, 2011
i can fit everything i need to travel in this bag. one hell of a deal.
By GT, Ohio, April 7, 2011
Travel two to three days a week. Won't go anywhere without this bag. Holds everything I need, durable, and easily to clean.

This thing has so much room I could have used it for my main bag...
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?
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, try to 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
. Keep in mind, any determined thief can still cut open a soft sided bag with a sharp knife.
Can you ship USPS?
Yes, Red Oxx will ship USPS upon request. Simply state, "Please ship USPS" in the cart comments during checkout and we will adjust your billing accordingly.

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.
