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.).

The best equipment ever. Just like the rest of their product line.

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.

Of the four items recently purchased this is the only one I wish were bigger with more pockets.

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.

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..
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.
One of the real bargains here
By MWebb, San Francisco CA, May 24, 2012
RedOxx has clearly been reading their customer comments and incorporating the "use recommendations" into their product blurb.
For example, I bought mine years ago, but never as a shave kit - I just don't have that many toiletries and just stuff them in a Ziploc (and Ziplocs won't soak up bathroom counter water!).
BUT as an organizing/mini bag? Priceless. For years I used mine inside a daypack to provide extra organization inside the daypack. Since I periodically switch my EDC (every day carry) bag, I stowed my most essential items in the Nomad and when I switched EDC bags, always made sure to switch the Nomad too. Result? No missing essentials.
I also used the Nomad as a "pull out" bag when carrying only a single carry-on bag into an airplane cabin. A "pull-out" bag is for stuff you don't want to go rummaging in the overhead bin for, later, small enough to stow at your feat when you sit down. The Nomad nails this function, with a fat main compartment combined with the side zipper slots which add much needed organization (for example, my cellphone goes into a side zipper slot).
You should also note that the Nomad fits the main compartment of the Gator flight bag perfectly.
The Nomad is a slightly heavier solution than a silnylon zipper stuff sack, but a whole lot better looking and a lot more rugged. And do not underestimate the utility of the two side zipper slots for keeping stuff handy!

This is a very generous bag, very well designed and manufactured.
It is my hold everything bag. All my small bits and bobs live in this bag in one of the 3 pockets. The main pocket is huge.
Love this, it is a good purchase.
By Washington mom, Eastern Washington, May 3, 2012
This is my 3rd year purchasing this product for all the male grads I need to get gifts for!!! I love the construction and to fill them up with bandaids, first aid ointment, and other items most 18 year old boys need - but don't know they need!!!
Thanks for the Great service as usual!
By Arthur Greenwald, Los Angeles, May 3, 2012
This is a great product and is perfect for carrying all the toiletries and grooming stuff I need for either an overnight stay or an extended road trip. In fact, I bought two so I could have a pre-stocked shave kit for both kinds of travel -- each ready to throw in a suitcase as needed.
Solid Construction Plenty of Space
By J, Miami, April 26, 2012
Very solid construction without feeling course or rigid. The pockets on the side are nice for keeping the loose items free from the main body to hold shaving creme, razor, toothpaste, etc. Highly Recommend the kit!
By Duncan, Arizona, April 22, 2012
Great sized bag, and everything I would normally have to shoe-horn into my old kit fit very nicely. The side pockets are a nice organizing bonus.
Overall construction and quality of materials is superb.
I'd highly recommend this product, and will likely order a couple more for family members.
By John Donohue, Hamden, CT, April 19, 2012
Perfect size and layout. The ideal shaving case...simple and roomy
By Brian, Atlanta, GA, April 19, 2012
Loved the Kit bag. great for everything. I use 2 different bags. one for toiletry shave kit and one for electronics and chargers.
By Kevin, Ohio, March 29, 2012
This is a great travel kit. Not sure why some reviewers think it is too big. Can easily be condensed. It is perfect for packing everything I will need while traveling for business. I bought the red because it matches my black Air Boss, but is quick and easy to locate.
Would definitely recommend this kit to anyone.
By D.S. Hoover, Ridgeley WV, March 26, 2012
Very well made in the USA ! Highly recommended. THANK YOU.

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.
