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.

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...
By Brooksy, Los Angeles, January 6, 2011
It's everything I wanted in a toiletry bag--tough nylon, big YKK zippers with oversized knot pulls with generous but appropriate sizing. I love it. If there was a smaller size, I'd probably get it too.

The Nomad is great! It's big enough that you can have a lot of stuff in there and still have room to root around in it without having to dump everything out! It lives in the bottom of my c-ruck.
By GaylM, Canada, December 15, 2010
I had read that this was a fair size and it really, really is! I agree with some that it's actually a little too big for what I wanted, which was a smaller way to pack my stuff for short trips.
On thinking it through after reading the reviews again & how versatile the kit is, I will probably swap the electronic gadget stuff in my Lil'Roy (which is stuffed to the gills & then some) into this kit and use the Lil'Roy as a smaller toiletry kit.
It all works out in the end. There's always something that I can find to put in a Redoxx product - unfortunately/fortunately? hehe! :)

I went back and forth for a couple of months on this purchase, finally pulled the trigger and could not be happier. Solid, durable product, as are all of Red Oxx's offerings, that holds everything that I carry on trips. The beauty of the size is that it slides perfectly into the middle comparment of my Air Boss. I may take other's adivce and purchase another to carry computer cords, etc. Next up is a Gator!
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!!

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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
