I am a very lucky man in that I travel 46 weeks per year for work. I travel this wonderful country and basically beat the h#ll out of normal luggage and wash kits. I am usually on the road ten weeks at a time and need as much capacity in as little space as possible. The Tri Fold is without question the very, very best wash kit period!! Red Oxx really know how to create the strongest, most practical products. The Tri fold holds everything I need on an extended run. I am a wet/ straight razor shaving fan and therefore carry a large quantity of product with space to spare. I highly recommend the Tri fold without a single reservation.
These guys just get it!

Wow! I've purchased other Red Oxx Products and have always been impressed. Now I understand why Jim Markel takes his Tri-fold everywhere! I was in a hurry to pack for a trip to Colorado so I just jammed all my toiletries in it, basically emptying my bath cabinet. I couldn't believe everything fit with room to spare:
Electric toothbrush, toothpaste, washcloth, lotion, shampoo, hairbrush, breath mints, deodorant, sunscreen, foot cream, electric razor, sleeping tablets and an assortment of vitamins.
Everything neatly tucked away. I was wanting a handle but then discovered the snap strap in the pocket. This toiletries bag will be going everywhere with me. A highly recommended shave kit by a unique and talented American company.

This is the best toiletries bag I have ever seen. Construction is bulletproof. It holds more than I would ever bring on a trip. It seems to be tougher than the kit bag that I carried it in.

I have had my shave kit for a few months now and am, as always, very pleased with the quality of Redoxx products. The shave kit is quite large (it will take standard size toiletries not just those silly little carry-on sizes) and you can pack everything in it that you could possibly need for weeks away. However, it is quite bulky when packed full and takes up a lot of room in my Air Boss. Good for a longer trip away but I tend not to use it for shorter trips or when going hand luggage only.
DOUBLES AS AN ACCESSORY BAG
By Jim W., Asheville, May 4, 2008
I am preparing for a 14-day summer trip to Italy and Greece. I decided, as a personal challenge, to do this with a carry-on bag only. I dislike the whole checked luggage process. Admittedly, I'm from the "travel light, freeze at night" school of thought and hate carrying extra stuff/weight. So, before I lay down some serious cash for a Safari PR5 or Flying Boxcar bag, I wanted to check out the workmanship of Red Oxx. I was pretty sure your gear was going to be high quality based upon reviews and the fact that former military types are doing the work (including a rigger, no less). I decided to order a Tri-Fold Shave Kit. It's pricey, but would give me a hands-on look at your product. Alright, so after a few days of waiting, it turns out that you guys ARE the real deal!
It is the best full-size shaving kit I have seen (and I'm a bag fanatic). I generally don't write reviews, but here I am going on about a shaving kit. Not only can I carry any toiletries I wish, but with room to spare, I'm going to simultaneously use it as a catch all utility bag within the carry-on for any loose or miscellaneous items (including a camera). It is true that you get what you pay for, and I don't plan on ever having to purchase another shaving kit. My order for a travel bag will soon be on its way. Keep up the good work and please keep it American made. Thank you.PS- Now I wonder if one could travel for a couple of days with just the TriFold Shave Kit. Hmm...
Sledgehammer of Toiletry Kits
By JM, Los Angeles, February 2, 2008
Awesome. Holds all the most common full-sized toiletries you need. I was afraid it would be too big but it's just right. It is certainly heavy-duty. Super-thick nylon and huge zippers. Not sure what else to say. Hmm... It's also convenient how it folds open, so you don't have to dig around for stuff. Really, really well-made.
By Chris Boughton, Philippines, November 28, 2007
I bought this to go with the Air Boss and consider it the most well made, functional and practical toiletries bag I have ever had. The two mesh compartments are large enough for all my needs, and the hanging strap makes it perfect for overnight hotel stays, just hang it and use it. It's a pity about the "put your liquids and gels in a ziplock bag" rule at airports now but even then the rest of the stuff goes in the Tri-Fold.
Tri-Fold Shave Kit Perfect For Business Travelers
By Mark Olsen, , February 21, 2007
I have been using my tri-fold shaving kit for well over a year for all of my business trips. I keep it stocked and ready to go on short notice. It doesn't matter if it is a two week trip or a two day trip the tri-fold shave kit carries and organizes all of your personal care products! I hang it on a towel rack in the hotel and everything is at my fingertips. This is truly an outstanding bag!
By Kirsten Morissette, , July 21, 2006
I used this bag as a first-aid kit on a 3-week trip to Europe with my family. The pockets were perfectly situated to fit all the bandages, medications and everything else a doctor on the move needs. Next time you get a first-aid kit, dump the products out of the cheap bag and put them in this Red Oxx shave kit. You won't regret it.
Tri-fold shave kit makes more feel like less.

Compact, functional, and very straightforward. Pockets in just the right places for just the right amount of stuff. A+
Frequently Asked Questions
What's the difference between the Tri-fold and the Nomad Shave Kit?
The Nomad is simpler, featuring a large basic main compartment and twin exterior flat pockets whereas the Tri-fold has two zippered interior mesh interior pockets and a zippered flat fold-out "privacy pocket" and can be opened flat for quick, easy access.
Why is the price higher for a Tri-fold Toiletry Kit?
Assembly involves a number of small pieces that are difficult to stitch together, so the Tri-fold takes longer to assemble, thus the price is a reflection of its labor costs.
Will the Tri-fold fit in the end pockets of the Beanos Duffels, the raised side pockets of the Sun Chaser and Flying Boxcar, etc?
The Tri-fold Shave Kit was designed to fit perfectly in the end pockets of all the Safari Beanos series
as well as the larger raised side pockets of the Sun Chaser and Flying Boxcar. The Tri-fold will also fit beautifully in the middle compartments of the Sky Train and Air Boss.
What's the side release buckle for?
This handy buckle allows the Tri-fold to be hung open, say over a doorknob or carried as a handle, yet be tucked away inside its zippered pocket when not needed.
Is there a way to securely lock my Shave Kit?
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.
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.
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.

A SHAVE 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 50 tons and have three inches of armor plate, still the comparison is valid. For a shave kit, Tri-folds are built tough. Starting with the most durable soft textile material available, 1000 weight Cordura nylon, we use super strong UV resistant thread that is double stitched into every seam. Rugged, reliable and tough.
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, or gives it a clean finished look if on the outside of the bag. All of our binding material is vertically woven to prevent fraying, peeling or splitting that you may commonly see in less expensive shave kits that brag of "binding" their edges.
MY, WHAT BIG ZIPPERS YOU HAVE!
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 toiletries; they function smoothly in inclement weather and they can be yanked from a variety of angles without losing teeth or becoming separated.
MORE THAN JUST A TOILETRY KIT
Because of the nifty nature of the tri-fold hanging design and individual compartments of this shaving kit, with a little imagination you can use it for a number of things. Here's a list of some great ideas we've seen.
- Store and organize your cutlery while camping
- Create a first aid kit, the flat fold open design and see-through mesh pockets, along with the quick-zip zippers makes it an ideal first aid responder kit bag.
- Cooking spices kit for camping. Simply hang it up over your cooking area for quick and easy access to spices, cooking oils, etc.
- Organize your electronics gear. Separate pockets allow you to stuff your chargers, power strips, batteries and more.
- Organize your makeup cosmetics, hair sprays and lotions.
- Simple tools bag - organize your automotive repair wrenches and ratchets in the three pockets.
- Range bag - organize your shooting accessories - hearing protection, eye protection, extra magazines, boxes of ammo, etc.
