There a few bags that you can choose from, for shorter travel trips or longer trips. Depending on what you purchase, the bag will come with a laundry bag, a toiletry bag, a shirt organizer, and waist straps to wear it as a backpack.


Here are NOMATIC’s available bag options.




Collapsible Water Bottle

This water bottle is perfect if you don’t have a lot of space in your luggage. The water bottle collapses to a smaller size, which means less bulk to carry around.

Travel Towel

Depending on where you stay, many places require that guests pay a small fee for a towel or that they bring their own. To avoid bulkiness in your luggage, a travel towel is a lightweight texture that absorbs up to 8 times its water weight. The best part is that it will wring out almost completely dry.


There are various options priced between $9.95 and $24.95 here. 




Waterproof Camera Cases

A waterproof case can keep your camera safe from water, snow, and rain. They are also suitable for swimming, diving at sea, and of course, getting the million dollar shot underwater.


Waterproof cases here start at $7.99.
