Shaving kit? Try the ultimate bathroom travel case

There's nothing worse than arriving at your hotel after a long flight, opening your bag, and discovering your fancy lotions and creams have leaked all over your selvedge denim jeans. Actually, now that we think about it, there are probably a lot of things worse than that, but it still sucks.

To fix that problem, two Aussie brothers, Josh and Saul Cockburn (pronounced CO-burn, kiddies), tackled the need for a manly-yet-sturdy container for their toiletries and turned to crowd-funding their own design on Kickstarter.

Say hello to Tooletries.

The case measures 10.2in L x 3.5in W x 6.5in H, making it big enough to fit your manscaping tweezers, yet small enough to be tucked away in your luggage. Its hard outer shell is made from impact-resistant plastic, featuring the same carbon-fiber look and feel as your cousin's questionably souped-up Honda Civic. 

The removable netting ensures your precious hand lotions and beard oils stay right where they should be, and the waterproof neoprene lining the interior gives them extra cushioning as well.

On the off chance your stuff does end up leaking, though, the whole mess'll be sealed off from your silk boxer-briefs in an easily washable container.

Plus, it looks about a thousand times manlier than ziplock bags.

The Tooletries case'll come in two colors, red and black, and the deluxe version comes with a microfiber face towel, three 50ml branded Tooletries travel bottles, and -- perhaps most importantly -- a brick of manly soap.

Interested in scoring one of your very own? You've got a few days left (as of this writing) to back the project on Kickstarter, after which point you'll have to wait till they're mass-produced to get your hands on one.
