About


Tashtego is the ultimate solution to the long-suffering toiletries bag. Inspired by the neat and organized design of tool rolls, Tashtego is a clean, sanitary, minimalist way to organize and store all your travel essentials.

Say goodbye to hair in toothbrushes and exploded shampoo over your razor. With Tashtego, all your brushes, razors, and bottles are securely separated from each other and easy to find.

Roll up all your personal care tools in a neat, organized, easily displayable kit. Never search for your toiletries again!


Tashtego 2.0 is an better, more functional version of our first design. We read all the reviews (both positive and negative) and worked with a group of our most die-hard fans to reinvent, enhance, and improve our 1.0 product.

If you’ve ever travelled, you know the pain of carrying your hygiene essentials. Ziploc bags get messy and gross - and the “high end” toiletry bags are even worse... 

Everything mixes together, gets lost, and leaks all sorts of goo, gunk, and grossness over the very tools you use to clean yourself.

Do you enjoy digging through the black hole of toiletries?

How about your toothbrush having a three-way with your hairbrush and toe nail clippers?

Or your shampoo spilling all over your essentials?

Are you tired of sorting through junk just to find your personal hygiene tools dirty and disgusting?

It’s time for a change.

Tashtego keeps all your toiletries separate and organized. No more digging and no more inappropriate make out sessions between hygiene items.

Mesh pockets keep your essentials neatly organized and easy to find - so you can grab what you need when you need them. Plus, you can lay Tashtego flat or hang it up for easy access.

All Your Essentials Organized

Lay flat or hang!

Camping, backpacking, vacations, business trips, festivals, retreats and more - Tashtego is perfect for any and every travel situation.  

Throw it in your bag or suitcase without worry. You’ll save space while keeping your toiletries safe from each other and the rest of your bag. 

Tashtego 2.0 also expands and contracts based on what you put in it. Save extra space if you’re leaving for a weekend and pack extra for that long vacation.

Plus, Tashtego 2.0 makes TSA easy to pass! Simply pull it out for screening. Your items will be easily and fully displayed for the TSA agent - no worries, no hassle, no mess.

Durable Waterproof Nylon

Tashtego 2.0 is made from heavy-duty, high-strength nylon. This makes it ultra-durable, ultra-light, and 100% waterproof. Plus, the exterior is soft and nice to the touch.

If you ever need to wash it, just rinse it down in the sink or throw it in the washing machine.

Tashtego 2.0 is completely machine washable!


Mesh Stretch Pockets

We replaced our canvas pockets with durable, unidirectional stretchable mesh pockets. This lets you easily see all your content and makes Tashtego more secure and versatile. Carry your full-size toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, hairbrush, razor, everything without worry.

You can even store items smaller than the pocket! They’ll still be safely secured thanks to the mesh lining.

Anti-Sag Technology

Because they only stretch one way, our pockets will never stretch out on you. This means you don’t have to worry about baggy lining or losing the tight snug of your mesh overtime or over use.

Tashtego 2.0 lasts - pockets and all. 

Silicone Bead Backing

To make sure your items stay snug in Tashtego’s pockets, we added a silicone bead backing that prevents your things from sliding out.

Small or large, your essentials will be tight and secure in Tashtego. No more slipping and sliding. 

YKK Zipper Side Pocket

Our side zipper pockets lets you stash away smaller items and small liquid bottles - so they don’t spill everywhere. The zippers are made by YKK - the world’s leading zipper manufacturer - which means you’re in good hands.

Top Flap Pockets

Our top flap keeps all your essentials clean and keeps out water, dust, and any undesirables. But that’s not it. With Tashtego 2.0, we added additional pockets for your small stash items - such as nail clippers and chapstick.

Get even more from the same awesome design everyone loves!

Lay Flat Design

Tashtego lays flat on its back - keeping your brushes and razors away from the bacterial cesspool called the countertop. Lay it down on any counter and easily find your essentials in a flash!

Dual Metal Grommets

If there’s no place to lay your Tashtego, you can also hang it! Dual metal grommets lets you hang Tashtego practically anywhere.

Hang diagonally or levelled! We added an extra grommet so you can have your toiletries leveled and secure while hanging. Whether it’s a towel rack, shower curtain, or even a tree - you’ll have all your personal care tools at arms reach!

G-Hook Strap

We replaced our old notched strap with a versatile G-hook that clips onto a daisy chain of webbing - letting you tighten and loosen your Tashtego as needed, with zero slack.

Wrap up your minimalist setup or roll up your entire countertop setup! Tashtego will accommodate all your needs and firmly close without extra space between the roll. Get full, secure closure - no matter what!

Though we created Tashtego for our hygiene tools, people have used it for much more than that. Whether it’s for camera gear, medical tools, everyday carries, lotion or as a knife roll - use Tashtego for whatever you need! 

The durable material and compact design makes it ideal for any situation where you need your tools clean, separated, organized, and ready to go!

Tashtego is the ultimate travel toiletries kit. No more unsanitary messes or mixing of brushes - keep all your personal care essentials compact, ready to go and easy to find!


Hi, I’m Parker.

I like to make things. I make pens, knives, treehouses, drones and, now, anything else my kids want to make. But the biggest thing I’ve made is an airplane.

Yeah, the kind you get in and fly. I flew it all over our beautiful country - Death Valley, Maine, Florida, through the Bahamas and other places where the “airport” is really just a patch of crushed coral or a clearing carved out of the forest. These are places where there aren’t mechanics to work on airplanes, so taking tools along is a pretty good idea.

Airplanes can only lift a certain amount of weight and there isn’t much space, so you have to think carefully about what to take and how to pack it. Getting smacked in the face by a floating wrench really hurts.

That’s when I fell in love with tool rolls. Tool rolls can be small, barely larger than the tools themselves, the individual pockets keep everything organized and, since they’re made out of fabric, they don’t weigh much. It’s easy to see if you’re leaving a wrench buried in the grass. Mine didn’t have to be nice, so I usually made them myself.  

So I launched the first version of Tashtego - the tool roll for your toiletries - on Kickstarter with huge success. 1,400 backers raised over $57,000 to make it a reality! I manufactured the products and shipped them around the world. 

People liked the product, but 1400 backers had lots of ideas for improvement.   So I hired a professional design firm and, together 15 of our most diehard fans,  we improved all the things we loved and added new features to solve the problems of the 1.0. 

Now, we’re ready to get the new, improved Tashtego to you and reinvent toiletry travel bags forever. 

  This project is promoted by Jellop, the ad tech power behind the best Kickstarters with 750+ successful Kickstarter projects with over $330MM raised between them. 

Risks and challenges

This is our second Kickstarter project. We’ve done our best to get ready for what we trust is another successful campaign. Our experience from our first campaign taught us a lot and has prepared us well for this one. However, the “best-laid plans of mice and men oft go astray”, as they say. Here are a few risks and challenges that we can think of:

We’ve produced a small run of samples and lined up and offshore volume manufacturing. However, factories can have on unforeseen setbacks. To mitigate this risk, we have people on the ground to enable instant communication.

Shipping an enormous production run can be daunting for a small team. We’ve partnered with a logistics and fulfillment company to help us get all the orders out. Early bird backers will get their products first, followed by all Kickstarter backers. Any other orders will be fulfilled after the campaign products ship.

Finally, we are based in Oakland. Earthquakes happen. No tsunamis (yet). Occasionally, our local basketball team may win some championship and back things up in all directions for miles. It’s a party - things may slow down at those times.

Our commitment to you is that we will handle unexpected issues with transparency and the best interests of you, our backers, first.
