I really enjoy packing. It’s the first sign of a new adventure awaiting me. I also light small, hearty containers that allow me to take everything I want from beauty creams to perfumes to insect repellents…that are durable, lightweight and indestructible.
Meet the Matador FlatPak travel toiletry bottle, one of many Matador travel products that rank in my top 10 travel must-haves. Not only do they save valuable space in my luggage, they are 3.5 times more compact than a standard bottle and 5X lighter. Matador products are made from welded Cordura, and a patented coating that doesn’t absorb water. Each bottle is designed with a large opening the accommodates liquids, pastes, and gels, that’s easy to fill and re-fill. There’s a neat snap loop that allows for easy labelling. FlatPak is sold individually or in a pack of three. Soap bar and toiletry cases also available.
Matador started in 2014 with a simple observation. While unwinding at a park in San Francisco, we noticed people sitting in the grass on their coats and hauling hefty blankets. We thought, there must be a better way. Soon thereafter we launched the Matador® Pocket Blanket- a waterproof seating surface that fits in a pocket. We knew we were onto something. Working out of a 10’ x 10’ foot San Francisco bedroom, we leveraged the success of the Pocket Blanket to develop a line of simple, thoughtful products designed for people on the go. Our love of travel and the outdoors inspired our focus on adventure travel. The more we traveled, the more opportunities we saw to apply our experience in materials and design to solve common travel challenges. One product at a time, we grew from the Pocket Blanket into a brand of ultralight travel gear.
