One of the oldest pieces of gear that I still carry with me on overnight trips is a portable travel toothbrush, called The Toob. It’s a completely self-contained toothpaste and toothbrush system that lives in my bear bag.
It’s quite simple really. It’s a plastic tube that breaks into 3 pieces. The middle piece holds a sawn-off toothbrush. The bottom piece holds a small tube of toothpaste that you fill from the bottom, and slides inside the middle piece. The top piece is a cap that covers the toothbrush and keeps it from getting dirty. It has a small hole at the top that helps the toothbrush dry out when not in use.
When you run out of toothpaste, you simply refill the tube. Similarly, when the brush gets worn out, you can also replace it by buying a set of spare brushes.
I’ve owned mine for eight years now and it comes with me when I backpack or travel on business. It’s perfect!
