Tripod 'Store +Go' Travel Container

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received a low value free gift from the manufacturer for posting this review. I was not required or compelled to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC 16 CFR, Part 255.



My husband takes preventative pills daily, without fail, and if we're traveling he brings them along.  The trouble with that is he puts them all in a re-purposed vitamin container, which makes it hard to get to what he needs when he needs it. When I say 'pills' I'm talking about his multi-vitamin, Fish Oil, CoQ, Same, Red Yeast Rice, Cholestoff, and whatever else is in there, those are just the ones I can think of off the top of my head. I'm telling you, he's got his own personal pharmacy in the Master Bath. Tripod Store, made by Sabi, has created a take-along pill box that has now replaced his repurposed container.


Created with three spacious slots to hold a variety of vitamins, including the big ones like the Fish Oil capsules, this little container is a beauty!



It folds up to about the size of three 9-volt batteries, which makes it easy to toss in my purse and bring along for when hubby needs it.  It's covered in sturdy, supple rubber, and has three rubber and hinged compartments.


You can see from the picture above that the compartments are nice and roomy, I've put an AA battery in there to demonstrate, since most people have seen one and are familiar with the size.  The pen cap is holding up the rubber cover.

The only beef I had about the product is that while each of the three compartments hooks in place tightly, you can only open it from one end. That means you have to have all three sections open to gain access to the section closest to the non-opening end.  It doesn't bother my husband in the slightest, and he's the one using it, so there you have it.

The Tripod Roll-up from Sabi is nice for what it was made for (carrying pills) but it would also be nice for carrying other little things you want to have at the tip of your fingers, or don't want to get lost.  The clip holds secure, so no worries about spills on an active day.

You can learn more about the Tripod Roll by visiting their website.

You can also visit them on Facebook, Twitter, and/or their blog.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Looks like an awesome item to have for medications. I like that it doesn't take a lot of room, because that is always a problem.

Does it have pill dividers so the pills can be separated?

That's a very unqiue design and I like that it's functional for so many things - pills, earrings, sewing kits, odds and ends.

Binky said...

It looks like it would be pretty useful.

This looks like it would be great for traveling. I always overpack Tylenol and stuff like that so this would be perfect!

Not only would this be great for traveling, but I think it would be great to store a few aspirin or whatnot in your purse without taking up a lot of room! What a wonderful product!

This is very cool, just what I need as I always lose small things like safety pins or my bobby pins..

April Mims said...

This is really cool and very handy for people that take various medications. It's always a pain to have to carry around the entire bottle or put a couple into baggies.

Anonymous said...

it's way more attractive then those daily little box containers too. That ugly thing plagues my kitchen counter

Toni Patton said...

This would be great for travel. I need to pick some up so I can take my ibuprofen with me easier.

That's a pretty neat little container. I don't take pills, but I'm sure with kids I could find a use for it.

I should get a few of these for vacation time!

I have lots of things as well I take like the fish oil, baby aspirin, etc so this would really work great for me as well. Thanks for the review

I seriously could have used this on my last trip to LA a few weeks ago. I like that it rolls up easily. Doesn't take up a lot of room.

Nana said...

The Tripod Roll looks like an interesting concept. I think I'd be more like you and not so crazy about it opening only on one end. It's definitely worth a look at...thanks for sharing!

mail4rosey said...

Oh my gosh, I had a dream last night that I was on a fabulous vacation and I lost my memory card. Oy! lol

That really is nice and roomy. My pill container is a struggle! I have to cram everything in there and the lid pops open.

(Terry) My Journey With Candida said...

That would hold all of my Hubs pills when we travel. I love that it folds up small enough to fit into his little bag he carries his tooth brush and other things in.

This seems like a really useful product. It looks nice also which means people are more likely to use it.

~ Noelle said...

that looks pretty nifty :)

Colette S said...

This does look like a neat container. I hope they take your suggestion and put separate openings for the sections. I can see how that would improve the product a lot.

Stefani @ MommyEnterprises.com said...

This looks handy. I would definitely use it for other things like you mentioned, like different size batteries for all my electronics.

Kenda said...

This looks like a great way to keep medications and vitamins for the whole family while traveling. I love how it rolls up so it doesn't accidentally open or take up too much space.
