The Limitations of Most Travel Containers: Navigating Air Travel with a Carry-On & Repeatabl

Traveling with a carry-on has become increasingly popular due to its convenience and cost-effectiveness. However, one challenge that frequent travelers often encounter is finding the right-sized containers for their favorite skin care products. In this blog post, we'll explore why the bigger travel containers don't work well when flying with a carry-on and how Repeatabl offers a smart solution to this problem.

1. Excessive Product Quantity:

When packing for a short trip, you don't need a full 3.4 ounces of each skin care product. Most of us only use 1-2 pumps of our favorite products once or twice a day.  Larger travel containers often result in carrying excessive amounts of product that go unused, taking up valuable space in your limited quart-sized bag. Repeatabl offers a more efficient approach by providing six pods, each holding 1 teaspoon of product. With Repeatabl, you can bring just the right amount for your trip, reducing waste and maximizing your carry-on packing potential.

2. Space Constraints:

A quart-sized bag has limited space, and larger travel containers quickly consume that valuable real estate. It becomes a challenge to fit all your favorite skin care products within the restricted size limitations. Repeatabl, with its compact and modular design, allows you to make the most of your quart-sized bag. The pods securely attach to a base tray with magnets, optimizing space utilization and leaving room for other essential items.

3. TSA Compliance:

TSA regulations require liquids, gels, and aerosols to be in travel-sized containers of 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or less per item, all fitting in a single quart-sized bag. Larger travel containers exceed these limitations and must be placed in checked baggage, which can be inconvenient or result in additional fees. Repeatabl is TSA friendly, as each pod is perfectly sized to meet TSA requirements and eliminate waste, giving you peace of mind during security checks.

4. Labeling and Identification:

Another issue with larger travel containers is the lack of proper labeling and identification. Labels often peel off, making it difficult to identify the contents of each container. With Repeatabl, this concern is addressed. Repeatabl comes with pre-printed labels for common skincare products and blank labels for customization. Additionally, the pods have corresponding lids with space for labeling, making it easy to identify and locate your desired products.

5. Convenience and Ease of Use:

Repeatabl goes beyond solving the limitations of larger travel containers. The built-in spatula under the trays ensures sanitary product application and ease of use. No more messy fingers or searching for applicators while on the go. With Repeatabl, your skincare routine becomes streamlined, hassle-free, and more enjoyable.


Traveling with a carry-on requires careful consideration of the products you bring and how to optimize space within the restrictions. The limitations of bigger travel containers become apparent when trying to adhere to TSA regulations and maximize packing efficiency. Repeatabl offers a brilliant solution by providing travel-sized pods that fit perfectly within the quart-sized bag, eliminating waste, and allowing you to bring your favorite products without compromising space or convenience. Upgrade your travel organization with Repeatabl and experience the freedom of packing light while having all your essential skincare products readily available.
