Best Toiletry Bags For Travel

After reviewing nothing but toiletry kits this week I am thinking about upgrading my trusty 5+ year old REI Shower Kit with one of these new fangled bags. Whether you’re looking for a compact, rugged, waterproof toiletry kit or a way to organize your full-size toiletries for a month-long trip, there’s a toiletry kit made just for you.

Hanging styles are great since they don’t take up valued counter space and all the contents can easily be viewed so you can find what you need faster without that whole black hole bottom of the bag phenomenon. Non-hanging styles are also nice and tend to be smaller and more compact – great for weekend trips and a for space conscious travelers.

Here are some of the best toiletry bags on the market for different styles of travelers:

Toiletry Bags For the Everything-But-the-Kitchen-Sink Travelers

Eagle Creek Bombshell Toiletry Kit – Spacious enough for an array of full-size toiletries, the Eagle Creek Bombshell Toiletry Kit is perfect for women who pack too much. The large main compartment has plenty of pockets to keep you organized and a thin zip top compartment is great for your your toothbrush and cosmetic brushes. If you need a quick touch up, there’s a built-in mirror. Plus it is totally adorable and can match your Eagle Creek Packing Cubes.

Sea to Summit Hanging Toiletry BagSea to Summit’s Hanging Toiletry Bag lets you travel with everything you could possible need and more. Plenty of internal pockets keeps your goods organized and the mesh design lets you know where all your items are even when the pouches are zipped closed. Made from Sea to Summit’s super light and durable Ultra-sil fabric, this bag not only packs it in, but will hold up to whatever crazy adventures you find yourself in.

Toiletry Bags For the Space Conscious Travelers

The North Face Base Camp Travel Canister – A sporty toiletry bag for adventure travelers, The North Face Base Camp Travel Canister is made from super durable water and abrasion-resistant fabric. The bag has one main compartment and some internal mesh pockets to provide organization for your smaller goods. A daisy chain exterior lets you hang the bag from anywhere.

Eagle Creek Pack-It Slim –  The perfect choice for minimalist travelers, the Eagle Creek Pack-It Slim has all the great features of a hanging bag, but folds up nice and slim to easily stash in your pack. When closed the toiletry kit looks really compact, but then it folds out to reveal three pockets, a travel mirror, and a swivel hook for versatile hanging options.

Toiletry Bags For Simpleton Travelers

REI Shower Kit – If all you need is a simple pouch to toss your toiletry items, the REI Shower Kit is your bag. The REI Shower Kit lacks the features of all the other bags mentioned so far, but its simpleness is attractive. A main compartment holds your toiletries and an exterior zippered compartment provides easy access to your smaller items. The bag is made from durable and water-resistant materials and it weighs only 6 ounces.
