Luxury Men’s Toiletry Bags

A men’s toiletry bag is an essential grooming staple for last-minute weekend getaways, weeklong vacations and staycations at cool boutique hotels in your own city. The best ones are durable, roomy and sleek enough to look upscale while you’re in a hurry.

Toiletry bags must hold everything from toothbrushes to shaving cream, and even a hairdryer. They also have to be compact and fit into your carry-on or weekender. The best ones have plenty of pockets, elastic organizers and a handle for hanging, while others also include a mirror for quick touches on the go. Some are made from a waterproof fabric for easy cleaning, and others are designed to keep your grooming products organized and ready for use.

While there are many different types of toiletry bagsĀ Luxury Men’s Toiletry Bags: Explore Here, the classic travel-friendly option is a rectangular case with a top zipper and a carrying handle. The best ones are sturdy and made from durable materials, including leather. Some are also water-resistant, like the Mack Weldon model that we tried, and have a no-slip rubberized bottom that you can rub clean should there be any spills or leaks. This particular bag has a small opening to get at each pocket but is large enough for most bottles of shampoo, body wash and lotion, plus extras like razor blades and cotton swabs.

Other men’s toiletry bags are made of a more luxurious material, including calf- or lambskin. Those are great for the gentleman who wants to feel sophisticated while getting ready for a day in town, or for those who like the feel of soft and supple materials that develop a beautiful patina over time. For example, Common Projects offers a tubular calf-leather design that’s surprisingly roomy despite its simple silhouette. This one has two zippered and four elastic holders for bottles and grooming tools.

Another option is a black leather dopp kit with a handle at each end of the bag. This design is a nod to the military-style toiletry bags that were popular with soldiers in the 20th century. It has a side pocket that holds a mirror and can lay flat when unzipped to maximize space inside the main compartment. It’s a bit bulkier than our slimtest picks but still fits most items without causing any overhang.

If you’re going to bring a lot of toiletries, you may want to consider a clear bag. This will help speed things up at the airport by allowing you to take your full-size grooming products out of your checked luggage and into the security line without having to remove them from their original packaging. However, if you’re only packing a few items or are traveling by car, this might not be necessary.

While there are many options for men’s toiletry bags, we recommend considering a streamlined style to save space in your luggage or backpack. Narways’ streamlined travel dopp kit is an excellent choice, as it has side pockets that open out to reveal rows of elastic loops for storing your items and keeping them organized.
