If you take your grooming routine as seriously as we do, then a plastic bag through security just won’t cut it when it comes to taking toiletries abroad. A travel wash bag can be a simple but beautiful thing and we think getting one to match your style is an essential for any man.
Which is why we’ve scoured the internet for the best washbag offerings ahead of your spring/summer holidays. So from the practical to the luxurious, here’s the Best Men’s Travel Wash Bags for Summer 2019.
Fred Perry Twin Tipped Wash Bag
Fred Perry keeps things stylish this season with a wash bag take on the basic holdall. Presented in their signature ‘tipped’ styling, this washbag boasts a hardwearing synthetic leather design in a black colourway to give it an old school classic look.
Osprey Ultralight Washbag Zip
But if you’re a regular traveller, with work or otherwise, this well-designed and incredibly lightweight option from outdoor specialists Osprey could be a life-saver. Featuring three separate sections, the wash bag can be unfolded when you get to your destination. It’s got a small coat hanger for easy hanging and even a transparent compartment that doubles as a rip-off toiletries pouch.
Barbour Leather Wash Bag
John Lewis, £69.95
Pretty much every other luxury wash bag on the market comes in all-black, but if you’re looking for a subtle change-up, this sophisticated Barbour-made toiletries bag opts instead for a brown leather look. Crafted from durable yet luxurious leather, it features durable lining and a hardware trimmed-handle, as well as embossed logo branding.
Filson Ballistic Nylon Travel Pack
For something a little more rugged but no less stylish, we love this lightweight Travel Pack from American outdoor label Filson. Made with tear-resistant Ballistic Nylon and reinforced with Filson signature Rugged Twill across the base, it’s available in Rusted Red (as well in the image), as well as Dark Navy, Otter Green and Whiskey.
RAINS Wash Bag
For us, accessories are the best way for a man to incorporate a splash of colour into their attire. And very much in that mould is the Wash Bag by Danish label RAINS. Coming in a vibrant Yellow, it’s made from a smooth, waterproof fabric and features a pocket sleeve and one main compartment large enough to fit essential toiletries. If the Yellow is a little too much, however, it is also available in Black, Blue or Stone.
Lifeventure Wash Bag
Go Outdoors, £13.76
Perfect for backpackers on long trips, this wash bag from Lifeventure is a compact, yet substantial travel bag that makes it easy to set up a washroom anywhere. Constructed from durable ripstop nylon, there’s compartments for wet and dry gear, as well as rear zipped pockets to ensure your things are safe and well organised. There’s also a handy detachable mirror, tuck-away metal hanger and carry handle for real home-from-home comfort.
Another Scandinavian entry, we love this Necessaire Wash Bag from new Norwegian brand SWIMS. Traveling with you wherever you are going, the Necessaire is made from a sleek, durable and waterproof nylon, keeping all of your toiletries safe and secure. We love the pop of Orange of the zip!
