We know that packing can be a struggle, especially if you’re trying to fit all of your toiletries into hand luggage to meet airport regulations. Whether you’re a simple toothbrush and aftershave guy, or have a few more products in your daily routine, we’ve picked a selection of the best men’s wash bags to cater to your every need.
Waterproof materials may seem obvious, but not all bags come with an easy wipe-clean outer material, so it depends just how much you’re looking for functionality over aesthetics. There are some super stylish toiletry bags on the market that look smart and professional for work trips, but if you’re just looking for a men's wash bag that is cheap and cheerful to take on a weekend away with the lads, we’ve got you covered there too. So whether you want lots of pockets and handles, mesh or clear pouches, take a look at which wash bags have cleaned up in our buying guide.
