Owning a hanging wash bag is an absolute must if you are a frequent traveler. By simply throwing your toiletries into your luggage you are not only running the risk of not being able to access what you need, when you need it, but you will also find it difficult to organise all of your toiletries.
Let alone the fact that if your shampoo bottle leaks, it will ruin all of the contents in your luggage.
With a high quality wash bag, you are able to keep all of your grooming essentials neatly into one place so that you can access them whenever you need to in order to make sure that you look and smell your best at all times.
Whilst there are plenty of plain drawstring wash bags that are decent, they don’t offer much in terms of style or functionality.
Here are some of the things that we look for when assessing the wash bags;
What you may be surprised to learn is that there are actually plenty of stylish wash bags available that are versatile as well as practical. Here we have curated a list of the best hanging toiletry bags for you.
To start off with, we were really impressed with the look and feel of the Southern German leather that the exterior is made of. The interior is hand-finished using waterproof premium canvas. It not only looks stylish, but feels really high-quality too.
On the inside of the travel bag, you will find two detachable zipped compartments of different sizes which we found perfect for storing all of our travel sized toiletries.
The detachable compartments make it really convenient to take only the items you need into the wash room. In the morning, when you just want to take the toothbrush and toothpaste, you can just take the compartment which holds these items without taking the whole bag in.
We found this feature to be extremely beneficial when this wash bag is used between couples to store their toiletry products, since it is certainly large enough and has more than plenty of pockets for several products.
As well as this, there are 4 different pockets for storing items, as well as elastic hoops which were great for holding razors and toothbrushes.
The size of this wash bag is perfect; both folded and unfolded.
Whilst the bag is folded, it looks nice and smart - almost like a posh leather book cover. It is small enough to take up minimal space in your suitcase or backpack and unfolded gives you plenty of access to all of its pockets and lets you hang the bag on a clothes hanger for added convenience.
The waterproof inner lining was a really nice extra touch and hanging the travel bag was no problem at all. What made this travel bag stand out for us is the style and elegance that it offers.
You can see why The Luxury Trex bag just had to be the best on our list today.
Available in 5 different colours, this mens hanging wash bag has a built in smart hook which enables you to hang it on handles, doorknobs and bars and lock it with the attached rubber loop. In terms of quality, we were quite impressed with this toiletry bag from Travando.
What we particularly liked is the detachable bag and bottle set. It comes with 7 different leak proof bottles which are perfect for putting your own shampoos and shower gels in if you are unable to buy travel sized bottles.
Whilst these bottles are not the best you can buy so leaning on the cheap side, they're still practical.
In terms of space saving, this toiletry bag is decent.
It has 2 mesh pockets, 1 large zipper compartment, plus the detachable clear bag. We really liked the elastic loops on the inside of the bag which help you to keep all of your cosmetics securely in place. Made in Germany, this wash bag is waterproof and has a stylish honeycomb design on the material.
Overall this is a decent wash bag. It certainly does the job you need it to and does it reasonably well. It certainly isnt our top pick, but if you're on a budget or just want a cheap and cheerful bag, this is for you.
Next on our list is the wash bag by Höher. What we immediately noticed about this wash bag is the bigger than average size. If you only travel occasionally then this won’t make much of a difference, but if you are a frequent traveler then you will definitely appreciate the difference.
The bag is made from high quality PU leather and feels really nice to the touch. Something else that we liked about this one is the stylish lining that feels surprisingly thick. You can tell that a lot of thought has gone into the design in order to make sure that this product lasts.
The hook is stainless steel which looks stylish but is also really practical; you can easily hang the bag up in your hotel room so that you can easily access the mesh pockets on the inside. Another thing that we liked on the inside is the straps which hold your toiletries in place.
Our take on it is - it is a decent bag. Does what you need it to do. It doesnt look very appealing and I cant stand the mesh interior for this bag.
It is cheaper than our top pick, and for good reason - its just not as well made.
Hopefully you now have a much better idea of the type of bag that will be of most benefit to you and our best three choices have given you plenty to think about.
