As one of the more underrated luggage essentials, the humble wash bag often gets overlooked and replaced by the likes of a clear plastic airport bag or, even worse, a leftover supermarket carrier bag (sacrilege). Yet, with such a great variety of bags available on the market, there’s zero excuse to subject your toiletries to such treatment.
A wash bag that’s equal parts stylish and functional should live alongside your suitcase, weekend bag, and gym bag as another trusty travel companion – gone are the days when you’d survive on your toothbrush and toothpaste.
When you’re not using it to perk up your packing experience, you can keep it in your bathroom to help with some cabinet storage or counter organisation. Just make sure to keep it stocked with all of your grooming go-tos so you can throw it in your case at the drop of a hat for any last minute trips that crop up.
From minimal, functional options by luggage brands Away and Horizn Studios, to more fashion forward designs by the likes of Burberry and FPM Milano, we’ve put together an edit of the best that will suit every taste and budget.

Rains Weekend Wash Bag
Cut from their signature waterproof rubberised fabric, Rains’ wash bag is true to its minimal Scandi brand identity.
With a four litre volume, there’s ample space for all of your grooming goods, and when you’re not using it to its full capacity, side buckles compress the size so you’ll be able to fit it into even the smallest of carry-on suitcases.
