Thread: toiletries bag

    toiletries bag

    Okay, so this may seem like an odd thing to review, but you've got to bring your toiletries along. How do you do it? I've got this Rick Steeves bag. It's the 7" version. I think it was reasonable at about $15 and it has all the features I wanted in a camping toiletry bag. It has lots of little compartments and a few bigger ones too. The handle is nice and so is the hook for hanging. There's even a mirror included (supposedly shatter-proof) that you can either keep attached or remove. It also packs nice and small -- 8 X 7 X 3" and you can get them from www.ebags.com -- good company to deal with.

    My ex-wife and her mother were big fans of the freebie days at the cosmetics counters of the department stores at the mall. I wound up with a big black garbage bag full of makup bags and tote bags. I found a nice blue one that works just great for toiletries. I also have another one that I use for a tool bag and one for my chargers and laptop cables. And the tote bags work nicely for running up to the shower house.

    I have an almost identical bag to the one the OP has. Wife actually picked it up, and it's worked out great. The zip-out flap/hook thing works a trick in a camp shower, even works pretty good in our pop-up shower tent. Wife keeps all the medical supplies and stuff in it too.

    John and I have the same bags...we love them...carries most all you would want...and packs down small...since they only had one color where I got these I had our names monogramed on the front flap...don't think John would want to get all the way to the campground shower with the wrong bag... hahaha but the bages work great...I also have a ton of those free makeup bags...and I use them for all kinds of stuff encluding tool bag...

    for short trips, i use an old 1950's bank bag

    tough & has a strong zipper

    for extended adventures, i use an L.L. Bean bag like the one shown above

    i got my wife, & my granddaughter for H.S. graduation, an L.L.Bean bag in the LARGE size, which holds all the hair stuff too

    a friend uses one for his kitchen stuff and it works quite well w/ little bottles of condiments in the little pockets & utensils in the bigger ones

    thanks for sharing, so many of us forget to and that forces NOOBs to re-invent the wheel, way too often

    That was me too! When David first posted this I had the wife look at it and she told me of the many bags she had for me to use, so I just gave up. I was still using plastic bags until last year when the wife came across several back packs at a yard sale. I take one of the back packs when I pull the trailer and have the extra room for it. It's great for taking all your toiletries and a change of clothes to the shower.

    I use the same green shaving kit bag that I have used at home for years.

    Nothing as nice as an old claymore mine bandoleer from the good ol' days. Two pockets and a carrying strap. And it's free.
