Best toiletry bags for men in 2023

The toiletry bag really took a hit after the TSA put their regulations on liquids in place back in the early aughts. It forced a lot of men to simply abandon their classic leather shave kits for an overstuffed Zip-loc bag. But there's more to a Dopp kit than a few bottles filled with 3.4 ounces of liquid, right? So why limit yourself to a ratty plastic bag to transport your grooming essentials—everything from your creams and pastes to your floss, nail clippers and drugs?

Official TSA regulations no longer require the quart-sized bag to be clear, although it's often advised to speed up the security screening process. But if you check your bags, or have Pre-Check status, then go ahead and upgrade to a grown-up toiletry bag. One that you can be proud displaying in your hotel's bathroom or even your friend's guest room. Not only will it be much more stylish, but it will be designed for organization and durability. The best ones are water-resistant, come with a good zipper and plenty of pockets. Some are designed to hang on the back of a door or towel rack (so you never have to unpack), while others are engineered to stay open and allow easy access to all your grooming gear and products. Depending on how often you travel and your personal style and budget, how much you want to invest in a bag is up to you, so we've organized them by airline class—but all have been vetted by the Valet. team and would serve you well, no matter your final destination.
