Summer travel is back again. If you’re one of the thousands of people who have booked a trip for this season, you might be a little out of practice when it comes to packing. After all, it may have been a couple of years since you’ve taken a lengthy vacation, and remembering how to perfectly “Tetris” your clothes into your carry-on is a whole process. And while organizing each pair of shoes so that they lay flat is certainly an achievement, some of the best toiletry bags are here to simplify storing all of your skin care, grooming goods and more.

Toiletries — from face wash and makeup to your toothbrush and razor — tend to be bulky and oddly shaped, so figuring out how to organize everything can quite a challenge. That’s where the perfect toiletry bag comes in. Whether you’re looking for a compact carryall to throw in your duffle bag or work or school backpack, we’ve rounded up some of the best toiletry bags for women and men to take you from a weekend getaway to a month-long excursion, from makeup-friendly hanging carryalls to leather dopp kits and more.
