Spending three weeks traveling across the globe has given me a new appreciation for useful travel bags. Especially since we decided we would only bring one suitcase and one carry-on each.
(It was an excellent decision with the eight flights and ten buses/shuttles we carted our luggage in and out of during our trip.)
After spending some time getting to know the ins and outs of this new bag, I am happy to pass on my thoughts.

When I was first contacted, I had never heard of the brand so I wanted to look into them before furthering our communication. I was happy to see they had a great record with Amazon and their reviews were positive.
I was also impressed with their super fast shipping as I did not use Prime shipping.
Right away I liked the size. It’s small enough to fit nicely in my suitcase and large enough to hold everything I need.
As you can see, there are many little pockets for your things, which I love! My former bag had one large opening with no compartments. I was like a kid at Christmas filling my new bag. haha
Testing its Capacity
Steve and I normally travel light so this bag might or might not fit your personal needs but I filled it with what we would normally take and was pleasantly surprised to see everything fit!
What I filled in our bag was what my husband and I would normally take for a week-long excursion. However, for our three-week trip, there really wasn’t much more I would have added. This bag still would have filled our needs then.
The bag is packed pretty full, however, as you can see, I didn’t fill every space available.
All this fit inside the bag nicely and I still had a couple of pockets for my jewelry.
Pros and Cons
- It is made of a sturdy material but also lightweight.
- I like the honeycomb design.
- The toiletry bag comes in five colors. (Navy, Pink, Black, Purple, and Red.)
- Zippers open smoothly.
- There are pockets EVERYWHERE!
- The pockets are multiple sizes; perfect for storing my oils with my bigger items.
- It has the option to hang while open or closed.
- I can fit a full-sized shampoo/conditioner inside.
- It is waterproof. (If your closed bag falls in the sink while the water is running, the inside will have some water droplets but nothing that will damage anything.)
- The zippers don’t seem very hardy.
- It is not machine washable.
- When hanging open, my larger items are not held in place well, as you can see in my picture.
I was very happy with my new travel bag and am excited to use it on our next trip.

Does this look like something you could use? What is one feature your toiletry bag must have?
