Toiletry bag camping style

Let’s take the toiletry bag as an example.  For most people, these are small bags to hold a few basic toiletries during a trip or a weekend away.  They are often matching with other pieces of luggage and might have a compartment or two.

The Maxpedition Lightweight Toiletry Bag is a specialist piece of equipment for serious outdoor fans.  The bag comes from the Advanced Gear Research range from Maxpedition and is a low profile, tactical wash bag that can hang via a garment hook within the tent or through a buckle connector.  The bag has a main compartment with a two-way zipper as well as two zipped pockets, four sleeve pockets and elastic keepers.  Within it is a shatter resistant mirror that comes with a hook and loop backing and a carry-on pouch for liquids that is completely detachable and measures 9 x 6 inches.

As well as being practical in terms of the compartments and storage, the bag is also made with abrasion and water resistant 500D Hex Ripstop nylon fabric and has a skin friendly Nylon seatbelt weaving. This makes for a tough and practical bag to store essentials that will handle being used for any outdoor experience.
