Buyer’s Guide: A Fine Selection Of Men’s Wash Bags

The Christmas holidays are a distant memory and even though the sun is shining, summer holidays are still a long way away. But fingers crossed we can squeeze a little break in between now and then. If we’re not city breaking, then maybe we’ll be business tripping. Either way, it’s important to maintain the Highsnobiety lifestyle standards throughout all aspects of life. And this means that those see-through plastic zip lock bags you use at airport security just don’t cut it anymore. It’s time to upgrade your wash bag for something grown up and respectable.

Juggling a handful of different travel-sized toiletries, squeezing them into a weakened plastic bag you had to borrow off your housemate, and fumbling with the fastening before they all spill out and leak amongst the rest of your luggage anyway. Come on man, surely you’re too grown up for that. Take a look at this tasty line up of wash bags and invest in something that will enable you to become the man you want to be.
