Rated 3 out of 5 by LosAngelesMom Overly Complicated
I know I am in the minority here. But this bag seems overly complicated. I bought it for my son to use at sleepaway camp. But I ended up sending it back. Too many different compartments and whatnot. I can see this being a great bag for a frequent traveler.

My family sized organizer has lasted me 10 years and hundreds of road trips, both near and far. I prefer using my own shampoo and soap in hotels, and the family sized organizer allows me to carry full-sized bottles without a problem. It also is able to accodmodate all of my shaving necessities, plus several large bottles of cologne and after shave. I just purchased a large organizer to handle more.

Very pleased with traditional Bean high quality.
However the accessories shown in the catalogue and online (containers etc.) are NOT included.
The photo and description imply that they are.
A bit disappointing because Bean's is usually more careful when it comes to "details".

by Flamenkita Best Toiletry bag out there - Medium size
Even though I already have the small size (4 years old) of this product (look for my review on that one) I decided to go ahead and get the medium one using a 20% coupon, I went with the carbon flower print as I didn't like the other colors. The color is exactly as in the picture, it's beautiful!, to me it has this touch of simplicity and "chicness" without being too girly. Love it!
Even though it is a bit big for my travel needs I still think is the best toiletry bag out there for its features and compartments PLUS the 100% guarantee from LLBean.
I order my bag on a Tuesday night and it was on my front door on Thursday morning!!! What??!!!
For those of you who can't decide between the small or the medium size DO NOT go by what other people say they put in it, what works for one traveler might not meet the needs of another traveler. (I traveled throughout Southasia for 3 weeks with the small one and it was perfect, but this might NOT work for everybody.. you see?!)
I have attached pictures with the comparison of both sizes? hope it helps!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JHen75 exactly what I wanted!!
I had seen a few video reviews of this product on You Tube and wanted to buy it for a long time. With some upcoming travel plans, I went ahead and put it on my "to do" list and I am glad I did. I *LOVE* luggage and travel accessories so I am always looking for the next best product and I'd have to say this is it. It can hold so much stuff and still not be cumbersome. This would be the perfect size for any 1 person traveling for any length of time, I think. There is room for anything you could need or want on a trip and plenty of straps, dividers and pockets to keep it all organized. I am not a girly girl and don't particularly like those color schemes so I chose the carbon flower print (NO pink but still plenty feminine) and I love it. It was only delivered an hour ago, but I can't wait to pack it for my next trip!! Highly recommended and it will probably become my go to gift idea as well!!! :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by PanamaTraveller Replacement bag
I just purchased a new bag to replace the bag I bought 8 years ago. I bought the bag for travel in my motor home, hiking, boating and frequent international travel. The bag held up well. The zipped pockets were ample for razor, toothbrush, tooth paste, medications, etc. I am replacing the bag as the original was stolen from the rental car last year. I looked at other products and this one best met my needs. The exterior pockets were perfect for medication bottles, I could stick two in each. The removable mesh pouch held travel sized shampoo, soap and deodorants well and was nice to be able to take it into the shower and then let it air dry before returning it to the bag. I think the mirror is the only down fall but when compared to the mirrors in some of the rest areas and campsites, it was useful but still not great. The pocket on the flap was good for such things as small quick dry camping towel, but I used it for small flat items such as passport or blister pack medications. The material was rugged enough for the use I put it through and actually looked in great condition when it was stolen. I found that I packed more stuff into this bag than the standard shave kit I had in the military. I can't wait to get my new bag! Yes, it is pricey but in my estimation, well worth the money.

Rated 4 out of 5 by LLinFLA Great new colors
This bag is everything I would expect from LL Bean. And the monogram is perfect. The only thing is it's a little big for me. I would love, love these great new colors in the small toiletry bag.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DistanceSwimmer Best one yet
I bought this when another good brand toilet kit wore down, and this one is working out superbly. It has good shoulders--that is, it hangs well without to much center sag, as my former bag tended to do. It is well constructed and has ample pockets plus slots for toothbrushes, medicine tubes and other containers. I use the side pockets for items I like separated. I might have been able to get by with a medium, but I am glad I chose the large in case I want to add other items. My trips are usually one to three weeks.

by BeanLover83 The BEST Hygiene Bag!!!
I had been using my Marine Corps issued hygiene bag ever since I was honorably discharged 5 years ago and it was looking rather busted so I decided to invest in a civilian model. The LL Bean medium version is perfect! It's the best hygiene bag I have ever had. I traded in my USMC woodland digi pattern for the kiwi green color, which I LOVE! It screams civilian instead of olive drab! I don't wear makeup so I use this bag to carry small bottles of shampoo, toothpaste, deodorant, bug juice, lotion, a brush, electric toothbrush, and a razor. It is plenty of room for low maintenance women and travelers who pack light. If you are one who can't leave home without their entire medicine cabinet, invest in a larger size. For all others, go with the medium. I do love the kiwi color, but it is see-through as you can see in my picture. I wouldn't carry tampons or condoms in the front or side pickets if you don't want others to see you have them in there. Otherwise, this is a great product, a fun and bright color, and a total upgrade from my military issue! FYI... My husband is in the Navy and he has the medium version in black. He prefers it to his blueberry digi pattern issued squid version. We both LOVE these hygiene bags! They fit perfectly in any coffin rack on military ships, in locker rooms, while camping, etc... This is just an all around excellent hygiene bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by JRVA Toss it in
I am a guy who does a range of traveling from business trips to backpacking and this bag is perfect. I keep it fully stocked with my travel items and throw it into my duffle, backpack, suitcase, or car when I am ready to go. Its the perfect size for all of my essentials.
I carry a razor and travel size shave cream, toothbrush and paste, deodorant (full size), nail clippers, q tips, travel size cologne, bar of soap and liquid soap travel size, and a travel size gold bond and a simple comb. I could probably fit a few more items in if I really wanted to.
The hook is a great feature and I have used it to hang this on a shower curtain rod, door knob, tree limb and more. Having the mirror included is nice as well.
I would recommend a bigger size if you need a lot of stuff. My wife has a medium and a large for longer trips that holds all of her items.
I love leaving it stocked up and in my closet. I dont even think twice about having everything I need when I throw this in my bag.
