Pocket Info
Deodorant & Razor Pocket - A mesh pocket with a curved zipper for easy access. It fits all deodorant stick sizes. There is room for a razor and whatever small items you can pack inside (i.e. contact case). (9" Tall x 4" Wide)

Water Resistant Toothbrush & Toothpaste Pocket
- A waterproof toothbrush & travel size toothpaste pocket. This pocket is solely for your toothbrush in order to keep your toothbrush from gathering debris & from rubbing up against anything but your pearly whites. You can fit electric toothbrushes! (9” Tall x 2” Wide)
*Pro Tip! We’ve also found this pocket is VERY useful as a very convenient toothbrush holder while traveling. While hanging your open toiletry bag, leave this pocket partially open to let your toothbrush air dry and prevent it from falling on that gross hotel floor. 

Deep Mesh Pocket - Pack these how you’d like! We were able to easily fit items like beard oil, q-tips, mustache wax, flossers, and finger nail clippers. (4.5” Tall x 5.5” Wide)

Deep Water Resistant Pocket - Store your liquids here to ensure that you don’t arrive to your destination with a shampoo explosion all over everything. Fit items like pomade, shampoo, 2 oz + travel liquid containers, cologne/perfume, etc...Fits TWO of our specially designed 3 oz Silicone Bottles. (4.5” Tall x 5.5” Wide)

Large Outer Pocket w/Soft Fleece Lining - This pocket spans the length of the back of the pack and has a soft fleece lining to protect valuables, a small first aid kit, or other travel items. Store your phone, watch, passport, cords, etc. (7.75” Tall x 5.5” Wide)

Secret Small Pocket -
Well I guess this pocket isn’t a secret anymore is it? This pocket is inside & flush against the Electric Razor/Taller Items Pocket. It can store rings or other small items that you want to keep from sliding around in one of the bigger pockets. Condoms fit real great. (3” Tall x 3.5” Wide)

Stowaway Adjustable Strap with Aluminum G-Hook
- It’s just convenient to hang your toiletry bag. We built a special pocket on the back of the toiletry bag with a stowaway strap with what’s called a g-hook. The g-hook keeps a low profile and allows you to hook this bag onto anything. It’s stowaway pocket sits behind the large outer pocket to maximize storage space and stay hidden. Now your toiletry bag can hang anywhere or lay flat. (Strap is 16” Long. Pocket is 3.75” Tall x 6” Wide)

What is the difference between the Explorer SLIM™ & Explorer PLUS™?
The Explorer PLUS™ is for packing more, the Explorer SLIM™ is for packing light. Primarily, the sizing & pockets are different.
SLIM: 1.5 Liters
PLUS: 3 Liters

How do I hang up the bag?
There is an included, hidden hang strap on the back of the bag on the top you can use to hang up the bag anywhere!

If I buy some of your soft 3oz liquid bottles bottles also, how many fit in the SLIM™?
Two of our bottles nicely fit in the Explorer SLIM's deep liquid pocket. (Most liquid bottles that fit this pocket are 2oz because of the pocket size so we made custom bottles to perfectly fit our Explorer SLIM bag to use every bit of space.

Love the shoe bag!

This bag worked great on a 2 week backpacking trip to the Alps. Lightweight, durable, easy to use. Even my hiking boots fit, and when using for my lightweight walking around town shoes, left room to spare for odds and ends of laundry. Great product!


Hi Richard! That sounds like such an awesome trip!! We're so glad you were able to take our gear with you! -Caitlin

Well thought out slim bag

Just returned from first 3 night business trip with this bag. Good toiletry bag. somehow "Tartis" like (bigger on inside than outside). Plenty of space and organized space. Well thought out.

Slim explorer

Gotta say this, after trying so many toiletry bags Hands down the slim it’s exactly what i was looking for, its compact organized durable well made, I travel for leaving I literally live in my suitcase and toiletry bag is something super important for me, didn’t want anything bulky or not having organized interior the slim is just perfect for me, it’s my second purchase since first one was either lost or stolen not sure. Things I would like to see maybe more colors including dark camo or coyote with black, orange and black and also upgraded zipper. Overall its it’s worth every penny I would definitely buy it over and over. Not to mention their customer service is great very professional. Thank you guys !

Amazing for its size!

This works out perfectly for what I need. It's always a satisfying feeling knowing that everything has a home. When I open it up, I know exactly where everything is and don't have to dig for what I need.

Hi Ryan! That is so great!! Thanks for sending that picture of how you pack your bag! -Caitlin

It was compact & has nice pockets. However it would be really beneficial if you had a clear plastic on one side so u can show the tsa the contents of the items. Like they want you to put liquids in clear plastic quart size bag so it is visible going thru X-rays. It would prevent the hassles of transferring the liquids to another bag!


Hi June! I LOVE this idea!! I will have to pass it on to the rest of our team!! Thanks so much for your support. :) -Caitlin
