    I have a small bag that I use to carry a Bluetooth speaker, sunnies, USB battery pack, phone windscreen mount, stubby 26650 light and some other small misc items. It is beginning to fall apart, and I want a decent replacement. I would prefer that it isn't tactical (molle etc).

    The existing bag is about 9" x 4" x 6". See picture attached. The single carry handle at the end is really handy. An inch larger in 1 or 2 dimensions wouldn't hurt, but definitely no smaller.

    What do you suggest?[​IMG]

    Another toiletry bag since this one works so well for you, but maybe in a different type of material.
    Red Oxx makes some pretty bombproof gear, and they have a shave kit.
    Another option may be packing cubes that have a handle on them.
    Totally in another direction might be what I call a "bank deposit bag"
    These are pretty tough, can usually be found at Staples and might work for you

    AlphaOneNiner has a toiletry bag that may work? Also check cargo-works?

    Yeah I have been meaning to buy one of those red oxx shave bags for a while.

    Another thing that might fit the bill is a Goruck field pocket or dopp kit.

    If you're looking for a simple bag with those dimensions the Sportube Gear Paks are light nylon but mine have seen a fair bit of abuse (although not daily use). The smaller ones are only available (iirc) in a multi pack with their big brother, but this can be had for around $20 in UK (Amazon have sold them way cheaper in the past). The three bags are sized as follows:
    • Small: 8" x 6" x 5"
    • Medium: 12" x 8" x 5"
    • Large: 11" x 17" x 5"
    As I say, the nylon is a bit thin but, if you can get them cheap enough, they are good bags (all with handles iirc).

    After my all-leather Dopp bag just become too cumbersome after using it all those years, I now use this after one of my underlings convinced me to approve the "req" for the purchase of a dozen for our tech cables. It is much lighter and narrower. I prefer leather but this new fabric has impressed me.

    I use to use bag that I could hang from the door. I stopped after I left it in a Hotel room one trip. I switched to two Lock and Lock Containers. Waterproof and tough.

    If you can still order it, Kifaru XSmall Duffle....same basic shape and demensions(maybe smaller), same handle design, but just one compartment with no organization. Solid colors wouldn't be tactical. I have one. Once you buy Kifaru they will keep it repaired forever. Seems like right now you can only order size Large duffels, but I don't know what's in the works.

    There's also the SpecOpsBrand Pack Rat......some of the best gear made in terms of durability, but expensive....$50 or more but deals can be had on Amazon. The pack rat isn't really tactical in solid colors and has plenty or organization on the inside. One of the most useful and versatile pieces I have and from an amazing company as well.

    It's been brilliant tough as old boots also have a slightly bigger version for family get aways

    Look at the Op/Tech Accessory Pack. It comes in two sizes with padded internal dividers that can be configured to your liking. The sides are rigid to protect your items. I have them and use them to transport electronics.

    I have a Spec-Ops Pack Rat also and can vouch for its quality and smart design. I've seen many less-costly copies you can easily find. I bought mine when they cost a lot less than they do now.

    You could alternately go with a makeup bag for even more organization. Look at ebags for those.
