11 Dopp Kits To Help You Travel Like a Civilized Human
From supple leather to water resistant performance nylon
The dopp kit is often overlooked with regards to its role in the travel process.
We concern ourselves with handsome and versatile luggage to a) make sure we can safely take everything with us that we want to take with us and b) that people can see from our choice in luggage what great taste we have.
If that sentiment rings true, then we should theoretically be paying similar attention to our dopp kits, the piece of luggage meant to house the grooming products meant to ensure that we can look as put together as our choice of luggage suggests we are. Plus, it’s home to things that actually go inside your body (toothbrush, q-tips, etc.) so it had better be quality.
We’re of the opinion that quality dopp kits can be found across a wide range of prices and materials. Below, our 11 choices in ascending order of price:
Bond Travel Gear Escapade Gear Pouch
This kit has a much flatter orientation than your typical toiletry bag, meaning that it can be fully opened and laid flat, allowing for much easier access to your things. Also water resistant.
Aer Dopp Kit
Aer makes great bags, and their dopp kit is no exception. With an interesting grey fabric exterior, water resistance and a separate toothbrush pocket, it’s a great option.
Away Dopp Kit
The selling point on this one is the water-resistant performance nylon that gives it an incredibly slick look. Simple and practical.
Bellroy Classic Pouch
Made from woven polyester, this is a slight tweak on the classic dopp kit form and allows for wider unzipping and easy packability due to it’s slightly smaller size.
Peak Design Dopp Kit
One of the more versatile dopp kits in the collection, this bag can sit upright or be hung from a stowable hook. Plus it’s got internal sections galore, including a magnetically-sealed toothbrush pocket.
Boundary Port Kit
This one is great because it has two separate compartments: one for dry goods and one for travel sized liquids, keeping everything safe should any shampoo explosions occur.
Study Brother Duck Canvas Dopp Kit
The first of the “handsome” vs “techy” dopp kits on the list. This one features hand-waxed duck canvas and a brass YKK zipper.
Briggs & Riley Baseline Deluxe Hanging Toiletry Kit
This is a big boy. Made from ballistic nylon and meant to be hung from the back of the bathroom door, it has numerous compartments and almost looks like a miniature briefcase.
Hook & Albert Black Twill Travel Dopp Kit
A triumvirate of compartments rules this kit, with a main one in the center and one on each side. It’s made from a custom lightweight twill and is lined with waterproof nylon to protect against spills.
Filson Travel Kit
The dopp kit version of their duffle bag, which is maybe the sturdiest bag I’ve ever owned. Featuring heavy duty twill, leather and a heavy duty brass zipper, this one will last for decades. They also have a less heavy duty version for $55.
Moore & Giles Fine Leather Mini Dopp Kit
Just a flat-out good-looking leather dopp kit. It looks like something your dad or grandfather would have owned.
