Hidden Compartments: The 20 Best Dopp Kits For Men

The uncultured might be content to throw their toiletries in a ziplock bag and hope for the best, but the discerning gentleman knows that a good dopp kit is a sound investment. Sure, a dopp kit is a particularly private piece of luggage, one that only you, an intimate companion, and maybe a surly airport security guard will ever really see — but a true mark of style is an attention to even the smallest detail. The right toiletry bag is not only functional, but it adds a certain flair to your daily grooming rituals. Your dopp kit is, first and foremost, for you, so toss aside the ziplock bags and treat yourself.

Herschel Chapter Travel Kit Kingston

Herschel Chapter Travel Kit Kingston

For the combination of price and style, Herschel really can’t be beat. Their Kingston dopp kit has interior organizers to keep your combs separate from your clippers; the exterior, meanwhile, features a bold, beachy print, making it the perfect choice for a weekend getaway by the water. A perfect mesh of functionality and flair. [Purchase: $25]

Topo Designs Dopp Kit

Topo Designs Dopp Kit

Topo Designs produces quality bags with a modern-yet-retro camping aesthetic. This compact dopp kit makes travelling light a breeze, and the sturdy wrist strap means that all your toiletries stay firmly on hand when you at last drag yourself away from the campfire, after perhaps a few too many beers, to complete your nightly ablutions. [Purchase: $29]

Herschel Royal Travel Kit

Herschel Royal Travel Kit

Herschel hits it out of the ballpark again with their Royal travel kit. A slightly more simplistic take on the toiletry bag than the Chapter kit, the Royal is nevertheless just as functional and stylish. It comes in a variety of hues, but I recommend the bolder, eye-catching colors. [Purchase: $29]

F1 Spacepak Mini Toiletry

F1 Spacepak Mini Toiletry

What was that about bold, eye-catching colors? Bright orange threatens to be garish, but somehow this toiletry bag makes orange work, pairing it nicely with a white, minimalist graphic design. [Purchase: $30]

Penfield Danbury Black Palm

Penfield Danbury Black Palm

Dark florals are in. Treat your toiletries right by lovingly encasing them in palm leaves and pastel blooms. Sure, you can go for a plain navy Danbury, but as with bold colors, bold prints are what I really recommend. [Purchase: $34]

Topo Designs x Woolrich Dopp Kit

Topo Designs x Woolrich Dopp Kit

For an extra ten bucks, you can upgrade from your standard Topo dopp kit to one with a Woolrich twist. The wool adds a classier touch, and also makes this toiletry bag seasonally ambiguous, so it’s a good choice no matter what time of year you go travelling. [Purchase: $39]

J Crew Suolo Canvas and Leather Pouch

J. Crew Suolo Canvas and Leather Pouch

“Suolo” is Italian for “soil,” which feels appropriate given this dopp kit’s rugged aesthetic. The great thing about this bag is its versatility. Need a toiletry bag? You’re covered. Need a pouch for your phone and other digital miscellany? Suolo’s got you. Just make sure you’re organized enough so that when you reach for a toothbrush, a toothbrush is what you find, and not a handsome rock collection. (I’m not sure who would need to bring a rock collection on their travels, but hey, we don’t judge.) [Purchase: $48]

J Crew Abingdon Travel Kit

J. Crew Abingdon Travel Kit

Now we’re getting into the more elaborate dopp kits. If you’re the type who can’t stand the thought of your body wash bumping elbows with your pomade, then this double pouched toiletry bag is for you. [Purchase $58]

DSPTCH Dopp Kit

DSPTCH Dopp Kit

Speaking of elaborate dopp kits, this is perhaps the most well-organized bag on the list. What it lacks in stylish exterior it more than makes up for in functionality. If you have a number of small toiletry items, and you simply must have everything in its proper place, then this dopp kit, with its plethora of compartments and loops for securing items, is the way to go. [Purchase: $62]

Owen Fred Hey Handsome Shaving Kit Bag

Owen & Fred Hey Handsome Shaving Kit Bag

When I said that your dopp kit was first and foremost for you, this Owen & Fred bag was at the forefront of my mind. As you unpack your toiletries for your morning shave, you are greeted with the message “HEY HANDSOME” in a well-chosen typeface. Okay, it’s a bit of an ego pat, but sometimes you need someone, or something, to give you a little positive affirmation. [Purchase: $68]

Will Leather Goods Wax Coated Canvas Travel Kit

Will Leather Goods Wax Coated Canvas Travel Kit

Waxed canvas develops a great patina over time, so if you’re looking for a toiletry bag to travel with you everywhere and to wear in a way that reflects those travels, this bag is a good choice. [Purchase: $70]

Dopp Veneto Traditional Framed Kit

Dopp Veneto Traditional Framed Kit

This Dopp brand dopp kit is an absolutely classic take on the toiletry bag. Simple and sleek, and made of sturdy leather, this bag is appropriate no matter where you go, and it will hold up no matter where you take it. [Purchase: $76]

Filson Small Travel Kit

Filson Small Travel Kit

This small toiletry bag is perfect if you’re a light packer and just looking to take the essentials. It’s made of a soft material so that it’s easy to roll up tightly and stow away when not in use. [Purchase: $85]

Billykirk No 258 Waxed Canvas Zipper Dopp Kit

Billykirk No. 258 Waxed Canvas Zipper Dopp Kit

Billykirk is another good option if you’re looking for a waxed canvas toiletry bag. The drab olive color gives it a military feel, suggesting perfectly organized minimalism. [Purchase: $88]

T Anthony Toiletry Case

T. Anthony Toiletry Case

The bold leather trim on this dopp kit makes it a great mix of casual and formal. If you’re looking for something a bit classier than the standard canvas, but you’re shying away from the formality of the full leather toiletry bag, then this bag is a good compromise. [Purchase: $95]

Ted Baker Howayou Wash Bag

Ted Baker Howayou Wash Bag

It may be gray and made of nylon, but the contrasting blue stitching provides just the right amount of personality to save this dopp kit from dullness. And the nylon does give the bag a modern edge not found in the rugged waxed canvas or traditional leather dopp kits. [Purchase: $95]

Killspencer Dopp Folio 2 0

Killspencer Dopp/Folio 2.0

Simple, sleek, functional. Like the Suolo pouch, this dopp kit can do double duty, but, unlike the Suolo pouch, it brings versatility to a formal level. Pack it full of toiletries, or use it to carry your tablet to a business meeting. [Purchase: $189]

Barneys New York Toiletry Case

Barneys New York Toiletry Case

This dopp kit has a classier take on olive drab since it’s made of calfskin instead of waxed canvas. The olive combined with the simple silhouette makes for an unassuming toiletry bag that nevertheless suggests a certain elegance. [Purchase: $200]

Hard Graft Private Dopp Kit

Hard Graft Private Dopp Kit

This bag’s silhouette — flat and wide, not tall and thin — makes it stand out from other dopp kits. Hard Graft is serious about their materials, as you can tell from the detailed descriptions on their site (http://www.hardgraft.com/pages/materials-and-manuals), so if you’re looking for a particularly high quality dopp kit, look no further. [Purchase: $229]

Brooks Brothers Leather Travel Toiletry Case

Brooks Brothers Leather Travel Toiletry Case

Okay, perhaps you can look a little further for high quality. This Brooks Brothers dopp kit might be the priciest item on the list, but it is without a doubt also the classiest. It takes the traditional look that we saw in the Dopp brand toiletry bag to a whole new level. [Purchase: $298]
