The 12 Best Dopp Kits For Travel 

Best Dopp Kits 00 Hero

It doesn’t take an expert jet-setter to know how inefficient and woefully misguided haphazardly tossing a loose assortment of toiletries into a larger suitcase is when traveling. Not only can grooming products hugely benefit from some basic storage and organization, but a separate carry solution also ensures that, should your toothpaste, beard oil, or shampoo open mid-trip, it won’t seep into the rest of your travel bag’s contents. For these reasons, dopp kits have increasingly become a bonafide travel staple, however, with so many different available models, it can be hard to even know where to begin when shopping. So, with this in mind, we’ve thoroughly scoured the space in order to highlight a handpicked array of the best dopp kits for travel.

The Best Dopp Kits For Travel

A Solid Toiletry Travel Companion

What Factors Should One Explore When Shopping For A Dopp Kit?

While on the surface, it may look like Dopp kits differ very little from model to model, however, the reality is that, there are actually a handful of finer points that should be taken into account when shopping for one. Below, we’ve broken down a few of the most crucial areas to think about before buying a new Dopp kit for travel. 

Video Review: The 7 Best Dopp Kits

If you’re looking to go deeper on the subject matter, be sure to check out our best dopp kits video on YouTube.

Primary Construction: Just like with regular backpacks or duffel bags, the overall quality and durability of a Dopp kit will primarily boil down to the materials used to craft its shell, as well as the construction technique — or techniques — used to piece that material together. While some manufacturers opt for ultra-rugged ballistic-grade shells, the truth here is that a Dopp really doesn’t need to exhibit the same level of strength or durability as the larger travel bag or suitcase that it will be carried in — though it never hurts. While discussing shell materials, it’s also worth mentioning that some Dopps have been further fortified through the addition of PU or DWR coatings. 

Secondary Materials: Alongside a Dopp’s shell construction, it’s also worth exploring the material used for the shell’s liner. Likewise, if a Dopp kit has internal pockets or dividers, it’s also worth looking into the materials used for these items as well. 

Hardware: In addition to primary and liner constructions, another area that hugely distinguishes the more premium Dopps on the market from their more budget-friendly counterparts is the type of hardware being used. This includes elements such as a Dopp’s zipper tracks, along with any buckles, hardware, or additional attachment points it may have. 

Size: While Dopp kits do tend to be fairly small — boasting just enough room to accommodate one’s grooming essentials – they can nonetheless vary in size and shape. What’s more, on top of offering Dopps in a variety of colors, some companies also sell the same Dopp kit in multiple sizes. 

Waterproofing: While Dopp kits don’t need to be able to withstand a complete submerging, they should be weather/water-resistant enough to shield the rest of your travel bag’s contents from damage should a grooming product accidentally open or explode while in transit. On the flip side of the coin, this same ability typically affords Dopp kits the ability to also protect its contents from outside rain or moisture. 

Integration: Though pretty much every Dopp kit on the market will fit into a regular backpack or piece of hard luggage, some have been designed specifically to be compatible with existing travel bags. Additionally, some Dopp kits feature elements such as MOLLE webbing that allow for easy attachment to all manner of other carry solutions. 

Organization: A Dopp kit’s job isn’t merely to store all of your toiletries but also to provide organization — a task that’s typically accomplished through the use of a series of pockets, slips, dividers, and loops for accommodating grooming supplies and other small items and travel essentials. 

Selection & Testing Process

How & Why We Got Hands-On With These Particular Dopp Kits

Best Dopp Kits Tested 01

The vast majority of the best Dopp kits on the market benefit from experience and knowhow their makers have obtained producing larger bags and carry solutions, so we began our search by first looking to some of our favorite backpack brands in order to get a sense of what was available. Once we’d reviewed this space, we started making our initial picks largely on the strength of each model’s size, materials, and features and amenities. From there, we began honing in on more specific details such as each dopp’s hardware and trim. Using these traits to guide our search, we then made our picks for the specific Dopp kits that we’d be testing. 

Once getting each Dopp kit in hand, we began exploring in model in depth, examining every Dopp’s construction, build quality, and overall fit and finish. From there, we kicked off the actual field-testing portion of our process in an effort to discover how each Dopp kit performed in the real world, looking into factors such as how well-designed each model’s internal organizational amenities are, the level of waterproofing offered, if the Dopp includes an element that allows it to be hung or suspended. Long-term testing also lead us to uncover how easily each Dopp can be cleaned. Lastly, with access to a myriad of different Dopp kits during our testing process, we eventually began exploring how well these Dopps were able to lend themselves to other uses and applications — such as carrying tech essentials or pieces of EDC gear — as this shined a light on the level of versatility offered by each dopp (which also furthers said Dopps’ value and bang for your buck).
