Trust me. I didn’t know what a Dopp kit meant either. It’s simply a fancy way of saying a toiletry and grooming accessories bag. This fact only reminds me that I should never make fun of people who participate in that “I was this old when…” meme floating around the web.
I also didn’t realize that the Dopp kit was invented by a German immigrant named William Doppelt, who created and popularized the first toiletry case. But the use of Dopp kits didn’t kick into high gear until the American military issued them to soldiers during the second world war.
But now that I know and have been immersed in the world of searching out the best men’s Dopp kit in the world, I’ve come to understand that they come in a myriad of material options, sizes and sport different features. Some Dopp kits are made of leather, while others are made of nylon or canvas. Some have leak-resistant interiors, while some are meant to hang, and others still have a handle. Some even come with locks, cause you know, who wouldn’t want to lock up all their precious toiletries and toothpaste?
While Dopp Kits make great holiday gifts, they’re often used in travel situations, and while at present writing, not much of that is going around, I’ve learned another thing about Dopp kits. They’re a sort of write of passage for men, at least as far as grooming essentials go. It’s very likely that before you ever own a proper Dopp kit, you make do with packing your toiletries nilly willy and then regret having that toothpaste explode in your overnight bag.
So if you think you’ve packed everything in a neat and tidy way, the missing ingredient may be a great Dopp kit. It’s your gateway to keeping all of your grooming essentials, like your beard trimmer, nose & ear hair trimmer, wrapped up in a small, easy to carry bag and give you the opportunity to groom in style. After all, if you’ve just spent the night at your lady friend’s place, the second last thing you want to be pulling out is some sort of zip lock bag with your toothbrush in it. You’re a stylish man, now act like it. Here are 23 of the best and most stylish Dopp kits you can get your hands on.

Between their fantastic backpacks, phone cases, and wallets, this is a company that knows how to make some pretty amazing EDC products. And while I wouldn’t classify a Dopp Kit as an everyday carry item, it truly didn’t surprise me to realize that Bellroy makes one of the most popular men’s toiletry bags available.

This makes for a perfect travel toiletry bag for every man that knows space may be limited.

7. Harry’s Toiletry Bag
If you’re a fan of podcasts, I’m sure you’ve heard of the Harry’s brand before. This is the company that started in 2012 on the simple premise that they could create a subscription service for men that offered astonishingly good razor blades at a fraction of the big brand names’ cost. Their business model turned out to be pretty ingenious, and as a result, the same company that owns the Schick brand of shaving products offered to purchase them for a whopping 1.4 billion dollars. That deal is yet to go through, as the FTC has sued to stop the sale. But in the meantime, Harry’s still offers some pretty awesome grooming products, including this handsome toiletry bag.

And while that description is evocative of Batman, it’s also applicable to this Dopp kit that features an expandable bottom to give you an extra 33% more packing space. Think of it as two toiletry bags in one: a slim and compact one, and a roomier version for those extra-long trips.

I’m starting to think that anyone can call a toiletry bag anything they want. Oh sure, they’re commonly called that, or. Dopp kit, but this company calls it a Wash Pouch. And while that’s all fine and dandy, it’s not the name that makes for a good Dopp kit for men. It’s the combination of design, features and price. With that said, this a very versatile bag designed for all your manly grooming accessories. There’s tons of purposeful simplicity built-in, but also plenty of features.
First, the included stowable hook allows you to quickly hang this Dopp kit, providing it with a level of functionality not seen in most toiletry bags.

So yeah, this large Dopp kit has been designed to feel right at home in military barracks, 3rd world lodgings or desert-tent encampments, but that doesn’t mean it won’t also feel right at home on the bathroom counter of a five-star hotel.

There is a level of craftiness and quality woven into every aspect of this Dopp kit that most men will immediately learn to appreciate. First, this toting toiletry bag is made from a combination of 840D ballistic nylon and TPU coated 840D ballistic nylon. That’s all to say that it’s extremely tough, durable and water-resistant. Next are the multiple zipper closures that provide plenty of access points, perhaps more than you’d see on any traditional Dopp kit.

22. Osprey Packs Ultralight Washbag Roll
Ok, I’m cheating just a touch by including this washbag roll, as it’s not exactly a full-sized Dopp kit. But sometimes, a full-sized toiletry bag is not what’s called for. Sometimes you want something a bit more compact and perhaps even something a bit more sporty and rugged. Maybe you’re in the outdoor on a multi-day hike, and there isn’t a bathroom counter for hundreds of miles in each direction. That’s where this Osprey washbag roll comes into play.
