A good toiletry kit, also known as a dopp kit, is indispensable. Sure, the zippered pouch is essential for wrangling all your grooming supplies for long weekends and family vacations. But it’s also a necessary component of any good workout bag: You don’t want your deodorant or toothbrush mingling with those sweaty clothes, now do you?
The best dopp kits are built to handle years of use, spacious enough to fit your grooming gear without being too bulky, and capable of organizing all of your soaps, sprays, toothbrushes, razors, and whatever else you need to keep yourself looking fresh. Good thing, then, that there’s a wide variety of bags, from classic zippered pouches to those that unfold to reveal a built-in hook so you can hang it in the bathroom far above the sink. Here are some of our favorites.
As anyone who’s tried to grab something burrowed deep in a standard Dopp Kit only to slice their finger on a stowed razor or cuticle scissor can tell you, sometimes you want a bag that lays flat. This clamshell-style bag does just that. It features only a few pockets — one interior zippered pocket, a mesh panel, and two exterior zippered pockets — but has plenty of storage space.
While it’s not for long trips, this single zippered pouch, which is made of ballistic fabric and has a waterproof interior, is ideal for anyone searching for a durable Dopp Kit that contains spills and takes up very little space. It’s available in seven colors and has a padded bottom to keep it upright on the bathroom counter.
Made of waterproof leather and looking more like a saddlebag than a toiletry bag, this case unfurls to reveal a many pocketed interior with plenty of pockets and space for all of your supplies. Zippers and belt-style leather strips keep it secure, while an internal hook lets you hang it high for easy access to you — and not grimy bathroom tile.
Sometimes, you just need to get through an airport security check as fast as possible. That's where this toiletry bag comes in handy. It comes pre-packed with TSA-approved plastic bottles to fill and is clear to make the gate agents know there's not any funny business going on in your suitcase.
Filson knows had to make goods that last and this Dopp Kit is no exception.

The water-resistant fabric is also made from recycled plastic bottles.
This simple, streamlined pouch is for those who travel light. The fabric is water-repellent and easy to wipe clean. Throw it in your backpack and you're ready to roll.
