The Essential Travel Accessory for The Modern Man – Introducing The Dopp Kit Toiletry Bag

What is a Dopp Kit?

A Dopp kit is a portable, versatile bag that houses all of the essentials you may need on a business trip, gym session, camping trip, home use or any other outdoor activity. It keeps your toiletries well-organized and easily accessible. Plus, it’s great for bathrooms with limited counter space, so you can make the most of your stay. Whether you’re a globetrotter or just taking a weekend trip, a dopp kit toiletry bag is a must-have for every traveler.

But how did the Dopp kit come to be? And what is a dopp kit, exactly?


Dopp Kit 101: A Brief History in Toiletry Cases

Let’s travel back to early 20th century Germany to visit a man named Charles Doppelt.

Charles Doppelt was a German leather-smith who later migrated to the United States. Perhaps inspired by his journey, Doppelt unveiled his leather-laden, waterproof toiletry kit in 1926, alongside a line of Dopp-Bilt leather business briefcases.

When the second world war commenced, Dopp kits were introduced to the military, providing millions of bags to soldiers overseas. The toiletry cases became a hit and were adopted by much of America following the war.

The term Dopp kit soon became a signature alternative to the phrase toilet bag—a terminology disliked by many Americans at the time due to its “dirty” connotation.

And so the Dopp kit was born.

Today, Dopp kits are used by men and women alike. Travelers and commuters alike never lacked for anything ever again—well, that isn’t entirely true. But one thing is for certain, Dopp kits provide an organizational haven for your much-needed toiletries and beard grooming essentials.


What to carry in a Dopp Kit


A Dopp kit is an accessory that is much smaller than a cosmetic case and provides more organization too. In other words, a Dopp kit is a travel toiletry bag for your essentials—toothbrushes, toothpaste, beard oil, shampoo, nail clippers, boar brush, comb and deodorant. Basically, a Dopp kit holds anything you deem essential for your morning and nightly routines.

Here’s another way to think about Dopp kits. In the event of a lost suitcase, what would you want in your carry-on during a cross-country trip?

That’s what you put in your Dopp kit.
