Dopp Kit

After many years I finally picked up a Dopp kit style bag. The Dopp kit name comes from an early 20th century leather craftsman Charles Doppelt who invented this style of toiletry case in 1919. I have had a variety of similar bags over the years but this is the first Dopp kit “ready” travel bag. Aside from my electric shaver, everything is ready to go at a moment’s notice. All of the product is pre-packed.

What do I have in the bag?

In the top compartment, I store the following items in zip lock bags. In the rightmost zip lock bag:

  • Toothpaste
  • Mouthwash
  • Floss

In the middle zip lock bag:

  • Shower gel
  • Shampoo
  • Facial wash
  • Facial mosturizer
  • Shaving oil

And in the leftmost zip lock bag:

  • Deodorant
  • Hand Sanitizer
  • Sunscreen

I also have a bottle of Advil.

In the lower compartment, I store the following items:

  • Toothbrush (in a zip lock bag)
  • Q-tips (also in a zip lock bag)
  • Electric shaver
  • Charger for the electric shaver
  • Fingernail clippers
  • Toenail clippers
  • Safety scissors
  • 8GB USB jump drive

The jump drive contains an electronic copy of any relevant travel documents — things like scanned passports, hotel confirmations, e-tickets.
