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.Â 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:
In the middle zip lock bag:
- Shower gel
- Facial wash
- Facial mosturizer
- Shaving oil
And in the leftmost zip lock bag:
- Hand Sanitizer
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.
