Paravel Toiletry Bag

Pros
  • Compact design easily fits grooming essentials
Cons
  • Might not be big enough for longer travels

If you need a compact dopp kit that you can stuff a weekend’s worth of grooming products in, Paravel’s bag is your guy. Deputy Commerce Editor Christian Gollayan bought this Paravel kit in 2020, and he’s been using it on all of his travel.

“It fits easily into my weekender bags and carry-on luggage, but is roomy enough to pack all of my essentials in,” he said. Messy travelers will love its nylon fabric, which is stain and liquid resistant, and is easy to clean. Travelers who are packing for longer trips may want a bigger bag, though.

Pros
  • Sleek, clean design that’s easy to organize tools in
Cons
  • Runs expensive for the material

Four of our editors have been using Away’s large toiletry bag (alongside the brand’s bestselling luggage) because it beats out the competition. It’s a reliable kit that prioritizes function as much as it does style.

For the outer, a nylon water-resistant fabric helps repel and contain potential spills. For the inner, a water-resistant fabric (again) and a nifty mesh bag help store your razors and liquids in a uniform manner. Plus, it has a sleek, discreet design that’s so aesthetically pleasing.

Pros
  • Polyurethane coating is super stain resistant
Cons
  • Might be too small for some travelers

When it comes to waterproof bags, Rains makes some of the best. Our editors love its heavy polyurethane coating and water-resistant zipper, which makes sure not a single drop gets in (or out) of its compact main compartment. One tester found that his lotion exploded inside the wash bag, and found that it didn’t spill over to the rest of his luggage.

Pros
  • Made from 100% recycled polyester with water-resistant finish

Simple, spacious, and tough as nails, this toiletry bag from Everlane is bound to last for years to come. For starters, the zipper sliders and pullers are constructed from both metal and recycled polyester.

For quick and extensive trips, this minimal bag has held up nicely without any scuffs. With five interior pockets, we’ve always been able to load everything from cologne and hand balm to our skincare essentials with no problem.

Most Durable Men’s Toiletry Bag

Lululemon Command the Day Dopp Kit

Pros
  • Interior pocket to organize your small items of importance
Cons
  • Pretty wide, so you’ll have to make some room for it

Lululemon’s travel kit was designed for the guy who’s on the move. Complete with water-repellent fabric and a volume of 5L, our testers found that it’ll hold everything you could need, including your electric razor, face moisturizer, and pomade—and there will still be room for more.

As far as we know, it’s the only Dopp kit that’s been through rigorous military field-testing. Our testers are not in the military, but still put this toiletry bag through the paces, and found that it can handle shaving cream spills and bumpy cross-country flights.

Pros
  • Features plenty of pockets to separate items

Toiletry bags with hooks let you hang them on bathroom doors so they can stay dry, and allow you to easily see your grooming products. This one from D&D Wanderlust has received tons of five-star reviews for its compact design and easy-to-clean fabric.

“I use it every time I travel,” says travel writer Nadia Podrabinek. “The hanging hook makes it easy to use when showering, or just storing my items in the bathroom.” Though she did note that the zippers can get stuck sometimes, they’re easy to open after a few tries.

Matador Flatpak Waterproof Toiletry Case

Pros
  • Incredibly durable fabric
Cons
  • May be too small for some

Minimalist packers love this small-but-mighty toiletry bag, which has a waterproof nylon case that’s hard to tear or rip. Dustin Sitar, CEO of The Groom Club, says this is the best dopp kit he’s personally tested, and has been using it since January 2023. “It’s great for outdoor excursions, and it’s leakproof, so a broken cologne bottle won’t affect the rest of your luggage,” says Sitar.

Vetelli Classic Leather Toiletry Bag

Pros
  • Two large compartments makes organizing grooming tools easy
Cons
  • Can be too bulky for some carry-on luggage

Two of our travel experts recommended Vetelli’s classic dopp kit, which has a leather build that can take stains and scratches and has a couple of inner mesh pouches for liquid containers. Larry Snider, VP of Operations at Casago CB Rentals, bought this toiletry bag in 2021, and has been using it for his monthly travels.

“It’s incredibly functional since it has two large compartments,” he says. “I use one for larger items like my shave kit and toothbrush, and I use the other one for smaller items like floss and nail clippers. It keeps everything organized, accessible, and secure.” Though he did note that it takes up a good chunk of space in his carry-on luggage, so this may not be ideal if you’re trying to travel light.

Pros
  • Comes with a removable air mesh zip top pouch
Cons
  • May not be big enough for some travelers

This small, under-$50 toiletry bag will hold all the essentials—which is great for those who want to travel light. We like this bag (1) for its simple minimalist design and (2) for its eco-friendly construction. There’s also a removable pouch, which will make it easier to access the smaller things. Though at 2 L, some testers did not think this might not big enough for guys who like to pack a ton of grooming supplies.

Tintao Vintage Leather Canvas Travel Toiletry Bag

Pros
  • Incredibly durable canvas fabric is easy to clean
Cons
  • No inside pockets make organizing a challenge

Guys who pack for more rugged adventures, like camping, should go with a durable, affordable toiletry bag that can take a licking. Take this one from Tintao, which is an Amazon bestseller. Travel writer Ethan Williams bought this in 2019, and takes it to all his camping trips, since it can hold most of his grooming tools and larger toiletries without taking up too much room.

“The durable canvas material can withstand rough handling, and is easy to clean,” he says. Though he says that the lack of inside pockets make organizing smaller items (like hand sanitizers) challenging.

Briggs & Riley Executive Essentials Toiletry Kit

Pros
  • Large capacity
  • Lifetime warranty means you can replace a damaged bag for free

Frequent fliers who like to take a bunch of grooming products with them praise this Briggs & Riley bag, which holds up to 5 L of gear. Travel writer Nick Burgess took this toiletry kit on more than 15 trips last year. “It’s compact enough to slot into my carry-on, but strong enough to take the smushing when I’m cramming everything in my bag,” he says.

“It also has the structure to sit on a self, as well as hook on the bathroom door.” Plus, it comes with a lifetime warranty, so you can replace it for free if it breaks down. One downside: it doesn’t look great. “But if you don’t care too much about the aesthetics, I’d highly recommend this,” Burgess says.

Maybe you’re looking for something a little more timeless. Consider this leather bag from Tecovas, which is perfect for holding things like your electric toothbrush, razor, and other small essentials.

Leather is a go-to material for a lot of dopp kits, but our editors found that Tecovas’ Presidio leather patina feels extra premium, and looks even better with age. That’s why the kit’s higher-than-average price tag is justified.
