Nine Dopp Kits That Will Make Anywhere Feel Like Home

The dopp kit should not be an afterthought, but a highly useful tool that makes your travel life better. These will do the trick.

You can learn a lot about someone by seeing what’s in their dopp kit. (Beware: It's kind of rude to ask.) The kit is not only the home of all of your pills, grooming tools, and potions, but how you keep it organized can explain what kind of traveler you are. Do you have handy travel-sized versions of only the essentials? Then you're a planner, and you're efficient. Are you carting around half a dozen semi-empty body wash bottles and stringy mending kits you cadged from hotels? You fly by the seat of your pants, and you're always ready to improvise. And what about the dopp kit itself? Is it a handsome, clean tote, or a beat-up bag you've been lugging around for more than a decade?

(That was a trick question. It should always be attractive and neat.)

Below, we've gathered nine great options for different types of travelers, from those who like traditional sturdy canvas kits to those who like lots of compartments and organizational tools. Select wisely.
