Dopp kits are a great way to keep your toiletries contained and tucked away from the rest of your travel bag. Grab them and go, and you’ll stay organized with all the necessary creams, hair gels, Band-Aids, condoms, and whatever else you may need. And the best Dopp kits make sure that if your cologne pops open in the middle of a flight, the rest of your bag isn’t ruined.
Keeping fully stocked toiletry bags in various places is a SPY life hack we pride ourselves on. That leather weekender duffel bag you use for 70% of your trips? There should always be a fully stocked Dopp kit in there, with its own toothbrush, contact solution and deodorant, independent of the ones you use for your day-to-day. There should be another one in your gym bag, in case you get a mid-workout text that there’s some party to go to, leaving you without time to dash home to get ready otherwise. End up staying at someone else’s place on a Tuesday night and need to spruce yourself up at the office? Keep a fully stocked Dopp kit at your desk so you can look your best. If your Dopp kit is always stocked, you never have to worry about forgetting anything when you’re frantically packing the night before a big trip.
But while it’s good to keep these different kits around, each one doesn’t need to be exactly the same. A smaller neoprene pouch can stay in your work or gym bag with basics like deodorant and a toothbrush, while a substantially sized canvas one can be your go-to for big trips when you need cologne, moisturizer and hair products. The nylon workhorse can live in your weekender bag when you need a full setup but not the entire medicine cabinet. Try out a few of the best Dopp kits below to get your routine right!
