Dopp Kit/Toiletry Bag

Post by Sam » Thu Nov 29, 2018 12:47 pm

Eagle Creek bag has made its match. Nylon inside is kinda tearing up. Needing something but can't decide between a dopp kit or a toiletry bag, like at LL Bean or Land's End. Eagle Creek one had pockets and things and I dont know if that helped or not, maybe wasted space rather than just tumble it all in anyway?

Leather, I think, would not be a good call since water would get to it and I am thinking just in case something came loose or leaked, especially on an air plane.

I don't travel much, but when I do, it's mostly by auto. So $50 is about what I would like to spend

Duluth trading has a couple, and then ORvis has this

ideas?

L.L. Bean. Here's the one I have. It was a gift (with my initials embroidered on it) from my son several years ago. I've used it for traveling many times. It's got tons of convenient storage bins. I love it.

I was thinking that the Bean one actually would not hold as much since unless it fits in a pouch, it would fall out when you hang it up

So I think it may be down to these, and if someone who travels more than me can opine, great. Worried about leakage into the interior


Leather from Duluth, one of the roomier ones. Polyester lining, so is that like plastic-covered or will it look through?

Duluth nylon, hanging option, probably a bit better than an LL BEan option?

Orvis leather, small sized, but I can get it personalized

Orvis nubuck, a bit bigger

Orvis hanging option, like a dopp kitt that hangs more so than the multi compartment LLBean

Two options from Etsy: Advantages are much cheaper and waxed canvas, so cheaper than a Filson, but one has plastic overlay, the second a bit nicer trim on the outside

If you want a nearly indestructible toiletries bag look at the two Red Oxx makes: the Nomad Shave Kit and the Tri-fold Shave Kit. I have the Tri-fold and it’s a real beast in terms of its construction and materials used, including the zippers. I think I’ll be able to bequeath my Tri-fold to my son and he to his son.

Bass Pro - not a great look but super big, cheap and functional. Nothing fancy, but leak proof lining. Huge as far as cubic inches, almost a third bigger than the others (495 vs 385 or so).

Two big compartments, side zip for like bandaids, medicine, toothbrush. Water proof outside and inside looks to be able to keep leakage contained.


Just ordered the bass pro one. I mean, I overthink and it was the largest, with the nylon inner, and $10.93 shipped to the house

Sam, I got this one as a gift in a recent golf tournament. I have used it on a couple of trips and like the storage and versatility. Things are much easier to find than a standard Dopp kit, and being flatter, it seems to pack better. Ogio makes a lot of golf bags, along with duffels and backpacks. They have a pretty good reputation.
