A dopp kit is both a statement of personal style and an immensely practical item. It contains the tools one uses to transform from a shuffling, scruffy zombie to a well-groomed dynamo. If you’re traveling with others, your dopp kit also speaks to who you are. Starting your day with an attractive, well-packed dopp kit says volumes about what kind of day you intend to have. We’ve compiled a list of 15 of the best dopp kits at a variety of price points, ranging from rugged shaving kits suited for backpacking to monogrammed leather beauties worthy of passing down to your kids.
