Real Men Carry a Nice Dopp

In all my travels, I’ve learned that it’s nice to carry a good dopp kit.  I have an older model Ralph Lauren that is on it’s last legs.  It is canvas, and I think I’ll go the same route next time as they are easier to clean.  They make anything you need ‘travel size’ now, so for me, there isn’t much need for a hanging dopp kit.  As a man, you really shouldn’t need much more room for your personals than what fits in a dopp kit.

I prefer these:

1. J. Crew Abingdon Dopp Kit
2. Jack Spade Trad Canvas Bag
3. BILLYKIRK Buckled Dopp Kit
4. Filson Travel Kit
5. Jack Spade Mill Leather Dopp Kit
6. Southern Marsh Dopp Kit
7. Jack Spade Box Dopp Kit

What do  you think?  Am I missing any?

    There’s always the personalized Dopp kit you get as a groomsman’s gift. Best groomsnan’s gift I’ve gotten.

    Filson, Orvis and LL. Bean Signature all have some pretty attractive options. JRS, have a good new year bud.

    I have a pretty old one from LL Bean I got from my father. It’s a dark forest green.

    That Stonewall olive color from Southern Marsh is beautiful…and for $49 seems to be a pretty good deal as long as it would hold up. I would love to get a new dopp kit sometime, but I still have one from Fossil that I bought about 4 years ago or so that is holding up wonderfully.

    Picked up a new dopp kit this year from Blue Claw Co. A little disappointed that it only came in black, but the leather ends are a great accent. Size is great too, as it fits the essentials, but isn’t oversized.

    Great assortment of DOPP Kit choices and timely as I’m in the market for one. I wouldn’t presume to dictate content for RCS, but I think a great follow-up posting to this would be the choice of men’s items that RCS recos for DOPP kits. It’d make for an interesting read!
