Leather Dopp Kit

A leather toiletry bag with style


The leather Dopp kit is a great gift. In fact, Dopp kits used to be very common gifts for young men who were becoming adults.

The name Dopp is a shortened form of Doppelt. Charles Doppelt, a leather craftsman, invented this leather toiletry bag in 1919. These bags became very popular when they were standard issue to American soldiers in World War II.

Leather is naturally water resistant. That's important for two reasons.

  • This bag will sit on the counter of the sink, so it will probably get wet.
  • When flying, if your toiletries explode, you don't want the mess to leak out of the bag and onto your clothes.

Most Dopp kits are about the same physical size and have the same dimensions. Some have zippered bottom compartments, so you can store a few things that you want to be able to find easily. For example, you might want toothpaste or deodorant after a long flight without having to empty the whole bag onto the airport sink.

Because they are made from leather, these bags are durable and will last for many years. Pick a style and color you like, because you'll have this bag for a long time.
