Since I take half of my showers at the gym, I needed an elegant solution to carry around my toiletries. And after a good 3 to 4 months of searching and indecision, I finally found a dopp kit that meets all of my requirements!
- leather, simple, cool-looking, quality, limited.
Made of natural leather, it’s durable. I like that, over time, it will take on markings and develop a personality in response to my use and abuse. I’m looking forward to it turning into a rich, honey color, reminiscent of the handles of vintage Louis Vuitton monogram canvas bags.
Overall, it’s dimensions are only 8.75 x 4 x 4 inches, but by having a tie-closure and longer internal “catch” panels, the volume of stuff it can carry is expandable. You don’t get this feature with traditional dopp kits that use zippers.
Inspecting the construction, it’s pretty amazing how simple it is to make – three panels and three stringy strips of leather. No metal at all.
To get an idea of how much this thing holds, here’s some of the stuff that I carry in the dopp kit – deodorant, toner, face cleanser, lip stuff, serum, shave cream, moisturizer, comb, extra razor blades….quite a bit of of full-sized products.
Pretty cool, huh?
The dopp kit can be purchased at Context.
