The Tech Travel Kit
How to pack up the essentials you need (and keep 'em organized) when you're on the road.
for Your Budget
and Travel Style
The Dopp kit really took a hit after the TSA put their regulations on liquids. It forced a lot of us to abandon our leather shave kits for an overstuffed Zip-loc bag. But there's more to a toiletries bag than a few bottles filled with 3.4 ounces of liquid, right? So don't limit yourself to a ratty plastic bag to transport your grooming essentials—everything from your creams and pastes to your floss, nail clippers and drugs. Keep your bottles in a zip-sealed plastic bag (we like this reusable one) and stash it with the rest of your travel essentials in a grown-up Dopp kit that you can be proud of. Herewith, a selection of well-reviewed and road-tested bags to suit your travel style and budget.
Whether you overpack or tend to travel light, this small shave kit just might be perfect. The soft, water-resistant shell means it's both light and able to be stuffed into even the fullest carry-on. The triangular shape makes it both deceptively roomy and able to sit upright on any surface without tipping over.

A roomy multi-pocket bag with a sturdy hanging hook so you can hook it on to the door, shower rod or towel bar. A zip pocket at the top layer offers quick access to medications or other essentials while the mesh interior (roomy enough for full-size bottles if you're checking a bag) makes it easy to spot what you're looking for.

If you don't like digging around or dumping out the entire contents of your kit just to find your eye drops or zit cream, consider this handsome pebbled waxed leather case.
