As the mercury rises, you might start considering your spring and summer travel plans. While hitting the road is awesome, the preparation for said trip is not. Because packing is the worst. Make the experience of getting your crap (or at the very least your toiletries) together more fun, we suggest snapping up one of these kick-ass dopp kits (or wash bags as they’re called abroad). These toiletry bags are both beautiful and functional, and they’ll guarantee that you won’t forget to pack your pomade. We chose an array of canvas and cotton options befitting of warmer climes. Just looking at them puts us in a good mood and has us dreaming of sun-soaked journeys ahead.
This triangular pouch (all the better to perch on a sink) comes clad in Woolrich’s signature red buffalo check. Perfect for the mountain man who doesn’t want to let his grooming routine go downhill while roughing it in the woods.
Roomy enough to cram all the grooming essentials you need to care for your face, hair and body (hence the words “Take Care” splashed across the front of this pouch), this heavy-duty canvas ensures you can beat it to hell without suffering any consequences.
Atelier Ace + Porter Pouch ($115)
The Ace Hotel has teamed up with everyone from New Era to Pendleton to A.P.C. and now for its new dopp kit, they’ve turned to Japanese luggage makers Porter by Yoshida to come up with this travel-friendly pouch. Inspired by the vintage military poncho material featured in the rooms of the Portland, NYC and Pittsburgh locations of the hip hotel chain, it’s fashioned out of an olive khaki-colored cotton twill.
If you want the vibe of your dopp kit to match your exotic vacation, then you should definitely stash your sunscreen in this tropical-themed option. Aloha!
Burton High-Maintenance Travel Kit ($49.95)
When your “I woke up like this” look requires a lot of stuff, Burton’s toiletry kit offers the space to fit it all. Various removable pouches and pockets will help you keep all the pieces of your time-consuming routine tidy.
We’re not sure what “surf canvas” is but it sounds like summer. Pair the beachy material with the deep blue canvas that matches the sea and you have the perfect bag to tote around to upcoming getaways. The neoprene-coated interior means you don’t have to worry about spillage.
The brothers Bray designed this heavily waxed canvas bag to withstand a lot of abuse. And that’s exactly what it’s likely to incur in the course of your, hopefully adventurous, travels.
