What is a Dopp Kit and Why Do You Need One?

The simple and short answer is it’s a specific bag used for carrying grooming and toiletry items.  Dopp kits come in all shapes and sizes and can contain pockets and compartments to keep your items organized.  Materials can vary from leather, canvas, cordura and others.  At Scioto Made we specifically choose materials that are made to be rugged and strong enough for any adventure or use.

So, what’s with the name “Dopp”?  Well, this comes from the name Charles Doppelt, an early 20th century leather craftsman who created the first version of the bag. Since, it’s become a staple in travel bags and it’s an easy way to keep all your essential toiletries in one place.

While a Dopp kit is typically used for toiletry/grooming items, this bag can have many other uses as well. Scioto Made’s Dopp kits are designed with an open compartment and a liner which makes this item more than just a toiletry bag, but a bag that’s versatile for many needs.   

  • Travel: Our Dopp kits are perfect for keeping all your toiletries/grooming/small items organized when you’re on the go. It can easily fit into carry-on luggage or even a backpack, so you don’t have to worry about bringing multiple bags with you when you travel. We make our dopp kits with YKK waterproof zippers to keep your items safe from the elements.  
  • Home Organization: A Dopp kit can also be used to store items at home, such as makeup, shaving supplies, and other personal care products. This makes it easy to find what you need without having to rummage through drawers or cabinets looking for it.
  • Camping Organization: Keeping small portable items organized while camping is essential. A Dopp kit can be used to hold small kitchen utensils, cords, bug sprays, and other small items that need to stay together.
