Best Men’s Toiletry Bags and Dopp Kits for Traveling with Toiletries

While it can be tempting to just shove your toiletries and razor into a plastic bag, especially if you’re packing in a hurry, investing in a proper men's toiletry bag or dopp kit can save you a lot of hassle in the long run. Most are lined with plastic or even PVC, creating a buffer between your toiletries and the rest of your luggage in case of any shampoo spills. Many come with built-in hangers, which are a godsend if you end up in a hotel bathroom without any counter space. We’ve scoured far and wide for some of the best men's toiletry bags and dopp kits, and where to buy them. Get organized.

Best Men's Toiletry Bag Overall

WAYFARER SUPPLY Hanging Toiletry Bag.

If you want a men's toiletry bag that strikes the perfect balance of size and functionality at a reasonable price point, it doesn't get better than this hanging option from Wayfarer Supply Company. It comes loaded with all the bells and whistles one would hope for from a toiletry bag, including an easy-to-access exterior pocket, multiple interior mesh and water-resistant interior pockets, and a swiveling hook for hanging the bag at multiple angles. There's also a removable board at the base of the bag, allowing it to stand upright on counters. The sturdy exterior means this bag folds flat for easy packing. Truly, it's genius.

Best Runner-Up Men's Toiletry Bag

 Victorinox Zip-Around Travel Kit.

From the people who brought you the multipurpose Swiss Army Knife, this Victorinox toiletry kit offers the same sleek, utilitarian design esthetic as their flagship product (though you sadly won’t be able to use it to cut things). It comes in a tri-fold configuration that can be fully expanded for easy access to all your stuff. The third compartment detaches if you need to pack extra light. The lining is antibacterial—a major bonus. It might be on the pricy side, but you can count on this bag to last you at least a decade, thanks to a limited 10-year warrantee.

Best Hanging Men's Toiletry Bag

Personal Organizer Toiletry Bag, Medium.

This men's toiletry bag has long been popular with L.L. Bean loyalists. Users love its multiple mesh and plastic-lined pockets, practical organization pockets to keep toiletries sorted and upright, and side and front pockets for easy access to toiletries. It's also got a large nylon handle that makes it easy to carry, plus a collapsible hanger that's wide enough to suspend it from thick closet racks or towel bars. This bag is also available in all sorts of colors and patterns to suit individual tastes—including a very manly red buffalo plaid.

Best Waterproof Men's Toiletry Kit

Herschel Chapter Travel Kit Carry-On Bag-Raven Crosshatch.

The Herschel toiletry bag is deceiving in more ways than one. It looks small, but it's roomy—it's big enough for an electric razor and a few toiletries; travel-sized bottled can fit snugly into interior pockets. It also offers waterproof protection without looking waterproof (read: more functional than attractive) so it's a great buffer in case of accidental leaks. Take that, leaky shampoo bottles.

Best Men's Toiletry Kit from Target

SWISSGEAR Rectangular Toiletry Bag.

You don't have to pronounce it "tar-jay" with a faux-French accent to know that Target is full of chic-looking, high-quality gear, sold for a fraction of what you'd pay at a department store. Men's toiletry kits are no exception, and while the selection is huge, we particularly like this tweed-finish gray number from Swissgear. Features include a large webbed handle, a wraparound zipper, and a discreet front pocket—and that's just the inside. Open it up and you'll find a well-designed mesh interior with a variety of pockets plus a compact hanger for easy suspension. We're sold.

Best Men's Toiletry Bag from Walmart

American Tourister Silicone Dopp Kit, Black.

Though most men's toiletry bags are made from nylon, leather, or canvas, this American Tourister option eschews the trend in favor of reliably durable, waterproof silicone. It's complete with a leak-resistant zipper that protects your button-down shirts from the potential disaster of a mid-flight beard oil explosion. Best of all, cleaning this bag is a breeze: just chuck it in the dishwasher when you get home and your bag will be as good as new and clean as a whistle.

Best Stylish Men's Toiletry Bag

Briggs & Riley Baseline Deluxe Toiletry Kit.

Although this Briggs & Riley number doesn’t come cheap, it's one of the more stylish options out there, with a low profile, a sleek buckle closure, and an adjustable webbing loop for hanging. The 1680D ballistic nylon outer fabric resists wear, water, dirt, and abrasion. It's also around a foot long, meaning you can cram quite a bit of odds and ends inside. It's definitely a step up from your average toiletry bag and the perfect home for high end toiletries like Kiehl's and Molton Brown. Sometimes, it's the little things.

Best Splurge-Worthy Men's Toiletry Bag

TUMI - Alpha 3 Hanging Travel Kit.

If understated sophistication is what you’re after, this toiletry bag from trusted luggage company Tumi is well worth the splurge, both for its stylish look and for its functionality. Although this bag is made of “ballistic” nylon, it probably won’t explode, and it's designed to either sit upright or hang, depending on your needs. The interiors are lined with anti-bacterial lining which keep odors at bay. The best part? Each bag features its own product code that can be used to reunite lost or stolen bags with their owners. Pretty cool.
