Toiletry Bags and Dopp Kits for Men: Top Choices

GreenMind publishes authoritative and detailed guides to the things you're curious about.


Does Style Matter When You're Traveling?

The answer: "yes, of course!" Even smaller pieces of your travel kit should look sharp. Dopp kits and toiletry bags may not get the same public scrutiny as your actual luggage, but quality and style are important no matter what the context. Here are some of the best-looking, but still affordable, hanging toiletry bags for travelers with a keen eye for style.

When you're choosing a toiletry bag, keep an eye out for these important features:

  • Water-resistant material
  • Padding to protect your items
  • Large enough for shampoo, conditioner, lotions, sunscreen, etc.
  • Multiple interior pockets
  • High-quality zippers and fasteners
  • Transparent pocket with zipper closure helps to get easy access to things you need
  • Interior reinforced hanging hook so you can hang it up on towel racks, shower rods or doorknobs

Top Choice: Vancase Hanging Toiletry Bag

This is my top choice for a hanging toiletry bag with style. Vancase makes excellent but reasonably priced PU leather pieces that look like they cost hundreds, and this hanging bag is a perfect example. I travel constantly, often alone, and I'm aware that my toiletry bag doesn't always have an audience. But that doesn't matter to me; there's something about a toiletry bag like this that makes me feel more at home. I like feeling that I'm surrounded by quality.

A Sharp Toiletry Bag by Vetelli

As often as I travel, I really value feeling like I have some little luxuries in my environment. My hotel room just feels more like it's mine with a little bag like this in the vicinity. Handsome and functional, Vetelli makes one of the nicer toiletry bags out there, looking more like a piece of high-end luggage than a traditional dopp kit. A beautifully styled piece designed for men, but many women will also consider including a Vetelli kit in their luggage.

All in all, this is a handsome, high-quality hanging toiletries bag made for men but suitable for women as well.

Kolmac Genuine Buffalo Leather Hanging Toiletry Bag

I like this bag because, as a traveler, I have plenty of experience with true leather baggage pieces. Unlike many hanging toiletry bags, this one is not made of "PU leather."

PU leather is part leather, with the rest being synthetic material that is impervious to moisture and damage. Even high-end bags use PU leather, and it looks exactly like the real thing. This bag, on the other hand, uses buffalo leather, which is typically not stretched during tanning and therefore has a unique pattern to the grain.

Kolmac Details

  • Full-grain buffalo leather
  • Handcrafted by experienced craftsmen
  • Water-resistant inside lining
  • Lined pockets
  • Top-quality YKK metal zippers
  • Can be used as a hanging toiletry bag or flat
  • Real buckles for secure closure and vintage look

Vancase Duffel-Style Hanging Toiletry Bag for Men

I like the Vancase label for its clean, functional style. Their duffel-style toiletry bag is very handsome and well-designed, with all of the features I expect in a relatively high-end product like this. I need my travel items to last, and both Vetelli and Vancase make that kind of quality product.

Vancase Details

  • High-quality PU leather: waterproof and easy to clean
  • High-density cotton canvas
  • Smooth zippers
  • Stainless steel metal hooks
  • Classic vintage look
  • Handmade
  • 4 different pockets make it easy to organize a variety of travel accessories
This charming hanging toiletries bag is meant for women, but it might find male fans, too.
