15 Travel Kits to Store the Littler Things in Life

74

We have travel on the brain. With our recent Food52 Goes to London launch in mind, here are just a few ways to help your packing strategy.

The humble toiletries pouch, wash bag, cosmetics case, dopp kit—whatever you call it, it’s the unsung hero of many a getaway. Whether you’re taking off for two days or three weeks, having a storage option dedicated to the littler things in life will help keep you sane and, if all goes according to plan, looking great. From Everlane’s no-frills option to a globe-trotting case fit for Gigi Hadid (and priced to match), here are a few of our favorites.

Everlane The Dopp Kit, $35

Sometimes simple is best—and Everlane’s twill dopp kit with leather trim proves it.

Newton Supply Co. Waxed Canvas Toiletries Pouch, $54-$62

These waxed canvas pouches are a great way to stash toiletries and other sundries—plus they’re water-repellent.

Jack Spade Ripstop Slim Travel Kit, $59

Water-resistant ripstop nylon is super-packable and super practical, and it comes in four fun colors.

Baggu Large Cosmetics Pouch, $94

This fully-lined cosmetics case might not be practical for the more adventurous, but for everyone else? It’s gorgeous!

L.L.Bean Carryall Toiletry Kit, $24.95

L.L.Bean’s carryall kit features zip-closure mesh pockets and a wide zip top for easy access. Great for anyone who’s ever asked, “What’s all that for?”

Tumi Monaco Cosmetics Case, $155

A wraparound zip and rolled handles make this boxy case featuring three vinyl-lined interior compartments a pragmatic choice.

Izola Toilette Shave Kit, $50

Yes, it’s technically a shaving kit, but that doesn’t mean this heavy-duty cotton canvas pouch isn’t also pretty cute.

Filson Travel Kit, $75

Filson’s compact kit features a bridle leather handle for versatile carrying options, plus a fully-lined interior.

Coach Dopp Kit, $175

A classic style from a classic brand, this handsome leather dopp kit will develop a patina over time.

Muji Nylon Hanging Travel Case, $22.95

This svelte nylon case comes equipped with a built-in hook for easy closet access.

The North Face BC Travel Canister, $39

This rugged travel “canister” is a perfect pick for those whose vacations lean more 127 Hours than Weekend At Bernies.

Want Les Essentiels Kenyatta Dopp Kit, $195

Want Les Essentiels’ organic cotton canvas kit features a two-way zip top and tech fabric-lined interior.

Smythson Greenwich Washbag, $550

This sleek washbag comes in lacquered cotton with calf leather detailing and features a detachable handle. It’s so chic it may be the only bag you need, period.

Valextra Small Leather Wash Bag, $590

Valextra’s pebbled leather wash bag in army green is made in Italy, which is exactly where you were planning to vacation before spending all of your money on a dopp kit, right?

Globe-Trotter 13-inch Vanity Case, $1,205

Globe-Trotter’s fiberboard vanity case is inspired by a midcentury suitcase design and features antique rose leather corners, interior trays, and a pull-out mirror. It also costs as much as a month of rent, but could perhaps do some mean business on Airbnb. Trade-offs.
