A Dopp Kit (it was called a "Dobb" kit, or spelled "Dop Kit") is, essentially, a men’s travel toiletry bag. That is used for storing men’s grooming tools for travel.
The Dopp Kit acquired its name from a German leather-goods maker named Charles Doppelt, an immigrant to the United States. He invented his toiletry case, with the help of his nephew, in 1919. It was introduced as a “toilet bag”, however, over the years, a more appropriate name of “Dopp Kit” became more and more widely used. In American culture, the word "toilet" has more of a dirty connotation to it.
Doppelt manufactured and sold his creation locally before landing a contract with the US Army in the midst of WWII. The US Army purchased the kits to supply to all recruits, landing Doppelt national fame. As soldiers returned home they continued using their cases and, still today, the cases are known and loved for their classic design and numerous functions.

I am leaving today on my first trip with my new Galen Dopp kit. It's quite handsome, with details in the materials and construction that imply a long and useful life. Highly recommended.
