So what do you guys use for a toiletry bag/dopp kit when traveling?
I'm looking for some ideas because the canvas bag that I've had since I was 12 years old finally gave up the ghost. Well I totally forgot that it had fallen apart until I was packing for an overnight trip last week and had to make an impromptu kit with an old Superfriends lunch pail - incidentaly that I've had since I was 8 years old.
My old bag was the standard one zipper with a handle at one end and fairly nice size-wise. I'm looking to replace it with something not too expensive. I looked at a few local stores but didn't see anything worthwile.

I have some similar to this, a bit larger, that I picked up at Target a few years ago.

I have a weakness for travel kits. My favorites, from Coach. I know, I'm no help. Blush

Try TJ Maxx. they often have DOPP kids for under $20 in leather.

i've gotten a few there (well, Winners in Canada, but TJ Maxx for the US guys)

got this Kenneth Cole Reaction, double compartment with side compartment for $12.99

I know they are expensive, but you get what you pay for. Coach makes a fine dopp kit.
As you can see in the pictures, there is ample room for a full rotation if you wish while traveling.

*A few Simpson's got excited and thought we were going somewhere and hopped in the bag!*

I've used this bag for almost 20-years now. I believe the label says TRAVELON.

It has multiple compartments and the large side pockets will hold a bottle of Floid Blue. These are lousy pictures, but you get the idea.

Boy, you don't miss a thing.Biggrin It's a travel kit. Nothing goes in that bag that I could not live without. That is a BIC disposable, and there is a Vulfix Piccadilly Brush inside that tube.

Okey-dokey, I stopped by three stores today - Burlington Coat Factory, Ross, and TJ Maxx.
BCF had a lot of out of season clothes but nothing in the way of Dopp kits or any mens accessories really. Ross was smaller than BCF and not much better.
TJ Maxx had a large womens section and a tiny mens area in the corner. There was a shelf with some fragrances, galoshes, and one vinyl bag with the New York Knicks logo on the side and a broken zipper. I did see some cute girls, one of whom smiled at me so the trip wasn't a total loss. I suppose these stores are kind of hit or miss so I'll have to move my search online.

Those Coach bags are really nice, my father has a Coach briefcase that’s probably around 15 years old and looks amazing. The only problem is that I'll save up for a nice leather Coach bag and then end up spending the money on a brush instead Shy

Thanks again for all of the suggestions everyone I did find it helpful. After a bit of online searching I think I may grab this one.

There's an REI just down the road from me so I can swing by and check it out first.

I have an older Eagle Creek Wallaby. Newer version at the link. Anything else I find seems either too small or too large for my needs.

I have a smaller Nike leatherette that I use for shorter or weekend trips and I have a larger black Swiss Army one that I use for longer trips.

I do however like your idea of using the metal lunch box. I was in Old Navy the other day and was admiring the collection of New Vintage Metal Lunch Boxes and wondering what other uses they have? I think I am going to go purchase the Superman and Avengers boxes to use on my next trips.

Happy Shaving. Sam.
