This review is for those who use the kit in a vertical configuration (i.e. hung). Your experience may vary if the kit is accessed whilst flat on a table, etc.
The dopp kit is well-built, but design wise it could really use a stiffening bar near the handle. Without that the bag (compartment next to handle) sags under the weight of the toiletries when hung, which makes vertical storage of bottles precarious. Horizontal storage of bottles results in an inefficient use of space.
The bottom compartment is not affected, so a workaround is to store ‘horizontal’ items on ‘top’ , such as toothbrushes, etc. and ‘vertical items’ at the ‘bottom’, such as pump bottles.
Would be 5-stars if both compartments can be utilised for horizontal or vertical storage.
I already have a pleather sop kit and it is something I hide away and when I am staying in a hotel I empty it of all my toiletries and put the sop kit away. This sop kit from WaterField is nothing to be ashamed of. It is made of a high quality leather, actually holds just as much as my pleaher one with an attractive exterior and the same amount of space. Every detail is evident that this is a well designed and made product. On a final note, I am on vacation now and two of the maids at the hotel have even aslked me what it was and when I showed it to them and how much it held neatly, they were amazed. Thanks, Gary & everyone at SFBags!!!
What other ways can I use the Duo?
The Duo Dopp Kit is also great for carrying cables, power supply, and other tech gear. It neatly organizes all these items compactly.
Can I take this on the plane?
If you are carrying liquid items less than 3 oz. , comply with TSA Airport Security requirements, and pass the screening, then, yes, you can take this on the plane with you.
How do you suggest I clean the ballistic nylon?
The ballistic nylon is *very* durable and will take scrubbing with a stiff brush and mild soap. Blot with towels/rags and let the case dry out. This should have the case looking good as new.
How do you suggest I clean the waxed canvas?
Waxed Canvas isn’t the easiest item on the planet to clean - part of the character-building process with Waxed Canvas is how it ages with scuffs, dirt, stains and all. Still, there are things you can do. This article gives you a good idea of how to clean and re-wax if and when you are ready. They suggest using dish soap and soft brush to clean, then drip dry, then take a hot hairdryer to heat up the wax and redistribute it. This will soften any blemishes and help with the dirt. The lines and crinkles on the waxed canvas are actually normal, and happens in shipping sometimes. All you have to do is use a hair dryer and you can flatten out the wax with your hand.
