Vetelli - Offering Some of the Best Toiletry Bag Options for Men on the Market

When you are traveling, it is always a struggle to find a great bag to carry your toiletries in. Today, many of the bags that are designed for toiletries that you will encounter are made from cheap nylon, which can easily rip or tear during your travels. If you pack your toiletries in with your clothes without separating them, it is likely that something will spill throughout your suitcase, which can easily ruin your clothes that you have packed for the trip. Of course, you can always separate your toiletries into a few Ziploc bags; however, since these bags are fragile, this is really not a viable solution that will work well, especially for a long trip where you will need to use your toiletries regularly.

If you are looking for a dopp kit for men, Vetelli has a new toiletry bag collection that could easily work for you. These include:

Each of the new toiletry bag options will be designed to be airplane-friendly, come with a lifetime warranty, and will give you a stylish option that will make traveling much simpler. Before we take a look at the three new options that are being revealed by Vetelli, let's look at some of the things to consider for your new dopp kit.

Features to Look for In a Toiletry Bag

When you are looking for a new toiletry bag, there are going to be certain features that you will need to look for. All three of these new Vetelli bags are great options to choose from, but not all of them are going to fit your specific needs. Depending on the specific features that you are looking for and the design options that are the most important to you, one of these three bags is likely to work well. Some of the features that you will want to consider when looking for a new toiletry bag include:

Friendly TSA Policies

Remember, if you are planning on taking your new toiletry bag with you on a flight, there are going to be specific standards that you need to follow to make sure that you can take the bag with the toiletries inside as a carry-on. Not all liquid toiletries will be able to go through security easily, so it is vital to make sure that the bag you choose has friendly TSA options that will not cause you to miss your flight.

All liquids that are packed as a carry-on must be less than 3.4 ounces and packed in a resealable plastic bag that is one quart in size. All three of these new bags will have options that make TSA security checks go quicker. They are small enough to be used as a carry-on, and can provide enough space for several 3.4-ounce travel-size lotions, creams, or shampoos.

If something that you need to take with you on your vacation does not come in a travel size container, it is easy to purchase small bottles that you can reuse and refill as needed. Make sure that all of the caps are secure so that spills do not happen. Also, any non-essential items should be left at home to save space. Since you are trying to be TSA-friendly, remember that some items come in solid form instead of liquid, which means that soap, shaving bars, and moisturizers can be packed without an issue.

Since all three of these bag options are relatively small, you can choose to take them on a flight as a carry-on or to avoid the TSA completely when it comes to your toiletry bag. This helps because you can even decide to pack the dopp kit in your suitcase if you have the space. This way, your toiletries only have to fit inside the Vetelli bag instead of going through all of the hoops that security will require.

Size of the Bag

When you are packing for an extended vacation, the size of the bag that you need to store your toiletries is going to vary based on the length of your trip. A small bag that will work for a weekend trip is not going to work for a 10-day cruise, so choose the option that we will be introducing to you in this guide that best fits your needs.

In addition to the number of days that you will be gone, the amount of skin care products and toiletries that you use on a daily basis will also affect the size of the bag that you need. In general, it is a good idea to leave unnecessary toiletries at home when you are packing.

Before you find that you are packing your bag with too many non-essential items, ask yourself can I do without this specific item on the trip. Will it be available when I get to my destination or will I have to do without it completely? Here are some of the essential items that you will want to consider packing:
  • Body Wash - In some hotels and places that you will be staying, there will already be body wash or soap that you can use to make sure that you are clean each day during your vacation. If you feel that you need to pack your own soap or body wash, bring smaller containers with you that will not take up a lot of space.
  • Shampoo - Again, most hotels will have shampoo in their rooms when you arrive, but if you feel the need to bring your own, consider using dry shampoo instead. These will clean your hair without water and can be very effective. Also, you can take shampoo that already contains a conditioner so that you do not need to pack both.
  • A Comb - Instead of packing a large brush that will take up a lot of space, consider a comb that will easily fit into your bag. Most men and women can use a comb for their hair, even their facial hair, so this is a solution that will only require you to pack one for multiple uses.
  • A Razor - Most men and women use a razor a few times a week but packing several disposable razors will take up additional space in your bag. One way to save space is to pack one reusable razor that can be used for both of your needs. Even if you switch out the blade, you will find that using one razor will be much more convenient.
  • A Toothbrush and Toothpaste - One of the best ways to save space with these items is to get travel-size toothpaste and a toothbrush that folds. This will help you to keep your toothbrush clean as you travel.
  • Deodorant – It is important to stay fresh and clean while you are on vacation, so packing some deodorant is essential especially if you are going to be in the hot sun for any period of time. Purchasing travel size stick deodorant is going to be the easiest on space. Aerosol sprays are going to have more of an issue getting through security, so it is best to avoid this type of deodorant if possible.
Weight of the Bag

Another important aspect that you will need to consider is the weight of the toiletry bag that you are taking. Whether you are taking this bag as a carry-on, or you have decided to pack it away in your suitcase, its weight is going to add a burden to what you need to carry. If you are carrying the bag onto the plane with you, you will have to hold it while you wait to board.

If there are a lot of liquids inside the bag or things that you will need during your vacation, it is likely to weigh much more than you would expect. If you put the bag inside of your suitcase, you will not need to actually carry the bag but many of the airlines that you are likely to travel on will have weight restrictions for the bags that you're using. In most cases, when a bag is overweight, it can cost quite a bit more for each additional pound.

If you have extra space in your bags, you may not need to worry about the weight of your toiletries, but many people travel with their bags full which means that even if you have lightweight materials in the bag, adding extra toiletries may cause it to go over. Another consideration to make when it comes to the weight of the toiletries is the extra items that you may be bringing home with you from your vacation. This can include gifts for other people, souvenirs you've purchased for yourself, and more. The toiletries that you have packed to go with you are likely to be emptier; however, they may still make a difference when it comes to the weight of the bag that you are trying to stow under the plane.

Hanging Hooks and Handles

When you are traveling, it is crucial that the bag that you choose to use has the ability to hang from the wall so that you can reach all of the compartments without an issue. This means that you can easily find the materials that you have packed within the bag without removing them each time you need something. All three of the bags that we are featuring in this guide come with handles that allow you to dangle the bag from a towel rack or something similar.

In addition, the hangar that is designed to be on the top of the bags can easily be removed and reattached so that it can hang where you need it to while you are traveling. This type of hook or handle can also make it easy to transport the bag to the bathroom or above your bed where you are staying for your vacation.

In most cases, there is only going to be one hook to hang the bag from or one handle to carry it with; however, almost all of the dopp kits that you find on the market are going to have either one or the other to add more convenience to your vacation. These handles are going to have a very durable design so that they do not rip with all of the toiletries inside of the bag. In most cases, it will have a double stitch in the threading to help secure it in place.

Durable Design

Not only are you looking for a beautiful bag to use during your vacation, but you are also searching for a durable option that will last for years. All three of these bag options are crafted using cruelty-free leather. This material is designed to be rip and tear free, so be able to withstand the abuse of being used on a daily basis. In addition to the material that can be found on the outside of these three bags, there is a durable lining on the inside of each of these bags that will also be able to take years of use.

Another great feature that adds to this very durable product is the YKK zippers that are a part of the material design. While this type of zipper is known for being one of the most durable types in the world, it is also a very reliable option that will last for years of zipping and unzipping. All three of these models utilize a YKK zipper in their design, so whether you are going to want more of an exterior zipper option that can easily be seen when you use the bag or one that is hidden within the design of the bag is going to be up to your personal preferences.

Water Resistant Fabric

When you are traveling, the last thing you want to do with your carry-on bag is to send it to a location where it can get wet. Without water-resistant fabric, all of the items inside the bag have the possibility of becoming damaged. Good fabric that is designed to be water-resistant will also give you some protection against stains on the material as well. This will give you a great way to protect the bag when you set it down in the bathroom as well as keep the bag from getting wet when you travel with it.

When it comes to these bags, you want more than just a water-resistant outside. It is important to ensure that the liners inside the bag can also keep spills at bay. Without this protection, any liquid that spills inside of one of these three bags has a good chance of damaging the other contents of your suitcase. All three of these new bags are great for providing a water-resistant fabric that will protect the rest of your luggage. However, if you are specifically looking for water resistant liners inside of the bag to protect your things from spills, the Vetelli hanging bag for toiletries is a great option that gives you the full protection that you will want during your vacation.

The Number of Pockets

Another consideration that you will need to make before you decide which one of these bags is best for your needs is the number of pockets that you need the bag to have. You are most likely going to use this product for a lot of toiletries, which means that you are not going to want your toothbrush in the same compartment as a pair of fingernail clippers that you may use on your feet. Lotions, shampoos, and perfumes can all go in the same area but to give you a better idea of where these things are kept, more pockets may be required.

You may also need additional pockets in your bag for things like medications. These may not be prescribed medications that you take on a daily basis, but things like Tylenol, allergy medication, and vitamins may be harder to come by where you are going. This means that to make sure you are prepared for every situation, you should take medications with you that you tend to use more often. If you do take a lot of medications, having a compartment to keep this organized will make it is easier to ensure that you have everything you need before you go.

Before you go out and make a purchase based on the quality of the bag, make sure that you have all of the pocket space that you need to have to travel for at least a week. Also, makes sure that you take the size of the pockets into consideration. A toothbrush is not going to need the same space as a bottle of shampoo, so having different options in your bag will make it easier to organize the things that you need to pack in this bag.

See Through Pockets

When you are traveling, and bag that has see-through pockets inside can be a great investment. To start, you will be able to see inside of the bag to find exactly what you're looking for without searching too much through its internal section. This will make it easy to find different types of medications that you are looking for, shampoo to wash your hair, or a razor to give yourself a touch-up before you go out.

Having see-through pockets in your bag will not only benefit you when you are trying to find something quickly, but it will also help the TSA agents at security to figure out exactly what is inside the bag, especially since there is most likely to be liquids inside of the bag. If you find that you do not have enough space inside the see-through pockets, you can easily remove larger items like your hairbrush and pack them directly in your suitcase rather than trying to pack liquid toiletries in separate bags. In general, the rule for taking liquids on a plane is that they must all be in the same bag when you go through a security checkpoint. If your toiletries do not meet the standard regulations, pack them inside of your suitcase instead.

These bags are not 100 percent see-through; however, some of the interior pockets are made from a transparent plastic material that serves the same purpose. These are ideal for finding things that you need quickly, which will make your vacation much easier to manage.

Easy to Clean

When you are looking for a new bag, it is crucial to find one that is going to be easy to clean. Since it is inevitable that you are going to be carrying liquid toiletries with you during your travels, it is important to note and that these can easily spill from time to time. Not all travel bags are going to be easy to clean; however, if keeping your luggage clean is important to you, then there are a few things that you should look for in your new bag. Plastic liners will help keep spills from getting into the material of the bag. In general, these liners can easily be wiped clean with a damp or wet cloth.

Another great way to prevent spills in your new bag is to use travel bottles that have locking caps that will ensure that leaks do not occur. A silicone bottle that is likely to bend with jolts during your travel is ideal; however, these are not required. If you do use bottles that are prone to spills, make sure that you get a bag that has material that you can simply wipe clean. It is also important to note how quickly the leather on these bags will dry. Something that dries quickly is less likely to be damaged if it gets wet.

Included Warranty

As with any new purchase, it is essential to check the warranty that comes with it. A good manufacturer is going to back their products with a good warranty. For most of these types of bags, getting at least a three- to a five-year warranty is very important. This will cover any tears that may happen to the material, any unwanted rips in the stitching, and the overall quality of the pockets in the bags will be better. In general, all Vetelli bags are designed to come with a lifetime warranty. This means that anything that happens during the time that you own the bag will be covered.

The Paolo by Vetelli

The first bag that we are going to look at in this dopp kit review Is a smaller one that is 8.7 inches wide, 3.8 inches thick, and 6.0 inches tall. The exterior of this product is made from the softest vegan leather so that you will not have any issues with durability. The leather is mainly black, but at the base, there are two different colors of brown that can be found in the stripes of the beautiful Italian design. Because of the durability of this material, the entire bag is designed to be stain-resistant. This means that even if you spill something on the outside of the bag, you can easily clean the material with some soap, a cloth, and some warm water.

To make this bag more comfortable to carry, there is a handle across the top. This handle is sewn into the bag design on one end; however, the other end is designed with a snap that can be quickly detached from the bag with relative ease. This will allow you to put the handle over the top of a shower rod or at another location that will make it easy to reach your toiletries when you need them. When the bag is unzipped and dangling, it is only about 13.4 inches from top to bottom.

The interior of the bag is designed with one large pocket on one side and two smaller pockets on the other. The largest pocket is ideal for shampoos, soaps, and lotions, but the smaller two pockets allow you to separate things like your toothbrush and razors from the majority of your toiletries. In addition, these pockets are all designed to be water-resistant. This means that if any spills happen inside the bag, they will not reach the exterior leather because of the plastic pockets. This inner lining is also designed to be stain-resistant, which gives you extra durability in the overall quality of the bag.

To help ensure the bag is of the utmost quality, all of the material uses thick thread and double stitching to keep it nice and secure. Each pocket is also closed with a YKK zipper, which is one of the most reliable products for closing bags in the world. This can be the ideal gift for any man in your life who likes to travel, and it also comes with a lifetime warranty. This means that if anything happens to the bag during your ownership of it, it will be replaced or repaired for you free of charge.

The Titan by Vetelli

If you are looking for a more compact bag, then the second option that we are going to review may be ideal for your travel needs. This bag is 9.0 inches wide, 3.5 inches high, and 6.0 inches deep. This makes it the perfect size to use as a carry-on, to pack in your luggage, or to fit in a backpack for an overnight trip. This bag is also designed to be one of the most durable options that you can find on the market; it is made from vegan leather, which does not support animal cruelty. The majority of this bag is black leather, but there are two brown stripes on the top of the bag that give it an Italian Renaissance twist.

On the outside of the bag, there is only one set of zippers that you can use to access the internal pockets. This bag is fitted with YKK zippers, which are designed to be some of the strongest options that you can get on this type of bag. The exterior of the bag is also designed to be water-resistant, so if you are traveling in an area with a lot of heat and humidity, the surface will not suffer. In addition, to make sure that this bag does not rip at the seams during your travels, all of the edges and the materials are double stitched together.

Inside, the bag is mainly one single compartment where all of your toiletries can be stored. There is also a zipper compartment on the top that has a clear plastic window that makes it very easy to find some of your smaller essentials. At the very top of the main compartment, there is also a smaller hidden pocket that will give you additional space for some of your toiletries. The pocket is rather slim, so it may be an ideal spot to store some small valuables as well.

The interior liner in this bag is made from the same type of material that is used in hot air balloons and parachutes, which means that it is a very durable material that will not easily rip or tear. Both the interior liner and the exterior leather are designed to be stain-resistant and water-resistant. This will protect any clothing that you have inside your luggage from any spills that may occur within this bag.

On the outside of the bag, there is a small handle that makes it convenient to carry, especially if you are going to be traveling often. If you would like to hang the bag in your bathroom, this handle can also be used for that purpose. This bag is also covered by a lifetime warranty, so if it is not up to your standards or something happens to the bag, it will be replaced free of charge, or if you prefer, you can simply get your money back for the purchase.

The Vasari by Vetelli

The final bag that is being introduced into the Vetelli line is a little bit different than the first two. However, it is quite a large bag with dimensions of about 15.5 inches wide, 11 inches high, and 3.8 inches deep, so you will have plenty of space for all of your toiletries. The exterior of this bag is made from very durable, vegan-friendly leather. This is also a bag that is rated to not tear or rip easily. The majority of the exterior is black leather, but the strap and the handle are brown, which creates a nice contrast. In addition, this material is also designed to be water resistant, which means that even on a rainy day, the material will not be ruined.

In addition to the quality material, this bag is made with YKK zippers and connectors that will give them a more durable level of functionality. The clasp on the outside of the bag is also designed to close magnetically, which will help save you time when you are in a hurry. The hangar, which is located on the bag itself, can be detached from the bag so that it can be hung from your towel rack or another surface.

When it comes to the inside of this bag, it is plenty large enough for all of your toiletries to fit with ease in the bag. The interior is coated with a tan material that is designed to be stain-resistant as well as water-resistant. If anything spills that is inside of the bag while you are traveling, it will most likely not damage the bag or anything else.

While the two smaller pockets are designed to make it easier to find smaller things, the main compartment is designed to hold larger items like shampoo, soap, and lotion with ease. . On the main compartment, there is also a hidden pocket that will not hold a lot, but it is ideal for things like a pair of fingernail clippers or tweezers that you may need to use during your trip. The other pocket, which is located on the top portion of the bag, is designed with a see-through liner that is designed to store things like a toothbrush or toothpaste.

As with all of the other bags that we have looked at, this option also comes with a lifetime warranty. This warranty will ensure that if the bag rips unexpectedly, it will be replaced or repaired at no additional cost to you.

Final Thoughts

In the guide, we have looked at three new Vetelli bags that you can consider for your toiletries when you are traveling. Each one of these options differ slightly in design, functionality, and size. They can be used as a carry-on when you travel, or the bags can be easily placed in your suitcase to make sure that all of your toiletries are contained in the same area. All three of these bag options are great dopp kits for men that you can consider, but only one is going to be right for your needs. Before you make a decision, take another look at the features that you will want your new bag to have and see which options fit you the best. Once you know what you want, go ahead and make a purchase.
