if your shampoo, shower gel and rest of your grooming essentials could talk, they would probably tell you that leaving them standing in a bag whilst in transits would be a better idea. alas, they couldn’t and hence till this day, dopp kit, washbags or whatever you call it, still looks like glorified shoe bags. well, not anymore, cos’ bespoke leather goods maker Hard Graft has just the solution and it is called Refresh Dopp Kit. ok, the name don’t quite do its vertical design any justice, but now you know. so why should bother with vertical washbags? the truth is, you don’t, but if you want not to dig a ton of things before reaching one, then vertical is the way to go and besides, a lot of our grooming products, be it men’s or ladies’, are by nature, standing so why make them lie down?
as with Hard Graft’s tradition, Refresh Dopp Kit is handcrafted by skilled craftsmen in Italy from premium vegetable tanned Italian leather and heavy duty British wool. it is expandable and can contract according to your needs, and has a metal zip keeps things sealed in. it is pretty sizable, measuring 5.5 inches in diameter and stands up to 8.6 inches tall, so it should fit most, if not all, of your grooming stuff. it sure sounds and looks awesome, but all the awesomeness comes with a pretty cool price tag too and by ‘cool’, we are talking about a good 159 quid or about US$268.
