You also may not use all the items in the kit, but eventually you might need to. This is what some of us call preparation. To help you on your way, I put together a list of the must have items in your Dropp Kit. In the end it is a personal thing, so make sure to make changes where applicable.

History of the Dopp Kit
The name derives from early 20th century leather craftsman Charles Doppelt, a German immigrant to the United States, who invented his toiletry case in 1919. The kits became widely known during the Second World War when they were issued to GIs, and since then have been a must for every true man.
