Travellr XL Leather Dopp Kit

Range Leather’s Travellr XL Leather Dopp Kit, which follows up on their more compact Travellr, is both of these things. It’s capacious enough at 10 inches long and 5 inches tall to hold a full array of toiletries including full-sized tubes of toothpaste, large…

In their place are integrated Air Poles that inflate and stiffen using an electric pump inside the box that’s activated by the flip of a switch….
