I have two of these canisters - an older version and the newer version (the only difference really being that the newer kit comes with a hook so that it can be hung up; the older comes with a buckle/clip system for the same purpose). Both are very durable (reminds me of the TNF Camp Duffel), very practical, and your belongings will stay protected due to the cushioning from the padding. I use the older kit for gear I don't want to get broken (SteriPen, MSR pocket rocket, headlamp, SnowPeak lantern - extra mantles, matches, and a pocket knife fit perfectly into the mesh pocket) and I use the newer case as a toiletry kit because it hangs and has a mirror (which I don't really use). If you are worried about the size, your toiletries will easily fit in the canister even if you aren't the lightest of packers (provided you aren't using full-sized shampoo, toothpaste, etc.). Probably a bit pricey for it being a toiletry kit but it is bombproof and has the TNF reputation.
The best Dopp Kit.

Nice organized interior - mesh keeps things where you want them - hangs up - and who doesn't love the bomb proof base camp laminate. These things looks cool (Miniature Base camp duffel) and are the perfect size. Can fit in checked bags or a backpack easily. My only complaint would be the mirror attachment. The one that comes with these is pretty chintzy. I went to my local REI and picked up a 3x4 acrylic mirror to replace the standard one and now it's good to go. Def. recommend this item!
