Looking for a new way to organize your tech gear for on-the-go use? Check out the Tech Dopp Kit from Harbor London!
Harbor London is a UK-based brand that specializes in leather goods ranging from bags, sleeves for electronics, wallets, and small accessories/goods. They advertise themselves as creating honest, high-quality, functional products to help you carry better.
Today I’ll share with you my experience testing out Harber London’s Tech Dopp Kit.
Harber London makes beautifully crafted goods. The leather of their Tech Dopp Kit has a rich color and a buttery soft feel.
Their products comfortably fill a niche of upgraded luxury for daily tools that would make a welcome gift for many people.

Harber London specializes in everyday leather goods. I want to emphasize the “everyday” aspect.
My Experience With Harber London’s Tech Dopp Kit
I had the option of choosing between the Wallet Organizer for Smartphones and the Tech Dopp Kit. I know a lot of people already use products that combine their phone and credit cards/ID. Even though these products have been out for a while, I’m just not that brave.
I tend to lose things very easily and the idea of losing my wallet and phone at the same time is nightmare-inducing.
Therefore, opting for the Tech Dopp Kit was an easy choice for me.
It took around 2 weeks for the Tech Dopp Kit to arrive at my house. Although Amazon Prime has spoiled me, considering it came from the U.K.; that’s not terrible.
I chose the navy option and I’m really glad that I did. To me, the deep, even color is absolutely beautiful. I’ve always leaned towards darker leather goods but I didn’t want the standard black or dark brown.
Harber London’s navy option is great because it’s a dark leather but also unique enough, because it’s navy, that it stands out without being bright or showy.
Now, I’m not one who typically cares about the unboxing experience. However, the Tech Dopp Kit arrived in a black almost satchel-like box.
Inside was black tissue paper, for protection, along with a thank you card and discount code card with 15% off a future order if you share/tag Harber London on Instagram or TikTok.
My first thought, when I held the Dopp kit, was this is very soft and supple leather. No stitch was out of place and it felt great in my hands.
I instantly racked my brain for different ways to use it in my daily life.
Since I work from home, I don’t typically have to leave the house. However, during my testing period, I decided to start going to coffee shops to do some work in order to offer a better product review.
During the review period, I really enjoyed the dedicated pockets for my mouse, cords, phone, sunglasses, and even keys.
It handles those items that I typically just throw in my Away Everything Bag.
Typically, I use this bag to carry larger electronics (laptop, iPad etc) whenever I travel. I enjoy it because it simply slides onto my Away Bigger Carry-On Suitcase and makes travel less cumbersome.
Typically, by the time I’m ready to unpack at my destination, many items have been thrown all over the place. Despite my genuine enjoyment of the Dopp kit, I recognize that it’s purely a luxury item and would make a great gift option for many.
From a functionality standpoint, my primary critique is that it does not open wider, and it doesn’t have a 270-degree zipper.

Who’s The Tech Dopp Kit For?
In my opinion, this Tech Dopp Kit and many of Harber London’s products are designed for people who are drawn towards higher-end products that are designed to last.
Their products would also make great gifts for many. It would be an especially good gift for someone who values higher-end products but can’t otherwise afford them. You might also consider gifting them to people who are especially thrifty when it comes to non-essentials.
Who It’s Not For
Harber London products, especially this Tech Dopp Kit, are not for thrift shoppers who don’t place any higher perceived value on leather goods.
Also, if you consider yourself a purely functional shopper, then I’d say that the Tech Dopp Kit isn’t necessarily for you. It’s beautiful and useful, for someone like me.
However, I’d still classify it as a luxury and not a necessity. There are plenty of cheaper, cost-effective items you can purchase at a much lower price point.
Harber London products, including my Tech Dopp Kit, are made in Spain and distributed through Harber London; a U.K.-based company. For those who place a higher value on American-made, these products are most likely not for you.

This Tech Dopp Kit is a product that I hope to enjoy for years to come. It’s well made, beautiful, and would make a great gift for many.
