Wet Shaving Travel Kits
Shaving Travel Case for Wet Shavers
Wet shaving needs a bit of gear, but you can carry it conveniently wherever you go. Whether you're traveling for business or pleasure, going to school, taking a hike or joining the military, a convenient shaving travel case will carry everything you need.
"Wet shaving" means using a real double-edge safety razor or even a straight razor, along with a brush to whip up lather from solid soap. It's widely known as the best method to get a smooth shave and protect your skin, which is even more important when you're roughing it away from home.
Whether you carry a travel-sized razor and shaving brush, or your regular full-sized ones, you'll need a good-quality men's toiletry bag, and then travel-size shaving toiletries and supplies to fill it. But you can also get cases and covers for your full-size razors and supplies.

This one is fog-free so you can use it in the shower. A removable suction hook lets you hang the mirror anywhere, then pack it up for your next destination.
Tip: Be sure to rinse and dry your brush well before retracting and packing it. Blot the bristles and leave it open overnight, if possible. Keeping it dry will prevent the knot from rotting and shedding bristles.
