Wet Shaving Travel Kits

Updated on October 1, 2014

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.

Whether you are buying a shaving razor travel case for yourself, or as a gift, you'll find great ideas here on assembling the perfect kit.
