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.
Travel Shaving Bags
A well-made men's toiletry case will hold your shaving supplies neatly and conveniently.
Tip: When traveling by air, use the plastic bottles included in the bottom compartment to hold your shampoo, conditioner, etc. They are just the right size to be allowed through airport security.
Tip: Rinse and dry your razor thoroughly before you put it in the protective case, especially if you're leaving it in there between trips. Storing it clean and dry will help prevent corrosion of both the razor and blade.
Safety Razor Travel Case
Tip: If possible, hang your full-sized brush to dry each night, and especially before you store it between trips, to help preserve the bristles.

Travel Safety Razors
Travel-sized or lightweight double edge razors are easy to carry in your shaving travel kit.
Tip: Remove the razor blade before disassembling the razor and storing it in the leather case. It will be much safer to handle, especially when you are tired from travelling!

Shaving Travel Accessories
Even the largest travel kit is not too large for everything you need. Compact shaving accessories fit handily into your bag and help you look neat even in the most basic conditions.

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.
Retractable Shaving Brush
Tip: If you have trouble building a great lather with soft soap, try a stiffer brush. A lower-quality badger hair or even boar bristles may do the trick for you!
