Im getting ready to be on the Go for a short while, so I decided to re-evaluate what goes in the GoBag as far as shaving goes. As I mentioned before, part of the issue in my GoBag is space - or rather lack of space. If I put something in, something else have to come out... I have however replaced the liquid shampoo with a travel sized bar of Mike's Natural Shampoo Bar, so there is some free space. Even so, there is not any huge changes since my last time on the Go:
- Travel sized bottle of Dr Bronner's Peppermint Soap
- Omega #50014 travel boar brush
- Merkur 985CL Open Comb travel razor
- Pack of Lord Platinum
- Lea Shave Stick
- Travel tube of alum
- Travel size bottle of Krampert's Finest Bay Rum

I may or may not change things further... but for now, it's a den away from the den.

Currently carrying the following:

- Parker A1R 4-piece travel razor
- Parker Travel Pure Badger brush
- Pack of Shark Super Chrome blades
- Maca Root shave cream and Maca Root razor relief by The Body Shop

The Parker is more aggressive than I'm used to and still learning how to use properly.

Haha. Go BAG? I haven't had a vacation since 1999.... TRUTH.... If I did I would pack a GEM Damaskeene w/ a new blade. Semogue 630. Some witch hazel, Clubman, and C.O.Bigelow. And a mug of some sort. Plus my Clubman Talc and my Marvy neck duster... Jarvis hair tonic. Mustache Wax.... Hair brush, comb, mustache comb, blow dryer....Gee I'd probably throw a few more things in there. I would not have to limit my space as much as Hans.... THANK GOODNESS !!!

Maybe a GO bag also can be a bug-out bag Smile

The concepts differs not too much - the GoBag is for me the stuff I need when I have to be away from base for a couple of days and up to a week.

I got it from ReUseIt.com as part of a set with bowl, plate, cup and cutlery, that all packed flat. The rest is in my GoBag for eating of... beats eating from the MRE bag.

A quick search with Google points to Amazon as a source for a very similar set without the spoon.

As a side note to being on the Go this time around; two fellow officers with whom I shared lodgings asked about my shave gear. Not sure if I made converts out of them, but all interest is good interest Biggrin

I pack a whole bunch of stuff and have a bigger travel bag. If I need space then, I start dumping the clothes first.
