My job requires some travel and I don't really want to take my normal brushes and stick them in my bag. I was thinking about one of those twist brushes but what I found looked very pricey. Any one know of a affordable twist type? Let's here your favs. BTW I did see the Omega travel, that one looks ok.

For traveling I use a Body Shop synthetic brush - it dries so fast it's dry when it comes time to pack the bags. It's not a twisty, but it works Smile

My favourite travel brush (that I own) is the Simpsons Major (in Super).

The holder conveniently transitions to an extension of the handle. It's also open ended, so I'm not too worried about packing the brush away wet (although I do try to avoid it).

I can't be bothered pulling it out of my wash bag, so here's a stock pic from the Simpsons website...

My holy grail travel brush...

[attachment=1507]

Classic 1 (Manchurian) LE (shipped with travel case).

If I ever buy another travel brush, I hope it's this one. There was only one listed on the Simpsons website and I was too slow (I guess there is always the bespoke option).

I usually take my Mühle Synthetic Silvertip Fibres on business trips with me.

Dries extremely fast and the feeling of the tips is not similar to badger hair but quite nice:

I like the Frank Shave Synthetic - it is cheap, feels great, builds a great lather and dries in moments. Works for me.

I have a really big pill bottle from the vet's office that will fit pretty much every brush I own. I just take whichever one strikes me before I leave. The only caveat being I won't take the most recently used brush so that the brush at least starts very dry.

Ditto. Although I just bought a Simpson Wee Scot so that little guy is a nice alternative.

Wee Scot is my favorite, but I sometimes pack my Omega synthetic

I have a nice Vie-Long badger (El Toro Ganso) that I got from BullGoose that fits nicely into a Muhle travel brush holder. A little bit of luxury when I am on the road!

Thanks for the replies, I think if the brush is labeled travel or twist it's gonna cost you.

Any one have any experience with a Kingsley Pure Bristle Shave Brush-Travel Brass/Nickel Plated?
Here is the link http://www.amazon.com/Kingsley-Bristle-B...B001S0LU5U
Any opinions on this would be appreciated.

Also, I hope to add a new Muhle synthetic here soon and it will likely become my default travel brush due to its drying abilities. Just can't decide which one to get yet!

I have two firm favourites for travelling:

1st is a Morris & Forndran "Turnback" in Super Badger.

2nd is a Progress Vulfix "Old Original: 2273 in Super Badger, Chrome Cannister.

Both super performer's with creams & soap's.

I have put over put 15000 miles of air and car travel on a Muhle silvertip synthetic since last fall and it has worked perfect. Dries fast and has not dropped a fibre yet

How do you guys dry your brushes when you are traveling? Just use a towel and place it on the sink afterwards? Can't hang it upside down since I don't take my stand with me.
