When I talk about my GoBag, I talk about the bag I grab whenever I have to go somewhere for my job - for training, classes or other happenings that usually means long days and little sleep. But no sleep for several days in a row don't mean that you have to end up as a shambling, unkempt zombie... on the contrary; with the right gear in the GoBag and a fifteen minute break you can be a neat and dapper walking dead (lets face it; shaving does not replace sleep).
So what goes in my GoBag to allow me to manage this transformation? Not a whole lot to be honest... have a look:

From the back and left:
  • Alum stick in a travel container
  • A travel sized thing of Krampert's Finest Bay Rum aftershave
  • A bottle of WSP Matterhorn beard oil
  • A small styptic pencil, just in case
  • A BEA shavestick
  • An Omega #50014 travel brush
  • A "Khaki Kit" with a vintage Gillette Old and a pack of blades
I haven't had to use the styptic pencil yet, and I've just switched from my vintage one hundred and one year old original khaki kit to a modern recreation I received recently.
While I could streamline it further by changing to smaller bottles for the aftershave and beard oil, I wouldn't really save much space... and since coworkers with less forethought or packing skills sometimes ask if they could borrow a little, it's nice to have extra.
As you can see, it don't take a lot if items to have a good shave while on the Go... and not a lot of space either.

Because of my condition I rarely, very rarely travel  anymore but when I do my kit includes a DR Harris stick because they have the best packaging of sticks, I don't know why everyone doesnt do something similar,  anyway its Lavender,  my pop's tv special superspeed with original case, an old nickel   blade bank with a couple of NOS Gillette Stainless blades, a small travel size bottle of clubman and usually my "Hyde Park" boar.

I’m down to the minimum for carry-on purposes: a Gillette sensor, Simpson’s synth, d.r. Harris shave stick, and a travel-sized sterling barbershop balm.
