Sometimes I'm on the Go, with the GoBag, other times I travel more leisurely and can bring more and other shave gear. It is for the later I invested in a Omega 50014 travel brush.
I broke the brush in soon after getting it as per what seems to the recommended way; whipping up lather in my hand, then rinse and repeat. Letting it dry and then doing again a few times broke it in nicely, leaving me with a brush that is soft with plenty of backbone and just enough scritch for my tastes. Once broken in it behaves as a shaving brush should - ie.: it makes lather out of shaving creams and soaps, and helps you put the result on your face... in a most enjoyable way, off course.
The brush is a little on the small side, but that's not really an issue when face lathering - it still holds plenty enough for two passes and then some. Overall I'm quite satisfied with the Omega 50014 so far. If you're looking for a travel brush and don't mind it drying slower than a synth would, I suggest getting one of these.
