What is your travel kit for straight razor shaving?

I will make my first long trip for 1 or 2 months after i began straight razor shaving. so i wonder what you carry with you for your long trips and suggestions as well.

A shorty razor (or a GD, depending on how worried I am about it getting nicked out of my Luggage.) in a kangaroo leather wrap.



A rollable kangaroo strop in a case.



CrOx on leather for touch-ups (but I haven't needed to use that on a trip yet.)


+ A wee scot, and a shave stick, usually DR Harris Arlington.

1 straight (maybe 2 for variety) in leather pouches (great shavers, but also ones that I could live without if lost in luggage).
Simpsons Case brush in container.
Stick of Valobra.
Small (~5 oz) bottle of witchhazel.
Smaller bottle of Alt-Innsbruck or Proraso AS.
I usually roll up and pack a strop as well.
...all in a convenient Air France zippered bag that they used to hand out with sock and eye mask for sleeping.

No hones - not necessary for a week or two.

I take all six of my razors, my strop, soap, brush and alum. For a trip that long, I would probably pack all three of my aftershaves as well.
