Man Purses

Or as I like to call them, my bags of tricks. Each of these has been used for everyday carry at various times. In addition I have a few gym and travel bags that were never used as "man purses."

 

Top: Jansport Odyssey, my largest daypack; Trager Cross-country (12 years old!); Brenthaven backpack (5 years old, a veteran of air travel, many times as the only bag).

 

Middle: Lowepro camera bag, which I used as a small organizer; Eagle Creek travel organizer (large); Trager Bike Messenger laptop bag.

 

Bottom: Two Victorinox waistpacks (used as organizers inside the other ones as well as by themselves); Mountainsmith waistpack (now I use it mostly for outdoorsy stuff) with a few add-ons, especially a strap.

 

Note the absence of MOLLE/PALS webbing, and of Maxpedition, 5.11 tactical, CountyComm, or TadGear. This is only because of path dependency. And may not last.

 

I am too secure in my masculinity to feel it threatened by what I carry.
