Anyone here regularly carry a satchel bag, otherwise known as a "man purse", a "murse", or a "man bag"?? I'm thinking I might want to start carrying
one. Not talking about a backpack here, I have plenty of those. I know, I know...it's kind of girly, but I'm not really worried anyone is going to
challenge my manhood, big, ugly and scarred up as I am.
I always find I have more stuff in my hands and pockets than I can possibly carry, and I usually wind up leaving something behind (which drives me
crazy). To be quite honest, I'm kind of jealous of my wife and her purse and I'm always handing stuff to her to carry for me (which isn't fair). I
mean, where else can I carry all my tampons, birth control pills, makeup and lipstick??? J/K! Seriously though, I've usually got car keys, office
and other keys, my wallet, a small notebook, my sunglasses, my phone, water, a knife, a small light, a handkerchief and a bunch of other stuff.
Historically, I've always carried a small backpack with me, but there's two problems with this. 1.) I usually wind up collecting stuff in there until
it weighs a ton, and...2.) I usually wind up repeatedly transferring select items out of, and back into, my pack to my person for short excursions
like the store or whatever. This takes time, and it also creates another problem; in town a backpack in a car is a target for theft. A satchel, man
bag or 'murse' (if you must) seems like it would work for me. Then I'd just carry it everywhere.
So, I'm wondering if anyone here regularly carries a smaller bag like this on a regular basis? Also, if you saw a big bearded ugly cowboy carrying
one, would you be snickering? I mean, I do kind of worry a little bit about looking like an idiot.
Thoughts / comments?
