    Thanks, that's just what I was looking for, I've been using an old military surveyors bag and it's about to fall apart. I have no problem using one, it holds my Xoom tablet, ecig stuff and spare pens & pads. It seems the younger generation has to have they're hands full instead of using a bag, beats me, I like to have my hands free.

    You might want to be careful about that knife.
    The blade is long enough to be considered a
    concealed weapon if you put that in a messenger style bag.

    Funny answers, expecially the Hello Kitty bag. :D
    Seriously, though, google m51 engineer bag. Nothing effeminate there, well except that they call them [something which seriously calls your masculinity into question] in the army. :facepalm:

    True. Since that rig is the only sheath I have for that blade, I can't carry it in my murse. I wish I had a better pic to show off the damascus. I have a bit of a collection, so I'll have to go through it and make a decision on a murse blade.

    ...and I thought women had accessorizing problems ;)

    But really, I think the single most entertaining thing in this thread is Off Topic's signature line. That earned a chuckle!!

    Good news is we don't have to worry too much about coordinating colors. Black, OD green, khaki, or camo and we're good. :D

    Sorry guys, no matter how you try to hide it, if it's slung across your body it's a purse. Might as well bypass the cammo, black, OD green and just go with pink.

    The ones I've been looking at (leaning toward the M51 Engineer bag), and the ones I've seen people wearing don't look much like purses to me.

    I bet they're only going to become more acceptable over time. People carry a lot of stuff around these days. Seems ridiculous trying to stuff more and more into your pockets.

    I guess it's a matter of function vs. fashion. I'll take function. I have too much stuff for pockets. Even if I narrow it down to just the necessities, I have phone, wallet, keys, PV, extra battery, juice, sunglasses... too much for my pockets. I'm not going to worry too much about whether or not my bag makes a manly enough fashion statement. And the people who do worry about that kind of thing aren't the type that I care much about the opinion of anyway.

    I don't know if they still have it but I got a camo belt pouch from Cheaper than dirt that holds my tac flashlight, cell phone, leatherman, a puck mod and a large ego case. I think it was about $10.

    SHMBO hates my purse. Well, actually, she likes it...She just hates it on me.

    When she gripes about being seen in public with me using it, I tell her, "No problem, I'll get rid of it... and get a fanny pack."

    Conversation over.

    Oddly enough, I've not gotten the response from my knuckle-dragging-redneck co-workers I expected. When I ask they say it's the "Hangover" movie that changed the cultural perception.:2cool:

    Yeah, I remember getting crap in Ohio about 7 years ago for rocking messenger bags. Sometimes guys have crap they want to have on them too. Bags are bags as long as you're not sporting pink sequens and a thin strap.

    I moved to Chicago at the time, and all they guys/business men had them. It's even more acceptable 7 years later. If people are judging you bc of this, you live in too small of a town. (not meant as an insult)

    What about a small backpack type of bag?

    It's not what you were originally looking for, but it's suitable. I'm female, and I'm looking for a backpack type carrier for my own things. I'm tired of having to hold a purse or have it slip off my shoulder. These are a bit masculine though, so their not my style.
