And it is are also a great place to break something. If you fall, unless you tripped over something, odds are you are going back. At the small of your back, all the pressure will be on your spine, unlike a pack where you will have pressure on your shoulders and hips.

Also, I hate to say this, but SOB carry isn't very subtle. It looks subtle to most people. Most people also have to ask "does my butt look big in this?" It shows horribly in my experience.

Yup. Shirt (or jacket) tail hangs up on whatever you have in the sob, bend over and it "prints" horribly. Not comfortable at all to sit with. Looks good on paper, not worth much in the real world...

hmm.... if I take off my shirt, and wear it a geek convention, I might pass for a wookie. Other than that, not subtle. :P

Hi Blast,

Not taking issue here, just making an observation...with regards to placing things in stairwells, this will likely vary by your building and intensity of your buildings evacuation and emergency preparedness.

As a member of our buildings safety & evacuation group, I can assure you that if one of our 400-500 buildings occupants noted a new box or bag in the stairwell, that Faclilities would get an immediate call...

Additonally, our building, like most others is subject to Fire Marshall inspections. Virtually without fail, they check the stairwells for any stored materials etc. If there is anything in the stairwells, we get an immediate violation notice.

Regards,
Comanche7
