I can't do camo but that has potential and is a great price.

Am going to do some searching to see what else has utility.

That one could bring a meeting quickly to order simply by flashing the back cover interior. More importantly, if it is thick enough for a gun then it could carry some other items in that spot.

Something with a thin strap would be great so it could, in an emergency, be carried as a purse or man-bag.

This one from Mead is zippered, 1/5" thick, nicely priced ($22) and well-rated on Amazon.

Minimize the thickness of the notepad inside and you free up even more room.

Found the perfect office EDC bag for women. The Coach black leather "basic bag." Sleek, zippered, cross-shoulder carrying ability, also clutch-size. Goes with any outfit - dressy or jeans.

Here's a "vintage" 90s used bag for sale:

The new version is $198.

20 years back I carried a leather Coach messenger bag while at the Pentagon and it routinely had extra stuff in it. But back then no one inspected the contents of what you carried if you had the right badge. These days I wouldn't want to carry that stuff in and out daily. That said, a Coach bag would make for a very nice survival kit container, in a white collar executive environment.

Coach is some nice stuff, spendy, but Coach does stand behind their product. The stitching on the handle of mine gave way a few years ago and a local Coach retailer sent it in to be fixed. The same piece of leather came back looking like new, no charge. Looking at the current online catalog, my bag is not there.

Dagny... couple of pictures of past attempts at a leather bag... both are for handgun, but have room.. the first is a Coronado Leather Man's handbag... D ring in upper right... Farmer for size comparison



this is a JagWear... but I've replaced the leather strap with a nylon one



PS...liked your analysis of the role Kruschev played in the Cuban Missile Crisis... unfortunately our history books won't be so kind...

I'm in NYC. I always have a whistle and small photon light around my neck (and I don't care who laughs at me in the office). In my pocket inside a 3" x 4" plastic bag (because ladies pants pockets are too small and light for anything heavy or big) is a breastmilk bag for water/liquid, facemask, triple ointment and a small piece of duct tape. This is always on me -- no matter what. Good for crane and building collapses, smoke conditions, etc. I EDC other items in my tote and jacket/coat, but that won't help me if I'm in a conference room when something happens. If it's not on me...it doesn't exist.

P.S. I'm glad your daughter is all right!
