Hey ! Stop that !!!

I don't need a Fatboy... not really .... and I don't want to buy one.
But if all of you go on complimenting the Fatboy, I guess I will have to....

Maxpidition is good, so are the AITES pouches.

Trouble is, they are both pricy, and it's almost impossible to find shoes that match.

Your straight as opposed to what <img src="/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" /> Are you crooked? Purse is an old and honourable term. When you go on board a ship you give valuables to the Purser. Read literature and men will mention their purse. Scotsmen wear kilts AND a purse, also called a sporran. Nobody accuses a highland scot of being a crossdresser, who carry purses. All the gays I know use wallets. Hey, we're manly men fighting the great female lifeforce called Mother Nature. Only metrosexual clothing designers worry about such connotations.

"you forgot a name - an old, respected REAL name A "Possibles bag" at one time, all hunters/woodsmen carried a "possibles" bag ".

D'oh! That is one of my favorite terms as well. Thanks for the reminder.

I was at REI today looking at possibles bags. There are several from Eagle Creek. None fit my niche, but a nice selection.

There was one from the swiss army folks that doubles as a mini backpack, but not my cup of tea.

There was a very small bag by a company called "Pacsafe". Too small for my needs.

My favorite was an REI bag called a "personal organizer". This is bigger than my current possibles bag and is a nice middle ground on the way up to a day pack solution. It has nice compartments and many small slots for pens, pencils, and all manor of ETS type toys. It was a very nice setup.

I have the Fatboy which I prefer to call my "Urban Utility Kit". My wife still calls it my Man Purse.

Would it be more justifiable if we created an acronym for PURSE??

old lurker, new poster.

Personally, I carry a fanny pack with my wallet, checkbook and PSK. A Nite-ize pouch for my multi tool and mini maglite (and a pair of hemostats) on my belt. My backpack stays in the car or goes into work with me (also carrying a toiletry kit because sometimes I get stuck at work if my relief doesn't show up).

Always playing with different ways of carrying stuff with me.

I'm just throwing this out there among you guys with separate, not-on-body junk carriers (aka purses):

In a disaster-induced panic, would you remember to take it with you?

I'm just wondering, as when my car caught fire, I left my purse and paycheck and ran like you-know-what. And I've had lots more practice at remembering my purse than most of you.

Like I said, just wondering. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

Yep. Grew up with a BOB under the bed, though, and a woodstove that likes to burp.

When a man dare not speak without malice for fear of giving insult, that is when truth starts to die. Truth is the truest freedom.
