orb9220: And I will Not Carry a Purse! :-)

 

But a "man-purse" is so in style right now. Don't you want to be stylish?

If a man needs something that big to carry his stuff in, he better be carrying a hockey bag with his equipment.

Re: Sony 13.3" e-Reader Begins Trials

I carry a messenger bag with me pretty much everywhere I go.

 

Sorry not all of us fit into your narrow 19th century definition of "manliness".

Re: Sony 13.3" e-Reader Begins Trials

I've never quite understood why so many men seem to be terrified about the ide of carrying some sort of bag.  While I am a minimalist when it comes to "purse" (I prefer to call mine a "bag") and I also can't see why so much of women's clothing omits the highly useful pocket,I think that having some sort of bag in which to tote about Stuff like tablets oe e-readers is simply practical--regardless of one's gender.

Re: Sony 13.3" e-Reader Begins Trials

I've got a bag I carry my laptop in and I've got a bag I carry my lunch and book/eReader in. It's not that I'm opposed to a useful bag, but those things are as big as my suitcase.

Well to be honest I'm a photographer.
So my Camera bag/Messenger Shoulder bag goes everywhere with me.

And the nook color slides in one of the pockets.

I use to not understand women's obsessions of finding the right bag.

But now been thru half-a-dozen different photo bags trying to find the right one for me over the years.
Seems I failed tho finding the right one to match my shoes! :smileytongue:

I've always felt a messenger bag was a good masculine alternative for a guy who needs/wants some kind of a bag but doesn't want to carry around something as formal as a briefcase. But the bags in those pictures? I wouldn't be caught dead with them - not even as a woman. I think they look hideous no matter which gender is carrying them.

Re: Sony 13.3" e-Reader Begins Trials

I hope everybody actually looked at the linked page before getting upset about any murse references. They're pretty ridiculous.

 

I carried a "euro" bag back in the 80's. A Samsonite briefcase was the American standard at the time, but it was a pain on the bus. Of course, I used to carry a lot of books around back then.

 

I think most computer bags would qualify as a purse, no matter what manly ballistic nylon material it's made of. When you need wheels on your bag, regardless of gender, it's too damn big! I finally came to my senses and downsized to the point that I have a half-messenger bag that I can stuff my laptop, tablet and a few travel necessities into, and not a bloody thing more. My shoulders feel much better now.
