Exactly how often are you cutting yourself that you need to bring plasters with you everywhere you go?!

I carry a book with me everywhere so I'm a firm believer in carrying a bag. Mine is this kind of style:

Sounds weird to me, not in a sinister murdery type of way, just in a cute OCD way....... :)

So does Jack Bauer.

I also use one. It holds my lunch, umbrella (and a hat, scarf and gloves in winter), wallet, car keys, house keys, glasses case, powerbank and cables, headphones, mini speaker for when I'm at work, a book, notepad, a small bag of medicines (paracetamol, cold & flu capsules, Sinex etc.), a couple of carrier bags in case I buy something too big to fit in the manbag, and a small A-Z, tube map and a train timetable in case I run out of data or the mobile network goes down.

Got this one myself: http://www.tedbaker.com/uk/Mens/Accesso ... 3665-BLACK

Classic look without being chavvy. Practical for stuff I’m carrying rather that bulging pockets with crap. Always acceptable

I've had some fabulous bags down the years. Not including Warp's mum.

Reiss do some good ones and have one at the moment that is very nice. I work from home now though so don't need one for files and the laptop anymore.

I use a canvas rucksack, allegedly German Army surplus (via Amazon), which I reckon makes me look pretty cool. I don't consider it to be a manbag.

The contents this evening on my way home included:
Empty lunch box
Work shirt (I cycle to and from work, and change at the office)
Used gym kit
Keys, wallet, phone, office ID pass
Child's penguin neck cushion
Child's pink unicorn neck cushion

The latter two items being Christmas presents ordered by Mrs SBH with me as delivery boy. The fact that I can complete this task without the world knowing makes my rucksack extra cool.

Only in the very large sporting apparel or plastic carrier variety.

Carting a baby around (paraphernalia up the ass) is a valid excuse for a "murse" or suchlike but beyond that even a dandy fellow such as myself struggles with it. My keys are on a long chain (belt loop) and my cash is in a screwed up receipt-mingled mess in my sky rocket. Can't even be ****ed with a wallet. My dad is the only man that looks cool with a man bag and he's 70.

Not often but I walk everywhere so they are good for blisters and wouldn't you rather have one and not need it than need one and not have it?

True, but:
a) I have a girlfriend
b) not to great with new people anyway
3) I'm carrying a back pack dude, not a strong look

Quality :thup: It's actually either rulebooks for Warhammer or Frostgrave of Ready Player One, I can't stop reading it! So not sure what would be worse. . .

My day to day work bag is a Mulberry satchel type thing. I carry my laptop in that a long with other pieces of detritus.

My travel bag is a Tumi laptop bag. Again for the aforementioned plus cables, adaptors, notebook and pen.

Mines a sort of cross between a satchel and record bag. It's mainly used for transporting the umbrella, a book, my lunch and sometimes additional winter attire.

I would rather split open my scrotum and store everything in that than wear one of those.
