    I'm off on hols soon and wife has said I need one of these. I've had a look around and I'm wondering if it would be better to get a smaller type courier bag and kill two birds. Anyone got any experience of either and best source? I don't want it too big, but enough for the usual detritus. It will be in addition to, not instead of, hand luggage on a plane (well women get away with it, why not men...........:biggrin:)

    Just wear a cycling jersey, and bung everything in the rear pockets! :biggrin:
     
  3. That'll be comfortable on an aeroplane seat.

    I think it's because I use her as a camel that she wants me to have one (no ships of the desert jokes here please :biggrin:).

    I've got one:biggrin:

    Bought for £15 in River Island. Very handy and had brass neck attachment too. I wear it with pride. If anyone threatens my manliness, I ensure I carry a porn mag in it so I can whip it out :biggrin: and beat any nay-sayer round the chops with it.

    Take the plunge Chris!

    I wish more men would use them. There's no worse look than a guy who's stuffed loads of, um, stuff in his pockets.

    Do you find you walk with a bit of a skip when wearing it ? :biggrin:

    Apart from keys, wallet and phone surely there is nothing else to worry about carrying ? It would be a cold day in hell before I would ever go out with a "man bag". It's just not right !

    I don't understand why:

    1. you don't just call them 'bags'; and,
    2. anyone has a problem with carrying a bag.

    What is the reluctance supposed to imply? That you are too macho to do the shopping? Or that you've got servants to carry things for you?

    Bags are for carrying brushes and make-up. Men have little need for such accoutrements.

    It's a slippery slope, before you know it you will start shaving your legs and applying moistouriser before your ride.
