I have a man purse with me whenever I go out, it is my wife... I just hand her what I need to have carried for me and it goes into her hand bag, or as I call it (the great abyss), when it goes in there it is hard to find. LOL

this.

If she isn't with me, I do without. Carry a VISA and $$ wrapped around it, and I'm good to go. No phone, wallet, keys, bookie slips, put-call orders...nothin'

It's a very peaceful way of walking around our world...

I occasionally carry a "murse" to the great amusement of my friends. It is a black nylon over the shoulder type bag with molle straps/strips or whatever you call them. Load out varies according to specifics of the day.
Before I retired, I carried water bottles, spare radio, spare flashlight, night vision device, camera, 3 or 4 extra 30rnd mags, about a dozen extra duty weapon mags, a couple dozen 12 gauge shells (both slugs and 00), camera, etc. Coworkers used to joke that between my bag and car trunk, I could take over most third world countries! BUT, they always called me first for the bad stuff!

After retirement, it's crammed with camera gear, insect repellant, water, and food; you know, just the essentials.

I keep another one loaded as a bail out bag. It's contents are enough to survive the "coming zombie apocalypse" , but it's just a grab and go bag kept near the door.

Gun, spare ammo, badge & ID, and flashlight are carried on my person, never in a bag that I could be separated from. Cell phone stays in car if at all possible. I'm retired, no one needs to contact me instantly anymore, just leave a message!! Plus I'm half deaf and don't always hear the phone even when it's in my pocket, much less when it's in a bag.

I agree... if you feel comfortable with it hen carry it. However that being said I can't imagine my husband , son, SIL carrying a tote bag or wearing a fanny pack. Back pack or duffle bag yes .. but it probably would be a rare occasion. DH carries thin wallet, a phone which clips on his belt and the key or fab of the vehicle he is driving.

I use a backpack - you use a bag - it's all the same from a utility standpoint. Since having a bout with swine flu this winter - I gave up the smokes and lighter. Bought a new camera with the money saved... and the bag it goes in hold lots of things including widget wires and warts folder.

If you're as tough or even tougher than Jack Bauer, then by all means carry one.

Otherwise, just carry a backpack.

Back packs are a great idea. My with quit using diaper bags with our last kid. He is 11 months old. With the backpack diaper bag she has both hands to hold on to him and be able to chase the 4 yr old at the same time.

To keep both hands free for picking through merchandise while shopping or reading a magazine while the better half shops, have a look at the Tilly Endurables website. Tilly makes everything from a great floating hat with a credit card/money/drivers license pocket in it to allow you to carry all your important stuff while you are visiting the pool deck at the Sunnyvale Nudist Camp, to a pick pocket proof travelers vest that will carry food, water, camera, flashlight, swiss army knife, walking stick (or baton) while keeping your money, passport, etc. secure from skilled pick pockets. It can even be packed with all the heavy stuff on the "off" side to keep the load balanced if you feel the need to "pack" while seeing the sights in National Monuments or troubled suburbs.
