You frequently mention your backpack in your posts but now that I think about it it is odd . What would you need for a day in the city besides a wallet ?

Instead of the backpack, may I suggest (as worn here by Hugh Jackman, People magazine's 2008 sexiest man alive--perhaps because of the murse?)

I think that is a great idea . I really like to carry teeny tiny purses and I'm constantly having to add something for my So ( a camera , his wallet ,tickets ) . This way I could be purse free and he could carry the camera , the tickets and my wallet .

Would you not call these murses pictured above "messenger bags"? When my son was in college I thought I would try to spruce him up a bit(he likes tattered and un-stylish) and bought him a Tumi messenger bag to replace his shabby backpack(he refused to buy a new one, we sent it back to the factory once to have it refurbished, had to be the same one). The messenger bag in question was black, plain, and masculine or so I thought. You should have seen the horror on his face when I showed it to him, and he blurted out "I'm not carrying a purse!" I gave it to my sister-in-law who was delighted to have it for her laptop.

I get you. My son would probably rather commit hari kari rather than carry a man purse.

That is quite the expensive messenger bag--I'm sure your SIL was thrilled!

She was! She travels a lot for business and pounced on it like you wouldn't believe. Actually, I bought the bag at Marshalls, and it was something like 60 or 70 bucks 7 years ago or so.

I see that Ha still wouldn't share the list of "stuff" that he must have with him at all times.

Actually, it is not a bad idea. When we are on travel and exploring a city on foot - mostly in Europe as US cities are not usually not that walkable - we always have a backpack to keep the "stuff". One simply does not "wander" around Phoenix, or LA. It appears Ha likes to wander around Seattle on foot a lot, so it makes perfect sense.

Same here when traveling from home we carry a backpack. Mainly when we will be away for more than an hr they go in the car. Water, and whatever else we want in it. I thought something like this was standard issue these days.

Good Lord - man up! When we are out and about I have the gal carry my necessaries - you know; hair brush, styling gels, skin moisturizers, nail care items, lip gel, various SPF rating sun protectors. She's got a purse - what's a woman for if not to carry all that stuff?

Based upon this song, I'm guessing Mick must carry a man purse.

Ooooooh Purron...Indiana Jones...oh yeah...

Men have backpacks, satchels, briefcases, etc... If they have all of this stuff available, what would they keep in their pockets?

In my case, billfold and cellphone and keys. In my pack go umbrella, water bottle, dental hygeine tools, paperback book, Kleenex, sunglasses and reading glasses, small notebook and pen, nuts to snack on, etc!

Of course an umbrella! After all, it is Seattle. I was going to guess rain gear of some type.
