that's only my day to day list - doesn't include the list for trips abroad and the one for stroppy Hezbo/Assad/Hamas/ISIS and sundry other of the chav neighbours around here (spare hydrashok, Guardian Angel pepper gel pistol, tri-atropine, last will & testament etc)
My manbag is called a Vango cyclo 25Litre. Old and battered it`s always hanging off my right shoulder. It contains a flask of tea and a small bottle of milk,pens,notebook, two knives, reading glasses and Lens Wipes,Camping+Caravan Mag,various edibles,lots of keys chewing gum, tissues, fag lighters but no fags,small bottle of hand sanitizer,and occasionally a bicycle pump and repair kit.
So a man bag basically a wallet for showoff's then ??
I just explained to my Dad what a man bag was. He was not receptive to the idea of one and was very negative about them, fuelled by the half dozen tins of beer he's just necked, and described the men who use such a thing with a phrase that rhymes with "clucking hoofs" .. He's now ranting that the users of such bags "probably keep their fanny plugs and lip gloss" in them etc etc.
Being honest, my man bag contains a diary/notebook, some carrier bags, a book about the Soviet version of the B29 (which I keep for long train journeys), a lock knife (Opinel) - the bag comes hiking/camping too which is why that's there - some old pens and a mobile phone charger. And a pair of clean socks, left over from camping, that I keep forgetting to take out. In the week it also contains my lunch. The bag looks OK on the outside but is a mess inside and, also being honest, I don't really need it. It is a comfort bag; it feels a bit more purposeful walking about with one.
Don't usually carry one except for going to work. It's got a towel, a brolly in the side pocket, charger for my phone, battery pack for sundry items, magnifying glass (computers in work have silly small serial number stickers). That's about it.
