On one hand the woman usually has a purse anyway. So I DO get that she can carry one little thing more for the hubby. But sometimes it's ridiculous. The man doesn't want to carry a lot of stuff himself. But when he wants something he sure asks the wife for a pen, or paper, mints, gum, or a tissue.

Get a bag, a tote, a backpack, briefcase, messenger bag -- and carry your own stuff
I'm the reverse. I hate carrying a purse, so it's not unusual for me to ask my husband if I can put my wallet, chapstick, and keys in his pocket if I'm not wearing something with pockets.

Re: "bags for men," I think backpacks and messenger bags have been pretty ubiquitous for a while, now.

Absolutely.

This is a weird thread; I lot of folks waaay over-thinking the fact that people- or either gender- need to carry stuff sometimes.

I think some people forget that not everyone everywhere commutes by car. For those of us that walk, bike, or use transit, some kind of bag is essential if you want to bring stuff like a laptop or tablet, umbrella, day planner, your lunch. Not to mention I live in a climate where it might be 40 degrees and raining when I leave for work and a sunny 65 by the afternoon… and I hate walking around having to carry a coat, hat, and sweater in my hands. It’s just practical.

There are all kinds of really nice messenger bags on the market; that what I prefer. The Timbuk2 stuff with a zillion pockets and compartments is really nice (if pricey) and also cool for traveling.

Backpacks work, but they make me feel a little like I should either be camping or going to school. Also, DON’T BE THAT GUY who goes on a crowded train or bus with an over-stuffed backback slung over both shoulders and obliviously smacks around everybody behind him. TAKE IT OFF AND HOLD IT BY THE HANDLE. Everyone hates THAT GUY.

Also, don't be the guy who requires a seat for himself and a seat for his backpack. Hold that crap on your lap, dude.

Interestingly, you direct that towards men. Why? The whole theme of this thread -- as far as I can tell -- is how people who think of men as different from women are "backwards." If so, then you really should have written "don't be the person who requires a seat for themselves and their bag or purse. Hold that crap on your lap, man or woman."

It just proves that, when you get down to it, we all do realize that there are differences between men and women -- some of us just admit it.
