This post is mostly aimed at men, but ladies as always feel free to respond. This is also inspired by the meme that gets you to photograph the contents of your daily bag.
So men – how do you carry your stuff and what do you take? And please, no writing “manbag” or “murse” (see the podcast for an explanation why). As I stated in an EIU post, I recently bought a Filson small field bag and am a little in love. Leather and waxed canvas, plenty of pockets, and brass fixtures. I’m working on a bit of a video guide to the bag I’m so enamoured with it.
Inside I carry: Canon SLR, wallet, moleskine and and least three pens, an iPod, keys.
And you?

my bf has two headporter bags and he gets grief for carrying either around – there’s usually his moleskin, wallet, keys, pens, ds lite and some mints in the bag. but he gets more flack for the dotted one – apparently the more “girly” of the two.
i don’t understand what the big deal is. a bag’s pretty handy if you’re going to be lugging around so much stuff. better that he has his own bag than getting me to carry everything anyway. guys sure have it tough…

Most guys I know will walk around all day with a back pack or one of those weird Nike mini bags just so they don’t get called a girl for using an actual bag. It’s pretty funny.

I hate carrying things around so I tend to keep only what fits in my pockets – iPhone, keys, wallet.
When I travel or know I’ll be out around the city for the entire day I will sometimes carry a small bag ( Like this ). Inside I’ll carry a digital camera, Nintendo DS, Water Bottle and perhaps a Clif Bar if I get hungry.
I’ve been looking at getting a new bag because I now have to carry my laptop to and from home everyday for work purposes. I’m not really a fan of the techy laptop bags but most bags I’ve seen and liked are well out of the price range I’m willing to spend for such a thing.

I realize this may sound like an advertisement for feminine products.
Heavy days: Raf Simons x Eastpak
Lighter days: Surface 2 Air Paris cargo bag
Lightest days: Just carry it in my hands and/or pockets.

Every time I see this topic I read
“How do you carry your thighs?”
.
and I think…

On my hips?

My friend Adam swears fanny packs are cool for boys now, but he’s wrong.

If I were a dude, I’d check out postings on NotCot, CoolHunting, and Switched On Set. I saw an amazing Pantone messenger bag there:

Also, the Reload version of Colette’s geometric Ryuta Nakajima bag is delightful (and more affordable than the original).

My brother has jackets and coats with like a milion pockets so he can really put a lot of stuff without carrying a bag and when its hot enough outside well there’s still the jeans pockets. And as for your camera, I have photographer friends guy and girls who just wear it around their neck.
