    ABC television's Nightline show is scheduled to discuss the phenomenon of American men carrying "man purses" tonight (Tues, July 25). The show airs at about 10:30 PM Central time.

    Will be interesting if they look at it from an EDC standpoint or as some manifestation of the "metrosexual" lifestyle....

    I too have a feeling we won't be seeing a lot of Maxpedition, Spec-ops, Blackhawk, etc. stuff. However, since it is way past my bedtime, I will depend on you folks to provide a full report. ;D

    Just saw the intro for Nightline and they are definately going the whole "metro" angle.

    It really wasn't worth watching. I would not be caught dead with any of those bags shown.

    Yup, I have a feeling it is going to be on how the "modern" man carries all of his essential gadgets like PDAs and IPODs in their fancy leather and canvas GAP messenger bags.

    I had a heavy leather briefcase handmade from Renniasance (sp) Art. It holds my school books and toys, yet is heavy to carry. Beautifully made to my specs.
    I have trouble with the leather odor at times. I hope it is my last bag. I've spent too much over the years. :lolhammer:

    They started right out talking about men's FASHION. Not a very worth while segment. *imho*
    But for those who are still interested, it can be viewed online at the Nightline website as of this morning.
    Here is a dirct link to the video:

    It was a short segment. Missed about half changing for bed before I fired up the bedroom TV. Oh well, from the little I did see I didn't miss a heck of a lot.

    But they mentioned Chewbacca too!

    Wish they had asked me what was in my bag...pistol, ammo, knife, tools, ham radio, survival equipment...you know, same old stuff.
