    I need some ideas. I have way too many bags and am always looking for the perfect bag. Looking for something smaller than my Maxpedition Wolfspur :)censored: zippers) and something bigger than a girl's hand clutch. Looking to carry the usual phone, wallet, knife, light, keys, etc., and free up the pockets without looking like a fanny pack dork. Ideas?

    Idk... Pockets seem like a good way to go for that small amount of items. However, perhaps a tablet satchel might do the trick..?

    I use a Tom Bihn Side Effect for that, with a wrist strap.

    I would suggest the Tom Bihn Side Kick. Slightly bigger, you could fit an iPad mini easily.

    How about a fishermen's type of vest instead? For those items mentioned, a bag is a bit overkill and you have to remember to keep grabbing it/keep it with you, that's got to be a pain?
    Cargo pants, ones with many/larger pockets, that's another option?

    If you don't mind the tactical look the 5.11 Rush 12 is a very nice bag. Plus the molle allows for increased capacity should the need arrise. That is my wife's car bag and it works nicely and doubles as her get home bag. I guess it depends on the size you're looking for.

    Wanna carry more stuff without looking like a failed dorky boyscout with one too many toys? Buy your wife a new purse! Make sure it's a big one!

    Have you tried looking at a Sarma Custom Torba Mini or Midi?
