    Call it what you want I have what I need when i need it and I am OK with that.
    I have been a Nurse for better than 10 years and my murse has served me well over the years.
    Most women I know are curious as to the content and like the idea.
    Yes i get poked at for it but thats OK.
    Metro.... Murse throw it al out.
    We are ............................................ :cool:

    mascara and lipstick... I combed through my wife's purse to compare contents ;D I didn't realize she actually carries the knife and light I gave her, nice surprise. She does carry some photos also, but mascara and lipstick....

    I think the" carry all bags" are "more", accepted amongst the youngins, ages forty and below.
    The older population tend to look at you twice if you are a man and you are carrying a bag, especially where I live in the somewhat rural North East.
    If you live in an urban environment where people need to use mass transit it is more acceptable and commonplace even for the older crowd.
    I carry a diaperbag on a daily basis so I was pretty much forced to give up on the notion that I have any type coolness left in me.
    As far as the ancient peoples carrying bags for their weaponry they also use to wear dresses and more recently tights, I dont see those fashions coming back around anytime soon.. or at least I hope not.
    Either way I can fight my true feelings of wanting to carry a man pocketbook, I need one in digital camo :censored: it hear me roar!

    No one has called my bag a man purse. I happen to love my MURSE though, it carries the things I need on the daily.

    A container by any other name would hold as sweet a collection of tools, toys, and life savers.  If I had to choose a term, I'd call it a purse over a satchel, even though I like the idea of wallet-carrying being the defining characteristic of a purse.  Euphemisms are bullcrap, as they say. 

    Btw I carry chapstick, which could count as low-gloss lip gloss.  No mascara, though I could dab some povidone iodine around my face for color.  That or my Sharpie.  No tampons or pads though.  I should work on that.

    EDIT: Whoops, mascara's the one for eyelashes. What a n00b.

    My favorite game with my friends and family is that they get to make fun of me for my murse up until they need to use something out of it.... then I get to make fun of them. It's a great system, really... equal opportunity mocking. ;-)

    call it a purse, murse, satchel, man bag, what ever you want to but i will still carry mine. whos gonna tell a 6'3" 300lbs tattooed head to toe man that he is less of a man because he has a shoulder bag with useful, maybe even life saving, things in it. dont care what others think, never have never will! like the tattoo across my chest says DILLIGAF ?!?! incase your not sure (Does It Look Like I Give A F@#&)

    I do not have a bag yet . . . MAXPEDITION is in my sights . . .

    In my case, the first day I walk into the office with a "PURSE" most people will be looking for exits or scurrying under their desk . . .

    Just saying . . . . :)
