Sometimes the necessities of life would dictate otherwise than normal in a lot of things-- with all the things you carry around, I don't blame you for wanting to be prepared and not have to carry everything around in your hands (at least I would so surmise from reading this; I may be incorrect).People often comment that I'm not properly dressed for summer weather. But I just love the feel of my winter outfits on my body, and those lightweight summer jackets usually don't have enough pockets (or any!) and I need to have everything on me: passport, wallet, keys, phone, cigarettes, lighter, chewing gum, after shave (in one of those tiny sampler thingies, not the full bottle), just-in-case-painkillers, a few additional keys of this & that and - omg, almost forgot - lip balm.
So yeah, basically, a handbag-on-legs.
If I were a woman I could simply carry a handbag, but as a man my options are very limited.
