    About the only time I carry one is at gunshows, and then I stick with the old Army map case my Platoon Sergeant gave me when I reported to B/2-327 INF as the 2d Platoon Leader 34 years ago in 1985. We called this piece of equipment the "fag bag" back then. Couldn't get away with that now.

    That was my "book bag" when I was in grade school. But it was an earlier WWII model or at least Korea. Wish I would have saved the plexiglass (or plastic?) map storage part. Quite honestly, I wouldn't have been caught dead carrying a man bag 30 years ago.

    @leghog said "We called this piece of equipment the "fag bag" back then. Couldn't get away with that now." But people still "think it".

    Several months have passed and I am totally pleased with the Duluth bag choice. It gets used, but not more than once a week generally unless I am going out of town. It gets carried when I carry my 8" tablet computer. I carried it to the Social Security office a while back when I knew I might be waiting for hours potentially.

    I stick to Saddleback leather for a medium or large urban bag or to Galco for a man's bag :)

    I use a Mountainsmith lumbar pack w/ the additional shoulder strap. Mostly to carry my camera & lenses, but also as a hiking bag. If I'm just knocking around I use the shoulder strap and tuck the belt straps behind the padding on the back. If I'm going for a hike I use both. (Picture snagged from the web)
