    Sweet.

    joecool, you don't have to be a woman to get in on this; Haven't you ever heard of a man-purse/man-bag? :D

    Thread title of the week. :D

    Pretty nifty although the picture shows one lone bunch of keys, not the typical clutter that's in my bag...

    There is of course another option – do what my girlfriend does and don't bother with a handbag at all.

    Now, guess which mug has to carry all her stuff in his pockets? :p

    I do that sometimes... what other use is a bf for? :p But as for that purse, I for one would not mind it (unless it's really pricey-- then I'd go back to my cheapie $5 mini-Mag lite keychain flashlight) and assuming it's a nice looking bag. Interesting idea though.

    I'm not sure I want to know what's in my wife's purse.

    I wonder what she'd find in there that she didn't know about either?

    My girlfriend has been known to read these forums, so if you do I'd best sit that one out... :p

    Well judging from the little bit you've said about her just in this thread, I bet she and I would get along so well. :p

    Thats hilarious, my bother had bag he deemed his "Men's Carryall" which was a handbag / organizer he carried around for almost a year. He's a "comedian" so he loved the attention, but I guess the jokes wore on him and he had to eventually retire it.

    I know - not much good when the amount of junk in my bag could obscure the sun let alone a solar panel light.... :p

    Howies have been making bags with a light coloured lining for a while for the same reason, so this is a good step up from that. And lads, no doubt this would extend to messenger bags and rucksacks. I for one would welcome this, as the amount of stuff I can fit in a rucksack tends to start drawing other objects towards it due to its gravitational pull....






    And, if all else failed, you could turn it inside out and use it as a taxi hailing hat!

    Just "several"? :p

    I think this bag is a cool idea, but the energy requirements for the lit interior have to be REALLY low in order for it to be rechargeable from a solar panel that's really not going to spending a great deal of time in the sun. Also, most women's purses that I've ever seen the inside of are SO crowded with stuff that it would take an anti-aircraft spotlight from WW II to let you see what was in there.

    It would make more sense if the lite panels were on the sides instead of the bottom. They are rechargeable by sunlight or by way of a plug in those holes in walls.

    Admitting you like women's handbags is the first step.

    They do have doctors to help you with the transition, though Doctor Q would probably be limited to changing your user name to janefrigid85 ;)

    Hmmm. The solar wallet probably wouldn't work quite as well, huh?

    well i have many but there are probably about 7 or so that i use on a regular basis (do i sound like a real girly girl?!!)

    not mine... i move my stuff between bags very often and i prefer mini (even nano) sized bags!

    some sort of glowing inner pouch that could be moved from bag to bag would be more useful than a single dedicated handbag.

    Why not clip one of those LED penlights (you know, that fit onto a key ring) to your purse?

    Or, the LED ring - lights up anything you point at. Which finger you wear it on is up to you.

    Yes, you do. How many pairs of shoes do you own? ;)

    Perhaps you're the exception to the rule, then.

    I agree on this. It would be better if they sold the solar panel/light/liner/zip assembly as one piece, and then sold exterior coverings/straps separately so that you could just move the liner and panel into a new "shell" when you wanted to accesorize more effectively.

    Well the French have what they call a "baise-en-ville", ie shag in the city. Wonder what they use those handbags for? :eek: :D
    Dirty French buggers :p :p :p
