    The iPad and Man Bags, Man Purses, etc.

    Our non Y chromosome friends have a bag for their pad(s), but the men don’t. I wonder if the iPad will precipitate a shift in our society and make it acceptable for men to carry purses? I know it sounds flippant at first, but I think there is could happen.

    Men will use what we use now - messenger bags and backpacks.

    A bag to carry it? Yes
    I do that with my MBP now

    A man-purse?
    I don't think so

    Or shoulder bags, such thing as a man purse will not prevail.

    Exactly
    I think we will know more about things like that after we have held it, used it and carried for a while

    But I don't think a man-purse is in my future regardless

    You know what? I am a female of the species but I really prefer carrying bags such as my beloved Jack Spade messenger bag that I picked up at the men's department at Bloomies a few years ago to toting fussy, gimmicky, overdone feminine purses.

    If the advent of the iPad spawns more "man purses," I'm all for that and undoubtedly will snap up a few!

    I will carry mine around in a bullet proof briefcase like a real man.

    I have a "satchel" that I use for college. It fit my HP Mini perfectly, and I think the iPad should fill that gap quite nicely.

    I've managed to ward off people calling it a man purse by wrapping a Indiana Jones-esque whip above it, that way it seems I'm carrying it out of necessity, and baddassery. Which I very well may be.

    Baddassery, huh?
    You don't actually SAY baddassery do you?
    Cause I think it might take away from the aura you are creating

    Shoulder bags or messenger bags are effectively man purses, except no one calls them that to avoid freaking out men afraid of looking feminine by carrying a purse. :)

    I already use a man purse, aka a computer carrying bag. I don't carry my MBP in it much, but it's too damn useful and I'm addicted to it like I was my backpack in college. So I think the man purse revolution started as notebooks got more affordable and popular. The iPad will probably just make it bigger.

    You man bag haters need to embrace your inner purse......oh boy that just sounds wrong now i've typed it!

    I've been toting a man bag (as we call them here in the UK) around for years and think nothing of it. I have a selection as it happens although my main one is a rather lovely Finnish gas mask bag (surely that scores some man points right there).
