The further adventures of Jack Bauer, backpack designer

Friday, June 30th, 2006

Over at Digg, user detour99 points to a page of Oakley computer cases and labels it “If Jack Bauer made laptop bags . . .” He adds:
These rock-hard laptop bags from Oakley would appear more at home dropped into a war-zone rather than carried on the bus. They do however score a high amount of [...]

Answers to your questions about Jack Bauer’s man purse

Friday, June 2nd, 2006

Speaking of 24, over at Yahoo! Answers a reader named Miss D writes in with a query:
If Jack Bauer is so badass, why does he carry a murse?

Twenty would-be wise guys try to explain. Including Dave, who lays it out:
That’s where he carries all his whoopass. Sometimes he has so much of it, it spills [...]

Where to buy Jack Bauer’s 24-hour messenger bag

Thursday, June 1st, 2006

Looking for the canvas messenger bag carried by Jack Bauer, Kiefer Sutherland’s character on TV’s longest-running week-long show, 24?
According to our visitor logs, so are a lot of other people. We don’t get it. What, exactly, is the virtue of carrying a man purse identical to that of a fictional, independent, go-it-alone secret agent? So [...]

What to call your man purse so it doesn’t seem out of the ordinary

Wednesday, May 17th, 2006

Our last post on Google Trends and its implications for man-bag carriers everywhere left out a few terms that people might use to refer to a man’s handbag. So today we’ll set out to see if we can find a better answer to a simple question:
If you want to make it sound as innocuous and [...]

Out Your Backdoor: man-bag-in-purse action, plus a Swedish three-way

Tuesday, May 9th, 2006

A reader writes . . .
Like many, I got tired of having so much banging around in various pockets. Tired of stuff falling out when I leaned over. Tired of not having what I needed, of not having things to help me fritter away some time when I got stuck somewhere.
Now, I always have a [...]

Specialized bags for record holders

Thursday, April 27th, 2006

We spend most of our energy at this site exploring bags and satchels that serve a broad cross section of the male population. But men hesitant to jump on the man-purse bandwagon should be aware of the myriad specialty man bags that have provided for the extremely particular needs of male workers conducting important, technical, [...]

Gadget-worn pockets: The law-enforcement solution

Thursday, April 20th, 2006

Writing in the current issue of Make magazine, technology columnist Andy Ihnatko enumerates the hassles of storing gear in your pants:
Every night, you have to empty all of your pockets. Every morning, you have to fill ’em up again. And portable pockets (in the form of belt pouches) are a mere Band-Aid solution. Unless your [...]

Great moments in man-purse journalism: Episode 1

Monday, April 17th, 2006

Regular readers of the Satchel Pages are probably aware that we do not shy from media criticism, especially when the work of journalism in question exhibits shoddy reporting or lazy generalizations. But if we’re going to point out flaws when they are apparent, we should also dish out kudos when they are deserved, especially in [...]

Hide a man purse under your arm or over your ankle

Wednesday, April 5th, 2006

Today, more man purses that can keep their mugs shut — this time culled from the rough-and-tumble world of tactical-response gear.

First up: the Covert Radio Holster from Arktis North America. Yes, it’s built for a two-way radio, but it doesn’t take a modder to realize that one of these could make a great holder for [...]

Bags full of weapons

Thursday, March 30th, 2006

Men got along fine for quite some time without carrying purses. Why the need now?
The obvious, short answer is gizmos. The number of iPods, cell phones, and handheld computers has increased exponentially, whereas the number of pockets has stayed pretty much the same (cargo pants, of course, being the valiant exception).
