In the 90's, the world of man was rocked by the introduction of the "man bag" or the "man purse". The first time I saw it was on NBC's must-see-TV show Friends. Joey, "the ladies man" chose to don the bag and then faced ridicule from the rest of the group. Some might call Joey a pioneer. Although, his pioneering went too far with the unwatchable spin-off, Joey, after the cancellation of Friends.
Several guys I know, who have made the man bag move, took the Timbuk2 route. I like them but hesitate dropping $75-$125 on one. Plus in the pioneering spirit of Joey I'd like to blaze my own trail in some regards.
Then I saw the man bag I had to have on an episode of 24. If Jack Bauer, can shoot the bad guys, rescue the president, and save the world while wearing THIS man bag...it is good enough for me! And for only $20 it was a no brainer.
