Guys, what is in your DAILY use bag (man purse or satchel or whatever you call it) I carry a Maxpedition Fatboy or sometimes a Jumbo Versipak everyday to and from work loaded with my stuff. I'm just curious what you carry in yours, and I'm always open to adding new items. Go ahead...dump it out. It is probably time to go through it again and purge.

Mine contains:
Prescription sunglasses and computer glasses.
Rayovac 3W LED AA flashlight
glass cleaner spray
Gerber knife
Digital camera
Cell phone
Ipod touch
Rite in the rain all weather paper pad
REI daypack first aid kit
Yaesu VX-3 mini dual band tranceiver
REI Travel toothbrush (with toothpaste in handle)
Sometimes a BPA free Nalgene water bottle (filled)
USB mem card reader
USB mem stick
$100 emergency cash
Ear buds
Pens, markers

My every day possibilities bag is a fanny pack with a knife, compass, rope, watch, lighter, smokes, and I usually carry a litre of water.

Sometimes I'll carry a map and gps, but usually that's it. I'm not in an area where there's any real fear of becoming lost or getting too far from civilization.

When I am I'll add a basic first aid kit and that's about it. If I'm out for more than aday I'll carry more too.

I used to carry a Leather-man Multi tool in a pouch, a Mini Mag flashlight, my cell, pager, key clip all on my belt, during working hours.

Need suspenders to hold up my pants, so I cut down and added the small multi tool, and Mini bic in an old SAK pouch.
Does all the jobs the big stuff did, just not as long.
