    Like others, I have carried a bag (mostly a shoulder bag like my beloved, dead Imago) for nearly all my adult life, which is a long time. It has been a “thing “ since the 60’s. I think men should...

    I use Bose QC20’s. I would prefer over-ear headphones, but they are too bulky for travel. The QC20’s take little space, sound ok, and work well. I recommend them if compact size is more important...

    Instead of a clothesline, I carry a hank (25’ ?) of parachute cord. I find it much more flexible to hang (it can go from the bathroom door to the window and back if necessary) than a short...

    One of the big outdoor companies used to make a travel version of backgammon, and my partner and I carried it for years. Not a game to play when moving, but great when we stopped for the night. When...

    I only have a couple of suggestions: confirmed once again by recent experience, I always take a light sweater (usually fleece) whenever I go to the ER (etc.), summer or winter. I find that in the US,...

    A real tragedy, but it could have been worse: no one died, all injuries were minor. Notre Dame will be re-built, thanks both to the fierce determination of France and the great generosity of donors...

    When I need a packable bag to carry in my A45, I take either a Daylight Briefcase or my (no longer made) Imago. Lately, I have also used a packable daypack from REI. I am tempted by the Luminary or...

    I have often used the A30 as a personal item on flights between the US and Europe. As some have already said, I wouldn’t want to put it under the seat in front of me, but never...

    Imago.
    The great thing about it as an edc bog is that it can carry so many different shapes and sizes. One day I carry a laptop, the next a big square food container.
