Default I carry a Man-Purse.

Or a back pack to be specific, all day every day but they keep ripping and tearing and wearing out exceptionally fast, I guess you could call it a bug out bag but it's one that's always with me, to and fro, at work, even when I run an errand so I need something stronger, better and tougher but I'd like it to not be camo or obvious hunting/tacticool looking because I'd get stopped everyday. maybe plain grey or earthy or black would be a doable.

Any suggestions?

By the way, my daughters call it my "Man-Purse" so that's where that came from but hey man! it's not fair women get to carry all that stuff! my pockets are full of too much already! I need a purse...err I mean a bag too!

Would a computer bag work? They have compartments and look innocuous as Hell.

I saw a funny thing at the range the other day. One of the shooters had a diaper bag with him. We were all wondering why someone would bring a baby to the range. He opened it up and started pulling out guns and magazines and cleaning supplies. It might look a odd. But nobody would ever guess you were packing. Plenty of men are dads. There are probably more manly looking ones out there. Just an option you may not have thought about. You would definately have the element of suprise. God only knows what your kids would say then! LOL

Think about it though, would you think I had three days worth of meds, food, water, first aid, 9mm with 100 rounds, multi-tool, hunting knife, socks, important papers and various other things in there?

I see those all the time around here.

I also knew a guy who was so insecure about himself that the "diaper bag" was a small leather carry-on suitcase. It was probably a designer label too (not that I would recognize one!). He didn't want to be seen carrying a diaper bag LOL! He is such a douche. A diaper bag would be freaking awesome! Heck, use a baby stroller so you can haul more artillery!
