Yea or Nay?

This is a poll where multiple choice does not make sense.

Of course it depends on the usage. I have found my messenger bag to be very useful when hauling lots of stuff, but I see no use in every day purposes unless you are a messenger.

I know. I was being silly. I got my husband one of these at his request.

Oh shoot. I meant to put "for men." A messenger bag for men - yea or nay.

They're better for men or maybe flat women because when you wear them as intended they're uncomfortable on bigger chests.

I use a Coachella messenger bag for school, but I prefer the term mail-carrier.

This is a toughie, because most men I don't think can pull it off. But in the slight chance that they do, it looks pretty cool.

Jim can easily.

I walk to work and take the train. A backpack looks ridiculous when dressed in work clothes. Carry a briefcase makes me feel like a dad and is not good for my posture. A messenger bag has none of these problems. How else would a carry files, computer, book, etc to work?

definitely depends on the bag.

Are we talking about simple ones that just have a strap that you wear on the side, or are we talking about those ones that have the weird framed shoulder strap to make them sit on your lower back?

When girls where them the strap rests between their breasts making the shape of the breasts appear more round and voluptuous, therefore, I approve. I have no opinion for guys though.

still makes percentages irrelevant thus they should be disregarded.

Hannahrain
12-17-2007, 08:05 PM
No it doesn't. It doesn't give you the percentage of yes votes vs. percentage of no votes. It tells you what percentage of voters voted yes and what percentage voted no. Still relevant.

I bring one to Coachella every year and all the homophobic men use me to carry all their shit for them. Plus, not only do I think they are fine for men, but i think I look mother fucking cool in too. So, fuck off all you dickweeds who voted no (and only no).

Edit: I also like how zzzz can't even successfully create a yes or no poll.

I would have voted no a couple years ago. Then I ordered this Rick Steves travel backpack and it can be used as a messenger bag and it works so much better that way while touring or doing Coachella or ACL or something. So now I vote yes. and now I want a nice leather one. With fringe.

I have a messenger bag but I just wear it over my shoulder. I can't stand wearing it like I ought to.

Also, for the record, I'm on Team Fannypack for festivals. Hands free, small, convenient.

The fanny pack might get you some attention from people who want drugs. That happened quite a bit to my man in '06.

I'll just give them a weird look and they'll wander away.

Actually numerous people have asked me for stuff before, and not just at festivals or places where you'd expect it. I was walking back to my car after a thrifting excursion and a man pulled up and asked me to sell him some weed. He absolutely didn't believe that I don't smoke.

never used one before ... i always have my back pack for fests and it works better i think because it holds more, and you can adjust it more then a bag ...it is also nice if it is full of extra clothes and such, to use as a back rest if you are sitting on the grass .... on the other hand, i have worn my tunic to a number of shows (pics posted before) so i am not dogging men who do have them .. canx**

What does your tunic have to do with dogging guys with messenger bags? Um, wait. Nevermind.
