    I carry a simple Kelty backpack. It's black and gray. It's definitely not military looking. And when I carry it over one shoulder, nobody gives me a second look. I carry it to work every day and anywhere I need to lug more than will fit in my pockets, including vacations. It has a large padded back compartment that a laptop or a notebook will fit in, a middle compartment that has a couple of pockets in it and a much smaller compartment. I carry my gun (when I can't carry my gun) in the middle and my Surefire, knife, extra magazines, extra lighter and extra smokes in the outside. I think I paid $40 for it and works great.

    Maxpedition makes good, durable "manly" gear that doesn't make you look like you're toting a purse. My brother totes the Fatboy that Euclidean mentioned. If that's too small, try the backpack Baby Condor or that photo/laptop/office bag. There's a poster of all their gear here.

    If that stuff looks too "tactical" and you'd rather go discreet, try the Victorinox line. Their Precision Gear line has some very nice pieces. I've ordered from ebags.com before, and they ship fast.

    I have three Victorinox pieces, the Edelweiss monopack, good for overnight travel, the small Zurich, just big enough for wallet, keys, camera, PDA and daily odds n' ends, and the Werks traveler's tote that's built like a tank.

    You mean 'handlebars,' don't you"

    (Don't look in my closet.)
    Are you kidding! You scare the conchos off of me! There's either a .577 calibre electric gattling gun in your closet or Jimmy Hoffa reading a copy of SWAT. Either way, I don't want to know.

    I'm afraid to know whether you have more guns, blades, or bags!
