I've seem dudes who carry a mini tactical backpack with them every where that does a good job of being a "butch" purse. Get a camelback style and never go thirsty either.

I have a messenger bag I take most places when I travel (not like if I head to Wal-Mart or downtown, but for most overlights or anything of distance.)

-Thin lil ASUS laptop, mouse, power adapter

-Grid paper

-Tape Measure

-rechargeable flashlight


-USB drive

-Safety Glasses

-Lock for LOTO


-Laser distance measure dealy

-Sometimes some other tools, or a light jacket, or a sandwich, or a hard hat, or a water bottle.

-Sharpie, paint pen, red pen, black pen, pencil

In theory, its what I need for when I see customers at work.  In practice, it gets used for all sorts of stuff.  If I didnt do so much air travel I would put a knife and a leatherman in there also.  I keep a leatherman in the glovebox of the car.

Check out dango wallets, I use mine pretty frequently. It has a multi tool integrated into the design. Works well. Get the parachord tether too to satisfy your parachord needs. Mine has a "tile" card in it so I can find it with my cellphone  

Mine is the m1 tactical, it's been awesome

I started small and went nuts. I ended up with two backpacks. One with everyday carry stuff (511 tactical, covert backpack ) and another (osprey aether 85) that i can walk away and survive (hopefully) indefinitely out of. The 511 covert has been awesome, I very frequently have something that I need that I would have had to go without or forage for. The osprey lives in whatever vehicle im in unless its an mr2 (cause no fit :-/)
