The Bag Dump Cometh!

I finally had the time to lay out all of the things I keep in the bag I carry everyday and snap a pic.

There's an endless supply of productivity and entertainment in my bag...gadgetry for days!

Historically, all of these items were kept in a backpack, but I recently upgraded that part of my EDC to a nicer, more fashionable bag. Luckily, everything fits!

Speaking of this bag, it took an amazing amount of willpower to puncture its leather with that "S" pin. My wife almost threw up. I knew if I could do it, it would be SUPER sexy. I was right. For those of you who didn't see my post about the S in the forums, I found it at a local antique shop. It would have belonged to a soldier from the American Civil War, which dates it back over 150 years. It was unearthed in the town where I live, which makes it all the more special. It has three slightly curved prongs on the backside. I poked them through the leather and used a small hammer to gently bend them over in opposite directions. It's never coming off. The bag will be an heirloom item for the next Szaroleta in line.

Oh, and I also included the world's best gum...I buy it in bulk. :-)

Great submission as always Chris - I covet that bag.

As do I, glen! I had looked at leather bags for several months and finally settled on this one. It was then a few more months before I got it, and only then, because my wife got it for me as an early birthday present. Work keeps me on the road often - no man should spend any time at an airport without a decent bag!

I do believe puncturing the bag would have made me sick too! However, it is a great addition to it! Nice!

It really was frightening, but it had to be done. I measured and measured and measured, but it still ended up being a hair more to the left than I wanted. It's only a millimeter or two, but it stills burns my eyes every time I look at it. I've gotten over the initial shock. ;-)
