Will the iPad Start a Man Bag Revolution?

by on February 5th, 2010

Do you carry a “murse?” What’s a “murse” you ask? According to UrbanDictionary.com:

a man-purse. very fashion-forward right now, seen on many hipster guys. the line between a messenger bag and murse is very fluid – typically a murse is a bit smaller than a traditional messenger, and may have a slightly more stylized look to it. a murse can also be used to carry a laptop computer – one of the reasons it is so popular right now.

Yeah, one of those bags. When the iPad starts selling in Canada and pretty much the rest of the world in late March, people will need new ways to carry their iPads. The ladies out there will have no problems at all. As for the guys? Well, you could slap it into your backpack. But sometimes that’s too bulky. What about a man-purse? That just might be the solution!

Will the iPad Result in the Proliferation of the Man Bag?

Most people already use a messenger bag as a laptop bag. However, the iPad is a much smaller device and might not warrant such a large bag. But a nice and tidy man bag might just do the trick! It would be the perfect way for you to carry your iPad without the bulk. On top of that, you could also store your wallet, keys, and iPhone too. Ahh, I can see it now…an Apple-branded man bag needs to show up in the Apple Store–I’m telling you, it will sell like hotcakes.

One thing is for sure, the only person that can pull off the man bag successfully is none other than, Jack Bauer. He always has his man bag and inside is an endless array of guns, explosives, and anything else that can kill you in a nanosecond.

Jack Bauer once stepped into quicksand. The quicksand couldn’t escape and nearly drowned.

How will you be carrying your iPad? In your backpack? In your man bag? On your belt?

  • Yup – already have a bag – kinda like Jack Bauer's, but full of laptop and accessories, rather than weapons. Once I get an iPad, I'll probably carry it (the bag with an iPad) more regularly.

  • Good to know you're not packing heat like Jack, lol. Realistically speaking, carrying a bag nowadays is the way to go with the amount of electronics and accessories we all have.

    I see a great marketing/product opportunity for someone here!!! LOL

  • “well, you could slap it into your backpack”

    ..this was my original thinking, but I don;t know about a man-bag although Lil Wayne did make a catchy song proliferating the infamous 'duffle bag boy'

    Wow, how some folks are already phsychologically justifying a “man bag” for the “ipad” is amazing. That is wrong on so many levels.

  • The 'man-bag' is going to take over…it's unstoppable. The only time a 'man bag' is somewhat justifiable is when you are traveling and need to carry a tonne of stuff. Don't forget though, you can never go wrong with the tried, tested, and true Fanny Pack! 😉

    Actually, I don't think my iPad will leave the house. I have my iPad Nano (iPhone) to carry around with me, and if I need a computer on the go, I'll take my MacBook. We'll have to see how this thing ends up fitting into my life.

    Don't forget your pocket protector, calculater, and the tape for your glasses!! 😉
