Remember these? I was issued one as a cadet...you can actually purchase one here.
Then I was stationed in Korea, and everyone had one of these -
or one of these -
Both still available new here (although not at Osan prices).
Now I carry something like this - PLEASE do not call it a purse, gentlemen! Plus a gym bag that is not black therefore not technically legal, per the AFI quoted here.
Due to many, mnay years of deployments, I see quite a few gals carrying these, which would reduce my tote, gym bag, and sometimes lap top to 1 bag....but since HQ is in blues 4 days a week, it's not really blues appropriate. I have this bag BTW, and for deployments (and sometimes Cub Scout camp outs) it is AWESOME.
So what do you carry?
