Vital Necessity: Messenger Bag

I hardly leave the house without my messenger bag. For over ten years, this has always been a black Timbuk2. But with winter approaching and thus cycling occurring again most in the dark, I decided to try a more reflective model this morning:

As you can see on the arrows, it's a British model, however, no car tried to overtake me on my right (so far).

My messenger bag usually contains at least:
  • 2 mobbies (private & work)
  • grab & shoot (Lumix DMC-LX3)
  • towel
  • speedos
  • goggles
  • pool subscription
  • agenda
  • some fruits
  • some pens
  • some memory sticks
  • iPod
  • some hotel reward cards
  • some aspirin.
If I'm not about to cycle there is also something to read.

This bag shows the drivers just where to stay!. Hope it holds at least as much as its predecessor and is water tight. No flashing lights when it gets dark?

@Mickle... flashing lights are prohibited in Switzerland. Though I've got steady ones. See & be seen is the key to survival.

Relieved you have the steady lights. Agree to the survival keys. And relieved that you are in Zurich - or are you just posting "Zurich" things to keep us all relieved?

A pity you can't take your husband over to the shipyard in Spain for Tono to confuse them all with fluent Spanish (including all the technical terms). A box of wine with every missile delivery?

I know... go away Michelle... even Zebbycat has hidden under his quilt.....

much care and love xxxxx

"See & be seen is the key to survival." Wieder eine Lebensweisheit gelernt, es ist doch immer lohnend hier. :-)

@Martin... Autofahrer sind nun mal fast blind in ihren sperrigen und trägen Kisten.

Stimmt, bin selber Radfahrer, aber schlimmer sind die, die sich auf mehr als 2 Beinen fortbewegen, also Kinder, Hunde und Senioren. Ist zwar ein böser Spruch, stimmt aber, gerade gestern hatte ein etwa Dreijähriger spontan beschlossen, in mein Rad zu laufen, zum Glück funktionierten meine Reflexe.

@Mickle... Right now I'm in Switzerland, but I'm about to embark to India.
