HAVE you ever wondered why women obsess over designer bags?
These outrageously expensive pieces are not just pangporma, but are considered investment pieces they should be able to use for several years, and maybe even pass down to their future kids.
Still, don’t expect them to start buying us bags any time soon though—if you want any of these high-end bag beauties, best start saving!
If given a choice, however, most of us wouldn't bother with a bag—we'd just cram all our things in our pockets. As for the stuff that won't fit in our pockets, well, that's what our loving girlfriends (and their spacious bags) are for, right?
But we can only take advantage of the generosity of womenfolk up to a certain point, and we're sadly on our own when we have to lug around our bulky work laptops or sweaty gym clothes.
Here are the best options, both pricey and affordable, for dudes who don't have a lady (or a decent bag) to help them in life:
Pacsafe Vibe 40L bag in Grey Camo, P8,290
If you could pack one bag for the apocalypse (or simply Manila's mean streets) Pacsafe's theft-proof features will make you feel safe and sound.
The Tannery Manila Chico Genuine Leather Duffle Bag, P6,200

The North Face Wise Guy Backpack, P2,990
CabinZero Classic 44L Backpack in Navy, P3,350
