    Wait, Does My Backpack Qualify???

    I don't like to mess with a purse...but I do haul a backpack around pretty much everywhere. My main problem with purses is that they take up a hand.  I don't like a strap on only one shoulder, and even when I carry a purse that way, they don't seem to stay.  And anyway, I just...
