HeFinds Guy Friday: Watch Out for Those Dangerous Man Bags

So you finally went against what you thought was your better judgement and broke down and bought yourself a "man bag." Well, watch out misters: that bag could be as bad for you as the two-ton-oversize handbags your girlfriend carries around with her like a ball and chain.

According to some recent research done in the UK, men have a propensity for carrying around fancy iPhones, iPods, cameras, $100 headphones, PSPs and laptops, not including cash. Make that a Gucci bag and the value of that "murse" (as Fashionista calls it) can be worth a pretty penny. To thieves, that bulging man bag translates to walking dollar signs, as one bag along could carry up to $500 worth of stuff or more.

The solution? First thing: check with your insurance provider to see how much they'll cover of personal possession theft away from home and decide if it's worth putting out extra cash to protect your valuables when you're on the go. The next thing: keep cash in your pants instead of in your bag. Pickpockets rarely try and lift cash buried deep in a front pocket, but if you lose your bag, that cash is history. Finally, buy bags that safeguard your stuff a bit better like these stylish murses. Our top pick is this Fossil Recon North/South Messenger Bag ($88 @ Macys.com).
