This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone

Manbags are magnets for muggers, warn insurance companies

Mirror News--Trendy manbags, adored by celebrities such as shamed TV presenter Jonathan Ross and soccer stars David Beckham and Cristiano Ronaldo, are a new target for muggers, insurance experts have warned.

For “metrosexuals” fed up with unsightly, bulging pockets stuffed with change are using them to carry wallets, keys and expensive gadgets such as iPods, BlackBerrys and mobile phones.

And Post Office Home Insurance believes fashionable men are just as likely to be robbed for their designer clutch and shoulder bags as women.

A spokesman said: “It’s important that men consider this a serious risk and that they take steps to protect their possessions.”

Wow! Guys that have purses are targets for violent crimes. Never would have expected that. Now in the article they call the purses manbags. Now to me I think manbags = balls, so I will never ever, ever, refer to man purse as a manbags. I like to refer man purses as a fanny pack. Nobody will never ever see me wearing a fanny pack. If I ever had a fanny pack then I should deserve to get rob, and punched in the nose.
