I've never been as cautious with my other bags that are comparable in price, but with my new B-bag, I am so protective. Last night I was walking downtown (there's a ton of homeless people) and I found myself clutching my bag in one hand with my keys and mace in the other. Then today, at 8 a.m. this lady who works in my office building was telling me that this man walked in her office and she noticed he had his hand behind his back. She was all alone, but asked him, "What's behind your back"? He had her wallet in his hand and when she caught him he handed it back to her. How creepy is that?!?! Colleagues of mine always warn me not to leave my bag on my desk like I do. So finally, I decided to keep it in my drawer. Do you all feel that carrying a nice bag, like a B-bag, makes you more of a target? I'd be quick to mace someone if they tried grabbing my bag.
