Either use a man purse, carry less crap, or get a girlfriend.I'll add one more alternative which is pretty much what I do. Wear a rumpled, Columbo-style raincoat with lots of pockets no matter how hot it is. You'll be uncomfortable (and look bad) but at least you're not wearing a fanny pack. My friend Steve carries around a 35mm camera case—filled with everything but a camera. It's a faux man-purse. That's tricky.
