How to carry a phone that's not in your pocket
Well, given that it won’t be that frequent, that’s not actually a bad idea. Does that work for texts too?
No, that’s why I end up with two phones. Though it could be argued I can getaway without text from the work phone, I then have to run a container for my work email and calendaring on my phone, which uses my data allowance alarmingly quickly… so I’ve gone back to two phones and just don’t carry the work one if I’ve no reason too.Posted 3 years agowillardMember
No no! You need one of these…Posted 3 years agowillardMember
I’d have to agree with Molly on this one. There are times when my wife is not able to find her mobile phone in her
big bag full of craphandbag, whereas, because mine is in my left front pocket (always left front), I can find mine in a jiffy, possibly quicker.
On the other hand, I do think that it should be possible to fit a couple of phones in a pocket Mol. Maybe just tailor the pockets on your trousers to fit two? You could sew in a replacement liner made from a rugby sock or something.Posted 3 years ago
I can physically fit two phones in there yes, but due to my muscular Hoy-esque thighs it’s not very comfortable.
I use my bra all the time for my phone when I’m out. You could do that Molly
Well that’s a very kind offer, and certainly quite exciting, but I doubt it’d work out conveniently for both of us.Posted 3 years agoprettygreenparrotSubscriber
I’ve seen some guys carry off man-bags. But not many.
Lots of US men seem to favour the ‘clip it on my belt’ approach. OK with an athletic figure. Less so with a ‘spread’ figure. If you’re Batman give it a go.
If it’s for on the bike, and around about then pop it in a backpack or Camelbak.
If it’s more for mooching then get a coat with pockets. Any old coat. Just put it in the pocket.
The SPI belts made me smile. I can’t imagine finding one of those any more useful than a pocket.
Those Heinnie Haynes Civilian Lab Covert Loader things. Really? Not sure I’d have the confidence to wear one of those outside a CosPlay event. Still, strangely appealing… And some of the other stuff on the site is neat.
Fabric Horse seems interesting. Etsy…again!
Or, just leave it in the drawer and claim you were working on something that needed absolute concentration and that’s why you ignored the ‘phone. Texts get lost in the ether all the time so forget them anyway. iMessages are different.Posted 3 years ago
Hah.. like I’m some kind of hipster… I can’t fit two phones in one pocket, no. If I put a phone in my back pocket it’ll get crushed if I sit down.

A small courier bag is ideal, I’ve got one, a little red and back Polaris bag I bought at the Bike Show years ago, and it’s ideal for when I’m not planning on carrying very much, when I’m out walking, for example. It can carry my folding saw, small on-the-go flask, camera, binoculars, ultralight waterproof or poncho, plus other small odds-n-sods, like pens, notepads, etc.
All the straps have reflective stripes woven in as well, so it’s handy in gloomy winter weather or after dark.
It’s about big enough to hold a laptop, or an iPad comfortably in a case.

Something like this musette bag, perhaps? Cycling orientated, but better quality:Posted 3 years ago
I use one of these to carry my stuff 😀
