Women who carry a gear bag will often just put a wallet, cell phone, and other small essentials in the gear bag. This works great while getting to work or school, but it may be a bit cumbersome when going to lunch or running errands. The ID Pouch from Eagle Creek might be a good “going to lunch” bag. It’s 7 X 5 X 0.8 inches, weighs 5 oz, and is made of ripstop nylon, so it’s small enough to fit in your gear bag. It has a variety of zipper pockets and slots, so you can put your phone, keys, and a small wallet in there, or you can use it as a wallet and still have room for a phone. Use the included strap to wear it on your shoulder or crossbody. Don’t think this bag is just for women; men can wear it on their belts, too. It’s $25, and it’s available in black, chocolate, or palm green from eBags.
