Pants and sneakers check out. Missing the Members Only jacket, however.

Looks nimble.
You can't see if very well in the morning backlight, but there's a rooftop tent on there. Probably to save space.

This is the kind of guy who still brags about how many megapixels his camera is.

Then look at the prices....they are ridiculous compared to the other typical options out there. This line of products is for hipster new dads who are embarrassed to be associated with something uncool like babies. Slap some molle webbing on it, offer it in coyote brown and camo, label everything Tactical, and charge a fortune. To be honest, I wish I'd thought of it first.

With my kids I just embrace the role of fatherhood and I use whatever products my wife buys. This morning I dropped my son off at daycare and I had no problem carrying a light blue flowered diaper bag over my shoulder like I'm heading to the mall to go shoe shopping.

And its not because they are losers who couldn't hold a job, its that they made a decision for her to work because she could earn a metric ton of money (doctor, lawyer, executive, or whatever) and they wanted a parent at home full time to raise the kids. More stay at home dads, less gender specific products. Its all good.

My wife calls me Mr. Mom. I drop off and pick up our son at daycare probably 28 out of 30 days per month. She works downtown in a high-rise and is out the door relatively early and home usually around 6:00 PM. She's the business suit wearing high-power exec and I work from my home office in my underwear.

Unhappy

How hard is it to reload shells? A month or two ago I took my Winchester '97 trench gun out to the desert on a camping trip. I'll take that over any of these bullshit 12 gauges any day.

It's amazing what you can do with an X-acto knife and a good pair of clippers. I felt like it took too long to drive into town and sit in the doctors office. And with my lame insurance it cost me like $100. So I decided to start doing them myself. Only takes about fifteen minutes.
