2. Smartphone
3. Headphones
4. Glasses
5. Mac, laptop or tablet
6. Aftershave
7. Digital camera
8. Chewing gum
9. Umbrella
10. Filofax

Anita Naik, consumer editor of, commented: "The research shows men are starting to embrace the manbag and recognise the practical benefits of carrying everything in one place, especially with expensive tech to carry around every day."

With all these valuable gadgets, the average man is now carrying around £880.27 of ‘essentials.’

The extortionate cost of essentials may be why two thirds of men opt for a bag for security over simply uising their pockets.
