Help me find the perfect everyday crossbody bag?

I'm looking for a smallish, durable crossbody bag with lots of pockets, a wide strap, and a not-overtly feminine appearance that nonetheless isn't an army surplus store special, and won't set me back more than, say, $60. Does such a thing exist? [more inside]

Like a toolbelt only more minimal?

Looking for a specific pair of Roos

The most comfortable shoes I own (Kangaroos Tai Chi M) are starting to show their age. When I bought a replacement pair online a couple of years ago, I was disappointed that they use a different material/style which is more rigid and far less comfortable. Help me find the older style of Roos! [more inside]

I gotta get serious about my sports shorts.

Can you recommend women's exercise shorts with pockets and no built-in underwear (what?!) and no tight elastic waist? My gym just busted me for wearing non-exercise shorts, since apparently there's a no-back-pocket-button rule. [more inside]

Pockets in Scrubs

I just started volunteering at a hospital and got my first ever set of scrubs. The pants have two pockets on the butt, as one would expect, but one of them is inside the pants, and one of them is outside. I find this arrangement totally fascinating and intriguing. Is there some reason for a pocket inside the backside of scrub pants, or did I just get a weird pair?

How do I keep my keys from chewing through my trousers?

How do I keep my keys from chewing through my trousers? The threadbare spot on one pair has developed into a hole. This is probably related to the fact that it's where I place my keys in my front pockets.
