What happens when you have your messenger bag on your shoulder and your laptop in your pocket?
It turns out there are a lot of things that can go wrong.
A new study by The New York Times found that the average user is able to carry a whopping 6.4 pounds of luggage at the same time.
That’s more than double the weight of a smartphone, and is on par with an average American’s bag, according to the study.
That means that your smartphone, tablet, and camera all weigh nearly twice as much as your messenger bags.
The study analyzed how people carried their luggage over a three-month period in 2013, 2014, and 2015, and found that carrying around six to eight pounds of bags on a daily basis is a recipe for disaster.
When it comes to the heavier items, the study found that men carried about two pounds more, and women carried about three pounds more.
And if you’re a person of color, carrying more than one item of clothing in your bag can be problematic.
“When a person’s bag is heavy, they can easily lose weight or become dehydrated,” the study’s lead author, Elizabeth Schulte, said in a statement.
“That could have serious consequences, such as weight gain or increased risk of falls.”
The researchers also found that a woman’s bag weighed more than a man’s.
“The most common reason people carry heavier bags is because of gender,” Schultes said.
“Men carry more than women because they are perceived as more responsible.”
If you’re not as concerned about your bag getting caught on a bar, a wall, or an overhead window, you might still want to consider how you pack your bags.
A lot of people use a laptop, tablet or phone as their primary mode of transportation, but not all are comfortable carrying that much.
A recent study found a lot more people in the United States are choosing to carry their smartphones, tablets, and other mobile devices in their bags than in their backpacks, according the study from the National Bureau of Economic Research.
That makes sense, since it’s easier to carry around a tablet than a laptop.
The researchers suggest that people who carry their bags in their pockets are generally better suited for that purpose.
“If you are using your laptop for video calls, your bag is more convenient for carrying it.
You don’t have to worry about putting it on the counter, because you have it there,” said study author David Wegner, a researcher at the University of Washington.
“But if you have a laptop on your back, it’s not as convenient to carry it around.”
