Men's leather messenger bags have been around for decades but they have become increasingly more popular today simply because the modern man has more stuff to lug around with him today. The history of the messenger bag is rich and there is no definitive claim to its origin but it was born out of a need to conveniently transport cargo while being able to easily access it. British explorers would have kept their personal belongings in a leather satchel. Horse couriers would have also used them to transport their cargo. Postmen and messengers still use them to this day. Today, there are as many uses for the messenger bag as there are styles. These bags are extremely functional and come in a wide array of styles, designs and materials. Finding the right bag for you may be a bit of a daunting task. That is why it is important to do a little research before purchasing.

What to look for in a leather messenger bag?


One of the most important questions to ask yourself before buying a leather messenger bag is "What will I be carrying in this bag?" Men's leather messenger bags come in an almost unlimited number of designs and configurations, from the simplistic to the ultra compartmentalized. If you are carrying smaller items such as Ipods, keys, pens and other stationary, etc... then you will probably need a smaller bag or a one that has numerous small item storage compartments and pouches. This will ensure your small items will be properly tucked away and easily found instead of swishing around at the bottom of the bag. If you will be carrying larger items such as laptops, A4 folders, umbrellas, etc... then maybe you will require a larger bag and possibly consider one with some padding. For quick access while on the morning commute, consider a messenger bag with external compartments or pockets. There is no shortage of options on the market and it is important that you carefully think about what your bag will be used for before spending your hard earned money.


Another important question to ask is "Where will I be carrying this bag?" To decide what style bag to buy, you must first think about its core purpose and what environment you will be using it. If it will be a work bag then you will want something that depicts a certain level of professionalism. It may not send the right message if you step into the boardroom with an Ed Hardy messenger bag covered in dragon graphic art. That may send the wrong message. Finding the right men’s leather messenger bag is not difficult but something that requires a little thought. There are so many styles out there.
