As leather messenger bags are usually carried with a shoulder strap, you'll want to check out the weight too (especially if you're going to be carrying it long distances).

Hard shell leather briefcases were created in a time when paper was king. Most great hard shell briefcases will now have adapted to have slots to hold your laptop and other devices, however these will still function best for those with paper heavy professions.

Can leather bags get wet?

Leather bags generally have water resistance, but are not fully waterproof. Real leather has some natural water resistance, but excessive exposure to moisture can still cause damage.

Wherever possible, avoid damp or moisture on your leather goods. We know this is not always possible. So if your bag does get wet, here's what to do.

If you spill something on it, blot away the moisture with a clean dry cloth.

Caught in a rainstorm? Let your leather good completely air dry. Do not use a heat source to speed up the drying as this can damage the leather. Stuff the item with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape. This also helps to absorb moisture from the inside.

Taking proper care and precautions will help maintain the quality and longevity of your leather bag.

The design and style of leather bags are typically gender neutral. Allowing anyone to use them regardless of their gender identity. They are popular among individuals who appreciate the tactile feel of leather. And value the art of penning down their thoughts, ideas, and memories.

Most of our customers are men buying our bags. But we also see women getting great use out of them.

How do I clean my leather bag?

Treating a real leather bag with care can extend its life by years.

We recommend the following to care for your leather bag:

Always wash your hands before caring for leather. Oil from your hands can easily transfer to leather hide.

Once a week, we recommend getting a soft, dry (or slightly damp) cloth. Then briskly sweep the leather. Don't forget the inside too! Use a cloth to wipe down the lining and remove any dirt or residue.

Use a good leather cream or conditioner once or twice per year. This will prevent your leather item becoming dry or cracked. If you live in a dryer climate, you may need to do this more often.

Simply apply the cream to the entire item with a cloth and rub off any excess. We recommend using our all natural leather cream found in our store for our bags.

Be sure to take the time to care properly for your leather. If you do, your item can have a good, long life.

How much is a leather bag?

Real leather bags are generally more expensive than bags made from other materials. Prices can vary a lot depending on size and quality. Our collection of bags can go from $100 up to $500. You can understand why some are unsure if they are worth the money. The reason is because bags last a very long time. Decades in many cases.

Therefore, if they last longer they are a better investment. They will actually save you money in the long run. This is because you won’t have to keep replacing your bag after a few weeks. Full grain bags and top grain bags can last a very long time.

Why are leather bags so expensive?

Items are usually more expensive when made from real leather. This is because real leather is very expensive to buy and work with. It takes special skill to be able to craft leather goods. The artisans we work with have often passed down this skill for generations.

Crafting a leather bag takes time, care and effort. Happily though, the result is worth it. Real leather bags for men will last longer than other materials. It can be a buy for life purchase.

What are the best leather bag brands?

The leather industry is unusual in that it is not dominated by any one brand. Lots of smaller brands (like ourselves) are good options for customers. We recommend looking for the features you want in a leather good first. What size do you want? What type of leather do you want? What style of design do you want?
