Leather Laptop Bags for Men Built for Protection and Style

On the lookout for a leather bag this year for yourself or a loved one?

Not sure what you need?

We get it - there are just so many to choose from!

At The Real Leather Company, we think a premium leather laptop bag should be for life. If you agree, then shouldn’t you make sure you’re getting everything out of it you need?

Before going ahead and buying the first men’s leather computer bag you see, have you thought about these three questions?

  • Do I want a messenger bag, a briefcase or a backpack?
  • Should I go for full grain leather, top grain leather or genuine leather?
  • What size laptop should my bag be built to hold?

All super important questions. Read on for more information on these questions.

Styles of Laptop Bags

There are four main types of men's and women's laptop leather bags. Here, we'll go through what to look for in each.

Messenger Bags

Typically a great place to start, leather messenger bags are usually built specifically to house a laptop. Think more your mailbag or crossbody style.

Leather laptop messenger bags are becoming increasingly more popular with professional men. You’ve probably seen plenty of both younger and older guys carrying them to work.

We hear that our customers love these because are super convenient, easy to carry and give a real premium look.

Leather messenger bags are a great bag when making your first step into the world of work. These bags say “I’m not a kid anymore, but neither am I a super serious high court judge”.

We see leather messenger bags as one of our best-selling collections due to their usefulness. 

Got a meeting in the city? What about a night away with the wife? Or even a day picking up some new clothes? You’ll find leather messenger bags are usually suitable for any occasion.

Be sure to look closely at the dimensions and interior of any leather messenger bags. You want to be sure that this bag will hold everything you need. The strap will mean you can carry these shoulder bags comfortably over longer distances.

Look closely at the weight too. As these are primarily held over the shoulder you want to make sure you get something that you can carry comfortably. You might find leather a little heavier than you’re expecting.

These are great whether you’re an Indiana Jones type, or more a Jim Halpert type. You’ll find leather messenger bags are super versatile and a great choice for a leather computer bags for men.


If the leather messenger bag falls somewhere between professional and casual. The leather briefcase falls firmly in the professional category.

You’ll find the leather briefcase is a great choice for those who are looking to be taken seriously. Perfect for doctors, lawyers or any high powered professional (or one looking to get there!).

A classic staple for decades. The leather briefcase has evolved to be a great choice for a leather laptop bag.

Briefcases were oncen a primary tool for papers and documents. But now many of the best-selling leather attaché briefcases these days will have special compartments. Not just your laptop, but also your tablet, cell phone and charging cables too.

Be extra sure to look closely at the dimensions of a leather briefcase. They’re not built to stretch!

Weight is a really important consideration here. In the past it may not have been much of an inconvenience to carry a heavier leather briefcase.

This is because you really only carried papers and documents. These days that’s different. Most leather briefcases will only be carried with a top handle. When you’re carrying heavier devices this can become strenuous quickly.


These are often more for the sophisticated outdoorsman. But we do see that leather backpacks are increasingly becoming a great choice for a leather computer bag for men.

You just can’t beat the convenience of a good backpack. They’re still the most comfortable way to carry a good deal of stuff. 

Looking for a real upgrade on your old backpack from school? You might find leather backpacks are a great choice. They’re hardwearing, comfortable and give you that classic look you’re after.

They are usually more useful for a casual setting. You’ll find leather backpacks are a great choice for hiking, camping or even a weekend city break. Built to house a load of gear in really premium material, most will find a leather backpack a real step up.

We’d recommend looking closely for one that has a special padded laptop sleeve (usually this will go against your back).

These days, there are a ton of custom designs and secret pockets on many backpacks. We find these are always nice surprises for the wearer.

Again, note that leather is heavier than most alternatives. Leather backpacks may be a little heavier that your last leather laptop sleeve. Be sure to take that into account when reading up on your next leather laptop case.


Lastly, duffels can also be a choice for a laptop bag in leather. These can be perfect. 

Especially if you're looking for a weekend travel bag that can store your laptop for any work uses. Many of our duffels have concealed pockets on the underside to slide your laptop into. 

This keeps your computer straight against the floor of the bag. And away from any dirty shoes, clothes or water bottles in the main pocket.

Real Leather Only

Our leather laptop bags are built from premium leather only. They are designed to carry your laptop computer in a secure laptop sleeve that will hold up over decades. These leather laptop bags for women and men are your ticket to protecting your laptop. Yet still showing off your classic style.

Our bags are made with real leather, which is a strong and flexible material. It's not only durable, but it also looks really cool! We make sure to get our leather from places that care about the environment.

When choosing a laptop bag, the type of leather selected is a crucial choice. If you're investing in real leather, you'll want it to last. That's why we recommend full grain leather laptop bags and top grain leather laptop bags only. 

New to this leather world? You might have seen confusing words like ‘full grain leather’ and ‘top grain leather’ thrown around. 

Not sure what these mean? Don’t worry! Here’s a quick guide:

Full Grain Leather

This is the very top layer of the leather hide and is the best grain available. It’s not treated, sanded or buffed. It’s exactly as it comes off the animal.

Because no chemical processes are permitted, it’s really difficult to work with. Thus is the most expensive type of leather. However full grain leather is also the most hardwearing and usually lasts longest.

Top Grain Leather

This is the most common leather you’ll see on higher end leather computer bags for men. The very top layer of the hide is again used. However chemical processes are permitted this time. 

The hide can be buffed and sanded and imperfections removed. This usually leads to a more uniform and smooth finish to the bag.

Genuine Leather

The top layer of hide is split off for top and full grain leathers. Then the rest is used as genuine leather. Artificial processes are applied here in an attempt to make genuine leather look like top grain leather. Essentially genuine leather is a collection of the lowest grade leftover pieces of leather.

This is not the most in demand type of leather. So usually you will find genuine leather laptop bags a bit more on the affordable side.

Colors & Sizes

In our collection we have a range of colors. Use the filters on this page to cycle between different colors. We have a range of brown leather laptop bags, black leather laptop bags and more. Please note that as these bags are made from real leather they are not one hundred percent water resistant.

Laptop Fit

When selecting a laptop bag, it's very important you look closely at the size. Choose a size that ensures the laptop is suitable for the bag. Measure the screen of your laptop from bottom left to top right, then look for a bag that fits this size. 

When buying a leather computer bag for men look into what size of laptop the bag is built to hold. Measure your laptop and make a note of this when you’re browsing different bags. 

Most laptops will be either 13, 15 or 17 inches. You’ll want a bag that protects your size the best. For example:

  1. Your macbook air measures 13 inches. Get a laptop sleeve that fits up to 13 inch laptops.
  2. Your macbook pro measures 16 inches. Get a computer bag that fits up to 17 inch laptops.

You can use the filters on this webpage to scroll through the different sizes of bags available.

Look for a product that specifically states it fits a ‘X inch laptop’. Bonus points if it’s in a padded sleeve too!

Our bags are not only stylish but also really safe for your laptop. We have a special padded pocket to keep your laptop protected from any bumps or scratches. You can carry your laptop with confidence, knowing it's safe in our bag.

We have lots of different styles to choose from. You can pick a simple and modern bag or go for a classic, old fashioned look. No matter what style you like, we have a bag that will fit your laptop perfectly.

We know how important it is to have a bag that's easy to use. That's why our bags have lots of pockets and pockets. You can keep all your stuff organized, like chargers, cables, notebooks, and pens. The straps are adjustable and comfortable, and there are sturdy handles too.

Can leather laptop bags get wet?

Leather laptop 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 bag. 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.

Stuff the bag with newspaper to help the bag keep its shape. This also helps to absorb moisture from the inside.

How do I look after my leather laptop sleeve?

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

We recommend the following to care for your leather laptop 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 bag 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 bag 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 bag can have a good, long life.
