Leather Sling Bags for Men

Built to keep your Essentials Safe.

Been anywhere near an urban city recently? You will have noticed hoards of people wearing a totally new style of bag. Enter leather sling bags for men. These bags have exploded in popularity. And, we think, for good reason too. As the world moves on we all have more devices (and smaller pockets it seems!). We need more places to put them. Leather sling bags for men are a great way to carry all your gear in a stylish way.

Style and Versatility

Our leather sling bags effortlessly combine style and versatility. Making them a must-have addition to your wardrobe. Whether you're dressing up for a formal event or going for a casual day out. Our collection offers a variety of designs and colors to match every occasion. The richness of leather complements any outfit. Adding a touch of sophistication to your overall look.

We see these cross body bags are popular as both women's and men's leather sling bags. For men they give a real classic look. They can go great with a nice pair of leather shoes and a leather watch strap. They are ideal for men that need to carry more gear than they can fit in their pockets. For women, we find these bags are ideal when you don't quite have enough gear to make a handbag worthwhile. Not to mention, the horrific lack of pockets on women's clothes make these bags an awesome convenience.

Aside from the style statement of grabbing a sling bag in leather. These bags are also great for the protection and safety of your valuables. Hundreds of pickpockets are active in your city every day. What better to combat them than not putting any of your gear in your pockets? All our leather crossbody sling bags for men fasten with either a button or a zipper. These bags are held directly against your body making pickpocketing so much more challenging. You can keep your devices, passport and important items safely with you all day.

At The Real Leather Company, we take pride in the quality and craftsmanship of our products. Each leather sling bag is expertly designed by skilled artisans. Using top-notch leather sourced from sustainable and ethical suppliers. Our commitment to excellence ensures that you receive a product that looks stunning. But it also stands the test of time. And provides you with a reliable companion for years to come.

Durability and Longevity

Investing in a leather sling bag from The Real Leather Company means investing in long-lasting durability. Leather is known for its resilience, getting better with age as it develops a unique patina over time. With proper care, your leather sling bag will remain a stylish companion for years, making it a sustainable and worthwhile purchase.

When selecting a leather sling bag for men or women, it's crucial you choose one that is built to last. Leather is a little more expensive than alternatives, but it's because if you choose the right one it'll last way longer. We recommend choosing a bag that is made from either full grain leather or top grain leather. These are both the very top layer of the animal hide. This means this type of leather will easily last the longest. If you want something totally unique, go for full grain leather. This is not permitted to have any processes applied so the imperfections from the animal will go direct to your bag. If you want something a bit smoother, go for top grain leather. Top grain leather permits processing so can have marks buffed out. 

We do not recommend genuine leather, PU leather or faux leather. All these types of leather are either the lowest quality available or not actually real leather. As a consequence they will not last anywhere near as long as full or top grain leather.

Function and Convenience

Function is at the core of our designs. Each leather sling bag is thoughtfully crafted with practical features to make your life easier. The adjustable shoulder straps ensure a comfortable fit. And allow you to carry your essentials hands-free. With well-organized compartments you can effortlessly store your belongings. Including your wallet, phone, keys, and more. Our sling bags are designed to keep you organized and stylish, no matter where your day takes you.

Be sure to choose a leather bag that has smart organization of your valuables. Multiple pockets is always a bonus. Smart interior organization can make it easier to find your gear.

Variety and Options

We understand that individual preferences vary, and our collection reflects that. We have a diverse range of styles, sizes, and designs. You can choose the leather sling bag that perfectly matches your unique taste. Whether you prefer a sleek and modern look or a more vintage-inspired design, we have something for everyone.

Sling bags can be worn as chest bags using the strap. You also have the option of rotating them to your rear and wearing them over the shoulder as sling leather backpacks. Or, they can be worn more as a fanny pack across the waist. In our store, we stock a range of colors. You can choose from both black leather sling bags for men and brown leather sling bags for men.

Can leather sling bags get wet?

Leather slings 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.

Caught in a rainstorm? Let your leather bag completely air dry. Do not use a heat source to speed up the drying as this can damage the leather. Stuff the bag 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 sling bag.

How do I clean my leather sling bag?

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

We recommend the following to care for your leather sling 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.
