Leather Sling Bags for your Essentials

Been anywhere near an urban city recently? You will have noticed hoards of people wearing a totally new style of bag for everyday use. Enter leather sling bags. 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 are a great way to carry all your gear.

Sling Bags for Style

Our leather sling bags effortlessly combine style and versatility. Check out our best sling bags below. They are available in a range of colors, from deep browns, to blacks, to greens.

The Tersus is new arrival, with room for your essentials but still in a classic small zippered pocket design that has easy access features. This chest bag has got a secret anti-theft rear zipper too.

The Cross is one of our classic best sellers. It’s made from heavier stuff - buffalo leather and is a bit rougher around the edges. If this sounds like you, The Cross is a great choice as a sling or men’s backpack. 

The Sling is a double use sling bag, belt bag and fanny pack - for those days when you need to be hands-free, you can use the waist strap or the adjustable straps. It’s the perfect minimalist bag for travel.

The Obrysus is a peak design bag. This small sling bag has a quality shoulder strap so you can wear it as a chest bag or as a waist bag. This shoulder sling has webbing inside to protect you gear. You’ll know it’s built to last.

Investing in a leather crossbody bag from The Real Leather Company means investing in long-lasting durability. Leather is known for its resilience, which gets better with age as it develops a unique patina over time. With proper care, your leather sling pack will remain a stylish companion for years. We use only full grain leather and top grain leather - the best grades out there.

Our leather slings make an ideal present. Grab a Real Leather gift card today and let them choose their own gift.

Men’s Sling Bags for all Occasions 

We find our sling bags are used for a wide variety of occasions. They can be worn as sling backpacks, sling purses or even across the body.

Many customers use our men’s and women’s leather sling crossbody bags as everyday carries (EDC) for those days you are commuting to the office.

They are also great as travel companions when you are exploring. Whether it’s a day in Texas, a week in South Korea, a fortnight in Patagonia or a month-long backpacking adventure in Thailand, these slings are built for adventure.

Some of our younger customers also like these bags for school for those days they only need to carry the essentials like pens, pencils, Nintendo switch, iPad, charger, other valuables and perhaps a small water bottle.

Fanny Packs, Messenger Bags, Backpacks and More

At The Real Leather Company, our goal is to be a one stop leather shop. If you are looking for something a little larger to carry your gear, check out our leather messenger bags and tote bags. For something a little smarter for business days, if you’re a professional, our leather briefcases are always popular.

Or if you really need to carry a lot of gear our leather duffles and travel bags are great for weekends. You can easily get all your gear in our duffels.

Our leather travel backpacks are ideal for the true explorers out there.
