Men’s Bags

Every guy needs a signature bag. I’m not talking about a man-bag or man-purse; I’m talking about a must-have piece to carry your essentials. Bags aren’t just for women anymore. You rock a killer beard, look all fly, why slack on the accessories? Whether you’re a frequent traveler, businessman, or just an everyday guy – you need something timeless, durable and cool to carry your most valued possessions. Here are the bag options a man should have and what they are best used for:

The Backpack


No, not the backpack that you carried around during college; we’re talking about a grown up version.  It’s time for something that you can fit more than just your schoolbooks. This wool daypack has enough space to carry everything you need for the entire day. It features full leather shoulder straps, magnetic clasps and drawstring for quick access, and a padded laptop sleeve inside. (Win this bag! See the contest box at the end of this article.)

This is your ultimate travel companion. Whether you’re on the road, out exploring, or just need a daily pack; this is your go-to. The roll top allows you to size the bag to your needs. It’s also great for traveling because you can pack a weekend’s worth of gear into it.

The Satchel

Not every guy can pull this one off, but this bag is perfect for daily use while commuting around town. Pack your iPad, laptop or other essentials in this bag and throw it around your shoulder and go. Ideal for dudes who only carry a few items.

The Briefcase

Everyone carries a laptop or tablet these days. Give your valuables some protection in style. It doesn’t have to be used strictly for business, but it will heighten your business attire game dramatically. Imagine strolling into the office with this around your shoulder.

The Dopp Kit

Also known as a shave kit, travel kit, or toiletry bag. Every beardsman needs one. Even if you rock a beard and don’t shave (although you should still groom it) you need a small bag for your beard oils, scissors, deodorant, cologne, toothbrush, pomade, etc.  (Win this bag! See the contest box at the end of this article.)
