If you think back to when you were younger, the postman stopped by with your daily mail and packages, right? He wore a broad, usually leather or canvas messenger bag. Having his bag close at hand gave him easy access to the myriad of boxes, parcels, and letters delivered throughout your family’s neighborhood.

Men’s messenger bags use started way before the mailman’s. The first messenger bags worn by men began appearing in the 1950s; however, it was not until 1984 that men started seeing their use other than mail.

Today, men’s messenger bags are typically rectangular shaped with a long strap, often worn over the shoulder or across the body.

What material you choose for your messenger bags constructions depends on how you will use it and your style preference.

The materials for messenger bags vary from leather to canvas, as I mentioned for mailmen (and women), also new materials like nylon and vinyl.

Sizes of men’s messenger bags vary too, from laptop size to small messenger bags, just big enough for some accessories or lunch.

Of course, now you can get a messenger bag from major retailers and brands, but many designers now produce bags. It has become a very “fashionable” way to carry your business supplies to and from the office.

The starting price point for messenger bags for men starts in stores or online for as low as $25. Like most clothing and accessories, how much you want to pay depends on features and your budget.

Messenger bags for men should be a staple in every man’s closet. They are durable. The material used to make these bags are long-lasting.

As long as the bags use is for its intended purpose, that is to carry office supplies, then your bag can last forever.

Note, not all messenger bags’ designs are to carry heavy items such as laptops. Some styles and bag features are to bring your paperwork, documents, cell phone/tablets only.

Yet, other bags and those most popular with younger men, or men like real estate agents who often work remotely, will accommodate laptops and accessories. Below are some of the best-selling messenger bags for men.

It would not be fair to outline only the benefits of owning a messenger bag, so let us look at a few considerations that may not be in its favor.

Note that an overstuffed messenger bag can become uncomfortable and place the shoulder under stress. However, this only happens when the messenger bag use is not for its intended purpose.

You always want to be aware of the bag’s weight limitation and any weather considerations for the material composition. Overstuffing the bag may cause the straps to fray, and the weather can cause rapid aging or staining.

The benefits far outweigh the disadvantages. Is the year where you can bring some semblance of order to your life by being more organized, by purchasing yourself a new messenger bag?
