Bags For Men A Huge Market

Brown satchel mens bag with front pocketsMen’s bags and accessories have become a huge market, and not long ago they would only use their pockets or a wallet. As time evolved and the use for more space was needed, like having to carry more items for example, hair grooming products, combs, cell phones, tablets, cameras etc, the need prompted a creation of bags in many different styles.

Sling bags, satchels, as seen in the first image, messenger bags, brief cases like the black one shown, and updated more modern duffel bags like the grey one shown in the last picture that can be vertical or horizontal to name a few. Hands free crossbody, like the messenger bag, along with the waist pouches started to become more popular and accepted. They are referred to as ‘Murses’. Gone are the days where a men would not be caught using any of these bags. There are some who have no interest, everyone has their own preferences. There are also the already popular and long time uses of brief cases, backpacks, and waist pouches.

Accessories not only include wallets but shaving bags, eyeglass cases, cameras, cell and tablet covers and more. These can be carried in a bag like the canvas camouflage chest or backpack style sling bag as seen in the image on the left.Brown leather brief case

Diaper bags for men eventually started to appear also. They are more masculine of course and come in handy for the hands on Dads in the family, or the single ones that raise children on their own. There are a variety of styles and sizes just as regular diapers bags, but geared more to male colors and fabrics like canvas.

Men’s bags are a great gift idea especially for the those who have everything. There are so many different choices, it’s getting to be like women’s purses and handbags where the possibilities of having the right one for you is endless.

    Hi Patsy,
    These bags are terrific and I love all of them. My son is always looking for ways to carry all his stuff around and he would really like the backpacks especially the canvas camouflage chest or backpack style sling bag. Every time my husband and I go on day or weekend trips he is always lugging around a huge suitcase, the Duffel bags are really attractive and something that he could really use. Thank you for sharing these great bags, you gave me some terrific ideas for presents.

    Very good post, my boyfriend is the type of man who puts everything inside the pockets of his jeans, and if is not enough he uses his old backpack which is torn for all the use. I want him to use something more stylish cause he’s the “practical” type of guy, and you just gave me ideas for a christmas present cause i had no idea what to give him. Great post!
