Modern Men’s Bags
What do you do when the warm weather arrives, and you don’t always have your jacket or sweater with pockets? At times your shorts or pants don’t have any pockets either. Where would you put your mobile phone, wallet, comb or anything else you need to carry for that day?
A murse, or man purse is no longer considered feminine by the majority anymore. Today, modern
men’s bags are all about being practical. There are a variety of styles and colors to choose from, along with being masculine. Below is a men’s brown travel bag with front pockets also known as the famous Saddleback, or the smaller version Saddlebag.
When men first started to carry bags they were frowned upon and laughed at. They did not consider that these bags were something to carry their necessities in. Using a messenger bag with the long strap and flap closure, or the satchel which is a smaller version of the messenger bag, a waist pouch, backpack and duffel bag, all of which are the most popular, isn’t an issue as it was before.
They are widely accepted around the world, and it’s only a matter of time before they are accepted by everyone. The market for men’s bags is growing and they are here to stay. Men’s bags date as far back as 5000 years ago, and I will get into this in more detail in another article.
Before this current time as bags gain more in popularity, men’s bags were around in the ’70’s. Market research shows an increase in sales by 3 percent which may not seem like much, but the total was $957 million in mid 2013.
The Need For Man Bags
Men continue to learn how important it is to have a bag to carry their belongings in. What is needed to bring along grows over time for example, mobile chargers, larger wallets, headphones, glasses case, keys, chapstick, books, medication and more. There are also bags to carry your skateboard along also.
Pants and shorts become tighter with smaller pockets or none at all. The guys have to find a solution, and with the sizes and varieties to choose from, owning more than one is practical. Men’s pockets get stuffed, having to hand over a few things to women who are adding them to their own purse or handbag. Men can choose a smaller tote bag made for everyday use, over the typical larger sizes used for the gym or an overnight stay.
You don’t have to refer to them as a murse or man purse, but as a bag or tote. Today men having bags of all types are common and not attracting attention as before. They blend in along with women having purses and handbags, accepting as it should be and not judging anymore.
Using an all weather protection product like Tana All Protector or a special conditioner that is sold for footwear, is a benefit to keep your bags lasting longer.
