8 Leather Men's Shoulder Bags For Travelling (2022 Review)

Why choose leather travel bags?

1. It’s Tougher Than It Looks

Leather was used as early as in ancient Egypt. People made everyday items out of it. A process known as tanning was invented by the ancient Greeks to preserve the material.

The right conditions are required for making leather last for thousands of years. A process that treats leather in organic materials, like tree bark and plant tissue is called vegetable tanning. It is one of the forms of tanning.

Leather is a durable material, but the process of tanning elevates its life. This process helps you use leather to last a lifetime and is strong enough to sustain weights and weather conditions with proper care.

2. It’s Light Enough to Carry

Generally, leather bags come as either hand-carry bags or small backpacks.

Having a carry-on comes with benefits, like the comforting feeling that your bag is nearby and you also save on luggage fees. Granted the bag itself is not packed beyond capacity; the bag’s handle can support a lot of weight. You can use it to carry light items like your clothes and toiletries, but not heavier items, like laptops and cameras.

There is a misconception about the leather bags that they are heavy. But the truth is just the opposite of it. The leather bags are lighter than suitcases.

In addition, buying premium quality leather bags, they are going to be lighter than canvas and nylon backpacks.

Leather material is passed before it is transformed into a backpack through a process of tanning and that is the reason behind lighter bags. Cheap and bad-quality leather items are heavy.

3. It’s Easy to Clean

Caring for leather is simple. You can just wipe it with a clean cloth. Especially if it gets drenched.

Leather is water-resistant even when treated. And not allowing it to dry might cause the material to crack.

It is also advised to store the bag away from the sunlight to prolong its pristine looks.

For more thorough cleaning, you can use a leather cleaner. You can also use warm soapy water and rub the surface with a clean cloth. Some solutions include olive oil, vaseline.

If you are cleaning it with a homemade solution, do proper research as to what kind of leather it is and what solution works. Make sure to dust it dry with a soft brush before.

You can also lean towards leather conditioners to keep the leather from drying out.

4. Its Style Will Last

Leather has been a symbol of class for centuries.

In the olden days, handmaking the material made it expensive that was only afforded by the rich and famous.

Development in modern equipment and techniques, today, has cut the time required to make leather to just weeks at most. It won’t take as much to own a leather bag today, but it is still quite an investment.

Leather’s texture and looks will stay for years—perhaps, even outlasting its user, only if cared for properly. From time-to-time cleaning and conditioning is necessary.

Leather travel bags can draw curious gazes thinking where they can get one.
