Vintage Leather Messenger Bags have become unbelievably popular over the past few years, with tonnes of men using them for work and travel.
Not only do they look stylish, they can also be really practical and a great way to carry your stuff while still looking smart.
If you’re searching for your next vintage bag then check out our top picks:
The Wowbox Satchel is one of our favorite vintage leather messenger bags because it has a mix of canvas fabric and real leather, making it look modern and stylish as well as vintage and retro.
An awesome choice for the highly organised, this satchel has multiple pockets to separate your belongings and enough space to fit a 14 inch laptop or MacBook. While it may not be as sturdy as a full leather messenger bag, the Wowbox satchel is made of high quality material, making it strong enough to carry a medium to heavy load.
Tip: treat the canvas with a waterproofing spray to make it last longer in the rain!
If you want a full body leather bag that isn’t too rigid and stiff then the Komal vintage leather messenger bag is a real winner. Made from Buffalo leather and lined with high quality canvas, this bag gives you the vintage look of the real thing without the starchy feel and lack of space.
It contains enough space to fit a 15 inch laptop or MacBook and central padding to keep it safe from damage. This satchel also has a number of compartments and could easily be used for a weekend break!
If you love the style and quality of Komal leather messenger bags then the Passion leather is another one to consider.
A little bigger than some of the other options, this bag can fit an 18 inch laptop as well as other supplies, making it perfect for a weekend break. It also has a more vintage feel than the other bags we’ve mentioned with its traditional rigid leather exterior, making it a seriously sturdy high quality product that can hold a lot of weight.
The one snag with owning this Komal product is the strong smell of the natural leather. While it will diminish over time, be aware that the odour is extremely powerful.

The soft interior of this bag means it can store a serious amount of stuff, which is also protected from accidental drops. Similar to the Wowbox satchel, this messenger bag comes with plenty of compartments, making it the perfect choice for the highly organised traveler.
You can also choose the color of the canvas material, personalising the style of the bag to suit you!
The mix of canvas material and real leather is extremely popular when it comes to vintage leather messenger bags and the Langforth brand has another top choice in this style.
This bag has similar functions to our other top picks including the multiple compartments and the padded interior, but the one thing we love about this product is the buckle straps. If you’re going on a city break and want to wear it over your shoulder, the buckle straps add extra security, making it harder for anyone to get into!
While it states that it’s suitable for a 15 inch laptop we’d recommend finding something bigger to fit that size, as this leather messenger bag should only take a 14 inch laptop or MacBook.
