I love a good man bag. Fortunately there isn’t any shortage of them on the market. So here’s some of my top picks off Amazon, in order of preference:
DIESEL Blue Man Bag
Look at this, isn’t it gorgeous? It boasts two compartments with zip closures. It has a front pocket that is also a zip closure.
The strap is fully adjustable for comfort.
It looks like the perfect sized man bag to me.

MANNUOSI Messenger bag
This bag is big enough to hold an iPad.
It comes in either brown or black (I prefer the brown).
It has a handle as well as a strap.
It has a large compartment, followed by a smaller one. Perfect for a guy on the go.

I really like this bag. It boasts being waterproof, shockproof and scratchproof.

It has a closed hook for keys.

It’s also a great price.

I’ve nicknamed this the Economy Bag. Despite it’s afforable price it is one of the larger man bags on the market.
It comprises of two zipped compartments, a front pocket and a zipped pocket at the back.
It comes in a variety of colours including: grey/red (as image left), black/red, light brown/red and blue/red.
Price: £8.99, Buy Here.
THE NORTH FACE Shoulderbag
When you buy The North Face you buy quality. I have a The North Face Backpack that I’ve had for about a decade – it’s super comfy and has never let me down. I use my backpack every day I work, it’s that durable. This is how durable I imagine this little bag to be.
It has one central zipped compartment accessed from the top. There is a possible front compartment , I can’t tell from the photos on Amazon.
Price: £26.95, Buy Here.
flintronic Sling Bag, Chest Bag with USB Charging Port for Men
This has got to be one of my favourite bags. It doesn’t quite fit into the man bag category, being closer to a backpack rather than a man bag.
But this little beauty is packed with features and that meant I couldn’t possibly leave it off my list.
First is an external USB charging port which means you can charge your smart phone on the go. This does require you to buy a Power Bank. I’d recommend the GETIHU Power Bank because it give you an LED display with how much power is left in the battery.
The bag is water repellent meaning that electronics and books/notebooks should be some what protected from the rain.
The shoulder strap is fully adjustable to ensure maximum comfort.
The size of the large compartment is big enough for an iPad Mini. It is zip and clip close. Plus there are two zip closed pockets along the front. Ideal for phones, keys, passports and other smaller essentials.
Price: £9.99, Buy Here.
Mark Ryden Anti-Theft Sling Chest Bag Handbag for Men
This is the bag of my dreams! Everything about it has been well thought out for the modern man and I just love the futuristic design of this bag.
First it has an external USB for charging your phone on the go. Again you’ll need to buy a Power Bank and I recommend the GETIHU Power Bank because it give you an LED display with how much power is left in the battery.
This bag is fully waterproof. The main compartment is secured with a double zip meaning that you could put a small padlock on it. Inside it has a pocket for an iPad, two smaller pockets big enough for most smart phones and wires.
In addition to the main compartment there is a smaller one at the front.
It boasts a 3D breathable back with fully adjustable strap for comfort.
If you click the Buy Here link you’ll see just how much stuff you can fit into this deceptively small looking bag.
The price of this bag is the only thing that disappoints. It is quite pricey for a man bag, in my opinion.

Adidas Festival Bag
Adidas has dubbed this their festival bag. The perfect man bag to take to any festival or event (I am aware we are currently in various tiers of lockdown).
The main compartment has a large pocket a the back. There is a front pocket for small essentials. Both the main compartment and from pocket are zip closures.
I like this bags camouflage and quirky design.

This man bag is similar to the one above, but just has the brand name without logo, vertical rather than horizontal

The bag is super practical. The front pocket has pace for cards, smart phone, pen and keys. It even has a hole for ear phones and is complete with a zip closure.

Men’s Students Vintage Canvas Bag
This is the quirky entry on the list. It is a huge bag, that is more of a messenger bag than a man bag.
It’s main compartment is big enough to easily store an iPad along with any other essential items. The bag is so big that smaller items might get lost at the bottom of your bag, so this is not ideal for you if you have lots of small items that you want easy access too.
As the title indicates it is an ideal bag for students, so any male students out there get this ordered.
Price: £19.99, Buy Here.
Nike Men’s Core Small Items 3.0 Shoulder Bag
This discreet and non-descript looking bag is actually by Nike. Though you can barely see the Nike logo due to it also being black.
There’s not a lot to say about this bag. It’s a small man bag with one main compartment.
It’s lack of anything, selling features or otherwise makes me think it was designed on a Friday afternoon; the designers mainly trying to get through the last few hours of work before a planned weekend of enjoyable activities.
In my opinion not worth the price and it nearly didn’t end up on this list at all.
