Types of Bags for Men

A resourceful man can make any bag work, but why not choose one that's made to carry what you need when you need it? Here are six bag styles that every guy could use:

The backpack – Perfect for keeping your hands free during the commute to class or work, our Dartmouth backpack can carry your laptop, notebooks, wallet, and other essentials comfortably and in style.

The belt bag – Designed to be worn across the chest or around the waist, a belt bag like the Harker lets you bring just the essentials without stuffing your pockets to the point of discomfort.

The business tote – For a day at the office, nothing compares to the Brahmin Business Tote. With features like pen loops, a key clip, and an interior padded laptop pocket, you can keep everything organized and still have room for file folders, a journal, and a bottle of your favorite beverage.

The duffle – Grab it and go! Whether you're heading to the gym after work or going on an overnight business trip, our Duxbury Duffle will tote all you need in style. With room for your electronic devices and an extra pair of shoes, plus interior pockets to keep your business cards separate from your hand sanitizer, a duffle makes the work-to-life transition effortless.

The weekender – Larger than a duffle, Brahmin's Duxbury Weekender can hold enough clothes for a weekend getaway, your laptop, journal, travel documents, and more.

The portfolio – Don't forget a place to contain papers, folders and your laptop portfolio. Keep contents protected. Easily add put this into any of your favorite Brahmin Bags.
