The main function of a bag consists in holding and transporting its content. Besides the opening and closing the way how to carry a bag – with handles or a strap – is most important. Nowadays most of the bags used by men feature a strap.
Following we have collected some short information concerning sling bags for men:
Comfort and mobility
Normally a bag has one or two handles. Most people prefer to carry a bag by the strap instead of holding it with the handle. Mobility has become most important, because if you use the shoulder strap your hands remain free. You can either carry a second bag or even use a bike.
Shoulder strap as additional feature
Normally shoulder straps are attached to a bag in a way that they can be removed if they are not used. Therefore, "dog-hooks" are used which allow to fix or change the strap quickly, so that the strap can be rolled and put inside the bag if you don’t want to use it.
A business bag can be quite heavy if filled with a laptop and documents. Leather straps therefore often are reinforced with nylon to avoid stretching.
A wider strap gives greater comfort when the bag is carried. Straps may have an additional shoulder piece with a soft cushion.
The length of the strap should be adjustable so that you can make it longer or shorter according to your size or if you want to carry it across your shoulders.
Typical sling bags for men
The advantage of carrying a bag on your shoulder has had a strong influence on the design of modern cases. Today even traditional briefcases and attache cases are supplied with shoulder straps.
The messenger bag as a typical sling bag
Courier bags are the origin of the modern messenger bag. These bags consist of a large body which is closed by a big flap. An important feature is the strap which is used to carry the bag on the shoulder. The messenger bag is an ideal business bag for all the things you need in your professional activities.
A shoulder strap is a standard feature of a laptop bag. The design was created according to the first bags used for laptops and their accessories, the printer, discs, battery etc. When the notebook itself became smaller and less accessories were needed the resulting free space could be used for files and pockets for a mobile, cards, pens etc.
These laptop bags are used by men as well as by women. But a woman will always try to find a bag which has a different colour, fittings and other details so that it does not look same as the bag of her male colleague.
Briefcases and attache cases with shoulder strap
Briecases and attache cases were the traditional business bags of a man. When laptops were not yet available briefcases were designed according to the size of files and legal books. For some time, these cases were also produced with additional shoulder straps. But today their share is much less than the one of the modern zip cases with two handles and a shoulder strap.
Sling bags for camera equipment and other instruments
Cases for your camera equipment, music instruments etc are sling bags. As a hobby photographer you will choose a bag which can be carried comfortably.
The backpack as alternative choice
Today also backpacks are used instead of sling bags. The advantage of backpacks has been known from sports or tracking for a long time and recently they have become very popular also as business bags.
