Top 10 Ultimate Metrosexual Man Bags

Man Bag

One of the smartest metrosexual Wookies around, Chewbacca knew the benefits of carrying a bag!

In choosing a man bag, the criteria should be as follows: small, sleek, lightweight, and definitely not look like a purse. It’s a way to carry a little something extra that wouldn’t fit into the pockets of a pair of khakis without creating unsightly bulges. Briefcases, messenger bags and backpacks are not man bags. They are too large and bulky to carry on a daily basis without looking like you’re headed to school or work. Fannypacks are a no-no, unless you want to look like an ubergeek and repel women. Also, stay away from fancy designs, patterns, or the color pink. Flight, utility, and certain camera bags generally fall into the category of man bags.

Finding man bags that are worthy of carrying on a daily basis can be a bit of work, so we’ve created a list of the Top 10 Ultimate Metrosexual Man Bags to get you started!

    Niiiiiice list! Normally I wouldn’t carry a purse… whoops I mean manbag, but these are slick!

  • jan

    My boyfriend needs one of these. Maybe it’ll keep him more organized.

  • razi

    guys don’t need purses! what has the world come to!?

  • jan

    There’s nothing wrong with a guy carrying a bag to keep organized! :)

  • glimmerish

    I think the bags shown here are nice enough for any occasion without looking girly, but at the same time they’re nice enough for me to carry too!

  • yume

    I never knew chewy had a bag! LOL

  • zeoth

    Holy crap. That’s not metrosexual, it’s homosexual. No guy should EVER carry so much crap they need a purse. Laptop bag I can see but a man purse? What are you putting in there… male tampons, bald scalp toner, and a year’s supply of ky jelly?

  • Terry Ng

    Someone sure has a fear of being labeled. ;)

    If I’m on the go and need to carry my treo, wallet, nintendo ds lite, and mini camcorder(for vodcasts of course)… I doubt all of that is going to fit in my pocket.

    These bags are sweet, and serve a good purpose. If you’re not man enough to carry one, then by all means.. stuff your pockets and look like a dork.


    Wow Never thought for one second that men everywhere either than myself would sink to this levels as to even think about buying a MURSE !, for all you out there i give you the sarcastic clap ( clap………..clap………..clap……. )

  • jan

    You guys are so sensitive! hehehe

  • rbx6jm7man

    i wouldn’t mind carrying a bag around. but it depends on why i’m carrying a bag. if i don’t need to carry it, why lug it around? but if i need something to carry stuff, i might as well do it in style!

  • RyanA

    they are of fine fabrication, indeed. i just prefer using a messenger bag, or something more sporty.
    i do agree that stuffed pockets is not cool. and quite uncomfortable.

  • Goodsire McCricket

    Guys, I have to say that you are missing out on wonderful attention from the ladies by insisting on uber-macho personas. (not to even mention the great fashion ;)
    I have several Kenneth Cole bags and not only are they simply practical but always an unexpected compliment grabber.

    b.t.w. The KC bag here has been one of my favs…great purchase for anyone shopping around.

  • heartofjosh

    There’s no shame in carrying a bag. I have one with me all the time to carry stuff.

  • rdigp

    I think carrying a bag is a must because if you have a PSP, digital camera,video camera and sometime your gf stuff. Where do you carry those things if you don’t have a bag

  • rereynoso

    So carrying a satchel, man-bag as you all are calling it, makes one less of a man? I’ve got a few of these “murses” which I use to carry whatever I need that day. I don’t carry one everyday, but the days I need one I have no problwm hanging one off my shoulders. Yeah, my leather one is my art bag, holding sketch book, pens, pencils, markers..etc..etc.. But the I have a field bag, which carries knife, leatherman, tools, cord…etc…etc, along with my iPod and Moleskine. I’d rather carry that then a backpack. Zeoth and DJ-Hades, what do you carry al your stuff in, a backpack?

    Jack Bauer of 24 wears a man bag. And he can kill you in 3 seconds. I do not think he is gay.

  • Dexter Kanuto

  • mylittletoby

    I bought my husband a man bag from leather tree and although he was reluctant, he now says he doesnt know how he managed without it. They have a great variety, you can see them here

  • stickman

    Gimme a break.
    Insecure little men feel threatened if someone steps out of the “norm”.
    I’m diabetic. I carry my insulin, glucose meter and other medical supplies with me.
    I also like to have my camera handy. Add my cell phone, emergency candy, keys, pen and wallet to the mix and you’ll understand why I need a bag.
    Oh, I suppose I could buy some oversized, baggy trousers with rediculous pockets and walk around with my pants around my knees, clanging and jingling with every step like some big, Oompah-Loompah, or I could tuck my shirt inside my pants and have twenty little belt holsters and a pocket protector (what’s gayer than that?), or I could put all my stuff in a bag. I choose the bag.
    I’m secure enough in my sexuality to wear a shoulder bag – despite the comments from those who feel threatened.
    Besides, my wife likes it.
    Grow up, get over it.

  • ocando

    nice bag

  • slimjim1814

    Hello people it’s 2009 the last time I checked. Men have just as much stuff to carry around as women do. I have the wallet (for which I will never put in my back pocket…can you say chiropracter), mp3 player & ear phones, camera, cell phone, keys, a pen, chap stick, gum, mints. Where do u expect me to carry all this. Now you could say, just don’t but I need my stuff with me. Americans need to get over the “norm”, what is the norm now-a-days…I’ll tell ya…it’s what YOU make it.
    I’m so delighted that more designers are making bags for men…the selection 5 years ago was just awful.
    #6 and #10 look very nice. Kenneth Cole makes some very nice man bags, also Timberland (was at an outlet store a few weeks ago and saw a couple of bags that were very nice.

  • urbantool

    slimjim1814 –
    I totally agree with you – that’s how I discovered Urban Tool. My chapstick, wallet, phones, keys, pen were all over the sushi table when someone told me that I needed an Urban Tool holster. Long story short – check out our site – if you mention kineda in your order I will toss in a free lanyard.

  • roderick pike

    I am a big fan of Briggs & Riley luggage. I have their Glide Backpack ( )which looks really great and can carry a whole lot of stuff. It’s got a padded section to store my 15”laptop. The tech section has multiple pockets to hold all my tech gadgets. The U-shaped organizer with multiple mesh, zippered and slip pockets carries all my pens, cards and more. The front organizer holds my mp3 player, PDA, etc. It’s even got a port hole for my mp3 headphone cord! A padded vertical pocket on the outside conveniently holds my cell phone for easy access. Really thoughtfully designed and I would recommend it for anyone who’s interested in style plus functionality with durability. All that Briggs & Riley makes comes with a lifetime warranty too!

    I’ll rock one of these bags anyday of the week. These are slick and manly for those of us who are practical. Besides for those of us who are looking for a casual conversation starter here goes. It takes a bad man to carry a man purse.

  • Kcmoman54

    Whilst we are somewhat biased here at rawdice, given we have an overwhelming use of man bag’s here in the UK and if my partner is anything to go by, we are now talking bags for different purposes… business (laptop and papers), casual (iPad, wallet, magazine, and worryingly icrease in miscellaeous stuff I daren’t investigate), gym bag (although that still seems to be immovable!). Have to say bags suggest confidence and thats always good with the ladies.
