Backpacks vs Messenger Bags for Work/Professionals

Backpacks vs Messenger Bags for Work/Professionals26 Products

With bags coming in all shapes and sizes, it can often be difficult to figure out which is best for you in terms of your needs when looking for a bag suitable for work. We’ve decided to talk about a hot topic and choose two of the most common styles people look at when searching for a new work bag. Backpacks & Messenger Bags are both go-to designs for working professionals, but there are a few things to consider when making the choice between the two.


The first thing everyone thinks about is appearance. Is it suitable for your workplace? Is it stylish enough? Backpacks are generally more casual than Messenger bags, but by choosing one made from leather, you immediately get something that is smart and doesn’t resemble the one you had in junior high. Opting for a backpack also comes in handy for those commuters who cycle to work as you just need to throw it over your shoulders and it’s out of your way.


If you do want to stick to the old classic messenger bag, a sleek leather one is a staple for many smart professionals. Messenger bags, or satchel bags which are pretty much the same these days, are ideal for when you need easy access to your belongings on the go, rather than having to take your backpack off to get to your possessions, you can just flip up the flap and reach inside.


MAHI has a range of backpacks as well as messenger/satchel bags, which are ideal for work. Once you figure out which one is best for you in your day-to-day work life, all you need to do is pick your style. I’ll take that Classic Backpack in Vintage Brown, please!
