Satchel bags are one of the most versatile and convenient pieces of clothing you can purchase. These bags come in a variety of different styles to meet your needs. In this article I am going to share some tips on how to select the best satchel bag for your needs. So, without further ado let’s get started.
There are two handles on a satchel bag. The two handles can be curved or flat. The two handles are also typically stitched together, although there are some styles that have two handles woven together. For satchel bags that have two handles the choice usually comes down to the look and/or the functionality you want from the bag.
A leather satchel bag with just two handles will not have much of a selection. If that is what you are looking for then go for a simple style. However, you could add a third handle for more of a selection. Many of these bags have a flap closure at the top of the bag. This is fine if you are going to use it to carry a laptop or a small handbag. However, if you are looking for a large tote bag, then this flap may not help you to carry the bag at all.
For something that is a bit better quality you should consider bags with three or four handles. Four handles are generally more durable and the handle material tends to be stronger. With four handles, you will have a bit more of a selection to choose from. Many of these bags have larger interior compartments and zipper pockets on both the outside and inside of the bag.
Many of the bigger brand name handbags carry a bit more style than these smaller brands do. There is certainly an overall trend towards larger and more grand handbags. These larger bags will look much like purses. In fact, they are often referred to as purses.
Satchels are great smaller versions of messenger bags. They tend to be much smaller than satchels but larger than laptop bags. You can find many different styles and materials of satchel shoulder straps with zippers. Some of the cheaper brands may not have all the zippers and compartments that you would want and some of them may not have all the compartments you need. You can usually find a good quality leather satchel or messenger bag that will suit your needs.
