I’m willing to bet you’re more than ready to pack up and hit the road again, right? Perhaps you think you’ve got your men’s style essentials all figured out, but let me be the first to tell you that your packing list isn’t complete without the right gear in which to haul, well, the rest of your gear. That’s where Satchel & Page enters the equation, makers of some of the best everyday carry gear and accessories on the market. The brand itself was inspired by founder Daniel Ralsky’s grandfather and the map case he carried through World War II (head here for a full Satchel & Page review). It’s a remarkable origin story that leads to finely crafted, durable and rugged leather goods with purpose. These are pieces to be invested in and used for years, no doubt about it. To get you started before you hit the road, check out my top picks below from Satchel & Page.
Satchel & Page Gladstone Leather Weekender — $635
Invest in the very best with this durable, handsome leather weekender bag, the kind that gets better with age. Lined with soft tobacco suede, it’s got plenty of carrying capacity thanks to three internal pockets (one zippered). Satchel & Page calls this a “workhorse of a weekend bag,” and it’s certainly tough to argue that.
Satchel & Page 4-Way Briefcase — $435
To complement your Satchel & Page weekender, consider this multi-faceted briefcase that’s got plenty of different uses going for it. Carry it on your shoulder with the handy strap, haul it by the handles, team it with a rolling suitcase or wear it as a backpack. Note that it’s even got a laptop compartment. It’s your new go-to carry-on bag.
Satchel & Page Carryall — $625
You see, Satchel & Page really does it all, and the same approach to care and craftsmanship extends to this hard-wearing, handsome carryall bag. It features a handy quick-grab pocket and a laptop compartment, plus a durable finish thanks to antique brass hardware.
Satchel & Page Padfolio — $200
No packing list is complete without the right, well-designed and well-made everyday carry gear, and yet again, Satchel & Page excels with its lineup of small carry goods. Made to hold a letter pad and an iPad Pro, and featuring business card slots and a pen slot, it’s an effective and handy way to haul only the essentials to your next meeting.
Satchel & Page Bomber Jacket — $675
Is this technically an everyday carry essential? Not quite, but it’s worth noting that this heirloom brand makes a handsome, heritage-worthy leather jacket, one of the coolest leather jackets for men on the market. Wear it with pride, and note that you can also remove the classic shearling wool collar.
Hopefully, these stylish and extremely well-crafted everyday carry picks are enough to inspire you to pack up in style and hit the road. It’s a credit to Satchel & Page that you can get everything from a stylish leather portfolio to one of the coolest leather jackets for men, and it’s also a credit to the brand that each of these gear picks are going to last a long, long time.
