Top 5 Bags For Uni From Zatchels

Heading to uni for the first time or returning for another semester? You may be wondering “what bag should I use for uni?”. When you’re running between the library, lectures, coffee shop (and the pub of course!), you want to be able to transport all your belongings comfortably. In order to help you find the perfect choice, we’ve selected our top 5 bags for uni from the Zatchels collection. From satchels to backpacks, these are our ultimate uni must-haves:

Classic Handmade Leather Satchel

Sometimes classic is best, and this is certainly the case when it comes to our handmade leather satchels. Handcrafted using fine quality leather, this timeless satchel is available in a range of colours to suit your individual style, all finished with sleek cable stitching and silver nickel buckles. One of the major benefits of our satchels is that they also double up as great laptop bags for uni, making sure valuables are kept secure on your commute in. Our largest 16 inch satchel is able to accommodate laptops and tablets up to 15 inches in size. The satchel can be worn cross body, on the shoulder, carried as a clutch, or as a backpack by adding backpack straps to your order.

City Backpack

Leather backpacks also make great bags for uni, providing comfort and functionality, whilst still looking good in the process! The city backpack features a contemporary design with adjustable shoulder straps, that enable you to wear the bag on the shoulder as well as in backpack mode. Offering plenty of opportunities for personalisation, you can choose to add magnetic fastenings rather than the traditional buckles and add your choice of engraving. We can also create your handmade leather backpack in a custom colour if you can’t find what you’re looking for on the website. Although compact in design, our backpacks can carry laptops up to 12 inches in size (or up to 10 inches if you choose the small version).

Handmade Leather Tote Bag

When looking for the best bags for uni, size and capacity are important considerations to make. In other words, you need a bag that’s large enough to throw all the essentials into - we’re talking laptops, phone, books, snacks and more. That’s why our leather tote bag is one of our best bags for uni. This sophisticated bag features a spacious inner compartment, and is secured using a magnetic closure at the top. Comfortable leather grab handles allow you to carry the bag to the side or place it over your shoulder - whatever you find most practical! Highly versatile, this is a great choice for uni life, doubling up as a shopper, or evening bag when dressed up with a formal outfit.

Handmade Leather Folio Case

The Zatchels leather folio case is perfect for use alongside our other bags for uni, or as a practical accessory in its own right. Available in 2 sizes (9.92 Inches / 7.3Inches or 14.65 Inches / 10.44 Inches), the folio case can fit comfortably inside larger bags enabling you to keep valuables or electronics separate from your other belongings. This is really useful for staying organised on busy days! The small folio case can carry tablets up to 9 inches in size, whilst the large size can carry laptops up to 13 inches in size. Featuring an accented detachable hand strap, the folio case can also be carried separately on its own (doubling up as a sleek clutch bag for evening occasions!).

Handmade Leather Shopper

We couldn’t complete our list of the best bags for uni without mentioning our handmade leather shopper. Perfect for carrying around the essentials in comfort and style, a secure inside pocket is ideal for keeping your wallet and other valuables safe, whilst the bag can be securely fastened using the magnetic closure. Offering plenty of space to carry a laptop, tablet and books etc. this versatile shopper is just as perfect for commuting to the library as it is for heading out for a few drinks. Choose from brighter colours like pastel baby blue and rose quartz, or stick with the classics like chestnut and iced coffee.
