Leather Book Bags for College 2021

College students need a bag that will survive their busy schedule and have plenty of space for everything they need while showing off their personality. With that being said, you don’t have to have a traditional school bag weighing down on your shoulders.

While MANCINI Leather has many laptop backpack options, the bags we have featured in this post are excellent alternatives for students who want to stand out.  From briefcases to rolling catalog cases to messenger bags, we have something for everyone.

Whether you need a new bag for the upcoming semester or want to purchase one as a gift, consider these genuine leather book bags for college.

Messenger Bag

This vintage leather messenger bag of our Buffalo collection is rugged and suitable for the urban lifestyle. Made from sleek top-grain oily waxy Buffalo leather, the shoulder strap is adjustable to suit everyone’s preferences.


This bag is functional for the college student because it comes with a front pocket that protects their devices with RFID wave-blocking technology. The padded laptop sleeve protects laptops of up to 15″,  as well as tablets. If you have too many books to pack, you can balance out the weight by using the inner compartment and the rear pocket. On days where you pack a lunch, you can attach it to your leather bag for convenience.

Rolling Laptop Bag

Here, we have featured a rolling laptop bag from our Vanizia collection that would make an excellent companion for any business or law student’s daily tasks.


Also called a catalog case, it’s made of full grain leather. It embodies the classic look of a briefcase with the contemporary need for wheels when college students travel for long periods. This added convenience saves young men and women from experiencing back or shoulder pain.

On days where you don’t need your laptop or tablet, you can remove the padded laptop sleeve to provide more room for textbooks, notebooks, and folders. The front organizer houses your writing tools, notepads, phone, and any other small essentials, so you can find them with ease. If everything doesn’t fit, you can use the two side pockets.

Leather Briefcase

From our Signature collection is this stunning top-grain leather briefcase complete with an inner organizer for your college books and a laptop compartment that will keep your 14-inch laptop safe. For more space, there’s a zippered rear compartment.

Leather Briefcase

It comes with a detachable shoulder strap, so you can quickly switch your bag from hand to shoulder as you travel. This briefcase is designed to keep your papers and folders crisp and standing upright. No college student wants to hand in a paper that they worked hard on only to have it wrinkled or torn on their way to school.
