What to Keep in Mind About Shoulder Bags

Table: Key Considerations For Selecting Shoulder Bags


Key Considerations



  • Look for straps that can be adjusted to fit your body comfortably and accommodate various wearing styles (e.g., shoulder, crossbody etc.)


  • Padded or wider straps can distribute weight more evenly to reduce shoulder strain.


  • Ensure the straps are securely attached to the bag and made of strong materials to handle the weight of your belongings.


  • Consider the strap and how it complements the bag's overall aesthetic.



  • High-quality materials like full-grain leather, nylon, or canvas ensure resilience and longevity.
  • Examples of Andar bags made with canvas include The Shopper and The Penny.


  • The material contributes significantly to the bag's look and feel, affecting its versatility and suitability for various occasions.


  • Consider how easy the material is to clean and maintain.
  • Leather is relatively easy to clean using our Andar leather care kit and ages beautifully.


  • Eco-friendly materials or responsibly sourced leather such as Saguaro cactus, which is vegan-friendly, can be important for people concerned with environmental impact.
  • An example of Andar bags made with Saguaro cactus is The Indie, which is an excellent leather travel fanny pack.


When selecting the best shoulder bag, the strap plays a pivotal role in ensuring comfort and convenience.

At Andar, our American made leather bags feature adjustable straps that allow you to find the perfect fit for your body. This ensures that the bag sits comfortably on your shoulder without slipping or causing discomfort.
