Review: Travel Bags for Men from GRAMS28


The ‘Man Bag’ – they all need one but it can be difficult to find a useful travel bag that isn’t just a rucksack with everything thrown in.

When I was introduced to the Essential Organizer line from GRAMS28 I knew we needed many, if not all, of their products in our life.

AD | I have been or could be if you click on a link in this post compensated via a cash payment, gift or something else of value for writing this post. See our full disclosure policy and privacy policy for more details.

My huband travels not only with us for holiday, but often for work too, so he needs bags that can be used for both. Man bags that mean he knows where everything is and things are easy to find, but are most definitely not a handbag.

GRAMS28 products are made from only the best quality full-grain leather from Italy, the craftsmanship and design of these products are unparalleled in the market, offering something not only beautiful but truly useful too.

We now have:

112 AirPods Pro Case

Stylish AirPods Pro Case, easy access to your AirPods charging port and wireless charger.

Slightly thicker than is ideal to fit in the bags we have from GRAMS28 too, but they do fit in. Great quality and hardy. You can have these personlised too which would make a great gift.

Having the airpods in different cases also means they are easy to identify when everyone around you has a pair.

The 109 Essential Case

The 109 Essential Case is the first bag in the GRAMS28 series. Created for everyday tech essentials like AirPods, a phone and keys, this case declutters pockets like no other. It’s a ‘man bag’ that doesn’t look like a handbag and is really really useful.

This is how ours looks after a month of use:

and the professional shot and video from which you can see how useful it is.

The newest version of the 109 comes with two-ring connectors, so you can easily attach a strap and carry the case as a sling. Making it the ultimate organizer for everyday essentials. It aims to keep your essentials all in one place, you can fit in your iPhone (size up to 15 Pro Max) and organize your AirPods, key, wallet, cards, Pen, and AirTag to the dedicated compartments. So you can rest easy knowing that everything is in the right place. 

What can it carry?

.Up to an iPhone 15 pro max size phone with a case
.108 Cardholder or wallet with a similar size
.AirPods / AirPods Pro with case
. Pen
.Charging cable

158 Travel Wallet Sling

We also have the 158 Travel Wallet Sling which is made to be your all-in-one, comprehensive travel carry companion. Functional and intentional organization for all of your travel essentials, you can quickly grab and go when you’re heading out.

A compact and portable bag, the 158 is universally compatible with all kinds of travelers, all while looking stylish and sophisticated. It’s a total hit.

This bag (currently being used without the strap which he in’t sure about) is grabbed and added to all bags for travelling and is full of wires and all manner of other ‘important things’ to be fair, just like my handbag…

This is how ours looks after a months almost daily use:

and the professional shot and video from which you can see how useful it is.
