8 lightweight leather bags For 2021!

Lightweight Leather Bags

Funny it is when we see humans can attach myths with anything under the sun. Leather bags are also not left out. 

I get that, carrying bags can be tiresome and painful but this happens if it is not worn properly. We certainly have a choice when it comes to buying leather bags, some of the features are - style, durability, cost, size, color, etc. However, a large section of customers has the “weight of the bag” on top of their checklist. 

Below are few comments by fellow customers about what they feel about the weight of leather bags:

“I find I don't use my leather ones as often because of the weight. I walk a couple of miles a day so lugging a heavy bag for style purposes doesn't work.”

“I don't think that leather necessarily means that it is heavier. There are nice leather bags that are not heavier than the similar bags in non-leather.”

“I love the quality of leather bags but often find them heavy too.”

What I can sense is a mixed feeling about that. So, here I will be bursting this myth bubble for all of you.

See, I believe it is conditional—- If you don't hold your whole life in your bag and/or travel by foot/train, the weight of the leather is unimportant. If you travel or walk short distances with just "purse" items (wallet, keys, contacts, a bit of makeup for touch-ups, prescriptions, etc.), you're obviously not bringing anything to affect your spine. Since we are all slightly asymmetrical down the centerline, and we usually bear our bags on our non-dominant side, which is the less athletic side anyway, it helps it out.

However, if you bring a laptop, books, your lunch, a big water bottle, a change of shoes, extra layers of clothes, your shopping, and so on, and commute for a longer trip, I believe it is necessary to search for bag types that redistribute the weight equally, such as crossbodies, messengers, and backpacks.

Yes, leather adds weight, but it also protects weight more because it is heavier, more structured, and longer-lasting. 

NO, I wouldn't want to wear a big leather knapsack full of books, but a leather messenger packed with books may be more convenient because the leather carries the weight and you're not poked by book corners.

Leather bags aren't particularly heavy. In reality, they go through a tanning phase, which gives them a soft touch and a lightweight. Most celebrities choose leather backpacks because they are lightweight and they have a lot of things to haul around the globe, which already weigh a lot. If you come across a heavy leather bag, my friend, it is not a real leather bag. Be careful, cause, that hurts!

Conditions for measuring Leather Weight.

The weight of a leather hide varies greatly. Thick leather weighs more than thin leather. Dry leather is lighter than well-oiled leather. The weight of compressed leather is greater than that of very soft leather with loose fibers and many air pockets in the fabric structure.

However, when reducing the weight of the leather, the previous durability and consistency properties, especially the leather's reduced flammability and fire retardancy, must be preserved.

Tanneries benefit from weight loss as well. Less wastewater is produced during the manufacturing process, and fewer chemicals are used in the tanning process.

Since the weight of leather varies with humidity, it must be calculated at regulated air humidity to achieve comprehensible comparative values.

Sources of Lightweight Leather

  1. Calf-Skin- Calfskin is used to create a high-quality, visually appealing leather with a smooth, fine feel. Calfskin has a glossy surface that is thick, lightweight, and resistant to abrasion. Calfskin develops a high luster with use and is used to make small leather products.

  2. Goat Skin- Goatskin leather is a low-cost, sturdy, and long-lasting leather with a fine grain. Goatskin is a lightweight, comfortable, supple, durable, and water-resistant leather that is significantly smoother and stronger than cow leather. Kidskin is a very soft leather made from a young goat's fur.

  3. Sheep Skin- Leathers made from sheep and lambskins are exceptionally smooth, convenient, and pliable. The finely-grained leather has a buttery feel and is thin and supple. Sheep leather is lightweight, fragile, and it absorbs moisture well.
