Trunk

A Manly Lunch Bag

This post originally appeared in the Art Of Manliness ‘Trunk’ – a collection of cool stuff we find while wandering the vast deserts of the world wide web.


Strangely enough, a question I’ve gotten several times is, “What’s a manly way to carry a lunch?”

Of course a man carries his lunch any way he damn well pleases. But I understand the need here. Guys are looking for something re-usable that’s not a cheesy-looking, plastic, Made in China thingie.

A big metal construction worker lunchbox is a classic option, if a little unwieldy.

But the No. 215 bag made by the Artifact Bag Co. fits the bill perfectly. It’s made with waxed canvas and copper rivets and closes with a leather strap. The bag costs $65.00 but it’s handmade in Omaha, Nebraska and after a lifetime of ditching the disposable paper sacks, you’ll have covered the cost.

Check out the No. 215 at the Artifact Bag Co. Comes in khaki and olive.
