So I'm looking for a good backpack to carry my books and laptop. It is really easy to pick up an Incase backpack, but I have one and they are mad played out.

Anyone got a good suggestion? Need something built for carrying books and decently strong. Laptop sleeve is a plus also. Thanks!

This brand makes some pretty dope stuff:

www.wherehouse.co.kr/html/newpage.html?code=15

T-Level out of Korea. I've had my messenger for 2 years. Durable as hell.

They ship international too.

Another up-and-coming brand is Herschel Supply Co.

www.herschelsupply.com/studio.html

They make some classic styles but as far as durability I can't speak too much on. More for looks than something like T-Level.. yet cheaper.

Peace!

Herschel is awesome. Very simple, practical and classic designs with outstanding quality. Highly recommended.

I use a Freshjive backpack from probably two years back. It's huge but it's a tank. Great for lugging around textbooks, laptops and whatever else you have. Don't know if they make them still since the company did a 180


would u like some drugs for ur existentialism?

-laptop sleeve
-enough space for 2-3 textbooks and papers
-smaller pockets for mouse, charger, iPod, etc.

That's pretty much all I need. I have a nice nylon backpack (not sure what kind its called, but it's the kind used for mountainclimbing). Also can hold like 3 water bottles.

Can't go wrong with NorthFace backpacks..Fits my laptop, 2-4 textbooks, charger, & mouse. Personally when shopping for a backpack, "Played out" or not shouldn't really be taken into consideration, you buy it for the comfort, space, and whatnot.

You might as well go to Walmart and get a $20.00 back-pack with a laptop sleeve. Most bookpacks come with them now and a nice design smile

you people are boring with those recommendation. SCHOOL BACKPACKS requires good organization INSIDE meaning pencil holders, pockets, zippered pockets, dividers inside the backpack. Herschel is just like jansport. i pocket and 1 room for everything else. Not a good SCHOOL backpack.

Just order online, it ships from Calgary, so no long wait or duties. Unless you want to check the quality/feel or something then I don't know.

I just got a red Study today, it's not superb quality, but I'm satisfied and it will last long enough. The price is pretty phenomenal too, so take that as another plus!

What do y'all think about this:

OR

compare.ebay.com/like/160493364624?ltyp=AllFixedPriceItemTypes&var=sbar&rvr_id=160681639824&crlp=1_263602_304662&UA=%3F*S%3F&GUID=ff112a2c12b0a0aa1591b0c1ffa3e2d3&itemid=160493364624&ff4=263602_304662

Second one seems much to small to me.

Ive been rocking a Gravis backpack. Its convenient cause its got a lot of pockets/a laptop compartment which is important for a college kid.
