Backpack Or Messenger Bag?

Sup HB..
I'm looking for a new bag for Sixth Form, I'm stuck between a Supreme Messenger, A Supreme Zebra Camo backpack, or the Herschel Little America Desert Camo...
What would you recommend?

Don't get a messenger bag if you're going to get a Supreme one

Sixth Form? 1st year I'm guessing.
I'd get the Herschel

Depends what youre using it for, if youre going to college and going to be carrying all those heavy ass textbooks, you better cop that bagpack b. Messengers take a toll on your shoulder after awhile, trust.

Sixth form in the UK? Go for a messenger bag. Post 16 education you're supposed to be a bit more mature, messenger bag coincides with that mentality of moving on from secondary school and backpacks. Supreme just defeats this purpose imo, messenger bag should be smart casual, which Supreme inherently is not. For God's sake don't get a Fred Perry one though, every chief is rocking one of those.

Depends on your budget but look around and you can find some decent ones. J.Crew, A.P.C, Filson.

You shouldn't be carrying too many books so utility wise should be perfect, but if you are then do as said above and go with a backpack for comfort.

Go for the Camo Herschel or Supreme Backpack. Most messenger bags aren't balanced correctly, and could hurt your back/shoulder. If you really want a messenger check out Chrome and Mission Workshop, they have some pretty dope bags.

*If you don't ride bikes, Backpacks are better cuz they're more comfortable and can handle heavier loads

Thanks so much for your opinion guys blushing I'll be carrying a lot of textbooks, 4/5 + a folder amongst other things.
I think I've decided to go for the backpack, rocked a messenger for a couple years now and everyone seems to have one at the moment - Fred Perry, no less :|

Haha, now one more thing:- The desert camo, or this one? http://www.ragerlife.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/herschel-supply-co-little-america-backpack-02-570x570.jpg

Kind of lost at the moment when it comes to bags, just joined the game smokeyface

Out of interest, anyone here from East London?
