    Here's the deal, I need a new backpack.

    The one I've been using for the last year and a half is clearly dead, there are massive holes in the bottom and the seams are ripping apart. I didn't expect a $6 backpack to last anyway.

    Which brings us back to the point of this thread. I need a new backpack (no messenger bags please, my shoulders are only so strong). I'm looking for something low-key (like a jansport super break), but I'm open to something new if it's absolutely awesome.

    I prefer smaller bags (again, I'm open to awesomeness), and don't want to spend more than $60. 12oz consumerism style arbiters: do your work.

    I had a 'backpack' thread before... and I found a great one!

    check www.mec.ca for some great packs.
    It's in canadian funds too... so think cheap.
    Oh... Eastpack has a durable rep too.

    I cant find that old thread with the new search tool :(

    Supreme dropped some new backpacks again this season. The quality of their bags is always nice. I'd also look at Head Porter (from Japan) if you can afford it. You can find it in NYC above Stussy in Soho.

    A lot of skate companies make fresh bags.

    I'm rocking a black es bag. It looks good and it's pretty functional. Mine ran me 50 bucks though.

    Any thoughts on this bag from anyone? (sorry raven, $200 was too much for a backpack):

    damn, that shit is ugly though.
    if all you want is functional, hook it up. if im gonna be wearing some shit though, i want it to atleast not look like shit.
    i dont know why you think messenger bags would hurt your shoulder. if you wear it right, the bulk of the weight is on your back, not your shoulder.

    have you thought about one of those carts like the chinese women carry groceries in?

    It comes in black, which isn't that bad. However, I'll probably just get one of these:

  12. I would kill for a supreme back pack, only one place in the uk gets them at there shut at the moment, that is even if I could A afford the horrendous mark up and B get there before the resellers, head porter are nice I have an hp wallet but that’s all I could afford…I have a nice big north face courier bag I use most of the time, also got a gravis vs rostarr bag which look cool but is actually pretty crap, gravis do some nice bags though…
