Can't decide on the Indigo or the Organic joshu+vela Backpack.. I wear a shit ton of navy so I'm thinking the Organic would be better.. If anyone happens to own one can you comment on the quality please? Thanks

Since they both are muted colours they are equally versatile and allow for them to be paired with almost any outfit. Seeing as you wear a lot of navy I would say go with the cream/off-white version so you don't look like everything on you is matching.

I read and article that @lachyzee linked to in an earlier post about a review a guy did on the white canvas Makr bag and the guy believed that he enjoyed his white bag more cause of the various stains it got that made the bag more personal. Saying that if you don't want stains to be too pronounced then go for the navy version.

Question: Why are higher-end bag makers omitting bottle pockets on their bags? I realize the traditional bottle holders are made using mesh and elastic which decrease the appeal of a bag to people looking at that end of the market, but couldn't they design their own version of holders since a holder is a handy thing to have. For example, Makr makes a beautifully crafted bag and what they did was use some of the canvas to make bottle holders that look great on the bag without comprising the look of the bag.

When a backpack is made without one of its most key parts it is more of a fashion accessory than a student's commodity to me.

When was a bottle carrier a 'key part' of a bag?

It may seem like a trivial thing to others, but I carry a bottle of water and a coffee mug everyday to my classes and not having bottle pockets are a key part of a backpack to me. I will admit that post is quite funny reading it now.

I really like my custom Timbuk2 messenger bag, it has a laptop sleeve built in, useful pockets, waterproof liner, and easier access to all my stuff. i have had it for 2 years now and it has been around the world with me and through a motorcycle crash, its still going strong.

 

using the customizer on their website you can make a bag that no one else will have. they also offer custom backpacks but those dont look as good as the messengers imo. just be sure to buy a strap pad with it.
