    I'm not saying Topo is bad, just I haven't heard of them. Last trek I did was in Nepal last November but I haven't really followed the gear stuff in a while. Dana Design should be almost impossible to find since they weren't that big to start with but once the new Macbook Air comes out I'll finally be able to use that pack again. Damn heavy and huge 16' laptops.

    I apologize if what I wrote came off as rude, I didn't mean it to sound that way [​IMG]

    In all fairness, not all of us who use briefcases on campus are wannabe Gordon Gecko, Jim Cramer-watching, ill-fitting suit wearing wannabe cretins. A briefcase is a practical implement for carrying a small quantity of books. For those who don't want a briefcase, anything leather is good. If one likes backpacks, fine. But why stick to the shitty nylon one you bought at Target during senior year? Get a leather one. A trendier person probably could rock a time-worn but sturdy portfolio from ebay. I look at my briefcase as upgrading to leather goods rather than affecting the appearance of a businessman.

    Lol at guys saying a Porter looks 'business like'. Hahaha, I go to class with gym shorts on with mine. Sorry if I'm putting on too hard of a business front with that aesthetic Transistor.

    Well, now my wallet's going to have a take a hit for a Duluth Scout.

    Why not save the 'backpacks are for kids' comments for the manbag thread?

    Didn't mean to appear as if were rude. You weren't. There are a few backpacks threads you can look at.
