Since you don't want a man purse I am presuming you plan to use it solely for books while at school. In that case look at Filson. Their slimmer shoulder bags are under $200, the wider ones that would be great for carrying textbooks and maybe even a laptop are between 2-300.

Let's just say I wouldn't look twice if I saw a woman using one...

the filson ones are nice, but i think im leaning towards this BR bag, its a bit cheaper too. originally i was thinking id like all leather, but it might be too feminine.. what u guys think of this one ?

i think excessive metal hardware suggests feminine. especially on that "Tod Bag"

I've been meaning to get one but right now I just want one bag that is a beater bag for my laptop etc as I am constantly on the road lately.
