    im really liking the tumi leather ones, and i saw them onsale somewhere cant remember right now, but they look really classy yet practical, like this one http://www.tumi.com/backpacks_messen...90170#Features what do you guys think?

    I like it. Simple, practical, looks nice. However, do you realize how ridiculously small it is? You'll probably be able to fit a binder, a textbook, and an ultraportable laptop at most. At $445 I hope the sale is at least 50% off...

    Have you considered a messenger bag? I personally much prefer their styles over backpacks, plus they are easier to get in and out of on the move.

    Quality to price ratio on Tumi products is very good, but get something that looks a little better.

    Imo Tumi is alright for the price, but nothing special. If anything I would say it is slightly overpriced compared to equal quality items from other similar brands. Plus most of their items are very very bland.

    I'm thinking the blandness adds to the simplicity and overall look and design to Tumi bags...however I myself prefer something other than Tumi!

    So now that i've begun dressing much nicer i need to upgrade the rest of my things as well and ive decided that i need a new backpack as well, i want something leather that is very high quality, i would be using it everday for school, i was looking at this one: http://eluxury.com/estore/browse/pro...sp?id=11291624 idk what u guys think bout that one? but something that is nice and stylish to go with the nice outfits, i would love your guys input on this.

    thank you!!! [​IMG]


    Eek, that bag looks identical to the offerings you will see ominously displayed for sale on the pavements of tourist ghettos. Best avoided.

    If you want something stylish, go for a messenger bag in full leather. Well chosen, they will go with pretty much anything you decide to wear. Those Tumi ones linked below look a step in the right direction.

    Go on superfuture and ask where to get Le Mem backpacks [​IMG]


    But seriously, if you want a regular backpack with no branding in different colors:
    http://store.americanapparel.net/rsanc501.html No one is going to pretend it's amazing quality but they have their appeal.

    I have the Tumi Canyon messenger bag and I really like it. Its just big enough for the essentials: my 12" iBook, power adapters for it and my phone, a book, passport wallet, sunglasses case and a few pens and odds and ends. The leather is gorgeous, soft and buttery, and the interior blue lining is very nice.

    If you need to carry more than what I've described above, this is the wrong bag for you. I like it because I'm working on carrying less stuff around, and I've discovered that however much space I have, I usually end up filling it, so the small bag helps me stay "minimalist." If it doesn't fit in the bag, I must not need it that badly.
