Backpack-Fi - Page 2

post #16 of 236
I'm using an Eddie Bauer Vertical Messenger convertible to urban back pack for 79CAD.

Lots of pockets on the front cover:


Both sides have pockets for bottle or handgloves during winter.


Main compartment with two pockets inside:


Two kinds of pockets underneath the front cover, zip lock and velcro lock type:


Generous pockets for accessories such as passport calculator cards bank cheques pens and etc.


Most of all a padded laptop compartment:

They have good protections inside so you can easy take a laptop, if you like. I think they are pretty, with the style you say ^^.
the Simpak looks perfect... too bad it's not available stateside.

right now, i'm leaning toward the Dakine 101. good size, tons of well thought out pockets, and comes in non-offensive colors (e.g. black, brown).

I had a similar search for backpacks a while back and ended up choosing the Kelty Reverb



Its extremely light, has a laptop (14") sleeve and pretty durable.

Whatever you do don't buy a big backpack. Experience says that garbage tends to grow to absorb all the available space.

i got myself one of them, trying to find the b*stard things in the uk, but then excahnge rate was good just shiped one from the us. the 46 litre one co incides the max size airlines allow as hand luggage, saves me having to risk putting stuff in the hold and getting lost

maybe you try out Tatonka or Mammut or as previously mentioned Deuter

They all build stuff for outdoor activities but actually
they rock everyday life as well. Got a Tatonka bag for almost 12 years,
(everyday use) and not one zipper failed me.

Now I use this little beauty:

the Dakine 101 came in the mail, and it is really well made with all the pockets and sub-pockets and hidden pockets that i'm looking for. it really is a fantastic pack -- with one deal-breaker: it's too big.

so i'm sending the 101 back and ordering the Dakine Transfer:



it doesn't have quite as many cool pockets, but it still has a good amount, and at 1500 cubic inches (vs. the 101's 2000), it's much closer to what i'm looking for.

^Da Kine is very popular here in Hawaii. Nice bags, should serve you well. I much prefer the Transfer over the 101, good choice.

Check out Booq bags If you're looking for something to carry a laptop in, that's what those are specially designed for. Been using one for the past couple of years and I'm surprised how well it's holding up. Aside from getting a bit dirty (which I could just clean..) , there is absolutely no tearing, fraying, etc. Really sharp looking bags too and all sorts of styles.

i love Booq bags... or rather, i almost love them. in person, they are gigantic and heavy, almost with a sort of exoskeleton. way too bulky for use as a daypack around the city. not to mention, they're a little overpriced.

They're turtle bags. I don't seem to like them.

Just got this as a Christmas gift. Timbuk2 Metro Tote w/2-Way gear pouch. Perfect for my everyday commute, as my Backpack was just too big & bulky for daily use.
