i had a Jack Spade messenger bag about 8 or 9 years ago, back when they were only being sold at the Jack Spade shop in SoHo (yes, i'm that cool ).

i have to say, it was very poorly made, and began to fall apart within six months of daily use. in fact, i took the first one i bought back and they very kindly replaced it. but the second one also fell apart very quickly.

they seem to be a much bigger operation now, so i'm not sure whether build quality has improved.

KATA A44V Sensitivity V Backpack

It's really cool, is really small, and yet fits a lot, and I get complemented on it at least once a week (it's already been 2 years, too!). The two pockets into one function is amazingly...functional?

Here's a link to see what it looks like:

I have a dakine backpack thats been holding up for years. It still looks pretty good despite going just about everywhere with me. It has really big zippers which don't fail as much as the small ones do.

Osprey makes very fine backpacks, they're my favorite.

booq bags are quite pricey but they are bags that could last a life-time.

I found out the only place selling Jack Spade in the UK is Selfridges on Oxford Street. Not even one of the other 3 branches of Selfridges. Will go down on Tuesday, have a nose around. Via detour to the Apple store (always love it in there due to customer service)

Anyone own a Vaja messenger bag?

Still trying to find the *perfect* bag for me... which would be 13" notebook sized, but thick enough for said 13" notebook, and good few A4 notepads

Bought one!

Hit it up on Flickr: Jack Spade Nylon Tech Canvas Messenger Bag {Chocolate} - a set on Flickr

That's me done with bag buying now!

Are they really that durable? I thought My NF backpack would last about 3 years without any exterior damage, but there are already about 3 small holes. I do abuse my backpacks though...

I currently use (and have been for a while) the North Face Overhaul (2007 edition) as my day-to-day school backpack. The thing is a monster, it's really easy to carry heavy bookloads and other stuff in it and a damned shame they changed the look (I don't really like the new look).

I love my Oakley Kitchen sink, can fit a Mac book pro, a change of clothes, and a tone of other items including a wet towell underneath not affecting other items I. It's we deal pockets. $179 was worth it for me.
