I've been using an MEC Adventurer backpack for a few years now, still doing pretty fine.

Mine is in the greenish color.

Backcountry Edge is having a sale and if you sign up for their EDGE program (mailing list) get another 12% off. I ordered a Kelty Redwing 3100 (2008 model) for $60 delivered. I think the original MSRP was $120. Now I am just waiting for fall.

You know, I can't get that enough, and yes, it's way too big. I'm sort of a slacker though and it lets me carry around all of my books and work to and from school every day instead of leaving my stuff either at home or in my locker and taking it out "as necessary" :P

I love it for that.

i'm so happy to see this thread still lives.

i'm still loving my Dakine one year later, and actually, i'm now looking for a laptop messenger bag for work. really, the "laptop" part is secondary, but it'd be nice to be able to slip mine in and out with ease ( ).

right now, i'm considering the Waterfield Muzetto:



it's a little spendy at $240-$260, but it's for work, and i like to look good for the "clients."

my current bag is a little number from Germany (Jost is the company), but only one shop in the city carries them, and they only have one model which i don't really dig.

I recently replaced my 11 year old REI rain jacket, but only because I shrank a few sizes recently () and it was too big. It survived eight years of almost daily wear in Oregon's rainstorms and I'm keeping it in the closet to lend out.
I'm also an REI customer....their Flash 65 pack is what I use on my backpacking trips. Inexpensive, big, comfortable and durable. I have a friend who uses one of their daypacks to great success as well...

Are swissgear bags any good ? Do they fall apart etc ? I see some nice ones for 30-40 dollars on Ebay.

I am rocking this guy right now, Blackhawk Patrol Pack.



IMO, for a real heavy duty pack, nothing beats military spec. My last pack was Israeli military issue, lasted me 12 years, and at least 200 trips inside and between a dozen countries. Hopefully, this one will put up the same show.

No one has mentioned Chrome bags yet...they make me drool I want one bad.



The chrome seatbelt strap is what I love about them.



Also I would like to say that anyone looking for a moderately priced bag might want to look at Ogio. I have had an Ogio bag for a few years and it still looks band new. They are a local company for me also so that makes it extra nice.
