My brother is quadriplegic and doesn't use a rolly bag. Nobody should.

North face is the best backpack I've ever owned. Expensive as shit but I had one I used daily for 8+ years and nothing ever went wrong with it. I'd still be using it if it wasn't stolen by a crackhead.

I used Eddie Bauer backpacks in high school...they only lasted a year each but the return policy is irreproachable. (They'll replace any bag with the current equivalent, no matter how old, if something tears or breaks.)

Switched to North Face in UG and the only reason I bought new ones was because I wanted a new one. I'm almost 9 years out of UG now and I still have a couple of my UG-era TNF packs in perfect condition aside from a little dirt. No laptop bag, though, so I'll be getting a new one for LS. Possibly: http://www.thenorthface.com/catalog/sc- ... surge.html, if it's big enough to hold books+laptop.

Since when does the average law student have $500 to spend on a bag?

May buy one of these. Only real important thing to me is that my bag be waterproof. I thought mine was until I walked home in the rain and my laptop had been sitting in a small puddle of water :|

You looking for something that's quasi-professional or a more traditional backpack?

In law school, I used a massive travel backpack because I liked to be able to lug around all my books at once.

However for work, my company provided a fairly nice laptop bag that's essentially a saddlebag. It has both backpack straps and shoulderstraps.

It's nice because while I find backpacks much more comfortable than the shoulderstraps on briefcases, I feel a bit silly walking into a client meeting with a backpack on like I'm a 19 year old college student. This way I can get both.

It's pretty much this:

Just as an FYI, the North Face backpacks that say they hold "most 15'" laptops" will fit a 15.6 laptop. Or at least mine does. I know it's a pain to find a backpack to hold that size.
