So I'm starting college classes in a few weeks, and I'm looking to upgrade from my 2001 Columbia backpack. I've read through the backpack threads on here (there sure are a lot, sorry for one more), and I've narrowed down my list. Incase Heathered Incase Campus Booq Mamba Shift Ogio Newt II Ogio Newt IIS Banjo Brothers Metro My budget is roughly $170, and I need something that protects my computer, has quality craftsmanship, quality material, is well designed, and long lasting. That being said, after all the reviews I've read on the different bags, I have a few outstanding questions about specific bags. I hoping that if anyone here has ever seen/used/owned one of the bags they can help me out. Incase: Are the materials and craftsmanship high quality? Will they last for two years or ten? Also, does the main compartment have enough capacity for some textbooks? Booq: The booq bag is definitely my favorite, and I would buy it in a heartbeat if I knew that it had enough internal space for a handful of textbooks along with my computer. Ogio: I like the look of the two Newt bags, but I'm wondering if there's a significant difference regarding capacity. They put a binder and some notebooks in the main compartment in the video, but it didn't look like there was much room after that. Banjo Brothers: Ok, I realize that most of you have probably never heard of them, so I don't really expect anyone to be helpful with this one lol, but it's made with solid materials (waterproof) and quality craftsmanship, so on the list it goes. If anyone has any other ideas, there are a few more factors that I take into consideration. I'm female, so I don't want something that's too large. Also, the design needs to be as such that I can easily secure the zippers with a few zipper locks (http://www.corporatetravelsafety.com/catalog/lock-purse-security-clip-p-951.html). Lots of little pockets on the exterior are cool in theory, but if I can't keep them secure then they aren't exactly useful on campus. Thanks for looking!
