    Question is in the title,

    what would be the best backpack for a college student needing a strong, fairly large and professional, good looking backpack for under £150?

    I've been looking at some bags:

    Thule Crossover 32/25L (not a fan of the light blue colour scheme)
    Everki Titan (way too big for my needs)
    Incase Icon (costs £190 in the UK, too expensive)
    Ogio Renegade (very heavy apparently)

    I may consider the Incase Icon Slim, as long as it has enough space, or maybe take a look at the Thule Crossover 25L, or even other tech backpacks like the Energi Tylt+... What about North Face tech-wise? Very much confused as to what to purchase.

    Anyone have any experiences with their "perfect" backpack? Post below, thanks :)

    - Kevin

    I use a Herschel little America bag for uni to carry my mbp, iPad, chargers, note pads, folders and lunch in. Works great for me. Mine isn't the plus version that Apple supplies which I think comes with extra pockets iirc.
    The straps are well padded too, so it is comfortable even when heavy.
    I've had it from jan 14 and it's been faultless and still looks new

    I love my Eddie Bauer backpack. I don't think they make mine anymore, but anything you get from them will be great. It's huge with a 15" laptop pocket. I can fit 4 books and some binders in it and I've had mine for 8 years and it still works fine. It looks a little l worn, but has no rips or tears. It usually holds between 15 and 20 pounds of stuff.

    But they're not cheap. I got mine at Target for $50 on sale.
