    I searched the threads and looked through all the backpacks and wondering if you would provide me with a few more good recommendations for backpacks.

    I have a 3 year old North Face optimus and I'm looking to replace it seeing as I'm starting college in a couple weeks. I plan on putting my MBP in a incase sleeve and then inside of the backpack..

    I just go the North Face RECON backpack, and with my 15"uMBP in a neoprene sleeve, it's a perfect fit

    well I, like you, and heading off to college in the fall (freshmen year.....GULP) and the way i see it im not gonna need to have my backpack loaded with stuff. I'm gonna be a music ed major so i wont have many texts (from what i've been told) but even when i do have them im just gonna carry them in my hands. im just gonna throw a notepad, notebook, planner, and something to write with in my bag along with the macbook. If i had to guess though, I would say that i could probably get a couple 1.5" binders in it and or a sizable text book as well

    Hey guys,

    I just got done with my first year in college. I bought the Ogio Politan bag and I LOVE IT!

    Seriously. You can fit your laptop in the cushioned back opeing and 4 or 5 books, etc in the big opening. There are also a lot of other small pockets, even a pocket with the hole for headphones to go through.

    I totally recommend the Ogio Politan. It's amazing.

    I'm looking into the NorthFace Mentor backpack. I have the Jester by North Face and this will be my second year with that. I love north face products.
