    I really need a new bag for school. I'll be starting my freshmen year and i want it to last most of the rest of high school.

    Does anybody know any quality bags that look really good and go with pretty much anything you are wearing? I really don't know what to look for.

    I'm also not willing to spend more than about $50 or $60.

    They make quality bags and have excellent customer service. I'm very happy with mine.

    They are a bit expensive (nearing your price limit or exceeding it a little), but they are quality backpacks/bags that last a long time.

    I've had a Timbuk2 bag forever and it's in great shape still. Thumbs up.

    same here. timbuk2 medium in solid black.
    there soooo strong and durable. having the raised laptop pouch is nice to keep the laptop safe.
    i think there worth the cash.

    This bag is just for my school books and supplies, no laptop.

    I've had the same North Face backpack for about five years. They might meet your budget cap or go slightly over, but they're worth it.

    I have the Yavapai model right now, but any of them are good and made to last several years.

    That's REALLY nice, but there is no option for a white one:(


    I don't think you looked at my price limitation:p

    I wouldn't necessarily look for just that model. All of them are good, and you can probably find a white one. I've been buying North Face products for a long time, and they're always high quality.

    I've been using my black North Face school bag since freshmen year and I am going to use it all throughout college as well :D

    It still looks like brand new.

    I love BooqBags. They're in the brenthaven pricing range, but I've had mine for 2 1/2 years and haven't had any issues with it whatsoever. Looks and functions just as well as the day I got it.

    OGIO and DAKINE both make pretty good backpacks in the price range you're looking at.
