Because I’m a creature of habit, I’ve been carrying the same knapsack ever my second year of college. It’s basically a nondescript black thing with straps but considering how long I’ve had it (since 2001), how much I’ve carried in it (several textbooks/costume changes) and how much I paid for it ($10!), it has certainly served me well.
However, now that I’m getting older and could possibly land a job where I’d have to look professional (my current gig allows me to wear whatever I want), I’m starting to think that hauling around ratty old knappy just isn’t going to cut it anymore.
So, I figured I would open this one up to the reading audience for some ideas. I’ve started browsing the web to see what is out there and I have one contender so far . . .
but I’m definitely open to suggestion. My only criteria are:
1) that it not be too flimsy.
2) that it have a decent shoulder support.
3) that it is sizable enough that I could fit a small lunch, book, touchup makeup kit and glasses into it.
4) that whoever makes it ships to Canada.
Getting a new bag is on my list of 101 things, so if you can help me get started by making a suggestion in the comment section below, it would be much appreciated. 🙂
