Need a bag for college

<p>Hello, I will be going to college next year and looking for a bag for class. Something that fits my MBP 15" along with my books. I don't want anything too fancy and would be great if it fits within the natural colors range. Something clean and elegant. I will be majoring in Electrical Engineering, if that makes a difference. Oh, and I am a guy :).</p>

<p>get a Nike backpack from footlocker. thats what i would get, or go to walmart.</p>

<p>Ok i bought the same computer as you and I am going in to the same major too. I bought the North Face box shot. Its a laptop backpack that seems like it will hold the computer and anything else I want to, its not that big and seems pretty comfortable.</p>

<p>If you don't get a computer bag, I definitely recommend getting a laptop sleeve in addition to a bag. It'll keep the computer from getter scratched and add a bit of extra protection.</p>

<p>Check out STM bags, sold by Radtech in the US.</p>

<p>I just got a simple, two-pocket, black Columbia backpack. It carries a decent amount and isn't huge. I believe I found it at a sporting goods store.</p>

<p>I got a Swiss gear Laptop backback with two pockets at Target for $50. Great backpack. You should definitely check out Swissgear</p>

<p>I just bought the North Face Surge a few weeks ago, and it's really good. It also has very positive reviews all over the internet.</p>

<p>Thanks for the suggestions. I will definitely keep those brands in mind next time I go shopping. Though sadly there's no big department stores like target and walmart within driving distance of my house.</p>

<p>I am actually more interested in something unique instead of these full on backpacks with hundreds of departments. The last time I heard brands like North face and Columbia was when I did my ski trip shopping. I thought their products are aiming toward mountains climbers who carry their camps with them.</p>

<p>For some reason I am fond of colors like beige and khaki than black. I think something like this looks more casual than a typical backpack:</p>

<p>STM</a> Bags > MacBook bag > 15 inch > cargo medium laptop shoulder bag</p>

<p>I don't know if a shoulder bag would fit all my school supplies as during my high school days, I often find myself carrying more than 1 backpack to school.</p>
