New backpack/bag/etc. for school

Any recommendations?
I want something that looks good, doesn't have to be a backpack, I saw a bowling bag style fred perry bag that i liked at plenty, but where else do they have some nice men's bags?

Decent size and under $150 preferably

Even though they're backpacks, Dakine ones are pretty nice, and can take a beating while holding a lot since most are hiker/skater bags. Most go for around 65-100 bucks. I'd get one, but I've already got a reliable one that's lasted me a few years now.

However, after looking over the Fred Perry website, I'm not sure if it's your kind of taste.

My friend just got one at Lacoste, we saw the ones at Plenty... and felt that the Lacoste one was worth it + looked way better. It was 125$ without tax and it was the last one at Lacoste Downtown but there was the same one at that shoe store on robson...

I like "The North Face" packs. They're pretty rugged and the designs are decent. You can find a wide variety of packs at ECO Outdoor Sports beside Futureshop in downtown.

I don't think i really want a utilitarian backpack though, LOL I don't care about practicality that much (note the Z31 2 seater...)
The design/style is more important, I mean as long as it doesn't use shitty straps that tear after 6 months i'm fine, The quiksilver backpack i've been using for a while looks like the day i bought it, but don't really like it cause it's really LB

i vote for north face in general, they make good stuff

I got a Dakine backpack two weeks ago or so. The one before this was similar and lasted me about 4 years I think. Great quality.

It broke cause I carried it by the zippers full a couple times haha.

I'm looking to either a Dakine or North Face since both brands have good bags in my price range (50-80 bucks). Anyone know any good stores to find them besides common stores like West 49, Sport Chek/Coast Mountain etc.?

What do you plan on carrying in the bag? Lots of books/laptop/binders/clipboard etc?

In my final year of SFU, I grabbed me a nice Filson bag while I was in Seattle because it only needed to carry one book and one binder.

http://www.filson.com/product/index....entPage=family

This is a very durable long lasting bag...I continue to use it to this day. I love the construction and I'm confident it will last me at least 5 years of continous use.
