I hesitate to use the word "book bag" because that conjures up the image of Jansports, which arn't exactly what I have in mind.

I am going to be a senior in high school this year and would love to find a durable bag that is versatile enough that I can use it every day. I was also thinking that maybe I could get one style bag in two colors to match (or at least coordinate with) what I am wearing that day.

My budget isn't really limited, but under $200 would be great.

Does anyone have any ideas about what would work best?

thanks!

ooh me too! i was just thinking about this-- does anyone know of a link to any websites or anything that have some super cute "school bags" (i'm in college.. wooo)?? seeing as how i make pennies at my horrible job, something in the neighborhood of $50 would be super.

and again, not into those jansport backpacks thanks a million

Le Sportsac?

Lots and lots of options!
They're somewhere in the neighboorhood of $74 and have a monograming option but duribility is iffy.

....

Not to be rude but why does something you're gonna put books in and throw around have to be stylish?

Since you don't want Jansport, just go to Footlocker or Finishline. Nike and Adidas galore.

You can get them at discount for about $200. Such as Ebay as I've seen before.

I think that a really great suede messenger bag would last you your senior year and well into your college years too.

Try looking at back to school sales at Macy's or the like.

Apparently I'm not supposed to link to eBay but anyways they do have authentic Prada messengers. I have seen Goyard duffle bags on there as well.

Of course not everything is authentic but some items are.

I'd look into something from Tumi. Very durable.
