So my backpack from highschool is now finally mostly broken (surprised it lasted this long). So I need a replacement and I figured hey these guys are pretty heavy students, I bet they have some good recs. I need something that can carry about 3 medium sized text books, a binder and some notebooks and not feel bulky and stuffed. I rarely if ever carry my laptop but I'd like to be able to fit a 15" laptop in there. Something a bit durable though I only have about 2 years or so left ( assuming I dont go to grad school) Most of all, the important thing is price. I'm sure you guys know whats reasonable to a student, especially a non-working one. p.s. On a sidenote, if anyone has similar recommendations for some sort of toolbox, that would be great too. Something that can hold a few tools for an EE and most importantly, something that can store and organize a bunch of various components. Resistors, Caps, Transistors, ICs, etc.
