    I've just been using a Dakine Terminal since I started commuting about a year and a half ago now, got it for like 20 bucks on whiskey militia. The backpack is plenty big with ~2100 cu. inches and short of a monsoon does reasonably well at keeping my shit dry. Has a laptop compartment and everything! My only problem with it is the straps have absorbed about their saturation point in sweat and smell terrible now...

    I just got a new Chrome Warsaw from xbobeahenx. I like it so far, time will formulate a better opinion.

    I was using a Banjo Brothers Large Commuter Backpack, before I got the Chrome backpack. That bag was alright but wasn't that good quality (it was $90 though). After a year of hard use, it was getting very raggity. If you only have $90 for a bag, it was pretty good, but you get what you pay for, it's definitely much lower quality than the more expensive backpacks I have seen (like the Warsaw).

    My son would like to get one of the sling over the shoulder packs for his upcoming bar mitzvah. Does anyone have suggestions for a reputable brand that I could pick up at REI or perhaps Urban Outfitters (his favorite store)?

    Looking to make a patch for my backpack. Any recommendations on the type of material used? Im looking for somthing resiliant enough to retain its color through the elements. Also, any success stories with spray painting backpack canvas?

    graham i think spraypainting that kinda stuff is difficult. well, it depends if it's actual cotton canvas or the nylon stuff. are you talking about your bailey works? it hasta be the right kinda spraypaint, etc etc. you'd prob be better off just buying some screenprinting ink. same deal for the patch you wanna make too.Must be awful, being so fluffy.

    YESSSSSSSSS
    Punk iphone:I swear some of you^ are retarded. A fucking queer little Jansport will hold 99% of what you need. What it doesn't fit inside is easily secured to it from a number of straps.... Not "waterproof" enough? Try putting yer shit in a garbage bag then the jansport, works like a fucking wet dream. You shit-nuts would rather spend 200 dollars on a giant retarded looking bag that won't be "waterproof" after one fucking season anyway. Oh yeah, you "look" like a messenger with a huge retarded bag on, that's the draw I suppose? My motherfucking courierware bag is 15 years old and wasn't waterproof after a season or two. Guess what, I put my shit in a little grocery bag and then the courierware bag, and WALA it's fucking "waterproof"! Line your bag with 5 cents worth of a plastic bag and your there. I don't think one of the bag makers mentioned here^ where even making bags when I started using my courierware bag( I realize there a one strap design but I mention them because of the whole "waterproof" issue that you deem important, but is not). Use a real backpack made from any number of hiking companies b4 you throw your money away on something as stupid looking as that asshole wearing the obligatory rookie asshole head ware "brooklyn" cycling cap and that ugly fucking bag. JESUS H FUCKING CHRIST you people are dumb n getting dumber


    also
    joeyfresh, MPH:I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHY YOU'RE NOT ALL CARRYING AROUND A GARBAGE BAG LINED JANSPORT.
    You know what else I hate today? Bandannas. That's right: fuck bandannas. If you want to keep your pant leg from getting greased, just wear shorts motherfucker. And if you want to keep your neck warm, just wear mock turtlenecks everywhere.
    Also, don't all you kids use expensive locks? Why are you wasting your money? Whatever happened to a square knot and a shitty bike?
