My old jansport backpack which I havehad for probably ten years is starting to fall apart and I'm looking for a new one to replace it. I have a few requirements which :
- minimalist design
- black or grey
- Small ("women's") size
- at least two sections (main compartment and front compartment
- enough room to hold 5 notebooks, a 1 inch binder, and a thin laptop
- laptop sleeve built in (this would be nice, but it's no big deal if it doesn't have one)
- built to last a few years
- under $150
I was looking around at the local stores and only found really big backpacks.
Everlane is definitely better construction and much more comfortable for carrying anything more than some notebooks and a laptop or more.
Still, I love the look of the kanken, and the durability seems great. I found a pretty good deal for the kanken big on amazon, so I might end up buying it.
