    I carry quite a few folders, i like to be over-prepared than under prepared so I take a lotttt with me... My last two bags ripped. I require a back pack of a decent size to carry a fair bit. If any of you could recommend a decent sized bag (doesnt have to be fashionable) just cheap and reliable and large but not too large. Thanks!

    Being over-prepared is good. Carrying your over-preparation everywhere with you, is not.

    Editing and prioritising is part of the academic process.

    And on reflection, carrying all your texts at all times smacks of under-preparation to me.

    Personally, from experience, (since I tend to do the same thing as you) EASTPAK has been the best brand for bags. They have their normal size bags which are pretty good but I take the slightly bigger ones with the laptop sleeve as they're more spacious. They come in many designs and colour which is nice and they're very classy.

    Best of all, I've had two for the past 10 years now, one of which I've used everyday for the past 4 years and it still hasn't broken or been torn. The zips are excellent quality too, if I may say so, with all the squeezing I do haha

    So yes, just get an EASTPAK!
