    Hi, I was wondering if anyone could give me the names of shops which sell good college bags, preferably rucksacks. I have seen some nice bags at WHSmiths, but they are a bit too small, and so I'm looking for something mediumish. Thanks

    Kookai bags are great, they're not rucksacks but you'll find that hardly any girls use rucksacks. You wouldn't have thought you could get much in a bag. But you can fit loads. I've managed to get 2 thick Maths books, pad of paper, my pencil case, my lunch, calculater, planner and a book to read in it at one time.

    Thanks, I'll look out for them

    H&M is fab for selling big bags for around a tenner that r stylish and fit all your books in.
    Also if you have a student card TopShop is good because you get 10% off all their bags
    For some really nice bags try AsSeenOnScreen they might be a bit more expensive than usual, but if you fancy using them outside of school as well they're great :p:
    This one is my fave, and its really roomy as well!
    Or if your on a budget theres this one, and its really stylish as well as being cheap!

    Ahh, when we started 6th form basically all my mates thought they'd try and be grown up with big shoulder bags!! That lasted about a month then they all reverted to backpacks, bar 2 who I really hate. :cool:

    I had a bright pink Eastpak bag through yr 11, then I got a Roxy red and pink bag for my birthday this year, which is cool I'm the queen of bright backpacks. Some people at my school have amazing patterned ones but I couldn't seem to find any in Oxford. German has the best backpacks :love:

    you could have bought 1 decent bag for £15 quid and saved money and it would last you longer than 3 years..

    Lots of people at my school just had a normal little shoulder bag to carry round keys, wallet, phone etc, and then got those £5 patterned shopper bags from Topshop to carry books in when they needed them. I had 3 school bags, two from H&M one from a shoe shop. Just do whatever you feel comfortable with. To be fair, my sixth form was sort of a fashion parade at times, about 3 girls in the year had 'sensible' backpacks lol.

    exactly the same at my school. i had a small-ish bag from fatface which fits phone, wallet, keys, pens and pencils, bottle of water and lunch, and then had a bookbag thingy for shoving my school stuff in. advantage of that is that you can dump the books in the common room or library at lunch and then go into town without carrying loads of textbooks, or having to leave piles of books lying around which are just asking to be used like footballs.

    i think that a rucksack is the best bag. you can put in a lot of things in it and even though it isn't the most fashionable bag you can find really nice ones.(a lot of sport brands like nike, puma, addidas have some great ones.) they are also easy to carry.
