I used an oh-so-stylish rucksack (now wearing out...) because I nearly always had two of those massive lever arch file things plus a load of textbooks, and it just seems silly to have a little handbag and then have to carry everything. Messenger bags look a bit better, but they don't always take the strain as well as a decent rucksack would, plus if you wear a bag with a strap on each shoulder, that kind of distributes the weight more evenly, so is better for your back.
I love bags, so I actually own a lot anyway. However, I usually use a Topshop shoulder bag, like the one pictured below. I own a couple, and they actually hold a surprising amount of stuff. This is useful, as some teachers insist that I take my A4 folder to every lesson, so I will sometimes have 4 folders to carry, plus all the other crap I need.
Thanks for all your replies people! Made me feel better now...I thought most people would just carry folders n stuff, but I'd so much rather have a bag coz it gets annoying having to carry eveything! Can I just point out that that bag isn't actually the bag I've got, it's just a similar one. That style and brand but just different!
Anyway, thanks everyone!
I have a karki messenger bag from burtons.
I have an Animal tote bag... it fits about 3 A4 folders in which should be ok, I think, seeing as I'll have a locker as well to keep stuff in...
In my college (iut goes from years 10-13) only the 6th form get lockers as there are hardly any.
I bought a H&M side-strap bag. Immense amount of pockets. Weird colour.
I've just been on holiday ang got a practical shoulder bag for folders and eveything it was 28.00 euros bvut it is sturdy!!
I've got a huge 'Animal' backpack/rucksack that I've had since I was about 15~, I'm intending ti finally replace it this year, if I have days where theres too much crap and I can't fit it all in, I can always revert to my old bag.
ermm... sorry for sounding dumb, but what is a messenger bag? i mean what do they look like?
It's all about the quicksilver ruck sack
