    neither. I prefer an ordinary black nike bag with strings that go over your should like any other bag.

    It doesn't attract attention, I won't feel paranoid that someone may peek into my bag and try to nick something + I can store my books comfortably.

    pretty much perfect for me.

    Surely since at your side you would notice if someone where to try and nick something?

    I think the first one looks better, very smart.

    not really. The bag would be at your side but that doesn't stop someone opening the zip.

    when someone sees my black nike bag it isn't attractive and hence they wouldn't want anything to do with it

    Forgot to point out my bag is always closed because of the way it's designed (you know what I mean).

    The first one is alot more feminine, the dunlop appears to be alot more masculine, the first is smarter but i would say it all depends on your style

    True that

    No but seriously, I always carry side bags when I'm carrying lots of books and it's incredibly difficult for anyone to get in there without you noticing. If anything, it's more likely for someone to get something out of your backpack since it's on your back and not where you can see it.

    i'd go for the strongest rather than the best looking one

    oh and a tiny rant: i hate it when people say theyre in uniform, when theyre actually in business dress. uniform is my maroon blazer, off white/cream blouse, itchy grey jumper and stiff skirt. oh how i'd wish to be in business dress, why would anyone put uniform and such freedom on the same level? :rolleyes:
