    Rucksacks are the way to go but the one you posed is very expensive. Not to mention there are only 2 reviews which means the quality may not be up to par with the price you paid.

    Rucksack should be perfectly fine, if thats what you want. Many of the girls at my school can't fit anything in their small handbags.

    But £55 for a rucksack, wow. Didn't know they were that expensive.

    There are two reviews but they both rated the bag 5 stars and said the quality was very good. I think the price is worth it. I've had rucksacks that were half the price of the one above and they didn't last long before tearing.

    Rucksacks are fine, yeah, but I personally prefer side bags/handbags because you can slip in papers or quickly fetch books out instead of needing to take the bag off your back first... but that's just my preference! Primark do very cheap bags that aren't bad quality, and so does New Look, so maybe check there too.

    I like the design, but as someone above has said, there are only 2 reviews.

    I think you would be best going into a shop and see how strong the bags are. If you have a lot of books, you want a strong bag.

    It's a grey rucksack with brown leather buckle bits (it's not the one that you posted the link to)
