    I'm in love with this but (a) expensive (b) it looks a bit weird. Treating myself to a new rucksack for University. Looked at the Jansport Mini Trinity - colours available aren't really my taste :o: . I like black or blue (but not together - damn, I'm picky). In this rucksack I would need to fit - phone, wallet, 10in netbook, a4 pad of paper, tiny pencilcase, calculator. No files or anything, and I'm looking for a slim rucksack that will still fit all this stuff in.

    Any suggestions muchly appreciated.

    Water-resistant apparently. I believe it slips inside and zips up, the slidy-out thing is just for show.

    Ohhhhh. Ok.

    I can't help though, I've never seen anyone with a bag like that before, why not just use a bigger one - you'll need it for carting books to/from the library.

    I don't do that - as a Psych student I either own books or read journals online... Lucky really :P

    have you tried department stores? what about brands like 'roxy', they tend to have "stylish" rucksack style bags, but everything i can think of is probably too large..

    Yeah, is the problem. Just incase anyone had seen anything like it. The best I can think of is the 5L/10L daysacks sold by hiking stores, but they tend to be weirdly shaped...

    Everything I can think of is too big, a bog-standard rucksack is too big whilst something like a hydration pack (suits the small, slim requirement) but they would be too small to fit an A4 pad in. Crumpler might make something to suit but they are extremely expensive.

    I found the bag above for £44, free next-day shipping. Worth it? Even ordinary backpacks are about £30 these days (decent ones)
