I'm looking to buy backpack and I honestly have no clue where to start. It doesn't need to be anything fancy and I'm looking to keep it relatively cheap ($50) I honestly don't really know where to look or what brands specialize in this stuff. I've look at North Face/Supreme/Swiss Gear, but it's too expensive.

Anyone know of any brands that specialize in this stuff, or possibly have a website where you can customize your own? No messenger bags/sling bags/euro bags etc.

Thanks in advance

custom backpacks are much more than $50. reload (philly based) has them for $200 i think, and my seagull backpack was like $325.

I guess I need to up my price range then. The lowest North Face bag (vault series) was $45 online, and the materials just looked like a recycled garbage bag.

For 50 dollars you're only going to get a walmart POS backpack that is covered in cartoon characters.

Dax has a Toy Story backpack that I'm sure he would recommend. It even came with a matching insulated lunch box.

I'm hoping to get a Saddleback Leather Backpack at some point, I got one of their travel cases for christmas and its the most durable bag i've ever owned, expensive but they come with literally a 100 year warranty.

at my old store I sold a shitload of Dakine backpacks. they're super durable and guaranteed for life.

leather rucksacks from LL Bean were the shit when i was in college. a little more preppy-casual than hipster-y "urban" style stuff. depends on your style.

probably $100-200, but they last forever. they look good when they're new but better the more you use them.

try jcrew, too.

I've had the same back pack for the past 10 years. Just a nondescript one I purchased at a Army/Navy surplus store.
