A laptop satchel that converts to a backpack, has a 100-year guarantee and boasts the tagline “bags they will fight over when you’re dead.”

Unfortunately, it also comes with a hefty price tag. ::SIGH::

Basically, I’m looking for something that will carry my stuff comfortably (ie as a backpack, and not a shoulder bag), but doesn’t make me look like I should be carrying a lunchbox and a pre-algebra textbook as well.

As I’m an external-motivation junkie, the new pack will not be acquired until I finish and submit the short story I’m working on.
