backpack vs messenger bag
I'll be going to uni soon, and will be getting an Apple iBook 12'' ... I'm finding it hard to decide between a backpack and a mesenger bag... In college I usually carry a handbag filled with everything I need that could fit in it, and carry my files/books with my free hand... What I can remember about messenger bags is someone advising me to stay away from it, since when you carry it the weight is concentrated on only one side of your body, which could cause some health-related problems... Backpacks are more balanced of course, but I'm not sure it'd go with my style, since I prefer something more elegant... I was thinking of getting a Brain-Cell/Monolith first, then i'd have to decide whether I want to use a vertical backpack or horizontal messenger bag first! help, anyone?
