Chrome and Timbuk2 will last you a lifetime. If you want something that not everyone else has, then look at Rickshaw, Mission Workshop (pricey), ReLoad, Hershal (becoming more popular now), or Buck Products. The tactical packs like 5.11 look and function great for their intended purpose (tactical, rugged), but these other companies I mentioned are going to give you a more versatile look through high school and college and beyond. My personal picks: Chrome Hondo or Timbuk2 Uptown. Also can't go wrong with a standard Chrome or Timbuk2 messenger bag (what I used most often in college).

You may want to check out Direct Action. They have good quality packs (backpack and messenger) for the price. The laser cut MOLLE webbing offers the same functionality you would expect from traditional, but with a more refined/cleaner look. I use them for my 72hr./emergency kit bags and love them.

OK, The Narrow Gent thanks for the suggestions. Since it is my birthday tomorrow I have been looking and I think I like the Timbuk2 Uptown backpack it's just I am not entirely sure if I can fit school supplies in it. Do you have one to test on or see if it could hold several binders in the main compartment because I am not entirely sure and there is nothing really on it if it can. The reviews on Amazon are kinda conflicting. Any help would be appreciated and thanks for the suggestions in the first place.

I do not currently own one, but I do and have owned similarly sized bags (30L). However, I used them for college and not high school. Unfortunately, I cannot say whether or not it will hold several binders plus laptop and other items since it is 6.5" in depth; depends heavily on the size/depth of each item. Best I can say is that if you cannot fit everything, than you could look to consolidate what you carry and/or utilize school lockers more. Not sure that helps you at all, but hope it does. Good luck, and happy birthday.
