Hi, so I'm just looking for a durable backpack for Uni and Traveling something at least uhh 18"-20" in terms of height?

Or Just recommend me any good backpack that's durable/heavy duty (My description is pretty vague so excuse me for that.)

Hmm, I'll just say $0-$80 for now

Edit: Just tired of using my or this Swiss gear backpack because when I have textbooks or what not... my backpack like pops out and will be hella annoying for passengers in the Metro especially early in the morning during Rush Hour (am). Also, just that its way too short in terms of height.. (Welp, I think i ranted enough. xD)

I think it depends on how much stuff you need to carry and how you commute to and from school (i.e. you ride a bike to school). 

 

With that said, I think if I had to go back to do my undergraduate again right now and needed to buy a backpack, I would probably buy this:

I know it's out of your $80 budget but I think this backpack is a good balance of features, durability and worth the price. Has a good mix of pockets, although leaning on the tech-y side but still versatile enough for general use. IMO it takes some great features from the original Access pack and refines it into a lightweight ergonomic package.

 

I'm a sucker for black on black and I like how the exterior uses different fabrics, which keeps it more aesthetically interesting with the different textures.

Try the Chrome Hondo or the Timbuk2 backpack line.
