I remember in high school when they started introducing those backpacks with the strap that you buckle around your chest and how dorky it was for anyone to actually walk around with them buckled.

And the best part for me: how do you carry a change of clothes in those? Gym shoes? There are many advantages to having a big, amorphous zippered pouch.

This thing is just a laaaaaaaaame double messenger bag.

Thats bad, but I dont think anything says "I'm a huge dork" like those rollers.

Wow, that just looks pointless, not to mention ridiculous. Plus, most backpack problems are caused by people not wearing them properly, or just carrying too much crap, both which can be fixed pretty easily.

And yeah, rollers likely still out-dork this.

My last full semester, I'd walk around with at least 3 textbooks, 2 notebooks and my laptop in my 10 year old L.L. Bean backpack. Worked just fine, I'm no worse for the wear although the bag could probably be replaced.

We use to full-bore punch kids with LL Bean anything in my HS - reason enough right there.

Might be partially why I've never owned a backpack my entire school career.

For me, the weight of a backpack was only an issue in high school. There was far too little time and too much distance to walk between classes to go to your locker and get things, so people, myself included, just packed everything into the backpack. In college, since there's only 2-3 classes a day, it was never heavy.

In HS, I just carried everything from the locker to class and back. Backpack was generally reserved for the end of the day and maybe during lunch. Then again, I did all my homework during school the day it was due.

I never carried a backpack and I never used a locker. I would always use the spare textbooks in the class room and turned the ones assigned to me back in at the end of the year. As for homework in the textbook, I would either do what I could the last ten minutes of class and the first ten minutes of class the next day, copy it if I didn't feel like giving a f@#k, or just not do it at all.

Honor student this.

Haha, I did homework sometimes the day off as well, but more often then not there simply wasn't time to do such a thing, so I did it the night before. Now when I say night before, this includes week long projects and such.

In college where there was more time and more relaxed classes....yeah I did homework last minute more often.

Only my last semester, where we had a semester long senior studio project that would determine whether or not you graduated did I do all my work on diligently and on time, and even then I just barely go it finished.

The first year of college I bought all my books new from the store. I was young, naive. :P

After that, I would either buy them used online, my friend and I would split the cost and share the books, and by 2nd semester Junior year we didn't buy any books at all.

What we would do is go to the library, and use his camera to take photos of the pages we needed. :lol:

Meh, put all my text books into Kindle format and I'll carry a netbook for taking notes on.

I always had my study halls fall towards the end of the day, so my homework had to be done the night before. We never actually studied in study hall either (I was in band study hall and it was basically 50 minutes of screwing around), so of course nothing got done during the day.

Wait. What is a locker? There was no such thing for us. Except in the gym where we kept our clothes in this tiny little box and we were able to use the big locker during class.

Don't you 2 go getting your LL Bean undies in a snit - tho it read that way, by "we" I meant a certain contingency of my HS, but I was not one of them. This was also a very different time than the touchy-feely '00s when you two were in HS.

I didn't create it- I was just there.

Lighten up, dudes; HS is over! :cheers:

Never had much LL Bean product (though my folks always got the catalogs)...I was more of an Eddie Bauer fan in the big 80s as far as bags, etc went.
