Killer of Chains
Do it all pack.
Any have any suggestions for a backpack that can be used for (ready?) commuting, day-pack, light-hike, college books, with water bladder and possibility of rain resistance?
My school backpack is almost 10 years old and the zippers are falling apart. It's time for an upgrade.
Kelty makes some really nice, durable bags. I have the older version of this and I love it. It's huge, but even with a full load, it's comfortable and distributes the weight well. I've used it for hiking and riding. My only gripe is that the back isn't that well ventilated, but they may have improved that on the new versions. Mine's almost 5 years old...
