eee... you will be kicking me i am going for a rolling one. there are many stylish ones and to be honest its very standard in the business world. i am not kiling out my back for a damn sole, so past the trying to be cute stage and am into trying to be real. back packs can kill and to me look even stupider when you have both straps on like you are going hiking or something. but who knows i will be parked on campus maybe i can jsut go to the car and change books. but frankly i don't give a hoot. and the roller bags do have protective sleeves there are also threads on this on nontradlaw.net
You're saying that it would be better to risk your back rather than risk looking like a nerd?So, it is better to look good than to feel good.
I'm from the planet where people don't give a damn what other think.
