Try Jansport, they have a lifetime warranty. I bought one in '96 and haven't paid for a back pack since, they have replaced my pack twice... No questions asked! The one I have now is about 7 yrs old and shows no sign of wearing out. I take it everywhere, the list of "less than manly" nicknames my wife has for it is nearly endless.

Check out some laptop backpacks. I picked up mine at Target for less than $30. Tons of pockets; most with bi-directional double zippers. And the rear full length section is padded front and back. Perfect for protecting a couple handguns. I modified mine with two internal holsters that I Velcro in. Had it nearly a year now with no issues.

Most of the laptop bags wear out pretty quick if you carry a load in them (such as an old heavy laptop). I use to constantly go through them. I finally found a good one made by Samsonite and still have it many years later.

I had the same experience with back packs. I've got a really heavy "HP" computer back pack that has held up pretty well. One of the better computer back packs I've seen had the Swiss army logo on it but I have no idea who made it. A friend of mine had one of those and it held up real well for him. I would expect Jan sport to hold up as well.

Just expect to pay a lot for any quality back pack that's going to constantly carry a load, and even then it could go to pieces. You just stand a better chance if it costs a lot more but that's not a guarantee.

As a college student at a regimented academy, were all forced to use jansport black backpacks.
Lifetime warranty, and it's held up nicely over 3.5 years.
Wore it out shopping in 3rd world countries too.
In other words, I'm impressed.

Go to a military surplus store and look for a canvas parachute bag or gear bag. They are pretty durable.

I use a monsoon gear slinger by maxpedition. It is small durable and has a place for a holster inude it. Multiple colors available too. It is a bag that blends In well for everyday.

Unrelated story (other than there is a bag in it) but several years ago I was visiting DC with my mom, aunt and grandmother and we were going into the Congressional Office Building before touring the Capitol, grandma was in a wheelchair and they had her stand up to walk through the metal detector and she left her handbag on the wheelchair. The security guard said "The bag has to go through."

I turned to him and said in my sternest and meanest Dirty Harry voice "WHAT did you call my grandmother??!!"

He just about spit his teeth out apologizing, but I was just joking. Grandma got a great laugh out of it and so did I.

Nothing like a good laugh at the expense of grandma.

Oh no! Not at all! She was just playing the straight man without having to do a thing. She enjoyed it as much as I did- she knew me well enough to know I was just fooling around.

PS. She passed away 5 years ago at nearly 99 years old.
