I operate heavy equipment for a living. I frequently jump from one piece to another.I carry my lunch and tools of the trade in a jansport pack that is about 15 years old. I have a eye level and folding engineers rule as well as a retractable engineers tape for taking shots of my grade. I also cary engineers ribbon in three colors balc and red markers a leather man metal thermos and all my documents There is a hammer hatchet for digging and driving lathe. I often throw the bag uponto the deck of d-10 bull dozers and other equipment that requires both hands to climb the laders up on and i hate to have to stand on the narrow decks and take off a pack at the top. So I usualy throw it up and grab it as I enter the cab. When I climb down I usualy drop it to the ground and pick it up when i step off the ladder.The pack is beat up ugly stained with grease and oil and ground in dirt on the out side but has never broken and still very serviceable.

The Walmart bags are pretty sturdy. I get several years of use from them. I usually put something in mine that pokes a hole in the bag or the zipper dies. If the OP is ripping the handle off the bags he might want to look at a backpack with a metal frame. To rip the handle off a Walmart bag he has to load the backpack with 50lb or more. Loading a pack like that requires a metal frame.

Really if he is carrying a backpack by the handle he might be better off with a brick masons tool bag. Backpacks are meant to support the load with the shoulder straps, not the handle. The masons tool bag is meant to be carried by the handle.

Default You need a Man-PACK

You need a Man-PACK. It fits the bill of what you are looking for exactly. It's made of canvas so it's durable. It looks manly, and it's stylish.
check out the website http://www.Man-PACK.com
also check out the funny youtube commercial "The Man-PACK man" It's hilarious!

Any suggestions?

By the way, my daughters call it my "Man-Purse" so that's where that came from but hey man! it's not fair women get to carry all that stuff! my pockets are full of too much already! I need a purse...err I mean a bag too!

You see many guys on the streets of Manhattan - office types - carrying shoulder slung bags. It is very normal and accepted. Briefcase are no longer - it's forms of bags.

I'd be checking out some business or office supply types shops - especially in the Manhattan NY type area. The one suggestion you got already - the kind of tear drop shaped bags were close.
