During my undergrad years L.L.Bean had the outdoor gear and apparel market all sewn up through-out campus. Back woods plaid shirts and flannel underwear were everywhere (the ladies would walk around campus in nothing but boxers). There was no online ordering at that time (gasp!) so it was common to make twice yearly trips to Maine to visit the store there and drink far too much watery American beer. I’ve had a number of L.L.Bean backpacks over the years and all have proved to be extremely durable if not somewhat too big. Updated to include all your electronic gadgets the Super Shockwave Pack is designed for the student who has to carry a full load of books and all the necessary tools for the classroom, iPod, Cell Phone, and Laptop. Features 600-denier ripstop polyester, stretch cord that holds an extra jacket on the outside, and a reflective stretch cord and piping on shoulder straps for visibility. It comes in a variety of prints and colours for $69.00US.
