As you grow older, you learn the value of investing in reliable bags, because as with everything else, buying for quality can actually be cheaper in the long run; buying something of inferior make only means you'll have to replace them often. This goes double when you commute to work, especially since your everyday carry will be subject to bumpy rides, strong thunderstorms, and (heaven forbid) the occasional snatcher.
