    Need backpack recommendation

    Can you guys recommend a simple, water-resistant backpack for under $40? Looking for something I could use to store my bottled water, keys, and maybe another thing or two - nothing over-the-top. Most of the stuff I've found online is either super expensive or when it's a bit less pricey, it comes with a ton of pockets and every bell and whistle under the sun. Wasn't sure where else to look, so figured I'd ask you guys. I'm assuming such a bag exists?

    I can understand if you're about to drop 2 bills on a bag, but $40?

    does it hold ****? sweet.
    does it go on your back? sweet.

    buy it.

    Go down to target, pick up a jansport and call it a day.

    Can you clarify - you want to carry bottled water and keys. I get that. But what are you talking about bells? Is that the "thing or two" you are talking about? Are you in a band or a choir or something? How big are the bells? I know most whistles are small so if you can clarify how big the bells are and how many you carry, that will help.

    It ain't that serious, dude. Relax. Who does it hurt if I ask people on here for something I thought was a bit hard to find online (a water-resistant bag for under $40)? Plus, I walk away with an idea I didn't have beforehand: to check thrift stores.

    Anyway, thanks to those that provided an actual recommendation. I appreciate it.

    Seems the wit is endless on this board. But just in case you're serious, I mean I don't want headphone sockets, 30 zippers, and 40 pockets, etc.

    Like Nag said, Jansport at Target/Wallyworld, that shouldn't be more than $30. And then you can get a can of silicone spray for like $4-5, and you could even get two cans and make it insanely waterproof. All Problems solved.

    You know, although I appreciate your help, I'd suggest, for the sake of some of the members sanity, that we put an end to the recommendations. At least until the meds have kicked in.

    You came here for recommendations, did you not? That, or I'm a little confused by your thread title.


    Is this even a thing?

    If you're saying what I think you're saying, then it was just a simple post until Death Rock up there decided to project his hatred towards his family on me.

    I feel like Scrod hasn't posted again yet because he's walking out to the shed, looking for his hammer.



    Just in case.

    That. Or it takes a bit of time to type while gently moving his lovely locks out of the way.
