Camelbak "The Don" vs. Dakine Nomad/Apex/Amp 12l/18l

Okay, Im looking for a good bag. My requirements are:

1. Be nice and snug to the body, not flopping around. I plan to use this bike for commutes to school, but more so for trail riding. My dad doesnt carry supplies, and after a friends last wreck, I want to start.
2. Be big enough to use for commuting, such as carrying books, clothes, etc.
3. Stylish. Being only 17, I dont want something bland. I want it to look as good as it works!
4. Work well with a non-full face helmet. I just got a brand new Specialized Vice helmet, and its sick! I wouldnt mind showing it off when Im not rockin it!
5. <$100 new. Both can be had for that new, but the Dakines are cheaper. I just know Camelbaks have their reputation for a reason.

I bike to school almost daily, and I plan on using this pack as my in school pack, as well as hiking, traveling, and every day things.

Any tips or experience would be great! Thanks!

Camelback is a great product. Getting one big enough for college books is out of my league. And no one is gonna loan you one for a week to check it out. REI is becoming my favorite outlet both in store and online for this type product. I have a High Sierra Hydration pack that has a cargo netting for transporting your helmet. That might be an option for carrying books.

As far as lookin SICK, come on! The Roadie forum is down the list a ways. Nothing is fashionable until covered in BST!

Blood, sweat, and tears is something I live by. Thanks for the reply!

Not too many replies on this one. I might just take a stab at it!
