    I have always hated rolling backpacks so much, but I broke down and bought one for NS. I am such a weenie w/ my back anyway though. I ended up getting a Jansport one at my bookstore, so I could charge it against my loans and grants. It was $56, but online the cheapest one I found like it was $55, most were $70, so that's not too bad.

    Same Here!! Finally broke down and got a rolling one this year. I've used it one week and love it so much I could care less if I look like a dork or not. We don't need our books in class but I like to study in between classes.

    Day 1 of class, a handful of us had rolling backpacks, a few had luggage packs, Day 3 of class 99% have rolling backpacks. We're all flying to LPNdom and our backs are loving us for it! (our brains are another matter altogether).

    Count me in as well! Just this weekend I went out and bought a rolling backpack at walmart for $20, nothing fancy, but my back will thank me.

    I used to think they were dorky as well (sorry!), but now I don't care. I will be using it for clinicals as well.

    The reason I didn't mention it is because unfortunately I can't remember! The name isn't written anywhere on the pack or my receipt. The receipt shows only an inventory number of 013383 TVC 45520-CL ROLL BP, which Bags & Baggage could probably look up and tell you the name.

    Thanks GratefulHeart-------I found a High Sierra rolling backpack at Bags &

    Baggage. It wasnt cheap but I dont mind. $99.00-- I will be able to use it for actual

    I love, love, love my rolling backpack! I bought it from eBags for around $100 when I was taking A&P and Micro at the same time.

    In high school (quite a qhile ago) I carried all of my books all the time and my back always hurt me.

    I don't care if people think I'm a dork or if I look like an idiot. I love my backpack and my back loves me!

    It also has a special laptop section. I don't have a laptop, but I use the padded section for more books.

    I can not even get half of my school books in my back pack. I am thinking I will stop at Costco after school and get one of those bags with wheels. I always though those people looked kinda dorky...this is school not the terminal! Looks like I will have to buy a one way ticket to dorksville!

    Any one else use the bags with wheels? If not, now do you get all your books around?
    I always thought those things were dorky too, but I really want one now. This is my third semester in the nursing program, and I still haven't gotten one yet. I've been telling my husband since day one that I want one, and he just makes fun of me. But the other day before school started, I was gathering all of my books, and he was like, "All those can't be for this semester!" I told him they were, and he said, "You need one of those rolling bookbags." (Like I had never mentioned it before.)

    Lots of people in my class have them. And I swear, one girl has a small rolling suitcase. Sometimes we have to walk a really good ways to class, and my upper back and neck just kill me by the time I get where I'm going.
