Botkier - In need of a school bag

  1. I'm looking for a school bag and stumbled upon the Botkier sale. I need a bag that fits a notebook, preferably a folder, phone, small cosmetics case, wallet, keys and pens.

    I don't own a Botkier bag yet and I'd really like to get one after the praise I've heard.

    From the styles on sale I really like Bryant large hobo/satchel and Roxy large satchel. Anyone have personal or other experience? Would one of these fit my needs? Or suggest something else :smile:
  2. I don't know if either of these will be big enough - it depends on how big/thick your notebook and folders are.

    They're great bags though, I'm sure you could find plenty of uses for them. I am looking at the Bryant large hobo for myself, but haven't made a decision yet!
  3. I posted on the Botkier Sale thread after you :smile:. Seems that I won't get a bag at all since the shipping would be 154.90$ :wtf: I emailed them about other options, but I think that will be a dead end :sad:
  4. I'd say no for sure on the Bryant hobo. It doesn't have a large enough opening to accommodate school books and notebooks, and it's shape isn't right.

    I don't know anything about the other bag though.
  5. $154.90? That's insane. I don't understand why they charge so much, I've sent fairly heavy items across Europe and even to Japan for far less than that.

  6. I don't understand this either. I've some sites offering shipping for as low as 40$.
  7. That shipping price is ridiculous! Can you settle for another brand?
  8. I managed to get the Bryant large hobo and get it shipped to a friend in US who'll forward it to me! I'm very happy about this purchase :girlsigh:
