@Felthry the $50-70 price range is about where I'm looking - I want something that'll last a few years but not break the bank

(the bag I was looking at that prompted this thread is $210, before adding on the custom size of laptop sleeve required)

@Felthry this seems like a good brand suggestion, they've got a lot of packs for 15in laptops in my price range, will have to explore their options!

@lugh I like the subtlety of this assuming I found the right one!

still looking for backpack recommendations - failing that, tell me about your bag and why you like it, because I think I'm becoming a bag nerd by proxy

oh dear i'm thinking about getting a new backpack* and getting distracted by the ones that are far too expensive for what i need

if you have any recommendations let me know
- must be water resistant
- must be able to fit a 14 inch laptop (preferably padded) + a fairly large lunchbox
- current bag is 30L & I like that kind of size though could go down a little with better organization

* my current one is getting kind of ratty in multiple places, most of the water resistant coating has come off

@switchingsocial @Lobst Shady for other reasons as well - they offer options to give cryptocurrency to creators, but many of those creators have not actually signed up for the service and will not do so - Brave has preemptively created donation accounts. I follow Tom Scott on Twitter, which is how I found out about this. theblockcrypto.com/2018/12/24/

The web browser Brave is marketed as a privacy-friendly ad-free alternative, but that's pretty disingenuous.

Brave exists not to protect privacy, but to make money from selling ads.

Brave is a commercial company funded by venture capital. Its business model is selling advertising and cryptocurrency investment.

One of Brave's owners is Peter Thiel's Founders Fund. Thiel is also the head of Palantir (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palantir) and on the board of Facebook.

I do not recommend using Brave.
