Timbuk2's Metro Bag - perhaps "the perfect personal tote and shoulder bag for travel and urban adventures" - can be found for $44 at EMS after their "friends & family" coupon for 20% off via code SP4FF (expires 12/4). They come in a variety of fun colors (and a less fun, but very practical black) and are ultra-durable. Plenty of interior and exterior pockets allows for impeccable organization. Shipping is $8.99 or free if you spend $125. Sales tax is only charged to about a dozen states, mainly on the East Coast.
