 #505: Rolling Back Pack. The sale price is $29.95! These packs will hold up to a 17 inch computer with plenty of room left over for a small scanner or printer along with your files.  The front panel is great for holding any pens, pencils, stapler, paper clips or any other supplies you might need while doing research. The front panel is also removable.  It would make a nice Christmas present!
