Default College students.. How heavy'* your bag?

Dang. I thought it was just my imagination that my backpack for college was heavy with the 6 books for my 4 classes and my laptop but it wasn't. I weighed it and it came in at over 40 pounds. No wonder my back'* been killing me. anyone else weigh their bags before? ha.

I'm with you, I opt for more trips back and forth and less weight each time.

the most I have is 2 classes in a row, so only 2 books, and 2 spirals. I doubt it weighs all that much. 15-20 lbs. Although my classes are a good bit over a 1/4 mile from the dorms
