I need to buy myself a bag for carry-on and every-day stuff. What do I want?

I've had the same Jansport for the last five years, and it's been okay, but I want to get something better for my semester abroad in a few months. During those three months, I will be taking many day-hikes, going to school, and riding a lot of trains, so versatility is important. It should be waterproof. It should be able to contain a godawful amount of crap. It's also important to me that the bag is at least semi-fashionable (I like stuff like Fjällräven and Herschel, but I'm leery of their construction and shit-packing capabilities). Above all, though, I need it to be COMFORTABLE to lug around with me everywhere. I want to spend about $200, less is better. What should I buy?
