With at least 100,000,000 items listed at any one time, Ebay would be a pretty safe place to find what you are after and even for newbies it is a pretty basic place to buy stuff off and usually even with postage works out cheaper than buying it from a shop. If you do decide on that and are a newbie to it, just make sure that the postage added to the item cost doesn't make it extremely expensive (sometimes sellers charge a lot more for postage than it actually costs them). Also make sure that they don't expect you to pay using Paypal as you most likely haven't got an account and that takes time and a little bit of hassels to set up. Preferably they will be a local seller and accept direct deposit otherwise you may need to spend the time and setup a Paypal account (it's a safe company to use as 100's of millions of people world wide use it for purchasing mainly off Ebay). Also unless they have a really large number like 1000 next to their username, click on the number and read what others write. If you follow what I have written you are almost certain to have a hassel free Ebay buying experience (many hundreds of purchases and yet to be dissapointed).

Alternatively you could go to a camping store or place specialising in selling backpacks and you'd most likely find one there (every backpacking place, usually a few shops in airports, even big department stoms like Marks and Spencer in UK would probably have them).

Eagle Creek make really good ones in silk, so they are nice and soft against your skin and dry really quickly if they get wet. They also have plastic liners to keep all your stuff dry. Available as a waist belt or round the neck thingy. Beige or Black. No, I dont work for the company, just loved mine to bits!
