The ultimate dojo bag

I'm looking for suggestions for the grand ultimate dojo bag. The current bag is being retired, mostly because it's falling apart, but also for insufficient capacity -- we just got the shower operational in the dojo, and there simply isn't room for a towel! So, here's what I'm looking for:

- Good construction, good materials. My current bag is peeling on the inside (you know that sort of rubbery-plasticy backing you find on cordura bags? That stuff is peeling off), one of the fasteners on the shoulder strap has broken, and the zippers are all on the edge. It's not like this is a 20-year bag, either -- I've had it less than four years. I hate throwing things out, so I want my next bag to be something that isn't going to fall apart like this.

- Capacity, but not too much. The bag needs to hold gi, hakama, belt, towel, a few toiletries and maybe a roll of sports tape -- that's it. Larger is okay, but too much larger is not good, because I will fill it up if it's there.

- Separate compartments for clean dry stuff and wet smelly stinky stuff is a big ol' plus. Separate pocket for toiletries/tape is also nice too.

Any suggestions?
