Not Too Little America

A good Herschel bookbag is more than just one pocket to throw your things into. The top of the line models from the brand come with extra sleeves for your laptop and other gadgets, ports for routing your headphone cord through them and more. That’s why we like the Herschel Supply Co. 10014-00001-OS, dubbed Little America, the bestseller from the brand.

Don’t let the vintage design on this backpack fool you into thinking it’s not innovative. This classic model is as good as it gets with faux eco-leather inserts and polyester covering it inside and out. Even the laptop sleeve is fleece-lined and extra-padded to make sure your device is stored safely.

If you’re not big on zippers, you’ll surely like the straps that keep the Herschel 10014-00001-OS closed, the brown faux-leather contrasting nicely with the black polyester. There is one zipper, placed on the front pocket, but it’s a necessity as that’s the place where you’ll likely store your keys and valuables. Those that’d prefer easier access to their keychain can hang it on the carbine on the back of the bag.

Just like the other models in the Herschel line-up, the Little America rucksack is all about convenience with adjustable shoulder straps and soft padding on the back for comfortable wear. However, it’s one of the smaller bags from the company as it won’t even fit an A4-sized book without you having to bend it. So maybe not the best choice as a student’s school bag.

That said, it’s tough to deny that the Little America backpack is a cool-looking and high-quality rucksack. We can definitely see why it’s one of the brand leaders and recommend it to anyone who needs a bag for daily use.

Ease the Load on Your Shoulders

Need a rucksack that you can take with you on hikes out into nature but your back starts aching the moment you even think about putting that thing on your back? Go ahead and try the Herschel Retreat backpack, designed specifically for long-term wear without any discomfort.

Both the adjustable shoulder straps and the back of the bag are padded for softness so you won’t feel sore after carrying whatever supplies you take with you. We do have to admit that you won’t be lugging that much as the pack has a 19.5 L capacity. It’s enough for short trips but not great for mountain travel or those hikes where you need a lot of special equipment.

Of course, you don’t have to use the Herschel Retreat for nature trips only. It would work just fine as an everyday rucksack, thanks to its 15-inch laptop sleeve and headphone port. Plus, the straps have magnetic clasps so the bag opens fast for easy access in case you need to get something in or out.

So don’t hesitate to put the Herschel Supply Co. 10066-00535-OS on your back and make your burdens easier to carry. With a variety of colors, this model can be both a men’s and women’s Herschel backpack, especially since it’s soft enough to wear comfortably without sweating or ending up with red lines all over your shoulders.

Trusty Companion for Years

Backpacks aren’t just a young man’s accessory anymore with models ranging from school bags for kids to huge rucksacks that can be used for travel. However, there’s no shame in getting a throwback model like the Herschel Heritage backpack, something that looks good and can hold a variety of textbooks without tearing. The name of this bag is telling as even your kids will be able to wear it after you’re done with backpacks.

Pretty much every part of the bag is reinforced, from the bottom to the carrying handles to the zipper pulls, all of them made of thick pebbled leather. This extends the backpack’s durability and gives it a rugged look that’s perfectly suitable for younger men. Speaking of looks, we have to warn you that the color may end up a bit darker than what the images suggest. So if, for example, you’ve been looking to get a gray Herschel backpack, pick something with a lighter shade.

Even though the Heritage rucksack is pretty compact, it still holds 21.5 L and can easily fit a 15-inch laptop into the internal pocket. Plus, you can use the outer zippered pocket for storing your valuables or things that you may need in an emergency.

So get the Herschel Heritage if you want a backpack that’ll stay in the family and keep your belongings safe. It’s a super-sturdy fashionable rucksack that’s fit for any man.

Pop Quiz Passes the Test

Got your own rucksack already and want a Herschel backpack for your kids? Take a look at the Herschel Supply Co. 10011-00006-OS, a mini-sized model that’s just as good as adult ones but designed specifically for children.

It’s a compact yet capacious bag that fits up to 22 L, which means that your child can carry every single schoolbook or notebook as well as any personal belongings the little wonder may want to have around. In fact, it will even fit a lunch if you pack one for the kid and you could even stack a juicebox in a separate pocket without worrying about spills. This is all thanks to the waterproof polyester lining, which will keep the contents of the bag dry even when it’s raining cats and dogs outside.

Speaking of safe storage, the Pop Quiz rucksack also has a special fleece-lined pocket for storing glasses, a great bonus for bespectacled kids. There’s also a special 15-inch sleeve that will see some use if your child is already responsible enough to have his or her own laptop. And whatever school supplies you put inside should go into the front pocket that has internal organizers to separate pens from pencils and so on.

This kind of backpack is sure to make your child feel all grown up, having this little space of his or her own to keep the belongings. However, make sure to help the kid adjust the straps so that the bag doesn’t tug on their shoulders. Your child could do it on his or her own but the straps do require some force to move so an adult may have an easier time adjusting them.

Plus, the Herschel Pop Quiz backpack comes in a variety of colors, which makes it equally suitable for boys and girls. Choose this model if you want your children to have a cool accessory that’s going to fit all of their schoolbooks, a lunch box, and more.

Never a Burden

Like the idea of a rucksack to keep all your valuables in but don’t want a huge bag to weigh you down? Go for a compromise and get the Herschel Settlement backpack, a compact yet spacious bag that’s not going to be a burden.

Despite holding up to 23 L, the Herschel 10005-00007-OS weighs remarkably little as it’s made of light materials. They are, of course, still quite durable and pretty much all elements of the bag are reinforced or lined so that the delicate material doesn’t tear even when the backpack is filled up.

As always, this Herschel bag has several pockets for your keys and phone and other valuables as well as a special sleeve for laptops. The latter is, of course, lined and padded to make sure the device isn’t damaged during transportation. Really, the inside of the bag is so soft you could carry a toddler in it, not that we recommend doing so.

Still, nobody’s perfect and the Herschel Settlement backpack does have its flaws. For example, the zippers seem to get stuck sometimes, though that’s not exactly a dealbreaker. Plus, we could have used just a bit more padding in the shoulder straps, just for that extra comfort.

But we’d be insane to argue against this Herschel rucksack, which combines an affordable price with high-quality materials to create an accessory that anyone can wear comfortably.

What Is a Herschel Backpack?

The bags you’ll see today are made by our good Canadian neighbors in the North. While the company is relatively fresh-faced, having entered the market in just 2009, the product line-up has been growing steadily and getting quite a lot of renown. A stylish and affordable Herschel backpack is quickly turning from a hipster symbol of coolness to an everyday accessory that’s used by people all over the world for carrying books, hiking gear, and much more. They may be modestly sized but each of these rucksacks can hold quite a lot, all thanks to the sturdy materials, chosen for their durability as well as the refined look.

Of course, it’d be silly of us to claim that the Herschel bags are somehow specifically different from many other rucksacks made all over the world. Yes, their design is more impressive and they are quite sturdy but don’t expect a bag that will revolutionize your life. What you should expect, though, is high quality, impeccable design, and a big bag for all your necessities.

If you’ve got kids who are about to go to school and want to have a bookbag as cool as your Herschel rucksack, check out our list of school backpacks. And since you can take your bag with you out to the nature, don’t forget to pack a picnic blanket so you can relax out in the park.
