This backpack is the bees knees if you know what I mean. It's spacious, stylish, and has gotten me a lot of compliments. The laptop compartment fits my 15" Macbook and a folder PERFECTLY and securely. And I love the comfort of the straps. But there are a few things that aren't so hip. While the leather straps are stylish, they are also annoying. They magnetically snap on, but it's still more time-consuming than just a zipper. Also, there isn't a water bottle holder. This is a HUGE con (at least for me). Lastly, there are minimal storage pockets which cause me to just dump most of my stuff into the bottom of the bag, never to be found again.

These are made from very cheap leather with poor sewing. The leather crumples in bad weather and the sewing comes undone where it attaches the leather to the bag. The long satchel drawstring whips if someone is within two or three feet of you. It gets much better on the inside. It has an excellent laptop storage compartment. However, the cheap leather this bag uses really kills the crisp look.

I had to buy a bag from my recent trip to Peru that I can bring on the plane and still use as comfortable bag to hike around Machu Picchu and I found it in this. The only negative comment I have is that the front pocket is too small and the draw string was a little cumbersome, but then again it also acts as extra "security" especially if you are walking around a touristy area. But other than that it’s really comfortable and had plenty of space to carry in the plane and still small enough to fit underneath the seat.

The rust bag was about as pictured, but the leather was a little browner, making it a closer match to the bag itself and therefore kind of clashy. I also want to echo the reviewer below - the leather DID look cheap, especially for a bag this expensive. It would have been better to use a high-quality pleather than this thin, cheap leather, especially for something so visible. It seemed like a comfortable bag (I only wore it around the house briefly) but I was overall very unimpressed. The front pocket was small and hard to access for a right-handed person. All in all, underimpressed.

I needed a backpack that would be big enough for me to carry big books, notebooks, pens, pencils, and clothes to change into. This bag is HUGE and half the size of me, but it feels strangely lightweight. My only gripe is that it doesnt have a lot of pockets and is a bit TOO big so I can't grab things easily right away (I have to set the backpack down, open up the top, reach in & dig around, etc). I got complimented on it the first day I wore it, so it looks cute without looking totally nerdy. A good option for school!

Very roomy, plenty of space for my 15" MacBook pro, and several books. I love it, and have gotten lots of compliments! The extra buckling honestly doesn't bother me. I got this one when my previous Herschel backpack was too small to carry all my board studying books!

The backpack came on time, and I love it! I am in medical school so I use it every day and it is comfortable and holds everything I need easily. The laptop pocket is a nice fuzzy, velvety texture, so I don't even keep a laptop sleeve on anymore! 15 inch Macbook Pro fits like a dream. Thanks Zappos/Herschel!

The backpack is exactly as described. It's extremely durable and well-worth the price. It is bigger than I anticipated but it fits a weekend's worth of clothes, or a laptop and several textbooks. The lining adds color to the design. Anyone interested would be happy to receive it.

Pretty large and comfy (well padded) for a bag, weight distributed evenly. It's also a bag of good quality, and so far it has proved sturdy and waterproof. My only issue is that it is a hassle to access the main compartment. Perhaps a zip on the side of the bag to provide easy access to the main compartment would be a good idea. Overall sleek and classy with no fault.

Love everything about this backpack! The comfort of the straps and additional padding for the lower back is genius. Very stylish as well. Convinced 2 friends on it and they purchased it shortly after.

I am in love with the Apple Polka Dot Little America Herschel! After ordering it, I was worried it might be to intense of a yellow. But when it arrived, I was pleasantly surprised to discover that backpack is more of a subdued lime green color. Couldn't be happier with my purchase!

Excellent bag! It's functional, stylish and durable. The small front compartment is perfect for valuables since it both buttons and zippers. The larger main compartment fits a lot more than you would think and has a safe place to keep a laptop. Very thick fabric and straps. A great buy.

Brands I'd also recommend: Any Herschel Supply products

Beautiful teal color and bag! The inside is super spacious and the laptop sleeve is very handy. The padding on the outside back and straps are comfortable when the bag gets heavy. The only thing I wish it had is a water bottle holder.

The backpack is just what I expected! Stylish and roomy. The leather straps are a great touch. The backpack is the perfect size for traveling. The main compartment and smaller pouch are generously sized. Would definitely recommend.

Love this bag, bought it for the boyfriend but was tempted to keep it myself. It needs to have more compartments inside the main compartment. Seeing as one large pocket everything seems to disappear into. Also, the leather straps that secure it closed seem a bit low quality. Otherwise, love the bag.

The bag is awesome! I can fit everything. Clothes books and college stuff. This is the best college bag there is! The style is great too! It has a laptop holder inside. I have the color in black and the interior design is really stylish. But the most awesome part is that Zappos delivery service is awesome! I order the bag on Sunday night around 8pm. And I applied for free shipping so its around 4-5 shipping business and the bag came on Thursday afternoon! Exactly in 4 days! Zappos also have great sale deals! I couldn't ask more!

I purchased a vintage motorcycle this summer to save money on my commute each day and needed a cool backpack to replace my briefcase. This Herschel ones works out perfectly. It expands enough so I can carry a ton of stuff besides my computer . I constantly get compliments on the style from other people, many of whom are interested in purchasing one themselves. I absolutely love it!

Broke within the first use. The metal finishing where the drawstring meets the bag came undone. The magnetic claps were already showing wear, and speaking of which, are pretty difficult to quickly get in and out of the bag. Functionality-wise this bag just wasn't right for me. I wanted to use casual day travel, but it was too big for what I need. I'm female standing at 5'2" and I feel like I'm going to drown in this bag. I've gotten some compliments though. So it passes in the looks department.

Backpack with great style, huge inside but still fits nicely on a woman's body. Actually exchanged this (for the Herschel Little America Weather Pack in red) because the "leather" straps are obviously imitation leather. This is a smart looking bag but I'd rather pay more for real leather, the fake leather brings the awesomeness factor down. The red bag I exchanged it for has plastic/rubbery straps which are pretty cool looking. Only other con is that the shoulder straps are kind of wide for girls, it would be nice if they were a wee bit thinner. Overall I think this is a pretty fashionable bag that can hold a lot of stuff and it definitely fulfills my needs.
