I love this backpack! I bought it for commuting to work, and it has been a great investment already. I have it in navy, and it matches all of my work attire or at least blends in. It fits quite a few things and has a laptop sleeve. I do wish it have one or two more pockets on the inside and the straps are a little far apart for my frame but it still works very well. There is a nice pocket in front to fit a few small things and there's a small in the side pocket on the side. It's a great commuter bag and it's also a great weekend retreat bag so it lives up to its name!

Very reliable, sturdy backpack. A little cumbersome to get into quickly because of the drawstrings, but roomy and has a convenient compartment for a couple of pens and a laptop. I have received many compliments on it, which is always a good sign.

I got this backpack as a gift for someone. They love it. They really like the inside lining pattern and the padded straps. I ordered it late in the afternoon and and Zappos had it at my doorstep by noon the next day! If you're considering this backpack, I HIGHLY recommend that you order it from Zappos. On the Herschel Supply website, this same bag was $5 more and they were going to charge me for standard shipping!

Great backpack! Love the laptop insert inside and the main compartment has ample room for my large binder, textbook, notebook, and wallet. Very basic in the inside with no extra pockets except for pens and a pocket on the outside. Great backpack for grad school and have gotten many great compliments!

I bought this and the little America one. Tried both on. I liked the style of the little America one better so I returned this one. This one is a little wider than the little America. I am 5’8”. This, like the little America, would be great to wear about on the airplane, day trips w kiddo, walking to and from work etc.

The size is pretty big, but it's a good kind of big. Very chic and simple. Love that it has a fleece lining for the laptop. Would definitely recommend.

This is my second back pack from Herschel. Fits are perfect for my 10th grade student. Materials are thicker than I expected. Now I understand why my daughter’s friends have these backpacks. Worth to have it.

Such a wonderful bag! Great quality and style. I purchased it for a bag to carry my laptop/paperwork to and from work and it is perfect! I get so many compliments on it too. ??

Looks great and overall quality is very good. However it's not very convenient when you need to get something out of it quickly, it has a small pocket for that but I never use it as it is really small.

The backpack feels sturdy. Love the strap for comfort. My son likes how roomy it is. The drawstring is time consuming where I just suggest not drawing it all the way. Wish the small pocket in front can actually hold pencils, because after putting all his books and folders you can't squeeze pencils in the front. Overall, we are please with it and would recommend this backpack.

Love this backpack! I received this as a Christmas present from my family and use it for hauling my things to the gym and for taking a laptop to and from work. This bag works for both, it looks professional any stylish! The laptop sleeve is well padded and the main compartment has plenty of room. There is not a lot of compartments for zipping away small items but there are a couple of pockets for pens and such. The snaps are easy to open and close quickly and seem durable. Very happy with this purchase!

Great design, quality and durability. Almost purchased the Little America but went with Retreat, as it is really the standard everyday size for carrying books, files, 13" laptop etc. There is a laptop component as described, it is a very nice fleece material pocket.

Beautiful stylish bag, well made, with beautiful contrasting lining. Useful padded laptop compartment. Perfect for school, as long as you don't carry too many books back and forth!

I bought this about a year ago for my boyfriend and it has held up great! I initially bought the Little America but found it to be a bit bulky just for everyday use, this was the perfect size. It's constructed well because I have not seen even one snag or thread out of place. Perfect for a 13" laptop and the lining of that compartment is nice and soft. I love the white and red stripes on the inside as well. It'll hold enough clothes for a weekend get away and I'm sure it works perfectly as a carry-on as well!

Oh dear! I bought this backpack on Zappos two years ago and was so happy with my purchase I totally forgot to write a review. This has been a great bag to me for two years and it still has no signs of wear and tear. The straps are strong, which is essential for student life. I put a ton of stuff in here everyday - MacBook Pro, gym shoes, books, notebooks, lunches... and it all fits! I also really love the style, which is a step up from basic backpacks. I am a grad student so I want to look a little fancier than the students that I am teaching and this fits the bill. The leather straps are really cool and I love the rust color.

I love this bag! It's a little bit smaller than the Great America bag from Herschel, which is perfect because I'm a petite lady. The straps are great on my shoulders carrying heavy books. My only complaint is there are no pockets inside, but I knew that from reading reviews of this product. If you're going to buy this bag I recommend also buying a few zippered pouches to keep small things like keys, your wallet and headphones in so you're not searching for an hour every time you reach into your bag. A solid purchase overall.

This is a great backpack. It is sturdy but not too heavy and large enough to easily fit a laptop computer. It is also stylish and I love the red striped lining.

Love this bag! It looks awesome. Best of all it's comfortable to wear and even looks great when it is full books and a lunch.
