Using as a diaper bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I wanted a backpack to carry around when I'm with my kids and this works great. I typically use the laptop sleeve to store diapers and wipes, and have plenty of room for blankets, change of clothes, snacks, etc. It would be nice if it had an interior pocket for my wallet, but that wasn't a dealbreaker for me. Really nice backpack.

Not My Style

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

I ordered this based on the size, which was ice. I just found it to be too boxy and not my style

Great quality

    Got this as a gift for my brother after our puppy destroyed his old pack. He loved the heather color, the padding on the straps, and the big pockets and laptop sleeve.

    Very nice!

      Love this backpack. Have had Hershel backpacks in the past, but none like this one. Always wanted a Hershel backpack that had pockets in the front. This backpack also has another pocket inside with a zipper and makes storing things a lot more convenient. Every Herschel backpack I’ve had in the past lasts me a really long time and this one seems that it will too! The straps are nicely padded making it comfy to wear and the fabric is thick. Would buy again.

      Perfect Size

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      Previously, i have owned the larger 19.5L Backpack. Although that worked great for weekend occasions, this pack is great for everyday use. I'm able to consolidate all of my stuff and erase my crazy bag lady image. It's great quality and looks really nice.

      Cute!

      • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

      This backpack is SOOO cute, but it's not really what I was looking for. The shape of the bag is tall and narrow and it's not very practical for a college student. You can comfortably fit maybe two text books and some notebooks, but getting your laptop in as well is a squeeze. I had a hard time deciding to return this because it's so cute, but practically won over in the end.

      Perfect backpack

        Daughter carries this everywhere instead of a purse or handbag. It suits her busy, constantly on-the-go lifestyle, and it looks good and wears well.

        Cute, durable, and stylish!

        I ordered the forest night/white rugby stripe/tan and I absolutely love the color and style of this backpack. It's very spacious on the inside and I really like the red stripped color and material of the interior fabric. I have a 13 inch laptop and it fit perfectly inside the laptop compartment on the inside with/without my laptop sleeve on it. The padding around the laptop compartment seems very thick as well, so I feel secure putting my laptop in the backpack without it's sleeve. The fabric on the outside is very sturdy, and I really feel that this backpack will last me a good while. I'm also satisfied with the price, because I paid $15 less than the actually cost on the official site. It's an overall great purchase and I've already gotten 4 compliments since I got it in the mail yesterday.

        cool
