A weekend retreater or an everyday cargo carrier.

Say yes to last minute plans and pack your Herschel Supply Duffel Bag. Its 2380 cubic inches of storage space gives you ample room for all the gear needed for three days at the cabin or some evening laps at the pool. Although carry-on sized, rest easy checking the Novel duffel—the heavy canvas exterior, padded lining, and waterproof zipper can take the shuffling and tossing of the most careless baggage claim worker. Herschel's signature shoe compartment keeps the crud from the bottom of shoes from smearing on to your neatly folded clothes and the coated cotton/polyester lining wipes clean for quick cleaning. Stash your headphones or a book in the internal mesh pocket for entertainment on the go. Keep your Novel duffel packed and be ready for whatever life brings your way.

Classy Bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I absolutely love the simplicity and class of this duffel . I've always loved Herschel bags and it's great for a weekend trip. I really love the added "shoe" pocket, though I use it for other things. Super great!

perfect size

    perfect size for a weekend bag


    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I love this bag! It's the perfect weekender bag. the material is very nice, the zippers burly and it's really deep so you have plenty of room for a few outfits, makeup, toiletries, shoes and some extras. I would recommend this bag for sure.

    The gift was perfect

      My college grandson loved the gift. Unfortunately, during the order process I was not told you would not deliver to a P.O. Box, so I had to drive an hour and a half to pick it up.

      I don’t understand how the delivery inconvenience is an appropriate reflection of the product’s low rating.

      Bigger than I thought

        This is a fantastic bag, it is bigger than I thought, but thats not a bad thing. Used it for a trip to Seattle for the weekend and it was perfect.


        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This bag is great. Made from good material, and constructed well. It is a really nice travel bag and it looks good too.

        Waste of money!!

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

        Was super excited to finally use my Herschel bag on a mini vacation to San Diego just for one of the zippers to break off the first time using it! Super disappointed because I heard this is a great brand so I was bummed when a zipper broke so easily. I was probably better off buying a non-name brand one that looked the same from Target

        Excellent travel bag & love Back Country

        I attend a lot of conferences and wanted something to pack for 2-3 days away. This is a great size and the material is really stunning. I wanted a Herschel bag from the get go but luckily I bought it from Back Country which offered free, SUPER FAST shipping and a great discount on last season's patterns.

        Update: Still love the bag despite the squeaking. For my use I should've gotten a larger duffel, though. I pack shoes, hair crap, makeup, books, laptop and it's full; my garments go in a garment bag over my shoulder. This is definitely an overnight bag not a four-day conference bag which is what I use it for.

        Does the shoulder strap squeak? That is a consistent review I've been seeing on other sites

        YES IT SQUEAKS CONSTANTLY!!! It is so embarrassing when walking through hotels / airports / etc.

        Squeaky strap...no problem!
        Fill a 2 gal. bucket with 1 part baseball glove oil, 1 part linseed oil and 1 part tung oil.
        Submerse entire bag [w/ strap], and let soak min. 12 hr.
        Pull and place on screen, [over] for 'drip' into bucket for 12 hr.+-
        Take 'cheese cloth' and wipe, buff bag, strap inside and out.
        Repeat with baseball glove...Spring training's only 4 mo. away!
        Works every time!
        Look Ma...NO SQUEAKS! and
        Soft as a baby's bottom!
