My backpack came in the mail a few days early, and I'm so happy about it! This bag is a true khaki color, which the picture doesn't give justice too.
I haven't been out in the rain with it yet, but the material looks moderately weather resistant. It feels pretty sturdy, and fits comfortably when I wear it.
Like mentioned in other reviews, the straps bind with magnets which I actually adore! There is also a little hidden zipper for the external pocket.
To feel reassured, know that the magnets are sturdy. Don't get the impression this backpack has poor enclosure.
I've had a bag with functioning straps and it was a pain getting things in and out over and over again, so I appreciate an alternative way to pack up.
If you're not convinced with the magnets, there is a drawstring hidden away at the mouth so nothing sneaks out-- despite the backpack having so much space inside.
The Little America is a very roomy bag, and proves to be an exceptional choice for collage students who are hauling books around and their other supplies and necessities.
The laptop pouch is a great addition too. I will say however, it is not a true fit for a 17 inch computer. I use a 15 in MacBook Pro, and it's the perfect size for this bag.
All in all, the Little America Backpack by Herschel Supply is an excellent buy. It's a beautiful bag that performs as well as it looks.
Since I've bought it, I've noticed more and more people around the city sporting them around too. Both men and women seem to be enjoying it as much as myself.
It's a gorgeous backpack, and I'm stoked to get more use out it!
