Colour Name: Navy/Tan PU
I like the style when you're not wearing it, but unfortunately,it just isn't the right shape for a human's back and ends up looking silly. No matter how you adjust the straps, and what height you wear it, there will always be a gap at the top between your shoulders and the back, so it looks like it's sagging away from your body. It is hard to find a photo showing this - presumably Hershel have realised and so all media shots are of the bag on one shoulder, or from directly behind so that you can't see the obvious poor ergonomics. This one probably demonstrates it best:

Essentially, no matter how hard you try, it will stick out behind you like a cheap Schoolbag from Tesco.

Other comments: Be aware that this is a duffle bag within a magnetic flap. The main toggle only closes to about 3 inches, so anything small could easily fall out if the bag ends up upside down (for example in the back of a car). This design means that it is a bit of a pain to get in and out of quickly, and despite the large capacity of the bag, you can't open it wide enough to put large items in as you would be able to with a zip bag.

The bag also has a headphone flap, but the media pocket inside is far to small to put anything in that is larger than an iPod nano. I can't get my Nexus 5 in it, and I'm fairly certain that even an iPhone 4/5 wouldn't fit, meaning it would be floating around your bag. Remember how I said anything small could escape easily? An iPhone would be the perfect candidate to get out through the duffle-gap. Really, what planet are these designers living on?

I didn't expect such poor design on such an expensive product. IT's like they just manufactured the first thing they drew without testing if it works. Herschel's visual designers should spend a day at the Dakine offices so that we can have something that looks cool AND works well.

Carries just about everything, all your books and a macbook too.
Though it has its faults it maybe pretty but it is fragile sometimes the stitching may poke out of place so it needs to be cut every now and again but so far its been very good.

lots of space, good for carrying my laptop around etc. quite expensive for what it actually is, but hey.. thats branding for you.

it has a front pouch with a built in clip for your keys/keyring which is quite handy. inside is a felt (or soft material) sleeve compartmental divider for your laptop. There are also two small pockets attached to the upper sides of the inside of the bag that can hold valuables etc making them easy to get to, as this bag only opens at the top so you may have to dig around for things you need at the bottom.

I do like this bag and and had a few compliments about it. it does also make carrying a lot, much easier. so thumbs up from me

Bought for my daughter. This was the best price I could find and it feels like a good quality item. The wrapping was ridiculous, very wasteful as there was so much of it. My daughter loves it. It has a great capacity, a waterproof lining, strong seams and stitching

Beautiful bag, very large and the laptop pocket is the perfect size for my 15.6" laptop. The quality in the stitching and materials is fantastic and although that is reflected in the price this is a seriously well made and hard wearing bag that should last for years to come. I've gotten so many compliments about this bag everybody really loves it I couldn't recommend it more I'm so glad I bought it as it was a spontaneous purchase.

This bag is superb! Loads of space for all my books, trust me that's a lot! (Around 4 ring binders + 2 textbooks + a couple of books, a pencil case and a drink)

The fleece bit at the back is helpful. I carry my tablet and keyboard to school and I don't need to worry about it being crushed by textbooks while in the bag!

I had the heritage with the leather bottom, but after a year it was ripped beyond repair. The little america doesn't have this and it seems to be a lot more durable. The flap is great at keeping out the rain, and it's protected my stuff from the godawful English weather.

It's not THAT big, it's only a bit larger than the heritage, though a bit wider.

A great purchase, and worth the money.

Took this backpack on holiday this year and was very impressed. Looks great and is made from high quality material. The main bag is deep and spacious with a laptop pocket that is the softest thing on earth. The top toggle and magnetic buckles mean the bag is pretty secure. The back and straps have a breathable foam padding thats gloriously soft and makes wearing the bag for extended periods great. All in all I would recommend this bag.

Bought as a gift for my boyfriend, and about 10 seconds after he got it out the plastic around the headphone port came off making me wonder if it's a fake. After looking at the bag properly I'm not sure it is, although the red and white striped colouring is a little different from my little America bag - bought from a shop, and the threading around the Herschel badge quickly became frayed. Boyfriend is happy with it regardless and didn't want to return it. If it was mine I would have!
