Detailed Classic

Here’s another look at a classic silhouette offered by Herschel Supply Co. I like the Heritage Backpack for its attention to detail and improvements to a simple, timeless backpack.

The woven tags on the side and front pocket gives it extra detail and provides a nice contrast from the rest of the bag. This version has a blue lash-down point made of rubber with small indentations used to create a design in itself. I also like that the pull tabs has the Herschel brand name embossed and includes a faux leather attachment. The exterior appears reinforced at multiple points throughout the bag and feels sturdy with it on. The back has a thin padding but this wasn’t problematic. On the plus side, the shoulder straps are padded thicker and perforated on the inside which gives it a nice touch.

Herschel Heritage main compartment

Inside the bag, the main compartment and front pocket has Herschel’s signature striped fabric liner. This is good in case anything spills in your bag you’ll have a little more time to clean it before it shows on the exterior. The main compartment has a 15″ laptop sleeve and a small internal media pocket which can be used for a battery charger, cables, or a mobile music player if you plan to use the headphone port opening found above it. I typically don’t use it because I like to keep my music player in my hand or jean pocket. With the way the base is constructed, you could probably fit more than the 21.5 liters suggested — 2-3 medium sized books, laptop, and a sweater should still leave room for more smaller items. The front pocket has a key clip you could use, but I also like to keep these things closer to me.

This backpack is well-constructed and has a minimal, yet thoughtful design to include everyday activities. The Heritage Backpack is still a popular bag and is flexible for any use. As with a lot of Herschel Supply Co. products, you can find a variety of colors and limited releases. Find it on Amazon!
