Reviewers like these things about the Herschel Heritage

  • A lot of users thought that the Herschel Heritage bag is generally considered a casual kind of backpack and more commonly associated with teenagers and university students.
  • Other users found that it complemented the business look but kept a relaxed and down to earth vibe.
  • Reviewers noted that the bag is very light and easy to swing around the shoulder.
  • Other reviewers said that the zips are an interesting feature of the bag.
  • Several users observed the bag straps are adjustable and have a comfortable ventilated-mesh cushioned lining.
  • Many of those who have tried the backpack thought that the inner lining adds more contrast to the bag and comes in either paisley or candy stripe patterns depending on the outer colour and season releases.
  • They also mentioned that the bag has a document compartment within the main compartment.
  • Others also said that the backside of the bag is padded.
  • Many testers noted that the bag features an internal key clip in the front compartment.
  • They also mentioned that it is able to fit everything needed, and still have enough room for more.
  • They also noted that the bag is elasticated so it helps to keep important notes and documents upright and conformed to the back padding.

Reviewers don't like these things

  • A user said that the bag's lightweight material makes the bag a bit flimsy and fails to hold its shape when empty or half full.
  • Another user thought that the flap that conceals the zip definitely could make it more difficult to open with one hand.
