The Herschel Little America and the Herschel Retreat are both wonderful pack choices for the casual or weekend trip. Both bags appear to be advertised by the manufacturer as "mountaineering backpacks," but appear to be better suited for indoor use (or simply as day packs), with their comfortable silhouettes, low-volume compartments and stylish, but decidedly non-heavy-duty canvass material.

The main distinction between the Herschel Little America and the Herschel Retreat is the latter's more "streamlined" appearance. While the Little America appears to feature a greater volume and carrying capacity than the Retreat, the Retreat backpack includes a draw-cord cinch and strap-detailed top flap, which contribute to its more compact overall structure.

I would totally recommend it! My backache is gone and I’m surprised every time how much fits in it if you know how to compartmentalize. The design is timeless so I intend to keep it for a long time to come!

Overall, this is a great backpack for students, travellers, and even the fashion-savvy worker. It has a very good size to carry whatever you like, as well as a padded laptop compartment.
