Herschel's offerings are great for those who want mountaineering backpacks that won't fail them on the trail. Little America is just right for carrying the important things you'll need on a hike. Water bottles, gear, and clothes will fit in without any problems or need for special packing.

The Herschel Retreat is similar to the Little America backpack but with a sturdier build. This makes the Herchel ideal for carrying a heavier load at the cost of a thicker build. Choose the Herschel if you need to pack some heavy equipment, but if you don't need that you'll find the Little America works just fine.
