Herschel Supply Co.® Backpack is rated 3.9 out of 5 by 18.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Look, Somewhat Poor Quality I got this bag in Feb 2013 in mint and unfortunately as of August it is already falling apart. Very cute (on the small side for sure but perfect for what I was needing).

Rated 4 out of 5 by from great color! I'm always a Herschel fan. I was so happy to receive this backpack with light blue/yellow color. I really love the colors, however, it made me look like a little girl...5 years old maybe... And the backpack can get dirty easily, light color nightmare!! Other than that, the size is perfect for everyday use, school, travelling, weekends or just whenever you like.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Love it! I love the comfort of wearing this backpack! I really love mint/orange exterior and the striped lining inside and it's pretty spacious. It's a little too small for my 15'' inch laptop though. The color is really nice but it's so light that it's obvious when the backpack gets even slightly dirty.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too small I was so excite to finally get this backpack. I was especially excited because of the colors, but the backpack is way to small to carry anything. It looks like it's big enjoy for a 5 year old, not a college student. Sadly I'm going to return. Such a shame because I was really looking forward to using it. The colors are really nice and it is really good quality, just too small. :(

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Cute but not as well made as advertised This bag is cute and comfortable, but I've been disappointed by the quality. The fabric seems a little cheap, and the zippers are clunky and the zipper teeth are too big and jagged. The zipper pull fell off in my hand this morning, and it's been just over a week. The inside is nice and I like the laptop pocket. The straps also feel like poor quality fabric and standard cheap plastic buckles which slip around. Overall, I expected a better bag for the price and for all the hype about Herschel's quality.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Falling apart at the seams I bought this backpack last year in teal to use as a diaper bag. Within one month of light-use the threading around the shoulder straps was falling apart. Thinking it was just the backpack I purchased was flawed, I exchanged it for a purple one. Yet again it is literally falling apart at the seams. I do not overload it or even carry heavy items in it. Sad it is so poorly constructed because I love the size and style.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Gorgeous to look at- not very functional I ordered this to carry a laptop, but the zippers all stick and don't work smoothly. It is difficult to get things in and out. It is a very good looking pack, but lacking in functionality.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from looks cute but.... too bad I love the look but after only using for a month, mine got ripped. I'm not using it too rough, but it just keeps ripping into pieces. Now (after 3 months) the whole front top part is ripped and can't use it. For the price I paid, I was expecting a decent product. It just too bad!!
