Herschel Supply Co.® Settlement Backpack

Herschel Supply Co.® Settlement Backpack is rated 4.2 out of 5 by 5.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect Size I wanted a Herschel backpack (they are so beautiful!) to carry around my things and most importantly my computer. The big question I always had was.. could it fit my 15" macbook pro? And YES! it does, you have an inch extra so that's fine. The size is great, because I own another backpack from this brand and it's kind of huge (they sold it to my bf as "the backpack that fits my size of computer")... So this is a pretty good size to carry around your computer, notebooks and book.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent color, great details including POLKA DOTS, durable I needed a new schoolbag anyway, but this one caught my eye immediately when I saw it in person. (It's a brighter green than the photo indicates.) It is the perfect size--not too big, but large enough for a laptop and several notebooks with room for extra books and a water bottle. It's much easier on the back than a shoulderbag, and the fabric and stitching feel very durable. The one complaint I have with it is the zippers, which feel like they might catch easily, but overall it's adorable and surprisingly affordable and perfect for all of the wear and tear to which I subject my everyday bag!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Style Meets Quality Craftsmanship This backpack is a great find. Great polka dot pattern on an understated, simple design. The zippers are a little rough when opening, but nothing a rubbing of wax paper can't fix. The size is great, not too large for my 5' stature. The padding is not wonderful for a laptop, but that's what a laptop cover is for. The inside cell phone pocket is a little small for an iphone4S in a case (fits perfectly without a case). Looking forward to getting a lot of use of of it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from CUTE... Funky smell - but I'll get over it! Dang CUTE! Complemented every time I use it! Using it as a baby/toddler bag so my hands are free to corral a busy little one. FUNKY smell... I am sure it will wear off after a bit of use. I might try to wash it to see if it goes away.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointed I recently purchased this backpack because I do a lot of walking on my commute and am pregnant, so wanted something more comfortable than a tote bag. I have been pretty disappointed with this purchase. First, the zippers are too big and don't open and close easily. I have to take the entire bag off my back just to access any of the pockets. Also, there are not any interior zipper pockets/compartments as the description states, there is an area to hold a laptop and that's it - so anything small you put in sinks to the bottom and is hard to find. Lastly, I wore the bag one day and it rained, upon getting wet the stench was overwhelming. My bag smelled like a dirty wet dog - very disappointing. I do not recommend this to anyone - it looks cute but not comfortable or functional.
