With travel restrictions remaining in place in North America, chances are you will be venturing around your hometown much more this Fall/Winter with walking and cross-country ski trails plenty. With jackets, gloves, cellphones, and water bottles ready to accompany your adventure, there is no better way to carry your gear than with a Herschel Supply Co. backpack and we have two that you’re going to love!
For the minimalist, who just wants a lightweight and practical backpack to accompany you during the day, there is not much better than the Miller. Available in every colorway your heart could desire including Blackberry wine to Arrowood Crosshatch yellow and even Pumpkin spice, this bag is designed for the day trip warrior.
The Miller is all about duality with its two-way zippered enclosure, dual top carrying handles and even dual water bottle pockets, in fact, we like this bag two times more than others we have reviewed. There is also some welcome attention to detail we expect from Herschel such as a very comfortable air mesh shoulder padding which makes the bag great to carry for long periods as well as the classic signature striped liner and even space for a 15-inch laptop. Best of all, you also get a convenient quick access front storage pocket, perfect for storing those items you need fast access to like your cellphone and wallet. This truly is the ultimate day trip bag.
“There is also a plethora of brilliant additions that make this bag more than your average bear”
For those needing a more rugged offering for weekend trips or camping then the aptly titled Travel Backpack is for you. Made from Herschel’s own 1680D Cordura Ballistic material plus a tonal black camo fabric liner and leather accent label, this bag looks great. The Travel backpack is all about versatility and it shows with its three main compartments outfitted with a variety of organizers for devices and in-flight essentials.
First, you get a generous main compartment complete with storage sleeves for cables, jewelry, and more. This is paired with a padded and fleece-lined 15″ laptop compartment and even our favorite – a signature shoe compartment, meaning a change of footwear is now within arms reach. There is also a plethora of brilliant additions that make this bag more than your average bear. You also get a concealed passport-sized pocket on the outside of the bag, a hidden shoulder strap pocket for your earphones, and even two side pockets, one of which is a mesh water bottle holder.
Last but certainly not least is an addition we will welcome when we take to the skies again – an Airmesh luggage trolley sleeve, that allows you to store the backpack safely against your carry-on suitcase’s handles without fear of it slipping off. The cherry on the cake is the reinforced YKK zippers which means, no unfortunate zipper breaks and your change of underwear spilling onto airport floors mid-walk.
Herschel Supply Co. continues their tradition of creating high quality, versatile, and most importantly durable carryalls that can accompany you on whatever adventure falls your way and for that reason, it is our bag of choice here at One Cut.
