Herschel Supply Co. knows not only what we want in a backpack (great design, fun colorways, a timeless silhouette), but also what we need (cushy straps, plenty of pockets, and enough room to store our laptop, helmet, and all those bagged snacks for later). Never overbearing with prints either, Herschel's simple contrast buckles and zipper pulls are just enough eye candy to turn heads.
The Woodside holiday '13 collection extends the brand's signature minimal aesthetic, but these made-for-winter backpacks get a proper update with knitted pockets. And, coated with poly lining and a touch of suede, the carryalls are certainly strong enough to lug all of our wintertime essentials.
