As a drummer, I am always considering comfort and back safety when shopping for a bag. And then, I of course, consider style. Herschel has managed to tackle all of these concerns of mine in an stylish new line of bags. I bought my Survey Backpack online at Karmaloop. It is a canvas scout bag with signature polyester lining; flap closure with leather straps and magnetic snaps; and has adjustable mesh backed shoulder straps. I just recently saw them for sale at Urban Outfitters and I am pretty sure you can get them on Amazon now too.
Herschel sent us one of their bigger bags, The Little America, for review for the mag. Our star photographer, Bex Wade, took it home for a test drive. Here is her review of the bag so far: “It’s a little on the large side however it is really well made. Sturdy bag. I like the fact that it has a padded laptop section that is plush. The aesthetic is great. A well thought out bag. When you are wearing it, and it’s got something heavy in it, it feels like you are getting a big hug. It’s my new girlfriend. ”
