Uve had my eye on the heritage in black for months now, saw that same review, and now im hesitant about the leater bottom, feel like going with the classic...dont know if i should risk that, $10 more and the quality might not be so great?

Idk, what you guys think, classic or heritage?

I've had both and Herschel use better quality materials and they look better overall. Jansport is cool but Herschel >

I've got a black jansport and a black classic from Herschel right now, Herschel is better quality. Even though they're both plain backpacks I think the Herschel looks better too, the hints of brown on the straps look nice along with the small tag on the front of the backpack.

For me it comes down to what your gonna use it for.
I'm down with both brands.

Herschel has nicer design. So if your trying to have a good looking bag for class or for your laptop or something.

Jansport is better quality and has a life time warranty so it's good for everyday use and is more versatile.

I usually just throw them in the small sleeve or put them in my pocket. There's a phone sleeve in the big sleeve, so you could put your pencils there, or your phone/ipod/mp3 to listen to music out the headset jack.

edit: yeah I'm just hoping none of them have any herschel.

well the retail prices are the same. But there's stores like theAttic which had a 30% off sale. And on Karmaloop you can use promo codes too. Sorry, I didnt mean its priced cheaper, you just can get it for cheaper with use of promo codes and special offers.

The Herschel back pack with the brown bottom looked ugly. The leather on that looked too tan + fake pleather. There was no texture on it. It came up way too high.
