To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have no doubt whatsoever that my Pop Quiz backpack is authentic. It’s incredibly solid and well built with Herschel markings on the front sewn-in tag, all zippers, the tag on the right strap and the strap clips. The laptop sleeve and sunglass pocket are lined with a very soft, velvety fabric fabric and the laptop sleeve is very well padded. I was easily able to fit 2 binders and 2 textbooks as well as my laptop in the main compartment. The big front pocket has lots of little organizational pockets for everything from pens to notecards and personal items. I was initially a little concerned because the main zipper was difficult to open, but if I fold back the flap of fabric that covers the zipper then it opens and closes without any issues. If you need a fully functional and durable backpack for school or day trips, you can’t go wrong!!
This is a nice looking backpack but the material is much stiffer then I expected. I haven’t really used it much yet, so I’m hoping the material softens a bit with use. Can’t attest to how it does in rain yet.
Too hard to open zippers, like you really need to put in effort. Impossible to open any of the zippers with one hand. You need two hands, core strength and olympic medal in powerlifting to use this bag. Totally don't recommend for daily use
I had bought a smaller Herschel bag for my son in Kindergarten a couple of years ago. This year it was too small to carry all his school supplies. Went up to this size and it’s perfect for all his notebooks and books! He really loves all the extra pockets.
