As much as we love the convenience of a backpack, it can be hard to find a good one — lots are too reminiscent of college days or else so expensive that you might as well spring for a leather purse. Herschel backpacks hit that sweet spot, though. They’re not little-kid-looking, and not so pricey that you feel precious about them. Now, a bunch of them are on sale at Nordstrom, and we went through and found a dozen of our favorites (plus a nice weekend bag).
