Herschel Supply Co. Autumn/Winter 2011 collection

August 2, 2011

Herschel Suppy Co. are a family run Canadian outdoors brand that was set up with the goal of bringing well-designed quality built bags to market. The brand takes its inspiration from a number of places with vintage mountaineering, American heritage, world travel and fashion all being a part of what makes the brand what it is today.

The ethos that runs through the company is the aim to reinvent classic products with modern shapes, fit and feel, with fine regard for detail and the ideal that their products compliment the wearer’s passion for individuality and personal style in a new way. The brand say that they’re “About our past, present and future”.

Products are all about practicality and functionality – the hard-wearing materials like the cotton-poly used for main sections and the leather detailing and sturdy hardwear all add up to luggage that can be used in a variety of circumstances. So whether it’s for a weekend adventure in the great outdoors, or simply for a journey to the office in a more urban environment there’s no doubt a bag style perfect for the task.

    some nice gear, especially like the final bag with the shoe compartment!

    Nicely done site, brand and goods; but am I correct in believing this is a “new, old brand”. ie. a new label that poses as one that’s been around for a long time with an actual heritage?

    I have to temper your enthusiasm a little bit when it comes to this brand, it’s really one to see in person before you buy. The ‘leather’ detailing is faux and very cheap feeling, and the nylon type fabric that the bags are made of is so flimsy as I imagine would fall to pieces, honestly these bags are for those who want the look. If you want an actual hard wearing bag I would try the various small mountaineering brands that exist in the states, usually they are affordable and near invincible.

      Cheers Luke, that’s a real shame. I’ve seen the bags on the shelves before and always thought they were nice, but I’ll admit to not having given them my full attention. Faux leather? There’s really no need for that, especially when other brands at a similar price can manage it, they’d be better off just going for cotton canvas instead. The next time I’m in one of their stockists I’ll take a proper look, sounds like a brand I’ve lost interest in already though…

        They are a bit shit fella, a mate of mine’s got one (daft twat) and it’s nothing special. From a couple of foot away they look alright but get ’em in your hands and they’re well sub par.

        Shame, they’re decent looking.

    shame about what luke is saying but good advice non the less. someone in my office has one of the backpacks in red, she seems really pleased as was talking about getting another.
