If you’re like me and everyone else in San Francisco, you’ve been eyeing one of those classic Herschel backpacks with the leather straps. Structured with impeccable detailing, it’s the perfect bag to lug your laptop to the office, or even to throw in some clothes and a bottle of wine for a spontaneous weekend getaway. In San Francisco, the “It Bag” is definitely a backpack.
If you’re also like me and spent way too many dollars last week on turquoise Navajo jewelry during your trip to the Grand Canyon (or on pizza and Mexican food, which is the usual drain on my wallet) the $89.99 price tag for the Little America Backpack can seem quite steep.
Thus, I was incredibly stoked when I stumbled on this version from the Men’s sale section at Oldnavy.com. It’s actually much prettier in person, the canvas has more of a matte finish. It has the same mesh straps and generously padded laptop compartment as the Herschel bag. For only $24.99 on sale, the Old Navy Men’s Canvas Rucksack is a total steal. Comparable quality, for almost a quarter of the price? I don’t mind if I do.
*Bonus - Old Navy has a sale today where you can get 30% off with the promo code SURPRISE. That brings the price of the backpack down to $17.49 - grab one before it’s gone!*
