    Details

    Made from durable waxed canvas, this traditional backpack has a laptop sleeve and seat pad to protect your tech and your tush.

    When you've had enough of over-hyped accessories and space-aged fabrics, reach for the Fjallraven No, 21 Medium Rucksack. The simple, square design of this durable backpack will appeal to your sense of minimalism. This pack isn't for the anti-internet, as the laptop sleeve has a padded bottom to protect your tech. If you're heading off for an alpine picnic, the specific pocket holds upright your thermos of scotch-laced chamomile tea so you can have a warm, chill-fighting drink when you reach your destination. Don't worry about bringing a camp chair, as this pack has a removable seat pad to cushion your tush when you're sitting on uneven ground. Side pockets will hold your water bottles when you're hiking or your umbrella when your adventures take on an urban flavor.

    Work Bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    For me, this pack will only function as something I can use to and from work here at good ol' Backcountry.com. Quality materials and very clean aesthetics made it an attractive buy for me. I can't see it being functional out hiking/trekking, but as a work/casual bag it is awesome. It fits my 15" laptop just about perfectly. I am 6'1" and do not like how short the shoulder straps actually are. I almost have the leather part of the straps hitting my shoulders which is kinda weird.

    Work Bag

    Needs pockets

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I was hoping to take this on an international trip, but found it won't fit my needs for travel. There is only one access point to the bag at the top, which means if you need anything, you have to take the bag off, undo everything and dig around in the interior. There are no side pockets or top pockets for easy access. The inside also lacks pockets for organization and storage. The fabric on the bag is fantastic, and I really wish it would work for my needs. If you need a bag that's pretty basic and looks nice, with some added durability, this would be a great choice. If you need pockets and organization, I would look elsewhere.

    Not what I expected

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    The pack is well made and looks really good but isn't as functional as I thought it would be. I was expecting a small pack but its really hard to use the main compartment. It is really narrow and hard to put things in it and get them out. Also, the plum is a lot more red than I was expecting. The next size bigger would probably be a much for functional back.

    Poorly conceived pack

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size

    Looked good on paper, is built with quality materials, but the design and execution is flawed. I really can't figure out what this pack is for. It's pretty small--barely enough room for a hiking day trip. If you put a bag of food in here, it's going to get crushed. Your jacket likely won't fit. The side pockets are too small to fit water bottles--if you can jam one in, it encroaches on the main pack space. The outside pocket--doesn't close or latch in any way so important items are loose and may fall out. The inside of the pack is a mess--2 sleeves, an inside free flying "pocket", an additional upper hanging pocket with zipper--all nice ideas but when put together, the inside of this bag is clutterred. Combined with the draw cord closure device, it's a pain to get into and out of this bag. Would be forgiveable if there was more space, but there isn't. On the outside of the pack, superficially it looks pretty good. The leather and g1000 fabric are nice. The closure system for the 2 leather straps is awkward and doesn't feel particularly sturdy. The "hood" on top is cool but I feel like it should have a pocket on top on the outside for quick access.

    So to sum up, this seems like a pack that is designed to look small and sleak on a person walking around the city with just a laptop and a few papers in their bag, but would be entirely inappropriate for anything else, especially anything outdoors where you'll need a big water bottle, space to stow food/jacket, and/or need quick access to essentials.

    The appearance of this pack seems to suggest an outdoor use in mind, but it's kind of dishonest in that way. Still, even urban adventurers need to stow a water bottle. I just don't understand this product. It's too bad too, because the materials really are quite nice. It seems like manufacturers are rushing to put out "throwback" products that remind us of the old days when things were made out of cotten, metal and leather--which I appreciate--but for some reason no one is putting any thought into the design. Almost as if they think if they just make something that "looks vintage" that's good enough. In my mind, going back to basics means getting the basics right--a good water bottle pocket, an uncluttered spacious interior, smartly placed pockets that hold things securely, etc.

    well crafted

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I'm a sucker for mid-century and Scandinavian design, and Fjallraven's Medium Rucksack speaks straight to that sensibility. The design is simple, well crafted, and infuses a sense of authenticity and history by maintaining elements from the first Fjallraven packs that were stitched-up over 50 years ago. The classic G-1000 waxed canvas feels exactly the way good outdoor fabric should feel. It's durable, water resistant, and my favorite part is that it breaks-in and takes on more character with age.
