Why We Like The Fjallraven Kaipak 38L Backpack

Using the mountainous fjords of Sweden as both its inspiration and testing grounds, Fjallraven designs all of its packs with durability in mind, and the Kaipak 38 Backpack is no exception. The Kaipak is made with Fjallraven's burly G-1000 Heavy Duty Eco fabric, a rugged combination of recycled polyester and organic cotton fibers. The pack implements a ruggedly simple design with an adjustable top lid, top-load design, and a single zippered pocket along the front of the pack. The sides of the pack are equipped with two stretch mesh pockets for water bottles, while two zippered hip belt pockets keep any snacks and navigation tools close at hand. The main compartment is large enough to carry gear for either big day hikes, or light and fast overnight backpacking trips. Side compression straps and gear loops keep additional equipment secure.


  • Durable backpack for fast-and-light overnighters and hefty day hikes
  • G-1000 Heavy Duty Eco fabric is earth-friendly and tough
  • Rain cover included for additional weather protection
  • Adjustable top lid with pockets organizes contents easily
  • Side compression straps, trekking pole loops, and ice axe loops for added gear storage
  • Item #FJR0057

Almost perfect

I really like this backpack. It is hard wearing and comfortable to wear Spacious top lid pocket and big and useful front zippered pocket. So why 4 stars.... Hip belt pockets are way to small ( could be bigger or stretchy). But the biggest design error in my opinion is how they attached top lid to the backpack. When the backpack is not fully loaded there is a gap between the top lid and the back of the backpack. Not practical or nice looking. Water or dirt can get into the backpack. Shame I am unable to attache the photos but look it up on the internet some users mentioned it as well. This backpack would be great If Fjallraven would address these two "errors" and use a new Bergsell fabric.

So excited to use it!

I am so excited to use this pack. I have tested it just a little bit. The fit is great. I have the larger 75L Kaika and have been a big fan of it. The same great comfort in the shoulder and waist straps exists for the Kaipak. I intend to use it for daypacking into bear country for fishing etc. it is great for an extended day hike, where are you need extra gear for variable weather conditions. I love the fact that it comes with the rain shell as well.

Simple design, durable, good details, bizarre, painful fit

I wanted to love this pack. The material, simple design and construction are great. There are smart details for ice tools or hiking poles. I can make it work with a bladder. It doesn’t look like I’m trying to conquer Everest or set any speed records, and that’s wonderful. The color options are wonderfully subtle. It’s tough as nails. But, the fit is bizarre. I’m 5’9” and weigh about 140lbs, with a 31” actual waist. So, I’m thin and pretty fit. The waist belt on this cinches all the way down, and is barely tight enough for my 31” waist. Yet, the sternum strap is nearly maxed out on my 46” chest. And, the minimum torso length for this pack would have to be approximately 21”. My torso is about 19”, and this pack will rub a hole in the top of my coccyx bone area because it’s so long, and the shoulder straps are not adjustable. It’s as if the designer built it for someone who is tall, with average to obese waist, and the tiniest chest and shoulders ever seen on a human. If you’re 5’10” or taller, aren’t particularly fit, and have strangely narrow shoulders, it could be a great pack for you.
