    A Great Backpack all in all

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I've been a major fan of this brand and always been wanting to get one of these backpacks. I got one for myself and for a friend, and we love it. We are a matching team and we rock it around campus. It's the perfect size for just bringing little things like my wallet, snacks, and my water bottle. If you're looking for a backpack for everyday use, I recommend this!

    So cute!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    These are all the rage right now in any high school, so I snagged two to give to both of my nieces before they sold out completely! They are so cute and not only that, but they are practical! They fit everything you would need for school work, books, etc. And the pack material is super durable, just like Fjallraven is typically known for.
    I highly recommend this pack!
    Note: The forest green color is a bit more grey/green than a true green. Super cute - more neutral - color choice!

    Perfect for work or travel!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I love this pack! It's perfect as my work tote, but also doubles as my travel tote. I receive so many compliments on it. The straps are small, but comfortable and I've had no issues with durability. This is my favorite go to bag!

    Love it!

      I recently bought this backpack for an internship I started in a bigger city. I've loved the look of these bags for a while, and I'm so glad I caved and finally got one! The main area is super roomy to store everything I need for the day (notebooks, lunch bag, etc.) without looking too bulky like my old 16 L North Face backpack did. Plus the front pocket is perfect for quick grab items like my phone and keys. And I've already gotten a couple compliments on it too!

      Everyday Backpack

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I love my Kanken. Plain and simple. It's a great everyday bag. I use it to tote my work stuff, heading to a weekend workout, as my carry-on, etc. The fabric is super durable and the bag itself is extremely functional and comfortable to carry.

      Bigger Better Kanken

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I literally have every single one of the Kanken sizes (I'm obsessed). And I love this one because it fits so much! It's got room for everything but doesn't look like a suitcase, like some big backpacks do. Would for sure buy again!

      Great backpack for back to school!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      I bought this for back to school and the kids all think they're awesome. It's just a handy little pack that works perfectly for school and small trips around town.

      Cutest Backpack Ever!

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      This backpack is perfect for day trips around a city. It's a great size, and looks super modern. I ordered the Orchid color, and it totally pops in person. Highly recommend!

      You'll Get One Eventually

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I feel that at this point you can't step outside in a city and not see at least one person rocking one of these. There's definitely a good reason too. These feel super comfortable and very durable, and manage to maintain a sleek and modern fit and design. I feel like backpack companies have been pulling off the same uninspired junk for ages now, and it's nice to see someone shake things up with such a nice design. I can't resist, you can't resist. Fjallraven forever.

      Best all around bags I've ever had.

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I started out my Fjallraven journey with a Mini Kanken and it's AWESOME, but I knew I'd want a larger size for work and longer wandering trips (I wander a lot). So, I caved and got the Classic Kanken. It truly rules. I'm small, so the size is a little on the large size for me, but it's so structurally sturdy and amazingly crafted that I don't even care. It just FEELS like it will last FOREVER, which makes me feel pretty good about it's price tag. I use mine everyday for your usual everyday stuff. Sometimes it has very little in it (like a purse), and sometimes it has a lot. I'm a chef, so it hauls knives, notebooks, planners, 40oz water bottle, different clothing layers (I'm a bit climate sensitive. Must have a sweater), and my usual 'lady business' (wallet, random stuff pouch, phone, charger, keys, snacks, sunglasses, etc.) 5 days a week.
      It's also my surf pack, so the water resistant factor is a major plus. I travel from Oregon to California pretty darn often, and it's come in SO handy when I've forgotten to bring a shopping bag! (since you have to buy them in Ca). It frequents farmers markets, dog parks (holds ALL of my dog children's stuff plus my own), creeks, rivers, and my glorious ocean.
      I'm not really much of a camper or a hiker...more of a legitimate wanderer, but I really do feel like this pack would hold up well in a more 'extreme' environment.
      The colors are also a major plus. I went with the Sand color because my wardrobe is pretty all over the damn place, and I wanted a really basic, neutral color, but it's STILL a beautiful shade and I'm glad I finally decided on it (took me awhile!).
      Overall I'm super stoked on it, and I'm looking forward to not having to buy a bag for a good long while.
      It's cute, it's comfy, it's sturdy.
      Just do it.

      Can't go wrong with a Kanken

      • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

      Bought this for one of my sisters and the other one loved it so I had to get her one as well. This is not a big bag. It's really pretty small. But, as mentioned before, holds a surprising amount of stuff.
      Very well built, with a stiff face fabric that gets better with time. Just a great all around bag at a reasonable price.

      This bag is 100% authentic, isn't it?
