    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.

      The new cool thing in elementary

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

      Got these for my kids since they are the new "it" bag at their school and they love them. The colors are great and the bags are very well made. They work well for their elementary school load and haven't been too small for them.

      awesome!

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

      Bought this for my sister in law as a gift and this is what she said: Excellent backpack for everyday use. They are stylish in a simple way, not flashy. I use it as to carry all the essentials for my kids while we are out and about. It is the perfect size - just big enough to fit everything we need. And my son also loves carrying this around. We may need to purchase another one as his book bag for school!

      Perfect.

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      I ordered the yellow/colorblock straps. It is so cute in person. The yellow is brighter than expected, but I love it. It is the perfect sized bag to fit a day trip worth of goodies in. I use it as a small diaper bag for my toddlers. Diapers, snacks, change of clothes, a couple toys, my wallet, sunglasses, and phone.

      Perfect everyday pack!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I cannot praise this bag enough to everyone I meet! It truly holds up and lasts so long(this is the second color I've purchased) ! I bought the wax bar to be able to re water proof it but I haven't needed to. The bag is stylish, yet holds a lot of stuff contrary to what you may think when seeing the picture. I would highly recommend this backpack to everyone!

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