Ehh..

Fit:
Runs small

Although this backpack looks cool, it is super small for a 6' tall Male. maybe it is my fault for not checking the dimensions, but I ended up giving this backpack to my 6 year old nephew since it looks better on him.

Cute with no frills

Super cute little pack that fits a surprising amount of things! I love to take this in place of a purse when I'm travelling. The material is nice and can handle a lot of abuse throwing this under airplane seats, overheads and dragging it around all of the word.

when you got your backpack, was it 16L?

It's all about the aesthetics

Familiarity:
I've used it several times

This backpack is so cute, but also functional. I bring it to work every day and it carries everything I need with room to spare. The fabric is a tad stiff at first but it's already softened up. I get lots of compliments on it. My new go-to bag!

Bought it for my daughter, she takes it with her when she travels instead of lugging around a purse that isn’t as durable.

Stylish Diaper Bag

I've used it several times

Got one of these for my girlfriend so that she could use this instead of a purse. She did use it like that some what, but recently she has started working as a nanny and from what she has told me... These are the ultimate diaper bags!

A Great Christmas Gift!

I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

Purchased this as a gift for my Sister this past Christmas and she's stoked! The backpack seems like it can hold a decent amount and is very stylish which is great for when you're using it for school or just a day bag for running errands. I got her the black one and it mentions that you should wash the bag if you want to avoid any color bleeding just as an fyi.

Gift for a teen girl

I asked my 13 year old niece what she wanted for Christmas and she asked for this bag. I thought it looks like a pretty bland choice but it was a huge hit. Its a quality product and apparently super popular with the kids. As a result, I am a great uncle!

Cool Cousin

I am not very cool or stylish. Every year for the family gift exchange I have to buy presents for my awesome female cousins and they are with the times. I never what to buy them. I end asking around the office and this year I was a hit! Well actually the backpack was. My college age cousins will be roaming campus in style. Apparently, they told me I picked out a great gift. Go me!

Perfect Gift

I gave this to my sister as a gift and she literally gasped when she opened it. She's been using it for school and says there's enough room for notebooks and her laptop without looking overstuffed.

Cute Little Backpack

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

Bought this as a gift for my aunt! It's super cute and seems like a great size to use as an everyday pack. The handles make for a functional bag. I ordered it in the peachy pink and my computer showed a more muted pink/rose but it definitely came more on the peach side. Not a problem though since pink is pink to my aunt!

good backpack

Familiarity:
I've put it through the wringer

the kanken is a very nice bag. if you're looking to buy one do it here as you get free shipping. i've been using my sky blue bag for over a year and it's very sturdy. i don't see myself buying a new backpack anytime soon. as for this seller, it's very reliable, good customer service, and quick shipping. love the bag, would reccomend. perfect for school use and i carry my macbook in it even though the fjallraven website says you're not really supposed to. the main issue is the 2 pockets so there's the main pocket for binders etc. and there's the mini pocket for chapstick and pencils. the water bottle pockets (on either side) are very small and, when used, prevent notebooks from fitting inside the main bag so i just keep my charger and snacks in them because there's not much room for anything else.

Up to what size laptop can fit in it? Thanks!

what is its capacity?

Hey Anne, This pack is 16 L.

>Rating:

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

If by that you mean that it's actually made by Fjallraven and actually made of the fabric it claims to be made of, then yes. But I'm not entirely sure what you're asking.

Hi WARANOON, We purchase all of our items directly from the vendors themselves. So... yes, this is "100% authentic"

Why is this in the women's section? Pretty sure they're unisex.

Doc, The Fjallraven Kanken pack is definitely unisex. Thanks for the question.

hi, I want to know the size of the backpack...

hi, I want to know the size of the backpack is classic?

Zheng, We have the dimensions for the Fjallraven Kanken Backpack listed in the tech specs, but it also has a volume of 16L.

16L is the size of the classic kanken. I had the same question so I looked at the kanken website
