    Fired Up...

    • Height: 6'0"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    My step daughters home burned down July 2nd, and she lost most of her gear and clothing. I purchased this for her (along with much more) to help her get geared back up for a month long trip to Europe. She loves it as much as this time around!

    Perfect work tote

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 170lbs

    I bought the Fjallraven Kanken for my wife to use to tote all her essentials to work in and she loves it. She works as an ICU nurse and is paranoid of bringing home all the germs that flood a hospital. This bag is small enough that its easy for her to keep hung out of the way, and the material is that where it's easy to wipe down when in doubt. She's able to pack her note books, lunch, makeup needs, etc without constraints. My daughter has one too, they both love em.

    Awesome

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

    I've picked up 6 of these recently for gifts. After the first one got noticed everyone has been wanting one...

    As far as I can see there are much more functional / comfortable backpacks out there, but for some reason everyone is in love with these.

    Great if you care about that, so for the wife and some family members, these have been awesome! For myself, I would look at something else :)

    Great and Simple

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 140lbs

    I love this pack!



    It is very simple without a ton of pockets. It is great for everyday use, hikes and markets. Fits all of my basic items.



    The only thing I would change is making the side pocket big enough to fit a water bottle. The pocket on the side is so small I can barely fit my hand in it.

    Great and Simple

    Makes a great diaper bag!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 175lbs

    Love this lil' bag! Everything you need and nothing you don't. I wanted a diaper bag that was minimalistic, durable, functional, yet still stylish. The Kanken ticked all these boxes with a happy face! The pockets on the sides are the perfect size & shape for a 8-10oz bottle, the back panel comes with a removable foad pad, that works as a changing mat in a pinch, but I have since removed it and replaced with a proper folding changing mat, there is also ample room in this back pocket for a travel packet of wipes and about 4 diapers. The main compartment is all the room you will need for a day out with the lil' one, plenty of space for extra clothes, blanket, food, and toys. The loops at the top of the pack also have an awesome snap closure that is perfect for hanging this bag from the stroller handle. Lastly, there is a great small pocket in front for quick grab n go snacks or to keep for your own creature comforts.

    We love this bag so much that my wife had to have another to use as her travel bag for makeup & toiletries. We have also since added a mini re- klanken in the mix to use as a travel & daycare bag for our son.

    Tried & true bag with classic styling, highly recommend!

    Kanken Pack

      I bought one as a gift for my best friend to use on her family trip to New York and i knew i had to get one for myself. The hardest part was trying to choose a color because of all the awesome options! i use this pack specifically for gym outings and so far its been great. plenty of room for extra clothes, accessories and water bottle.
      I love the different strap options as well. Great fit and great look.

      Love this backpack

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 5'7"
      • Weight: 135lbs

      I love the zippers on this. They open fully so you don't have to stick your entire arm inside to find your chapstick. You can see EVERYTHING in there! Also, highly durable and water resistant. The colors do seem a little different from what they are on the website... The forest green that I bought is a little darker than the picture, but I am still in love with this backpack!

      color not at all like pictured

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
      • Fit: True to size
      • Height: 3'7"
      • Weight: 40lbs

      I love the Fjallraven Kanken backpacks. My son had the mini one for preschool, so we just got a bigger one for Kindergarten...I bought the deep red which looks like a bright, beautiful red in the picture. In real life it's burgundy and nothing like the picture.

      Very cool and perfect sized backpack

        I ordered this unsure of how big it'd be or the quality that it was, and I have to say I was very satisfied when I received it in the mail. I am gonna use it to go to the beach, camping, and when school starts again I'm gonna use it as my school bookbag. 5/5

        Cute, basic pack

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

        I use this for toting the kids stuff around town (no serious weight or rugged use) and while I love the look it hasn't held up like I thought it would. I've had it about a year and a half and the stitching is coming undone in a few places, even though I haven't washed it yet. The inside seams also fray and get caught in the zippers, which is annoying.



        Overall, not bad but I wouldn't recommend for anything but light use.

        Cute, basic pack

        Stylish, Durable, Uncomfortable.

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        This pack has been a pretty decent adventure companion but I would not buy it again.

        The pros:
        -Cute AF
        -Zips that go all the way down
        -Very durable material

        The Cons:
        -The shoulder pads are sold separately(seriously Fjallraven?)
        -The "removable seat pad" is a thin sheet of foam packaging, so essentially garbage.
        -If you take this "removable seat pad" out everything in your pack will start stabbing you in the back, which makes for a very uncomfortable bike ride.

        Stylish, Durable, Uncomfortable.

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