    Details

    Made from durable waxed canvas, this traditional backpack has a laptop sleeve and seat pad to protect your tech and your tush.

    When you've had enough of over-hyped accessories and space-aged fabrics, reach for the Fjallraven No, 21 Medium Rucksack. The simple, square design of this durable backpack will appeal to your sense of minimalism. This pack isn't for the anti-internet, as the laptop sleeve has a padded bottom to protect your tech. If you're heading off for an alpine picnic, the specific pocket holds upright your thermos of scotch-laced chamomile tea so you can have a warm, chill-fighting drink when you reach your destination. Don't worry about bringing a camp chair, as this pack has a removable seat pad to cushion your tush when you're sitting on uneven ground. Side pockets will hold your water bottles when you're hiking or your umbrella when your adventures take on an urban flavor.

    Looks Good, But Not Quite There

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Height: 5'11"
    • Weight: 150lbs

    The backpack looks really good aesthetically, but not that great for functionality. It works alright for casual/commuting purposes, but wouldn't be great for hiking. The interior is pretty small and narrow, making it hard to get things in and out like others have said. The water bottle pockets on the side will only fit tall narrow bottles in my experience, and will take up a lot of room from the interior of the pack.

    Cute and Casual

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I really like this pack for a casual around town bag and using for work. It fits my laptop perfectly and has enough organization to keep a couple of odds and ends without carrying too much. The thermos holder is unique and was a fun surprise for me! The water bottle pockets on the sides are hardly noticeable, but large enough to expand and hold a hydro flask. It can be a bit of a pain to get into, but it's cool that it has that retro feel - it has real claps with metal and leather - no velco or magnets. My only real complaint about this bag is that it can get really warm on my back if I'm carrying it for a long time.

    Work Bag

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    For me, this pack will only function as something I can use to and from work here at good ol' Backcountry.com. Quality materials and very clean aesthetics made it an attractive buy for me. I can't see it being functional out hiking/trekking, but as a work/casual bag it is awesome. It fits my 15" laptop just about perfectly. I am 6'1" and do not like how short the shoulder straps actually are. I almost have the leather part of the straps hitting my shoulders which is kinda weird.

    Work Bag

    Needs pockets

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    I was hoping to take this on an international trip, but found it won't fit my needs for travel. There is only one access point to the bag at the top, which means if you need anything, you have to take the bag off, undo everything and dig around in the interior. There are no side pockets or top pockets for easy access. The inside also lacks pockets for organization and storage. The fabric on the bag is fantastic, and I really wish it would work for my needs. If you need a bag that's pretty basic and looks nice, with some added durability, this would be a great choice. If you need pockets and organization, I would look elsewhere.

    Not what I expected

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: True to size

    The pack is well made and looks really good but isn't as functional as I thought it would be. I was expecting a small pack but its really hard to use the main compartment. It is really narrow and hard to put things in it and get them out. Also, the plum is a lot more red than I was expecting. The next size bigger would probably be a much for functional back.

    well crafted

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I'm a sucker for mid-century and Scandinavian design, and Fjallraven's Medium Rucksack speaks straight to that sensibility. The design is simple, well crafted, and infuses a sense of authenticity and history by maintaining elements from the first Fjallraven packs that were stitched-up over 50 years ago. The classic G-1000 waxed canvas feels exactly the way good outdoor fabric should feel. It's durable, water resistant, and my favorite part is that it breaks-in and takes on more character with age.

    well crafted
    Unanswered Question

    Is there any leather on the pack? Can't tell of the straps and label are. Need to know if its vegan friendly. Thanks!
