Re-Kanken 16L Backpack

With the Fjallraven Re-Kanken Backpack, there's no real need for introductions or ice-breaker games—this pack stands out on its own thanks to its iconic silhouette and Fjallraven name. Much like its eldest sibling, the Re-Kanken features the classic and dependable design that you've all come to know and love, except it boasts a slightly more sustainable construction. More specifically, the Re-Kanken is fashioned with a fabric that's made entirely out of recycled water bottles, and is dyed utilizing a process called Spin Dye, which not only reduces water consumption, but minimizes impacts caused by toxic dyes.

My favourite Backpack for life

I’ve had a Rekanken for 6 years now. It looks brand new , I usually throw it in my laundry. Holds up very well. It has aged beatifully. I adore this backpack. Huge fan of the brand now because of this backpack. Never had a backpack that lasted so long it such great condition. Because it lasted so long , I bought the rekanken mini, for smaller version, the kanken No 2 for my laptop, the weekender qhich is awesome as a carry on even at airports, the sling which I use as a purse and the tote for groceries and stuff. I only use fjallraven now , cause you can never go wrong. It is made to last !! Also I feel like is very stylish , I only wear black and only hace the boack ones , the color hasn’t faded. Make sure to wash it every now and then in delicate warm cycle or by hand.  I love that it doesn’t take any space, and is super light.  I am surprised that for such small and simple handles they haven’t torn. I gave away any other backpack or bags that are not this brand , this is by far the comfiest, classiest and best. If I end up buying a new backpack ever again , it would be this same exact one just to renew, althought I have a feeling it can literally last a decade more , impressive Fjallraven.

I’ve had a laptop Kanken for a while which I love, but it’s bright orange. I brought a grey re-kanken as a toned down version for work. This is no where near as good as the original. The material is stiff and quite noisy when walking around with pack on. It just feels low quality too compared with my other one. It also has less features than my other pack. My first one has useful pockets inside and is nicely lined. The re-kanken doesn’t have any of this. If the sustainability credentials are important to you then re-kanken is an acceptable back pack. If you’re not too bothered about green credentials the original is much better!!

LOVE the deep purple

I love this bag. I've used it as my daily work bag to carry my laptop, overnight bag for short trips, and adventure bag (for hikes with my shiba). It does seem to attract my dog's fur, but it's not super noticeable. The side pockets aren't really big enough to hold most water bottles because they're flat pockets, but they work well for quick access items like sunglasses and snacks. I've been using it consistently for 6 months now and the color hasn't faded at all. I only wish they made other items with the same deep purple color.

Favorite Bag

I've had this bag for over a year now and it has aged perfectly. I love everything from the design to the size. It's the perfect bag for everyday use, hiking, etc. The only thing to be weary of is that the recycled polyester material can sometimes get linty if that bothers you, but when it does I just use a lint roller. Highly recommend.

Cómoda sin mucha carga, el logo bordado es un puntazo. Ideal para verano

Una ayuda al medioambiente

El material es ligero y tiene buena capacidad para uso diario, además es un producto respetuoso con el planeta. Ganaría mucho si las correas estuviesen acolchadas.

Wanted one for a long time.

Had my eye on this backpack for years. Unfortunately i find it a little stiff and not as user friendly as I assumed. Overall ok, but had I been able to use before purchasing I think I would have passed.

So far so good.

I got the recycled one. I take it many places. Durable. I like how it came with swedish fish.

One little thing

I think the bag is awesome, it fits a lot of my thighs, is good looking and comfortable to wear. The o my thing I’d add is that I really need a bigger side pocket for my water bottle. I carry it everywhere and I need easy access to it.
