To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyzes reviews to verify trustworthiness.
My daughter bought this backpack. I was scared that it wasn't original, but it was worth it, because it's original. The material is an incredible quality and fits well for a high school student, and is waterproof. Excellent to travel. The color is fine, it looked darker but she liked it. Definitely, a great purchase.
1.0 out of 5 starsCounterfeit Fjallraven from third party

Update: I have purchased two more of these backpacks (1 in store and 1 from Fjallraven online). Both are substantially higher quality than the one I got here. I’m sure the third party I bought it from here is COUNTERFEIT. Make sure you’re getting it from Fjallraven on Amazon.
👉 Seams are fraying after light use over 2 months 👉 NOT waterproof or water resistant (no wax) 👉 It doesn’t appear to be fake, just outlet quality
I would send it back but have missed the returns window 😭
My daughter had one of these and highly recommended it. It is so lightweight, and very comfortable to wear despite its narrow straps. The distribution of weight in it is just right, making it easier to carry for extended periods of time. We recently wore our Kankens to Italy for a week-long trip, and they made perfect travel bags. The wide selection of colors is a plus as well. One downside is the tiny water bottle pocket, I bought a 9 ounce narrow water bottle that fits but it is a very small amount of water to carry! It also includes a thin foam seat cushion which acts as padding on your back but can also be used in a pinch when you find yourself sitting on a hard surface. I was at a swim meet recently with metal bleachers, and sat on it for hours comfortably despite its thinness. Highly recommend this backpack!
