I got this one because it was more water proof friendly than the original version. I've been carrying it for a couple of weeks now and although others have stated it's very comfortable I would say yes if not for extended periods of time, depending on what you're carrying, and how cool it is outside. Plus of the bag: It opens mostly all the way, which is great when you need find items in your bag quickly without fishing around in your bag. It's roomy inside but if you're a pack rat, you'll have to modify what you can pack The No. 2 - is even more sturdy and durable than the original version It sits upright, no flopping over Pretty rooomy laptop compartment - I can carry my MacBook Pro 13" and iPad in the same compartment The cons: You'll be sweaty mess in the heat since there's no venting in the back panel area Although the straps have some padding, they could use more in my opinion. The one pocket in the front is too small, considering it's the only one, it should be bigger
Super cute and roomy. I thought it would be too small but since I usually put my notebooks, laptop and iPad in the back padded laptop zipper sleeve place that leaves the whole main compartment for my giant pencil case, snacks, and sometimes gym clothes. The padded sleeves make it super comfortable to carry around all day. I would recommend getting a light color if you have a cat or dog because I got the dark blue color and I have to lint roll it a lot. Also if you're scared of not being able to fit a water bottle in the side pockets, I use a thermos 20oz water bottle and it fits well. Smart water and core water bottles also fit in the pockets.
I LOVE this backpack. It is very well constructed. It is water resistant. The computer pocket fits my computer with or without a case. The interior fits a lot of things. The zipper opening allows access to the entire compartment so I don’t lose things at the bottom of my bag.
After contemplating for a couple of days to pick which color would best suit my girlfriend (Dark Olive vs Deep Red), I decided to go for the Dark Olive color. As soon as I was about to place my order, I realized the seller bumped up the price by $20 only for the Dark Olive bag... At first, I was quite upset, but I saw that as a sign for me to go for the other color, so I ended up getting the Deep Red for the girlfriend. Thankfully, she approves of this red because it's not a typical deep or bright red.
Even though the name of the color was "Deep" Red, I was a bit skeptical because the product photo actually depicted the red having a slightly brighter shade of red. Fortunately, it does have a deep/dull tone of red -- which was what I really wanted -- and I'd say it's closer to Indian Red than Chili Red (I used Wikipedia's description of red colors as a comparison).
Loved the bag but the strap was falling off after 3 months of use. I contacted Fjallraven and sent pictures with proof of purchase. I sent it back for repair. They said it could take 3 to 6 weeks but it was returned in 1 week. Great bag even better service !!!!
Love this backpack. It’s beautiful and fits everything I need it to. I use it everyday, and it’s held up just fine. I can fit my laptop in the back compartment; a large binder inside along with a large pencil case and another large case that I use to organize small things. Would definitely buy again.
My son loves his new Fjallraven! He had a smaller one in pink (he believes is a high vibration color) but it got dirty (which of course being a guy he didn’t care too much about) and I thought could be replaced with a larger bag that he could actually fit his laptop in. The bag is very high quality and am thinking about one for myself! Thanks for creating a great quality product.
Fantastic bag. Wish I’d known about them years ago. It’s debut for me was a day pack on a two week trip and I couldn’t be happier. Not huge but carries a lot. Bag itself is very lightweight. I’ll be a repeat customer for sure.
