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 !!!!
I use this backpack for school and while it's expensive, I still really like it. It holds up to dust and dirt better than my old gray kanken but even still during my first day of using it, there was a mark from something right on the front of it which is a little annoying. It's just wide enough to hold a binder so you can't use the water bottle holders on the sides with a binder in the bag cause the actual fabric of the holders isn't elastic. The bottle will press into the bag and take up room on the inside. I still really like the bag though and it holds everything I need for school. I just carry my water bottle now or shove it in my bag if I have the space. Definitely holds up better than the other style of backpack I got the year before
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.
