I just got the autumn leaf color in the 17in laptop size & it looks authentic! I compared it with my blue 15 in kanken from the actual website and it is identical. (Pics shown) this bag is so much more spacious and I can fit so much more in the front compartment. Only downside is that there is only 1 side pocket! Other than that the bag feels exactly like my other one when I got it 2 yrs ago brand new so I believe this is an authentic kanken bag. Will update if it does not live up to standard with my other kanken.
