My daughter loves this backpack. The color is called sky blue, but it's not what I would think sky blue looks like. Her hydroflask doesn't fit in the side pocket though so she has to put it in the main compartment. These backpacks are all the rage with teenage girls, but I wouldn't want one for myself, but I'm 47 ha ha!
I finally gave in and bought a kanken, and I have to say I'm definitely impressed. Great quality backpack, super stylish. I personalized mine with a bulky cute keychain and some pins, which is so easy to do with this backpack as it's not overwhelmingly designed (always a plus). I have received multiple compliments on it. The quality is perfect too, it's very durable and the material is not cheap at all. Personally, for me it is a great day to day backpack, I've used it for about a month now, and it's a great highlight to any outfit. It can very well be used as a school backpack too, which is what I intend to do once school starts. It fits my Mac, and can fit books. Only thing is if you have a lot of school books and binders to carry then this might not be so ideal, but for me it all works out and fits (don't get me wrong, you can pack a lot in here). I used to carry around a purse but with this there's so much you can fit for your entire day (definitely a plus, and beats having to endlessly dig around in a small purse) and it sits comfortably on your back so that you don't even remember you have any weight on your back. The logo is so adorable as well, definitely love my kanken.
I absolutely love my sky blue Kånken! It’s just beautiful!! I ordered through NetRush fulfilled by Amazon and this bag is 100% authentic. Netrush has Fjällräven listed as a partner on their website. This bag features the heavy duty material and stitching, the reflective logo, the foxes all face to the left, zippers show the fox and Fjällräven name, foam pad with the sticker, colored Swedish emblem, Swedish flag tag on the inside, encased seams, etc. I’m in love with this bag! Honestly the most comfortable backpack I’ve ever used in my life and the color is beautiful!
Very satisfied with this product, looks great and holds a lot of belongings. I do wish the straps were adjustable like other backpacks. You can shorten the straps and clip them to the top and then use the handles at the top to carry the bag or you can unclip the straps and pull out the straps to the max length to wear it as a backpack. Trying to adjust it to some length in between causes the extra part of the strap to poke out and it feels like it was not designed to be used that way, it's just really awkward. The other thing is how fast the color fades on light colors. I used mine daily for 2-3 months and the sky blue is now a dull grey even after washing the backpack.
Otherwise, it's very sturdy and has been through a lot the past month as I've been traveling abroad and lugging it everywhere and tossing it around so I'm both impressed and satisfied. The cons to this backpack aren't enough to outweigh the pros and plus, I've been eyeing this bag for a long time before my purchase!
I've wanted one of these for months, and I'm so glad I finally bought one. The bag is very comfortable and a nice size for school or just for using as an every day bag. Love the foam insert in the back, it protects my laptop. The straps were a bit confusing at first. The fabric proves to be waterproof (but I live in California, so the only rain we've had wasn't very heavy.) I really love the reflective logo patch, perfect for walking or biking at night.
The day I received my fjallraven kanken I switched my school binders and laptop from my old tired north face backpack to my new kanken. All of my school items fit perfectly in it. This backpack is the most ideal size for a college student. I can keep my laptop, binders, wallet, chunky graphing calculator, and a beanie or scarf in it. Even after walking all around campus my shoulders never ache or get sore. I would recommend this backpack to anyone interested in a functional and on trend backpack. I also can vouch that this is a 100% authentic fjallraven kanken (so don't worry).
I just love this bag! Love the color and the best thing is that I can for what ever I need inside. It has. Lot of room and it’s comfortable on your back. I wasn’t sure at first but now I’ve been using it every day and absolutely love it! I also put it in the washing machine when I need to clean it.
I purchased the warm yellow kanken in 2015 and just purchased another one (in sky blue), so i figured it was time to give it a review. I don't do reviews often (this is my first one actually...) but this bag has been my prized posession for years so how could I not?! It's been roadtripping across the country with me, travelling to LA, Florida, Georgia, Texas, and back to New York. It goes with me when I hike, explore, and is my school backpack too! (I get soooo many compliments on it.) it fits A LOT too. For class I can fit a couple notebooks, folders, my laptop, a snack, my wallet, pens, my keys, and usually a waterbottle as well. It's durable and will not rip or tear because of the tough fabric. The only downside I can think of is since I had the yellow colored one, the bottom got a little stained over the past couple years, but it's not noticable when I'm wearing it. Honestly just buy it if you're looking for committing to one, beautiful, reliable bag for the next few years. I've never been happier with an amazon purchase. I've never had any experience with buying a fake, so my only advice would be to make sure it says "fulfilled by amazon" when you choose a color.
