Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bag, but somewhat small. This is the exact back pack my daughter wanted. Loves the mustard yellow color and the ruggedness of the material. But it is better used as a large purse or carry on. Using for a school bag is not ideal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So cool!! Daughter loves this bag!!!! She's been wanting one for the longest time and Moosejaw gave me the best deal I've ever seen!! Looks so cute on her.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday bag Great little backpack! I use it everyday for carrying my belongings to and from work as well as a carry on pack for traveling. I like that it is a little smaller than a traditional backpack and has a sleeker look. Material is sturdy and seems to repel water nicely. I wouldn't recommend it for carrying heavy textbooks as the straps aren't very thick. However I do also have the Fjallraven fold sack and used it all through college as a nursing major and it worked great! Overall an awesome brand with high quality products. Would recommend!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Sturdy & Good lookin! I love the look of this bag, and was really pleased when it arrived. It's exact to color and a very reasonable size. The only downside is it can be a bit uncomfortable to wear if it's full because the straps are thin. Overall, 8/10!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from First Purchase - Great Purchase! I needed something larger than a purse with lots of room for stuff but not a carry on suitcase size and hands-free. This pack is all that and looks great, too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It was better than I expected. I bought this about a month ago and I got it cheaper than the actual website for this bag and I love it. Delivery was like three days quicker than Moosejaw anticipated which shows great customer service. The product was in awesome shape and good quality. Overall 10 out of 10 try it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cutest backpack ever! I LOVE this backback. I bought it to replace my purse for every day use and so far it's been wonderful. The colors are great (I got the frost green/peach pink) and I get compliments on it everywhere I go. My only complaint is that the side pockets are way too small to fit any normal water bottle, which I had read about in other reviews, so I just use them for work supplies and my sunglasses. I was surprised at how comfortable the straps were, too. All in all, I'm very pleased.

Can anyone tell me if this bag is real or not? Because ive ordered a bag from here before, and it didnt have the original swedish flag that is supposed to come in every authentic bag. I wondered if there was a reason some do have it and some dont.

Asked by: celetubbies
Hiya celetubbies, thanks for your question! Hmmm... We are an official retailer of Fjallraven products. I wasn't aware that every bag included a flag. My bag didn't include one (I ordered it directly from Fjallraven) and I did a poll around the office... we're Kanken groupies around here... and they didn't receive one either. Some received Swedish Fish with their pack, but no flag. :( I will look into this and see if and when Fjallraven discontinued the flag freebie. If you have any further concerns about the authenticity of your pack, I would contact Fjallraven directly at (855) 996-3746. I'm sorry I don't have more information for you!

can this backpack carry a tennis racket when I am riding a bicycle

Asked by: luci
Thanks for the question! The head of the tennis racket will fit inside, however the handle will stick out the top. If you want a little more height in the pack, then I would check out the Kanken 17 instead. It has dimensions of 16.54 x 11.81 x 7.09 inches, where the Classic Kanken has dimensions of 15 x 10.6 x 5.1 inches. Hope this helps!
