Special order items take longer to ship

We want to make extra-sure you realize that you've added a special order item to your cart. These items take a little longer to get to you because we have to order from the manufacturer first. The "Est. Ship Date" is the date we expect items to leave our warehouse... so add your chosen shipping speed to see when it will show up at your door.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great everyday backpack I’ve tried many backpacks and this is the one that fits all the roles: hiking backpack, everyday backpack, diaper bag (i use jujube pouches to organize), camera bag (with peak design camera Cube). I love it! I did get strap pads to make sure straps are comfortable to wear.

Hi there! I'm really hoping to get an authentic Kanken backpack. Before I purchase, can you confirm that Moosejaw is an authorized dealer for Fjallraven?

Asked by: Anonymous
Thanks for the question! YES, Moosejaw is totally an authorized retailer of Fjallraven products. All of our gear is authentic and in new condition. You can confirm this via their store locator. I included a link below. I hope this info helps and you enjoy the best backpack in the world! https://bit.ly/2XU7xXk

Hey, I want to use this bag for school, but I'm not sure if it would be able to fit all the books and things I would need. I oredered this bag somewhere else and it was so small. Is this backpack about the same size as a normal school bag would be?

Asked by: SamFecher
Thanks for the question! I have the Classic Kanken and use it as more of a work bag/ purse. I would not use it for school because it is a tad short and items such as notebooks will hit right at the top. I would go with the Kanken 15 Inch Laptop Bag - even if you aren't planning on carrying a laptop, because it will give you more internal space. The dimensions are 15.7 x 11 x 6.3 inches and I included a link below. I hope this gives you a better idea! https://bit.ly/2OHxK3X

I'm replacing my Fjallraven 15" laptop bag (purchased a couple of years back from Moosejaw), and was wondering whether or not this bag would fit a 13" laptop comfortably?

Asked by: BrittW
Hey BrittW, good question! The original Kanken bag is 15" x 10.6" x 5.1"; so knowing that, you should have just enough room in there somewhere for a 13" laptop. Hope this helps!

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!

Is the material the same for all colors? Because it seems like the acorn color and the sand color have a different shape/fabric

Asked by: jcho
Hey, thanks for the question! As someone who has multiple Kanken's in several colors, I can confidently say that every color option is made of the same fabric. Some of the images are photographed differently and also the zipper placement while closed will affect the bag shape. There is no material difference :)

is the color on the picture the color it looks like it in person

Asked by: jake123
Hi jake123, thanks for the question! The color may look a little different based on the type of screen you are looking at these on, but we try to do our best to provide the most accurate color representation we can. I hope this helps!

Will the original 16L Kanken fit a 40oz. Hydro flask water bottle in the side pocket? Thank you! 

Asked by: Dreilly
Hey there Dreilly, great question! Unfortunately; no Hydroflask bottles will fit in these super skinny side sleeves. I do know that these S'well bottles fit, I'll attach a link so you can check them out for yourself.

Will you get in any purple bags any time soon?

Asked by: Angelica
Hey Angelica, thanks for the question! We should be getting more purple options of this specific Kanken in the future, I cannot say for sure when that will be at this time though. We do currently have a Deep Violet option available in the Fjallraven Re-Kanken Backpack, I'll leave a link for you to check it out below. I hope this helps!
