💬 Reviewers Have Said

  • "I have had it for over a week now. I'm using it as my day pack and camera bag (bought the small camera case). Plenty of room for my Laptop, camera, sunglasses, phone, wallet, makeup, and other bits. I love that it does not look like a camera bag and I feel safer traveling with it. I used a few small pouches to hold small items from falling around the interior. Color is beautiful, Dahlia. Not just your average school backpack!"
  • "Simple, rugged backpack. Sits high on my back, which is a plus (I am 6'2"). This 17" version is a good size and looks appropriate. Comfortable with a moderate load (i.e., laptop, textbook, and water bottle). Understand its limitations; I would recommend this backpack for casual use."
  • "I ordered the Dalila color and I'm in love. Very bright color the bag is huge and I love that. Holds a lot of things I have 3 notebooks, my laptop fits inside and not in the laptop sleeve, and I have 2 textbooks. Holds a lot if you're a full-time college student I would recommend it to a friend. The bag is pricy but it is worth it, it is durable and will last you multiple semesters. I do wear darker color jeans and it stains the backpack but you can just wash it off. In the end, this backpack is 10/10 worth the money!!!"

The Best Thing I Bought This Decade Is Fjällräven’s Kanken Laptop Backpack

"Whether I’m heading to the office or to the airport, the Kanken fits exactly what I need — and helps me carry it comfortably. And with all of those separate compartments (it also has two external side pockets), it has another surprising function, too: a diaper bag that looks much cooler than a real diaper bag. "

Kanken Laptop Backpack: The Best Laptop Bag Reviewed

"All-in-all, the Kanken Laptop Backpack is, in our opinion, the absolute best laptop backpack out on the market. It’s stylish, comfortable, and has plenty of space to carry almost anything you need to be bringing with you. Great for students, professionals, commuters, and parents, the uses for the Fjallraven computer bag are nearly endless. If you’re looking for a quality backpack that can hold your computer and everything else, you don’t need to search any further."

Fjallraven Kanken (17″)

"Ahhh, the classics. Like a VW Beetle, Ferris Bueller, or those white IKEA high chairs you see in every cafe around the world, the Kånken has grown up with more people than Elmo. It’s blocky, it has lots of handles, and the straps are pretty basic. But there’s something so primal about the Kånken that you fall in love. "
