Straight backs more than happy backs. Kanken was released in 1978 to spare the backs of school children. Back problems had begun to appear in increasingly more youthful age groups and shoulder bags were popular. Kanken has many simple, clear functions. The backpack quickly ended up being a typical sight at pre-schools and nature schools around the country. The idea of utilizing a backpack rapidly spread, as did Kanken. It is simply as popular today, and an exceptional choice for school, getaways or cycling to work. Kanken is constructed out of long lasting, light-weight Vinylon F. The large main compartment with a big opening makes it easy to put in/take out items. Two side pockets and a zippered pocket in the front. Manage at the top, narrow, supple shoulder straps, sitting pad in the pocket in the back and logo design that doubles as a reflector.

Real Kanken, and very happy!

I’ve heard a lot of things about these bags being fake, however, I ordered the warm yellow one and I checked all the signs for it to be real and they were all good. This specific one is from outland usa, and while I can’t say that anything else is real and not fake, the bag that I got from them is the real one. Some people have pointed out signs that makes it real, so I’ll write them here too:

Ox Red

I attached pictures to show what all I put in my bag. It’s not heavy at all with the things I put it in. As for the side pockets I don’t believe any bottles larger than the one I have shown will fit in it. This is ox red and it looks as pictured to me. I do believe this is a real Kanken just based off of “verification sites” I viewed online. Amazon sold and shipped this to me so if you’re using any other seller buyer beware …you may get a fake ..if you don’t really care about that then go for it. I really love this bag and I may get the mini next!

Authentic Kanken!

I never write reviews, but I received my first Kanken today and I’m in love! The material is amazing and the color is absolutely gorgeous. I was very hesitant buying authentically through Amazon, but I am very certain my backpack is the real deal and I’ll give some tips that are helpful when buying. I chose to buy through Amazon and fulfilled by Amazon as I believe this would be the safest option, and I don’t regret a thing. It looks perfect, and it got here in only two days! One of the first things I checked was the reflective patch, as this would be difficult to replicate and my patch is indeed reflective. The straps are a material with a detailed sort of “H” pattern, and the fox on the buttons is detailed and reads “WASA 6” on the other side. All zippers read “YKK” on the side, the crest on the tag is detailed, and he brochure looks legit. No complaints here! The material is firm but sturdy and I’m sure it’ll break in with use. I was able to fit much more than expected inside and it doesn’t feel heavy at all, which is great for all-day use, especially if you have back issues like me. Remember to buy from Amazon and by Amazon even if it’s a few more dollars, mine was still cheaper than it would be on the Kanken site. Happy shopping!

authentic and quality backpack

I tend to over pack my backpack, but this pack is big enough to hold the essentials and small enough to prevent me from filling it with unnecessary items. it is also very good with my back, I’ve noticed a big difference. the material is water resistant and high quality. I know amazon has a lot of fakes but 4 simple ways to authenticate the bag is by checking if the crown on the price tag is gold, blue and red, checking the pattern stitching of the straps, checking the inside label of the bag, and taking a picture of the fox logo on the back, if the bag is legit the material will reflect in the photo, thats the most easy sign.

Kanken is still my favorite backpack after one year. I must note that the color does fade away a little ,but I don’t think that’s too big of a problem. It is super comfortable on the shoulders and relieves the back from pain despite its thin straps. If you are carrying textbooks, for many students, we can hold it with the straps and it’s still super sturdy. There are two main pockets, one small one in the front and the big zipper which goes all the way down and can open like a luggage. Even when I’m carrying heavy things, I don’t feel much of the weight on my shoulders. It is definitely spacious and can hold numerous things; nice and rectangular shape which makes organizing easy. There is also a laptop compartment, however it is not cushioned, so you’d have to be careful nonetheless. Overall, its stylish, spacious, and easy on the back. i highly recommend this backpack!

style above all else

Full disclosure here, I wanted one of these backpacks after seeing them all over Pinterest and Instagram and liking the Scandinavian style. Although I do a lot of hiking, I don’t even plan to use this for hiking necessarily, and I am not a student. It will be used more frequently to carry my journal and books back and forth between home, work, and the library. I absolutely love the quality of the materials and was pleasantly surprised by the excellent design. My least favorite thing is the way the straps, once adjusted, don’t snap back onto anything. Hard to explain but if you own a Kanken you likely know just what I mean. Fortunately they seem secure enough that it is not an issue. I can’t find fault with this backpack otherwise as it’s very nice and the seller I ordered from is definitely legit, everything was just as it should be and clearly authentic. I ordered a less desired color due to price as this was my first Kanken pack, but I have a feeling it will not be my last. I’m kind of loving the Orchid color. Graphite is great though, goes with absolutely everything.
