Exactly the backpack I've been looking for
on 5 March 2018
I've been looking for a backpack which can be used for commuting, travel carry-on, and as an everyday hiking/walking pack - This is definitely it for me. I already have a lot of Fjallraven gear and am always impressed with the durability and craftsmanship. I especially like the top easy-access compartment, which is soft-lined for scratchable items such as sunglasses or a phone. Each of the side pockets can easily accommodate a standard 500ml water bottle or larger even when fully packed (see photo). There are three main pockets and an additional zip pocket to the front for easy-access. The front-most pocket includes two mesh pockets and some slide pockets for smaller accessory items. The large main middle pocket has another zip pocket on the top-front, and the rear compartment has a padded pocket for a laptop and a slide pocket for documents. The meadow green is a lot closer to this listing on Amazon than what's on the Fjallraven official site - It's a very attractive mossy green colour. This is a good sized pack for a male or female. I can easily fit my 13" work laptop, a couple of changes of clothes, some toiletries, and other small essentials.
I do find the laptop compartment zip a bit sticky, due to the fact that it needs to be fed around the padding, but it's not enough to warrant a complaint. The bottom of the pack is sloped down toward the wearer, so it probably won't stand on its own unless it's loaded very bottom-heavy. Overall I am very pleased and if it's anything like my other gear, it will last a long time.
Shipping from this seller was very quick.
