I've been searching for the perfect purse for the last ten years. I've had expensive leather bags, nylon bags, unisex utilitarian type bags, nothing seemed just right. My shoulders, neck and back were bothering me more than ever. Then I saw this mini backpack. I never thought I'd like a backpack. I've always associated backpacks with big bulky school type bags. This mini kanken didn't seem bulky. It seemed like a very streamlined, simple, classically designed small backpack. I decided to try it and I'm so glad that I did! I love the sturdy lightweight fabric, the thin unobtrusive straps, the fact that it zips completely open, and the top carry handles are my favorite for grab and go! It's very comfortable on my back or even if I just sling one strap over my shoulder, the bag still rests against my back. It's large enough for the essentials and then some! I chose the graphite color. Love the variety of colors, but thought it was best to go with a darker, neutral color. I've seen other reviewers state that the lighter colors can become dirty quickly. I read on the Fjallraven website to clean your mini kanken by hand washing with a mild soap and a soft brush, then air dry. No waxing necessary for the vinylon F fabric. I was searching for something that didn't exist. It turns out that I really don't like purses- I needed a backpack! I'll never go back to purses. This little backpack will last me for years to come! Highly recommended!!!

A great little bag! I use it to carry my dog's paraphernalia when go for walks. It easily holds 3 tennis balls, a toy tug rope, a Nalgene bottle, and then some. The iPhone 6 slips nicely into to the external side pockets. Plus, it's super cute.

These are great little bags. Just the right size for my 2 and 3 year olds. The way that these are constructed is just perfect, the straps are set closer together (in a good way) so that the backpack stays on their back. They are the perfect size, for anyone who wants an idea of just what would fit in one. Here's what we have in it on a daily basis with some room to spare. 1 water bottle, 1 bottle of sunscreen, 1 change of clothes, a small toy of some kind, school papers...so, basically perfect for camp/preschool, etc.

I love the overall size of this backpack, but there could definitely be some improvements. The pockets are really small. The front pocket can't fit my phone and the side pockets most definitely can't fit a water bottle. The backpack also arrives really crunched up and wrinkly, but they flatten out through use.

I love the color, the size, the design. It is super cute. The straps (being for kids) were initially really small, but were easily expanded to fit me. The zippers are not the easiest in the world, but I am not real hurt about it. The only real complaint I have is that it arrived sort of dirty? It is covered in a dusty dirt brown substance in some areas, which was odd since it was in a sealed bag. it is not everywhere and it is not really noticeable right away, but it is significant enough that I imagine some people might be pretty upset. There are also a few white smudges here and there. I have brushed off a tiny bit of the looser parts of brown, but it has not really done much to clean it. I have yet to try with any sort of moisture, hopefully that will help. Regardless, it is cute and does what I want it to do so I am still pretty pleased. I figure at best it will come clean, at worst it will have a rugged, well-used look right off the bat.

As the description says, this is a mini backpack. The video does a great job of showing off the size of the bag, and it would make a great backpack for a child or a nice day bag for an adult. I bought it because I wanted a tiny but sturdy backpack to carry around my daily essentials, and I find most purses to be clunky and uncomfortable. This bag works great for that and after a little work, the straps can adjust to accommodate any size. A few things I want to point out: 1) The side pockets are very nice, though not quite large enough to hold a regular-sized water bottle 2) The straps are not padded, though pads are available for separate purchase. It is a great little bag, though, and I'm super pleased with the purchase!

Cheerful color and trendy design, but impractical shoulder straps-- they have ZERO padding. Straps are just 1-inch wide and concentrate the weight on a narrow area of your body for maximum discomfort.

We bought this for our preschool son. Super Fashionable but can't figure out straps and how to expand. This needs to be explained in a video for people and I think you would get more sales. Heck I would buy another in a different color but I feel it only for a one time use. ;(

TINY! I know it says mini, but this is really a lunch bag. It was even too small for my 7 year old daughter.
