Great little bag for the beach/hiking/trips. Instead of my normal beach tote bag I thought I'd invest in a backpack so that I could take it hiking as well. This bag is a good size it fits multiple sunscreens, a light jacket, sunglasses, my phone in the side pocket, my wallet, water bottle, snacks, and has room for more. I'm a petite 5'3 and the size works great for me! It seems well made and sturdy, not to mention uniquely styled, worth the extra money!

This bag is small and perfect for an outing! The reviewer below probably failed to detach the straps to make it long enough for an adult. I love it and can see it perfect for a concert or anything. My only wish is that it had a removable cross body strap. I want every color!

This is a cute backpack with somewhat a functional design. I use it mainly for my short 1-2 hour outings to walk/hike/visit playground with my 2 toddlers. I just pack hand wipes (inside backpack), 2 small kids water bottles (packed inside backpack), sunscreen tubes and hand sanitizer spray (packed on outside side pockets), my wallet (inside backpack), set of keys (inside), portable kleenexes (small zipped pocket of backpack), toilet seat covers for my toddler girl (inside backpack), and 2 juiceboxes (packed inside of backpack). It fits everything i need for the 1-2 hour outings... where i dont want to carry my big diaper bag bc i dont need diapers for those short outings nor a change of toddler clothes... and where i dont want to bring my regular size backpack (northface one) coz its just too big for what i need. This mini version is just right... I gave it a 4 star rating instead of a 5 bc the side pockets are really slim - no water bottle that i can find anywhere will fit those slots. Some websites state its for water bottle but its really for like a rolled up magazine or newspaper or a small umbrella. This brand if backpack also comes with a foam padding inside that you can take out and use as a seat cover if u find urself outdoors and dont want to sit on a soiled area (at least thats what some outdoor stores that sell these bags claim they are for)... :) Overall, i would recommend this bag for short outings esp with lil ones where u dont need to pack diapers anymore! (Also great to hand it down to your toddler for when they are older and can wear a backpack by themselves)

Absolutely LOVE my Mini. The color is a dark teal blueish green. It is so cute and I get compliments on it all the time. It has a water-repellent type material covering it, so it's perfect in bad weather. This size is in lieu of a purse when I don't want to carry one. I love the handles on top if you don't want to put it on. They are really well made and super durable. I would love to get more in different colors!

Perfect size for a minimalist diaper bag. Hopefully will last as long as people say and baby can use it when they get to kindergarten. The only thing I wish is that the side pocket was large enough to be useful for something.

Between the mini and the full sized kanken, I decided to purpose the mini because I felt like it was a better everyday bag than the full size. Inside, it can fit a medium sized planner, camera case, a water bottle, phone, phone charger, small things like tissues, hand sanitizer, small wallet. It is bigger inside than it appears outside. I got this to wear for a day in the city or on a short hike. I got the burnt orange color because it is a great color against neutrals and it is also a great color to compliment autumn colors.

This is an adorably cute backpack! I got it in the color Ochre which is a fun colored backpack that will work for all seasons! I really like the simplicity of the bag, which makes it so simple to find things. This back is perfect for your day to day basics or for a festival. I unfortunately had to return it because I wasn't a fan of its initial 'crispiness' and didn't want to have to wear it in. Regardless, would recommend!

Bought as a backpack for my 3 year old to use at preschool. Perfect size for a kids back. Fits everything he would need. Also, we use when we're out and about instead of me carrying a purse. If you are an adult looking for a full size backpack, however, this is not for you.

I got the bag in Orchid and the color is so beautiful in person. The straps are a bit hard to figure out when you first get it but after I figured it out, this bag was cute and functional!

This is a very cute backpack. I bought this for my 8 years old daughter for our upcoming vacation. It can fit most the stuff that she needs for walking in the city, such as a compact camera Fujifilm X10, raincoat, her beanie boos. It is small, but it can fit quite a lot of stuff. Again, it is so cute that I might steal it from her. :D

I bought one to replace my toddlers diaper bag and she loves wearing hers. I loved it so much I bought myself one to replace my giant tote. They're great little backpacks and we use ours everyday. The mini can comfortably fit a 17oz swell bottle, small wallet, makeup bag, wipes, diapers, and a few snacks. I just haven't figured out how to properly adjust the straps aside from the shortest and longest options.

This backpack is amazing! It's great for travel and takes the place of a purse and beach bag. It can fit my iPad, wallet, 2 books, water bottle, and cosmetic bag. Definitely worth every penny!

Adorable little pack. We saw these all over Norway when we visited this summer. Very high quality. It's pretty small but perfect for a child or toting a few things.

Very cute backpack. I ordered it in fog to use as a diaper bag for my 13 month old. It's just the right size. I can fit 3-4 diapers, wipes, a change of clothes, and a couple snack pouches. Very happy with this bag. It beats carrying around a big diaper bag.

I plan to use this bag for my diaper bag so far it fits everything I need for my newborn. I love all the pockets and durability of the bag. The option to hold either like a lunch pail with the handles on top or like a back pack is perfect since i am always on the go with my little ones! I also like that the bag could later be a backpack for my youngest when she is in school.

I purchased the Kanken mini (in "air blue") for my 5 yo daughter for school. I wanted an ergonomic, proportionate backpack for her frame, and this one is PERFECT. It's just the right capacity for a kindergartener as well- just enough room for what she needs (lunch, a little water bottle, and the random packet of homework), which is just enough weight for her little, growing body to support. The only "downside" to this backpack alone is that you really need to purchase the shoulder pads with it- not terribly expensive, but Zappos doesn't stock them (I ended up purchasing mine from Fjallraven's online store). Additionally, shoulder pads only come in a very limited range of colors. Not a problem for us (we chose pink. Daughter loves them), but potentially an issue for a person who wants things to match.

I love my Kanken Mini! I recently bought this to use to bring my things with me to sleepovers, parties, on the go, etc. Although it was smaller than expected, it still fits everything I need to bring with me. I have received many compliments on it and many people have asked me where I bought it! I would recommend it to anyone. I can fit a light jacket, big wallet, sunglasses case, my iPhone 6, a water bottle, and some other random things in it when I take it with me on the go.

I'm absolutely obsessed with my Fajallraven Kanken Mini!!! I have been looking for a backpack that is small, sleek, and can still fit a good amount of items. Well, this is it! I can comfortably but my full sized iPad, a spiral notebook, a big wallet, keys, makeup bag, a 20oz Hydroflask water bottle, and more. Personally, I went on You Tube to find reviews, and seeing the size helped me settle on the Mini. The outside is sleek and simple. I have the Black and Ox Red bag, and it's just perfection! Neutral with a pop of color, so I feel good having it in any situation. The material is a bit thin and to start it's definitely a bit stiff, but that goes away over time. The handles are not the most comfortable, but for all the benefits the Mini brings I can totally roll with that. I love that there are two "slit" pockets on the sides of the bag, that i usually put my iPhone 6 in, and an umbrella on the other side when it's needed. I actually walked through a massive thunderstorm the other day, and although I had an umbrella, it was definitely a relief that this was water resistant. It was soaked, and yet nothing inside was even remotely wet! I was blown away!! Overall, this bag is everything I could have hoped for. Now I'm a Fajallraven fan, and will only speak praise for the Kanken Mini! Do some research, and if you decide to go with the Mini, you won't be disappointed!!

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!!!

Brands I'd also recommend: Chaco, Keen, Vans, & Kipling
