After got my hands on the famous and popular Kanken backpack, i’m now addicted to backpacks and bought more! I was torn between two brands, Hershel Supply Co. from Canada and Carrot Company’s anello EST. 2005 from Japan. But after I saw my friend using an anello backpack on our 4-days trip to Taipei, i decided to get one. I couldn’t find the right colour from any shop in Thailand, so i ordered it directly from Japan. It’s a bit more expensive, plus shipping and custom, but i’m super happy with the one i got! 😀
I bought the regular size one, Light Grey x Black colours. It looks small but comes with high capacity! The bag is very light and waterproof. There are 2 compartment, a main large one and a small one on the front where i put my small items like train cards, office access card and etc. There is also a zipper at the back so that i can access my stuff without having to open from the top. Very convenience, indeed! 😉
There is a mini size as well but it’s too small for me (and my stuff). LOL Btw, if you are interested in one, i recommended “Onimaru Shop”, “Choose ME” or “Nukoy Shop” , as there are so many fake ones in the market right now. Please, beware!
Anyway, check out my 1st City Backpack, Fjallraven Kanken No.2 (Deep Red) here:
It’s been a while since i last bought a backpack. It was in 2010 (5 years ago). I got a DaKnie laptop backpack when i was studying in Germany. I used it for trips and day out with my old 15″ laptop. The backpack comes with least 5 compartments for laptop, sunglasses and all. It also has hidden compartment on the back where i can put my important stuff like passport and wallet. I love how big but not too bulky it is! Although i switched to a desktop computer, i’m still using it for a trip that longer than 3 days or abroad.
However, this guy is no longer suitable for everyday use (without a laptop). So, it’s time to buy a smaller and lighter backpack and i decided to get a new one from Fjallraven Kanken. After took it on a short trip, this Kanken No.2 (Deep Red) backpack is great and durable. I like the colour and the waterproof fabric but the only disadvantage is it comes with only 2 compartments which is too few for me. I also got the Kanken Pocket (Black) which is a great compliment to the backpack. It’s perfect for mobile phone, wallet and some small things. Anyway, i love them and plan to get more Kanken products like the mini backpack or wallet in the near future. 🙂
