“Overall Customer Feedback”

Written on: 28/01/2012

Even though the Kanken Classic looked compact and small, it is able to contain alot of stuff in it without looking bulky. With my previous bag, I used to have trouble squeezing into the subway because it will slouch out. Now, with Kanken, the shape of the bag still remains slim-fit even though i carried quite a number of things in it. I like the wax on the bag. Because my country rains frequently, the wax is able to protect the water from soaking into the bag. Also, raindrops are easily sweep… Read Full Review

“My to-go-to bag!”

Written on: 28/01/2012 by Twixie (1 review written)

It's either raining or sunny at the place I live at so it's a plus for carrying a kanken around since it becomes waterproof when in contact with water. I've been carrying it around since I received it and it's great! Never once do I worry about getting caught in the rain and causing my stuffs being drenched while in the bag. What's more is that it is very versatile, be it a tote or backpack. It just goes with nearly everything I'm dressed in! Isn't it just great? It is also able to carry loads… Read Full Review

“Amazing Backpacks”

Written on: 27/01/2012 by germs (1 review written)

When I ordered my backpack, I knew I was getting something good. When I did receive it, I was surprised to see more features than was advertised, and even a full leather bottom! The worldwide shipping was free too! The only thing I didn't enjoy was the customs fees, but that isn't their fault. Would buy again… Read Full Review

“Stylish, Functional, Durable - From a new customer”

Written on: 26/01/2012 by knucklecracker (1 review written)

I fell in love with one Kånken bag after a friend of mine bought one for him. Since them, I was obsessively chasing one for me. Unfortunately, we don't have Kånken bags in Brazil, so I bought a Peach version for me. I found it a bit too feminine so I decided to give to my sister, who loved it as well... Finally I bought my first classic bag, in Teal. Since then, I haven't changed the way I carry my stuff, and I really like to collect ecobags and backpacks - for real. They fit well, it's… Read Full Review

Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted you are happy with the Kanken and hope you like the colour teal green!
I am afraid the customs in Brazil are very strict and it does take longer than most countries. I hope you think it was worth waiting for! x

“Best backpacks ever”

Written on: 01/12/2011 by ally__oop (1 review written)

I received my Kanken Classic super fast! The colour was a little lighter than what I had been expecting, but it was actually much better that way! I've been using mine for a few months now and it is wearing really well. I love how the bags get better with time and use. The website is also really quick to email you when new colours come in which is much appreciated… Read Full Review

“Kanken Conversion”

Written on: 30/11/2011 by Flinaa (1 review written)

I received my Kanken today and it was delivered to work - needless to say my excitement has inspired many more in the office to get on the Kanken train! I am in Australia and it arrived less than a week after I ordered. This bag is the coolest purchase I have made online in months and I can't wait to get more! The happiest Kanken customer you could possibly have! Thank you!!… Read Full Review

“Best online purchase I've ever made”

Written on: 30/11/2011

I can't believe how quickly my order from ILMK arrived! Even with being half-way round the world, in Oregon, I had my package in less than a week and a half. My obsession with these bags continues, and not being in Sweden anymore means I can get them with affordable shipping, in all colors. They were friendly and responsive, and I will most certainly be buying more bags in the future… Read Full Review

“Mini in name, but not in reality!”

Written on: 28/11/2011 by daisymerolling (1 review written)

I am a sucker for angles. There I said it. The first thing which attracted me to the Kanken family of bags wasn't their amazing variety of colours. Neither was it the allure of buying a Swedish classic which has been around ever since 1960. No, it was the cute, charming corners of the backpack which pointed (pardon the pun) me towards ilovemykanken.com so that I could order my very own bag as soon as possible. The website deserves an entire soliloquy on its own. The accents in black! The… Read Full Review

“Wonderful bag, fits laptop and pads for studying!”

Written on: 25/11/2011 by jackevans (1 review written)

I needed a new bag a few months ago as my previous bag broke. Finally when it got to payday, I was going to buy one from www.oipolloi.com, but www.ilovemykanken.com were doing a 10% promotional offer, so without hesitating I ordered from their site. Since having the bag I have introduce 3 friends to the brand/bag, and they all now have kankens. Even my friend has bought a kanken for her dad for christmas! Great bag, perfect for carrying around an A4 pad and my 13\" MacBook. Would recommend to… Read Full Review

“It's not just a backpack - it's a Kånken.”

Written on: 16/11/2011

I'm going to be honest and say that it wasn't love at first sight for me and Kånken. When I first saw it a few years back in a photo online, I thought to myself, "What a strange backpack, it's so angular and rigid-looking. Why would anyone buy something like that?" But for all it's angularity and rigid-lookingness, I fell in love with it upon seeing it in real life at a sportswear shop. The material, like canvas but tougher and waterproof to boot; the practicality of its signature… Read Full Review

“DOING REAL STUFF SUCKS”

Written on: 13/11/2011 by areta (1 review written)

Working in the fashion industry, I'm expected to dress up head-to-toe in exklusive ( & expensive ) designer brands. Elegant and classy. Shirts, blazers, pencil skirts and the worst... high heels ( ouch ). So.Not.Me. Submiting myself for scorn and unfriendly peeps from my work mates, every morning I put my fave ragged vans, I-don't-care-what-you-think attitude & The-Best-In-The-World kanken on and comfortably ride my bike to the office. Best stylist-assistant uniform in the world! 3 My… Read Full Review

“Kanken Kool”

Written on: 13/11/2011

I am very pleased with my Kanken Classic and always surprised at how much I can cram in. It's very versatile from a style point of view and highly utilitarian -form and function does exist! Because I purchased it in putty, it has lost some of its gleaming appearance with noticeable scuffs, but that adds character, non? Nevertheless, I'll have to do some research into how to clean it without impacted its weather-resistance properties. Spot cleaning doesn't seem to quite fit the bill… Read Full Review

“I love my Kanken”

Written on: 12/11/2011 by electrictwist (1 review written)

I spotted a Kanken on the web once and instantly grew to love it. It looks quirky and definitely very, very uncommon in Singapore. I googled and found Ilovemykanken and browsed through all the colours, I was spoilt for choice. Conflicted between the Brick, Rust and Ox Red, I eventually chose Brick! I figured it is more uncommon (yes, I like all things uncommon) and there would be a lesser chance of bumping someone on the street carrying the same bag in the same colour. However, the Brick mini… Read Full Review

“Amazing kanken backpack”

Written on: 11/11/2011 by jjjjj (1 review written)

I've never had a kanken before but I've been dying to get my hands on one. Being a student who is constantly on the lookout for awesome backpacks, kanken backpacks caught my eye.  It's a backpack like no other. I love all things classic and kanken is definitely classic. Others may complain that its appearance is too boxy but that's what made me all in love with it. What's even more awesome is the material which is waterproof and extremely light. That would save my laptop and notes from the… Read Full Review
