    They’re a alright brand that you see everywhere, but you get what you pay for. If you want durability, look somewhere else. If you want something cheap for the semester, it’s fine. If you like the Scandi style, go with Sandqvist, I’ve had this Stig for 10+ years and it’s holding up perfectly, but they’ve unfortunately discontinued it or I would buy a second one.

    the rband is overpriced and overrated, they were good 20 years ago. and that one in particular is meant for women or gays, you do you

    They should just remove that stupid circle and letters and leave the fox. It could be a good looking, simple logo like apple.

      You are in fact a literal moron who knows zero about actual good design cues. Zero is about the number of sacks they would sell if they were to follow your pathetic advice b-t-w. Utterly plebeian take. Not only should they leave the lettering, but they should also screenprint the care instructions, materials labels etc in extra large typeface in whatever Scandinavian language that is on the outside of the bag.

        I’m not your billboard, stupid. I’ll only wear pretty things, not your gay-ass name.

        >simple logo like apple.
        that apple pseudo minimalism is design cancer

        No. It’s least logo-like logo. No logo is best, but a simple logo is 2nd best.

    I have the mini and I think it is only acceptable with the shoulder padding (cost extra), without them the straps dig in too much

      are kanken bags a regional thing?
      i’ve never seen one of these things a single time in the wild my entire life, on the west coast usa. the jackets? everywhere. but i’ve never seen a kanken. not even one at college.

      I had a superbreak while in High school.

      They’re well made and the base fabric is very strong and long lasting but the design is intended for swedish school kids from the 70’s and hasn’t been updated since then.

      You’ll find a lot of shortcomings using this as an adult, like the side pockets being too narrow to take a thermos, there’s no shoulder or back padding and the straps are stitched directly to the back so heavy loads will be uncomfortable, you can do better for the money.

      I found one at Value Village for $3. Pretty sure it’s a fake, but it reminds me of the Jansport Superbreak I used to have in high school.

    i still use my Eastpak i got 15 years ago, why aren’t these popular anymore? i think they look fine and the quality is great

    I bought one 4 years ago, still looks great.
    The catch? it was second hand, the original owners landline and name is written on the tag inside
    they’re robust as hell

      I used to think the same thing about Jansport Superbreak, until I bought one. I just so happened to find one at a value village for $3
