I am a *very* skeptical and cynical person. I am even more so with items like bags that will receive heavy use. I've got a few rucksacks, one that has been with me since about 2006, one that is all leather (and good - but just very heavy) and now this one. And - I love it - apart from one small minor thing, I've noticed (and had to repair to the best of my ability) some nylon thread came loose on the front pocket leather - I just slipped right out. I carefully tied the loose ends together and then carefully used a lighter to tidy the frayed thread.
I've been using it non-stop for EVERYTHING. I use it as my commute bag on my Vespa every day - rain or shine. I use it for shopping, I use it for going to the coffee shop. It's perfect. If you're looking for a water resistant, roomy, and practical bag (yet incredibly *dare I say it*, trendy!), go for it. It's got thick leather, the magnets are strong, the zip is strong, the canvas fabric is thick and durable - it is truly a bag for adventurers!
I just used it for a weekend walk to Cancale and Mont Saint-Michel. I was able to store everything I needed (small hot jackets in case of draft, headphones, camera). It turned out to be very practical, it is a robust, aesthetic product with a very original vintage style. I recommend it with no hesitation.
It's big enough for a weekend trip and even if it's fully packed it is very comfortable to wear! I always have problems with my back, carrying a backpack for too long but this one does not make me uncomfortable at all. Also the material seems high quality and it's just very beautiful to look at, my everyday companion since i got it, thank you eiken :)
The Helsinki backpack came right in time! The tracking option that EIKEN offers for your order was a nice add on (you receive an email after your order that enables you to see the different steps of shipping) and the backpack is really nice quality. I'm very pleased by its overall look and the fabric plays well together with the leather. There's nothing more to say :)
Well, well, well. It's very realistic photo and it's very large Backpack Rucksacks for my 15'' Laptop and this item have large capacity. Nice looking and I am very satisfied because its for a Christmas surprise. Normal shipping and delivery. Thanks for seller (very, very good). Many thanks for good job. I recommend this Helsinki.
Very good Quality!! Very big Bag. Suuuuuuuuuper!!! Perfect
a really beautiful, very solid bag you can feel that the oilcloth and leather are of good quality. I like it very much, thank you for letting me discover it, I advised you to all my friends.
Superb bag, the leather is very beautiful, some traces on it but which give a very beautiful vintage side. The fasteners are strong and the interior is practical and allows me to have a nice tool for the work
Best backpack I've ever had!! Everything is just perfect, very well made. I'm really happy.. Thank you.
Good quality! Great bag, I really like the vintage side! I recommend.
Very satisfied with my purchase, I looked forward to my gift and I am not disappointed at all with the result. Ultra resistant and well styled
A little darker than in the picture but I like it just as much. I like the retro/vintage vibe of the bag, I recommend 100%.
Quality range, really great! Very beautiful, very thick fabric color. The description matches completely. Suitable for laptops
