The Reykjavik model is a really pretty bag, with a nice shape and look.
I use it as a school and travel bag, it has a lot of room in it and can fit even more when you don't lock the 2 straps. I can fit my 15.6" computer in the dedicated pocket. I like the zipped pocket in the back and the huge front pocket, they are really useful. I'm very satisfied whith my purchase !

Big and strong backpack perfect for adventures (I've brought it to the mountains) but also for school or university. Pc fits in. A reusable water bottle and a small umbrella fit on the sides. Pockets are comfortable too. Highly recommended!

This Reykjavik bag is very stylish and useful. We took two Reykjaviks on a trip to Asia and we were really happy with our bags. The bags were practical and firm. I love all the pockets and the beautiful design.
It would definitely order again!

FAQs

Cotton canvas is an extremely strong, durable and breathable natural material.

It is used in many designs in different industries. Waxed, it was used by ship owners to create the sails of sailing ships, demonstrating its optimal resistance to time but also to the tensions that could be applied to the sail.

Such a backpack therefore offers optimal resistance to time, use and wear, making it a reliable companion in everyday life.

We offer two kind of canvas fabric, classic coton canvas and waxed coton canvas.

The only difference between the two is that one has been waxed, giving it water repellent properties.

As a result, an unwaxed backpack cannot be considered completely water-resistant even though the fine mesh and a polyester lining protect its contents.

In contrast, a waxed backpack is water resistant and can be worn in the rain.

Beware, however, that they are not completely waterproof in the original sense of the word, so don't throw yourself into the water or the sea with your bag.

Our versatile backpacks offer an average volume of 18-25L and weigh between 1kg to 1.5kg, providing the comfort and space needed to carry your daily essentials with ease

Waxing a bag is very simple. All you need is a block of wax (if possible beeswax - or paraffin) a hair dryer, and your backpack of course.

If the wax is in the form of a block, you can use a hair dryer to heat the end of the block to melt the wax and then rub the block gently on the canvas to impregnate it with wax.

If the wax is in pellet form, melt it in a bowl and apply it to the canvas with a fine brush.

Once the entire canvas is waxed, let the wax air dry overnight.

We recommend re-waxing a bag every 4-6 months for optimum protection.

You can wash a it, but if it is also made of leather, you must be very careful not to put it in the washing machine or soak it in water, as this could seriously damage the leather.

You can simply use clear water with a mild soap and apply it to the fabric with a cloth, taking care not to touch the leather parts. You can repeat this several times before rinsing with clean water and another cloth. Then let the fabric dry in the fresh air.

As our fabrics are dyed, we do not recommend the use of chemicals that could discolour the fabric.

Almost all our backpacks feature a dedicated compartment for your laptop. It is secured with an elastic band and fixed with a velcro. You can easily carry 13" to 15.6" computers.

If you have a larger laptop, it can also be stored in the main compartment.
