I've been looking for the perfect canvas backpack for ages is feels like and I think I've finally found it! It's roomy (fits my 15,6 inch laptop along with packing for a weekend away), it's sturdy, it's comfortable to carry and it's absolutely gorgeous and will look great with almost any outfit. All in all I'm super happy with my new bag and judging by the look and feel of its quality it'll go on adventures with me for many years to come!

review of the Malmö brown canvas leather backpack

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 !

customer review of the Reykjavik brown retro canvas rucksack

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!

customer review of the Göteborg dark grey vintage laptop rucksack

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.
