The bag is a looker, that’s for sure.
However, the materials aren’t great. The leather straps for fastening it shut get wrinkles in a matter of days, and I expect they’ll soon be cracked in places. I’ve used the bag two days so far, and the bottom leather is already greying and scratched. These are marks of low quality "genuine leather" (the worst kind), which does not age well at all. There are also weird spots on the side bottom leather bits, which were already there when I first opened the bag. Most likely from pent-up moisture during delivery.
As for the craftsmanship, I’m not sure how long it will hold up. So far, so good, but it looks like it's single stitching and at the first sign of stress it'll come off.
All in all, I’m not sure I would recommend this product, which is a shame. If the same design had been done with quality materials and proper craftsmanship, it’d last a lifetime!
It is exactly like the photos on the webpage, color especially. Very well organized inside. I’ve been wearing it dayly since I got mine, trips and at work. I strongly recommend it.
Awesome bag. Will last years. Great quality and service. I'll be Back for sure. I e straps actually use it as a Camera bag now and works perfect. The straps are also magnetic for quick access if you need in quick. Thanks again from Ottawa Canada!!!
I’m British and hate Brexit - I buy Zara clothes - drive a Skoda - and wear ECCO shoes - I love European design and outlook - my fantastic Latvia rucksack is a joy to wear and meets all my requirements of style and practically
The backpack looks exactly like on the photos. The delivery was very quick and uncomplicated although Deutsche Post tried it’s best to make it difficult :)
The bag shows it’s quality in it’s fabrik and takes lots of stuff when used unfolded also for long trips.
I strongly recommend 👍
Great leather backpack! I was a bit worried of the quality for the price but I'm delighted! Thank you !
I received my order a few days ago and already got so many compliments for my new bag pack. There is enough space for all my stuff and my 13”laptop. I’m very happy about my purchase. I love the Helsinkibagpack!
For a long time i wanted a real leather backpack. It is exactly what i wanted. I came across this model, the parameters was top. Delivery to Denmark took eight days by postal service. Packed well, in two packages, plus in factory package. Real thick skin, but at the same time it is soft. Weight around 1855 gr. All seams are perfect. Inside the backpack is a lining, there is a compartment for the laptop (13' inches will fit exactly), a compartment with a zipper, two simple pockets for small things. Outside is a valve pocket in front, on magnets, on the sides are two large pockets with a zipper and a hidden pocket on the back with a zipper. The backpack closes on top with a zipper and is covered with a valve on magnets. On the straps is a fabric insert from the inside, for comfortable socks. I do not lie if i say that this is one of my coolest acquisitions :)
I really like crazy horse leather bags, like the traces above, like his leather, this is the best bag I have ever bought, the skin is thick, the real natural skin, very happy.
Very cool backpack! The parcel went exactly a week to moscow! The skin is oiled and wax-covered. it is stitched qualitatively, the threads do not stick out. The lining resembles jeans. There is a pocket for a small laptop. It worths the money!
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!
Already loving the pack. It matches my outfits a lot better than all the other packs I used to wear. Fits tight and snug, just how I like it. I highly recommend this pack, especially for campus use, city strolls, and nature walks.
Excellent product!!! I couldn't recommend more. 4 stars because it was delayed by a post strike but it's not the shop fault :)
Much better than expected, thick cow leather but very soft, seams very well finished, The bag is very wide, nice smell, good quality interior fabric, good bearing metal buckles, reinforcements, communication with Eiken team. I recommend also the backpack without any doubt.
I decided to buy a backpack from Eiken since my old Bluboon backpack fell aparat during years of rain, snow, college and highschool using. I picked the green one that I found attractive, not thinking much about it. When it arrived to my address I was just delighted how lovely it looked and how much space it contained. This backpack could take all my favorite books from Dostoyevski, Larsson and all other literar theory books that I oftenly use for my studies. Honestly, this backpack was worth the price, and actually It was way cheaper than other backpacks offered by other firms and sellers. I highly recommend it. Best regards from Adriatic :)
I saw the introducing video of this bag on the website and the guy in the video had exactly the same items as I wanted to put in it, sooooo I had to choose this one :) Couldn't be more happy with the purchase: good design, firm quality. Travelled through different weather conditions and still looks brand new. Like the vintage nostalgic edge. Thumbs up for this one!
Super backpack! Exceeded my expectations. The skin is thick, the line is even. Lots of pockets. And most importantly it fits my game 17 inch laptop, travel set, linen, charging, power supplies, all fit without problems. Eiken rocks, i recommend.
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!
This backpack is true to the pictures and we can see that's a high quality product. The only minor problem would be that it's quite large for a 5'2" girl like me because of the rectangular shape but I think that's okay ; it wouldn't make me regret my order at all. It has large capacity, you can fit many things in it, a specific padded area for your laptop and many zipped pocket in the inside. This backpack is just awersome and the support service is so well informed and reassuring. I recommend with eyes closed !
