Fjallraven is one of the best names in quality backpacks. They have proven that over decades of producing some of the most durable backpacks and duffel bags. That’s why we were excited to see Fjallraven add a very good quality everyday commuter / school bag to their offerings. The Fjallraven Raven 28 Daypack is perfect for anyone that wants a roomy, well-laid-out backpack that is unassuming and can blend into a work or school environment. The Raven 28 Daypack is made of G-1000 heavy duty polyester. Some of the most durable materials on earth. It has a comfortable back panel and well-padded straps that separate this bag from some of Fjallraven’s more fashion oriented bags that just have thin fabric straps. It can accommodate up to a 15 inch laptop in its zippered laptop compartment and features a really handy zippered security pocket in the inside for any valuables.
One of our favorite additions to this bag is the fleece-lined pocket that is easily accessible from the outside. This is perfect for a phone or a pair of sunglasses that you don’t want to have damaged. There are also two different side pockets which will easily accommodate most regular sized water bottles. Rounding out the package is nice leather detailing around the carry strap that adds that little flair that Fjallraven is known for.
In all I would say that this is a really great bag for anyone looking for a great school or commuter bag. If you were looking at Herschel I’d say this is in the same category but with better construction. Fjallraven generally uses better zippers and materials on their bags that allow them to last a lot longer under a daily beating. We give this bag our wholehearted “Buy it for life” BIFL rating.
