My soon to be sister-in-law got me this fjallraven kanken backpack for Christmas and so far it has been perfect for the West Coast. Not only has it been my stylish companion in the city but it was especially great for this hike in the rainforest as it is lightweight, waterproof, and versatile!! I am sure that I am going to love my kanken for years to come!! So thanks again Lacy - I love it!!
