Fjallraven Splitpack Review | 35L Travel Backpack & Duffel

We’ve been impressed with the durability and craftsmanship of the Fjallraven Splitpack, but it lacks in some key areas. There’s no laptop compartment, water bottle pocket, and most importantly, it’s not comfortable to carry. View Details & Buy:

In this review, we are taking a look at the Fjallraven Splitpack—a 35L bag that’s split between being a duffel and a backpack. (See what they did there?)

Having reviewed the Fjallraven Travel Pack and Kanken Mini, we’re low-key digging this brand. We’ve mainly been impressed with their minimalist aesthetic, quality materials, and durability—and we hope the Splitpack can continue to deliver on all of these fronts.

With its minimal aesthetic and interesting design concept, we had high hopes for the Fjallraven Splitpack. Unfortunately, it fell short in both practicality and comfort. If you’re looking for a gym or weekend bag, this pack may work for you. But we think it’s missing too many key features—like a laptop compartment and comfortable harness system—to be considered for serious travelers and digital nomads.

Aly Visram says:

great review – and thanks – i was thinking about purchasing this and was skeptical on how the left/right loading and straps worked in practice. So thanks for saving me the hassle! Cheers, A

Paul Ho says:

I’ve been waiting specifically for this review. I bought the small in red, and it’s a great weekend throw around bag. I did have to pack a separate bag for my laptop, but I’ve been hacking the bag with a shoulder strap from another bag and attaching it onto the grab handles on the top and bottom handles. It’s great luggage for soft items that you don’t immediately need access to, and works well as a minimal carry if you want to designate clean clothes on one side and dirty on the other, but you will need an auxiliary carry for your other items, like the Totepack that I also purchased.

I don’t like how Fjallraven packs look like… But I love the inside though!

Benfica é o Melhor says:

Actually you can buy a chest strap from fjallraven, and it will make this backpack much much more comfortable.. Still not at hiking pack comfortable but, still comfortable for city travel
