Bags can be designed for almost any specific outdoor activity. Hiking, cycling, bushcraft, etc. But this makes it difficult to find a single, practical bag that can serve multiple purposes.
I recently walked a multi-day camping trip across the Lake District using the new Singi 28 litre backpack from Fjällräven’s Fall/Winter collection and, for me, this has been the first bag in a long time (since my old Sleeka Force 35 by Snugpak) that fits the bill.

Coming from a collection containing four other packs in the Singi series, the Singi 28 is an adaptable and customisable bag that, with the help of additional pockets that can be purchased separately, can be adjusted to fit your activities.
If you are familiar with Fjällräven, then you will know what G-1000 is. If not, I will quickly explain. G-1000 is the signature material used for a majority of their clothing and load-carrying products, including this bag. This makes it super durable, and it can be adapted by using Fjällräven’s Greenland Wax to extend the garment’s life and add water-repellency.
What’s The Singi 28 Like To Carry?
With a base weight of 1400g, it’s a relatively lightweight pack. Upon first wearing it I can say it has a surprisingly comfortable fit, considering it doesn’t have an elaborate back support system. The rear of the bag is covered with a soft padding to make it comfortable when pressed against your back, regardless of any hard objects contained within.
