Perfect for long trips!

I love this backpack sooooo much! I have only used this backpack once so far for a 3 week trip but it was exactly what I needed. As a plus size woman, I was worried that it would sit well on my body for long amounts of time. Well, it does! And the waist belt fits great!

RAJA 46 BACKPACK

I returned the product simply because it did not fit my large frame (112kgs; 184 cms; 7% body fat). The product was excellent - I was disappointed that I had to return the bag. It was good quality, looked really cool and was Artisan produced. Have purchased other products from them and am very happy with them

Ethnotek-technically!!

I’ve happily travelled for years with a Raja 46, then my bag was stolen, and I was MOST devastated about the bag itself!! Replaced it and got a new lease on all the other threads I already had!! Always happy knowing that the bag is more than just great looking!

Best Backpack EVER

I love my new backpack. I'm a yoga teacher and travel between multiple studios. This bag is big enough for everything I need to take with me. Binders, props, laptop, water, food, clothes, personal items, everything! Plus it's crazy comfortable, even when completely full. So many hidden convenience compartments. I've had tons of compliments on this bag, and I like the idea that I can change the outside panel if I want to change the look. Bonus, Ethnotek customer service is great. I originally bought a smaller bag, and when I realized the size wouldn't work, they allowed me to switch it out for a larger one and pay the difference. Super easy to work with and very quick response. So happy with this investment!

Can’t wait to only take this pack with me everywhere every time

Excellent. Durable, high quality materials you can feel at first touch. Essentially a 50L pack (46 of course) that has the style of something you’d take to class. Will update after a month trip to Central America carrying a full camping setup, clothes, pro audio tech, etc. Many thanks Ethnotek

Beautiful Artistry

I bought this as a larger companion to the 30 liter and am most pleased. I love that the bag is the product of a sustainable and ethical commitment to utilize the beautiful artistry of folks with an everyday useful item. I use this for getting to and from work and it holds all that I need. As the colder weather sets up a need for warmth and comfort, this bag allows me to get to where I need to be with the right items. I am often asked about the bag for its beauty and uniqueness. This allows for a real cool conversation about who Ethnotek is and what they are about. I feel grateful to wear on my back a handmade and beautiful pack that represents the hard work of folks who are paid an ethical wage, as well as the beauty of a people that is shared worldwide. Always grateful to walk with Ethnotek on my back. Namaste.

A New Universe

When I opened my bag for the first time I fell into a winter wonderland where I befriended a satyr. Also, it's very comfortable on my back.

The Perfect Pack

I was pleasantly surprised with this bag. I replaced my old pack (Ethnotek Premji 20) with this one and at first I was worried it would be too big for me (5'4" Female) but it's actually the perfect size. All of my stuff and laptop fits inside without stuffing the bag full so it's not uncomfortable to carry, but I could easily fit so much more inside without running out of room. The secret zipper compartment on the side that opens to the main part inside is genius, since that allows you to access your contents without having to unroll the top. Also, the double-zippered laptop compartment is well thought out. I had none of the zipper issues with this bag that I had with the Premji 20 (zipper would open while walking because the zipper closed at the bottom of the bag, not the top). Great design and well proportioned. A home run for me and worth every penny.

Love the Raja 46!!

I took a 2.5 week trip to Europe and loaded my Raja 46 to the hilt! I stood in lines hours long, walked very long distances with the bag loaded and worked terrific. It was comfortable and received a few compliments! I opted to purchase the waist strap and rain guard after my trip as a nice addition. I thought this would give the added support needed for my shoulders and back while carrying a heavy load. Also opted for the rain cover for unexpected weather. Overall great bag!!

Amazing quality!

I am a student and have a case logic bag that I love, but I also carry a lot of books and ride my bike so I needed something more comfortable with space for me to bring lunches to school. This bag is so spacious. I mainly got it so I could use it for school and for trips. It has so much space, so many pockets and even with my laptop and books in there it still has more space and is more comfortable to wear. I live in Oregon so there’s enough pockets to carry an umbrella and hats and gloves and my hydro flask. And the bag is water proof. I highly recommend this bag. It’s worth the investment.

Best Backpack I've Ever Owned

This bag has lasted me 9 years, with 2 separate 'threads'. It's been to over 15 countries, all over the US, and has been my daily commuter for years. It's waterproof, bombpoof, and has held up astonishingly well to my abuses. I used to be a Chrome guy and owned several of their bags, but this one beat all of them out in terms of reliability and ease of use. Happy to spend the money on another one knowing I'll get almost another decade of use out of it.

Favorite Backpack I've Ever Owned

I've had a lot of backpacks over the years and done my fair share of traveling. I finally got this bag as a gift from my partner(I gave many hints) about a year ago. I have both of the Vietnam threads, and they are beautiful. I live in Seattle, and I've never seen anyone else with this bag, but people ask me about it all the time. I take it to work every day, and keep all my essentials in it. I pretty much take it with me wherever I go. Bus, light-rail, scooter, bike, walking(I don't have a car) etc. I am actually glad it doesn't have a hip belt, as I use it so often that those get annoying when you're frequently putting a bag down/putting it on. All the straps/buckles are very well made, and the organization of the bag is top notch. I can tell I will have this bag for many years to come.

Love

I have had this bag since 2011-12 and still love it as much as I did when I first stumbled upon it! It's gone through a lot of changes with me (7 threads!) And been on countless trips and still looks great. This would have been my last backpack, but I know I will eventually cave and get the updated version that works with the hip belt! My only regret is that I was too slow to score that beautiful Ghana 5 thread back in the day. Please bring it back so I can finally have some peace!
