TRAVEL: Millican Fraser Rucksack 32L Review | Heritage Style Backpack For One Bag Travel & EDC 2021


The Millican Fraser Rucksack 32L has impressed us with its durability, versatility, and comfortable carry. We just wish the external straps wouldn’t dangle as much. View Our Full Review:

In this review, we are taking a look at the Fraser Rucksack 32L from British backpack specialists, Millican. Located in the English Lake District, Millican emphasizes durability and sustainability with the aim of creating “lifelong companions for the conscious traveler.” We’re big fans of the brand ethos, and it’s something we can get behind here at Pack Hacker…but none of this matters if the bag fails to deliver!

We’ve been testing this backpack for the last three months and it’s seen use as a one bag travel pack on a trip around the UK, a daypack full of tech gear to work from coffee shops, and a gym bag thrown in the trunk of a car.

The Fraser Rucksack 32L has impressed us with its durability, versatility, and comfortable carry. Not to mention the top-notch Bionic® Canvas fabric exclusive to Millican. While the external straps can dangle a bit much for our liking and the water bladder pass-through hole could be tweaked for better weather resistance, the Fraser Rucksack 32L is a fantastic heritage style backpack with modern features that won’t let you down.

    Want to see more Millican reviews?

  2. I'm a little disappointed with the backpack. The material doesn't feel valuable, the workmanship leaves a lot to be desired (sloping seams, unclean work), it has practically no zips, just everything with ribbon … and it's not particularly comfortable either. It lies relatively low on the back, hangs down a bit … so rather average for the price. Isn't 'Made in Britain' either

    Do you think the 25L version of this bag would work as an EDC/travel bag for a grad student?

  6. Time to break out the silicon glue for that water bladder hole voila job done. Tossing this up with Fjallraven Raven 28L price point this considerably more by as much as 50% – old question is it 50% better have to wonder.

    Nice, I've got one with aluminium buckles

  8. This is the one! Love on first sight, thank you so so much for your great work on youtube and your website – and ofc for introducing me to my future companion!

    Keep it up! 🙂 <3

    Thats a great looking Bag …Not sure if it justifies its £145 price tag thou when there are other bags on the market equally as good for less then half the price .

  10. You seem to have completely forgotten the dedicated laptop compartment accessible only from the side of the backpack.

    Great review guys ! It’s really great to sea packs that are available in europe. Hope one day you’ll make a review of the Mixed Works Falcon M. I’m really curious about it

  12. Omg there are so many gorgeous bags on their website. As an Australian, most carry on luggage limits for Australian airlines, and most near-by Asian airline carry on limits, and most near by New Zealand airline carry on limits is 2 bags at 7kg each plus a personal item, so I would consider this backpack, or the Marsden, with a shoulder bag, possibly the Bowden, Martin or Stuart. I have to say, stylistically I love the Harry if it wasn’t so heavy, with the Dave, as a carry on to hotel room dump.

    Great stuff Nathan. I’ve been waiting for this review. Overall I’d say I really dig this pack and it’ll be going on my list for sure. Curious how big of a water bottle can you fit in the side pockets?

    Awesome pack and the brand looks great as well! Not of fan of this type of bag (top loader) but otherwise it ticks all the boxes.

  15. Global Adventurer 07.01.2021 at 15:00

    Like the look! But in a smaller bag for casual use. Good review thanks👍

    4:10 You've been hanging around too many Americans with that "aluminium" pronunciation 😉

  17. Christopher Rines 07.01.2021 at 15:00

    Great Pack, Great Review. Their fabric is crazy awesome.

  18. I really dig the look of this bag, beautiful
