Why we made this
Designed for an active lifestyle, this iconic Macpac backpack is compatible with modern technology and is ideal for commuting in the city or hiking in the hills.
  • Product Description
    Comfortable and compact, the Kahuna was originally based off our popular Kahu Pack, but has now become an iconic Macpac backpack in its own right. With an expandable laptop sleeve, this simple panel loader is all you need when getting around town or hiking in the hills on the weekend. Made from oxford nylon fabric, the Kahuna offers basic weather resistance during summer squalls. The lightly padded harness features breathable mesh for warm weather adventures, while the front and internal zip pockets are perfect for stashing small essentials and keeping your wallet safe and out of sight. At 18 litres, the Kahuna isn't too big or too small — it's just right.

  • Care
    You are best to clean your pack with a natural, non-detergent soap and a soft-bristled brush
    Suitable soap types are: pure soap, vegetable soap and Nikwax Tech Wash®
    Rinse the pack well and dry it in a well-ventilated area out of direct sunlight
    Do not put your pack in the washing machine as this will void your warranty
    Always try to keep the zip teeth as clean as possible
    Wash zip teeth with fresh, clean water and lubricate with a silicon lubricant suitable for use on fabrics

Small but takes a lot
Great little pack. Long and slim, hugs the body well. Although looks small it can take a lot. Used it as our personal bag for a recent trip to Europe and was perfect! I have 3!

Love it and it satisfied my expectation..I recommend this bag for local NZ resident and non NZ resident.
The bag looks pretty tough, comfy at my back, and I definitely love the new Zealand map embroidered on it....

Brilliant backpack
Fantastic design and manufacture. This is the most comfortable backpack I have ever owned. It fits really snug against the curve of my back so even when packed full it still feels light. There is no waist strap, but with the fabulous design and shape, I don't need one. I thought I might miss the external pockets for my water bottle, but I have found it is fine to pack the water inside. The pockets inside the zipped compartments stop all the little things, like car keys, falling to the bottom. I did not think that six months after buying a backpack that I would be getting back online to sing its praises. Great work, Macpac.

Is it suitable for Girls?

BEST ANSWER: I can't think of any reason why it shouldn't be fine for girls. The item is both lightweight and durable.
