Fjallraven's Kanken backpack is the classic that will always be cool.
Straight backs are happy backs. Kånken was launched in 1978 to spare the backs of school children. Back problems had begun to appear in increasingly younger age groups and shoulder bags were popular. Kånken has many simple, clear functions. The backpack soon became a common sight at pre-schools and nature schools around the country. The idea of using a backpack quickly spread, as did Kånken. It is just as popular today, and an excellent choice for school, outings or biking to work. Kånken is made out of durable, lightweight Vinylon F. The large main compartment with a large opening makes it easy to put in/take out items. Two side pockets and a zippered pocket in the front. Handle at the top, narrow, supple shoulder straps, sitting pad in the pocket in the back and logo that doubles as a reflector.
The pioneer of modern-day mountaineering equipment, Fjällräven (Swedish for "arctic fox") was founded over 60 years ago and it's still designing with the same dedication to ingenuity today. They continue to find smart, innovative solutions to make every adventure an unforgettable one.
