Straight backs are happy backs!
The Fjällräven 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.
The Kånken No. 2 is made from durable, double-waxed G-1000® HeavyDuty with an inside back pocket in G-1000® Lite. Just like its predecessor, it is a durable everyday backpack, just as practical to use on the way to school or work as when on an outing or out travelling.
The main compartment has a generous opening that makes it easy to pack and take things out. The back pocket has a padded sitting pad in G-1000® HeavyDuty so a comfortable rest is never far away. Two open pockets on the sides and a zippered pocket on the front. Details and handles in leather, shoulder straps in textile.
Impregnation can be easily enhanced with Greenland Wax, something that also further increases durability.
