Ever since it was introduced in 1978, Kånken has defined the idea of Fjällräven. The Kånken rucksack was first introduced in 1978 to help prevent back problems among Swedish school children and quickly became a common sight at preschools and nature schools throughout the country. Today, the iconic backpack has straightened millions of backs across the globe and has become one of Fjällräven's most beloved products. This classic backpack is equally suited to journeys to and from school or work, as it is to trekking and travelling.
Available in a range of colours you can shop the classic Kånken backpack online at Nordic Outdooer. With a zipper that opens the entire main compartment and a smaller front pocket the Kanken is constructed from a very hardwearing vinylon fabric. With a removable seat cover at the back, simple shoulder straps and handle on top the bag is completed with the iconic patch logo.
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. 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.

Vynylon F is the original Kanken material and has proven it's durability over the decades. In addition to its longevity Vynilon F is water resistant without using any PFC based water repellents. Even though it is a synthetic fibre it acts much like a natural fiber and swells up when it gets damp. This tightens the weave and provides water resistance.
