In the 1970’s, there was a surge of children suffering from back pain as a result of using inappropriate bags. In order to help prevent back problems, Fjallraven created a basic, lightweight & durable backpack with plenty of room for the essentials.
The Kanken has many clear, simple functions and it is just as popular today as it was back when it was first introduced. It is perfect for school, day trips or commutes to work. It is built from a durable & lightweight Vinylon F*. The large main compartment has a large opening to ensure that it’s easy to put in/take out items. You will also find two side pockets and a zippered pocket in the front. A handle is featured at the top for easy carrying as well as narrow, supple shoulder straps. A sitting pad can be found in the pocket at the back and the logo also doubles as a reflector.
*Kanken wouldn’t be Kanken without Vinylon F. This synthetic fibre has been used to make the classic everyday backpack (and our Kajka trekking backpack, too) since the beginning, and its durability is clearly proven.
Despite being a man-made fabric it functions like one created by nature. When Vinylon F fibres become damp they swell, making the weave tighter. So they resist rain showers without the need of a coating.
