Originally designed for Swedish school children in 1978, the Kanken from Fjallraven has become a well-loved and iconic backpack for children and adults around the world.
Ideal for college or the daily commute, this Scandinavian design classic is made from the brand's Vinylon F fabric, which is highly durable and repels moisture better than any other synthetic fabric.
The backpack features top carry handles, adjustable shoulder straps, two side pockets, and a zipped front pouch. It's finished with the brand label sewn on the front.

Unpackaged weight of the product
Fjällräven (which is the Swedish name for the arctic fox) was founded in the 1960s when founder Åke Nordin had been contemplating manufacturing a climbing jacket, but he didn’t have the right fabric. With a mountain hike impending, Åke took a tent fabric sample and turned it into the very first Fjällräven jacket.
Perhaps most famous for their Greenland Jackets and Kånken Backpacks, Fjällräven stands out as a company focused on fashionable yet practical products.More from Fjällräven
