The Kånken has been around since 1978. It was Fjällrävens idea to design a backpack that would spare the backs of school children. Today the Kånken enjoys cult status not only in Sweden but in style-conscious cities all over the planet.
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 leave space for all your belongings. Details and handles are made of leather, shoulder straps of textile. Impregnation can be easily enhanced with Greenland Wax, something that also further increases durability.
From being a staple in every Swedish household in the ‘70s, Fjällräven has slowly but surely captured the hearts of outdoor enthusiasts the world over. For over 50 years Fjällräven has been working towards making your experience in the outdoors as comfortable as possible whilst focusing on minimizing their environmental impact. Engaged in trying to save the endangered arctic fox, everything Fjällräven do is done with the well being of the world around us in mind.
