I have always loved these Fjällräven backpacks ever since I first clapped eyes on them. I’m not really a backpack kind of person so I’ve never actually got around to getting one. Now out of necessity I am seriously considering one. Kånken backpacks are the Swedes bag of choice for schools kids (and the scouts).
As well as the spine-saving shape, the bags are made from the super-durable Vinylon F fabric. Every year over 200,000 of the bags are sold making them the best-selling backpacks in the world.
The Fjällräven Kånken is a ‘classic’ given its design has stayed the same since 1978 and whether you want military-green or Sunny-Delight-yellow there's a Kånken to suit everyone’s colour tastes. I think the warm yellow one has my name written on it.
