At the end of the 1970s reports started emerging of increasing numbers of children suffering from back pain as a result of the shoulder bags that were the fashion at the time. In order to help prevent back problems Fjällräven’s Åke Nordin created a lightweight, basic, durable backpack with plenty of room for all the essentials for a day at school.
The Fjallraven Kånken Backpackwas launched in 1978 in collaboration with the Swedish Guide and Scout Association. Designed with many simple clear functions it soon became a common sight at pre-schools and nature schools around the country. The idea of using a backpack quickly spread as did the Kånken.
The Kanken is just as popular today and an excellent choice for school, outings or biking to work. Made out of a durable lightweight fabric the large main compartment, with a large opening, makes it easy to put in and take out items. This backpack also includes two side pockets, 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.
