The Fjallraven Kanken backpack was designed in 1978 to reduce back problems experienced by Swedish schoolchildren who would carry their school essentials in cumbersome shoulder bags. Since its humble beginnings, the Kanken bag is now globally renowned for its practicality, durability and versatility. From school trips to treks, this high performance Kanken rucksack is ideal for active lives. You can shop Fjallraven Kanken backpacks safe in the knowledge that they have been sustainably sourced and manufactured with next to no waste. The Kanken bag features handles and shoulder straps for easy transportation, a reflector for safety and most practically, a cushioned seat pad in the back compartment prevents back pain and ensures you’re never too far away from a well earned rest. With a series of new designs since the 70s, the modern day Kanken has been adapted to fit a laptop and has a new extended range of colours to suit every style.
