Fjallraven-Kanken

In 1960 Fjällräven introduced the world to the framed backpack. Amazingly, the Fjallraven was invented by a 14 year-old—Åke Nordin from Örnsköldsvik in Northern Sweden, an outdoorsy lad who liked to be comfortable.

So its fitting that the company's most popular product, the Fjallraven-Kanken, was designed for Swedish school children in 1978. The Kånken has since become an iconic backpack throughout Europe for both children and adults.

The Kanken can be easily carried as a backpack or a bag and has a removable seat pad; the reflector is the very cool arctic fox (fjallraven) logo. It has front and side pockets — and a charming, old-fashioned name and address label stitched inside.
