The Fjallraven Kanken is a Scandinavian-designed 16L backpack that has that mixture of functional features, minimalist aesthetics, and fashionable colors that the Swedes seem to understand so well. It's made with a robust water-resistant Vinylon F fabric, which will stand up to long-term repeated day-to-day use while helping to protect the devices and gear that you choose to store inside it.
Simple, durable and versatile
The Kanken comes with durable shoulder straps and a convenient top grab handle, giving you plenty of options for carrying it.
The main compartment has a pad that rests protects your back when you're carrying the bag, but when you come to rest you can use it as handy seat pad for lunchtime picnics or al fresco coffees with friends.
All the essential pockets and features
The two side pockets are ideal for your water bottle and snacks, while the good-sized zippered front pocket is the perfect stash spot for your keys, wallet, or anything else you need quick access to.
The Kanken backpack is a bit of a design classic that still works as well today as the day it was designed, and it looks great too.
Give the Kanken a coat of Fjallraven's Greenland G-1000 Wax for increased weather resistance.
Note: It is only G-1000 that can be waxed. So take extra care when waxing garments to avoid getting wax on non-G-1000 materials. For more information follow Fjallraven's instructions.
