Kånken 16L Backpack



Kånken 16L Backpack


Select Color/Size

Straight backs are happy backs. Kånken was launched in 1978 to spare the backs of school children. Back problems had begun to appear in increasingly younger age groups and shoulder bags were popular. Kånken has many simple, clear functions. The backpack soon became a common sight at pre-schools and nature schools around the country. The idea of using a backpack quickly spread, as did Kånken. It is just as popular today, and an excellent choice for school, outings or biking to work.

Ever since Fjällräven was founded just over 50 years ago, the company has had one strong driving force: to develop products that make it easier for people to enjoy the countryside.

Simple, classic and rugged

The classic Kånken backpack features a YKK zipper that opens the entire main compartment, making it easy to put in or take out items, and two side pockets and one front zippered pocket for quick and easy access. The simple, supple shoulder straps and top handle are made to carry your load comfortably, while the pack is constructed from very hardwearing and water repellent Vinylon fabric. Last but not least, the logo of this unisex backpack is reflective for increased security.
