Select Color / Size

The Second Generation.

In 1978, Fjällräven released the Kånken backpack to prevent back problems for Swedish school children. Since then, the bag has become a classic, known for its distinct style and long-lasting durability - all while helping healthy backs from Scandinavia to San Francisco. This Kånken No. 2 is made of rugged, double-waxed G-1000 HeavyDuty and has an inside back pocket in G-1000 Lite fabric. This construction makes it extremely durable, and the fabric can be coated with Greenland Wax to improve its weather protective properties and lifespan. The main compartment houses the majority of its 16L storage capacity. Inside, a removable padded seat provides back panel comfort in durable G-1000 fabric. The pack-exterior features two flat side pockets along with a zippered front pocket for your essentials. The top has leather carrying handles that snap-closed with a button. Durable and adjustable padded shoulder straps ensure carrying comfort.
