Fjällräven Builds On Iconic Kånken

A Fjällräven Kånken backpack must be one of the most recognisable bags in the world. They’re so easy to spot. After all, there is only one Kånken, even if it comes in different shapes and sizes.

Over the years, different versions of this iconic product have been developed, the number of colours it comes in has increased and it’s seen the addition of new materials. Yet every single Kånken backpack has the same simple, timeless design that has been loved so muchsince the very first one saw the light of day in 1978.

And for 2020 it’s being joined by two new Kånken products. Kånken Totepack is the classic backpack’s new urban sibling. A spacious shoulder bag that thanks to its straps is actually two bags in one – it can be worn over your shoulder when catching the bus through town, or as a backpack when biking.

The tote version of Fjällräven’s iconic backpack offers two bags in one for convenient carrying.

It looks similar to the classic Kånken and the handy seat pad is included here – always ready for a rest in the park. Plus, it also has a secure sleeve for a 13-inch laptop. It has a zippered opening at the top and, on the outside, there is the front pocket, under the iconic logo.

The Hip Pack is made from the same durable Vinylon F as the original backpack and has the same iconic logo.

The other newcomer, Kånken Hip Pack, offers a neat way to carry valuables by fastening it around the waist/hips. On the inside there is a separate pocket and a key ring, and, on the outside, there are two zippered pockets for keeping valuables accessible.
