DescriptionStraight 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. Kånken is made out of durable, lightweight Vinylon F. The large main compartment with a large opening makes it easy to put in/take out items. Two side pockets and a zippered pocket in the front. Handle at the top, narrow, supple shoulder straps, sitting pad in the pocket in the back and logo that doubles as a reflector.

"I bought my Kånken (black one) at about 1980 in Sweden. This one has served me very well with great pleasure.Ferret, 6/30/2016
Since one of the long zip's gets blocked once in a while, a litlle anoying, I got a new one for my birthday this time a darkblue one,
It is certainly a very handy back,
so I suppose that this one will serve for at least another 36 years.

"I've had this backpack for around 2 years now, and it's been the best £67 that I've ever spent.lucia, 3/15/2016
I love the colour and since purchasing it, I've found that it's rather unique in comparison to the black. It's sturdy and hard-wearing, as well as being fashionable and comfortable.
I think I'll be sticking with Fjallraven when buying any bag from now on.
Treat yourself - it's definitely worth it."
