What is the difference between a backpack and a rucksack?
The word rucksack is often used interchangeably with the word backpack. A rucksack is a kind of backpack specifically designed to carry large, heavy loads over long distances, and is often associated with hiking or trekking. Here at Fjällräven, we use the term backpack for all our bags that are carried on one’s back, even our largest, most durable trekking models with the most advanced features. This is because backpack is the more prominent term globally.
I’m a professional – can I wear a backpack to work?
Absolutely! The days of exclusively seeing professionals with briefcases are long gone. Many of Fjällräven’s backpacks are designed to safely carry a laptop computer and your other tech gadgets, documents and work essentials. They are practical when commuting and many professionals prefer backpacks for their ergonomic benefits. So now you just have to choose what will fit in with the culture of your workplace – will it be a playful classic Kånken Laptop 15” in cobalt blue or the discreet and stylish Norrvåge Foldsack made from recycled wool in granite grey?
