Straight backs are healthy backs! Fjällräven launched its Kånken as early as 1978 to help prevent postural problems among Swedish schoolchildren. The backpack soon became an indispensable part of traditional and forest kindergartens in the country. More than 35 years later, Fjällräven's bestseller has saved millions of children from spinal damage. This is still continuing, not least because the backpack has proven itself for school and work use as well as on excursions and trips.
The backpack is made of durable, lightweight Vinylon F, which repels dirt and moisture. Thanks to the large zip opening, the spacious main compartment is easy to pack. The two flat side compartments and the zippered front compartment are ideal for everything you need to get to hand quickly when you're on the go. When not in use, the PE foam seat cushion disappears in the rear inner compartment, where it prevents the contents of the backpack from pressing through to the back. As soon as you want to take a break, it's easy to take out.
The simple yet practical carrying system consists of handles on the top and narrow, adjustable shoulder straps. The logo on the front is reflective. Inside the main compartment there is an address label.
Vinylon F requires no coating. By absorbing moisture better than any other synthetic fibre, Vinylon F swells like a natural fibre and fills the spaces in the fabric. The fabric is therefore waterproof due to its structure, which makes a coating superfluous. The result is a lighter and more durable material. In addition, Vinylon F has a high abrasion resistance, which ensures that it proves its durability and functionality year after year.
