This backpack style has been provided to school kids in Scandinavia for 40 years. They worked so well that those original students have grown up to use their school bags as adults! As a result, the Fjallraven Kanken has become known as a chic European backpack.
I’m not European, but I love mine for various reasons!
- Simple design and colors are easy to style
- Full-open zipper makes opening and digging inside super easy
- Long side storage pockets are deep enough to prevent theft
- Front pocket is easy to access for keys, phone, or wallet without taking the bag off
- Strong straps are adjustable for kids or adults and won’t tear with wear
- Fabric is strong and easy to clean
I feel comfortable taking my Fjallraven Kanken anywhere, so it’s been all over the world as my day-to-day bag for 3 years! It’s the perfect size to fit everything I need without feeling bulky, and the perfect sleekness to match anything I wear.
