Fjallraven Kanken Backpack
Straight 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. 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.
Once you have a baby, you really have your hands full. And so the best bag (or diaper bag, we should say) for running around while carrying your baby is a backpack. It’s the style that’s the most hands-freeing. Choose your favorite color for this super styling backpack.
You can hold a lot of stuff in the big compartment, and the backpack comes with a foam seat pad (perfect for impromptu picnics.) It’s lightweight and durable. This is the diaper bag you want if you’ll be babywearing often as it won’t weigh you down.
Vinylon F fabric has been used in Kanken day packs for the past 25 years. While being a synthetic fibre, Vinylon F still maintains the properties of natural fibres. Most conventional backpacks need a coating to become water resistant. This provides a short term waterproofing but loses its properties over time. Vinylon F needs no extra coating and absorbs moisture better than any other synthetic fibre. It swells like a natural fibre making the weave more dense when wet. This gives waterproof qualities eliminating the need for coating.
