Hardwearing Kånken backpack with a padded compartment for a laptop computer. Made from durable G-1000 HeavyDuty with leather details. Just like the original model, it is an everyday backpack with excellent longevity that is just as practical to use for school or work as on an outing or when travelling.The main compartment has a generous opening that makes it easy to pack and unpack. A separate, padded compartment with a zipper provides safe storage for a laptop computer (up to 15”).
Inside the backpack there is a back pocket with a padded seat pad in G-1000 HeavyDuty – easy to take out when you need to take a break. In addition, there are two open pockets on the sides and a zippered pocket on the front. Details and handles in leather, and padded shoulder straps for extra comfort when carrying a heavy load.
Impregnation can be easily enhanced with Greenland Wax, something that also further increases durability.
G-1000 Heavy Duty
G-1000 is robust, but G-1000 Heavy Duty goes one step further. It is impregnated with Greenland Wax on both sides, making it tougher than ever. But because it is less breathable than the original G-1000, Fjällräven uses it for products where durability is more important than air permeability. For example, as a reinforcing material in places that are particularly stressed and for many of the bags and backpacks.
65 % polyester, 35 % cotton. G-1000 Lite weighs less and is cooler than the original fabric. This makes it suitable for light hiking clothes for the summer and for travel clothes that have to endure a lot. The fabric is sewn with ripstop threads. This makes it very durable despite its relatively low weight.
