Product description

Fjällräven Kånken No. 2 Backpack black (black)

Straight backs are healthy backs! Kånken was released in 1978 to help prevent back problems seen among Swedish school children. Now over 35 years later Kånken has straightened out millions of backs and become one of Fjällräven’s most popular products, loved by generations of users. Kånken No. 2 is made from durable, double-waxed G-1000 HeavyDuty with an inside back pocket in G-1000 Lite. Just like its predecessor, it is a durable everyday backpack, just as practical to use on the way to school or work as when on an outing or out travelling. The main comparent has a generous opening that makes it easy to pack and take things out. The back pocket has a padded sitting pad in G-1000 HeavyDuty so a comfortable rest is never far away. Two open pockets on the sides and a zippered pocket on the front. Details and handles in leather, shoulder straps in textile. 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.


  • With leather handles and details
  • Shoulder straps made of textile material
  • Upholstery made of HeavyDuty G-1000 in the rear compartment
  • can be waterproofed with Greenland wax to prolonging its life
  • durable, double-waxed G-1000 HeavyDuty
