This is the Fjällraven Känken Classic, the design that Fjällraven launched in 1978 to spare the backs of school children. Shoulder bags were common at the time and back problems had begun to appear in increasingly younger age groups. The Fjällraven Känken backpack soon became a common sight at schools all over the country. Today, it remains an excellent choice for school, outings or biking to work.


The Fjallraven 13" Kanken Classic Backpack 16L's large main compartment is opened by a U-shaped zip, which makes it easy to access your stowed-away items. There are also two side pockets, a zippered front pocket and an internal pocket with a foam pad for comfort. Loopy haul handles, narrow shoulder straps and the round Fjällraven Känken logo are other iconic features.

Fjallraven 13" Kanken Classic Backpack 16L is made out of durable, lightweight Vinylon F. Although a synthetic material (it is made of a fibre called polyvinyl alcohol), it has certain properties that are otherwise mostly found in natural materials.

  • Made of Vinylon F, Fjällraven's hard-wearing synthetic fabric
  • U zipper that opens the entire main compartment
  • Logo doubles as a reflector
  • Simple shoulder straps
  • Haul handles on top
  • Front zippered sleeve for quick access items
  • Inside pocket with seat pad can fit notebooks, iPads and valuables
  • Side pockets for odd items like sunglasses and thin water bottles
  • Care Label: Clean with a soft brush and lukewarm water

Technical Specifications

  • External Dimensions: 13 cm x 27 cm x 38 cm

Looks great, carries more than you think...one major flaw

I've had this backpack for a year now so feel like I've had the opportunity to really test it. I wanted a backpack for 'all purposes' - classy enough for work and practical for casual/everyday use. I got this in a dark grey to blend into most situations. Pros: Looks great, classic design. Huge plus is the ample carrying capacity due to the square 'suitcase' style design. Flat bottom suited carrying a cooler lunchbox and folding clothes/shoes to carry was easy. Cons: Unfortunately the deal break and I have since donated this bag. The straps which feel like smooth nylon for some reason just destroy my tops. You cannot wear cotton, silk or tshirts. For this reason, this bag just stresses me out as I'm not sure which tops/clothing I can or cannot wear with it. The rubbing is at bottom of the straps but also high on the upper back when they crossover. Major design flaw.
