What is Kanken?

The Fjällräven Kånken is Fjällräven's best-selling product. It was originally developed as a reaction to the increasing number of reports that Swedish school children were developing back problems from their more traditional bags. The lightweight and rectangular yet spacious backpack, which was released in 1978, was Fjällräven's attempt to solve this problem. Explore our wide assortment of the Fjallraven Kånken product! Choose between different sizes, colours and materials - but still with the same iconic look as the classic from 1978.

Reminder that IKEA now sells very similar backpacks (without branding).

I bought one of the Kanken Minis for my child during a Sportchek sale and it's meh, I wouldn't go out of my way to buy another one. There isn't really anything about it that makes it ergonomic or comfortable. It has thin straps. There is a foam insert in the back of the backpack which is removable and you aren't supposed to throw it out, and I almost did thinking it was just temporary padding to keep the shape of the pack in store displays. To me, it's really mostly just a fashion item...you buy it for the branding

Some of the other Fjallraven backpacks are a lot more functional and comfortable. I have a Raven 28 backpack and I liked it a lot. It looks understated and has a lot of good compartments and pockets. I used it as a carryon bag and it held a lot of things.
RFD is not just about saving money, it's about the thrill of the hunt and getting the stuff I want without paying full price like Joe Shmoe did.
This applies to everyday items as well as high end items that I don't really need.

I didn't understand the big appeal of it, but the shape of it makes great sense and really handy for airport travel (remember that?). I can stuff a whole jacket/hoodie in, tablet, laptop and doesn't feel ridiculously large.

Does anyone know where the Kanken is made? I’m assuming China or a SE Asian country

I'm sure scandanavians don't really understand the hype for fjallraven stuff. to them, it's just another brand that's nothing near the status it's gotten in North America.

To them it was the standard backpack for kids lol. I'm sure their kids think it's boring and lame, and rather have something else that's not so functional.

Much like Canada Goose and similar parkas in general, I remember back in high school we called it the grandpa jacket and goose jackets were $250-300 each.
