Fjallraven’s Kanken Backpacks For Back-to-School {Giveaway – $80 Value}

backpacks

Founded in 1960, Fjällräven is one of the most iconic Scandinavian brands. The Swedish outdoor brand is known for clean, functional and high-quality backpacks, including the Kånken backpack. Originally designed for Swedish school children in 1978, the Kånken has become a beloved icon for kids and adults around the world.  Featuring durable Vinylon F material that repels moisture better than any other synthetic fabric and a variety of colourful choices the Kånken will have you heading back to class in style. 

We received a Kånken backpack for our son and he is now ready to go back to school. I was debating wether to get a Kånken mini (7L) or the classic Kånken (16L) for him and in the end I am glad we went with the classic Kånken. The classic fits everything he wants to take with him when going to school, including his snack bag and it is super comfortable. He will start Kindergarden next year and I am sure it will be the perfect fit for him then too. The great thing about a high quality backpack is that it will last a long time!

BACKPACK

backpack

The classic Kånken backpack features one zipper that opens the entire main compartment, a removable seat cover at the back and simple shoulder straps and handle on the top. The logo in the front of the bag also doubles as a reflector.

Little ones shouldn’t be wearing shoulder bags because they can create back problems so using a backpack is important. Kånken backpacks are not only great for school, they are also an excellent choice for outings, biking to work/school and more. Be sure to check out their website and their selection of styles for both children and adults. They have so many colourful choices! 

The Kånken classic backpack is available for $79.99 CDN. Click HERE for more details and to purchase.

Win it: One very lucky Canadian reader will win a Kånken classic backpack – ($79.99 value – Colour of their choice, exciting!). Enter to win below via Rafflecopter. Good Luck!

    I would choose the Graphite-UN Blue. I love the colour of the UN Blue, but I like that this bag has the Graphite on the trim and pocket, unlike the plain UN Blue one – I think that would help hide the dirt that is bound to get on those touch-points of the bag. And the 2 colours together look great!
