Fjällräven's absolute most-sold backpack first saw the light of day in 1978. This slightly larger model has a little more room than the classic 16-litre bag. Padded shoulder straps. For school, day trips or biking to work. Hardwearing, lightweight Vinylon F. Large main compartment with large opening makes it easy to put in/take out items. One side pocket and a zippered pocket in the front. Handles at the top and narrow, supple shoulder straps.
Vinylon F is the functional fabric that has made Kanken daypacks seemingly immortal for the last 30 years. While being a synthetic fiber, Vinylon F shares many benefits with natural fibres. Fabrics used for backpacks usually need a coating to become water resistent. This is functional initially, but the coating inevitably loses its waterproofness over time. Vinylon F, on the other hand, behaves like a natural fibre and swells when it gets damp. Moisture actually makes the fabric weave tighter, so that it resists water without the need of a coating.
The result is a lighter and more durable material. Combined with excellent resistance to abrasion, Vinylon F is a fabric that continues to prove its durable functionality, year after year.
