The Backpack of the Season is Fjllrven

This summer, opt for a backpack that is equally at home on hiking trails as it is at summer festivals.

Everyone needs a great pack to tote around this summer. With the May Long Weekend rapidly approaching, you cannot go camping without the colourful and iconic styling of the Fjllrven Knken backpack. Same goes for hitting up local music festivals – the pack is ideal for schlepping your festival guides, water bottles and snacks around town and looking good while you are at it.

These backpacks were originally created in Sweden for school children in 1978. Since then they’ve become a classic for anyone who loves clean Scandinavian design and comfort. Designed to improve on back pain Sweden’s school children were suffering, these lightweight bags were able to pack away all of their books and belongings (and now laptops) without causing major back issues. With plenty of colours available and seven different variations on the original design (ranging in price from $80 to $130), you’ll be able to find the perfect Knken for you.
