Torn stitching, broken zippers, worn out handle, we’ve all been there! Or have we?… Fjällräven backpack owners beg to differ! The key to the Fjällräven backpack is the material it’s made of, G-1000, a densely woven fabric made from 65% polyester and 35% cotton.
According to the fine folk at Fjällräven, G-1000 is a “well-proven outdoor classic that will prepare you for all types of adventures, all year round, without limitations.” But wait! There’s plenty more to these gems than just their innovative G-1000 material…

Kanken Backpack Style
While Fjällräven designers place a heavy emphasis on practicality and durability, they don’t skimp on style either! Both the Kanken and Kanken No.2 (pictured) backpacks have established themselves as popular fashion accessories worldwide.
The Kanken No.2 re-envisages the style of the original Kanken and is stylishly finished with a detailed leather trim. At its core, the Fjällräven style is simple and understated, with a smooth touch of Swedish elegance. Additionally, Fjällräven regularly release newly updated styles of their most popular packs (including limited edition releases), so be sure to keep an eye out for these to drop!
Kanken Backpack Versatility
From everyday use to travel or hiking, there’s a Fjällräven for everyone! Importantly, most Fjällräven packs offer multifaceted usability, and are designed to stand up to the wear and tear of regular outdoor use.
For example, the Foldsack No.1 (pictured) and Rucksack No.21 both offer spacious top-loading main compartments, padded carrying support, and laptop storage, up to 15″. Moreover, they are both made of Heavy Duty G-1000 material for long-lasting usability. Some Fjällräven packs are also equipped with a seat pad, located in the back pocket, that can be taken out when you need to sit down and take a break!
Kanken Backpack Durability
As mentioned earlier, durability is the cornerstone of all Fjällräven products. For the most part, this is thanks to hardwearing G-1000 material used in production. Since it was launched in 1968, G-1000 has steadily evolved to be available in five different versions. Of which, G-1000 Heavy Duty is particularly relevant to backpacks.
G-1000 Heavy Duty takes durability to a new level by incorporating Greenland Wax to reinforce areas that are susceptible to extra hard wear. For those after a rugged pack that incorporates Fjällräven’s G-1000 Heavy Duty technology, check out the Rucksack No.21 (pictured).
