Backpacks from Fjallraven are made of high-quality waterproof material. They are light in weight and are compact in design. They have adjustable shoulder straps and handles that are comfortable. In addition, they have a large U-shaped zip which allows for easy access to the main compartment.

Although the Kanken's most obvious feature is its simple and elegant design, it has many other desirable features as well. For instance, the backpack has a separate laptop compartment. Furthermore, it comes with a cushion for a picnic or camping seat.
