Nature is Waiting

Fjallraven Exceptionally Designed Shirts, Pants, Hiking Backpacks, Kanken Bags, & More

Founded on the idea that camping packs should be durable and wearable, Fjallraven was born to fulfill a need for high-quality hardworking outdoor equipment. As a child, founder Ake Nordin loved spending time outdoors, but struggled with his backpacking equipment. His pack wasn't structured enough to be worn comfortably, so he redesigned it. After military service and years of product testing, Ake opened a shop above his family's flat and called his new company Fjallraven, which means "Arctic Fox".

From humble beginnings, Fjallraven has grown to be the biggest outdoor apparel company in Scandinavia and loved by all Swedes for their quality construction, simple clean lines, and classic designs. Fjallraven backpacks, clothing, and outdoor equipment are all made using the highest production standards. They continually strive to expertly equip people for adventure, even in the modern world. Many Fjallraven fabrics are specially waxed and crafted to hold their own in both outdoor and urban life. While other companies are looking for the next best thing, Fjallraven sticks with what works - durable materials, quality construction, and classic design. At we love the durability of Fjallraven apparel and packs, their company mission, and the way they do business.

Fjallraven always strives to get their customers outside while also remaining aware of their environmental footprint, making them one of the most conscious, well made, and fashionable companies in the outdoor industry right now.

 Questions & Tips

Q: What is G-1000 Fabric and what does it do?

The densely woven fabric (65% polyester and 35% cotton of the highest quality) is treated with Greenland Wax. This combination makes G-1000 one of the world's best outdoor fabrics that offers both breath-ability and weather resistance.

Q: Do you have a sizing chart for Backpacks and Apparel?

Yes, we have sizing charts on the next tab ("Sizing") as well as specific sizing information on each product page.

Q: Can I wax my Kanken?

No. Kanken backpacks are not made of the waxable G-1000 fabric. They are made with Vinylon F, which we do not advise waxing.

Q: How do I clean my Kanken?

Avoid machine washing your Kanken. Machine washing would remove the water resistance! Instead, you should hand wash your Kanken with lukewarm water and a soft brush.
