    Straight backs are happy backs. Kånken was launched in 1978 to spare the backs of school children. Back problems had begun to appear in increasingly younger age groups and shoulder bags were popular. Kånken has many simple, clear functions. The backpack soon became a common sight at pre-schools and nature schools around the country. The idea of using a backpack quickly spread, as did Kånken. It is just as popular today, and an excellent choice for school, outings or biking to work. Kånken is made out of durable, lightweight Vinylon F. The large main compartment with a large opening makes it easy to put in/take out items. Two side pockets and a zippered pocket in the front. Handle at the top, narrow, supple shoulder straps, sitting pad in the pocket in the back and logo that doubles as a reflector.

    1. Sturdy and carries a lot
      Product rating
      Great bag! I'm a bike messenger from Toronto and use this bag everyday. It fits all my envelopes and also has room for my water bottle. I was a bit worried about the size of the straps but they was pleasantly surprised, the bag sits right on top of my back and doesn't irritate me while i'm riding! This bag also gets used as my over night carrier, the main compartment is huge and fits about 2 and half days worth of clothing. Overall,this bag is sturdy and can carry a lot. Would recommend it!
    2. Great bag for school
