The Swedish brand Fjällräven is known worldwide for the Kanken backpack, among a few others that we've featured in this video. These bags are ready for all of your on-the-go needs because of how tough they're built!
Whether you choose to use the Kanken as a diaper bag, or as a general pack to take on adventures, this backpack has you covered. It comes in many different color options to suit any style. These bags are built tough with fabric that is water and scratch-resistant.
- It has two side slip pockets (which are perfect for baby bottles), a front zippered pocket, and one main zippered compartment.
- The Kanken is built with an ergonomic design, so with the adjustable straps, wearing it as a backpack is really comfortable. There is also a top carry handle to grab it quickly on the go!
- In the sleeve on the back wall of the Kanken, there is a removable seat pad. We actually recommend keeping this in for structure and comfort!
- The Kanken is super lightweight— it weighs less than one pound, which is a lot less than most diaper bags.
- It also comes in a mini size, which is great for shorter trips or for kids to use!
Next up is the Raven 28 Backpack.
- The Raven 28 is the perfect pack for people who love minimal yet functional bags. Like all Fjallraven bags, it’s incredibly durable. The Raven 28 is made of a polyester/cotton blend that they've named G-1000.
- It has a ton of pockets for organization, including: a slip pocket on each side for water bottles, a zippered front pocket, a fleece-lined top pocket (which is perfect for your phone and keys), and two really spacious zippered compartments with internal pockets. The main one is pretty wide for all your necessities! Another bonus is that it has a compartment to fit a laptop up to 15 inches.
- The shoulder straps are padded to keep things comfortable, and the top handle has a leather grip for quick grabbing.
Another bag that we carry is the Vardag Mini.
- This classic little backpack is made of that durable G-1000 fabric. It can be worn by adults and kids!
- It has long, adjustable shoulder straps that can be rolled up to keep them out of the way.
- It has a front zippered pocket with a diagonal design similar to the Raven 28. The main compartment has a long zipper and an inside pocket.
- Like the Kanken, it has that removable seat pad for structure and comfort.
Lastly, we’ll talk about the High Coast Kids Backpack.
- This is a durable, water-resistant backpack—perfect for kids between 6-9 years old. It has reflective details on each side to make sure your child is always visible.
- In addition to the padded shoulder straps, the base is padded, and you’ll notice that it includes a chest strap and a hip belt for better weight distribution.
- It has two main zippered compartments. The front pocket is waterproof internally in case you need to store wet clothing, and the back compartment has a laptop or folder sleeve and a pen holder.
- Another bonus is that it has a small top pocket behind the grab handle, perfect for storing keys or small valuables.
In terms of care, Fjallraven recommends washing these bags by hand, with lukewarm water and a soft brush to make sure the fabrics stay in good condition.
