There is a flash sale for August on all Fjallraven Kanken Bags.
Fjallraven Kanken Bags are not only stunning, durable and
practical. They were designed more than 30 years ago and we have a wide range
of colours for you to choose from on The Sporting Lodge.
One of the secrets seem to be the fabric they have been manufactured with.
Vinylon F is the functional fabric that has made Kånken daypacks seemingly
immortal for the last 25 years.
While being a synthetic fiber, Vinylon F still has many of the positive
properties of natural fibers. Fabrics conventionally used for backpacks need a
coating in order to become water resistant. However functional initially, this
coating loses its properties over time, making the backpack less waterproof.
Vinylon F does not need a coating. Absorbing moisture better than any other
synthetic fiber. Vinylon F swells like a natural fiber, thus making the weave
more dense when it's raining. This gives the fabric waterproof qualities by
construction eliminating the need for a coating.
It's both light and extremely durable, making Vinylon F an unbeatablematerial.
The fabric will continue to prove its durable functionality year after year.
Vinylon F has a ratio in the combination of being light and extremely durable
that is unbeatable by any more modern material. The weight is 145 g/m2 which
compares to most modern very light materials used in backpacks but these
materials can only survive and deliver half the result in hard durability
The Kanken's popularity is growing around the world and Vinylon is one secret
to the success of the Kanken by Fjallraven.
