I was so tickled to see whole walls of Fjällräven Kånkens for sale in Selfridges in London. You see them all over in Sweden – on everyone from tiny kiddies to pensioners and trendsetters and hikers in between.
I am not a backpack person and even I have one. They are light, durable, washable, fold up small and are extremely well designed. They are not expensive and look better the more battered they are I always travel with one. See my previous article here – it has lovely photographs of the different users.
