Practical semi-soft travel bag that can be carried on the back and that has room for everything you need for a few nights away. Well-planned storage means quick access to things you need close at hand and minimises time spent in security checks and aeroplane aisles. Padded shoulder straps make it comfortable to carry and easy to navigate steps, cobbled streets, snowy paths or uneven terrain. If you want to keep the bag streamlined, for example when checking in for a flight, you can easily stow the shoulder straps away. The outside is made from hardwearing, durable G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco in recycled polyester and organic cotton with handles in natural-coloured leather. Foam padding around the entire bag protects contents and makes the pack sturdy, and the inside is lined with light polyamide fabric. The main compartment has a robust zipper that opens the bag entirely, and the zippered mesh walls keep contents in place so you can get a good overview. Several smaller pockets with zippers can be used to stow a passport, jewellery and small items you want to keep extra safe. There is an extra convenient pocket at the top that can be accessed from inside when the bag is open as well as from outside via a zippered opening. This is a great place to stow things you want easily accessible when travelling, for example a Travel Toiletry Bag (art 25513) that can also be used as a packbag for electronics, books, earphones, toothbrush and anything else you need. A computer can be kept safe close to your back in a separate padded compartment that also has an internal pocket for an iPad, notepad and other small items. In addition, there is a fleece-lined zippered pocket at the top for your phone as well as a flat zippered pocket at the lower front. The zippers for the main compartment and the computer compartment can be locked with a padlock (not included). In total, it has a pack volume of approx. 35 litres and its dimensions are accepted as carry-on by most airlines.
In the 1950’s, 14 year-old Ake Nordin from Ornskoldsvik in Northern Sweden spent more time outdoors than indoors. After many long treks in the mountains, Ake decided the backpacks at the time were unsatisfactory and took matters into his own hands by building a wooden frame. This evenly distributed weight across his back so the pack did not end up uneven, pear-shaped, and uncomfortable. It also meant he could carry more weight with ease. Ake’s innovation quickly caught on and in 1960 Fjallraven became the first to commercially make and distribute framed backpacks.
Fjallraven means Arctic Fox in Swedish, honoring the small and highly adaptable predator that lives in the Swedish mountains under the harshest conditions. From the small town of Ornskoldsvik, Fjallraven has now expanded to every corner in the world. The fundamental ideas remain the same; provide functional, durable, and timeless equipment to make the outdoors more enjoyable for all. We continue to find smart, innovative solutions to make every adventure an unforgettable one.
Ake built his first framed backpack in his basement with his mother’s sewing machine. Using strong cotton fabric for the pack, he attached the wooden frame using leather straps and used calfskin for the support straps. Not only was the pack more comfortable and distributed weight evenly, it also increased ventilation between his back and the pack. Soon after, during a trip up North, Ake’s invention caught the attention of the indigenous Sami people who spent weeks at a time high up in the mountains. They asked Ake to build them a backpack and after that a tent. Fjallraven had found its beginning.

This makes it all the more important for us to take responsibility for every decision we make, whether we are in our home in Ornskoldsvik in northern Sweden or another corner of the world. One of the most important aspects of this is our responsibility toward everyone that works in the development and production of our equipment.
