Hits for "Equipment Backpacks Bags"
A young nature boy with visions – and backpacks by Fjallraven
Ake Nordin the founder of the Swedish Outdoor brand Fjallraven was only 14 when he hiked with his most important things through the marvelous nature in Sweden. The backpacks were bulky and uncomfortable at this time and the weight hung on his shoulders like a stone. “There has to be a better way”, he thought and so the idea of “easier carrying” was born. Immediately after his tour he designed the first backpack with a wooden frame. After trying it was clear: The heavy weight was balanced much better and carrying was even more comfortable. A further advantage of his construction was the air circulation, which resulted because of the space between back and backpack what increased the wearing comfort significant. This first modern backpack by the young men from Sweden is the base for every modern backpack until today!
The probable most individual parts of the outdoor equipment
The right backpack is something really individual because your body decides which carrying system is the best for your plans. But also the region and the type of your tour play an important role. Therefore Fjallraven designs backpacks which can be used even in remoted regions and on very long trips. Among big and well equipped trekkingbackpacks there are also hiking backpacks for one-day tours, daypacks and some different bags for the little adventures of every day.
For huge adventures
The trekkingbackpacks by Fjallraven are particularly suitable for long trekking tours and journeys. The elaborated carrying systems are adaptable, they balance heavy weights perfectly (because of compression straps) and they make carrying more comfortable. For women there are specific models, which are fitted to the feminine anatomy (smaller shoulder straps, special cut, back length, back width, chest strap, lighter weight,…). The package volume goes from 40 liters up to incredible 100 liters! Some backpacks have a smart front access, which makes it easier to get to deeper positioned outdoor equipment.
Back to the roots with Fjallraven
In 1960 Fjallraven revolutionized the trekkingbackpacks with using aluminum for the carrying systems. Aluminum is very light and nevertheless stable. Nowadays sustainability and environmental protection become more and more important. Therefore Fjallraven uses for the popular trekking backpack Kajka an innovative and environmental-friendly frame construction made of laminated birch wood since 2013. This reduces the CO2 emissions by up to 90% without losing stability or lightness! The fabric for the Kajka backpack is made of extremely robust Vinyl F, which swells when it becomes wet. With that it is durable waterproof without using laminations of polyurethane or silicone. Other trekking or hiking backpacks by Fjallraven are also made of hard-wearing materials. For example ripstop (Abisko, Funäs, Bergen, Friluft or Skule) or environment-friendly G-1000® HeavyDuty Eco which is made of recycled polyester and bio cotton (for example Kajpak). G-1000® Materials can be made weatherproof with the popular Greenland Wax.
