In 1960, Åke Nordin established Fjällräven, meaning “Artic Fox”, with the goal of making nature more accessible to more people. Fjällräven offer functional outdoor equipment to make trips into the outdoors more comfortable, by using innovative, smart solutions, improved materials, and decreasing weight. Their range of backpacks has revolutionised the industry by using seemingly outdated materials alongside cutting edge technology to create bags that not only make the outdoors vastly more accessible, but with an inherent robustness which is difficult to match.
From a small room in the basement in Örnsköldsvik, Sweden, Fjällräven Tents are now found in almost all corners of the world. Despite being light in weight, Fjällräven Backpacking Tents don’t just follow the fleeting trends, but stand for durability year in and year out. Fjällräven governing principles are: “offering functional equipment for more - and more comfortable - journeys in the outdoors.'
Fjallraven also produce immensely popular lifestyle pieces, such as the kanken, which we think get better as they age!
