As a young boy, Fjällräven founder Åke Nordin enjoyed spending time outdoors and he began at an early age to improve and develop his own outdoor equipment. He was least impressed with the backpacks that were available, so as a 14-year-old he hammered together his first frame backpack, and this backpack eventually became the start of his company, Fjällräven. Since then our backpacks have been praised by users around the world and even won prestigious awards.

We have gathered here some information that can be good to know about backpacks – both before buying one and before heading out into the outdoors.
