Unsatisfied with the norm, Ake Nordin created his first backpack from a wooden frame. His design improved weight distribution across the back & allowed him to carry more in the bag. This led him to start Fjällräven in 1960 and the company still applies the same design principles now. Nordin was impressed by the lifestyle of the endangered Arctic fox & Fjällräven uses it as the company symbol on all gear.
The bag loads from the top & is of retro design. It features real leather straps for the main compartment & side pockets. Extra straps have been included for spare equipment & waist support. This vintage Fjällräven backpack is available at Assembly New York.
