So as winter has officially rolled around and I recently embarked on a brisk winters break to the stunning, yet chilly Copenhagen, I thought it best that I invest in a bag worthy of these harsh winters we've been getting recently.
Now I had already became aware of Fjällräven when UK Urban Outfitter stores started selling there Kånken bags autumn-ish 2014, but from the stores I had been in they only seemed to sell the bags in the woman's department, so me using common sense assumed that Fjällräven was a woman's only brand. Yet as my love of the style and look of these classic Kånken bags grew, my thirst to know more on the brand grew & I delved deep in the depths of researc...... well I googled the brand. And it quickly came to my attention that Fjällräven is sooo not just a ladies brand but in fact, very much unisex one! Bad Urban Outfitters for leading me astray! So upon this I jumped firmly on the Fjällräven Kånken band wagon and I am now a very proud owner of my very own shiny new yellow & dark blue classic Kånken! And from using it on my lasted trip to Copenhagen, Danmark! I can tell you that you all NEED to go get one of these backpacks ASAP! Seriously.
From someone who travels a lot and does not travel light with my abundance of cameras and maps and phones and scarves and gloves and other random stuff I feel is appropriate to take with me while on a 3 hour walking tour of the centre of Copenhagen, this backpack has been a serious life saver.
With its compact shape, waterproof material, cool style and bunch of handy compartments. It is most definitely a worthy travel companion. Coming in a wealth of colour combinations and looks there are plenty to choose from and make your own. Another feature I loved was how it fits your body. Personally I love a bag that I can wear on one shoulder but often I find it slides off a lot making it annoying but this backpack clings nicely & feels very secure. I also comes with these handy handles so you can carry it about in multiple fashions.
Even though we may only be three weeks into January, I think this may be my favourite buy of 2015. A serious must buy. Practical, durable and oozing with style you wouldn't be disappointed!
