Among the many back to school must-haves, a backpack is probably number one on the list of essential items. One with enough room for books, pencils, lunch, and other daily necessities can get expensive, but luckily one cult classic style is currently on sale just in time for the new school year.
Whether you’re heading back to the classroom yourself, are shopping for a little one, or just prefer a backpack over a daily handbag, the Fjällräven Kånken Water Resistant Backpack is a great choice that also happens to be 20 per cent off right now at Nordstrom.
Crafted to be both practical and beautiful, this Scandinavian-designed backpack was originally created for Swedish schoolchildren. Now beloved by VSCO girls and outdoor enthusiasts alike, it’s a durable and colourful choice that can hold up to everything a new school year could throw at it.
Made from water-resistant Vinylon F fabric, this bag has a simple silhouette that has room for all of your belongings. It features one main zippered compartment that’s large enough to hold up to a 13” laptop, and one smaller exterior pocket to keep things organized. Available in a rainbow of 20 different shades, you can find the perfect hue for nearly any style or personality.
Why shoppers love it
A fan favourite that boasts more than 500 customer reviews, this backpack is a popular pick that has been receiving top marks from shoppers - excuse the pun.
“This was a gift for my daughter, exactly what she wanted,” said one reviewer. “Just the right size, bought it for her as she is starting college soon, and she’s been eyeing this backpack for a while.”
“I’ve been using it for work, before COVID, and obviously will continue once I go back to the office. This bag packs a bunch!” added another. “It’s comfy and does the job. Couldn’t be happier!”
While it’s perfect for work or school, some shoppers have gotten even more creative with their Fjällräven Kånken backpacks.
“I bought this to use as a diaper bag and love it. It’s lightweight and surprisingly can fit so much. I carry a few baby diapers, baby wipes, water bottles, extra baby clothes, and a small first aid kit,” noted one reviewer.
In addition to the classic Kånken Water Resistant Backpack, Nordstrom also has a selection of other Fjällräven styles on sale right now. Shop them all at 20 per cent off now, and take a look at the other options below.
