In today’s day and age, technology has become a massive part of our lives and is used by almost everyone for educational, business and recreational purposes. The prevalence of people bringing their own portable device to work or school, whether it be a laptop, PC or tablet, has significantly increased over the years and thus means we as a business must keep up – and that is exactly what we have done.
At Fjällräven, we have adapted and improved existing backpacks as well as created new models that meet the demands of our technology-populated world by implementing features such as padded compartments big enough for a variety of different sized laptops – perfect for anyone who is commuting a personal device anywhere! Whether you are going back to school, uni, work or just need a durable backpack for your everyday adventures, here are our top picks that accommodate to all and are laptop friendly:
We think you cannot go wrong with one of our classic Kånken backpacks, however when our founder Åke Nordin designed it, there was no need for laptop space as they didn’t exist! Although the first laptop was invented in 1981, it wasn’t until the 1990s that they became popular and were starting to be used by more and more people – well after Åke’s clever invention. Therefore, as the years passed and its demand grew, Fjällräven created the Kånken Laptop which now comes in 3 different sizes and a multitude of colours to accommodate to laptops of either 13 inch, 15 inch or 17 inch.
It is simply the laptop version of our best-selling product – the Kånken backpack – and includes all the features of the classic Kånken plus the ability to store and protect a laptop. Made entirely from our durable Vinylon F fabric with padded shoulder straps for increased comfort and a large, padded laptop compartment, the Kånken Laptop is the perfect choice for uni, work or school as it is made to store and protect your device in addition to carrying all your other belongings – all while lasting a lifetime.
Moving away from our beloved Kånken family, we have a range of other daypacks that are just as perfect for any adventure and return to uni, school or work. Our Räven 20L is a durable everyday backpack made from our finest G-1000 HeavyDuty Eco fabric with its simple and functional design making it versatile enough to be used in a variety of ways whether it be back to school/uni, commuting, overnight stays or everyday outings. It also comes in 15 vibrant colours as well as a slightly bigger version – the Räven 28L.
With a total volume of 20 litres (hence the name), the Räven 20L has a spacious main compartment with a zippered opening and a padded sleeve for a laptop or computer up to 15 inches in size. Additionally, it has a small fleece-lined, zippered pocket to safely store sunglasses, a phone and other valuables, as well as numerous extra side and front pockets for easily accessed storage. With padded shoulder straps for extra comfort, the Räven 20L will be a perfect companion for adventure whether it be back to the classroom or into nature.
Our Skule 28 is another multi-purpose, durable choice for the ideal everyday backpack that can be used both in the classroom, on a light hike in the great outdoors or on the bus commute home from work. Although it is slightly larger than the average backpack, it allows for greater versatility and a wider use range such as light hikes and overnight trips as opposed to just everyday use.
Made of hardwearing, water-repellent Oxford fabric in recycled polyester, the Skule 28 has a zippered main compartment big enough to fit all your belongings plus a 15 inch padded laptop sleeve. Also featuring a detachable hip belt and chest strap for extra support and comfort, this backpack is sure to last you a lifetime no matter where you take it with you.
