Special Limited-Edition Alert! Fjällräven's 50th Anniversary Kånken

Fjällräven, the iconic Swedish outdoor gear company—whose Kånken backpack has, in recent years, become just as coveted amongst the grown-up fashion set as it is among Swedish schoolchildren—celebrates its 50th anniversary this winter with two special-edition styles and sizes ($65-$80) of the iconic rucksack. Available in brown and black, the bag features branded leather labels—that say “Fjällräven Since 1960”—instead of the style’s traditional red Kånken tag.
