Simple, robust and comfortable everyday backpack in timeless Fjällräven style. The model was inspired by one of Fjällräven’s many loyal users who redesigned his worn out Greenland jacket into a bag he could use on his kick-sled! The jacket's characteristics are seen in the two front pockets with bellows and smart folding constructions that keep contents in place when you have buttoned the flaps.
Made from durable G-1000 HeavyDuty that protects contents and takes on an attractive sheen with age. The main compartment is top loaded and has a drawstring. The top flap is closed using a leather strap and metal buckle at the front. Inside the main compartment is a pocket for valuables and a compartment with a padded base for a laptop computer (up to 15 inches).
The back panel is padded and a wide, strong textile strap makes both handles and shoulder straps, the latter of which are adjustable for a good fit. The backpack can be impregnated with Greenland Wax for extra protection against dirt and moisture, something that also further enhances durability.

CARE & REPAIR
How to wax G-1000
Made from a mixture of beeswax and paraffin, Greenland Wax is a simple, nature-inspired solution to the challenges faced in the outdoors. Most of our G-1000 materials come pre-waxed, but it’s still a good idea to know how to re-apply and remove the wax to adapt your jacket to the conditions.
1. APPLY WAX
Take the block of Greenland Wax and rub it with long, smooth strokes against the fabric leaving behind a thin, even layer. You’ll want to apply some pressure when you do this, but not too much that your movements becomes jerky.
Using an iron (or a hairdryer) on low to moderate heat, melt the wax into the fabric. Again use long, even strokes. Greenland Wax melts at between 55°C and 60°C (131-140°F), so try to keep the iron temperature around this point – you don’t want the wax to get too runny. Don’t forget to wipe off the iron after use before ironing other garments.
This step isn’t always necessary, but if you want to make the fabric even more water resistant, repeat the process several times rather than applying a single, thick layer of wax. This is a good idea for exposed sections of the garment such as the hood and shoulders or the knees and rear.
WAXING ON THE GO
You can also use the flame of a camp stove to melt Greenland Wax. If you choose to wax on the go, hold the garment roughly 20-30cm above a steady flame. Don’t start too close! Begin further away and slowly move the garment closer to the flame until you see the wax starting to melt. Be careful not to burn the fabric or yourself. Stretch out the fabric over the flame and move it back and forth until the wax has melted.
What happens when waxing products with down or synthetic padding or Hydratic lining?
So you don’t affect the filling or sensitive synthetic lining used to stop down escaping through fabric, we recommend using a hairdryer to warm the wax. For down, you can also use a tumble dryer on a low heat.
