Long lasting
 Easy to take care of


Kånken wouldn’t be Kånken without Vinylon F. This synthetic fibre has been used to make the classic everyday backpack (and our Kajka trekking backpack, too) since the beginning, and its durability is clearly proven.  

Despite being a man-made fabric it functions like one created by nature. When Vinylon F fibres become damp they swell, making the weave tighter. So they resist rain showers without the need of a coating.

Care & Repair

Vinylon F can be cleaned with warm water, gentle soap and a sponge. But if you want more tips and information on how to look after Vinylon F and your backpack then check out our Kånken care guide.
