Abisko 65 W - Stone Grey
Coming Soon £250.00
A simple and lightweight trekking backpack from Fjällräven with a comfortable, adjustable carrying system adapted and designed for a smaller build.
The back panel allows for air circulation and the hipbelt has a design that gives great support. The length of the back is adjustable and the shoulder straps and hipbelt are designed for a smaller body shape. The hip belt has double adjustment straps at the front for easy handling plus two pockets for snacks and other quick access essentials. Its slim silhouette and spacious top-loaded main compartment with a large front opening make it a practical backpack that has room for everything you need for a few days trekking or even a longer trip away.
The main compartment has a snow lock at the top and the extra opening at the front makes it easier to pack and have an overview of contents. The top lid can be raised and has two spacious pockets. The zippered front pocket has space for reinforcement garments, ski skins and other things you need close at hand. There are also side pockets in stretchier fabric, big enough for a one-litre thermos. Compression straps at the sides stabilise the pack when it is not full, and they can also be repositioned, for example if you want to attach a sleeping mat to the front of the pack. The Abisko's pre-shaped, solid base gives stability when you place it on the ground. Whistle on chest strap and rain cover with reflective print.

PROVENANCE AND ETHICS
The story behind Fjällräven began in 1950 when Åke Nordin, a 14-year-old boy from Örnsköldsvik in Northern Sweden, was about to go for a trek in the mountains. Åke, who spent more time outdoors than indoors, did not like the backpacks that were available at that time. He decided to take matters into his own hands and built a wooden frame.
This backpack frame was the start of Åke's company, Fjällräven, in 1960. The name Fjällräven means Arctic Fox in Swedish and the name is in honour of the small predator which lives in the Swedish mountains in the harshest of climates.
