Fjällräven’s newly launched Kajka Backpack received “Product of the Year 2009” from the test team at Sweden’s leading outdoor magazine Utemagasinet. 

Kajka is Fjällräven’s durable trekking backpack with plenty of excellent features that come to use when out in the wilderness. The carrying system is designed for heavy loads and the user friendly “Perfect Fit Adjustment System” can easily be adjusted to fit different body types. At the bottom there is a wet/dry compartment and the top lid can be removed and used as a chest or hip pack.
