Fjallraven began in 1950 when a 14 year old Swedish boy, Ake Nordin, revolutionised outdoor gear by creating an external frame backpack using aluminium. This new backpack design allowed Nordin to carry a heavier load and increased the comfort compared to other packs of the era.
This foundation and his innovative approach carried over when Nordin founded Fjallraven in his basement in 1960. The company has grown exponentially since then thanks to its quality outdoor clothing and equipment that is beloved throughout the Nordic countries and across the globe. A true winter explorer knows the value of Fjallraven gear.
Fjallraven is focused on key factors that have elevated the brand to an esteemed position in outdoor clothing. With products that focus on: timelessness, durability, reliability, versatility and functionality, Fjallraven clothing offers everything an explorer would ever want from their gear.
Fjallraven tents and equipment are also designed with these tenets in mind – the first condensation free tent was designed in 1960 by Fjallraven and nowadays they are leading the charge in the ultralight craze with their Abisko series. If you’re looking for a durable tent that will never let you down, pick up a Fjallraven tent and marvel at the quality.
