Spring-Summer 2015 Collection Available Beginning in February 2015

(Boulder, CO) August 6, 2014— Heritage outdoor brand Fjällräven will expand its outdoor accessories offering with the launch of new technical packs and durable travel bags in Spring 2015. Since the launch of its first product, a wooden-framed backpack developed by founder Åke Nordin in 1960, Fjällräven has been synonymous with technical pack design. The brand pioneered the backpacking category developing a frame concept that evenly distributed weight across the back, allowing the wearer to carry more with ease and increasing ventilation between the back and the pack. The design caught the attention of the indigenous Sami people of Northern Sweden who spent weeks in the mountains, propelling Fjällräven to become one of the first brands to commercially produce and distribute framed packs.

The seasonal offering will debut a new series of technical backpacks, the Kaipak, as well as new silhouettes in the daypack and duffel categories. The new designs, like all Fjällräven packs, are constructed with a PFC-free polyamide. Ranging in price from $100.00 to $300.00, the Fjällräven Spring-Summer 2015 accessories collection will be available beginning in February 2015 at specialty outdoor stores, the brand’s flagship retail locations and online at www.fjallraven.us

NEW PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS

Kaipak, $150 - $300

The Kaipak is a new series of technical trekking packs that feature a simple silhouette and time tested performance features. The internal frame packs are constructed from G-1000® HeavyDuty Eco, a durable waxed fabrication blended from recycled polyester, organic cotton and PFC-free polyamide. Offered in three sizes (28 liter, 38 liter and 58 liter), the Kaipak series is best suited for treks that extend from one to three days. The 28 liter model has a detachable hip belt and fixed strap system, while the larger models have an integrated hip belt, fixed back lengths and ergonomically shaped shoulder straps. The 38 liter and 58 liter models are also compatible with hydration systems and have attachment points for ice axes and trekking poles. All packs are equipped with rain covers, compression straps at the sides and a zippered pocket located on the front of the pack. The 38 liter and 58 liter packs will also be offered with a carrying system specifically designed to adapt to female forms, the Kaipak 38 W and Kaipak 58 W.

Additional features include: pole attachments at the front of the bag and a safety whistle located on the chest strap. In addition to hiking and outdoor pursuits, the fast access and weatherproof pack is also a great option for commuter cycling.

Camper, $100.00 - $120.00
