A: Fjällräven is a swedish term for arctic fox, besides that an outdoor gear creator company, our main sponsor.
More than 50 years serving nature
Ever since Fjällräven was founded just over 50 years ago, we have had one strong driving force: to develop products that make it easier for people to enjoy the countryside.
As far back as 1950 Åke Nordin developed a backpack frame that sowed the seed which would go on to become the Fjällräven company. And ever since its Örnsköldsvik beginnings in 1960, Fjällräven has continued to produce innovative, functional products which are appreciated by generations of outdoor enthusiasts across the world – and which have also received a number of distinguished awards over the years.
Fjällräven’s products are currently sold in around 20 countries. Over time, a few have become more or less classics – the Greenland Jacket, Vidda Trousers, Kånken Backpack and Expedition Down Jacket. We work continuously on developing materials, solutions and designs for new favourites – clothing, tents, sleeping bags and other outdoor equipment that can be used, loved and worn over many years of adventures out in the fresh air.
The story of this company begins in 1950 when the then 14-year-old Åke Nordin, the founder of Fjällräven, was going to a mountain tour from Örnsköldsvik (north Sweden) but was not satisfied with the backpacks that were then sold. He then decided to plan and develop equipment that is truly durable and user-friendly. In a couple of years, many innovations and improvements in the outdoor market have been developed thanks to him, such as. the idea of the first double-walled tent.
Åke Nordin also considered it important that the Swedish population of the 1960s cope with the depression that caused serious social problems at that time. By organizing the first Fjällräven Classic, masses started out in nature from the four walls, offering a really simple solution to this serious social crisis.
Nowadays, Fjällräven stands for environmentally-conscious trade, the production of durable hiking equipment, and the organization of hikes to help people to return to nature. Now, not only in Sweden but also in Hungary.
