‘The Abisko Friluft has all the reassuring bombproof solidity of Fjällräven’s traditional trekking and hiking packs but with the bonus of a new, ventilated back system.’
Outdoors Magic: Seriously solid feel, comfortable and supportive vented back system, pockets, massive zip-down panel access to main compartment, big front pocket.
Outdoors Tragic: A tad heavy, quite expensive.
Outdoors Grabbit? On paper Fjällräven’s packs look heavy and old fashioned, but they’ve always felt super solid and durable and carried really well in our experience. The new vented Friluft continues in the same vein. Not only is it cooler than the brand’s conventional packs, it’s really comfortable and supportive too. Add in lots of pocket choice and a radical, zip-down main compartment access panel and you end up with a deceptively capable, super solid pack that’ll handle day walks and light packing too. It’s not cheap and it’s not particularly light, but the quality and comfortable carry plus well thought-out features reflect that.
