Åke Nordin was born in 1936 on the Swedish high coast in Örnsköldsvik, where gentle hills alternate with deep forests and sheltered bays. Young and curious, he discovered the world of Sweden every day anew.Life, a single adventurefor him. His adventure. During his tours through nature he developed the idea that should make hisoutdoor tours easier. So he asked himself how to design a backpack that could hold enough equipment but was also comfortable to carry. He sat down in the basement, at his mother's sewing machine and used his father's tools.The first prototype: a backpack with wooden frame.

Instead of wood, Nordin now used an aluminium frame, but backpacks weren't the end of the line. Åke Nordin didn't stop there. He searched for solutions where nature had confronted him with problems.Tents, sleeping bags, jackets, trousers: Fjällräven products should withstand any weather.
