I’ve been hooked on Sweden’s Fjällräven as a brand ever since I stumbled into their shop in SoHo just around the corner from my old apartment and walked out with one of my all-time favorite rain jackets, a waxed-canvas button-up jacket. Since then, I’ve drank the Kool-Aid and have been singing the praises of Fjällräven far and wide because their Swedish craftsmanship is unmatched.
Consider for a moment how extreme the weather in Sweden is across the span of a year. You’ve got Summer days with 24-hours of sunlight and Winter days with 0 hours of sunlight. Rain can be expected all throughout the year and snow is just another part of daily life for most of the calendar. You need rugged gear that will hold up to anything and everything, and that’s exactly what you get with Fjällräven‘s incredible line of gear.
The Fjällräven Ulvö-Rolltop-23L is a roll-top style backpack that enables you to expand or shrink the size of your backpack to fit the amount of gear/things you’re carrying around at any given time. It’s stylish enough to carry every day to school or the office, and it’s expandable and big enough to use as a travel backpack.
Over on Huckberry, it comes in two colors, Black and Red Gold. Personally, I’m partial to the Red Gold version that looks reminiscent of the ‘burnt orange’ from the University of Texas but the black is just as clean looking.
The notable features include the roll-top design to expand or contract the size of the back based on your needs, a top buckle that clasps in the excess room securely to keep all of your gear in place. There are interior pockets for easy organization and a chest harness that will keep the Fjällräven Ulvö-Rolltop-23L securely fashioned to your body if you want to use that. The sleeves and back are comfortably padded but also well extremely well ventilated so you won’t overheat.
There are dual side drop-in pockets for carrying a water bottle, thermos, sunscreen, or any other gear. And there are side cinch straps to harness in the loose gear that you might want to carry on the outside of the bag or you can use it for the overflow gear if you want to shrink down the size of the bag.
