The Kånken has been a staple with Swedish schoolchildren for decades, and with it's recent entry into the American market, perhaps its headed for the same fate here. I love that the discreet laptop sleeve stays mostly hidden from view and gives the bag structure as well. The knapsack also comes with a foam seat pad, for when the Nordic (or perhaps Nebraskan) ground is wet or cold. I ported my laptop home last night and back again this morning. Easy as pie.
