    Product feature
    1. Backpack technical tests.
      Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, includingfabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips,etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness in UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over several years, to assess the strength of the assembly: The backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
    2. 10-year technical partnership guarantee
      The Strenfit component brand, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. The results enable Quechua and Strenfit to guarantee the tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date provide on the till receipt.
    3. 10-year guarantee, conditions
      The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is under guarantee, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.
    4. How is backpack volume measured?
      The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres, with a margin of a few %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
    5. Environmental measurements
      Oxylane, together with Quechua, has decided to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. This work follows an experiment that began in July 2011 with the French Ministry of Ecology. Scores ranging from A to E were awarded based on comparisons between Quechua's backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at
    6. How to adjust your backpack?
      FIRST, LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more, PLACE THE HIP BELT CORRECTLY (it should sit over the pelvis) and TIGHTEN IT. For smaller backpacks, the hip belt should be placed around the waist. TIGHTEN THE SHOULDER STRAPS. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.
    7. Adjusting your backpack height?
      Set the bag for the height you think will be correct and then adjust it (see. "Adjusting your backpack"). With the belt on your pelvis, put the straps around the front part of your shoulders and the load adjuster straps (which are sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45° (they should never be horizontal or vertical). When trying it on, if the back seems too short or too long, readjust and try again until you are satisfied.
    8. How to pack a backpack?
      Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. and the tent beneath the pack if there is no space inside. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
    9. A score for comparing products' environmental impact
      The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is voluntarily committed to visually displaying environmental information.

    • Superb Pack

      Maureen (United Kingdom)
      Used for 3 to 6 months
      An excellent pack for the price- I've taken it on about 8 or 9 trips at this point and it's holding up well. The U-Zip is such a lovely feature as you can access all parts of the pack without unpacking and repacking. Parts holding up well so far. My only complaints are that it didn't come with a cover, so the one I got doesn't fit 100% exactly and that the padding sometimes shifts under the straps, though that's fixed with a bit of adjusting. LOVE this pack and get so many compliments on it.
      Lightweight, U Zip
      Doesn't come with cover

      Madhav (India)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Additionally I will request the design team to explore the possibility to incorporate another pocket inside to accommodate a few small things which will help better while walking or hiking
      The lumber support system is very comfortable
      Should have a rain cover

      Tanmay (India)
      Used for 1 week or less
      I've always had trust in the brand.
      But with this one stitches stated coming out in a two day trek.
      Got a replacement, but that too was defective :(
      Surprised frankly.
      everything, sheer disappointment
    • Sturdy. Made for Rough Use.

      Himanshu (India)
      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      I bought this bag for my personal use as I frequently go on trips to mountains. I needed a bag that could hold all my luggage as well as camera equipment as I am a budding travel photographer. After researching in the market, I bought this bag and I am really satisfied with the product. The capacity and accessibility is quite good. I was able to fit clothes for five day trip and shoes and toiletries and camera and tripod. It still had some space remaining. What I specifically loved about Quechua bags is that you are able to fit every single strap according to your body. It provides great back support and shoulders feel light as all the weight is balanced on your hips.
      Large Capacity, accessibilty, good build quality
