    Product feature
    1. Backpack technical tests.
      Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, including fabric, 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. This guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal use.
      The Strenfit component brand, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. These tests were conducted on the components, the seams, and the finished product. 10-year guarantee, conditions
    3. 10-year guarantee, conditions
      The guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal 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. 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.
    6. 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.
    7. 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.
    8. 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 committed to visually displaying environmental information.

    • Shoulder strips were torn in my second trek.

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Strips at the shoulders lost stiches and I ended up loosing balance during my trek. Went to nearest store and to my surprise i heard that shoulder strip is not considered for guarentee. And no service is available at decatlon to stich it back. I have to go to local shops to get it stiched. I purchased this product with lots of hope and love. This incident made me to loose trust on decatlon products.
      Response of the brand
      Hi Sandeep,Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. I am sorry to hear that you had faced issue while your trek. All Quechua backpacks are tested infield by users before suggesting it to our customers(ref:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yEgpNx8L5o) The main stitches of the backpack can take only up to 30kg, the fabric can take 40kg, and zip can be used 10,000 times.The backpack warranty covers only manufacturing faults and defects. Manhandling, like lifting the product with a single strap normally leads to this kind of issue. 

      If the product is used in the right way as recommended, kindly send some pictures of the product to varun.nair@decathlon.com, so that I can look into it and help you with this.

      Sorry again for the inconvenience caused.Awaiting for your response,Varun Nair E-Sport Manager DECATHLON
    • Good quality but didnt work for my size

      The backpack is over all very good. But the adjustment of the load lifters is very limited. I adjusted my pack for the full small size of the shoulder straps. but the range of the Load lifting straps came to the end not pulling the bag to the front of the body, There by putting more load on the shoulder straps. other than that a very good product
      Good quality, easy to operate top and front zip.
      Load lifting straps didnt do their job much
    • Perfect backpack for your track

    • ★ Excellent Backpack for Several Days Trekking. ★

      The near perfect backpack for 8-9 days trekking. The most lovable feature of this bag is that you can open from top as well as from front side, a rare feature I never found in any other bags. Marerials look very durable. Zips, shoulder pads are okay. The only two things that I didn't like are stitching thread ends are not concealed, which could've been placed in between two layers & the second one is that it is not waterproof. So rain cover is a must buy. I wouldn't have minded had it been waterproof at reasonable higher price for this. I recommend this bag for trekking.
      I am a bonafide buyer of this bag. I am yet to use it in my next month's trekking. Please, refer to other reviews before buying as my review is based on look only. I'll edit my review, if needed, after I use it first time for 8 days Himalayan Trekking.
