    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 then reproduces the movement of fast walking through 1000 of cycles.
    2. 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. We then empty the balls into a graduated container which provides the equivalent volume in litres with a tolerance ranging a couple of %.
    3. A note to compare the environmental impact of the products
      The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle and with different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is allocated 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. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

    • Waterproof Ultra Compact 20 litres Extra Backpack

      This rucksack squashes down in to a tiny integral stuff bag and has very good capacity and strength given the lightness of materials and price. It's actually the perfect shape to keep a pair of diving fins in if touring sandy places. No external pocket means it's not for repeated super quick access as you must unwind the waterproof closure but that's no great hardship. Surprisingly strong and roomy. Waterproofness didn't really get tested on my 2 weeks beach hopping and exploring trip.

      I bought this rucksack for its compact size which is genuinely pocketable and so can be taken anywhere. The material is thin and lightweight but appears quite tough. To test its claim to be waterproof I filled the sack with crumpled paper and rolled and clipped the top as recommended, I then gave it a good dousing from a hosepipe. I was surprised to see the water just roll of and after a good shake opened it up to discover the contents to be dry though care should be taken when unrolling the top as water can gather here. So yes it is waterproof provided the roll top is fastened correctly but due to its light weight I doubt whether it would remain so if submerged though I have not tested this. Overall I am very impressed with this sack which is comfortable to wear due to the close spacing of the shoulder straps (unlike some rival products which are also much more expensive) I can't comment on durability as I have not had the sack long but as an occasional sack I feel sure that it will meet all expectations. For the price this offers excellent value. Well done Quechua.
      Compact, waterproof, comfortable.
      Would benefit with an external drinks pocket
