    Product feature
    1. Field test
      All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our "Missions Tests" put the product manager in contact with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.
    2. Laboratory tests
      We carry out laboratory tests to check components: fabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips, etc. Fabrics are tested for: resistance to rubbing, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing...A test on the final product, which speeds up the effects of impact on the backpack over the years, to check resistance of the assemblies: the backpack is weighted then placed on a dummy which then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
    3. 10-year technical partnership guarantee
      The heavy stitching research and development department, 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. As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
    4. 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 covered by the warranted, 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.
    5. 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.
    6. How to adjust your backpack?
      1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - 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 volumes, place the belt around the waist. 4 – tighten the shoulder straps. 5 – Finally, adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
    7. How to pack a backpack?
      Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should be placed under the flap 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. Environmental measurements
      The environmental impact of the product is calculated over the product's complete lifespan according to various indicators. A general mark ABCDE is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (t-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc). Decathlon's environmental display approach is voluntary. For more information, visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

    • Doesn't get much better for the price

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Got this at around 15 quid. Does its job as a no frills, carry on, weekend trip backpack.

      Material is a bit thin but the bag holds together well and doesn't feel cheap.

      Highly recommended.
      Does its job
      Lack of front access
    • A super backpack

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      My child had to get a new bigger bag for school books. This fitted the bill - roomy enough to take folders and still at a bargain price.
      The straps are padded so it makes it easier to carry.
      Good size, comfortable to carry
      Nothing, it was as expected
