    Product feature
    1. Laboratory Testing
      We carry out laboratory tests to validate all component parts: fabric, buckles, straps, foam and zips. For example, for fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing. 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 over thousands of cycles.
    2. 10-year guarantee, technical partnership
      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.
    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 covered by the guarantee, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. This commercial warranty does not exclude applicable legal warranties depending on the country and/or State.
    4. How is 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.
    5. 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 backpacks, the belt should be placed around the waist. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - 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. 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 measures
      The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall rating of ABCDE is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other (t-shirts, trousers and backpacks). Decathlon is a voluntary participant in this environmental labelling initiative. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

      I bought this so I could do a walk and overnight camp on the Pennine Way while my Exped was in for repair. I managed to fit in my tent and all my kit for an overnight camp. Well impressed. It was lightweight , great colour. The pockets fitted in my water bottles and my tent poles. Really comfy and performed as well as the more expensive Exped. For the money this is such a good buy. The guarantee and warranty for 10 years how do they do it. I am so impressed with decathlon. The customer service was great and it arrived within 2 days. I am someone who will give negative feedback when warranted but this pack for £30 was great. Did 16 miles and it was so comfy lived it.

      I needed to change my very very old bag to go hiking in Wales and Lake District. Was looking for a comfortable, affordable, practical backpack. Was not disappointed at all with this one. Only downside is that with lot of weight in it the objects tends to go very low (the bottom of the bag is not rigid enough I would say), not very important but can get annoying when climbing rocks and high slopes.
      Comfort, color, price
    • Good quality rucksack

      Bought this as a day rucksack for a 2 week holiday to the lakes. Had plenty of room for my stuff plus everything the kids couldn't carry. Comfortable straps across the shoulders and reasonable cooling across the back.
      Lots of pockets/space
