    Product feature
    1. LaboratoryTesting
      Components are approved in laboratory tests, including: fabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips, etc. Fabrics are tested for: 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 through thousands of cycles.
    2. 10-year technical partnership warranty
      The warranty covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty will only be applied upon presentation of the product and till receipt, and where the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country/states of purchase.
    3. 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.
    4. Environmental measurements
      The environmental impact of each product is calculated for the product's entire life cycle, using different indicators. A general ABCDE rating is attributed to help you identify the product with the best environmental performance by comparing similar types of product to each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
    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. 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 your waterproof jacket and/or fleece close to hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. Put the water bladder in the compartment that is usually provided

    8. Environmental measurements
      Oxylane and Quechua have 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 http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale

      Excellent quality and value for money. I bought it for my daughter (10) you don't want anything bigger.
      It is also excellent as a bigger rucksack (used by me), say for a picnic with the family

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Got it for my 7yo daughter who does a lot of camping with beavers
      She was very impressed with all the pockets and space, she managed to get all her kit in, including sleeping bag and wellies
      Looks a bit big on her - but it’s recommended for older kids - so no issues with that, seems quite decent quality
      I (5’2”) tried it on and felt it very comfortable
    • Great pack for smaller adults

      I am not a teenager but I am a petite lady of just over 5ft. This pack was perfect for me. Very easy to wear, supportive straps and a great colour. It seems well made and of good quality. I would recommend this pack for teenagers and small adults. I suspect that my kids will borrow this when they go out with d of e expeditions.
