    Product feature
    1. How to fill my bag for optimal comfort?
      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.
    2. How to adjust 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.
    3. 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.
    4. Environmental measurements
      Decathlon has 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
    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, with a margin of a few %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
    6. 10-year guarantee
      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 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.
    7. 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.
    8. 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.

    9. 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 voluntarily committed to visually displaying environmental information.

      I never received the bag. I brought this product and then when I was told it was being shipped I got an email saying it's out of stock and I had a limited amount of time to decide how to proceed. Brilliant customer care, well done Decathalon. If a product is not in stock then DO NOT SELL IT TO CUSTOMERS UNTIL IT IS IN STOCK.
    • Close to perfection

      Reason to buy: I picked this bag up as I was in need of a bag for a weekend away camping and also in the near future travelling around Asia.

      Function: I have just come back from camping and this bag was fantastic. Firstly the ability to use it like a suitcase was brilliant not only for packing gear, but also for finding something at the bottom of you bag without removing all your items. The hip pocket is great for holding those items you need close to hand. Lots of storage options from coats and lunch to walking poles and maps.

      Comfort: This is where I only give the bag 4 out of 5 stars. the bag can be adjusted in pretty much every way. the height from waist to shoulder, the chest and waist straps, the distance of the bag from your shoulders. My problem was I am 6'3" so the waist strap was more like belly button height. I also have a 46" chest meaning it rubbed slightly in front of the arm pits. Somewhat due to the thinness of the straps and the shape of the straps. This was my only down point of the bag.

      Overall: Great bag which with some customization I am looking forward to travelling around Asia with.
    • great bag!

      I bought this bag for a festival last summer, swayed by the colour and price, and didn't really intend to use it for much else. Then I went on a spur of the moment 3 month trip to Mexico and Central America after New Year.. I was going to buy another (more expensive therefore better right? Wrong!!) bag but then I thought, surely I can use the one I already have?? I'm so glad I did, it is the perfect size: big enough to fit loads in it (seriously don't go bigger than this, I reckon I didn't wear a third of what I took) but small enough not to be a complete pain to carry. It withstood getting thrown around on numerous bus/boat/plane journeys without getting a single mark or loose stitch on it so I'm really happy with the quality. It opens all the way down the front which is great for not having to tip everything up out of it when you're looking for something. I carried it around on my back all day while waiting for a flight and it totally comfortable! And the pinky/purple colour is super cute and totally fits with my aesthetic ;) So happy with it and of course the price is amazing... I can't wait to take it on my next adventure!
    • Suitcase Opening Rucksack

      This is a superb multi function bag, bought for summer holidays.

      It has the traditional drawstring opening at the top, but also has a u-shaped zip around section, so you can open the bag like a suitcase. Very easy to see where your belongings are, without emptying your entire bag. Cleverly designed, so that you can also just unzip a small section at the bottom of the u-shaped zip, so your belongings are not on display.

      In addition, the expandable side zip pockets have a huge capacity, as well as top pockets, and various mesh pockets around the bag.

      So far so good, comfortable to wear for short distances before and after boarding flights.

      Delighted, and other half is now looking at purchasing the larger khaki green men's equivalent bag.

      The only thing it's missing is the option to zip away the straps ready for a flight when checking bag into the hold, but for the price paid, I'd happily buy an airline cover bag to conceal the straps.
