Product feature
  1. Packing your bag for maximum comfort?
    Put your bedding at the bottom. Carry heavy gear (tent, stove, food) closest to 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.
  2. How do I adjust the height of my bag?
    Set the bag for the height you think will be correct and then adjust it (cf. "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 chosen to inform you about the environmental impact of trekking backpack products for the duration of their life cycle. 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. We then empty the balls into a graduated container which provides the equivalent volume in litres with a tolerance ranging a couple of %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
  6. 10-year guarantee
    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 granted if the product and sales receipt is shown. If the product is under warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial warranty does not affect any statutory rights 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. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
  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.

    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    Bought this for a trip to Iceland when it was fine for carrying about 10kg. But for my son's dofe trek where he was carrying around 15kg it was not good. After the practice he complained that it had developed an uncomfortable bulge in the small of his back. We couldn't rectify this with repacking it seemed to be the structure of the back material not the metal strengthening bar. He carried on using it for the expedition but I don't think its really up to this sort of walking. I would recommend for lighter weight trips or travel but not trekking with a tent.
  • Well worth the money

    Used for 7 to 12 months
    Been travelling for 9 months and the bag has been on planes trains boats you name it and it's still standing! The side pockets are convenient and the zip is so much better that you can zip it down and actually see your stuff! Highly recommend and love the colour!
