Product feature
  1. How to pack my bag for optimal comfort?
    Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavier gear (tent, stove, food) closest to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet can be placed under the flap; the tent goes under the backpack if it doesn't fit inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. In the pockets, distribute the smaller items that you use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc.). Hydration packs should be placed in their special compartment along the back.
  2. How to adjust the height of your backpack?
    Place the adjustment system at the height you think is correct, then adjust the backpack (see. "How to adjust your backpack"). With the belt on the pelvis, put the straps around the front part of your shoulders and the load adjuster straps (sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45° (they should never be horizontal or vertical). If during fitting, the back seems too short or too long, readjust it and try again, until it feels absolutely right.
  3. How to adjust your backpack?
    First, loosen all the 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, position the belt around your waist. Tighten the shoulder straps. Finally, adjust the load adjuster straps to suit you.
  4. Environmental measurements
    Decathlon is committed to informing you about the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. This work is the result of an experiment that began in July 2011, initiated by the French Ministry of Ecology. Scores ranging from A to E have been awarded based on a comparison of Quechua backpacks only. Details about 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 to get the equivalent volume in litres. The measurement is accurate to within a few percentage points. The net weight is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
  6. 10-yr warranty
    The warranty covers any backpack defects, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty is only valid with the product and the sales receipt. 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.
