Product feature
  1. How to pack a backpack?
    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. Adjusting your backpack height?
    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 straps, 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 BOOSTERS to your liking.
  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, conditions
    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. 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.
  8. 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 committed to visually displaying environmental information.

    Used for 2 to 8 weeks
    This product is fine for what I paid for it. It’s no way as robust as a high end bergan but for 40 quid it does the job.
    A canoe liner will be required in case of a down pour as this is definitely not going to keep your kit dry.
    Another worry is the outer zip which seems flimsy and could burst open with a heavy load
  • Great rucksack

    Lots of pockets large and smaller ones.
    Interior can be separated into 2 compartments with draw strings.
    Differing height adjustments on shoulder straps for comfort.
    Nice choice of colours

    Great value pack. Easily adjusted to sit properly against the back. Main compartment's front access makes getting at gear easy without packing/unpacking. Plenty of straps and webbing.

    Agree with previous comments about the side pockets not really extending out for additional space, and I would have liked to have seen a built in rain cover but that's a matter of personal opinion. All in all a fantastically priced multi day pack.
  • Great backpack

    Ravit. (United Kingdom)
    Used for 3 to 6 months
    Bought it in order to take a band-saw bc f its cost and I thought "well.. wcs.. it will do its job"
    Must admit, I was surprised. Carried 18 kg in it without even notice. After the flight I was more surprised to see how the fabric stayed, not even a little mark of the use. Since then trekked few times, one in the Israel National Trail - more than 900 km, almost 2 months of trekking - a great job!
  • Good size, nice colour, light too
