    1. How to fill my bag for optimal 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 can be placed under the flap; the tent goes under the bag if it doesn't fit inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. In the pockets, spread out the small equipment you use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc). If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
    2. How to adjust the height of my bag?
      Place the adjustment system at the height that you think is correct and adjust the backpack (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 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, the hip belt should be placed around the waist. Tighten the shoulder straps. Finally, adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
    4. 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 the balls into a graduated container which gives us the equivalent number of litres, with a few % tolerance. The weight empty is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
    5. Environmental measurements
      The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental data of its products. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
    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 is only valid with the product and sales receipt. If the product is under warranty, 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. weight and dimensions
      backpack measurements: 73 cm in height by 34 cm in width and 30 cm in depth. weight when empty of 1.9 kg (approximate)
    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.

    • Quechua forclaz 70 backpack

      05/06/2018
      Jorge (United Kingdom)
      Used for 1 week or less
      Nice looking backpack with easy access to the main compartment using zip, I have used it for a 7 day trip across the mountains in wales and I found a bit difficult to carry everything I needed so I had some modifications done before I left on the trip.
      Had to sew 2x clips for attaching water bladder, all straps from the backpack are short length and not enough anchor points to attach things outside.
      I had to order 10 metres of strap to do necessary mods.
      No rain cover.
      When the backpack is full I find it really difficult to use side pockets special when side straps are buckled water bottle will be almost impossible, if you using nalgene 750ml forget..
      Overall nice looking backpack... but could be improved.

      Used for 3 to 6 months
      This is actually a fantastic design and incredibly comfortable to wear and adjust. The three star comes purely because of the base of the rucksack. This needs strengthening. One use by a silver dofe’r And we have a snag tear. Now granted we don’t expect it to survive barbed wire treatment etc but the fact that one ripped so easily and another has stretched the stitching is disappointing. Will hold off buying any more til we see an improvement ... we need ours to last a little longer

      This is a nice bag for the price, light weight and enough space for all my gear. Someone said it digs in at the bottom of your back but I haven't had this maybe as i'm only 5ft 6.
    • Thought it would last longer

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Bought this bag for a three week trip around Asia. I love it and it has all the compartments you could wish for. Massive downside is that the metal support in the back plate pushes it's way out of the velcro meaning the bottom is not supported by the rod anymore. Result? A collapsed bottom that has been digging in the small of my back for the last week.
