How to adjust your backpack?
Position the bag at the correct height and adjust it. With the belt on your hips, put the straps around the front part of your shoulders. The load adjuster straps (which are sometimes also height-adjustable) must be at an angle of around 45°. If, during testing, the back seems too short or too long, re-adjust and try again until satisfied.

We complete laboratory tests to certify components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips... for example, for a fabric: resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour-fastness in UV light, resistance to washing, waterproofing, etc. A test is conducted on the finished product replicating the wear on the rucksack over a number of years to check the strength of the assembly: the rucksack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking over thousands of cycles.

How is bag volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard 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.
The Easyfit system
It is possible to adjust your backpack in a single intuitive step to fit your body shape while it is on your back: for maximum comfort.
How to adjust your Forclaz EasyFit backpack
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - Place the belt on the hips (it should go around the hip bones) and tighten it. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Pull the Easyfit straps and the strap block will go around your shoulders. 6 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
EasyFit effectiveness tests are carried out by our Research and Development teams.
User-friendly design: adjustment time is actually 2 to 3 times quicker with the Easyfit backpack and the number of corrections = 0 for the Easyfit bag. Furthermore, the EasyFit system does not affect the quality of the adjustments when compared with a standard adjustment system. EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable on a 4% Friedmann statistical test; users also noted better adjustments 6 times more often.
How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near 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.

Just packing for a 6 day backpacking trip starting tomorrow. It's the first time this backpack has been used. When adjusting the straps for the final fit, all tbe stitching failed on one side rendering the backpack useless! No chance of returning as bought online so fixed it myself. Will carry a sewing kit on the trip as I can't trust the stitching. Quality is p**s poor and I'm really annoyed.
