Technical Information

Backpack technical tests.
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, includingfabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips,etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness in UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over several years, to assess the strength of the assembly: The backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
10-year technical partnership guarantee
The Strenfit component brand, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. The results enable Quechua and Strenfit to guarantee the tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date provide on the till receipt.
10-year guarantee, conditions
The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is under guarantee, 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.
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 these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres.
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.
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.

Maintenance tips
To ensure materials retain their properties (especially waterproofing), we recommend you do not machine wash, tumble dry, dry clean, or bleach your backpack. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush if needed. After a few years of use, you should renew the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.

very useful
Does what's required of it
Quechua Bag
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
When nothing in it very light, small and compact. Then you start to put your stuff in it...I thought there was a hole in the bottom of it at one point! Seems to be an endless amount of space within this backpack. Totally recommend.
Annoying rucksack
Used for 7 to 12 months
I bought this rucksack to use commuting to work. It is comfy to wear and the front organiser pocket is good as it isn't sideways on so I can open the zip and my bits and bobs don't all fall out and are still where i put them.
BUT. It is a pain to fill as it constantly falls over so I have to hold it upright to put stuff in and the sloping shape of the top means my rucksack cover regularly slumps down the bag in the rain and anything at the top of the bag gets damp. I've used the rucksack cover with other rucksacks and not had this problem.
Front organiser pocket and comfy
Pings off cover and not stable when filling

good value
comfortable to wear
Very decent backpack in dry weather
Used for 3 to 6 months
For the money, this is a very good backpack. Very comfortable to wear, you can fit all sorts of stuff into it (your rainjacket, your 1 litre flask etc ) and it has lots of organiser pockets for your smaller stuff. Great!
However it is not waterproof and it does not come with a waterproof cover. You will have to buy one these separately - cost about £12 for a decent one. Don't put any of your perishables in the outside pockets, they will be ruined after only an hour in the rain.
Also, the waist straps are very thin, and give little waist support.
But for the money its a deal - in dry weather
Plenty of space, plenty of pockets
Not waterproof

Vhodný nejen na každodenní nošení do práce či do školy, ale také na turistiku. Batoh má prostornou především horní část, v pohodě se vleze notebook,1,5l láhev s pitím a ještě i oběd a nějaká ta dobrá kniha ;) Značka Quechua se mi zatím vždy osvědčila. Doporučuji.
Barevné provedení, hodně kapes, pohodlný
Gute Organisation im Rucksack
Used for More than 2 years
Ich habe den Rucksack 1,5 Jahr täglich benutz und dieser ist immer noch in einem Top Zustand. Auch beim Wandern für Tagestouren passt alles wunderbar rein. Das vordere Fach ist super Sortiert um klein Kram unter zubringen. Ebenfalls hat der Rucksack eine Möglichkeit Trekkingstöcke zu befestigen. Ich selber habe diese nie genutzt. Auf der Front ist ebenfalls ein Gumminetz befestig woran man gut Jacken oder Westen befestigen kann. Lediglich der Beckengurt hat mich etwas gestört da diese bei größeren Person eher auf dem Bauch liegt und dort etwas stört ( Ich bin 1,95m groß). Wiederum den Brust gut finde ich sehr Praktisch und würde mir hier noch einen Notfallpfeife im Clipsytem wünschen. Genauso wie einen oder 2 Plastik ringen am vorderen Riemen und dort etwas mit dem Karabiner zu befestigen. Leider ist nur ein Gummilasche vorhanden. Ebenfalls kann man im diesem Rucksack eine Trinkblase verstauen. Im oberen Teil des Rucksacks ist dafür ein Loch. Ebenfalls würde ich mir ein bessere Lösung für die Rückenbelüftung wünschen da man hier ins schwitzen kommt an heißen Tagen.
Sehr robuster rucksack
Used for 7 to 12 months
Mein Sohn nutzt ihn als Schulrucksack, läßt sich gut verstellen und kann in der Waschmaschine gewaschen werden. Kann auch imprägniert werden
