Technical Information

1
How to pack your 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 bag 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). 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 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 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 adjusters to suit.

Environmental measurements
Decathlon has decided to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. This work follows an experiment that began in July 2011 with the French Ministry of Ecology. The scores ranging from A to E have been awarded based on a comparison between Quechua backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale

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 measure the equivalent volume in litres within a few percentage points. The net weight is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.

10-year warranty
The warranty covers any defects/faults with the backpack, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty is only valid with the product itself and the 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.

Test
All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. In particular, our "Mission Tests" bring together the product manager with people who have no affiliation to QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.

Product test
We test the bag both in the lab and in the field to ensure its resistance to abrasion, wear, washing, water-resistance and colour-fastness under UV rays. Then, the weighted backpack is placed on a mannequin that simulates ageing by replicating thousands of fast walking movements, to check the durability of assemblies. The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc.) are also tested separately so that we can guarantee these bags for 10 years.

Stockage tips
Store your bag in a dry place.

Maintenance tips
To ensure the fabrics retain their initial properties (waterproofing in particular), you are advised not to machine wash, tumble dry, dry clean or bleach your backpack. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, you are advised to use warm soapy water and a brush if necessary. After a few years of use, you can refresh the water-repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.

Excellent product
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Very well built but hard to set up
Not comfortable for carrying weight over a long di
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought this for a trip to Iceland when it was fine for carrying about 10kg. But for my son's dofe trek where he was carrying around 15kg it was not good. After the practice he complained that it had developed an uncomfortable bulge in the small of his back. We couldn't rectify this with repacking it seemed to be the structure of the back material not the metal strengthening bar. He carried on using it for the expedition but I don't think its really up to this sort of walking. I would recommend for lighter weight trips or travel but not trekking with a tent.
Well worth the money
Used for 7 to 12 months
Been travelling for 9 months and the bag has been on planes trains boats you name it and it's still standing! The side pockets are convenient and the zip is so much better that you can zip it down and actually see your stuff! Highly recommend and love the colour!
Camping
Used for 1 week or less
Please can someone tell me where you put your foam roll mat ?? can it not be strapped on anywhere underneath ??
Amazing rucksack for great price
Used for More than 1 year
I bought this rucksack over a year ago to take travelling and it has barely been off my back since, great size, super comfy, amazing price, only problem is it lacks waterproof quality however a cheap rucksack cover coming in at about £5 did the trick. Would 100% recommend.
Good layout
Just bought this and happy with how it packs and is structured. The shoulder straps are well padded and the belt fits well. The zip seems a bit lightweight and I am worried it will break but guess I need to use it more and hope it holds up.
