Technical Information

1
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. The groundsheet may be place 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 (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 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.

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. 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. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres, with a margin of a few %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.

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.

Stockage tips
Store your bag in a dry place.

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.

Reviews

Nice looking and reliable
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
The item looks great and has proven to be reliable.
No flaws or failures.
A real eyecatcher.
You get what you pay for
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
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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
Forclaz60
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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
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
Used for 1 week or less
Just could do with a few more pockets / sections for smaller items on outside perhaps.
Great Value
Used for 1 week or less
Quality product, thoughtfully designed
Disappointed
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought this product and was pleased to have to use it more seriously on a two-day walk. When it was filling the backpack the black part on top tore completely and got a hole. I know it is not a top backpack, but I have a backpack of another brand that cost the same and I have used it many times and it is already 10 years old and never ripped. So I am very disappointed with this product.

Good value for money
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Can fit a lot staff. Plenty of pockets. Can be opened in multiple ways. Missing straps to hang things from the bottom. Only drawback, its not waterproof
Great lovely light rucksack
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I love how light and comfortable it is to use, easy to adjust back attachment, and it was the only one I could find that you could completely open the front to access anything anywhere in the bag without having to dig through the bag. However I would have liked to see more pockets and a built in rain cover like on other brands. Also the material it's made from could be a bit thicker/robust.
you can open the whole front of the rucksack
Needs more pockets and a bit flimsy material
