Technical Information

Backpack technical tests.
We carry out laboratory tests to check components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips... For example, with fabrics: resistance to rubbing, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing...A test on the final product which speeds up the effects of impact on the backpack over the years, to check resistance of the assemblies: with ballasts, they are placed on a mannequin and the movements which accompany quick walking over thousands of cycles are reproduced.
10-year warranty
The warranty covers backpack defaults, with the exception of those resulting from standard wear and tear and abnormal usage conditions. This special 10-year warranty will only be applied upon presentation of the product and till receipt, and where the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge.

Usage tests
QUECHUA has completed tests simulating ageing of the backpack. These tests focused on the components, seams and the end product. The results enable Quechua and DECATHLON to guarantee these tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date on the till receipt.
Environmental measures
Quechua has decided to inform you on the environmental impact of their hiking backpack products across their entire lifecycle. This work resulted from an experiment completed in July 2011 alongside the French Ministry of Ecology. ABCDE scores were assigned based upon a comparison of Quechua bags only. Details of this project and calculation methods are available at www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale

Product test
Quechua is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in the Haute-Savoie region (France). Our design teams conceive and develop stylish, simple and technical products all year round. We field test them in collaboration with our technical partners and professionals in the mountains in the toughest conditions. We are indeed convinced that it is only by applying them in real situations such as those you will experience can allow us to continuously improve our products.

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.

Comfy but bladder not easy
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Bought for a long trail race where I had to carry compulsory gear. Is a great bag that’s really comfy but it was tricky to drink from the bladder. Could be it gets easier with practise.
Not shaped for easy access
Used for 7 to 12 months
The quality of this backpack is great and it come with a water bubble which I did not expect. The straps are very comfortable and breathable. The tube of the drinking bubble is easily fit through and fastened. The sternum strap has a whistle, the pockets on the waist strap are roomy and easy to access. You can fit quite a lot into the backpack: 4-5 cans (0.5l) of beer, thin clothes, water bubble and some snacks, perfect for a festival too. But because of the shape it's difficult to make use of all space and to access items.
Great backpack for communting / long runs / hiking
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I already have an earlier version of this backpack, and purchased this as a replacement. It is great for using on longer runs as it has a drinks bladder, or it is big enough to use for a run commute to work - comfortable , adjustable straps and buckles mean no chafing too.
Good product
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Good product
Trail backpack
Used for 1 week or less
Very comfortable . Plenty of space for chocolate
Another winner
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Perfect small pack for shorter hikes and for running. Can’t really find any negatives.
Great little bag with a size issue
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
The size I'm referring to is mine. I've a 36" waist and have a good frame. I am not fat or obese as I'm 6"4 so found the shoulder straps and waist straps a problem when a jacket was on. I will probably only use this in summer when I can leave any jackets at home!
Hiking backback
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Like this back pack a lot, I use it to run and it's very light with just enough pockets to put keys/phone energy gels or small snacks
Helium 10 L Fast hiking backpack Purple
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I ordered the bag online and got it delivered to Decathlon Poole.
When I went to collect it, I decided to change the colour to black.
The shop assistant organise the return of the purple backpack, took the payment for the black bag and the refund done online was transfered within 48hours.

Great and useful bag. A slightly larger at the top could be a plus but except that it's a convenient backpack, the front pocket is big and helpful.
Hiking backpack
Used for 3 to 6 months
This is great and lightweight. I needed it for the long bike rides and it's the ideal job for stuff I have to carry and for the water
