Technical Informations

1
How to pack my 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 backpack 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.). Hydration packs should be placed in their special compartment 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 the 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 adjuster straps to suit you.

Environmental measurements
Decathlon is committed to informing you about the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. This work is the result of an experiment that began in July 2011, initiated by the French Ministry of Ecology. Scores ranging from A to E have been awarded based on a comparison of Quechua backpacks only. Details about 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. We then empty the balls into a graduated container to get the equivalent volume in litres. The measurement is accurate to within a few percentage points. The net weight is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.

10-yr warranty
The warranty covers any backpack defects, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty is only valid with the product and the sales receipt. If the product is under warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial warranty does not affect any statutory rights 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.

Test Product
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.

Great bag
Used for 7 to 12 months
Been using this for almost a year to camping and holiday trips. If i fold your clothes properly I could fit 5d4n worth of clothings just 1/3 of the bag. The remaining 2/3 of space I would fit in my sleeping bag, cooking utensils, gas canisters, torch and lamps etc. Not many loops on the outside to hang other stuff tho.
Perfect for anything
Used for 3 to 6 months
Used this bag to go camping with, was perfect to hold all my gear and still had space! Love the fact you can adjust the back to fit you, as I am short haha.
Will be using this for when I go to New Zealand, so far can fit everything I am taking with.
Value for money
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Good product. Nice and classy. But I don't understand the design concept, why there is a gap on one side of the bag..but anyways that doesn't affect the functionality.
