Technical Informations

1
USE TEST
All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
2
Backpack technical tests.
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, including fabric, 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.

This guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal use.
The heavy stitching research and development department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. These tests were conducted on the components, the seams, and the finished product. As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.

10-year guarantee, conditions
The guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal 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, with a margin of a few %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.

Environmental measurements
Oxylane, together with Quechua, 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

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.

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.

Perfect for older children
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Excellent quality and value for money. I bought it for my daughter (10) you don't want anything bigger.
It is also excellent as a bigger rucksack (used by me), say for a picnic with the family
Great
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Got it for my 7yo daughter who does a lot of camping with beavers
She was very impressed with all the pockets and space, she managed to get all her kit in, including sleeping bag and wellies
Looks a bit big on her - but it’s recommended for older kids - so no issues with that, seems quite decent quality
I (5’2”) tried it on and felt it very comfortable
