Technical Informations

1
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.
2
Backpack technical tests
The finished product is tested by simulating the treatment. 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 access the strength of the assembly. The backpack is weighted then placed on a dummy which then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.

A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information.

Walking equipment
Used for 1 week or less
These items were bought as I required a new hat and the backpack k will do as a small light weight shopping bag
Love the idea but...
Used for 1 week or less
The strap broke the third time I used it. I loved that it’s light, and folds up tiny....but the sewing is inferior!
but wished they just had a beefier fixture.
Great
Used for 3 to 6 months
Excellent piece of kit

Fire!
Used for More than 2 years
Warning! There was quite a bit of fire when I used this. You could have roasted marshmallows betweens my arse-cheeks. However I was stood in a fire at the time, don't know if this is relevant but ......
Great compact bag
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Brilliant ultra compact bag. It still gives you lots of space inside for your things to go in
Perfect!!!!
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Small and compact bagpack to take with you in your normal bag. I carried heavier load and nothing happened. Perfect instead foldable carrier bag
Where's the other model?
Used for More than 2 years
Deacthlon used to sell another model that was slightly larger, had different colours and was maybe slightly more expensive. I can't find it anywhere on the website, which is a shame if it means it has been dropped. We have three at home, red, black and blue all used differently. Black goes within my work rucksack as a lunchtime shopping bag, red is our 'bag of bags' containing all manner of plastic bags and bags for life and is used at every supermarket and other shopping trip. The blue one either goes in the bag of bags as an extra rucksack or is used for beach and town mooching. Please Decathlon reintroduce the other bag and keep both in the range!
Keep one with you at all times!
Used for More than 2 years
These are so useful to have in a bigger rucksack, in your car, in your pocket etc.
I dropped a star because it doesn't get back into itself quite as the next size/price up one, but that's quite harsh.
Of course, this isn't a rucksack for hill walking or any extensive use - not with those unpadded straps plus you'll sweat into the back but really? This is a super handy, incredibly cheap bag for when you didn't know you needed extra storage. Whether you are supposed to or not you can wash these and since the introduction (quite rightly) of a charge for plastic bags in the UK it is always advisable to have bags with you that take up virtually no space but can unfold into useful storage. They seem well made, zips, material etc. and I cannot recommend them enough. The dark green looks excellent and may tempt me in the future even though as a family we have six packable rucksack as it is (five of which are Quechua).
