Technical Informations

1
Laboratory testing
We conduct laboratory tests to validate all the components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam padding and zips. For example, for a fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing. 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 loaded with weights and placed on a dummy which then reproduces thousands of fast walking movements.

10-year warranty, technical partnership
The Strenfit component brand, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. The results of these tests are used by Quechua and Strenfit to guarantee the bags for 10 years from the purchase date shown on the receipt.
3
10-year warranty, conditions
The warranty covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. The product and sales receipt will be required for a claim under this special 10-year warranty to be valid. If the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. This sales warranty does not affect any statutory rights applicable in the country of purchase.

How is volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardized 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.

How to adjust your backpack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more, place the hip belt correctly (it should sit on the hip bone) and tighten it. For smaller backpacks, the belt should be placed around the waist. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.

How to pack backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should be placed 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 (sunscreen, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. The hydration pack (water bladder) should be placed in its special compartment along the back.

Environmental measures
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type with each other (T-shirts, trousers and backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

Product test
All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who are representative of the target market under the same conditions as those you will encounter in use. Moreover, our "Mission Tests", bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and validate the products.

Stockage tips
Store the backpack in a dry place.

Maintenance tips
To maintain the materials' properties (especially waterproofing), 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 restore the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproof spray.

great bag for cycling to work
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
great bag for cycling to work, so comfy and neat stays perfectly on your back. Great out for day out with the children (providing I am not carrying a days worth of food!) too. If it was perfect it would have a key clip but its pretty close!
