I've owned this rucksack for about 5 years now (mine is branded Quechua Escape 70 but it's the exact same bag) and feel compelled to write a review.
I have used and abused this - I have walked around 1,500 miles with this on my back with it absolutely BURSTING AT THE SEAMS, it's handled everything I've thrown at it and then some. Long distance hiking, festivals, big shops.... don't mess about, this is the one you want.
There are a ridiculous number of pockets/compartments on this (I think I counted 13) which at first seems a bit comical but is really useful when you are living out of a rucksack, it makes it quicker to find what you're after without having to excavate the whole thing.
The ONLY damage it has sustained in 5 years of abuse is a small tear in the webbing of one the side pockets, one or two minor tears on the back where it was LITERALLY RUN OVER BY A CAR and one of the zip pull cords came untied. That's the sum total of the damage. Bearing in mind that I have walked THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF GREAT BRITAIN and more with this thing full - abusing it at every opportunity - that's pretty incredible. Being able to have confidence in your equipment is invaluable when you are in the middle of nowhere with your life strapped to your back.
Even if it broke tomorrow (it won't, the build quality is INSANE even though it looks very ordinary) I would buy another one in a heartbeat.
About the only thing I can fault about is is that the tension straps on the breast, arms and shoulder come undone pretty quickly when the pack is heavy, you need to pull them tight every half a mile or so as you walk along but it's not that big a deal.
Even after walking 900 miles doing 20 miles a day with it full (weighing 15kg+ at a guess) my back was fine, I thought I might be doing my back irreversible damage, my legs hurt like hell but my back was fine!
Tip: Buy the add-on straps for the bottom that Decathlon sell and you can strap your roll-mat to the bottom.
Decathlon: PLEASE never stop making this rucksack!
