Abrasion resistant component (bottom and back)
WATER BLADDER (NOT PROVIDED)
Bag design can accommodate a water bladder (not provided). An accessory that lets kids hydrate regularly throughout their hike.
We conduct laboratory tests to validate the components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam padding, zips, etc. For a fabric:resistance to abrasion & tearing, colour-fastness in UV light, resistance to washing, waterproofing, etc. A test is then conducted on the product replicating the accelerated demands on the backpack over a number of years to check the strength of the assembly: the backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking over thousands of cycles.
How to adjust your backpack?
1 - Adjust the back height adjuster to your kids’ height in cm (remove the rip-tab and then pass it through the loops of the desired colours).
2 - Loosen all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps).
3 - Put the backpack on.
4 - Tighten the shoulder straps.
5 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed
The warranty covers the defects of the backpack, excluding those resulting from normal wear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty will only be granted upon presentation of the receipt and the product, if the product is covered by warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged, free of charge. This sales warranty does not affect the statutory rights applicable in your country and/or state.
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 these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres, with a tolerance of a few %.
The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
