Side zip opening to access the main bag compartment.
Built-in rain cover.
We complete laboratory tests to certify components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips... for example, for a fabric: resistance to wear tearing washing water-resistance and colour-fastness under UV rays. Then a test on the finished product that 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 then reproduces the movement of fast walking over thousands of cycles.

How is bag volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard 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 over the pelvis) 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 a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear near to the back. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece close to hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. The water bladder will be placed in the compartment provided.
Décathlon and Quechua have chosen to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpack products over the entire life cycle. This work follows on from an experiment conducted in 2011 alongside the French Department of Ecology. ABCDE are provided to compare the Quechua backpacks only.
