Backpack technical testsBackpack components are approved in laboratory tests, includingfabric, 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 assess 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
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.

waterproof but not durable22/07/2016the bag tore from multipe placesResponse of the brandHello Anket Mohanty,
Thank you for your feedback on the Arpenaz 20 Ultra Compact bag.
Just to reiterate on the usage of the backpack, it is designed mainly to carry light things around the camp site or as a small additional backpack. They are not ideal to carry cameras as the lens might poke the seams and could rip them apart when under pressure. I would suggest you also to refer to the camera bag by Quechua if you are looking for one.
If you believe the above stated is not the case, All Decathlon products come with a minimum warranty of 2 years on manufacturing faults and defects and you are entitled for an exchange if the product is faulty.

I am at your disposal in case of doubts.
