    Product feature
    1. Backpack technical tests
      All components are approved in laboratory tests, including: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc. Example, for a fabric: 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 fabrication.The backpack is weighted then placed on a dummy which then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles
    2. 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.
    3. A ranking to compare the environmental impact of products
      The environmental impact of the product is calculated for the whole life cycle with different indicators. An overall ABCDE ranking has been created to make it easy for you to identify the products with the best environmental impact by comparing them with other similar products (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon has chosen to display this environmental information voluntarily. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

      The packable waterproof bag is FANTASTIC. It has plenty of space for items, folds into an unbelievably small package. It's a real MUST for every one as a standby.! !
      Brilliant product, I highly recommend it.! !
    • Only decorative daypack

      I found this daypack useless and a liability. I had taken it for a 13 day trip but its strap gave away on very first day. The stitches of shoulder strap were not firmly done where the lower end of strap meets a triangular projected flap. We did not have extra daypacks so this became a liability. We used a steel hospital pin for sometime. The bag has no extra pockets and the method of closing it is not to my liking. Lastly it is not at all waterproof. I feel that price is not commensurate with quality and what it offers. A serious trekker should go for a waterproof daypack.

      Bot it n the 1st thing i tried was to test it. Well sady in less than 5mins the water leacked out/in. So i guess its just water resistant for light rains or for small period of time. The bag looks cool.
