    Product feature
    1. Laboratory test
      Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, includingfabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips,etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to rubbing, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing...A test on the final product, which speeds up the effects of impact on the backpack over the years, to check resistance of the assemblies: the backpack is weighted then placed on a dummy which then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
    2. 10-year technical partnership guarantee
      The heavy stitching research and development department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
    3. 10-year guarantee, conditions
      The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired free of charge or exchanged. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.
    4. How is 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.
    5. How to adjust your backpack?
      Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should be placed under the flap and the tent beneath the pack if there is no space inside. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
    6. Environmental measurements
      The environmental impact of each product is calculated for the product's entire life cycle, using different indicators. A general ABCDE mark is attributed to help you identify the best environmental performance by comparing products to each other (t-shirts, rucksacks, etc). Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of the environmentally-friendly labelling approach. For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

      I bought this for cycling. My previous rucksack was waterproof but heavy so was looking for something a little lighter. This is a good product particularly for the price. A decent capacity - will hold a loaf of bread plus tools and a waterproof if needed. Materials used seem good but isn't waterproof although it wasn't advertised as such either, but seems fine for showers. The formed semi-rigid back panel is good for walking but when cycling tends to press a bit on the lower back. Not uncomfortable though. The straps seem a little long and the absence of secondary fastenings for taking up slack means the spare flaps about in the wind. There are some elastic loops which I assume are for this but they don't really work.
      All in all a good value rucksack, nice styling and light weight. Recommended.
      Styling, weight, construction
      Would be better waterproof.

      Recently bought a Forclaz 20 air backpack in pink and grey. The item was for my daughter for school. I was given instructions of what she wanted and was able to find this at decathlon with ease and at a very reasonable price.. it is perfectly sized with plenty of storage and is a slow comfortable to wear when loaded.
