    Details
    Product feature
    1. Waterproofing
      Built-in rain cover.
    2. Backpack technical tests
      We conduct laboratory tests to validate all the components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam padding and zips. For example, for a fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment it will experience 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.
    3. 10-year warranty, technical partnership
      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.
    4. 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 or exchanged for free. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.
    5. 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.
    6. 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.
    7. How to pack a 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/or 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.
    8. Environmental measures
      Decathlon together with Quechua, has decided to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. This work resulted from an experiment completed in July 2011 alongside the French Ministry of Ecology. ABIDE scores were assigned based upon a comparison of Quechua bags only. Details of this project and calculation methods are available at www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale

      Used for 1 week or less
      被產品的顏色吸引著,於是選了這背包進行今次的旅程。
      產品很全面,有不同的位置放置行山用品,例如行山杖,水袋。。。縮減了等候的時間。而且有很多支撐帶,滿足不同身高的行山人仕。但唯一的缺點就重量問題,如果可以再輕一點點,就能十全十美

      實地體驗,去黃牛石城,天氣不似預期,沒有猛烈的太陽,但溫度仍是偏高,體貼的設計,air cooling system,上山時不會汗流浹背。有水袋位,可放2L水,適合1 day hiking。兩側腰帶有袋,適合放手機、卡和零錢,更可放些小食糖果,方便。背囊冚有袋,可將物品分門別類擺放,容易提取。

      Used for 2 to 8 weeks
      Unfortunately this bag was bigger ( well taller) than I had expected so was returned for this reason only as otherwise perfect in style and composition
      I must congratulate decathlon on their returns process - the money was back in my account in less than 24 hours
