Technical Information

1
How to fill my bag for optimal comfort?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet can be placed under the flap, 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.
2
How to adjust your backpack height?
Set the bag for the height you think will be correct and then adjust it (see. "Adjusting your backpack"). With the belt on your pelvis, put the straps around the front part of your shoulders and the load adjuster straps (which are sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45° (they should never be horizontal or vertical). When trying it on, if the back seems too short or too long, readjust and try again until you are satisfied.
3
How to adjust your backpack?
First, loosen all straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). Put the backpack on. 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 hip belt should be placed around the waist. Tighten the shoulder straps. Finally, adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
4
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, with a margin of a few %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
5
Environmental measurements
The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is voluntarily committed to visually displaying environmental information.

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 under guarantee, it will be repaired or exchanged for free.

Store your bag in a dry place.

Maintenance tips
To ensure materials retain their properties (especially waterproofing), we recommend you do not machine wash, tumble dry, dry-clean, or bleach your backpack. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush if needed. After a few years of use, you should renew the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Jg
straps are not comfortable
Used for 1 week or less
Nice product but back straps are out of shape. From day one I feel the bag is moving towards one side. May be some defect in strap alignment. Rest its a nice product
zip openings and multiple pouches
bag adjustments
tough
Used for 7 to 12 months
The bottom tore in just few weeks. however, the backback is good. The capasity is more than sufficiant for a 3 to 4 day trek. The zip is a very good innovation where th eback pack can be opened vertically as well as horizontally.
back support is rigid
The bottom needs a thicker material.
Response of the brand
Hi Deepak,

Thanks for your review on the Forclaz 70 backpack. I am sorry that the bottom of the bag tore in few weeks.
I request you to take the backpack to your nearest Decathlon store and get it inspected by the store team and if the tearing has happened due to manufacturing defect, they would be more than happy to replace the backpack for you.
Please feel free to get back to me in case of any more questions.

Thanks,
Best Regards,

Ravindra Charan
