Backpack technical tests.
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, including fabric, 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 reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.

10-year guarantee, conditions
The guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal 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. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.

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
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.
6
Adjusting 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.
7
How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. 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.

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.

★ Excellent Backpack for Several Days Trekking. ★
The near perfect backpack for 8-9 days trekking. The most lovable feature of this bag is that you can open from top as well as from front side, a rare feature I never found in any other bags. Marerials look very durable. Zips, shoulder pads are okay. The only two things that I didn't like are stitching thread ends are not concealed, which could've been placed in between two layers & the second one is that it is not waterproof. So rain cover is a must buy. I wouldn't have minded had it been waterproof at reasonable higher price for this. I recommend this bag for trekking.
I am a bonafide buyer of this bag. I am yet to use it in my next month's trekking. Please, refer to other reviews before buying as my review is based on look only. I'll edit my review, if needed, after I use it first time for 8 days Himalayan Trekking.
very good trek back

Very comfortable trekking back.
Very comfortable trekking back.
Good backpack overall
Used for 3 to 6 months
Used it on a couple of treks and travelling on trains. Been less than a year but there is already a tear near the straps. So that is slightly disappointing. Expected it to be more sturdy.
Multiple pockets make it easy to organise things
Built quality could have been better

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I love how light and comfortable it is to use, easy to adjust back attachment, and it was the only one I could find that you could completely open the front to access anything anywhere in the bag without having to dig through the bag. However I would have liked to see more pockets and a built in rain cover like on other brands. Also the material it's made from could be a bit thicker/robust.
you can open the whole front of the rucksack
Needs more pockets and a bit flimsy material
Very happy so far
I bought this for an 8 day trip to Jordan. I'm 5'3" and managed to set it up to fit me with an arctic sleeping bag strapped to the bottom for sleeping out in the desert. The slim design is great for public transport and the side and top access make getting to things and repacking very easy. The zips appear strong. All in all, it appears so far to be a well thought out bag at a very good price.
Ease of access, slim design, spacious pockets

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
An excellent sized bag for a week away with an nifty front or top access system that makes living straight out of the bag easy. I also found the slimline design handy for getting on and off the tube and squeezing down the aisles on trains.
The top and side pockets are very spacious and the pack is comfortable when on. The quality appears very good and the bag certainly looks and feels much more expensive than it is.
I wouldn't recommend the bag for trekking as I suspect the big front zips would not be very waterproof, although you could probably purchase a separate rain cover. Some of the more pricey models come with these so I'd probably suggest paying the extra.
The only issue really is that the back system is a bit of a pain to set up initially, but once done you don't have to mess around with it again, and for the price it would be churlish to complain.
Easy to access, plenty of pockets and comfortable
Harness adjustment not particularly slick
replacement
