Technical Information

1
How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Carry heavy gear (tent, stove, food) closest to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The floor mat can be packed under the flap, and the tent under the backpack if there was no more space inside to put it in. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Put small, daily use items (sun cream, maps, glasses etc.) in the pockets. The water bag should be placed in its special pocket, which is generally along the back.

The Easyfit system
This patented system allows you to adjust your bag while you have it on you, with just a single movement, so that it fits your body shape: for maximum comfort.

How to adjust your Forclaz EasyFit backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps, belt straps, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. PLACE THE BELT ON YOUR HIPS (it should cover your pelvic bones) and TIGHTEN IT. Then PULL THE EasyFit TOGGLE, the strap tanks go around your shoulders. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.

EasyFit effectiveness tests are carried out by our Research and Development teams
User-friendly design: adjustment time is 2.3 times shorter with EasyFit backpacks and number of reversals = 0 for the Easyfit bag. Also, the EasyFit system does not affect the quality of the adjustments when compared with standard adjustment system: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable on a 4% Friedman statistical test, users also noted better adjustments 6 times more often.

Environmental measurements
DECATHLON, together with Quechua, has decided to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. This work follows an experiment that began in July 2011 with the French Ministry of Ecology. Scores ranging from A to E were awarded based on comparisons among Quechua backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale

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.

10-year technical partnership warranty
The Strenfit Component Brand, 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. The results enable Quechua and Strenfit to guarantee the tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date stated on the receipt.

10-year warranty, conditions

Product test
All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.

Stockage tips
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.
