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.

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

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.

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 7 to 12 months
A nice hiking and travel backpack with well placed accessories add-on's.

I like the spinal support with acupuncture like prongs.
It would be nice if the lower compartment had a bit more of volume, strengthening of the metal frame and a reduction in price of the product
sturdy with metal frame running along the back
lack of volume in lower compartment;
Perfect bag for longer trips
Used for More than 1 year
The bag I wanted needed to be light, spacious, durable and with plenty of features. I finalized on the forclaz 70 easyfit men.
The bag didn't disappoint me. We have travelled together to Sikkim (goecha la and month long mountaineering course), Ladakh(stok kangri) and some monsoon treks in Maharashtra( nalchivaat). This fella has been through a lot but still surprises me with the support and durability it provides. A few scratches here and there but those are battle scars(the ripstop fabric doesn't let the tears and cuts go any bigger). The in built rain cover helped a lot during climbing/crossing waterfalls in Nalchivaat. The 70 liter space was enough for carrying tent, sleeping bag and mat, food, clothes, 2L water and all the other essentials I needed for any of my long trek/expeditions/travels. The gender specific fit was pretty comfortable and easy to adjust too.
