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.

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.

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.

Used for 1 week or less
Anyone looking for a small pack for running will be happy with this. It actually has more room than I expected. It is lightweight and fits well, so you can hardly tell you're carrying it. A bargain price and looks at the minute to be decent quality.

Very good backpack as it is comfortable and in shape with the body. Easy to carry and to open/close. It is light and has different pockets! Very good quality too.
Everything
Best value for money and highly specified
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
My first rucksack was a Forclaz 20. It's been all over the place with me but now and again I just needed that little bit more room. Looked at loads of daysacks from different manufacturers. A lot of them very expensive. Went down to Decathlon in Sheffield and compared this and a Lowe Alpine bag which were on offer for the same price. I chose the Forclaz 30 because quite simply it ticked all of the boxes and had a ventilation backing system thrown in too. Extremely happy with it. The only negative like the other reviewers have said is that it could do with an integral rain cover.
Pole holder, mesh pockets and waist strap pocket.
Lack of integral rain cover.
Good item for day out
I won this bag in a monthly comp and was extremely pleased to do so. It reflects excellent value and I would have happily bought one. There are plenty of pockets and the longer shape design balances well on the back, comfort being enhanced by the air-flow system. There is enough adjustment for all sizes although, as a tall man, I would prefer the shoulder straps a little longer. Overall, a very, very good product.

A good rucksack with plenty of space, air back is great preventing sweat build up between rucksack and users back. Straps are padded and all adjustable to fit most people. The rucksack did not come with a rain cover but a dedicated cover is available for a reasonable cost from Decathlon.
A wel built rucksack, airflow back is useful
No rain cover included with rucksack
Get this backpack: Lightweight, sturdy, perfect
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This little backpack punches above it's weight. It is superb. Lightweight, waterproof, well designed and with some excellent features you would associate with a more expensive backpack. It is superb value. We've taken it on hikes and it's fabulous. We've taken it on a city break and it's equally superb there too. Backs enough to be useful and really well designed with enough pockets and accessible areas. The added plus is the shoulder straps and the mesh covered back support. Very comfortable and well thought out. This is a premium product at a great value price point.
Great value for money. Lightweight. Great design

Light and well vented
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This is a very lightweight bag for the size and sits well on the back keeping you well vented. Two side pockets easily take water bottles but no option to insert a bladders and tube. Would be good to have come with rain cover but the separate purchase from Decathlon fitted very well.
ligth weight, well vented back
No rain cover, not set up for water pouch & tube
Great Size Back Pack

This is a great backpack for day trips out. Everything can e located in convenient easy to access pockets.
My daughter has used it on three DofE day trips and weight of it makes it easy to carry all day. It also large enough that your can carry a fair amount in the central pocket.
Good Size, Lightweight, Easy access to pockets
