Technical Information

1
Backpack technical tests.
We carry out laboratory tests to check components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips... For example, with fabrics: resistance to rubbing, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing...A test on the final product which speeds up the effects of impact on the backpack over the years, to check resistance of the assemblies: with ballasts, they are placed on a mannequin and the movements which accompany quick walking over thousands of cycles are reproduced.

10-year warranty, technical partner
The heavy clothing research and development service, a partner of Quechua, overseeing the research and approval of components and assemblies, completed tests simulating ageing of backpacks. These tests focused on the components, seams and the end product. The results enable Quechua and DECATHLON to guarantee these tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date on the till receipt.
3
10-year warranty conditions
The warranty covers backpack defaults, with the exception of those resulting from standard wear and tear and abnormal usage conditions. This special 10-year warranty will only be applied upon presentation of the product and till receipt, and where the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. This commercial warranty does not exclude applicable legal warranties dependent on the country and/or State.

How is bag volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard method: small balls are used to fill the main compartment as well as each pocket. We then empty the balls into a graduated container which provides the equivalent volume in litres with a tolerance ranging a couple of %. The weight when empty is that displayed by our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
5
How do I adjust my backpack?
FIRSTLY, LOOSEN all the buckles (straps, belt, load boosters). PUT ON THE BAG. For bags of 50 l and more, PLACE THE BELT ON THE HIPS (it must cover the pelvic iliac bones) AND TIGHTEN IT. For smaller volumes, place around the waist. TIGHTEN THE STRAP BUCKLES. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD BOOSTERS to your liking.
6
How do I fill my backpack?
Place sleeping equipment at the bottom. Place heavy materials near the back (tent, camping stove, food). Clothing should be placed around them. The ground sheet should be placed under the flap, the tent should be placed under the bag where there is no space inside. Keep waterproof jackets and fleece close to hand. Small items will be divided amongst the pockets (sun cream, card, glasses...). The water pocket is generally placed in the compartment which runs along the back.

A score for comparing products' environmental impact
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 committed to visually displaying environmental information. For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

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.

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.
Small, well fitting, good bladder

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.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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
None
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
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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
no rain protection, water bottle pocket
