How is the 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.
Backpack technical tests.
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests: fabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips, etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to wear and tearing, colour-resistance to UV rays and washing, waterproofing etc. A test of 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 then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.

Information / Concept / Technology
All our backpacks undergo use tests carried out by users who represent the target market, in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team the product manager up with people who are unaffiliated with Quechua, to test, improve and validate our products.
Store your bag in a dry place.
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 necessary. After a few years, you can refresh the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.
