Backpack technical tests.
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, including fabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips, etc. Fabrics are tested forresistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness in UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates several years' treatment to assess the strength of the assembly.The backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.

As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
The Strenfit component brand, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. These tests were conducted on the components, the seams, and the finished product. 10-year guarantee, conditions

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.

Environmental measurements
Oxylane, 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 between Quechua's backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale

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.

Concept
"Air Cooling" certified backpacks are subjected to a laboratory test that measures the carrying system's ventilation effectiveness A heated and perspiring mannequin is used to scientifically and objectively measure how well the pack limits perspiration. This label is only given to packs that perform significantly better than a "basic" model in the range (without any particular cooling system)

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.

Used for 3 to 6 months
This day sack was a such a great purchase. Really good value for money. I didn't find any other bag of a decent day size with the additional features this has: waist straps and a waist pocket, side pockets, rain cover included, air flow/ventilated back and sturdy back insert for comfort, space for water bladder and loop for H20 straw, small internal zip pocket with key loop and large pocket on outside of bag aswell. It's colourful and comfortable, and seems durable too.

This is the best rucksack I've ever had. It's so comfy, mega adjustable, no pressure on shoulders and brilliant cooling system. Looks great too! Designed for teens but fits me perfectly as a small adult woman. I am 5 feet 2 inches.
Very comfy and adjustable. Fits small adult woman.
I love everything about this ruckack.
