Technical Information

1
How can I pack my bag for maximum comfort?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. The ground sheet can be placed under the flap, 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.
2
How do I adjust the height of my bag?
Set the bag for the height you think will be correct and then adjust it (see. "Adjusting your backpack"). With the belt on your pelvis, put the straps around the front part of your shoulders and the load adjuster straps (which are sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45° (they should never be horizontal or vertical). When trying it on, if the back seems too short or too long, readjust and try again until you are satisfied.
3
How to adjust your backpack?
First, loosen all the straps (shoulder straps, belt straps, load adjuster straps). Put the backpack on. For bags with a capacity of over 50L, place the belt on the hips (the belt must wrap around the iliac bones of 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.

Environmental measurements
Decathlon has chosen to inform you about the environmental impact of trekking backpack products for the duration of their life cycle. 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
5
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.

10-year guarantee
The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is under guarantee, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.

Composition
Main fabric : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Lining : 100.0% Polyester (PES)

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.

Product test
We test the resistance of the bag to abrasion, tearing, the resistance of colours to UV rays and washing and waterproofing. Tests are conducted in the field and laboratory. Then a mannequin reproduces wear on the weighted sac via fast walking movements for thousands of cycles to test the resistance of assemblages. The components (fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc.) are also tested separately. As a result we can guarantee these bags for 10 years.

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.

Issue with the Backstraps
Used for 1 week or less
I have used it for one week and feeling much pain due to the slim back-straps of this product. The back-straps hold the shoulders very tightly and as it is not much cushioned and broader like 'TREKKING RUCKSACK FORCLAZ 70'.
I suppose the back-straps of this product needs to provide more comfortable support. I am trying to replace the product.

Good product..we can store for 4days things....
Very Disappointing
Used for 1 week or less
I have used several bagpacks and first time it is very disappointing.
Side nets are too tights to fit a water bottle.. and front net is too small to keep a hanky will not fit.
Pockets use internal space which reduces the size.
No internal pocket.
It hurt my both shoulders even after all adjustments in 14 km trek.
I missed my 40l bag. :(

As u know we are in India, cases of theft and burglary are high. I wanted to keep my bag at the railway station luggage counter but they denied seeing the rope styled zip lockers. I was amazed to see that other brand's backpacks were kept but I was denied because of this. I know that you also have an option to buy safety bag covers for travel purpose. But don't u think it will just add on to the overall weight when we don't want anything to be left behind.
Some other issues.
The side nets are too tight to keep a water bottle.
Hurt my shoulders !

The left strap kept biting in to my flesh. Not enough padding length! And all the ninjas had very little slack!
Response of the brand
Hello Mr Rathore,

Thank you for your feedback on the Forclaz 50 Trekking Backpack. We are really sorry about the unpleasant experience you have had with our product, and we completely understand your disappointment. There are cases in the past that this has happened due to the improper loading or because the height of the backpack is not adjusted as per your size. I have included links for your reference to help you with this. However, if you still feel the padding is not sufficient, you can visit any of our stores to have it exchanged or refunded.

The bag is very good with strong and sturdy built. It has a few very useful pockets and the design is very convenient. For this size , it stores a lot of things without any trouble.
