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.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
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.
Perfect for every trip
Used for More than 1 year
Have been using it for more than a year and its the perfect bag. Its strong and comfortable. The weight might be on the heavier side for some people but I am ok with it. The only issue is that the choice of color was limited and in this one highlights most of the stains. I carry my tripod with the help of pole loop and its perfect for my 190pro3 tripod. The top can be little shaky if its not properly tightened.

Also can we buy pole loops separately from decathlon ? I could use a few to secure some additional photography gear.

TOUGH GUY
Used for 1 week or less
This is hell of a heavy duty bag. It was fully loaded with innumerable things during my trip for 7days. It tolerated rough handling, jerking and associated mechanical shocks one experience during a travel in extremely crowded place.

I love this bag, because It is so scientifically well balanced that even a 25 kg at the back didn’t feel that way. Walking running sitting, taking sudden turns felt so effortless. Unbelievably well balanced bag. Becomes integral part of your body.

Offsides: 1. no locking system, main vault is easily accessible by anyone . Locking systems comes in higher priced models.

Important: If you are taller than 5'5'', go for 60 litre backpacks. for visiting places for 7 days where you want to keep more shirts, pants associated with warm clothings, you will definitely run out of space. During winter travelling with jackets/warm clothings will definitely be a concern for this volume. Go for 60 litre if you are that tall as I mentioned.
It is just awesome

Already recommended 2 Trekking partners. They will purchase it soon before next trek.
Great Product.
Used for More than 1 year
Used for 2 major treks in dhauladhars. Jalsu Pass Trek (3500 meters) and Indrahar Pass (4342 meters). Very impressive.
Overall Good backpack...
Used for 1 week or less
Overall really good backpack with nice features like front opening and used clothes separator inside.
I just bought it before 2 weeks and used it for 4 days trek from Kodai to Munnar in South india. (I also bought v.good teenz 40L backpack for my teenage daughter along with lots of other great stuff..).
Quality of the sack is real good...sturdy material and many pockets..
But for me I am not fully satisfied mainly for following reason:
Weight: I wish I have lighter backpack instead of this one.
I could not enjoy my trek fully due to this issue...
Can Decathlon Help Me...and Exchange my backpack?
I will be glad and delighted if it can be done. Please.
Thanks,

Additionally I will request the design team to explore the possibility to incorporate another pocket inside to accommodate a few small things which will help better while walking or hiking
The lumber support system is very comfortable
Should have a rain cover
