Technical Information

1
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. The groundsheet may be place 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
Adjusting your backpack height?
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 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.

Environmental measurements
Decathlon 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
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, conditions
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.

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.

The rucksack is great. I really needed one for my travels. Comfortable to carry too. I just wish there was an extra small compartment in the front to accommodate things like earphones, chargers, etc.
The poor load design

Used for 7 to 12 months
The circumference gets smaller towards the bottom of the bag, making it difficult for the bag to stand with a smaller base.
Also the bag has 2 sections divided horizontally by a flab in between. While the smaller section of the bag is located towards the bottom of the bag. The flab will tear off with continuous loading by the heavier section.

The rest of the design is good.
Amazing

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This is a wonderful product. Nice cushioning and back support. Also you don't feel the weight on your shoulders with the adjustable back support.
I had to walk a lot carrying this filled full for several miles at a stretch .
The bag is very spacious. I recently used it for my 3 weeks long Europe trip. It is a little on the expensive side but after using it I consider it's worth for it.
awesome

I have accomplished eleven days of Himalaya trekking by using the product of Decathlon. There is always scope for improvement. My good wish for Decathlon for continuing with improved products and service towards sports in India.
Quality Issue.

Used for More than 2 years
Its really a nice product which i have used roughly through all journey i have made . But the shoulder support really hurts my shoulder if i keep wearing it for a longer duration. Also, in the new bag that are recently in the store, I have noticed that the back support with an aluminium rod is only one, instead of two which i bought earlier and the material used to make the backpack is thinner then before. So i think the quality of the product has a bit degrading. I hope we can do a bit better as this bag is really awesome.Quality
Very good for 10-15 days trek

Used for 3 to 6 months
Over all experience was vey good. But the backpaxk itself is heavy that my luggage weight got rejcted thrice during Himalayan Trek.

I had taken veey few and essential things while weight check, butvit got rejected again and again.

When i was successful to convince the team leader that whatever the exess weight is a bagpack weight, he allowed me to carry that over weight.

Though i didn't have a problem at all as the backpack was perfectly fit on my back. I was managed to carry on my own for 15 days in a snow.

But if the emtpy backpack weight can be reduced, it will be easier to carry more easy to others.

Otherwise the size is pretty good, even if you over pack few things, it manages to take load.

IT LOOKS LIKE THERE IS A COMPARTMENT FOR THE HYDRA PACK, but at the same time the rod which supports your back is also in the same compartment.
I STRONGLY FEEL THAT IF THIS IS THE SAME COMPARTMENT TO KEEP HYDRA PACK, IT MAY LEAD TO DAMAGE OR PIERCE OR TEAR YOUR HYDRA by the rod. (So i didnt use this to keep my hydra inside it and take risk).

I SUGGEST, that you should make a Separate compartment (or cover the rod with some additional layer of same cloth material) at the back (inside) like forclaz 30 and 40. It will be much easier to carry and separate from other things which may lead to pierce or damage by any other object(s).
Good support, great volume

Used for 7 to 12 months
1. Waterproofing is excellent
2. Volume is good for a winter trek, I can fit my jacket and clothes comfortably. Sleeping bag too if you use a compression sack.
3. The bag is slightly big I'll say for a female solo trekker, and the back support can be improved as it tends to sway side to side a bit while I'm decending at a speed.
4. The hip support is well padded and the pocket is very useful, though it fits a little loose if I'm not wearing my jacket (I27" waist).
