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.

Have used this on two treks now. Absolutely love the fact that it opens up like a suitcase from the front making it convenient to look for things instead of digging in. Love the colour too. had to wait a long time before it came back in stock

Very gud bag..the front zipper that opens the main compartment completely is very usefull.

But an area of improvement cud be side pockets..the side pockets shud be an extention giving additional space even if the main compartment is full. Currently the side pockets r of minimum use if the main compartment is heavily stuffed like teton scout 3400 bag. Also if u can make this bag water bladder ready...

Also the front compression belt would compress only to a limit . In case the bag is only half full the front compression belt doesnot help to compress the bag enough..

But overall the bag is a very gud ...
The front zipper is very usefull
Side pocktes shud be outside like teton 400
It's better

Shoulder strips were torn in my second trek.
Strips at the shoulders lost stiches and I ended up loosing balance during my trek. Went to nearest store and to my surprise i heard that shoulder strip is not considered for guarentee. And no service is available at decatlon to stich it back. I have to go to local shops to get it stiched. I purchased this product with lots of hope and love. This incident made me to loose trust on decatlon products.
Response of the brand
Hi Sandeep,Thanks for sharing your feedback with us. I am sorry to hear that you had faced issue while your trek. All Quechua backpacks are tested infield by users before suggesting it to our customers(ref:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4yEgpNx8L5o) The main stitches of the backpack can take only up to 30kg, the fabric can take 40kg, and zip can be used 10,000 times.The backpack warranty covers only manufacturing faults and defects. Manhandling, like lifting the product with a single strap normally leads to this kind of issue. 

If the product is used in the right way as recommended, kindly send some pictures of the product to varun.nair@decathlon.com, so that I can look into it and help you with this.

Sorry again for the inconvenience caused.Awaiting for your response,Varun Nair E-Sport Manager DECATHLON

The backpack is over all very good. But the adjustment of the load lifters is very limited. I adjusted my pack for the full small size of the shoulder straps. but the range of the Load lifting straps came to the end not pulling the bag to the front of the body, There by putting more load on the shoulder straps. other than that a very good product
Good quality, easy to operate top and front zip.
Load lifting straps didnt do their job much
Perfect backpack for your track

★ Excellent Backpack for Several Days Trekking. ★
The near perfect backpack for 8-9 days trekking. The most lovable feature of this bag is that you can open from top as well as from front side, a rare feature I never found in any other bags. Marerials look very durable. Zips, shoulder pads are okay. The only two things that I didn't like are stitching thread ends are not concealed, which could've been placed in between two layers & the second one is that it is not waterproof. So rain cover is a must buy. I wouldn't have minded had it been waterproof at reasonable higher price for this. I recommend this bag for trekking.
I am a bonafide buyer of this bag. I am yet to use it in my next month's trekking. Please, refer to other reviews before buying as my review is based on look only. I'll edit my review, if needed, after I use it first time for 8 days Himalayan Trekking.
