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 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.

The Easyfit system
This patented system allows you to adjust your bag while on, with just a single movement, so that it fits your body shape: for maximum comfort.
3
How to adjust your Forclaz EasyFit backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. PLACE THE BELT ON YOUR HIPS (it should cover your pelvic bones) and TIGHTEN. Then PULL THE EasyFit TOGGLE, the strap tank goes around your shoulders. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.
4
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.

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.

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 7 to 12 months
A nice hiking and travel backpack with well placed accessories add-on's.

I like the spinal support with acupuncture like prongs.
It would be nice if the lower compartment had a bit more of volume, strengthening of the metal frame and a reduction in price of the product
sturdy with metal frame running along the back
lack of volume in lower compartment;
Perfect bag for longer trips
Used for More than 1 year
The bag I wanted needed to be light, spacious, durable and with plenty of features. I finalized on the forclaz 70 easyfit men.
The bag didn't disappoint me. We have travelled together to Sikkim (goecha la and month long mountaineering course), Ladakh(stok kangri) and some monsoon treks in Maharashtra( nalchivaat). This fella has been through a lot but still surprises me with the support and durability it provides. A few scratches here and there but those are battle scars(the ripstop fabric doesn't let the tears and cuts go any bigger). The in built rain cover helped a lot during climbing/crossing waterfalls in Nalchivaat. The 70 liter space was enough for carrying tent, sleeping bag and mat, food, clothes, 2L water and all the other essentials I needed for any of my long trek/expeditions/travels. The gender specific fit was pretty comfortable and easy to adjust too.

I bought a smaller Osprey Kestrel backpack for my day walks with my DofE groups and l don't think it is a patch on this bag. The many pockets allow you to store a multitude of items that are easy reachable. The zip make getting to the bottom of your bag easy. A great bag at a great price.
