Technical Information

1
How to pack a backpack?
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 can be placed under the flap, 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. Put the water bladder in the compartment provided
2
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.
3
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.
4
The Symbium Access system
The Symbium Access combines the advantages of the Symbium system that enables freedom of movement thanks to the waist adjustment around the lumbar region. it is also equipped with the Access System: 1 pocket that can be easily moved to the front of the upper body: providing easy access to many items while walking, possibility of reading a map easily. This also allows you to shift some of the weight to the front,: helps the hiker to have a straighter back and a more normal stance.
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.
6
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.

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.

Good but could be better
Used for 7 to 12 months
I have been using this backpack for a close to 6 months. Quality wise I'm surprised, been tested to all extreme conditions, still top notch, the only con's I felt was the strap become loose. if you try to do some adventurous climbing with the backpack, you are screwed. and the map pouch is usable, but not recommended as it gonna be hectic while trekking for hours.

But I would recommend this product. Bang for the buck. Normal trekking in happy. If you know how to pack your bag properly, you know what I'm telling. you could carry a lot than you imagine. Quality wise till date is amazing.
Quechua has rework on the design

Used for 1 week or less
Well engineered back bag for hikers. Light weight... Good enough for a week long hiking..
Good product but it can be made better.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This rucksack is great however not value worth money, the height adjustment strap doesn't stay fixed after we adjust it. Also the other straps do not stay fixed it loosens while walking and I had to adjust it after every 30mins during trek. I'd recommend this trekking backpack for 10-12 days however decathlon should do quality checks before bringing the product into store specially the straps, stitches and other functions of the bag.
A Good back pack which could have been the Best
Used for 7 to 12 months
This is a good back with good amount of space.
The material is very tough
All accessible pockets are placed well
Backpack is really comfortable on shoulders

The concerns I have
The bag slides down the waist sometime
The height adjuster doesn't stay constant
If you set to particular height, it changes and goes to a higher one because of which the bag slides down the waist.

I haven't checked the waterproofing quality yet

Overall its a good back pack which could have been the best
This is a good back with good amount of space. The
The bag slides down the waist sometime The height
Crappy Bag, crappy customer service
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
In life, I have made many mistakes, but nothing comes close to buying the 'SYMBIUM ACCESS 70+10L MEN HIKING BACKPACK NAVY BLUE'.

I will tell you why:

1) The entire phenomenon of 'Symbium Access' is flawed, the lower centre where the strap is placed can only be adjusted in one direction, that is downwards. If you want the entire shoulder strap to be fixed at a stationary upward position, you can't. The moment you'll start with your trek, it'll start to jerk your back, and in a matter of seconds will loosen up while descending.

2) The upper portion (the 10L bag) that is attached at the top, which can be brought in front; is supported by elastic that keeps on shuffling with each and every movement while trekking, making the walk almost impossible owing to its excessive weight. The only way out is to forcibly, bring it to the front and attach it to the clip on the waist and ensure that you keep the pocket(10 L bag) empty.

3) Last, but definitely not the least is the 'waterproofing', there is practically nothing preventing the clothes inside. In a matter of 8-12 minutes of light rain, the only time I took to put on the cover to protect the bag, the clothes were drenched, and I literally mean 'drenched', not moist. I was surprised at the end of the trek when I opened the rucksack and saw that most of my clothes were wet and there was practically nothing for me to change.

You can add slider also.
Right thing for long hikes or backpacking
Used for 3 to 6 months
Liked the height adjustment. You can adjust it for a man of 1.7 m to 2 m (5'.5" to 6'5". The weight distribution part is workable and you can remove the part that's on the top. We used it as our hand baggage while going abroad and on reaching just attached it to the backpack again. The front zip is very helpful if you are living out of your backpack for a few days. It is comfortable to carry. Also if you want to attach mats and accessories, it has the provision.
