This is the best product they have in this segment. I've been using this Rucksack for more than a year now and I've trekked for more than 1000 Kms in this time. The bag inner lining is worn out so quickly, the pulley of the additional 10L pouch has become loose and recently a 25mm buckle got broken, the one which holds the hood and body together. They don't have any spares for 25mm buckle, though the UK Decathlon has it. Really disappointed with the service on this. I've bought so much of decathlon gear for my travel and to have the main one unusable is disappointing. Hope to hear a response about spares.
Tough, Like a dozen of utility points, Comfortable on the go. Perfect for some serious hiker
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.
Solder strap comfortable
comfortable waist strap.
Axis works very will and shock absorbers are great.
Top bag is 500Gms and completely not full.
the Side water holder gets torn easily.
Thin skin and not rigged
Side pockets are almost not usable
Not good for rugged use and mountain hiking.
Aluminum back support bends easily.
I have been using this rucksack last four or five months and I have completed four tours. Clothes are tearing near stitches.

Hello Friends, I do around 20-25 trek a year, I have a whole range of Quechua Hiking Rucksack. The all I want to say about this symbium access 70+10 is this is the best Rucksack available in india just at 9999. I purchased it before 30months when it was launch @ 11999 still I feel that I got value for the money product. I did my whole roadies journey with this rucksack it's simply awesome. I appreciate Quechua team.
Well engineered back bag for hikers. Light weight... Good enough for a week long hiking..
The most comfortable rucksack with a great capacity of 80 litres. The top 10 litre pouch is a very handy thing as I carried a few of my lightweight camera gear in it, which was easy to access when brought to the front. There could have been an elastic pocket/pouch in the front of the bag to keep a few other stuff.
The bag quality is extremely poor and unsatisfying. Was not expecting this from such a reputed brand " Quechua". The material used in making the bag is not even price worth it. Shoulders pain upon carrying it for some time unlike being told. Pure waste of money. Am extremely unsatisfied by this product.

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.
