All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. In particular, our "Mission Tests" bring together the product manager with people who have no affiliation to QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
We test the bag both in the lab and in the field to ensure its resistance to abrasion, wear, washing, water-resistance and colour-fastness under UV rays. Then, the weighted backpack is placed on a mannequin that simulates ageing by replicating thousands of fast walking movements, to check the durability of assemblies. The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc.) are also tested separately so that we can guarantee these bags for 10 years.
Store your bag in a dry place.
To ensure the fabrics retain their initial properties (waterproofing in particular), you are advised not to machine wash, tumble dry, dry clean or bleach your backpack. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, you are advised to use warm soapy water and a brush if necessary. After a few years of use, you can refresh the water-repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.
