Technical Information

1
How to fill my bag for optimal comfort?
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, 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
How to adjust 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
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.

Composition
Main fabric : 100.0% Polyester (PES) Lining : 100.0% Polyester (PES)

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 1 week or less
Pros:
Thick skin and rigged
comfortable backpack waist strap.

Cons:
Weight 2.1Kg (not good for hiking)
Can't fit water balder properly
Solder strap is not wide
Side pockets are almost not usable
No rain cover is provided at this price
Not enough safety pockets.
can't lock the bag
Big & Good Backpack
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Was going for 2+ week hike & decided for this 90L instead of 70L, but note that it's really big.
For most part I didn't use side pockets and wasn't using all 90L and the straps were pulled to make it smaller.

Liked the build quality & the front handle for lifting is very useful.

10 year warranty seems like a sales pitch as it doesn't cover routine wear & tear and warrants only against manufacturing defects and so won't be of any use after some time. But don't feel it will be required due to good build quality.

2 metal bars allow it to stand upright even when not filled completely.

Recommended product.

The quality of the product is very good. the tough material and the most comfortable user experience of the product prompted me to buy this Forclaz 90 back pack.
Good for treks lasting upto a week
Used for 1 week or less
This was the biggest size available at the store so I went for this.. I am satisfied with the backpack in general . Two mains issues I have are 1. The shoulder straps are narrow and even though they are well padded tend to dig into your shoulder when loaded to the full. 2 there is no way I can lock the main compartment securely even using a cable lock .
perfect backpack

Went to Thailand in november and thought to buy a backpack since we had to travel all over the country because I thought it would be more practical...and it was!!!
Very comfortable, spacious and with a very usefull zip that allows you to use the backpack as a luggage. brilliant.
