Purchased this backpack to start walking days in Scotland’s Munro’s. Excellently comfortable with lots for support and great value for money
Very good quality, light and strong. Definitely recommend and value for money.
I bought this for cycling. My previous rucksack was waterproof but heavy so was looking for something a little lighter. This is a good product particularly for the price. A decent capacity - will hold a loaf of bread plus tools and a waterproof if needed. Materials used seem good but isn't waterproof although it wasn't advertised as such either, but seems fine for showers. The formed semi-rigid back panel is good for walking but when cycling tends to press a bit on the lower back. Not uncomfortable though. The straps seem a little long and the absence of secondary fastenings for taking up slack means the spare flaps about in the wind. There are some elastic loops which I assume are for this but they don't really work.
All in all a good value rucksack, nice styling and light weight. Recommended.

Would be better waterproof.
It seems there is a massive design flaw with this particular backpack, in that the back plate digs into ones back when worn. Maybe this isn't a problem for someone who is 5'8 or less, but anyone taller will surely have the same issue. It's unbearable, and so I'm returning it for that reason.
Thanks for your feedback on the Quechua Forclaz 20 Air backpack. I apologise for the inconvenience caused by the back plate. I will pass on the information to the product manager for the product to investigate further.
Thanks for getting in touch

I wanted something smaller than the Sherpa pack I currently have. Something for day use, not heavy, looks good and basically does the job I ask of it at a great price. Look no further than this bag, I've used it for hiking, walking, cycling, fishing etc.. Nothing it can't do and its comfortable to wear for large amounts of time. Very happy with this pack and I look forward to using it more and more.
Looks, weight, space, functionality
Great bag, not too expensive, good size, very practical, love the design. Very happy with my purchase!
I bought one and I had to return it. It is probably a good backpack for someone on the short side, but if you are around 6 feet tall the curved back panel will hit your back towards the bottom and the feeling is not nice at all. I do not know why they added that curve as the bigger model (30l) back is flat and it is way more comfortable. Go figure.
I'm sorry to hear about your inconvenience with the Quechua Forclaz 20 backpack.
I have already forwarded your feedback to our product manager in France.
I would recommend you to try these models with a different back shape:
