Technical Information

1
Laboratory test
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, includingfabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips,etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to rubbing, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing...A test on the final product, which speeds up the effects of impact on the backpack over the years, to check resistance of the assemblies: the backpack is weighted then placed on a dummy which then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.

10-year technical partnership guarantee
The heavy stitching research and development department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
3
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 covered by the warranty, it will be repaired free of charge or exchanged. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.

How is 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.
5
How to adjust your backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should 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.
6
Environmental measurements
The environmental impact of each product is calculated for the product's entire life cycle, using different indicators. A general ABCDE mark is attributed to help you identify the best environmental performance by comparing products to each other (t-shirts, rucksacks, etc). Decathlon is a voluntary supporter of the environmentally-friendly labelling approach.For more information visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

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.

Most people will just use this pack for walking which is fine. But for those running ultra distance races requiring more mandatory kit than your usual fell running pack can handle, this pack is a cheap and excellent alternative. Lots of well thought out bits and well made. Comfortable too.

So, this bag? Perfect for that price. I have been using it for a full month now as a day pack, 5-day hike pack, travel bag and even grocery bag. As another review here sum up perfectly "sometimes simple is good". It is a pack that is simply a pack, and you cannot ask for anything more. Quality is, as usual for Decathlon brand, really good.
I'm sure there's bag with more fancy options (but for 10 times the price), but if you need a good pack? Take that one, you will be satisfied.
material quality, price, design
COULD use another external pocket
Sometimes simple is good.
This bag is a bargain. I have bags with dozens of pockets but I wanted a simple straightforward bag for my trip up Mt Snowdon. It held my waterproofs, food, water and bits and bobs and was very comfortable to wear. If you know how to pack a bag a single main compartment is no problem the top pocket is the size of the flap so roomy for all the things you need to hand and the mesh pockets held nalgene 1lt bottles - not always possible on cheaper bags.

Buckles and straps were fine though I had the chest strap fully extended but I'm broad shouldered. It fit me well with loads of adjustment elsewhere.

As for waterproof. Nope. At this price I didn't want or expect it to be. I never fully trust a bag to be waterproof and with one big main compartment a thick binliner is an easy addition to make it waterproof! There's a rain cover available separately but I personally don't get on with them.

I can lash my poles to the attachments on the front too.

If I have one moan it's the thumb loops. I did use them once to hold my poles for a minute when I needed my hands free but I find them a bit superfluous and the flap around in your peripheral vision at times. A minor issues and nit picking.

As you can probably tell I'm very impressed with this bag for this price. I don't expect it to last decades of hard use but it seems well stitched and put together so only time will tell. Well done Decathlon. Great product at a keen price.
