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.
2
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.
4
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.

Fragile & Difficult to Use
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I bought this for specific use as a daypack during my recent trek to the Everest Base Camp. The main irritant was lack of any external pockets except one on the flap. The insides of the pack were like a Black Hole & I had to use a headlamp even during the day to see the contents. The mesh pockets on the sides could not take the weight of the 750 ml bottles & developed holes in no time.
Overall an unsatisfactory product & not recommended for hiking/trekking.
Response of the brand
Hello Sudeep,

Thanks for your valuable time to review the Arpenaz 30 hiking backpack by quechua. I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you on your amazing adventure to the base camp of mighty Everest.

To give you a small insight on the major features of a backpack that you need for a trek,
1. Back padding to give you support and maintain the shape even when loaded
2. Cushioned shoulder straps for comfort 
3. Ventilation at the back to keep it away from the sweat
 
The Arpenaz 30 backpack is designed for hiking(one day) activity on the lowlands and the kind of gear a user carries is not same as your requirement. If your requirement is a daypack for treks, I request you to consider the Forclaz 30 air backpack by Quechua (Link: https://m.decathlon.in/p/8332422_forclaz-30-air-hiking-backpack-black-red.html) which has the answer for the issues you faced on your trek.

I apologise again for the inconvenience caused to you and request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and get the Arpenaz 30 backpack exchanged for the Forclaz 30 (if you like it) or seek for a refund.

I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.

Sportively,
Sandeep NAIR

Response of the brand
Hello Mr. Dipankar,

Thanks for your feedback on the Arpenaz 30 backpack. I apologize for the inconvenience caused to you.

Just to add an insight into the backpacks by Quechua, all our backpacks are tested by users(hikers) in real time on hikers for quality and comfort, also in laboratory under similar conditions a user will find on a hike. This also allows us to assure a 2 year replacement warranty on all our products. Attaching a video of test for your reference - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_P8UBg1fYuY.

Now with the bag you have I believe there is a manufacturing defect and I request you kindly to visit any of our stores closer to you and get an exchange for the same.

I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products in future.
