Technical Information

1
Packing your bag for maximum comfort?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. 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 do I adjust the height of my bag?
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 the straps (shoulder straps, belt straps, 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.
4
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.
5
Environmental measurements
The environmental impacts of the product are calculated over its entire life cycle and with the variety of indicators. An overall ABCDE score is allocated to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to visually displaying environmental information. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

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
I was looking for a BackPack ideal for 2 weeks. I like the way Decathlon explains the features (70l) and translates it to number of days, enabling decision making.
The backpack is light, tough and has a convenient opening on the side to pack like a suitcase.
Quality uncompromised!!
Used for 1 week or less
I recently bought this bag from the store in chennai and the quality seems amazing. the store guy was helpful to me as i was gonna go for my first trek for 8+days to KASOL.
This bag is spacious and the pads are pretty comfy to give it a long lasting experience...
great quality and weight for the price
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This is a nice bag for the price, light weight and enough space for all my gear. Someone said it digs in at the bottom of your back but I haven't had this maybe as i'm only 5ft 6.
