Technical Information

1
Backpack technical tests
All components are approved in laboratory tests, including: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc. Example, for a fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness in UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over several years, to assess the strength of the fabrication.The backpack is weighted then placed on a dummy which then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles

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.

A ranking to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated for the whole life cycle with different indicators. An overall ABCDE ranking has been created to make it easy for you to identify the products with the best environmental impact by comparing them with other similar products (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).

Bot it n the 1st thing i tried was to test it. Well sady in less than 5mins the water leacked out/in. So i guess its just water resistant for light rains or for small period of time. The bag looks cool.

This rucksack squashes down in to a tiny integral stuff bag and has very good capacity and strength given the lightness of materials and price. It's actually the perfect shape to keep a pair of diving fins in if touring sandy places. No external pocket means it's not for repeated super quick access as you must unwind the waterproof closure but that's no great hardship. Surprisingly strong and roomy. Waterproofness didn't really get tested on my 2 weeks beach hopping and exploring trip.

I bought this rucksack for its compact size which is genuinely pocketable and so can be taken anywhere. The material is thin and lightweight but appears quite tough. To test its claim to be waterproof I filled the sack with crumpled paper and rolled and clipped the top as recommended, I then gave it a good dousing from a hosepipe. I was surprised to see the water just roll of and after a good shake opened it up to discover the contents to be dry though care should be taken when unrolling the top as water can gather here. So yes it is waterproof provided the roll top is fastened correctly but due to its light weight I doubt whether it would remain so if submerged though I have not tested this. Overall I am very impressed with this sack which is comfortable to wear due to the close spacing of the shoulder straps (unlike some rival products which are also much more expensive) I can't comment on durability as I have not had the sack long but as an occasional sack I feel sure that it will meet all expectations. For the price this offers excellent value. Well done Quechua.
Compact, waterproof, comfortable.
Would benefit with an external drinks pocket
