Technical Information

1
How to fill my bag for optimal comfort?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Carry heavy gear (tent, stove, food) closest to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet can be placed under the flap, the tent goes under the bag if it doesn't fit inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. In the pockets, spread out the small equipment you use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc). If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
2
The Easyfit system
This patented system enables your bag to be adjusted on your back, in one movement, intuitively, to better adapt to your body: for maximum comfort.
3
How to adjust your backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BAG ON. PLACE THE BELT ON THE HIPS (it should cover your pelvic bones) and TIGHTEN IT. Then PULL THE EasyFit TOGGLES, the strap block will go round your shoulders. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.
4
Tests carried out by our Research and Development department on the effectiveness of EasyFit system
User-friendly concept: actual adjustment time 2-3 times shorter with the EasyFit backpack, and number of times you have to go back = 0 for the EasyFit bag. The EasyFit system does not affect the quality of the adjustments when compared with a standard adjustment system: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable in the 4% Friedman statistical test, users also observed 6 times more good adjustments.
5
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. We then empty the balls into a graduated container to measure the equivalent volume in litres within a few percentage points. The net weight is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
6
10-year warranty
The warranty covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty is only valid with the product and sales receipt. If the product is under warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial warranty does not affect any statutory rights that are applicable in the country of purchase.
7
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall score from A to E is given to help you easily identify the most environmentally-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc).

Test
All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.

Product test
We test the bag's resistance to abrasion, wear, its colour fastness under UV rays, after washing and its waterproofing in the laboratory and in the field. Subsequently, a mannequin simulates ageing of the weighed down bag over the years using fast walking actions, over thousands of cycles, to check the resistance of assemblies. The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips...) are also tested separately, allowing us to guarantee these bags for 10 years.

Stockage tips
Store your bag in a dry place.

FORCLAZ BACKPACKING BAG ESCAPE 70 BLUE
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I had my sights set on this for over a year, when my old rucksack gave way, I decided to buy this for my road trip. I had planned to carry my camera, chef knives & camp gear which conveniently accommodated all of it. I am never going to buy another brand product!
Suitcase In A Backpack
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
This is a fantastic bit of kit! Looks and carries like a Backpack, but loads like a suitcase.
The back system is really good and the perfect fit is easily achieved. Also unlike any other backpack I've known, there are zip mesh pockets on either side for those small items that get easily lost amongst what's been packed and shifted, after rummaging for something at the bottom of the bag. Although that isn't an issue either, because the whole back of the bag has a zip surround, meaning everything is easily accessible whether at the top, middle or bottom of the bag.
The top of the bag is a bag in itself and separates easily from the main bag. This makes it ideal for trips to the shower block when staying on site.
The outer pockets are of a generous size, and ideal for carrying 1l sports bottles. The belt pocket is a good size too with a decent zip allowing it to open fully. This comfortably houses a mobile power pack, and allows a charge lead to be connected to a mobile device whilst on the move.
The lower compartment is accessible from both inside and outside of the bag, and at the bottom of the bag there's a pocket for the included cover. This though is no ordinary cover. It also can be used as a separate bag. Again, ideal when on site, and needing to maybe do a bit of laundry. It can also be used to carry the backpack itself over short distances, or when on public transport, so as to avoid the need to carry it awkwardly or struggle in a confined space to put it on.
All in all this ticks all the boxes, and I highly recommend it.
Excellent backpack for 11 nights away
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Great design and quality of fabrics.
A lot easier to access things with the ability to open like a suitcase.
Comfortable to wear when full (of clothing).
Included raincover is handy for keeping it all together when flying.
The best travel partner
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
It not only has the best volume-to-weight ratio, but also smartly designed to fit in all the necessary travel supplies in the most efficient manner.
very good product.
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I recently used this product in Goechela trek. Though slightly bulky but it is awsome, comfortable.
A Very good backpack for sturdy folks
Used for 7 to 12 months
I think I am one of the very first customers in India to buy this bag as soon as it arrived in Hyderabad Decathlon store. Well, There should have been a "Very Good" between your "Good" and "Excellent" rating. I am rating it as "Very Good" as it serves all purpose of a trekker, camper and traveler. The back open system like a suitcase has made it unique in design, and it's a delight thereby using the product. The top portion of the bag can be used as a side-satchel - that's another great feature. Though a locking mechanism doesn't help much in terms of security in this kind of backpack, I must say, it's a unique feature and definitely a plus.

The only downsides I found are that the bag is quite heavy, even when it's empty and that the rain cover that comes with it is also very heavy and takes a good amount of space, even after folding up neatly. The rain cover, I feel, could have been little thinner, like a light plastic one. If you are a serious camper like me and are carrying your tent / sleeping bag etc along with the bag, it may be a bit heavier while ascending steeps.

Else, a fantastic product.
Great backpacking bag
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
Comfortable and roomy and has a very handy day pack that attaches to the backpack. Open to the front so it's easier for packing. Used it for 2 weeks while backpacking in Europe and was very happy with it!
Awesome pack but heavy
Used for 1 week or less
Disclaimer: I only used this for a few days.
I loved the convenient packets and lockable main compartment. Overall awesome bag. However, I did notice it is around 2x heavier than my main 70L bag. In the end this weight issue was a deal-breaker for me, although I loved everything else.
