Technical Information

1
How to pack your bag for optimal comfort?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavier 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, distribute the smaller items that 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 lets you adjust your bag directly on your back, with just a single movement, so that it fits your body shape: for maximum comfort.
3
How to adjust your backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK 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 to suit.
4
EasyFit effectiveness tests are carried out by our Research and Development teams
A user-friendly system: with the Easyfit backpack, adjustment is 2-3 times quicker, and the number of times you have to go back and start over = 0 for the Easyfit bag. Does not affect the quality of the adjustment compared to a bag with a standard adjustment system: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable in the 4% Friedman statistical test, with six times the number of correct adjustments found.
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
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing and contrasting products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative. For more info: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

10-year warranty
The warranty covers any defects/faults with the backpack, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty is only valid with the product itself and the sales receipt. If the product is under warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.

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. In particular, our "Mission Tests" bring together the product manager with people who have no affiliation to QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products. This product is co-designed by sales staff from different stores, who are all keen backpackers and trekkers.

Product test
We test the bag both in the lab and in the field to ensure its resistance to abrasion, wear, washing, water-resistance and colour-fastness under UV rays. Then, the weighted backpack is placed on a mannequin that simulates ageing by replicating thousands of fast walking movements, to check the durability of assemblies. The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc.) are also tested separately so that we can guarantee these bags for 10 years.

Stockage tips
Store your bag in a dry place.

A great rucksack for the Camino
Used for 2 to 8 weeks
I recently started the camino de Santiago, a trek of over 520 miles, I wanted a lockable, 50lt rucksack, as i was staying in hostels, but was durable enough to with stand the journey. The biggest plus for this rucksack, is the way it opens, like a suitcase. This allows full access, to save rummaging around, for items at the bottom. This further allowed for the rucksack to be properly packed, as I was doing on average 20 miles a day, & nothing is worse than having to stop half way thru the day, to re-pack your rucksack. The side pockets easily held a 1 litre water bottle, & it was easier enough to remove it, without taking the rucksack off. It was so easy to adjust the straps, whilst wearing, & the waist strap, helped take the weight off the shoulders.
If your planning a long hike,over different terrain, I would recommend this.
Not recommended for long treks
A backpack weighing empty at 2.3 Kgs is not recommended for a trekker who carries his own load. When one adds to it basic items viz. clothes/ water/ sleeping bags / you will be carrying over 15 kgs on your back and the sheer weight will make your trip miserable. Please note that even 10 kgs will weigh so much more at 3000+ meters than at the confines of your home !!
I have a 40 lts backpack purchased at the store and that too I find heavy.
You need to market ultra light hiking equipment for trekkers.
Response of the brand
Hello Mr. Rinchen,

Thanks for your valuable time to review the Travel 500 backpack by Forclaz. I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you. As a Trekker myself, I completely agree with you on all the points mentioned. 

To give you a small small insight on this product, the Travel 500 backpack as the name says is designed for a backpacker, who does not carry his backpack all the time on his back. You are moving between town to town, place to place but the backpack is transported on vehicle tops, the design and fabric you see on this backpack is keeping in mind that user. The fabric used itself is rugged and heavy because you put it under tough situations, on vehicle tops, bus stations and airports.
The back also comes with a heavy frame at the back to keep the structure of the backpack.

From the points you have added, I believe you are looking for a backpack to go altitudes, carrying your backpack on your own, mountain trekking and I am sorry to say that this backpack has been wrongly guided to you.

If you can let me know your usage, I would be glad to recommend you the right backpack in exchange for this backpack. I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.

Sportively,
Sandeep NAIR,
Passionate Trekker.

Used for 1 week or less
1. The product page has “Forclaz 50” logo however the same is not in the product itself.

2. Though the bag is 50L but does not seem when it comes to actually putting my clothes in.

3 Overall quality of the bag is good/sturdy.
Perfect Buy for BackPackers
Used for 1 week or less
I am a habitual backpacker and my travels are often unplanned and often at the spur of the moment. Before Decathlon I used to get customized rucksacks tailor-made, but since I have been introduced to Quechua and Decathlon I never have to look elsewhere. My new acquisiton Quechue Escape 50 Rucksack is a perfect buy for me since I can now avoid carrying extra bags for cameras and other items. There is ample space for everything and more. The design allows to place everything securely unlike most top-opening bags. My RuckSack now is always ready for my travellogues.
