Made for Our design teams, all trekking enthusiasts, developed this bag especially for men travelling in the mountains for several days and carrying 12 to 15 kilos. A backpack with many accessories for intermediate hikers who need to carry 12 to 15 kg for 5 to 10 days.
We conduct lab tests to validate the following components: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc. For example, for a fabric: resistance to abrasion, tearing, colour-fastness under 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 assembly: the pack is filled with weights and placed on a dummy that replicates thousands of cycles of a fast walking motion.
10-year technical partnership warranty
The Strenfit component brand, Forclaz's partner for researching and validating its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. These tests were conducted on the components, the seams and the finished product. The results of these tests are used by Quechua and Strenfit to guarantee the bags for 10 years from the purchase date shown on the receipt.
How to pack a backpack?
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 backpack 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.). Hydration packs should be placed in their special compartment along the back.
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 get the equivalent volume in litres. The measurement is accurate to within a few percentage points.
The net weight is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall rating from A to E is provided to help you easily identify the more eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.)
Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental information of its products.

Why are our rain covers coloured grey?
The grey colour is neutral and therefore uses less dye.
The component is made of BITON: as a result, the environmental impact of the MT700 70L is 10% less than the former model: symbium access.
By using dope-dye for the lining materials, much less water is consumed than a more brightly coloured fabric.
It is by taking small measures of this kind that Forclaz is demonstrating its commitment to improve the environmental impact of its products.
