    Such great quality
    Perfect size, great support Lack of pocket inside big compartment

    I absolutely love products by quechua! They are such good quality for the price!

    I bought this to go hike Snowdonia. I was able to fit waterproofs, a couple more layers, lots of bottles of water, snacks, a small first aid kit and a few other items. The chest and waist strap made it so much easier and 'lighter' to carry.

    Absolutely loved it! Would definitely recommend!

    Just as expected
    Lightweight, comfortable straps for running Could use a divider to separate more items

    I was looking for lightweight with straps to hold it to the body whilst running and cycling and it does that, would love for a divider in the bag to split my gear up but that is just personal preference.

Care instructions
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.
Storage Tips
Store your bag in a dry place.
Restricted use
Not waterproof; protect your belongings in case of rain.

Backpack technical tests.
We carry out laboratory tests to validate our components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips ... Example, for a fabric: abrasion resistance, tear strength, colour fastness under UV, washing, waterproofing ... Then a test on the finished product that replicates accelerated stresses on the bag over the years to check the durability of its assemblies: it's placed, filled with weights, on a dummy which imitates the movements of rapid walking over thousands of cycles.
10-year guarantee, technical partnership
The heavy stitching research and development department, Quechua's partner for research and validation of its components and assemblies, has conducted tests simulating the ageing of backpacks. These tests focus on the components, seams and the finished product. Their results allow Quechua to guarantee the bags tested for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the receipt.
10-year guarantee, conditions
The guarantee covers defects to the backpack, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal use conditions. This special 10-year guarantee will be honoured only on presentation of the product and receipt. If the product is under guarantee, it will be repaired or replaced free of charge. This commercial guarantee does not exclude the legal guarantees applicable according to country and/or State.
How is the volume of bags measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised method: we use small balls to fill the main compartment as well as each pocket. Then we empty the balls into a graduated container, which then gives us the equivalent volume in litres, with a tolerance of a few %. The empty weight shown is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
How to adjust my backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, waistband, load adjusters). PUT THE BAG ON. For bags of 50 l or more, PLACE THE BELT ON THE HIPS (it must accommodate the iliac bones of the pelvis) and TIGHTEN IT. For smaller volumes, it goes around the waist. TIGHTEN THE SHOULDER STRAPS. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTERS to suit.
How to fill my backpack?
Place your bedding at the bottom. Nearest your back, place the heavy items (tent, stove, food). Clothes are then arranged around them. The ground sheet can be placed under the flap; the tent can go under the bag if there's no room inside. Keep waterproof jacket and fleece within easy reach. The day's "small" items can be placed in the pockets (sun lotion, map, sunglasses...). The water bladder can be placed in the pocket generally provided along the back.
