    Forclaz60

    Great value pack. Easily adjusted to sit properly against the back. Main compartment's front access makes getting at gear easy without packing/unpacking. Plenty of straps and webbing.

    Agree with previous comments about the side pockets not really extending out for additional space, and I would have liked to have seen a built in rain cover but that's a matter of personal opinion. All in all a fantastically priced multi day pack.

    Great backpack

    Bought it in order to take a band-saw bc f its cost and I thought "well.. wcs.. it will do its job"
    Must admit, I was surprised. Carried 18 kg in it without even notice. After the flight I was more surprised to see how the fabric stayed, not even a little mark of the use. Since then trekked few times, one in the Israel National Trail - more than 900 km, almost 2 months of trekking - a great job!

    Good size, nice colour, light too

    Just could do with a few more pockets / sections for smaller items on outside perhaps.

Tips

Care instructions
To ensure fabrics maintain their properties (particularly the waterproofing), we do not recommend washing them in the washing machine, tumble drying them, dry-cleaning them or using bleach. 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 backpack in a dry place.
Restricted use
Not waterproof; protect your belongings in case of rain.

Features

How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Carry heavy gear (tent, stove, food) closest to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should be placed under the flap and the tent beneath the pack if there is no space inside. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
Adjusting your backpack height?
Set the bag for the height you think will be correct and then adjust it (cf. "Adjusting your backpack"). With the belt on your pelvis, put the straps around the front part of your shoulders and the load adjuster straps (which are sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45° (they should never be horizontal or vertical). When trying it on, if the back seems too short or too long, readjust and try again until you are satisfied.
How to adjust your backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps, belt straps, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more, PLACE THE HIP BELT CORRECTLY (it should sit over the pelvis) and TIGHTEN IT. For smaller backpacks, the hip belt should be placed around the waist. TIGHTEN THE SHOULDER STRAPS. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD BOOSTERS to your liking.
Environmental measurements
Decathlon has chosen to inform you about the environmental impact of trekking backpack products for the duration of their life cycle. This work follows an experiment that began in July 2011 with the French Ministry of Ecology. Scores ranging from A to E were awarded based on comparisons between Quechua's backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale
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 which provides the equivalent volume in litres with a tolerance ranging a couple of %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
10-year guarantee, conditions
The warranty covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty will only be granted if the product and sales receipt is shown. 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.
