    Overall confort/low quality manufactury
    Overall confort Low/average materials manufactury

    Bought this backpack for my trip to central America. The fitting system works well,a lot of pockets and zips. I didn't use it until the night before my flight to pack up my stuff: I found out that in some points , near the central zip, in the side pockets and the main cap, the seams are not well made, as the were about to rip off. I wonder when this is going to happen!I found out this too late,now I am on my trip.

    Brand's answer :

    Thanks for your feedback on the Quechua Easyfit 60ltr backpack. It's a shame to hear you have had troubles with the quality of the product. I will pass on your comments to the product manager of the backpack. Upon your return, please drop back into your local store where we can find a suitable solution for you. I hope this doesn't affect your travels.

    Quality product
    Easily adjustable sack with great features. None

    I bought this for my son (13) to do his first expedition hike with scouts. He got all of his kit for two days with room to spare. The built in raincover meant that everything stayed dry despite a downpour.
    The sack seems well made and should hopefully last him throughout to Explorers and beyond.

Tips

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.

Features

Backpack technical tests.
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, including: fabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips,etc. Fabrics are tested for:resistance to wear, 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 backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
EasyFit effectiveness tests are carried out by our Research and Development teams
User-friendly design: adjustment time is 2.3 times shorter with EasyFit backpacks With the EasyFit system, you'll never have to backtrack. Plus, the EasyFit system does not affect the quality of the adjustments when compared with a standard adjustment system: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable on a 4% Friedman statistical test; users also noted better adjustments 6 times more often.
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. Then we empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres, with a margin of a few %. The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
How to adjust your Forclaz EasyFit backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. PLACE THE BELT ON YOUR HIPS (it should cover your pelvic bones) and TIGHTEN. Then PULL THE EasyFit TOGGLE, the strap tank goes around your shoulders. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.
Environmental measurements
Oxylane, together with Quechua, has decided to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. 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 to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. The ground sheet can 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.
The Easyfit system
This patented system allows you to adjust your bag while on, with just a single movement, so that it fits your body shape: for maximum comfort.
