    Great rucksack

    Bought mainly with hiking in mind with occasional plane travel possibilities.

    It is the best rucksack I've had. It looks great and is incredibly practical with the option of unzipping the front, allowing you to organise clothes and gear much more efficiently. It is very packable, allowing me to take 2 weeks worth of clothes on a plane on one trip, to then be carried over mountains when solo camping on the next.

    It is very comfortable to wear with minimal load on the shoulders due to the hip belt and Easyfit system. The hip belt pocket is very handy too. A note on the hip belt, I wouldn't recommend wearing a chunky belt when carrying the pack over long distances, it can get quite uncomfortable.

    The numerous straps, cords and pockets on the outside of the pack allowed me to strap a tent, sleeping mat, waterproof jacket, snacks and bottles of water for extra carrying capacity.

    All in all, a fantastic rucksack which met and exceeded all of my needs. Looks great, loads great and carries great.

    Great Bag

    I bought a smaller Osprey Kestrel backpack for my day walks with my DofE groups and l don't think it is a patch on this bag. The many pockets allow you to store a multitude of items that are easy reachable. The zip make getting to the bottom of your bag easy. A great bag at a great price.

Approved by
All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
Tests
We test the resistance of the bag to abrasion, tearing, the resistance of colours to UV rays and washing and waterproofing. Tests are conducted in the field and laboratory. Then a mannequin reproduces wear on the weighted sac via fast walking movements for thousands of cycles to test the resistance of assemblages. The components (fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc.) are also tested separately. As a result we can guarantee these bags for 10 years.

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.
Restricted use
Check that the bag is suitable if you are of short stature

Features

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.
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.
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.
10-year guarantee, conditions
The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is under guarantee, 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.
