    Forclaz Rucksack 40L
    Durability, Adaptability & Raincover Would have been nice to be able to remove hip belt

    Used for 30 days hiking/climbing as my day bag in the Himalaya's in all weather conditions and this rucksack took a lot of punishment. There was no fraying of material, or broken zips. For the price it will be hard to match. My only negative would be that it's a bit tricky to fit a full 2L bladder in but with patience it will go.

    Small in size
    Love the fact that it doesn't touch your back Too small in size & bump takes away room

    The backpack is for a few days only. Good material and everything but the shoulder pads could be bigger.

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.

Backpack technical tests.
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, includingfabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips,etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness in 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.
10-year technical partnership guarantee
The heavy stitching research and development department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
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.
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 backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps, belt, 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 ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.
Adjusting your backpack height?
Set the bag for the height you think will be correct and then adjust it (see. "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 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. 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.
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is voluntarily committed to visually displaying environmental information.
