    Skvělý batoh na túru

    Perfektní velikost na několikadenní túru, lehký, fajn je odvětrávání zad, vnitřní kapsa, dostatečně nastavitelné všechny popruhy, perfektní kapsy po stranách a úchyty na hole.

    Okay aber nicht optimal

    Ein optisch schöner Rucksack, gut verarbeitet und preislich sehr attraktiv. Leider mit aus meiner Sicht ein paar wesentlichen Schwachstellen. Das größte Manko sind die fehlenden seitlichen Außentaschen für Getränkeflaschen. Diese müssen im Rucksack verstaut werden, was sehr nervig ist.
    Wenn man einen schmalen Körperbau hat, ist der Rucksack nicht optimal: Selbst bei engster Gurtstellung sitzt der Rucksack nicht optimal auf der Hüfte, sondern zu tief und die Gurtenden hängen dann, wenn man sie nicht zusaammenrollt oder abschneidet, bis unter die Knie.
    Toll wiederum ist das Rückennetz, welches für eine gute Luftzirkulation sorgt.

    Poca capacidad interior

    Las varillas cóncavas, diseñadas para facilitar la ventilación de la espalda, crean una panza interior que resta mucha capacidad. Los 40 litros parecen 30. Mejoren este defecto y la compraré.

Backpack technical tests
We carry out laboratory tests to check components: 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 then 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 covered by the warranted, 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.
How to adjust your backpack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - 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 volumes, place the belt around the waist. 4 – Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 – Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near 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 the rainproof jacket and fleece in an easily accessible place. Place small items for use during the day (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.
Environmental measurements
The environmental impact of each product is calculated for the product's entire life cycle, using different indicators. A general ABCDE mark is attributed to help you identify the best environmental performance by comparing products to each other (t-shirts, rucksacks, etc). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information. For more information, visit:
