    Thought it would last longer

    Bought this bag for a three week trip around Asia. I love it and it has all the compartments you could wish for. Massive downside is that the metal support in the back plate pushes it's way out of the velcro meaning the bottom is not supported by the rod anymore. Result? A collapsed bottom that has been digging in the small of my back for the last week.

    straps are not comfortable
    zip openings and multiple pouches bag adjustments

    Nice product but back straps are out of shape. From day one I feel the bag is moving towards one side. May be some defect in strap alignment. Rest its a nice product

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
Not waterproof; protect your belongings in case of rain.

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 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.
This guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal use.
The Strenfit component brand, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. These tests were conducted on the components, the seams, and the finished product. 10-year guarantee, conditions
10-year guarantee, conditions
The guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal 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.
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 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.
