    shape, rain cover a bit flimsy

    I'm trying to lighten my load when walking when the weather suits, so I thought I'd try this.
    It takes a 3L bladder ok. and has a surprising amount of space. The tapering at the top give me more freedom of arm movement and is reasonably comfortable fully loaded. Built in rain cover that fits with press studs is the best I've ever seen.
    The back vertical zip opens an expandable pouch which is very useful.
    My only down side are things like the shoulder straps are a bit flimsy, let's see how it lasts.

    Cracking value trail pack

    Bought this for a week's hiking in the French Alps and was delighted with it. Great value with raincover included, emergency whistle built into sternum strap fastening, hydration system and perfect capacity for day hikes in decent weather (fits light raingear/windbreaker, extra layers, food and extra water, maps, sunscreen, hat etc).

    purchase confirmed
    Size, features, comfort, fit. No rigidity.

    I bought this little rucksack for doing the 3 peak challenge recently as I needed a smaller pack with lots all the features of my bigger rucksack. This was one of the only ones I found that ticked all my boxes. It did the job great. Just big enough for the essentials of a fast Nevis ascent, and small enough to be light and compact. It hugs your back well so doesn't bounce about too much when you're moving fast over rough terrain.
    It's only drawback was that there's no frame, and so it tends to lie in a heap when you take it off, but that's not that big a deal.
    Overall I'm very pleased with it and I'm looking forward to using it again.

Laboratory 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 guarantee
The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty will only be granted upon presentation of the receipt and the product, if the product is covered by warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged, free of charge. This commercial warranty does not exclude applicable legal warranties dependent on the country and/or State.
Usage tests
QUECHUA has completed tests simulating ageing of the backpack. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. The results enable Quechua and DECATHLON to guarantee these tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date on the till receipt.
Environmental measurements
Oxylane and Quechua have decided to inform you on the environmental impact of their hiking backpack products across their entire lifecycle. This work resulted from an experiment completed in July 2011 alongside 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
