    Excellent day sack

    I like many things about this bag. Side and lid pockets accessible when wearing (I have long arms!). Twin waist pockets ideal for my GPS device and pocket spyglass / compass etc. Outside pocket for sitting mat (I invariably back my bag and only remember the mat when stood up).

    I returned previous bag due to abnormal wear and tear and I noticed on receiving this bag that, contra to the former one, it contains a lightweight metal frame. This is comfortable and effective when adjusted properly, but could be uncomfortable if poorly adjusted, in my case digging into the shoulder.

    Incidentally, I'm a man and I see no reason why this should be labelled a women's backpack, but maybe others can explain…?

    Super Rucksack!

    Toller Rucksack für kleines Geld! Im Vergleich zu Konkurrenz ist der Rucksack für 40L etwas knapper. Das Top lässt sich aber nach oben erweitern und das Volumen dadurch wieder ausgleichen.

    Die Tatsache das der Rücken stufenlos in der Länge verstellbar ist, ist ein Vorteil gegenüber so ziemlich allen Konkurrenzmodellen. Der Rucksack liegt gut am Rücken und ist bis 15 KG auch gut über länger Zeit tragbar.

    Durch den länglichen (eher alpinen) Schnitt und die Halterung für einen Eispickel auch für klassische Hochtouren geeignet.

    gute Ansätze, aber dann schwächelt es doch

    Ich habe diesen Rucksack für eine 3-Tages-Hüttentour zur Zugspitze gekauft. Zum jetzt vergleichen besitze ich noch einen 20l Forclaz Air und einen 70l Forclaz Easy Fit. Positiv finde ich den Aufbau der Gurte, die 2 Taschen am Beckengurt und die beiden seitlichen RV-Taschen. Das Belüftungssystem nimmt etwas Stauraum, ist aber die logische Konsequenz des Komforts. Insgesamt gutes Handling. Optik bewerte ich nicht, da sowas im Auge des Betrachters liegt. Ich finde ihn super. Nicht gut hingegen finde ich die beiden Haltegummis für die Stöcke. Diese komischen Haken hat doch niemals einer ordentlich getestet vorher. Nachdem ich 30 min damit gekämpft habe, habe ich sie aufgeschnitten und im Selbstbau was verändert - ähnlich wie bei den beiden Anderen. Dort habt Ihr das super gelöst. Der Eigenbau hat aber auch nicht wirklich funktioniert. Ich habe die Stöcke also immer in der Hand tragen müssen! Warum solche Experimente?!
    Schlecht ist ebenso die Qualität der gelobten seitlichen RV-Taschen. Der dünne Stoff hat jetzt schon ein Loch. Keine Ahnung wovon. Ich bin sehr sorgsam mit meinem Zeug. Der Boden mutet nicht so stabil an wie beim Easy Fit. Die Regenhülle habe ich nur mit Gewalt über den voll gepackten Rucksack bekommen, dabei ist sie leicht gerissen. 10l mehr Volumen wären gut. Schade dass dieser Rucksack erst beim Kunden reift. Ich kann ihn nur bedingt empfehlen. Bitte arbeitet daran.

Backpack technical tests
We carry out laboratory tests to validate all component parts: fabric, buckles, straps, foam and zips. For example, for fabric: resistance to wear & tear, 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, technical partnership
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 backpacks, the belt should be placed 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 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.
Environmental measures
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over the entire lifecycle of the product using different indicators. An overall rating of ABCDE is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other (t-shirts, trousers and backpacks). Decathlon is a voluntary actor in this environmental labellling process. For further information:
