Tests en laboratoireWalking simulation

OUR LABORATORY TESTS

Laboratory tests are run to validate the components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zippers…

Example for a fabric: resistance to abrasion, tearing, water resistance…

A test on a finished product which recreates, in accelerated mode, the backpack solicitation over the years in order to control assembly resistance. We fill the backpack with weights on a model that recreates the movement of brisk walking, for thousands of cycles.

OUR REAL-CONDITION TESTS IN THE MOUNTAINS

The design team works with hikers not associated with Quechua to test, push forward and validate the backpacks.

Resistance

TO FRICTION FOR DURABLE USE FOR YEARS.

10 YEAR WARRANTY, TECHNICAL PARTNERSHIP

The heavy stitching research and development department —partner of Quechua for the research and validation of components and assembling —conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. These tests were for the component, the stitches and the finished product. Their results allow Quechua to ensure tested backpacks for 10 years starting at the purchase date written on the receipt.

Matthieu

Matthieu
Product engineer

As an engineer I ensure the link between design and production.
First, I receive the brief from the product manager stating the functionalities and requirement of the future backpack. Depending of the state of design I work with the product manager, the designer, the model maker, the production manager and the production factory.

In order to ensure the resistance of backpacks we first test the components.
Associated with the production standards, I obtain the definitive resistance of the product.
Then, I run tests in the lab on the finished products, simulating the repeated movement during hiking, and then in the mountains.

 

LIGHTWEIGHT

EACH COMPONENT IS DESIGNED TO OPTIMISE WEIGHT IN OUR BACKPACKS

WEIGHT DETAILS

Hikers have to carry all of their equipment during physical effort. That’s why we design our products so that they are lighter and lighter and ensure greater freedom of movement.
