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. We then empty the balls into a graduated container to measure the equivalent volume in litres within a few percentage points. The net weight is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
The Easyfit system
This patented system enables your bag to be adjusted on your back, in one movement, intuitively, to better adapt to your body: for maximum comfort.
How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Carry heavy gear (tent, stove, food) closest to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet can be placed under the flap; the tent goes under the bag if it doesn't fit inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. In the pockets, spread out the small equipment you use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc). If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
How to adjust your Forclaz EasyFit backpack?
FIRST, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BAG ON. PLACE THE BELT ON THE HIPS (it should cover your pelvic bones) and TIGHTEN IT. Then PULL THE EasyFit TOGGLES; the strap block will go round your shoulders. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.
Tests carried out by our Research and Development department on the effectiveness of EasyFit system
User-friendly concept: actual adjustment time 2-3 times shorter with the EasyFit backpack; and number of times you have to go back = 0 for the EasyFit bag. The EasyFit system does not affect the quality of the adjustments when compared with a standard adjustment system: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable in the 4% Friedman statistical test; users also observed 6 times more good adjustments.
10-year warranty conditions
The warranty covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty is only valid with the product and sales receipt. If the product is under warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial warranty does not affect any statutory rights that are applicable in the country of purchase.
Decathlon, together with Forclaz, are committed to displaying the environmental information on the impact of the entire life cycle of their hiking backpacks. This work follows an experiment that began in July 2011 with the French Ministry of Ecology. The scores ranging from A to E were awarded based on a comparison between Quechua backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale
We test the bag's resistance to abrasion, wear, its colour fastness under UV rays, after washing and its waterproofing in the laboratory and in the field. Then a mannequin is used to simulate the ageing of the backpack filled with weights over a number of years by reproducing fast walking actions, over thousands of cycles, to check the resistance of assemblies. The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips... ) are also tested separately to guarantee these bags for 10 years.
If you are tall, check that the backpack fits you
Do not bleach
Do not tumble dry

All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
