Technical information


We have improved this product with an eco-design approach.
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. We dye every other thread to reduce water consumption and water pollution.
To reduce our impact on the environment, we choose the method of dyeing in the mass, by integrating the colour pigments from the manufacture of the yarn (black colour, reference:8649501).

Developed thanks to your feedback, tested with hikers

This bag was designed thanks to all the customer feedback and hikers' observations.
Indeed, the idea is to offer a multi-purpose backpack that you can use during your walks, hikes and also during all your everyday journeys.
This bag offers you two different and comfortable carrying modes, i.e. on the back or in the hand, thanks to its two large ergonomic handles.

How to adjust your backpack?

1 - Loosen the shoulder straps
2 - Put the loaded bag on your back, and make sure it is well balanced
3 - Tighten the shoulder straps
4 - Walk a few metres and lightly swing the bag on your back
5 - Adjust the straps one last time

How to fill your backpack?

Put your heavy items at the bottom. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece within arm’s reach. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets.
The water bottle will be put in one of the outside pockets provided for this purpose or inside in the main compartment.

How is volume measured?

The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard 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.

Tested for optimum durability and strength

We carry out several laboratory tests to validate the bag's components: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips. For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and waterproofing. We also conduct tests to check the resistance of assembly using a dummy that reproduces the movements of a hiker to replicate several years of wear and tear on the bag.

Great conditions for discussion, which is precious to gain your feedback and plan ahead for new products!
