User Restrictions

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.
