We conduct laboratory tests to validate the components:fabrics, buckles, straps, foam padding, zips, etc. For example, for a fabric:resistance to abrasion & tearing, colour fastness in UV light, resistance to washing, waterproofing, etc. Then a test is conducted on the finished product replicating the forces on the backpack over a number of years to check the strength of the assemblies.The backpack is filled with weights & placed on a mannequin that replicates thousands of fast walking movements
Quechua has conducted tests to simulate the ageing of its backpacks. These tests are conducted on the components, seams and finished product. Quechua and Decathlon use the results to guarantee the tested bags for a period of 10 years, starting from the date of purchase indicated on the receipt.
Our team of designers is based at the foot of the Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop beautiful, simple and technically advanced products. We then test them ruthlessly in the field, because we believe that the only way to continually improve is to conduct tests in the real-life conditions that you will experience.
