We have reduced environmental impact by dyeing the thread before weaving it
Our eco-design approach
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. Our commitment to consume less water and reduce our water impact with this product:
- We dye one thread in two for our inner components;
- We use mass pigmentation, adding the colour pigments when the yarn is produced for some of our outer components.
How to fill your backpack?
- In the bigger compartment, put your heavy items at the bottom. Pack your clothes around these items;
- Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece within easy reach;
- In the small compartment, distribute the small items for the day, electronic devices, map, sunscreen, glasses, etc;
- In the side pocket, place your water bottle.
How to adjust your backpack?
- Loosen the shoulder straps,
- Put the backpack on,
- Tighten the shoulder straps.
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.
Your opinion is important to us!
Thanks to your feedback, we have improved the design and concept of our backpack.
This bag has been tested by many hikers and has enabled us to test its functions and make some improvements. On this new model, we have added a double zip on the main pocket, a side pocket as well as a reinforced base to support you in the countryside or any environment.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our design team imagines, creates and designs the Quechua products at the foot of the Mont Blanc, in France.
We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. Brittany, Corsica, Reunion Island, etc. We go to as many different places as possible, in all weather conditions. Great conditions for discussion, which is precious to gain your feedback and plan ahead for new products!
To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested out in the heart of nature in the type of conditions you may encounter during your hikes.
Our teams, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers), test products throughout their development until they go to market.
