We have reduced environmental impact by dyeing the thread before weaving it
OUR COMMITMENT TO CONSUME LESS WATER WITH THIS PRODUCT
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 bulk dyeing method, by integrating the colour pigments from the manufacture of the yarn (dark grey colour, reference: 8649496).
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.The capacity of the main volume of this bag is 16L.
We also measured the volume with the 2 exterior side water bottle pockets, whereby its total capacity increases to 17L

Tested for optimum durability and strength
To guarantee the durability of the bag, laboratory tests are conducted on the components and assemblies to replicate the ageing of the backpack.
For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, the colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and the waterproofing.
We use these tests to guarantee the bags for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase on the receipt.

TESTS AND WARRANTY
It’s in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc, that our design team conceives, designs and creates Quechua products.
We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. This backpack has been tested and improved by hikers in different climatic conditions and different environments.
This bag was designed with the help of many customer reviews as well as the comments of hikers. It has been tested and approved by a panel of about 100 hikers hiking in the Haute-Savoie region.
In order to fulfil your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the countryside.
Our teams, as well as a panel of testers (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers) test the products throughout their development right up until they are marketed.
