Technical Information

10-year warranty
Our Quechua hiking backpacks are guaranteed for 10 years. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your country walks. Because the products we like the most are those with a story behind them that is still continuing! The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use.
How is volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised 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.
How to adjust my backpack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 – Tighten the shoulder straps. 4 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
How to pack my backpack?
Place your heavier items at the bottom. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back. Place your water bottle in the external pockets provided specifically for this.
Laboratory Testing
We conduct lab tests to validate the following elements of the backpack: fabrics, buckles, straps, zips... For example, for fabrics, we test its resistance against wear and tear, how it holds its colours in sunlight and washing, its waterproofing... We also carry out tests to control the resistance of assemblies by reproducing the solicitations supported by a backpack over the years, but accelerated. These tests consist of filling the backpack with weights on a mannequin
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The product's environmental footprint is calculated over its entire lifespan using various indicators. A general score from A to E is provided in order to easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental data of its products. Web: sustainability.decathlon.com Explanatory video: https://youtu.be/8t63KkRwn_8

Product test
It is in France, at the foot of the Mont Blanc, that our design team imagined, thought up and designed the Quechua products. We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. Brittany, Corsica... We headed out onto as many different terrains as possible, in all weather conditions. These moments involve a lot of discussions. We use this to get your feedback and prepare our future collections!

Stockage tips
Store the backpack in a dry place.

Verdict still out on Straps...
Used for 1 week or less
The good: I really like the back, it keeps its shape and enables breathability. The bag is cute and I love the purpler colour. Good size for a light jacket, water bottle, and lunch on a day day hike. I also wouldn't mind if it was 12L or 13L in capacity...

The bad: Not sure if this is a problem for others but the straps rub against my skin ( i was wearing a tank top) and it's painful.
Great Backpack
Used for 1 week or less
I am a college student striving to go as paperless as possible for the environment. My iPad Pro 10.5 inch fits perfectly into the “laptop sleeve” (I think it’s intended as a holder for hydration system? But that’s not what I’m using it for) and the rest of my essentials-eating utensils, reusable shopping bag, cords, an A5 folder and notebook, planner, medications, water bottle, pens and pencils, wallet, phone, and umbrella-all fit into the main compartment nicely. I recommend that you choose a smaller water bottle if you’re using this backpack’s bottle holder as intended. Longer bottles really do stick out. Other than that I have no gripes. Excellent choice for people who like to travel light.
That being said, I do have my trusty Jansport Hatchet for the majority of days when I need to carry more stuff. It’s the best 10L backpack you can get, much better than the under-padded Arpenaz and, in my opinion, worth every penny if you use it often and for extended periods of time.
Just perfect

Super functional and good looking backpack. Bought another one for a present and was a total success!!-
