3 Types of Backpacking Adventures

3 Types of Backpacking Adventures

At Decathlon, our backpacking brand Forclaz understands that backpackers are resourceful and adaptable with their gear. Traveling across the globe for two years? Of course you can use an overstuffed 40L Quechua backpack and regular sneakers to scale a mountain in Nepal, wander the streets of Istanbul, and traverse the sands of the Sahara. But why should you have to? This basis for Forclaz's product development teams stems from the idea that you should be able to have affordable gear built for your specific adventure. Different environments provide very different experiences, thus requiring different backpacking gear. This year, Forclaz is proud to provide a product range for three different backpacking environments: mountain, travel, and desert.
