This backpack, which I bought in the women's version, gray in colour, because black for a backpack really isn't, seems to have been designed for via ferratas / mountaineering 7 challenging scrambling routes etc. (including a nice helmet holder). I've used it for a year and in my opinion it has a few things that weren't designed well: The side pockets are too small and don't hold two water bottles well, not even half a liter. The pockets should be a little deeper so as to hold two water bottles well. The main thing missing and which would make it a perfect backpack for long alpine crossings are 2 flask holders in the shoulder straps. Useless things supplied with the backpack: - the water bag which is questionable and which many (me) don't use. - the backpack cover which, like everyone else, is not useful for saving from a downpour. In conclusion, my opinion is unfortunately insufficient. It's a shame because with two flask holders, two slightly larger side pockets and a padding system on the back, they would make it a perfect backpack for long journeys.


Comfortable to wear

I appreciated the water bladder and rain cover included in the price. It is a backpack for traveling super light. With a full backpack, closing the zip is made difficult by the lightness of the fabric which stretches a lot. Will last? The pockets on the belt are very useful

I use the bag in marathon skating and marathon running, it is simply great, the only bad thing is that the plastic sleeve did not pass through the water bag, can you help me with this, what should I do?

Super useful for walking in the countryside! It is also very convenient and functional for city wandering.

Overall, the backpack is nice, but it is only suitable for spring, summer, the beginning of autumn and very light hiking, as it is much colder, I do not recommend it in winter at all, everything will freeze in there

Some aspects are missing that were on the old bag of the same type: - water bag valve very difficult to put in and take out of the bag because the pass is too narrow. - missing a hook at the bottom of the bag straps to prevent the valve from wandering everywhere (2 loops insufficient) - carrying comfort the bag moves a little while running but well adjusted it remains reasonable

10-year guarantee

The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty will only be granted upon presentation of the receipt and the product, and if the product is covered by warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged, free of charge. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country/state of purchase.


We take care over abrasion resistance to make your bag durable. The heavy clothing R&D department, a Quechua partner for the research and validation of its components and assemblies, performs tests (on components, seams and the finished product) simulating the ageing of backpacks. Their results allow us to guarantee the bags tested for 10 years from the purchase date shown on the receipt.


Because when you hike, you must wear your equipment, we think about lightness. Here at Quechua, we design our products in such a way that they are always lighter and guarantee great freedom of movement.

Product design: our expertise

Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie. This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts. A great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.

How to care for and wash a rucksack?

We recommend hand-washing your rucksack. Use soapy, lukewarm water, possibly with a brush, focusing on the areas in contact with the body (shoulder straps, back, waist belt), where you have perspired. This is the best way for the fabric properties to be maintained, in particular the waterproofness. Then rinse well with lukewarm water, dry in a dry place away from direct sunlight (no radiator). Store in a dry place.

How do i adjust my backpack?

1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - As this bag is small in volume, put the belt around the waist and tighten it. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed

Hand luggage

When you are travelling by plane, the authorised hand luggage size is 55x35x25cm3 maximum (warning, this can vary depending on the airline). This backpack can therefore be used as cabin baggage

Product testing

To meet your requirements, Quechua products are tested in the mountains in conditions you will 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.

Storage instructions

Store in a dark, dry, well-ventilated place.
