I have brought this bag and in handles near shoulder stiches got opened and that bag gets cut because of the rod which was installed in it... I have gone to decathlon to replace or changed this bag but they told me we can't do this. Only one time I have used this bag and it gets cut

Kind of iffy on this pack

I bought this pack on a recommendation. It's tougher than your average, backpacking pack. It fits me and the waist belt is long enough. I like the features, though the bottom pocket is a waste, because it's not big enough to hold a sleeping. My biggest complaint is the fact that it doesn't have a weight rating, meaning how many pounds of gear that this pack can carry without breaking. I heard somewhere that it was 40 lbs. I would be very disappointed if that in fact is the case. A 70 liter pack that can only hold 40 lbs of gear, just isn't going to cut it IMHO. I hope that isn't the case. Decathlon did not provide me a satisfactory answer.

Decent backpack for all your purposes

This is a lovely product for backpacking travel / adventure travel. Only thing i feel is uncomfortable is the waist clip of the bag. It should have been designed in much better way.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 100.0% Polyester ; Lining: 100.0% Polyester ; Yoke: 100.0% Polyamide ; Webbing: 100.0% Polypropylene ; Coating: 100.0% Polyurethane

How to fill my bag for optimal comfort?

Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear near your back (tent, camp stove, food). Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet can be placed under the flap; the tent under the bag if there's no room inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. Place small items for daily use in the pockets (sun cream, map, glasses, etc.). The water bladder can be placed in the compartment generally provided down the back.

The easyfit system

This patented system lets you adjust your backpack in a single intuitive step to fit your body shape while it is on your back: for maximum comfort.

How to adjust your bag?

To begin, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps).Then, put the bag on and PLACE THE BELT ON THE HIPS (it must cover the pelvic bones around the hips) to TIGHTEN.Finally, PULL THE Easyfit STRAPS and the strap block will go around your shoulders.Finally, just ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTERS to get the perfect fit for your back.

Easyfit effectiveness tests are carried out by our research and development teams

User-friendly design: adjustment time is 2.3 times shorter with EasyFit backpacks; with the EasyFit system, you'll never have to backtrack. Does not affect the quality of adjustment compared to a bag with standard adjustment: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable on a 4% Friedmann statistical test; users also noted better adjustments 6 times more often.

How is bag 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. We then empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres, with a tolerance of a few %.The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.

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, if the product is covered by warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged, free of charge. This sales warranty does not affect the statutory rights applicable in your country and/or State.

Weight and dimensions

The bag is 25.6” in height, 15.7” wide and 12.6” deep.It weights approximately 5.5 lbs.

Product testing

Using laboratory and field tests, we check the bag's resistance to abrasion and tearing, its colour fastness to UV light and washing, and its waterproofing.Then, the weighted backpack is placed on a dummy that simulates ageing by replicating thousands of fast walking movements, to check the durability of assemblies.The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc.) are also tested separately so that we can guarantee these bags for 10 years.

Storage instructions

Store your bag in a dry, ventilated place away from direct light.
