Practical backpack for every trip

Backpack with high wearing comfort and practical layout. The side pockets for 2 size drinking bottles in particular are very user-friendly and do not take up any space from the available 20l capacity.

Very well designed, very comfortable. The straps can be a little itchy if you're wearing a tank top, but that's almost the only downside to this very well-designed bag.

Excellent backpack useful for everything.

I use it to go on photo shoots because it is very useful for carrying my camera, computer, tripod, etc.

abrasive back

The fabric in contact with the back is abrasive: it damages clothes, causes T-shirts to ride up and irritates the skin. If it works well with a windbreaker or other "slippery" clothing, it is not suitable for use with cotton T-shirts, sweaters or any other everyday fabric.

Impure color

Not as well designed as the previous one.

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 liters.

How to adjust your backpack

1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, belt, load adjuster straps)2 - Put on the backpack3 - Tighten the shoulder straps4 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed

How to fill your backpack

Put your heavy items at the bottom. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece within arm’s reach. Place small items for daily use (sunblock, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets. The water bladder will be placed in the compartment provided along the back, and the water bottle in the outer water bottle holder pockets provided for this purpose.

Developed based on your feedback, tested with hikers

This bag was designed based on all the customer feedback and hikers' observations.Indeed, the idea is to separate and keep your picnic cool when hiking, while separating it from other belongings (clothing, wallet, telephone, etc.).This bag has been tested by many hikers and has enabled us to test its functions and make some improvements.

Laboratory tested

We carry out several laboratory tests to validate the bag's components: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zippers. For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, colorfastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and waterproofing. We also conduct tests to check the resistance of assembly using a dummy that reproduces the movements of a hiker to replicate several years of wear and tear on the bag.

Product testing

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. Brittany, Corsica, Réunion Island, Nice, etc. This backpack has been tested and improved by hikers in Nice and on Réunion Island in different weather conditions.

Storage instructions

Store your backpack in a dry place.
