Great but needs 2 improvements

For the money, this pack is great and I'm happy with it. After some use, I have only two issues: 1. The pack has a semi-rigid plastic sheet in the back panel that is not removable. This sheet should be removable. 2. The two vertical pads in the back panel do not come all the way to the bottom of the pack. The pads should extend ~3cm longer to the bottom of the semi-rigid plastic sheet. As designed, the bottom edge of the plastic sheet can dig into the lower back and be uncomfortable. I hope decathlon considers these suggestions, as I think they could likely easily be incorporated into the manufacturing process for the pack.

Great Backpack for Outdoors activities!

Have used the pack for a variety of sports, from day-hikes to snowshoeing and snowboarding. The pack is very spacious and was able to fit extra mid-layers, lunch and a helmet when needed. The straps and and hooks throughout the bag make additional carabiners and things easy to strap on. Two small things, first is the snowboard carry system, which does not feel fully stable when hooked up, as the fabric of the bag is holding the weight of the board. The second is the waterproofing, however the bag is not waterproof and does not try to be so, but it would be nice. Overall for the price, 10/10.

True blue! Ripper backpack !

Great product! Could of been a lil bit better with a few inside mesh pockets but its aSolid great backpack and bang for buck! Strong and lightweight! Great for travel when weight matters too!

Used for multipitch climbing and hiking daypack. Great for the climbing and packable day sack. Removable back foam would be nice to make an even more packable option. Also used as extra day pack for business trip as fitted nicely inside hand luggage pack. Did rub on waist at base of pack when used for 3 days on the trot as padding limited but I guess there has be some downside to such a lightweight pack.

Long lasting, strong and truly multi-use

I have it for over 3 years and today I collected the second one. Mainly it is used on my motorcycle rides, for commutes on the bike and off the bike and anytime I need to take something with me that fits. I was carrying many different items, water bladder including. It is indeed very comfortable with many ways you can set it up to fit your body like a glove. It super useful and I love it, but it has its own issues, hence only 4 stars. First: annoying thing is you cannot put it up upright on its bottom. It is angled and even if full, it won't stay up, it always falls. Even if you put it against the wall and if floor is smooth, it will slide and fall. Second: the rubber bands, those to hold excess of stipes nicely tacked together. They do the great job but .... only for a very short time. The rubber must be of pretty poor quality, as all of them simply deteriorated, even if they were not moved, within first few months of use. I found out today, it has 5 years warranty, so I guess if I kept the bloody receipt ... Third: it is not waterproof and likely because of that, my first one was supplied with a rain cover. The one I got today, has none of that. The rest is perfect and the reason I had to replace it, is a wear & tear but hey, 3.5 years of daily use?!?! It is a very good one.

I like it so much, light, strong, beautiful 😉 I’ve been using it for more than 2 years, for gym, picnic everywhere

Good bag, but the fabric...

It is very practical bag with many clever straps and solutions. Only disadvantage I see is the side fabric. The fabric is no duarble enaught, so it is often cutted during carrying skis on sides. This is very annoying.


Very good
