Good value for money

Good value for money. To be seen in the long term but in general Decathlon products are of good quality for the price.

Just perfect

Exactly what I was looking for! The big plus: a very breathable back. The capacity is perfect for day hikes or for 2 days not too busy Very good value for money

Size "s" too tight

Always problems with the sizes - this time the size "s" is really small (I'm only 1 meter 68 and 60 kg. I imagine the "m" would have been too big. Feeling of being narrow, therefore uncomfortable - regardless of the qualities of the whole. I would have liked at this price/volume ratio more comfort of strap and back, the ventilated back is not great from this point of view. I find the comfort of quecha bags (shoulders etc) is less and less "relevant". Water-repellent is good, waterproof is better (here too it is less and less relevant), especially for a so-called "mountain" bag For the capacity, it's ok since it's the one chosen.

Special preu quality

Good moxilla for hiking/hiking 1-2 days

The backpack is amazing both in terms of practicality and visuals. A bigger hike is still waiting for us, but it suited us perfectly for smaller hikes!!

Good all-rounder

The backpack itself is great. Due to its size, it is well suited for day trips and the hip belt provides good shoulder relief and fits well. The small pockets on the hip belt are very practical for small items that you want to get to without having to take off the backpack. In my opinion, the long zipper on the side that leads to the main compartment is a bit unnecessary. In addition, people passing by can easily get to the contents and steal something. The biggest drawback in my opinion, however, is the shoulder straps, which are very tight around the neck. These are so close together on the upper back that, as already described, they rest on the neck, which I find very uncomfortable. If the shoulder straps were further apart, it would be much more comfortable to wear. This is something Decathlon might consider.

10-year guarantee

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.

Don't throw it, fix it!

Our products will join you on your mountain walks. As you progress, they age, and some parts can get worn or break.To make repairs easier, in the InchBag accessories / hiking trekkingInch, we sell tightening buckles and chest clips that are compatible with your bag. Don ftt throw away, repair !

What differences are there with the old mh500 bag?

The back of this new bag has been fully reworked for greater comfort: a tight net with frame gives you more space between your back and the bag to reduce the damp back effect. This net used for the back, called mesh, is also softer than previously. What's more, this new model comes in 2 sizes for small and large sizes. The 2 hip pockets are more spacious and stretchy and access to flask on the sides is easier.

Which size should i choose?

During several field test sessions with hikers of different sizes, we noticed that between 20 and 40 litres, the difference in comfort was mainly down to the back height of the bag. We therefore offer all our models in 2 sizes to meet these requirements. If you are taller than 170 cm, go for size L. If you are shorter than 170 cm, you will be better off with a size S.

Hydration

This bag can hold 1 litre, 2 litre or 3 litre pockets. However, although the pocket is voluminous, it will take up place that could be used for storing other belongings.The side pockets are designed for flasks of maximum 1 litre.

Why are our rain covers orange?

This is a deliberate choice as we believe it's important to stay visible in the mountains, even in fog, in case of any problem. This orange colour has the advantage of being visible from a helicopter. It's also a visible colour on the road if you use your bag when cycling.

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 bag can be used as hand luggage, so long as you don't load the top too much.

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.

How to pack my backpack?

AT THE BOTTOM of the bag, pack your sleeping material, and heavy material nearer the back. Slide your water pocket into the compartment.AT THE TOP of the bag, store your waterproof jacket and fleece within arm’s reach. In the pockets, you can put your sun cream, maps, cap and sunglasses. Cereal bars or your mobile phone can be stored in the belt pockets for quick access. The straps under the bag can also be used to attach a compact tent.

It brings together 4 themes, each with their own area and technological tools:Morphology (especially thanks to the 3D analysis)Movement sciencesThermal comfort (with its four climatic chambers)Behavioural and sensory sciences+ we describe the specific aspects of the test related to the product (e.g. shower, wind tunnel, etc.)
