Backpack technical tests
Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, including: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zippers.. Example for a fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, color-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over several years, to assess the strength of the assembly: The backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
The guarantee covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. This commercial warranty does not exclude applicable legal warranties dependent on the country and/or State.
QUECHUA has completed tests simulating aging of the backpack. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. The results enable Quechua and DECATHLON to guarantee these tested bags for 10 years from the purchase date on the till receipt.
Quechua has decided to inform you on the environmental impact of their hiking backpack products across their entire lifecycle. This work resulted from an experiment completed in July 2011 alongside the French Ministry of the Environment. Scores ranging from A to E were awarded based on comparisons between Quechua's backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale
All our backpacks are field tested by users who represent the target market in conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team the product manager up with people who are unaffiliated with Quechua, to test, improve and validate our products.
Outer fabric: 100% PU-coated PA; Lining: 100% PU-coated PA; filling: 100% polyethylene foam.
Not suitable for mountaineering.
Store your bag in a dry place.
To ensure fabrics maintain their properties (particularly the waterproofing), we do not recommend washing them in the washing machine, tumble drying them, dry-cleaning them or using bleach. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush if needed. After a few years of use, you should renew the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.
