Travel pack

I bought this pack for travel. It’s just small enough to count as a personal item on some airlines (and easily carry-on) and fits my two-week kit. Looks nice enough and is good to carry (although the waist strap coup be better and there could be a way to store the strap).

The best everyday cary backpack

My video review is on youtube search : NH 500 ESCAPE 32 L Quechua decathlon - The best budget EDC backpack 2022 Unlike other people , i used this bag mainly as an everyday carry for my camera , drone , laptop etc. Has decent space , ,many compartment to organize the various items. Well worth it considering the price , quality and features Check out my video review and YouTube ,and if you find it useful , do consider to leave a SUB and LIKE to support my content.

a good pack but...

Like every pack with internal pockets the pockets cannot be closed so when the pack is slung around at airports, on buses, or topples over on a walk your kits goes everywhere. Why can't manufacturers make a pack with secure internal pockets?

good school bag for my elder son

this is extremely useful for my elder son high school's school bag.

Good product

Looking at the size and capacity, a trolley or wheels should have been provided with the bag. It is difficult to carry on shoulder when fully loaded

Our commitment to consume less water

We have improved this product with an eco-design approach. Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. We dye every other thread to reduce water consumption and water pollution. To reduce our impact on the environment, we choose the method of bulk dyeing, by integrating the color pigments from the manufacture of the yarn (references: black 8649351, khaki 8649348).

Your comfort above all

To take full advantage, we devote particular attention to designing bags that are comfortable: The back, shoulder straps, and handle have a thick construction composed of different types of foam padding covered with a 3D mesh to improve ventilation and drying.- Back: 5 pads, composed of 2 types of 0.6"-thick foam (PE - PU).- Shoulder straps: composed of 2 types of 0.6"-thick foam (EVA - PU). The chest strap has cushioning, and its height and width are adjustable. The width of the waist belt can be adjusted.

15 pockets and 3 compartments for keeping your belongings organized

3 compartments and numerous pockets (15) to keep your belongings separate and well-organized. 1 compartment with a secure zipper, including 2 pockets for a 17" laptop and 15" tablet, which are raised to avoid shocks. 7 zipped pockets, 1 hidden zipped pocket, 1 x 6.8" phone pocket (left shoulder strap). 2 stretch water bottle holders with good coverage. 1 organizer and 1 key ring. 1 cable outlet and 1 battery pocket. 1 torch holder 1 strap to connect to a suitcase


The components of the bag are water-repellent so that you can temporarily continue walking/hiking in light rain. Caution: this backpack is not watertight/waterproof and it does not have a rain cover. If you want to continue walking/hiking in the rain and protect your belongings, we recommend the following model: "20 to 35 L rain cover", which can be viewed on our website, item reference 8303438.

Outer dimensions

Height: 19.7" | Width: 11" | Thickness: 9.8". This bag can be used as hand luggage when traveling by air because its dimensions comply with airline requirements (IATA), as long as it is not over-packed. We recommend that you contact your airline for details of the size and weight restrictions on cabin baggage.

Tested for optimum durability and strength

To guarantee the durability of the bag, laboratory tests are conducted on the components and assemblies to replicate the aging of the backpack. For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, the color fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and the waterproofing. We use these tests to guarantee the bags for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase on the receipt.

How to adjust your backpack

1 - Loosen all the straps, shoulder straps, waist belt, and chest belt 2 - Put the bag on 3 - Buckle the chest strap and adjust its height and width 4 - Tighten the shoulder straps (from top to bottom) 5 - Buckle and adjust the waist belt 6 - Adjust it to your liking It's all good!

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 fill your backpack

Place the heavy items, e.g. laptop, picnic lunch, etc., in the bottom and in the spaces provided. Pack your clothes around these items. Put the small belongings that you will use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc.) in the pockets. Put the water bottle(s) in the outer pockets on the sides that are made for this purpose.



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. This backpack has been tested and improved by hikers in different climatic conditions and different environments.

Storage instructions

Store your backpack in a dry place.
