A perfect backpack for the city

I use the backpack for urban everyday. I carry books, documents and stationery as well as a laptop every day. It is both sporty and elegant. It has many pockets - both for a wallet and for handkerchiefs, for headphones, etc., so it can also be used as a handbag, it even looks elegant, it withstands a lot of weight, it is strong, it collects a lot, and at the same time it looks compact. Very comfortable straps, you don't feel the weight of the bag! I have replaced many backpacks and other kinds of huge bags but they break under the weight, this one holds up. For me, perfect for the city, as well as a schoolgirl, not so much for the mountains, but why not.

Ideal for small quantities

Great for school, work, or even a short flight. Very light and comfortable to carry. But not designed for a lot of belongings.

Hiking backpack, 16 liter black

I bought it last summer, unfortunately one of the ladder bars broke when I adjusted the strap (after 8 months of use). They replaced it with a new one, but the material of the bag and the pulls also changed, I like last year's version better, the material is nicer and it seemed more durable. Anyway, the bag has great, practical pockets, although when I pack the extra pockets, it is sometimes difficult to pack well in the interior due to the bumps. Sometimes, the multi-step opening with the snap, buckle, and then zipper is a bit fiddly.

Excellent backpack

I love it, it is very comfortable to wear and has capacity for a weekend getaway

Great backpack!

Light, even full! Several dividers, very spacious and very comfortable to use. It doesn't weigh anything on your back even when full!!! Incredible!

I love it for hiking and work

I have used it to go hiking and I really liked it, but in the end I use it every day to work and it is the perfect backpack. With the compartments it has, it is ideal for keeping documents organized and easy to transport even when carrying it loaded. When you enter a client, you hold it by the handles as if it were a briefcase.

A lower shoulder strap is reversed due to a hasty and poorly executed seam. Greater care and control of the stitching would be needed.

Our commitment to consume less water with this product

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 dyeing in the mass, by integrating the colour pigments from the manufacture of the yarn (black colour, reference: 8649501).


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: Inch10 to 20 L rain coverInch, which can be viewed on our website, item reference 8772113.

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 litres.The capacity of the main volume of this bag is 16L. We also measured the volume with the 2 external side water bottle pockets, whereby its total capacity increases to 17L.

Developed thanks to your feedback, tested with hikers

This bag was designed thanks to all the customer feedback and hikers' observations.Indeed, the idea is to offer a multi-purpose backpack that you can use during your walks, hikes and also during all your everyday journeys. This bag offers you two different and comfortable carrying modes, i.e. on the back or in the hand, thanks to its two large ergonomic handles.

How to adjust your backpack?

1 - Loosen the shoulder straps2 - Put the loaded bag on your back, and make sure it is well balanced3 - Tighten the shoulder straps4 - Walk a few metres and lightly swing the bag on your back5 - Adjust the straps one last time

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 (sun cream, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets. The water bottle will be put in one of the outside pockets provided for this purpose or inside in the main compartment.

Tested for optimum durability and strength

We carry out several laboratory tests to validate the bag's components: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips. For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour fastness 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, Reunion Island, etc. We go to as many different places as possible, in all weather conditions. Great conditions for discussion, which is precious to gain your feedback and plan ahead for new products!

Storage instructions

Store your backpack in a dry place.
