"Everyday" backpack

A very practical backpack with many pockets, the inside of which is like a "bottomless belly". A lot of things can be packed into its huge front compartment. Thanks to its many pockets, things can be well selected, they are easier to find and organize. For "everyday" use, it has worked very well for me, because I can not only comfortably place my many things in it, but I can also pack the various products I bought in the meantime. The only downside is that it doesn't come with a rain cover.

Best travel backpack I've ever owned. We travel, with and without children, far and near, only with the one backpack and a crossbody for wallet and passport. Everything fits in here, it is comfortable enough for short walks. The advantages are the stretchy outer pockets, which are not only useful for drinking bottles, because even a wet shirt or flip-flops will not fall out. The main compartment can be opened completely, ideal for organizing the packing cubes! Secret compartment for passport etc, you can fold the Zijper inward and you won't see anything. We have now been away for 3x 4 weeks with just this backpack and I am becoming increasingly happy with the layout. You can travel the world with it!

I tried carrying it on site and found it easy to carry. The capacity is large. The black color is stain-resistant and easy to use.

Great backpack… but it has some flies

The backpack fits well on the back Lots of useful pockets The minus is the side pockets for bottles ... without taking the backpack off, the bottles are stupidly taken out Overall a nice backpack for a decent price Time will tell about the quality of the material

The best backpack

Definitely the best organized backpack in this price range. It may be too big for work, but it also depends on your needs, because, for example, shopping on the way can be packed into it without any problems and everything will fit. Really worth.

15 pockets and 3 compartments for keeping your belongings organised

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 40 L rain cover”, which can be viewed on our website, item reference 8734213.

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 32L. We also measured the volume with the 2 exterior side water bottle pockets, whereby its total capacity increases to 35L.

Tested for optimal durability

To guarantee the durability of the bag, laboratory tests are conducted on the components and assemblies to replicate the ageing of the rucksack.For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, the colour 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 belt2 - Put the bag on3 - Buckle the chest strap and adjust its height and width4 - Tighten the shoulder straps (from top to bottom)5 - Buckle and adjust the waist belt6 - Adjust it to your likingIt's all good!

How to fill your backpack?

Place the heavy items, e.g. laptop, picnic, 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 rucksack has been tested and improved by hikers in different conditions.
