Organizers on the outside (and other improvements)

This review is influenced by my previous backpack: NH500 30L Pros - The rolltop with the 2 side zippers is a nice idea. Can be low profile, while still large possible capacity. The closing opening does not require much time (a zipper may be still faster). The top opening of the bag is held together by a piece of velcro. Through the rear zipper, I can take out and put in a 15-inch laptop (17-inch from the top only) - The hip belts have a nice pocket to store, when not used - Using the strap which secures the rolltop part, I can store some stuff on the outside of the pack: coat, t-shirt, or even a roll mat - Two months are not enough to assess the durability, however, it seems that the zippers are similar to my previous backpack, where the zipper pulls of the main compartment held up for 2-3 years each. The rolltop can delay this. And the 10 years of warranty is one of the reasons to shop at Decathlon - The side mesh pockets hold stuff securely Cons In my previous bag, all the compartments were on the outside, hence they could be easily accessed, even if the main compartment was fully packed, here I have to keep everything together, and the inside organization is not enough to help - The placement of the key/pen organizer part is awful. Objects can be caught on the pens that stick out, and it is really difficult to access the pens while the pack is loaded. Even if the pack is not loaded, this organizer part is quite difficult to access, in many cases you will need to open up the side zipper. This part MUST have been put into a smaller exterior compartment. The only reason why the current positioning makes sense is for safety reasons - does not matter who wants to access the organizers, you or a thief, it is difficult - On my previous bag, there were two horizontal compartments on the bottom (to store an umbrella, coat, gloves, rain cover - things that are kept away from side on a daily basis, but can be accessed in a hurry - like it starting to rain) - Only one shoulder strap has a mesh pocket (for various items, barely fits a 6-inch screen smartphone) - On the shoulder straps there are no loops for your hands to rest in or to help carry the bag - No hooks for a water bladder (although the hose can be accessed through the rear zipper) - The wall of the laptop sleeve is too low - The chest strap is too wide, and moves up and down too easily - a shoulder strap/chest strap loosens too easily Overall I think it is a good rolltop bag, however, not a good everyday backpack . I consider this as a downgrade from my previous NH500 30L, which was quite well designed (used it almost everyday for 5 years: school, work, bikepacking trip, hiking, traveling. It is a shame that the zipper started to fail, and the repair was not possible by Decathlon). Correcting the cons, would mean a definite upgrade, but in this current form, I am not sure if I could recommend this rolltop backpack for everyday use

Good backpack but…..

I am delighted with the backpack because of the number of pockets it has and how well it is compartmentalized, but there is one thing that I think is important, which is a zipper at the top to prevent anything from falling out, so keep that in mind for next time. And it would also be good to change the closing buckle for another quick-closing one since with this buckle you always have to give tension to the strap so that it does not come off.

Beautiful, stylish and fits a lot

I bought this backpack to go on sporadic trips and it is perfect. I can put a little world inside it and maybe I can spend weeks with just it and another backpack (notebook) if I have access to a washing machine in the places I go. Super comfortable and has accompanied me from 2 to 15 days in a row outside the house

city backpack

A high-quality backpack for the price, which is suitable not only for the city, but also for nature.

Suitable for everyday…

Suitable for everyday wear and hiking. Lightweight but practical waterproofing. I recommend this product.

Goes on the plane, very good

Being with a small child in my arms between flights, I did not want a cabin troller. This backpack is exactly what I needed. Maybe hard-core tourists and globetrotters would have something to comment on the comfort or roll up top. It seems very good and roomy to me.

Full bag

I use it as a school bag with about 15-20 kilos a day and it's excellent, comfortable, there's plenty of room in it, that's why I bought it because it fits everything I need for school and a small one (= hoodie, thinner jacket) it's simply perfect and even with heavy use, you can feel that this the bag is not a bag for 4-5 years, but at least double or maybe even triple. in short: - it's good and that's how a bag should be

Light and strong.

The backpack…

The perfect backpack! Large capacity, many possible openings, including the one that opens the bag completely.

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.

Outer dimensions

Height : 50 cm | Width: 28 cm  | Thickness: 25cm. This bag can be used as carry-on luggage when travelling by plane as its dimensions meet the airline requirements (IATA). We recommend that you contact your airline for details of the size and weight restrictions on cabin baggage.

Tested for optimal durability

To ensure the bag is strong enough, we conduct laboratory tests on the components and seams, which replicate the long-term wear and tear that the backpack will endure.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 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.

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