We carry out laboratory tests to validate all component parts: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, and zippers. For example, for fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colour fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing. 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 then reproduces the movements of fast walking over 1000s of cycles.
10-year guarantee, technical partnership
The heavy stitching research and development department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack aging. The tests focused on components, seams, and the end product. As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
10-year guarantee, conditions
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 guarantee, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. This commercial warranty does not exclude applicable legal warranties depending on the country and/or State.
How is volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardized 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.
Adjusting your backpack
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more, place the hip belt correctly (it should sit over the pelvis) and tighten it. For smaller backpacks, the belt should be placed around the waist. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
Adjusting your backpack height
Set the bag for the height you think will be correct and then adjust it (see "Adjusting your backpack"). With the belt on your pelvis, put the straps around the front part of your shoulders and the load adjuster straps (which are sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45° (they should never be horizontal or vertical). When trying it on, if the back seems too short or too long, readjust and try again until you are satisfied.
Packing a backpack
Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should be placed under the flap and the tent beneath the pack if there is no space inside. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece sweater close at hand. Place small items for daily use (sunscreen, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over the entire life cycle of the product using various indicators. An overall rating of ABCDE is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with each other (T-shirts, pants, and backpacks). Decathlon is a voluntary participant in this environmental labelling process. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
All our models are tested by users representative of our target market in conditions identical to those you encounter yourself when using them. We believe that carrying out real-life testing is the only way to design and continuously advance the technical relevance and design of all our Quechua products.
