40l backpack

Excellent pack, survived multi day walk in the NZ alps. Excellent space and pocket locations. Poles tuck away nicely too.

Great backpack

This backpack is light, easy to transport and keeps the stuff accessible. For the price, it is a great product!

mh500 40 L rucksack

wow what a brilliant rucksack, lightweight ,full of technical features .my favourite trekking backpack. think decathlon do not sell this anymore which is a crying shame .As it has it all ,Maybe change the colour .

Connecting equipment to the rucksack....

Could you recommend how to attach equipment to the material loop and plastic hoops on the bottom of the sack?

Excellent day sack

I like many things about this bag. Side and lid pockets accessible when wearing (I have long arms!). Twin waist pockets ideal for my GPS device and pocket spyglass / compass etc. Outside pocket for sitting mat (I invariably back my bag and only remember the mat when stood up). I returned previous bag due to abnormal wear and tear and I noticed on receiving this bag that, contra to the former one, it contains a lightweight metal frame. This is comfortable and effective when adjusted properly, but could be uncomfortable if poorly adjusted, in my case digging into the shoulder. Incidentally, I'm a man and I see no reason why this should be labelled a women's backpack, but maybe others can explain…?

Excellent bag

I bought it for a 5 days trekking in Swiss Alps. A wonderful bag though I wish it could a bit larger.

Value for money, although....

Great value for money, rather tough as we even checked it in as luggage when we flew, although I wish it’s a tad bigger as it shows its size compared to our 60L backpack.

Hello Prajyot,

Thank you for your feedback. We are glad to know that you are happy with the product, however, you have given a 3-star rating. Could you please let us know what can we improve on this product, which would make your experience better?

Awesome Bag!

This is awesome bag in this range. You can go with it, if your budget is Rs. 2500 and you want to spend your every single penny in good bag so this is the one.


Bag is good by quality but unfortunately not in terms of space and rain cover is too small

Excellent product

Had enough space with good back support. Good quality product at that price range.

Backpack technical tests

We carry out laboratory tests to validate all component parts: fabric, buckles, straps, foam and zippers. For example, for fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colorfastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment it will experience over several years, to assess the strength of the assembly. The backpack is weighted then placed on a dummy, which then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles

10-year warranty, 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 warranty, 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 warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.

How is backpack 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 liters.

How to adjust 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.

How to pack a backpack?

Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear near to the back. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Place small items for daily use (sunblock, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.

Environmental measures

The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire lifecycle using different 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 committed to displaying the environmental data of its products. For further information:



Product testing

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.
