Though it ia 40l, the space inside is constrain by the metal frame. Also the back pack xan't 'stand' when place on the ground.

Hello Liang Lee,

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review on the MH500 40L Mountain Hiking Backpack. We understand your concerns and will send your sincere feedback to our product engineers!
The metal frame actually allows your back to have better ventilation when you use it :) Also, most of our range of backpacks do not "stand" when placed on ground.
Do come down to any of our store and our sports advisors will be more than happy to assist you! Hope to see you soon.

Cheers!

Your Smiley Hiker,

Small rain cover

The rain cover is very small and doesn’t fit. Such a careless thing to do

Excellent bag

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

Great backpack

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

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.

40l backpack

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

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…?

La espalda un 8

Saque el armazon e hierro para limpiar la mochila, este se deformo y ahora no hay quien lo meta en vereda, he ido a 2 tiendas a que me lo pusieran, ha sido imposible devolverle su forma original y ahora cuando le meto algo de peso a la mochila, es incomodisima volver a ponersela,por todo lo demas la mochila esta bien.

Buena relación calidad precio

La compré con la idea de usarla como equipaje de mano sin facturarla y la pude subir a cabina. Le quité la estructura metalica para ganar sitio y la verdad que si no vas a hacer grandes distancias andando, es comoda para la espalda. La funda a mi me caló un poco. Nos llovió bastante asi que por la espalda caló y por la parte de abajo también. La distribución de bolsillos y la apertura lateral es muy comoda para sacar cosas del fondo sin desmontar todo.

De sobresaliente

Compre esta mochila para asegurarme de que la espalda no fuera un problema durante 11 etapas del Camino de Santiago y así ha sido. Mido 1,84 y peso 88kg. Sufro algún problema de espalda, sobre todo de lumbares, y durante los 11 días casi puedo decir que la he disfrutado. Después de 7h andando me dolían más los pies que la espalda. La busque con estructura de varillas ya que tengo una más pequeña, también de Decathlon y me va genial para jornadas de un día, y este modelo me ha ido muy bien también. El sistema de ventilación a mi no me ha evitado que la espalda deje de sudar pero tampoco lo pretendía. Al menos hace que lo de dentro de la mochila se mantenga seco. La capacidad para verano-otoño suficiente. Un 3 en 1 de abrigo, 3 mudas de ropa interior, 3 de ropa de andar más algo de vestir, más algo ligero de abrigo para por las mañanas, pequeño botiquín/neceser, algo básico de comer y la tecnología y no he ido lleno al 100% en ningún momento. Si llevas otro calzado a parte y/o más ropa de abrigo si que es algo justa pero a mí me han sobrado 5 litros y eso que creo que he llevado ropa de más. 35 litros bien aprovechados sería ideal y así te aseguras de meter menos peso y poder andar más ligero. Muy acertado la cantidad de ajustes para colocársela donde aconsejan que tiene que ir para evitar la fatiga. Clave el sistema de cinturón. Muy acertado también las dos tiras para descansar los pulgares y poder así al menos cambiar la postura. También he usado mucho los bolsillos auxiliares y nada los del cinturón. 60€ que en vez de un gasto han resultado ser una inversión.

Muy buena compra.

Utilizada para el "Camino de Santiago", muy cómoda y ligera y la cemallera frontal facilita la búsqueda en su interior, al llegar a los finales de etapa, no era necesario desmontar toda la mochila.

Quizas el tamaño de 50lts hubiera sido el ideal.

Excelente. Me sirvio para viaje en avion y como mochila de viaje por tren y autobus. Resistente y con varios compartimientos

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: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

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.

Storage instructions

Store the backpack in a dry place.
