unique with belt

Honestly one of the best Decathlon products I got for my daughter. Apart from the excellent quality/price ratio, it is in fact one of the very few backpacks for children with a waist support belt, in my opinion very important for a trekking backpack unless it is carried empty: so even children they get used to carrying a backpack in the mountains and carrying it properly. Another strong point is the "adjustability" of the backrest from 130cm to 150cm: practical, fast and very stable, it extends the usability of the backpack for several years (my daughter is just over 120cm and at the slightest adjustment she already carries it comfortably). The backpack is very light, has many useful pockets and pockets that children like; the only lack is the specific hole to let out the tube of the water bottle (or hydration bladder) that she uses and helps her drink regularly. I hope it lasts because we are very happy with it

Super practical, everything is…

Super practical, everything is well thought out. I love the side pockets and the waist strap. The only downside: I would have put straps on the shoulder straps to put my thumbs through them. Machine washes well.

Perfect for a child

Personally, the price suits me, for the occasional use that we will use. My 11 year old daughter used it on a school trip. She found it comfortable. She was able to put her daily picnics and everything she needed for the day there. Her little extra: she loves the little pockets to put her sunglasses and sunscreen in, practical and close at hand!

backpack for mountain excursions.

very good and roomy backpack. Lightweight in materials. The backrest adjustment based on the child's height is very convenient.

A few pockets are missing...

It's missing a few pockets but it's still very practical and the volume is perfect for day hikes.

It has everything you need

I bought it for myself (forty years old) who goes on excursions without too many pretensions... I find it to be a very pretty color and that it has all the features (pockets, laces, side bottle holders, fastening with straps on the chest) that those of adults rarely have... if I can suggest you should expand the range of backpacks for adults taking inspiration from this.

A very nice backpack for a young tourist in good condition

The advantage is the ability to adjust the carrying system to the child's height.

Our environmental policy

Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products. Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.

Product design: our expertise

Our design team is based at the foot of Mont Blanc, in Haute-Savoie (France). All year round, we create and develop products that are beautiful, simple and technologically advanced. These are then ruthlessly tested in the field, as we remain convinced that only through rigorous testing under real world conditions, like the ones you will be using them in, can we continue to provide you with better products than ever.

Where do our backpacks come from?

Created in our international design centre at the foot of Mont Blanc in France, this backpack is then manufactured by our suppliers in China and Vietnam. We collaborate closely and with these partners who have real expertise in the manufacture of our backpacks. Thanks to this relationship of trust with our industrial partners, we can create high-quality technical products.

Working conditions in our production workshops

We guarantee that our suppliers comply with our code of conduct. These suppliers are often located in developing countries where our presence helps to create jobs.By conducting audits and having teams on site, we make sure that the working environment of the employees meets certain quality standards in terms of human respect, personal fulfilment and environmental protection.

Product testing

We complete laboratory tests to certify components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips... for example, for a fabric: resistance to abrasion & tearing, colour-fastness in UV light, resistance to washing, waterproofing, etc. A test is then conducted on the product replicating the accelerated demands on the backpack over a number of years to check the strength of the assembly: the backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking over thousands of cycles.

Storage instructions

Store the rucksack in a dry place.
