This is a well-made versatile backpack, comfortable with easy multiple adjustments. Excellent value for money.
A very well designed, practical backpack for travel. Only downside,it is on the heavier side. It would be PERFECT if future model could come with STOWAWAY STRAPS....to hide straps when checking in the luggage at airports and one doesnt want the straps getting caught in anything.
a bit on the heavy side for a long distance trekking bag but I'm used to the weight - great compartments and pockets -more importantly for me you can get to anything anywhere in the bag without disturbing the rest of your gear
I am a traveler and I need to go to the difference places for my work as well as for adventure. I was looking for a bag which could manage everything that I want that too in very systematic way. Regular rucksacks just let you fill the stuff in them. But this bag acts like companion for you. You can arrange things in it and can use whatever you want without making your stuff looks like dump. It is a helpful bag.
I purchased this product for 10-12 days trek by reading product explanation. "Made for men hiking for several days in "backpacker" mode Backpack designed to prevent the risk of pickpocketing with the wide lockable zip, flush against the back. The hood can be converted to a detachable messenger bag to take your documents anywhere." Though this bag has all the features and comfort, but 2.3 kg heavy bag and can not carry 8-10 kg pf luggage for whole day. Did a trail 9.7 kg + 2.3 kg at home 10 - 15 min feels very heavy. Not for trekking or hiking or may be good for a day or 2 because of less things to carry. Product explanation is misleading. Request to change appropriately. Thanks, Nagaraj
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are sorry about the misleading information on the website. You are absolutely right about the product. It is designed for travellers and not for trekkers.
If this product doesn't serve your purpose, kindly visit any of our stores to get it exchanged with a different trekking bag.
I remain available for any further queries:)
Dasma branch let me test this bag. It has inside pockets thats why I love how I can put my things separately.
I recently started the camino de Santiago, a trek of over 520 miles, I wanted a lockable, 50lt rucksack, as i was staying in hostels, but was durable enough to with stand the journey. The biggest plus for this rucksack, is the way it opens, like a suitcase. This allows full access, to save rummaging around, for items at the bottom. This further allowed for the rucksack to be properly packed, as I was doing on average 20 miles a day, & nothing is worse than having to stop half way thru the day, to re-pack your rucksack. The side pockets easily held a 1 litre water bottle, & it was easier enough to remove it, without taking the rucksack off. It was so easy to adjust the straps, whilst wearing, & the waist strap, helped take the weight off the shoulders. If your planning a long hike,over different terrain, I would recommend this.
A backpack weighing empty at 2.3 Kgs is not recommended for a trekker who carries his own load. When one adds to it basic items viz. clothes/ water/ sleeping bags / you will be carrying over 15 kgs on your back and the sheer weight will make your trip miserable. Please note that even 10 kgs will weigh so much more at 3000+ meters than at the confines of your home !! I have a 40 lts backpack purchased at the store and that too I find heavy. You need to market ultra light hiking equipment for trekkers.
Thanks for your valuable time to review the Travel 500 backpack by Forclaz. I apologise for the inconvenience caused to you. As a Trekker myself, I completely agree with you on all the points mentioned.
To give you a small small insight on this product, the Travel 500 backpack as the name says is designed for a backpacker, who does not carry his backpack all the time on his back. You are moving between town to town, place to place but the backpack is transported on vehicle tops, the design and fabric you see on this backpack is keeping in mind that user. The fabric used itself is rugged and heavy because you put it under tough situations, on vehicle tops, bus stations and airports.
The back also comes with a heavy frame at the back to keep the structure of the backpack.
From the points you have added, I believe you are looking for a backpack to go altitudes, carrying your backpack on your own, mountain trekking and I am sorry to say that this backpack has been wrongly guided to you.
If you can let me know your usage, I would be glad to recommend you the right backpack in exchange for this backpack. I stay available if you need any further assistance with our products or services in the future.
this is awesome bag,compartments make it easy to store your belongings very comfortable.I loved this product.The detachable bag makes it easy to carry around camping site while keeping the bag locked safely inside camp. highly recomend this
Took this backpack as I went backpacking across the UK. There are so many neat features in this backpack like compartments for clothes, shoes, dirty clothes bag, rain protecting coat, locking for zippers. It's the best travel companion.

1. The product page has “Forclaz 50” logo however the same is not in the product itself. 2. Though the bag is 50L but does not seem when it comes to actually putting my clothes in. 3 Overall quality of the bag is good/sturdy.

Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavier equipment (tent, camp stove, food) closest to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet can be placed under the flap; the tent goes under the backpack if it doesn't fit inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. In the pockets, distribute the smaller items that you use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc.). If carrying a water bladder, this should be placed in special compartment along the back.
This patented system lets you adjust your bag when you're wearing it, using just a single movement, so that it better fits your body shape: for maximum comfort.
FIRST, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load tension straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. PLACE THE BELT AROUND HIPS (it should cover your pelvic bones) and TIGHTEN. Then PULL THE EasyFit TOGGLES; the strap block goes round your shoulders. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD TENSION STRAPS to suit.
A user-friendly system: Easyfit backpack is 2-3 times quicker to adjust; and number of readjustments = 0 for Easyfit bag. No difference in the quality of adjustment when compared to a back with standard adjustment system: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable in the Friedman statistical test (4%); with 6 times as many backpacks correctly adjusted.
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardized method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. We then empty the balls into a graduated container to measure the equivalent volume in liters to within a few ml. The empty weight displayed corresponds to our standard sample. There may be slight variations.
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifecycle using various indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative. For further information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
The warranty covers any defects/faults with the backpack, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty is only valid on presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is under warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial warranty does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.
The bag is 22" in height, 15.7" in width and 10.2" in depth. It weighs about 5.1 lbs.
We test the bag both in the lab and in the field to ensure its resistance to abrasion, wear, washing, water-resistance and colorfastness in UV light. The weighted backpack is then placed on a dummy that simulates aging by replicating thousands of fast walking movements, in order to check the durability of the assembled parts. The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zippers, etc.) are also tested separately so that we can guarantee these bags for 10 years.
Store your bag in a dry place.
