I took this backpack on the Annapurna Sanctuary trail in The Himalayas. The trek was 9 days in total and I wore the backpack between 3 and 7 hours per day. It is extremely comfortable, especially when worn high up my back. I used a water bladder which is easily accesible. The side buckles made it easy to access my waterproof jacket and I kept a spare water bottle in the back outside pocket. The side pockets in the waistband were very useful for suntan lotion, handwash and my phone. The best aspect of this rucksack is that you can unzip it for easy access to everything inside. I would highly recommend this rucksack, for day treks where you don't need to carry a lot of gear, it easily holds about 12-15 kilos and it is very comfortable. Another outstanding Decathalon product.
It a great small backpack. It's for walking, not great if you want to carrot a lot, but fantastic if you want waterproofs, food, drink, etc.
My wife and I had our honeymoon hiking in the Tatra mountains and bought two of these to try them out. Liked the smaller size, good weight, strong structure and great price. They were perfect. They couldn't have been better. And a ten year warranty!!
I bought this to replace a rucksack that is now showing its age after a few years of abuse. This has all the features that I need, large main compartment, side mesh pockets, pole clips, waist pockets and a full rig harness. The main compartment has the conventional drawstring top but also has a nearly full-length top and tail zip on one side to facilitate easy access. A rigid frame and a mesh back make this bag much more comfortable to use on long hikes and also enable a much easier initial fit. The only minus, the hydration bladder is housed in a sleeve at the back of the main compartment rather than its own dedicated compartment as some of my previous bags. The feed pipe also leaves the bag through an opening on the right side of the main compartment rather than the top/middle which restricts your choice of layout but other than that I can't fault it so far.
Best fit for two one or a two-day trip...nice support and free air movement,backrest option superb..rich with features Overall very satisfied with the product..
I use this backpack 5days a week for work. It has travelled to Germany, London, Italy and been on several long day hikes. I recently took it for an overnight camping trip in Sydney, carrying a 2 person lightweight tent, a sleeping bag, air mattress, butane cooking boiler and a 3litre bladder. Yes it was a fairly tight fit but this backpack served its purpose, as I hiked over 30km with it on. No injuries caused from excessive wearing and the back support and air ventilation is what drew me this bag. I am now looking at upgrading to the 30-40L version just for the additional space to carry extra food and not have an attachment to the side of the backpack.
A daysack with some really innovative design features at half the price I anticipated paying for the quality. Really pleased with how comfortable and practical it is.
Nice partition support and back support system, however the color of the real item is quite different from the online picture (KHAKI). The online picture make me expect that the backpack is grey but it end up comes with a very green tone color (turtle green), so I just return it. Personally, I believe the REAL Grey color will work a lot better than the current green tone, with the slightly blue tone mesh and these yellow cable, disappoint at this point.
Excellent day bag love it
After many years of use and abuse of my old backpack I decided brought this want because look perfect for a day, is nice, well build, so why not ?the issue is that is well ventilated but you are going to have the frame stuck into your shoulders every single step, so in the end.. Not recommend
I've used this backpack for one day hikings and I have been very satisfied. It is really easy to use, it has lots of small pockets so you don't have to open your bag all the time to grab your water or phone or whatever. The best thing about this bag is how confortable it is. You don't feel the weight of the bag at all. I truly recommend it!
Just what I needed
A great quality backpack from Decathlon. I use iit for small treks as well as daily office going. Has enough options\pockets to take care of all your belonging. An awesome product!!!
Very useful back. Not the most spacious at 20L, but it keeps its rigid shape. Useful for day walking trips or running to/from work.

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. 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 movement of fast walking over thousands of cycles.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear near to the back. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece close to hand. Place small items for daily use (sunblock, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets. Put the water bladder in the compartment that is designed for this.
Decathlon and Quechua have chosen to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpack products over the entire lifecycle. This work resulted from an experiment completed in July 2011 alongside the French Ministry of Ecology. Scores ranging from A to E were awarded based on comparisons between Quechua's backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale
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.
