Good quality product for a day hike

It is a great backpack for a day hike, good quality fabric, the rain cover is a plus. Only down side is that the tubing of the water bladder can not be held properly and can be a bit annoying in the neck.


Good value for money

Perfect for Hike and daily use.

Very light and has lot of space to carry. Have laptop sleeve and rain cover to cover. Get wet if not used as it is not water proof. I would recommend if you are going on hike or travelling.

very good bag

very useful and comfortable back pack, the back padding and ventilating system is very comfortable and breathable. it does reduce sweating on the back. has easy to use adjustable straps and very useful thumb holds. however, the zipper orientation can make finding the zipper a little more difficult (on the go).

Comfy for short walks

Lots of pockets to put things in for easy finding rather than scrabbling about at the bottom of your bag. Comfy for short walks. Not having a waist strap wpuld not want to do big long walks with it. Lightweight.

Unbeatable for the price

I bought this for a 6 week trip to the states. It went everywhere and really served its purpose well. The two pockets at the side are ideal for holding bottles of water and it's very comfortable. The firm back is well ventilated but also stops awkwardly packed items poking through. Normally I'd prefer a branded product here - but I have no regrets at all with this bag.

Excellent for the price

Bought this after 2 people in my walking group had it and recommended it. Perfect size for day hikes. Lots of smaller zip pockets, 3 hooks for keys etc. Outside pockets perfect for water bottle. Little loops for sticks. Hidden pocket underneath contacts contrasting water proof cover. What’s not to like !!,

Day sack

Comfortable and good looking light weight rucksack

Additional Product Information


Main fabric

  • 100% Polyester cationic


  • 100% Polyester cationic


  • 100% Polyamide

How is 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 straps (shoulder straps, waist strap, load adjusters) 2 - Put the backpack on 3 - Tighten the shoulder strap straps 4 - Adjust the load adjuster straps to suit

How to pack your backpack

Place your heavier items at the bottom. 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. The water bladder will be placed in the compartment provided along the back, and the water bottle in the outer water pockets provided for this purpose.

Laboratory tested

We conduct lab tests to validate the following components: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zippers. For example, for a fabric, we test its resistance to wear, tearing, washing, water-resistance and colorfastness under UV rays. We also carry out tests to check the resistance of assemblies by carrying out accelerated reproductions of the wear and tear on a bag over the years on a mannequin that reproduces the movement of a hiker.

A score for comparing products' environmental impact

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 and contrasting products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks). Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative. Web: Explanatory video:
