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:

10-year warranty

Our Quechua hiking backpacks are guaranteed for 10 years. Our commitment? To offer you long-lasting products that you can use on all your country hikes and walks. Because the products we love the most are those that have a story behind them... and plenty of life in them yet! The warranty covers product defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and tear and improper use.



Product testing

Our design team conceives, designs and creates all of our Quechua products at the foot of Mont Blanc, in France. We test them in the field with other hikers, to check their comfort and durability. From Brittany to Corsica, all the way to Reunion Island, we go to as many places, on as many trails, as possible, in all weather. It's a great opportunity to discuss things, and an invaluable way of obtaining your feedback and preparing our future collections!
