Little small

It's a nice backpack. Practical too. Well done. But never thirty liters. I had a 20 liter action backpack that could fit almost as much. But let's be honest, it fits well on your back. I find the belly band and side bands from the shoulder pieces a bit flimsy. They should be 25 mm wide. The zipper on the back is very practical, allowing you to quickly reach the main compartment.

Well designed bag in…

Overall well designed bag, however closing the top gusset is not practical, which is a shame.

Summit Bag

My wife and I bought the models above and below 170 to use as summit bags. Since I am 185 cm tall, I have problems with the fit of the waist column, but we had no alternative at that time and had to buy it out of necessity. The back mesh system is very successful and we did not experience any sweat accumulation, which is why we preferred it. With its thin and medium length structure, it made us very comfortable while climbing and it never got stuck anywhere. However, due to the hard and curved layer inside the back, there may be some problems when putting items on it. But considering the prices of equivalent products in the market, the choice is still in favor. Raincoat, hydration bag, easy access zipper, etc. Features like these are very good. It got a small hole in two places because I had it mounted on a rock, but this is quite normal. The rope is very nice, I can put it on the bag and tighten it with the side straps, but since the waist column does not fit properly, it hurts my shoulder, so I think it would be better for those with a height of 180 cm or less. Simond has 33 liter and renewed 40 liter summit bags, but this product seemed more successful to me, especially because it does not make the back sweat.

hiking backpack

I bought it a few weeks ago. Due to the deterioration of time, we did not have many opportunities together, but we spent them in happiness. It's comfortable, practical, the size is right, because I chose it. I find the waistband to be short, so I thought it would hug my waist better and I wouldn't have to strain so much to reach the pockets on it. At the same time, it's a good purchase in terms of price and value, I recommend it to others.

light, practical, suitable for my carrying capacity.

The only downside is that to wash it in the machine you have to remove the frame and put it back on, it's a sport."

compact and quality bag

I am walking the middle Lycian stage and the stages outside the city. To put it this way, it is a remarkable bag, it is also highly functional, it has a place to put a phone, it has an easy place to access the water bottle, I am 173 cm tall, it is great when careful placement and correct adjustments are made, I have better friends, they probably know, but those who are just starting out To my friends, the summary of the setting is as follows: The back part of the bag should rest on your back after you put your load, and the bottom part of the bag should be there at the belt level. The product looks vibrant and effective in terms of color. Thank you decathlon :)

Hiking backpack

An extremely attractive, comfortable, easily packable backpack in which all important accessories can be placed in a practical way. Its contents can be easily viewed because it can be opened at the bottom, top and side with a zipper.

Very satisfied

Optimal! Conveniently spacious Dedicated space for wallet, keys and glasses Can't be felt on the shoulders

Unfortunately, it has short straps

Unfortunately, as someone wrote before me, if you are really tall (I am 192cm), the straps will probably be short if you want to use a waist belt. The padding ended a little below my shoulder, and the end of the strap would probably chafe my armpit after wearing it all day. I deliberately compared it with other backpacks (need cheaper MH 100 35l) and there the straps are longer... It's a shame, otherwise the backpack wouldn't be wrong...

Top 👍 from my passions in green color to my clothes purchases in green color ditto to the green backpack to the natural, ecological environment to the landscapes and pretty mountains 🏔️ to the pure and natural air against pollution

Alright, just the...

Very good, just the side of the pocket that opens in front is not the one I am used to when I put the backpack on one of my shoulders to swing it in front. So a little difficult to use but otherwise the bag is very good

We take care over abrasion resistance to make your bag durable.The heavy clothing R&D department, a Quechua partner for the research and validation of its components and assemblies, performs tests (on components, seams and the finished product) simulating the ageing of backpacks. Their results allow us to guarantee the bags tested for 10 years from the purchase date shown on the receipt.

Don't throw it, fix it!

Our products will join you on your mountain walks. As you progress, they age, and some parts can get worn or break.To make repairs easier, in the ”Bag accessories / hiking trekking”, we sell tightening buckles and chest clips that are compatible with your bag. Don't throw away, repair !

What differences are there with the old mh500 bag?

The back of this new bag has been fully reworked for greater comfort: a tight net with frame gives you more space between your back and the bag to reduce the damp back effect. This net used for the back, called mesh, is also softer than previously. What's more, this new model comes in 2 sizes for small and large sizes. The 2 hip pockets are more spacious and stretchy and access to flask on the sides is easier.

Why 2 sizes?

During several field test sessions with hikers of different sizes, we noticed that between 20 and 40 liters, the difference in comfort was mainly linked to the back height of the bag: someone with a small frame feels better with a bag that doesn't have a very big back, and someone with a big frame with a larger back. We therefore offer all our models in 2 sizes to meet these requirements.


This bag can hold 1 liter, 2 liter or 3 liter pockets. However, although the pocket is voluminous, it will take up place that could be used for storing other belongings.The side pockets are designed for flasks of maximum 1 liter.

Why are our rain covers orange?

This is a deliberate choice as we believe it's important to stay visible in the mountains, even in fog, in case of any problem. This orange color has the advantage of being visible from a helicopter. It's also a visible color on the road if you use your bag when cycling.

Hand luggage

This bag can be used as hand luggage, so long as you don't load the top too much.
