very good products correspond to my expectations, don't worry, I recommend these items

Practical, ideal size

Cool colors, perfect size, lots of storage.


Very convenient

A very well designed bag

It's very well made, not bulky but well laid out, there are several interior pockets that close with a zipper. It is pretty and can be forgotten on the back. The fabric bottle storage on the sides is practical and well thought out. A good everyday or short hiking bag.

Super practical!


Very good bag

Practical, solid and comfortable and I find it very pretty, it suits me

I recommend

Everything's fine. I recommend

Good, pretty, cheap

I release the backpack. I go to work. Whose backpack is that? How beautiful she is! And also, perfectly finished, with the right pockets, comfortable,... I am very happy


I bought it for my son, he likes it! It has lots of pockets and holding parts, it's comfortable. It's a shame that it's not 20 liters, but that's the only negative about it😅😊

useful, practical and compact

useful, practical and compact. The side water bags are small and only fit a 600ml water bottle, the color is beautiful.


This is exactly what I was looking for for traveling, especially for flying, the size is perfect. Beautiful color and with all those pockets, it's perfect.

Slightly disappointed

Overall, the backpack is OK. The size is correct. The rest is worse. I have the impression that the description is from a different model. There is definitely no hidden pocket or cable hole. As for the comfort of wearing for a long time - not yet tested. But it seems like it will be comfortable.


Small capacity backpack, with plenty of pockets and pockets, very good for short hikes. Super happy with the purchase. I recommend it 😊

Very Good

I already knew the black model. And the mustard color caught my attention. And they remain an exceptional backpack. Practice for everyday life. The ideal size. The sections, both indoor and outdoor, are an asset for those who have different types of items to transport. Ideal for teachers and students.

Good, but this color lacks boxes

I had asked whether this bag in yellow was the same because it said 16 liters and the others said 17 liters if you had to choose. Received the answer that they were the same, but that is not the case. The black one has more storage places and zippers than the ocher yellow ones. Furthermore, the bag is perfect for hand luggage on a plane and for walking.

Your comfort above all

To take full advantage of a hike, we devote particular attention to designing comfortable products.The back, shoulder straps & handle are comfortable because of their thickness and construction composed of different types of foam padding covered with a 3D mesh to improve ventilation & drying.Back:5 pads, composed of 2 types of 15mm-thick foam (PE - PU).Shoulder straps:composed of 2 different foams (EVA - PU) 8 to 13mm thickThe chest strap has cushioning, & its height and width is adjustable.


The components of the bag are water-repellent so that you can temporarily continue walking/hiking in light rain. Caution: this backpack is not watertight/waterproof and it does not have a rain cover. If you want to continue walking/hiking in the rain and protect your belongings, we recommend the following model: “10 to 20 L rain cover”, which can be viewed on our website, item reference: 8772113.

How is volume measured?

The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard 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 litres.The capacity of the main volume of this bag is 16L. We also measured the volume with the 2 exterior side water bottle pockets, whereby its total capacity increases to 17L

Tested for optimal durability

To ensure the bag is strong enough, we conduct laboratory tests on the components and seams, which replicate the long-term wear and tear that the backpack will endure.For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, the colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and the waterproofing. We use these tests to guarantee the bags for a period of 10 years from the date of purchase on the receipt.

How to adjust your backpack?

1 - Loosen all straps, shoulder straps and chest belt2 - Put on the bag3 - Buckle the chest belt, adjust its height and width4 - Tighten the shoulder straps (from top to bottom)5 - Adjust to fitYou’re all set!

How to fill your backpack?

Place the heavy items, e.g. laptop, picnic, etc., in the bottom and in the spaces provided. Pack your clothes around these items. Put the small belongings that you will use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc.) in the pockets. Put the water bottle(s) in the outer pockets on the sides that are made for this purpose.

Product testing

It’s in France, at the foot of Mont Blanc, that our design team conceives, designs and creates Quechua products. We test them in the field with other hikers to make sure that they are comfortable and durable. This backpack has been tested and improved by hikers in different climatic conditions and different environments.
