Your comfort above all

Back: 5 pads, composed of 2 types of 15mm-thick foam (PE - PU).Shoulder straps: composed of 2 different foams (EVA - PU) 0.31 to 0.43 thick.The chest strap has cushioning & its height and width is adjustable.

We have reduced our environmental impact on this product

We have improved this product with an eco-design approach. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the color pigments when the yarn itself is produced (dark grey color, product reference: 8649496).


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, product 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 liters.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 optimum durability and strength

To guarantee the durability of the bag, laboratory tests are conducted on the components and assemblies to replicate the ageing of the backpack.For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, the color 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.
