The most functional bag ever

Plenty of well-designed storage, 3 main zipped pockets + a small secure one under the carrying handle; almost invisible soft side pockets with vertical opening on the back side, a large smartphone fits safely, a small one on a carrying strap, interior compartments including a zipped net. Small pockets, pen holders... a marvel for those who like everything to find its place.

beautiful, comfortable, useful

As soon as I saw it I fell in love with it. compact, beautiful and spacious with many super convenient pockets for tickets, keys, pens, wallet, etc. I use it every day as a holder for objects and documents. Does not fit 15" PC.

Compartmented backpack

One of the few backpacks with practical interior pockets for various items, including a pen.

Super practical

This bag is really ideal. Lots of storage with all its pockets. It is light, pretty and affordable.

Meets expectation

It is a spacious backpack with several pockets.

Cabin bag.

Great bag, just what you need to travel light by plane. The right dimensions to put it in the cabin. Very nice aesthetic and beautiful color. Very good product !

Compact and spacious

It is a compact and light backpack that fulfills the functions perfectly to be your day-to-day space even if you need the kit for a 4-year-old child.

Excellent backpack, practical and resistant. Used as Ryanair hand luggage. The capacity doesn't seem high, but the various compartments are practical and allow you to carry more things than you might expect. Advised!


Comfortable and with many pockets.

Very nice

Ideal for our small cabin luggage and our short hikes Pockets for great water bottles Bright yellow color Impeccable black

Although the backpack is very aesthetically pleasing, in essence it is impractical, not suitable for travel because it has few compartments both inside and outside and also for everyday use it is not very suitable (it doesn't even have a cell phone pocket ).

I love it but already torn!!!

I love this product, it has pockets everywhere, a nice comfortable color too, but now it's already torn!!! On the side where you can put the phone Fragile or faulty? Is there a way to replace it?


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

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.

Storage instructions

Store your backpack in a dry place.
