Super practical

Corresponds to hand luggage for the plane, the different pockets are well suited to what you need to take.

It would be even better if the anti-collision was strengthened!

I bought this bag...

I bought this bag for traveling. Based on the arguments of a seller, I thought that the reinforced and padded back would be a comfort asset but in reality it harms the volume capacity. Too many specific compartments and the bag is not easy to close. Ultimately impractical while more expensive. A “basic” bag would have suited me more.

Very comfortable, practical with all these compartments. Nice look, discreet. The compartments on both sides of the bag are super practical for storing a bottle (so discreet that you don't even see the bottles anymore!!!). All that is missing is a small pocket on the back of the bag to put identity documents and money to make sure it is safe.

I borrowed one of these backpacks for the holiday, and when I got home I checked which other stores could get it

Very good backpack, ok price and 100% manageable

It is a pleasure to go with this backpack, it is more urban than for the mountains but it works in all environments.

Additional Product Information


Main fabric: 100.0% Polyester ; Main lining: 100.0% Polyester ; Webbing: 100.0% Polypropylene ; Coating: 100.0% Polyurethane

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 main bag’s volume capacity is 23 L. We have measured the volume with the 2 water bottle outer side pockets, its total capacity reaches 25 L.

Your comfort above all

To fully enjoy your hikes, we put comfort at the heart of our product design.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.The chest strap has cushioning, & its height and width is adjustable.- Back: 5 pads made from 2 types of foam (PE - PU) 15 mm thick,- Shoulder straps made from 2 types of foam (EVA - PU) 8-13 mm thick.

14 pockets and 3 compartments to keep you organised

- 3 compartments with numerous pockets (14), to separate and organise all your belongings,- 1 secure zipped compartment, including 2 pockets for 15” laptop and 13” tablet, raised to avoid impact,- 6 zipped pockets, 1 hidden zipped pocket, 1 6.8” phone pocket (left strap),- 2 extendable and covered bottle holders,- 1 organiser and 1 key holder,- 1 cable inlet and 1 battery pocket,- 1 lamp holder,- 1 suitcase attachment strap.


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: “20 to 40 L rain cover”, which can be viewed on our website, item reference 8734213.

Outer dimensions

Height : 46 cm | Width: 28 cm  | Thickness: 22cm. This bag can be used as cabin baggage for a plane trip as its dimensions meet airline (IATA) requirements. We recommend that you contact your airline for details of the size and weight restrictions on cabin baggage.

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?

- Loosen all the straps, shoulder, stomach and chest,- Put the bag on,- Buckle the chest strap, adjust the height and width,- Tighten the shoulder straps (top to bottom),- Adjust as needed.It’s adjusted!

How to fill your backpack?

Put your heavy items in the bottom and the laptop, picnic items for example in the intended places. Pack your clothes around these items;- Place small items for daily use (phone, sun cream, map, glasses, keys, wallet, etc.) in the pockets ;- Water bottle(s) will go in the outer side pockets intended for this purpose.

Product testing

Our design team imagines, creates and designs the Quechua products at the foot of the Mont Blanc, in France. 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.
