The zipper on the bottom part quickly broke, so I couldn't put it back on to have greater capacity.

Quality with buts.

It is a backpack that mixes urban and hiking with a clear emphasis on great compartmentalization and space. For me it is the most comfortable backpack I have ever tried to take to work. Things don't dig into your back at all because it is semi-rigid and has good padding. The only big problem I see is that it says that it accepts 15" laptops, but mine, even though it is, is extremely tight, making it even counterproductive to carry it there. It is very tight as it is a little thicker than average and can hardly even be closed. the zipper for height, but that should not be a problem if, as we have said, it supposedly supports 15". The solution is to carry it as is in that compartment outside the laptop pocket but losing the elevation to protect it from hitting the ground.

Our commitment to consume less water with this product

We have improved this product with an eco-design approach.Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. We dye every other thread to reduce water consumption and water pollution.To reduce our impact on the environment, we choose the method of bulk dyeing, by integrating the color pigments from the manufacture of the yarn (references: 8649342, 8649339, 8649346).

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 23 L. We also measured the volume with the 2 exterior side water bottle pockets, its total capacity increasing to 25 L.

Your comfort above all

To fully enjoy your hikes, we put comfort at the heart of 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 up of 2 foams (PE - PU) 15 mm thick,- Straps made up of 2 foams (EVA - PU) 8 -13 mm thick.

14 pockets and 3 compartments to keep you organised

- 3 compartments and numerous pockets (14), to separate and organize all your belongings,- 1 compartment with secure zip, including 2 pockets for a 15” PC and 13” tablet, raised to avoid knocks,- 6 zipped pockets, 1 hidden zipped pocket, 1 x 6.8” phone pocket (left strap),- 2 expandable, covering water bottle holders,- 1 organizer and 1 key ring,- 1 passage for cable and 1 pocket for battery,- 1 lamp holder,- 1 strap to connect to a suitcase.


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 : 18.1 in. | Width: 11 oz.  | Thickness: 8.6in. This bag can be used as cabin luggage when travelling by plane, as its dimensions meet airline requirements (IATA). We recommend that you contact your airline for details of the size and weight restrictions on cabin baggage.

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?

- Loosen all the straps, shoulder straps and chest strap,- Put on the bag,- Buckle the chest strap, adjust it in height and width,- Tighten the shoulder straps (from top to bottom),- Adjust to your liking.It’s adjusted!

How to fill your backpack?

- Place heavy equipment - computer, picnic, for example - in the bottom and in the locations provided. Pack your clothes around these items;- Spread out small items for the day (phone, sun cream, map, glasses, keys, wallet etc.) in the pockets. ;- The water bottle(s) should be put in the outer side pockets provided for this purpose.

Product testing

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