Nice bag for storage. for me, it lacks support with a buckle that would come back on the stomach, that's just my opinion... Nice color.


really great, lots of storage very well done, great accommodation to put 500 ml flasks or water bottle on the side, very comfortable and wide straps, a bag that I used for 3 days on hikes and visits, nothing but happiness.


Used as a diaper bag it is perfect


This is the 2nd one I've purchased. This one is for my daughter. Very practical, many pockets. spacious. Comfortable The location for the water bottle is a little small and does not allow you to put a large insulated bottle, only a small one (but that's a detail).

Very useful for work or leisure

A good bag full of pockets

very good backpack

good capacity

Great backpack

Very practical backpack, several pockets, pretty colors and large enough for weekend trips!

Very small capacity

The backpack seems to be very functional, but it is not suitable as hand luggage due to the inability to pack clothes and cosmetics for even 3 days. I regret that I didn't pack it as a test after purchasing it and either bought a larger capacity or returned it.


Excellent price-quality ratio

At the end of the world!

Compact and very functional bag. Carrying is comfortable, the numerous pockets allow you to organize and distribute what you carry.


F durable and practical


I have only been using it for a few days, but I find it very good. Light, comfortable, easy to pack

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 a 15” laptop and 13” tablet, raised to avoid impact,- 6 zipped pockets, 1 6.8” phone pocket (left strap),- 2 extendible, covered bottle holders,- 1 organiser and 1 key holder,- 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.
