Well thought out product. Base is waterproof, and this bag has many, many, many compartments for organisation. There is a cable management system, and a pocket in the should strap. Very impressed!

Hello Lesley, thank you for your product review!

A workhorse

Sturdy bag and comfortable on the back. Been rocking it for a few months absolutely stuffed whilst working two jobs, with no signs of giving up. Fits more than you can think at 23l and the compartments help keep everything well organised; from a tablet, laptop, mouse, charger, earbuds, couple of packed lunches, cutlery, a belt pouch, 2l of water, a raincoat, IDs, keys, money, pens/markers, Vaseline, medicines and shopping bags. Can't beat the price. Only downside is the waterproof-ness not being the best through the zippers at the top, but easily resolved with a rain cover for a few bucks online.

SUper Backpack

this is a well thought out backpack... plenty of usefully sized pockets and compartments. Particularly like mobile pocket on shoulder strap and hidden pocket for valuables to side.

Great customer service

As an update to previous review about broken buckle, decathlon staff didn’t batter an eyelid when I asked for an exchange. They stand by their warranty and I hope my replacement bag last a very long time. It is so well designed and extremely suited to my needs.

Broken buckle

Such a pity. I love this bag but the buckle on the main shoulder strap broke after three uses. I’ll try to claim under warrior a replacement. But stock is unreliable. A very useful bag and great size. I hope I can rely on Decathlon for a good after sales experience

Great rucksack

Tons of clever pockets, really comfortable to carry even with a heavy load, very good quality and finish. Recommend!

excellent go to office bag

My wife looking for a work bag, she has finally found it. Ideal for the lap top, numerous pockets and stands up right by itself with a top handle as well for carrying on the crowded train. Looks smart and professional. Particular likes lap top against section against your back ( padded) which means the main part offers protection. Outside water bottle elastic pouches as well as phone pouch. Top section for easy storage of work neckless work pass/keys. She been looking for right bag for ages, ( or is just women looking for bags? ) I would not use it for hiking though. We would not have found it on internet as so much better in when you actually see and use it. Bought it for shop.

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 colour 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 litres.The capacity of the main volume of this bag is 23 L. We also measured the volume with the 2 external side pockets, its total capacity increases to 25 L.

Your comfort above all

To make the most of 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 composed of 2 foam pads (PE - PU) 15 mm thick,- Shoulde straps composed of 2 foam pads (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 15” PC and 13” tablet, raised to avoid shocks,- 6 zipped pockets, 1 hidden zipped pocket, 1 phone pocket 6. 8” phone pocket (left shoulder strap),- 2 expandable and coverable water bottle holders,- 1 organizer and 1 key ring,- 1 cable channel and 1 battery pocket,- 1 lamp holder,- 1 strap for connecting 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 35 L rain cover”, which can be viewed on our website, item reference 8303438.

Outer dimensions

Height : 46 cm | Width: 28 cm  | Thickness: 22cm. This bag can be used as carry-on luggage when travelling by plane, as its dimensions meet the 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 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 straps, shoulder straps and chest belt,- Put on the bag,- Buckle the chest belt, adjust its 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, such as computers and picnics, in the back and in the designated areas. 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) can be placed in the outer side pockets provided for this purpose.

Product testing
