Great backpack for a day out in the peaks!

This is a very good backpack for short hikes and/or a day out. It can fit a medikit, a change of clothes, plenty of food, a water bladder, two extra bottles of water/drinks, a mat and much more. The included plastic rug is ideal for picnics. The backpack is also water resistant and behaves very well under the summer rainfalls. Great product overall!

Great backpack overall!

Foam pads at the back make it more breathable but still sweat on contact. Straps fully adjustable and the bag sits perfectly against the back keeping an ergonomic position! Thermal compartment works very well, tested with a thin ice pack. The blanket is a great touch and still one of my favourite perks, alongside the phone pocket on the shoulder strap! Amazing backpack for the pricepoint! Only downfall is the lack of padding on waist strap and would be great to have waist pockets on the strap.

Really good backpack

I really like the design & comfortable straps. The cooler compartment in the bottom is really useful. Materials seem of high quality.

Well thought out hiking bag

The cool bag section of this bag works brilliantly. The mat is surprisingly compact. This is a very comfortable and well-thought-out bag.

Straps unusable after 1 year, no customer service

I bought the bag a year ago. Initially, I was very happy with it, it was exactly what I needed for a day long trips with kids. But recently, the foam in one of the straps compacted or moved and I can't wear it anymore as if gives me backache. I've been trying to get help with customer service but it's impossible. Really dissatisfied with the product and lack of support. I will not be buying decathlon rucksacks in the future.

Fantastic bag

Comfortable shoulder straps and the zip inside to make the cooling section into a unit of its own is more sturdy than I expected. It even has a sheet in the bottom to be used as a picnic blanket, I love it

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.

How to adjust your backpack?

- Loosen all the straps (straps, belt, load adjuster straps) - Put on the backpack - Tighten the shoulder straps - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.

How to fill your backpack?

Put your heavy items at the bottom. Pack your clothes around these items ;- Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece within arm’s reach ;- Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets. ;- The water bladder will be placed in the compartment provided along the back, and the water bottle in the outer flask holder pockets provided for this purpose.

Developed thanks to your feedback, tested with hikers

This bag was designed thanks to all the customer feedback and hikers' observations.Indeed, the idea is to separate and keep your picnic cool when hiking, while separating it from other belongings (clothing, wallet, telephone, etc.).This bag has been tested by many hikers and has enabled us to test its functions and make some improvements.

Laboratory tested

We carry out several laboratory tests to validate the bag's components: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips. For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and waterproofing. We also conduct tests to check the resistance of assembly using a dummy that reproduces the movements of a hiker to replicate several years of wear and tear on the bag.

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. Brittany, Corsica, Reunion Island, Nice, etc. This backpack has been tested and improved by hikers in Nice and on Réunion Island in different weather conditions.

Storage instructions

Store your backpack in a dry place.
