Brilliant backpack

Brilliant backpack although difficult to look over shoulders or wear with a jacket with a hood due to the top part sitting so high. But apart from that it's brilliant. Amazing colour. Plenty pockets and space

被產品的顏色吸引著,於是選了這背包進行今次的旅程。 產品很全面,有不同的位置放置行山用品,例如行山杖,水袋。。。縮減了等候的時間。而且有很多支撐帶,滿足不同身高的行山人仕。但唯一的缺點就重量問題,如果可以再輕一點點,就能十全十美

Decathlon hiking

實地體驗,去黃牛石城,天氣不似預期,沒有猛烈的太陽,但溫度仍是偏高,體貼的設計,air cooling system,上山時不會汗流浹背。有水袋位,可放2L水,適合1 day hiking。兩側腰帶有袋,適合放手機、卡和零錢,更可放些小食糖果,方便。背囊冚有袋,可將物品分門別類擺放,容易提取。

Not suitable

Unfortunately this bag was bigger ( well taller) than I had expected so was returned for this reason only as otherwise perfect in style and composition I must congratulate decathlon on their returns process - the money was back in my account in less than 24 hours

Mochila de senderismo de 20 L, con ventilación máxima de la espalda para ofrecer mayor comodidad. Ligera y con espalda ajustable. ¡Te encantará su funda impermeable integrada!

Tela transpirable rota

Compre la mochila en julio y llevaremos 200 km recorridos. En la parte de abajo de la mochila la rejilla de tela transpirable se me ha hecho un agujero. Así que dudo de la durabilidad del producto. No llevo cinturón en los pantalones así que no es por el roce.

Bona compra

Motxilla lleugera, no sua l'esquena, combina bé el pes i bonica.

Muy incómoda

Tirantes acolchados incómodos que se clavan en los hombros cargando las cervicales

No me gusta

Es cómoda si, pero la parte de abajo de la espalda acaba empapada y la veo demasiado rígida. A las horas te produce molestias,no es como esperaba. Me la quedaré porque no tengo el ticket si no la devoveria y compraría otra cosa más barata y que la lleve mejor

Muy útil para acampada.

Muy buena calidad

Comprada para mi mujer, desde el primer momento se observa mucha calidad en tejido y terminaciones, la capacidad parece mayor de 20 l. Sin duda una buena compra.

Backpack technical tests

We carry out laboratory tests to validate all component parts: fabric, buckles, straps, foam & zippers. For example, for fabric: wear/tear resistance, color-fastness in UV light & after washing, waterproofing etc. To assess the overall strength of the design, the finished product undergoes a final test, simulating the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over time. the backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy, which simulates the motion of fast walking, repeated thousands of times

10-year warranty, technical partnership

The heavy stitching R&D department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack aging. The tests focused on components, seams and the finished product. As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.

10-year warranty, conditions

The warranty covers all backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial warranty does not affect any statutory warranties that are applicable in the country of purchase.

How is backpack volume measured?

The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardized 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.

How to adjust your backpack?

1 - Loosen all the straps (shoulder straps, lap belt, load tension straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more, position the lap belt correctly (it should sit over the pelvis) and tighten it. For smaller backpacks, the belt should be placed around the waist. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Adjust the load tension straps as needed.

How to pack a backpack?

Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy equipment near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Place small, everyday items (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. The water bladder should be placed in the special compartment along the back.

Environmental measures

Decathlon, together with Quechua, has opted to inform you about the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks, calculated over the product's entire lifespan. This work was the result of an experiment carried out with the French Ministry of Ecology, dating back to July 2011. Products were assigned scores ranging from A to E, based upon a comparison of Quechua bags only. Details of this project and calculation methods used are available at



Product testing

All our models are tested by users, representative of our target market, in conditions identical to those encountered in real-life. We believe that carrying out 'real-life' testing is the only way to develop and continue to improve the technical relevance and design of all our Quechua products.
