Ideal for beach holiday
Lightweight, excellent quality, compartments
Gary (United Kingdom)
30-39 years old Man
used for 2 to 8 weeks
Used for a recent beach holiday. Very comfortable to wear, fits under the plane seat easily so you don't have to keep going in/out of overhead lockers for kids stuff.
Used on the beach and by pool, holds two full sized beach towels rolled up + ipad + shorts in main compartment. Other pockets still spare for drinks, book, shades etc.
Was previously using a bigger rucksack but it was cumbersome on the plane and not enough compartments. This is ideal size and superb value for money.

Good Size, Durable, Comfortable

Barry (United Kingdom)
40-49 years old Man
used for 2 to 8 weeks A great backpack. plenty of room to put stuff in. side pockets help. Have a 10L but thats to small for day trips out and also 35L which is to big for day trips. So this one is perfect.
A wee cracker
Small bellows pockets for gloves, hats & pac-lite.
No padded hip belt, but this ok if you go lite
David (United Kingdom)
50-59 years old Man
used for 2 to 8 weeks Bought on a whim for a tenner, a good buy. Did Tinto & Cairn Table and the sac was ideal for this type of walk or long light weight summer walks. Trick is to keep it light weight 2 x 100wt fleeces plus items in bellow pockets. The heaviest items were flask, water and lunch!
Forclaz 20 back pack
A bit small for hill walking in adverse conditions
joe (United Kingdom)
+60 years old Man
used for 2 to 8 weeks Light, comfortable and just the right size for a day out walking, perhaps not if going to higher altitudes though.
Backpack technical tests. Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, including fabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips, etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness in UV rays, washing, waterproofing, etc. A final test on the finished product simulates the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over several years, to assess the strength of the assembly The backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
10-year guarantee, technical partnership The Strenfit component brand, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. These tests were conducted on the components, the seams, and the finished product. As a result of these tests, Quechua and Strenfit can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
10-year guarantee, conditions The guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is under guarantee, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country of purchase.
How is backpack volume measured? The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised 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.
Environmental measurements Oxylane, together with Quechua, has decided to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. This work follows an experiment that began in July 2011 with the French Ministry of Ecology. Scores ranging from A to E were awarded based on comparisons between Quechua's backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale
How to adjust your backpack? FIRST, LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more, PLACE THE HIP BELT CORRECTLY (it should sit over the pelvis) and TIGHTEN IT. For smaller backpacks, the hip belt should be placed around the waist. TIGHTEN THE SHOULDER STRAPS. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.
100% polyurethane-coated polyester.
All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under conditions identical to those found in typical use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
Restricted use :
Not waterproof; protect your belongings in case of rain.
Store your bag in a dry place.
To ensure materials retain their properties (especially waterproofing), we recommend you do not machine wash, tumble dry, dry clean, or bleach your backpack. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush if needed. After a few years of use, you should renew the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.
