Waterproofing built-in rain cover
Backpack technical tests. Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests: fabric, buckles, webbing, foam, zips... For example, fabrics are tested for: resistance to wear and tearing, colour-resistance to UV rays and washing, waterproofing... A test of 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 partner for research and testing of its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. These tests were conducted on the components, the seams, and the finished product. Their results allow Quechua and Strenfit to guarantee the tested bags for a duration of 10 years starting from the date of purchase indicated on the receipt.
10-year guarantee, conditions The guarantee covers backpack defects, excluding those resulting from normal wear and abnormal conditions of use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and receipt. If the product is covered by the guarantee, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial guarantee does not exclude statutory guarantees applicable in individual countries and/or States.
How is the 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, with Quechua, has chosen to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over the entire life cycle of the product. This work follows from an experiment conducted beginning in July 2011 with the French Ministry of Ecology. The ABCDE grades have been awarded based on comparison between Quechua backpacks only. The details of this project and methods of calculation are available on www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale
How do I adjust my backpack? FIRST, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. For backpacks with a capacity of 50L or more, PLACE THE HIP BELT CORRECTLY (over the pelvis) and FASTEN IT. For smaller backpacks, the hip belt should be placed around the waist. TIGHTEN THE SHOULDER STRAPS. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS to suit you.
How to adjust the height of the back of your bag Position the adjustment at the appropriate assumed height, then adjust the bag (see "How do I adjust my backpack?"). With the belt on your pelvis, the straps should go round the front part of your shoulders, and the load adjuster straps (sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45° (they must not go horizontally or vertically). If, when trying it on, the back seems too short or too long, readjust and try again until you are satisfied. "
How to pack a backpack Put your bedding in the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should be placed under the flap; and the tent beneath the pack if there is no space inside. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close to hand. Small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses...) should be placed in the pockets. Usually, there is a compartment along the back for a water bladder.
The Symbium Access system The Symbium Access combines the advantages of the Symbium (freedom of movement) with our exclusive system which allows you to shift 1 pocket round to the front of your chest: easy access to many items while walking. This also allows you to shift some of the weight to the front: it is easier to stand up straighter, in almost your normal position
Air Cooling Design "Air Cooling" certified packs are subjected to a laboratory test that measures the effectiveness of the ventilation of the carrying system: a heated and perspiring mannequin is used to scientifically and objectively measure the pack's capacity to reduce perspiration. This label is only given to packs that perform significantly better than a "basic" model in the range (without any particular cooling system). We also compare them with rival products on the market.
outer fabric: 100% PES; inner fabric: 100% PA; padding: 100% polyurethane.
"So what's so good about all the backpacks we have tested?First of all, the pockets can be moved sideways!" (Eliane), "The top pocket with its winders is great!" (Luc, Francis, Patrick), "Access is so easy, and it clips together well" (Stéfanie) (Trekking field test, September 2007).
All our backpacks undergo use tests carried out by users who represent the target market in conditions similar to those found in typical use. Our "Mission Tests" team up the product manager with people who are not affiliated with QUECHUA, in order to test, improve, and validate our products.
Store your bag in a dry place.
To ensure backpack fabrics retain all their initial properties (waterproofing in particular), do not machine wash, do not tumble dry, do not dry clean, do not use bleach. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush if necessary. After a few years, you can refresh the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.
