We take care over abrasion resistance to make your bag durable.
The heavy clothing R&D department, a Quechua partner for the research and validation of its components and assemblies, performs tests (on components, seams and the finished product) simulating the ageing of backpacks.
Their results allow us to guarantee the bags tested for 10 years from the purchase date shown on the receipt.
DON'T THROW IT, FIX IT!
Our products will join you on your mountain walks.
As you progress, they age, and some parts can get worn or break.
To make repairs easier, in the "Bag accessories / hiking trekking", we sell tightening buckles and chest clips that are compatible with your bag. Don't throw away, repair !
WHICH WATER BLADDER?
There is a compartment in the bag to place a water bladder (there is also a hole to let the tube out).
The water bladder is not included in this rucksack, but you can buy a 1, 2 or 3 litre one in store.
TIP: MOVABLE FRONT POCKET
Our model comes with a movable front pocket. Depending on your body shape, it can be really useful to move your pocket to the front using the rip-tab so that it's accessible and doesn’t annoy you on the sides when hiking.
This bag is NOT waterproof. If you want to protect your belongings from the rain, you can buy a “20 to 40 litre” rain cover, viewable on our website (reference 8734213).
When you are travelling by plane, the authorised hand luggage size is 55x35x25cm3 maximum (warning, this can vary depending on the airline).
This bag can be used as hand luggage, so long as you don't load the top too much.
How do I adjust my backpack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on.
3 - As this bag is small in volume, put the belt around the waist and tighten it. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps.
5 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed
How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Place the heavy equipment close to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece to hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. The water bladder can be placed in the compartment generally provided down the back.
HOW TO CARE FOR AND WASH A RUCKSACK?
We recommend hand-washing your rucksack. Use soapy, lukewarm water, possibly with a brush, focusing on the areas in contact with the body (shoulder straps, back, waist belt), where you have perspired.
This is the best way for the fabric properties to be maintained, in particular the waterproofness.
Then rinse well with lukewarm water, dry in a dry place away from direct sunlight (no radiator). Store in a dry place.
