The guarantee covers any 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 receipt and the product, and if the product is covered by warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged, free of charge. This commercial guarantee does not affect any statutory guarantees that are applicable in the country/state of purchase.
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.
Because when you hike, you must wear your equipment, we think about lightness.
Here at Quechua, we design our products in such a way that they are always lighter and guarantee great freedom of movement.
Our environmental approach here at Quechua
Because we are aware that we must act to preserve our playground, Quechua is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its products.
Today, this product is not eco-designed, but we work every day to make it more responsible: eco-design, repairability and sustainability are at the heart of our developments.
Product design: our expertise
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing your mountain walking products and providing you with all our expertise.
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.
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
When you are travelling by plane, the authorised hand luggage size is 55x35x25cm3 maximum (warning, this can vary depending on the airline).
