The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard method: we use small balls to fill the main compartment as well as each pocket. The balls are then emptied into a graduated container in order to determine the equivalent volume in litres, with a margin of error of just a few %

Why are our rain covers grey when some trekkers want them to be brightly coloured?
The grey colour used for the covers of our trekking rucksacks is neutral because it consumes less dye.
The component is made of BITON: this process allows us to lower our CO2 impact and reduce consumption and water pollution in comparison to coloured models.
These small measures demonstrate the commitment of Forclaz to improve the environmental impact of its products.
