Laboratory testing
We carry out laboratory tests to validate all component parts: fabric, buckles, straps, foam and zips. For example, for fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, washing, waterproofing. 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 then reproduces the movement of fast walking over thousands of cycles.

10-year warranty, technical partnership
The heavy stitching research and development department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating backpack ageing. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. As a result of these tests, Quechua 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 any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. This special 10-year guarantee will only be granted upon presentation of the product and sales receipt. If the product is covered by the warranty, 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.

  • I remember picking something like this up from downtown Phnom Penh in Cambodia for $10. Used them as secret Santa's a few years ago. Quality was really good and was disappointed that it didn't take more than 2 with me. These style of backpacks are really good and for $65, it's not too bad at all.

  • This is a small day pack at best, blue mountains hiking or walking around the city

  • Would this count as bulky for the purposes of free delivery?

    I've got a lot of decath gear. Generally pretty good for the price. Pluses for this is rain cover and pockets on belt. Minus, only 20L so be aware of small size, no frame in harness, back length not adjustable. Not really a serious hiking pack. You wont fit a tent and gear in this 'hiking pack' it's way too small. With my ultralight tent and gear and I get by with 38L for an overnight hike. Not saying this is a bad pack, it's just not a big (or even a medium) pack. My 11 year old hikes with a 35L pack. Some of the photos on the site of people hiking with it are clearly wearing the 30L version that is 50% bigger.

    • One of the reviews says "easily holds about 12-15 kilos"… I guess if you just take water then that's true - you could fit 20L of water - but hard to imagine fitting 15kg of general hiking gear.

      • My lunch. lol. Seriously though, I hiked 800km in 45 days with a 12kg pack. It was a pilgrimage, I stayed in pilgrims hostels, so had no sleeping bag or tent. But that filled my 38L pack. This simple harness and 15kgs would become uncomfortable fast.
