Nice Day sack

After taking this out a few times i can say it’s a nice bag and worth the price. The zip down the front is handy and I think overall is well made. The water bladder hook could have been better thought of and maybe even put in between the mesh so save room inside( like the more expensive brands). I have checked and you can place a water bladder in the mesh between yourself and the bag and it will be pretty secure and solid and shouldn’t pinch or burst. The side pockets are ok for water bottles as the straps hold them in place but you won’t be able to get them out on the move. Comfy to wear for long periods and light.

A great rucksack for day hikes

Really enjoy using this rucksack. Good price and comfortable for my day hikes.

Almost the perfect backpack

The major flaw for me is the lack of sufficient protection on the base so when placing it down on rugged terrain its rubbing on some very thin material, already after a handful of times its looking worn and very dubious area. Secondly, these are more nice to haves, the side pockets are high so when storing water bottles for accessing whilst on a hike, you have to push the limits of your arms to get it out. The rear pocket is stretchy, useful for storing outer layers but after 3 times of use this has become stretched and baggy.

A brilliant rucksack

This like all the other rucksacks I have bought from decathlon is brilliant. Fantastic design roomy

Good features but poor design

I was a bit disappointed by the design. The metal frame reduces the space inside the bag for large items. The quality looked good but I returned as it wouldn't work for me.

Very Good Product

Good item

Good for a days hike

Good for a days hike or a night camp the only thing that irritates is that it does not have open water bottle pocket but if you have a bladder you're on to it otherwise you will have to look for one

Backpack technical tests

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 in UV light, 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 reproduces the movement of fast walking, repeated thousands of times.

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. These tests focused on the features, seams and the finished product in addition to field tests with our users. 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 warranty covers all 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 product and sales receipt. If the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This commercial warranty does not affect any statutory warranties 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.

How to adjust your backpack?

1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load tension straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - For backpacks with a 40-L capacity or more, place the belt on the hips (it should encompass the iliac bones of the pelvis) and tighten. For smaller backpacks, the belt should be placed around the waist. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Adjust the load tension straps as needed.

How to pack a backpack?

Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy materials near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close at hand. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a water bladder, this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.

Environmental measures

The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE mark is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing similar products to each other (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc). Decathlon is committed to displaying the environmental data of its products. For more info:
