Our backpacker-designers have created this backpack for travelling the world on foot for several weeks with complete peace of mind A bag designed to best meet the needs of backpackers, with large full opening on the back of the rucksack, lockable compartments and removable shoulder bag.
Put your bedding at the bottom. Near your back, place heavy equipment (tent, stove, food). Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet can be placed under the flap; the tent under the bag if there’s no space inside. Keep a waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. In the pockets, place small items for the day (sunscreen, map, glasses...). The water bladder can be placed in the compartment generally located down the back.
The Easyfit system
This patented system allows you to adjust your bag to best suit your body shape intuitively, in a single move, while wearing it: for maximum comfort.
How to adjust your backpack?
To begin, UNTIGHTEN all the straps (shoulder, waist and load adjuster straps). Then put on the bag then PLACE THE BELT ON YOUR HIPS (it must cover the iliac bones on the pelvis) to TIGHTEN IT. Then, PULL the EasyFit PULLS, the strap block will surround your shoulders. Finally, adjust the LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS for perfect fit of the bag.
Tests carried out by our Research and Development departments on the efficiency of the EasyFit system
Ease of design: effective adjustment time 2.3 times shorter with the Easyfit backpack; and number of times you have to readjust = 0 for the Easyfit bag .Does not affect the quality of adjustment compared to a bag with standard adjustment: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable in the Friedmann statistical test, 4%; with 6 times as many backpacks correctly adjusted.
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 the balls into a graduated container, which gives us the equivalent volume in litres, with a tolerance of a few %. The empty weight shown is that of our reference sample. There may be slight variations.
A score for comparing the products' environmental impact
The product’s environmental impacts are calculated over its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is given to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing and contrasting products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon actively promotes this environmental rating initiative. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
The warranty covers backpack faults, excluding those resulting from normal wear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty will only be granted upon presentation of the receipt and the product. If the product is covered by warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged, free of charge. This sales warranty does not affect the statutory rights applicable in your country/State.
Dimensions and weight
Backpack measurements: 63 cm high x 40 cm wide x 32 cm deep. Its weight when empty is 2.41 kg.
In the event of rain
The rucksack has a rain cover, stored in the bottom of the bag. It protects your bag from the rain. Place it over the bag, the straps remain accessible and enable you to continue using your bag under the rain.
Store your bag in a dry, well-ventilated place, away from direct sunlight.
We carry out laboratory and field test the resistance of the bag to abrasion, tearing, colour-fastness when exposed to UV rays, washing and waterproofing. Then a model reproduces the ageing of a packed bag over several years using fast walking movements, over thousands of cycles, to check the durability of assemblies. The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc) are also tested separately, enabling us to guarantee these bags 10 years.
