LOCATION OF PRACTICE
We conduct laboratory tests to validate the components: fabrics buckles straps foam padding zips etc. For example for a fabric: resistance to wear tearing washing water-resistance and colour-fastness under UV rays. Then a test on the finished product that simulates the kind of treatment to which it will be subjected over several years, to assess the strength of the assembly:the rucksack 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 fabric research and development department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assemblies, conducted tests simulating the ageing of rucksacks. These tests were conducted on the components, seams and finished product. Quechua uses the results to guarantee the bags tested for a period of 10 years, starting from the date of purchase indicated on the receipt.
10-year warranty, conditions
The warranty covers the defects of the rucksack, excluding those resulting from normal wear and improper use. This special 10-year warranty is only valid on presentation of the product and receipt. If the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged free of charge. This commercial warranty does not exclude applicable legal warranties depending on the country and/or State.
How is volume measured?
The volume of each rucksack 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 rucksack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the rucksack on. 3. - For bags of 50 l and more, place the strap on your hips (it should cover the hip bones of the pelvis) and tighten it. For smaller rucksacks, the belt should be placed around the waist. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
How to pack a rucksack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Place the heavy equipment close to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece to hand. In the pockets, place the small equipment that you use during the day (sun cream, map, sunglasses, etc). The water pouch should be placed in the specially designed compartment normally found along the back of the bag.
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire lifespan, using various indicators. An overall score is assigned from A to E to help easily identify the most eco-friendly products by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, rucksacks etc). Decathlon is committed to displaying environmental information about its products. For more information: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
Store the rucksack in a dry place.
All our models are tested by users representative of our target market in conditions identical to those you encounter yourself when using them. We believe that carrying out 'real-life' testing is the only way to design and continuously advance the technical relevance and design of all our Quechua products.
