We place importance on the resistance to friction so that your bag is durable. The heavy stitching R&D department, Quechua's partner for researching and testing its components and assembly, carries out tests (on the components, seams and finished product) simulating backpack ageing. As a result of these tests, we can guarantee all bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
DON'T THROW IT, FIX IT!
You can take this products on all your mountain hikes. As you progress, they age. Some parts may wear out or break. To make repair easier, we offer tightening buckles and a chest bar compatible with your bag in the “Bag / hiking trek accessories” department. Don't throw it, fix it!
WHAT DIFFERENCES ARE THERE WITH THE OLD MH500 BAG?
The back of this new bag has been fully reworked for greater comfort: a tight net with frame gives you more space between your back and the bag to reduce the damp back effect. This net used for the back, called mesh, is also softer than previously. What's more, this new model comes in 2 sizes for small and large sizes. The 2 hip pockets are more spacious and stretchy and access to flask on the sides is easier.
WHY 2 SIZES?
During several field test sessions with hikers of different sizes, we noticed that between 20 and 40 litres, the difference in comfort was mainly linked to the back height of the bag: someone with a small frame feels better with a bag that doesn't have a very big back, and someone with a big frame with a larger back. We therefore offer all our models in 2 sizes to meet these requirements.
This bag can hold 1 litre, 2 litre or 3 litre pockets. However, although the pocket is voluminous, it will take up place that could be used for storing other belongings. The side pockets are designed for flasks of maximum 1 litre.
WHY ARE OUR RAIN COVERS ORANGE?
This is a deliberate choice as we believe it's important to stay visible in the mountains, even in fog, in case of any problem. This orange colour has the advantage of being visible from a helicopter. It's also a visible colour on the road if you use your bag when cycling.
When travelling by plane, cabin baggage approved maximum dimensions are 55 x 35 x 25 cm3 (be aware that this can vary according to the airline). This bag can therefore be used for cabin baggage as long as it's not overloaded.
How do I adjust my backpack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - As this bag is small in volume, put the belt around the waist and tighten it. 4 -Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
HOW TO PACK MY BACKPACK?
AT THE BOTTOM of the bag, pack your sleeping material, and heavy material nearer the back. Slide your water pocket into the compartment. AT THE TOP of the bag, store your waterproof jacket and fleece within arm’s reach. In the pockets, you can put your sun cream, maps, cap and sunglasses. Cereal bars or your mobile phone can be stored in the belt pockets for quick access. The straps under the bag can also be used to attach a compact tent.
HOW TO CARE FOR AND WASH A RUCKSACK?
We recommend hand-washing your rucksack. Use soapy, lukewarm water, possibly with a brush, focusing on the areas in contact with the body (shoulder straps, back, waist belt), where you have perspired. This is the best way for the fabric properties to be maintained, in particular the waterproofness. Then rinse well with lukewarm water, dry in a dry place away from direct sunlight (no radiator). Store in a dry place.
