All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who represent the target market under the same conditions as you would encounter in use. Our Field Test Missions team up our product managers with people not affiliated with QUECHUA to test, improve and validate our products.
We test the bag's resistance to abrasion, wear, its colour fastness under UV rays, after washing and its waterproofing in the laboratory and in the field. Then, the weighted backpack is placed on a mannequin that simulates ageing by replicating thousands of fast walking movements, to check the durability of assemblies. The components (fabrics, buckles, straps, foam, zips, etc.) are also tested separately so that we can guarantee these bags for 10 years.
Store your bag in a dry place.
In order to preserve the fabrics' properties (including waterproofing), do not machine wash, do not tumble dry, do not dry clean, do not bleach. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush, if needed. After a few years of use, you can restore the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproof spray.
