All our backpacks are tested in the field by users who are representative of the target market under the same conditions as those you will encounter in use. Our Mission Tests bring together the product manager with people who are not affiliated with Quechua to test, develop and approve the products.
We conduct laboratory tests to validate all the components: fabrics, buckles, straps, foam padding and zips. For example, for a fabric: resistance to wear, tearing, colour-fastness under UV rays, 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 loaded with weights and placed on a dummy which then reproduces thousands of fast walking movements.
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. The tests focused on components, seams and the end product. As a result of these tests, Quechua can guarantee all the bags tested for a duration of 10 years from the date of purchase indicated on the sales receipt.
10-year warranty, conditions
The warranty covers any backpack faults, except those caused by normal wear and tear and improper use. The product and sales receipt will be required for a claim under this special 10-year warranty to be valid. If the product is covered by the warranty, it will be repaired or exchanged for free. This sales warranty does not affect any statutory rights applicable in the country of purchase.
How is the 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?
Position the bag at the correct height and adjust it. With the belt on your hips, put the straps around the front part of your shoulders. The load adjuster straps (which are sometimes also height-adjustable) must be at an angle of around 45°. When trying it on, if the back seems too short or too long, readjust and try again until you are satisfied.
The Easyfit system
It is possible to adjust your backpack in a single intuitive step to fit your body shape while it is on your back: all this is for maximum comfort.
How to adjust your Forclaz EasyFit backpack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, hip belt, load adjuster straps). 2 - Put the backpack on. 3 - Place the belt on the hips (it should go around the hip bones) and tighten it. 4 - Tighten the shoulder straps. 5 - Pull the Easyfit straps and the strap block will go around your shoulders. 6 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed.
EasyFit effectiveness tests are carried out by our Research and Development teams
User-friendly concept: adjustment time is actually 2 to 3 times quicker with the Easyfit backpack and the number of corrections = 0 for the Easyfit bag. The EasyFit system does not affect the quality of the adjustments when compared with a standard adjustment system: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable on a 4% Friedman statistical test, users also noted better adjustments 6 times more often.
How to pack a backpack?
Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear (tent, camp stove, food) near your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should be placed under the flap and the tent beneath the pack if there is no space inside. 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 hydration pack (water bladder), this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
Oxylane and Quechua have chosen to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpack products over the entire life cycle. This work follows an experiment completed in July 2011 with the French Ministry of Ecology. Scores ranging from A to E were awarded based on comparisons between Quechua's backpacks only. Details on this project and the calculation methods used are available at http://www.oxylane.com/20/demarche-environnementale
To maintain the materials' properties (especially waterproofing), do not machine wash, tumble dry, dry-clean or bleach your backpack. 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 should restore the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproof spray.
