How to fill your backpack?

- Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece within easy reach;
- In the small compartment, place your everyday items, electronic devices, card, sun cream, glasses, etc.;

How to adjust your backpack?

The components of the bag are water-repellent so that you can temporarily continue walking/hiking in light rain.
Caution: this backpack is not watertight/waterproof and it does not have a rain cover.
If you want to continue walking/hiking in the rain and protect your belongings, we recommend the following model: "10 to 20 L rain cover", which can be viewed on our website, item reference 8772113.
How is volume measured?
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standard 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.
Tested for optimum durability and strength
We carry out several laboratory tests to validate the bag's components: fabric, buckles, straps, foam, zips. For example, for a fabric, we test the resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour fastness when exposed to UV light and washing, and waterproofing. We also conduct tests to check the resistance of assembly using a dummy that reproduces the movements of a hiker to replicate several years of wear and tear on the bag.
Your opinion is important to us!
Thanks to your feedback, we have improved the design and concept of our backpack.
This bag has been tested by many hikers and has enabled us to test its functions and make some improvements.
On this new model, we have added a double zip on the main pocket, a side pocket as well as a reinforced base to support you in the countryside.
