Our design team of trekking enthusiasts created this carry bag for holding your belongings so that you can offload while walking. This carry bag can be worn on the back with straps or over the shoulder. It allows you to store extra walking items and offload on a donkey or in a 4WD.
We carry out lab tests to validate all elements:fabric, buckles, straps, foam & zips. For example, for fabric:resistance to abrasion & tearing, colour-fastness in UV light, resistance to washing, waterproofing, etc. Then, a test is conducted on the finished product replicating the accelerated demands on the backpack over a number of years to check the strength of the assembliesthe backpack is weighted, then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking over thousands of cycles
How is 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 the balls into a graduated container which gives us the equivalent number of litres.
Store in a dry and dark place for long-term storage
At DECATHLON, our products are tested by a panel of users in the use conditions for which they were designed. At FORCLAZ, these tests are organised on the mountains, led by a team of engineers from our design centre, who are responsible for this mission. Our product managers, engineers and the entire team use the results of these tests to develop and create technical products to ensure the satisfaction of our customers
