How is the volume of a bag 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 with a margin of a few %. empty weight indicated is that of a benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
How to pack a backpack : Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent camp stove food) near the back. Pack your clothes around these items. The ground sheet can 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 frequently-used items (sunscreen map glasses etc.) in the pockets. If carrying a hydration pack (water bladder) this should be placed in its special pocket along the back.
How to adjust the height : Set the bag for the height you think will be correct and then adjust it (see "Adjusting your backpack"). With the belt on your pelvis put the straps around the front part of your shoulders and the load adjuster straps (which are sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45 degree. (They should never be horizontal or vertical.). When trying it on if the back seems too short or too long readjust and try again until you are satisfied.
Backpack technical tests. : Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests including fabric buckles webbing foam zips etc. Fabrics are tested for resistance to wear tearing colour-fastness in UV rays washing waterproofing etc. 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 weighted then placed on a dummy which reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles.
How to adjust your backpack. : FIRST LOOSEN all straps (shoulder straps belt load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more PLACE THE HIP BELT CORRECTLY (it should sit over the pelvis) and TIGHTEN IT. For smaller backpacks the hip belt should be placed around the waist. TIGHTEN THE SHOULDER STRAPS. Finally ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS as needed.
Care Instructions : To ensure materials retain their properties (especially waterproofing) we recommend you 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.

Environmental protection : A rating - CO2: 5.7 kg; Resource depletion: 41.9 g Sb -Details: oxylane.com.Oxylane together with Quechua has decided to inform you of the environmental impact of its hiking backpacks over their entire lifespan. This work follows an experiment that began 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.
