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.
How to adjust your backpack?
1 - Loosen all the straps (straps, belt, load adjuster straps)
2 - Put on the backpack
3 - Tighten the shoulder straps
4 - Adjust the load adjuster straps as needed
How to fill your backpack?
Put your heavy items at the bottom. Pack your clothes around these items. Keep your waterproof jacket and/or fleece within arm’s reach. Place small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses, etc.) in the pockets. The water bladder will be placed in the compartment provided along the back, and the water bottle in the outer flask holder pockets provided for this purpose.
Developed thanks to your feedback, tested with hikers
This bag was designed thanks to all the customer feedback and hikers' observations.
Indeed, the idea is to separate and keep your picnic cool when hiking, while separating it from other belongings (clothing, wallet, telephone, etc.).
This bag has been tested by many hikers and has enabled us to test its functions and make some improvements.
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.
We have reduced our environmental impact on this product
Dyeing textiles requires a lot of water and discharges wastewater into the environment.
To reduce this impact, we use the following two dyeing processes:
1. We don't colour the interior fabric.
2. We use mass pigmentation adding the colour pigments when the yarn is produced for the dark grey outer fabric.
This is still not enough and we are working to make this product eco-designed
