I've owned this rucksack for about 5 years now (mine is branded Quechua Escape 70 but it's the exact same bag) and feel compelled to write a review. I have used and abused this - I have walked around 1,500 miles with this on my back with it absolutely BURSTING AT THE SEAMS, it's handled everything I've thrown at it and then some. Long distance hiking, festivals, big shops.... don't mess about, this is the one you want. There are a ridiculous number of pockets/compartments on this (I think I counted 13) which at first seems a bit comical but is really useful when you are living out of a rucksack, it makes it quicker to find what you're after without having to excavate the whole thing. The ONLY damage it has sustained in 5 years of abuse is a small tear in the webbing of one the side pockets, one or two minor tears on the back where it was LITERALLY RUN OVER BY A CAR and one of the zip pull cords came untied. That's the sum total of the damage. Bearing in mind that I have walked THE ENTIRE LENGTH OF GREAT BRITAIN and more with this thing full - abusing it at every opportunity - that's pretty incredible. Being able to have confidence in your equipment is invaluable when you are in the middle of nowhere with your life strapped to your back. Even if it broke tomorrow (it won't, the build quality is INSANE even though it looks very ordinary) I would buy another one in a heartbeat. About the only thing I can fault about is is that the tension straps on the breast, arms and shoulder come undone pretty quickly when the pack is heavy, you need to pull them tight every half a mile or so as you walk along but it's not that big a deal. Even after walking 900 miles doing 20 miles a day with it full (weighing 15kg+ at a guess) my back was fine, I thought I might be doing my back irreversible damage, my legs hurt like hell but my back was fine! Tip: Buy the add-on straps for the bottom that Decathlon sell and you can strap your roll-mat to the bottom. Decathlon: PLEASE never stop making this rucksack!
This is a luggage for travel (hotels/flights) but definitely not a trekking rucksack mostly because a lack of waterproofing and materials durability (which is not even specified but I assume maximum 400D) look at Klattermusen backpacks/rucksacks those are 13% KEVLAR!
This is a fantastic bit of kit! Looks and carries like a Backpack, but loads like a suitcase. The back system is really good and the perfect fit is easily achieved. Also unlike any other backpack I've known, there are zip mesh pockets on either side for those small items that get easily lost amongst what's been packed and shifted, after rummaging for something at the bottom of the bag. Although that isn't an issue either, because the whole back of the bag has a zip surround, meaning everything is easily accessible whether at the top, middle or bottom of the bag. The top of the bag is a bag in itself and separates easily from the main bag. This makes it ideal for trips to the shower block when staying on site. The outer pockets are of a generous size, and ideal for carrying 1l sports bottles. The belt pocket is a good size too with a decent zip allowing it to open fully. This comfortably houses a mobile power pack, and allows a charge lead to be connected to a mobile device whilst on the move. The lower compartment is accessible from both inside and outside of the bag, and at the bottom of the bag there's a pocket for the included cover. This though is no ordinary cover. It also can be used as a separate bag. Again, ideal when on site, and needing to maybe do a bit of laundry. It can also be used to carry the backpack itself over short distances, or when on public transport, so as to avoid the need to carry it awkwardly or struggle in a confined space to put it on. All in all this ticks all the boxes, and I highly recommend it.
Great design and quality of fabrics. A lot easier to access things with the ability to open like a suitcase. Comfortable to wear when full (of clothing). Included raincover is handy for keeping it all together when flying.
Love the ability to open wide the bag. Flexible 10 litres bag. Light weight frame provide adequate support n shape.
after using it a few times, i think it's not very comfortable, the front straps are a bit short and also hurt my shoulders a bit. i also found the top compartment not well designed, as you need to unlock it to open the bag and it always falls down. The hiid part is that it has plenty of space and a lot of internal pockets.
This backpack is best for long and shot traveling. It's space itself is amazing. Much favorite thing abt this bag is that top portion can be detached and can be used as a sidebag. Much happy about the product
The weight distribution is not good. Hurts your shoulder after few minutes. Not good for trekking but alright for normal traveling
Hi, I am backpacker, Hichhiker, camper and trekker. I bought this backpack last year. I use to travel India by hickhike with this bag. Trust me, its worth to buy and use. It carry full of load, nearly 20 kg with best comfort. M loving it.
The product was not as good as thought. Started wearing within a month of purchase. The side are torn and the metal frame is visible.

Its hardly been two months since I bought this, the stitches of the bag is not holding and the cloth material is tearing off from the stitches. Also, the Slot through which the belt passes inside the bag to adjust the height of the bag has worn out and about to cut loose. I certainly doubt the quality of this bag, if this is the condition just within 2 months of usage, it surely wont last long before the belt gets ripped off the bag.
Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are sorry to hear that the quality of the backpack did not last long. I would like to inform you that we run a series of tests on these backpacks to ensure the durability and comfort of our users. The fabric is tested for the resistance. However, this issue could have happened due to a manufacturing defect from our end. We would request you to bring the backpack to any of our stores so that the team could check and assist you with an exchange.
I hope the information is helpful. Kindly write back if you need any assistance.
It's an excellent buy.. enough capacity, easy to carry. The load gets very well balanced out to carry with ease..
I had my sights set on this for over a year, when my old rucksack gave way, I decided to buy this for my road trip. I had planned to carry my camera, chef knives & camp gear which conveniently accommodated all of it. I am never going to buy another brand product!

Put your bedding at the bottom. Place heavy gear near your back (tent, camp stove, food). Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet can be placed under the flap; the tent under the bag if there's no room inside. Keep your waterproof jacket and fleece to hand. Place small items for daily use in the pockets (sun cream, map, glasses, etc.). The water bladder can be placed in the compartment generally provided down the back.
This patented system lets you adjust your backpack in a single intuitive step to fit your body shape while it is on your back: for maximum comfort.
To begin, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, belt, load adjuster straps).Then, put the bag on and PLACE THE BELT ON THE HIPS (it must cover the pelvic bones around the hips) to TIGHTEN.Finally, PULL THE Easyfit STRAPS and the strap block will go around your shoulders.Finally, just ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTERS to get the perfect fit for your back.
User-friendly design: adjustment time is 2.3 times shorter with EasyFit backpacks; with the EasyFit system, you'll never have to backtrack. Does not affect the quality of adjustment compared to a bag with standard adjustment: EasyFit was rated significantly more comfortable on a 4% Friedmann statistical test; users also noted better adjustments 6 times more often.
The volume of each backpack is measured using a standardised method: we fill the main compartment as well as each pocket with little balls. We then empty these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres, with a tolerance of a few %.The weight indicated is that of our benchmark sample. There may be slight variations.
