    Product feature
    1. Backpack technical tests
      Backpack components are approved in laboratory tests, includingfabric, 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 then reproduces the movement of fast walking through thousands of cycles
    2. 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 these balls into a graduated container, which gives the equivalent volume in litres.
    3. A score for comparing products' environmental impact
      The product's environmental impact is calculated across its entire life cycle using different indicators. An overall ABCDE score is attributed to help you more readily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing the same type of product (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.) Decathlon is voluntarily committed to visually displaying environmental information.

      Response of the brand
      Hello Anket Mohanty,

      Thank you for your feedback on the Arpenaz 20 Ultra Compact bag.

      Just to reiterate on the usage of the backpack, it is designed mainly to carry light things around the camp site or as a small additional backpack. They are not ideal to carry cameras as the lens might poke the seams and could rip them apart when under pressure. I would suggest you also to refer to the camera bag by Quechua if you are looking for one.

      First I thought I was wrong about buying this bag coz it was light in weight & I thought it wouldn't carry much weight but after using it I really like it. worth buying it
      Can be folded and kept as a small bag

      I bought this rucksack for its compact size which is genuinely pocketable and so can be taken anywhere. The material is thin and lightweight but appears quite tough. To test its claim to be waterproof I filled the sack with crumpled paper and rolled and clipped the top as recommended, I then gave it a good dousing from a hosepipe. I was surprised to see the water just roll of and after a good shake opened it up to discover the contents to be dry though care should be taken when unrolling the top as water can gather here. So yes it is waterproof provided the roll top is fastened correctly but due to its light weight I doubt whether it would remain so if submerged though I have not tested this. Overall I am very impressed with this sack which is comfortable to wear due to the close spacing of the shoulder straps (unlike some rival products which are also much more expensive) I can't comment on durability as I have not had the sack long but as an occasional sack I feel sure that it will meet all expectations. For the price this offers excellent value. Well done Quechua.
      Compact, waterproof, comfortable.
      Would benefit with an external drinks pocket
