Our backpacker-designers created this compact bag for carrying the items you need for a one-day trip An ultra-lightweight, discreet and compact bumbag-style belt pouch. Can be folded up and stored in a backpack pocket.
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 to find out the equivalent number of litres.
Backpack technical tests
We conduct laboratory tests to approve the components:
fabrics, buckles, straps, foams, zips, etc. For example, for a fabric:
resistance to abrasion and tearing, colour fastness in UV light and after washing, waterproofing, etc.
Then the finished product undergoes an accelerated test replicating the stresses on the bag over several years to test the strength of the assemblies. The pack is filled with weights and placed on a dummy that replicates thousands of cycles of a fast walking motion.
