We are here to help you if you have a question or a problem with your product.
These instructions apply to all models of MT100 trekking bags.
The correct adjustment of your backpack is really important in order to walk in the best possible conditions and not to damage your back.
1/ Loosen all straps and put on the bag
2/ Put on the belt and tighten it
3/ Tighten the shoulder straps
4/ Adjust the load restraints and the chest strap
The EASY-FIT technology is an exclusive and patented solution that allows you to adjust the height of the back and the tension of the shoulder straps of your backpack in a single movement. To see the demonstration and be convinced of this system, see the video in the previous section "How to adjust your MT100 backpack"
Load restraints are straps placed at the top of each shoulder strap of your backpack.
Because of the adjustable back height of your bag (thanks to the shoulder straps), it is necessary to adjust the position of the shoulder strap in relation to the bag to limit its swing. This function is provided by these straps.
To adjust them, once the bag is on your back, the belt is buckled and the shoulder strap tension is adjusted, simply grab the strap of each restraint over your shoulders and pull them forward until you feel the bag return to your back.
To control its stability, you can shrug your shoulders a few times and take up tension if necessary.
You will be carrying your backpack for several days. It is therefore important to organise the loading of the vehicle in such a way as to find a balance between front and back and left and right. This is because your body may tire more quickly if the distribution of your bag is unbalanced.
So, below are our tips on which parts of your equipment should be placed at the bottom, middle and top of your backpack.
All our backpacks are tested to withstand a minimum load of 25kg. However, to ensure the comfort of the MT100, we recommend not to load the bag with more than 20kg. Furthermore, if you are walking for several days and for long periods of time, it is recommended that you do not load your bag with more than 25% of your own weight, i.e. 18kg for a 70kg walker.
At FORCLAZ, as with most manufacturers, our backpacks use water-repellent but not waterproof components. Indeed, designing a 100% waterproof bag requires the sealing of every seam line and the use of very expensive special zips. That's why all our bags are equipped with a protective cover to put over your bag in case of rain.
Decathlon backpacks are designed to be strong and durable and undergo extensive testing (components, seams and finished product) to ensure that they serve you for as long as possible.
We offer a 10-year warranty on all our backpacks from the date on the receipt.
For each model, find all compatible spare parts and accessories to carry out the possible repairs.

REPAIR A HOLE OR TEAR IN YOUR TREKKING BACKPACK
If a small hole has formed on the front or bottom of your bag, you can easily repair it by applying a patch or a piece of adhesive tape (round shape one or two cm larger than the hole). We advise you to apply it on the inside as well as the outside.
If the hole is bigger, go to a cobbler and take advantage of his expertise to give your backpack a second life.
