Easy adjustment : FIRST, LOOSEN all the straps (shoulder straps, belts, load adjuster straps). PUT THE BACKPACK ON. For backpacks with a capacity of 50 L or more, PLACE THE HIP BELT CORRECTLY (over the pelvis) and FASTEN IT. For smaller backpacks, the hip belt should be placed around the waist. TIGHTEN THE SHOULDER STRAPS. Finally, ADJUST THE LOAD ADJUSTER STRAPS to suit you.
How to pack a backpack : Put your bedding at the bottom. Put heavy gear (tent, portable stove, food) close to your back. Pack your clothes around these items. The groundsheet should be placed under the flap; and the tent beneath the pack if there is no space inside. Keep a rainproof jacket and fleece close to hand. Small items for daily use (sun cream, map, glasses...) should be placed in the pockets. A water bladder may be placed in the compartment generally found along the back.
Care Instructions : To ensure backpack fabrics retain all their initial properties (waterproofing in particular), do not machine wash, do not tumble dry, do not dry clean, do not use bleach. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, use warm soapy water and a brush if necessary. After a few years of use, you can refresh the fabric's water repellent properties using a waterproofing spray.
How to adjust the height : Position the adjustment at the appropriate estimated height, then adjust the bag (see "How to adjust a backpack"). With the belt on your pelvis, the straps should go round the front part of your shoulders, and the load adjuster straps (sometimes also height-adjustable) at an angle of around 45° (they must not go horizontally or vertically). If the back seems too short or too long when trying it on, readjust and try again until you are satisfied.
