In this video we are taking a detailed look at an underrated budget backpack Quechua Forclaz 40 Air. This backpack is made for comfort. The back panel is spaced about 3cm from your back by a polyester mesh with 6 foam spacing blocks. This allows air to circulate and keeps your back from getting sweaty during the trek. The padded hip belt is amazing. It comfortably puts most of the weight on your hips rather than on your shoulders, which is important when you’re carrying a heavily loaded backpack for a long time. The shoulder straps are also well padded. The backpack is very easy to access. It’s a top loader backpack, but there’s
a two-way zipper on the front of the pack. From where you can access the main compartment without taking out all of your stuff. The main compartment is one big space with just one internal pocket directly against the back panel. That pocket is meant for water bladder, but it can fit an 11 inch laptop. There are long zippered compartments on both side of the pack,
these are expandable. with that it has mesh pockets for carrying bottles. The top compartment is ideal for items that you need readily accessible like jacket or camera. Under-side of it there is a thin zipped mesh compartment for documents. On top of that it has elastic straps that allow you to attach a sleeping mat or tent. It also has a little pocket for carrying your smartphone, map and compass. It comes with a rain cover to help you keep your stuff dry when walking in the rain but the material used for this backpack is bit waterproof. It will do the job until you put on it’s rain cover. The Quechua Forclaz 40 Air is an excellent hiking backpack for shorter trips that don’t require cooking, camping, or heavy outdoor gear. It’s size is just about perfect. The backpack was not meant for an urban backpacker as it does not have lockable zippers or any security system. These things aside, the Quechua Forclaz 40 Air is best choice for minimalist backpacker. and for about the price of $100, it’s worth.
