As you probably know I have traveling plans for the nearest future, and once I graduate I want to travel the world on my gap year. This is the reason I wanted to invest in a backpack that will last quite some time. A backpack that it is comfortable, carry on bag, has a good structure and it’s not out of my budget. I searched some and found that the Fairview or Fairpoint 40 was the preferred bag of every travel blogger on Earth. I tried to find one, but it was an impossible mission. So I went straight to Decathlon, if you are currently in Europe it will be easy to find one, and bought the new Forclaz 40 air+ backpack, from Quechua.
This is my review. I bought the edition specially designed for a woman’s body. Remember, you can use any backpack but women’s packs have a shorter torso range, are narrower and shorter.Women’s hipbelts are shorter and sometimes canted differently. And I saw the difference when I tried both. The price is the same for both packs.
40 liters. Enough to count as a carry on and save some bucks but big enough for long trips if you pack light (you should)
weight: 1325 g
Filled dimensions: H 68 cm x W 30 cm x D 25 cm. If you don’t fill it completely it will pass airfare restrictions, since when you carry bags at your bag they do not trend to measure the bag.
- Main compartment that opens quite like a suitcase
- another big pocket
- a middle net pocket (see through)
- two mesh side pockets,
- a top pocket
- a bottom pocket for the bag raincoat
- And two belt expansible pockets.
- Vent. stretch net back (Air Cooling).
- Adjustable padded straps
- ventilated belt.
