Review | Quechua Forclaz 60 Rucksack

Guys, last month I got this Forclaz 60L Hiking Rucksack/Backpack by Quechua and first impression was very impressive built quality !! Design looked good too and the space being 60L is more than enough to carry whatever I do for my trip to Himalayas.

The cushioning all around the back and lower back appeared good as I loaded it completely and walked around for a while. The best thing I liked is that it has adjustable back straps, so depending upon your comfort you can adjust it accordingly. There is one strap around chest as well. There are well cushioned stags/sticks to support your back as well and keep the bag linear enough.

It has 1 inner pocket, 3 pockets outside with 2 of them at sidewalls + 1 at the top & there is one small one on the belt as well. So, nice bit of external storage as well. There is one pole carrier too and down hooks as well to attach lower packs or something else may be. There is a horizontal flap inside to keep your things organized in it & since it has two zippers, it provides easy access to that lower compartment.

Well, I did check the Wildcraft version as well but it appeared much more costly in same capacity though it had string upfront as well as drawstring lock rather than the zipper in the Quechua. However, I really liked the build quality of Quechua alot when compared to it.

The disadvantage I see here is that it has a zipper and lacks the strings/loops upfront to attach other things with it which is somehow very much available in many rucksacks. If the upper zipper goes off, though they claim a 10 year durability / guarantee, you have your luggage all wide open. The other zipper though is also supported by a drawstring with a lock. So, it is the lower zipper that poses a bit a risk here 😉

It is priced at Rs 3499 and most of the time you will get some good deals for it over Internet. Just search for the right one for you. You can also buy it from Flipkart and some times there are very good offer from them. You can use the link below to buy them from Flipkart:


I will be able to suggest to go for it or not in terms of practical use once I use it ruggedly over couple of years. But, initial impression looks very solid choice to me. In case, you have also used it or using it or have some feedback or review around it or you have something else to share for rucksacks, please feel free to share here too. In the end, again here is the link of Flipkart from where you can buy it
