FORCLAZ Repair & Recycling
The FORCLAZ 100 Compact 10L Travel Backpack is one of the lightest, most budget-friendly packable backpacks on the market. FORCLAZ made lots of sacrifices to reduce the weight and costs of making this pack. We’re curious whether the price and weight make it worth it or whether we’ll miss the luxuries of offerings from brands like Matador. Let’s dive in!
The primary pack material is 100% polyester. It’s extraordinarily lightweight and has the feel of ‘90s wind pants. Ask an older family member if you weren’t alive to remember those. They probably still have theirs!
The material has a polyurethane coating on it, although it’s hard to notice that it’s there. The exterior feels like polyester, not much more. With that said, this fabric does an excellent job of keeping your gear dry. It will get wet if you get dumped on, yet it will weather the storm in most conditions.
Since it’s a packable bag, it stays wrinkled for a while, creating pools for water to hang out if you get caught in the rain. Once you’re out of it, give the pack a shake to eliminate any water pooled in nooks and crannies created by wrinkles.
There are only two zippers on this pack—both from KCC. We don’t have much experience with KCC zippers, though they feel adequate. As we continue to test this pack, we’ll update the Usage Timeline below if we have any issues.
The pull on the main compartment zipper is a paracord-like material knotted at the end. It’s easy to grab onto in all weather conditions and doesn’t add much weight to the pack.
We’ve got the Black colorway on hand, and at the time of writing, there’s a Purple colorway available too. FORCLAZ is a Decathalon product, and we’ve noticed that their options and colorways change frequently, so it’s worth checking back to see what’s available.
There’s a black FORCLAZ logo on the front of the pack. It’s secured with a few thread stitches and looks a little DIY. We dig the look, though it might not be for everyone.
Apart from that, there isn’t much happening on the exterior of this backpack. There are no water bottle pockets, external compartments, or loops to attach gear. It’s as simple as it gets and comes in at just 1.6 ounces to make up for it. This thing is wicked light, and we’ll get into how packable it is in a moment.
The shoulder straps on this pack are basic. There’s no padding, aeration, sternum strap, or attachment loops—it’s just a double layer of the thin exterior pack material.
When you cinch the pack tight, there’s a fair amount of leftover strap material. There aren’t any strap keepers, so it just blows in the wind.
The adjuster stays put reasonably well while you’re wearing the pack, although we’ve noticed it moving around a bit when you put on or take off the bag, especially when carrying heavier gear.
The back panel is just as simple as the shoulder straps. There’s no padding, no aeration, and no channels for airflow. Whatever you put inside the back becomes the back panel, so we recommend putting flat, soft items on the back side to ensure your carry is comfortable.
The pack is comfortable, like feathers, when empty or filled with lightweight gear. Once you get into medium weight, the shoulder straps start to dig in slightly. For most uses, it is a comfortable-enough carry. We’ll get into that shortly, though.
Inside The Pack
We’ve got just one secondary compartment to work with, and it’s the stuff sack, too. This minipocket is on the back panel when the pack is in use. It’s pretty small—not even large enough for a modern smartphone. You could slide a wallet or set of keys here, though you’ll feel whatever you slot here on your back since there’s no back panel padding.
To stow the pack in the stuff sack, force all the materials inside. We recommend loading the shoulder straps first because if you leave them until last, the straps like to poke out and get in the way of the zipper track.
The stuff sack has a small logo, a picture of a backpack, so you know what’s inside, and “10L” printed on it. Decathalon and FORCLAZ make a few packable pieces of gear, so the information ensures you know what you’ve got in your hand. There’s a small attachment loop, so you can hook a carabiner or strap through it and clip it onto your pack or sling .
When stowed away, the pack fits into the palm of your hand. You can compress it even more by applying pressure. It will fit in your pocket, sling, or between items in your daypack without much fuss.
Transitioning back into daypack mode, all 10 liters of storage come into play with the main compartment. It’s an ample open space with no organization inside.
It does better with lightweight items because the exterior materials don’t offer much structure. If you were to throw a couple of potatoes inside the pack, the entire thing would look stretched and awkward. The odds are that you won’t do that, though any small and heavy item will have the same effect.
You can fit a good amount of gear inside. However, there isn’t any way to organize the bag once it’s there without using external help from packing cubes, and we feel that defeats the pack’s purpose. It’s a packable daypack to save space; if you need to add packing cubes, you should go with a more heavy-duty packable backpack.
You’re best off using this as a just-in-case daypack for trips where you’re trying to save weight. At 1.6 ounces, you won’t even notice this is in your pack. We wouldn’t recommend using it on a few-mile hike.
Still, for an adventure around a new place, it’s a versatile piece of gear to throw in your pocket or sling just in case you buy something, you want to take off your travel jacket because the weather warms up, or you want to stop at the local market on the way back to the hotel or Airbnb. Plus, at the time of writing, the pack comes in at under $10. If you lose it or it rips, you won’t be out of a ton of cash!
- Extraordinarily light materials are excellent for packability but give us durability concerns
- No padding or aeration to speak of
- At under $10 USD, you’ll be pressed to find a cheaper option
- Materials have held their own—no issues with tears, rips, or abrasions
- Not the most comfortable pack, but it works well for lightweight items
- We worry about the longevity of the hanging loop—but no issues so far

Decathlon Forclaz Trek 100 EasyFit 50L Backpack Review
On a recent overnight in Wyoming’s Wind River Range, I tested the Forclaz Trek 100 Easyfit 50L Hiking Backpack by Decathlon which proved a lightweight and comfortable option.
The thought and care put into designing this pack to make it efficient in terms of both features and function is evident. Here are some of the features that stood out:
I took the Decthalon Forclaz Trek 100 Easyfit 50L Hiking Backpack on a trip to Wyoming’s Wind River Range. I’m always wary when trying new packs out as they often pull and tug at my shoulders, but I was pleased with how the Forclaz sat on hips.
While carrying a heavy set-up with a full rack and rope, the pack comfortably distributed the load in the proper places.
The shoulder straps are adjustable and can be adjusted by sliding them on the aluminum plates on the back of the pack. The red straps on the side of the pack can be pulled while wearing the pack which made for easy adjustment on the trail.
The Forclaz Trek 100 Easyfit 50L Hiking Backpack boasts a thoughtful compartment design. There are five separate compartments in the pack not including the water pouch storage on the side which securely holds a liter bottle. I was most impressed with the center compartment which zips down from the top; this made packing and unpacking gear easy and effortless.
Product prices and availability are accurate as of the date/time indicated and are subject to change. Any price and availability information displayed on Amazon.com at the time of purchase will apply to the purchase of this product.
The compartment on the hip belt was the perfect size for snacks and can hold a phone or small or other small personal items for easy access. It’s also worth mentioning that the water bottle pouch on the side was made to last.
It is made with the same durable material as the rest of the pack and securely holds a Nalgene sized bottle (no need to worry about losing your bottle on those steeper, scrambly sections).
Overall, I appreciated the simplicity of the pack and I truly felt the layout of the compartments made organizing gear a smooth and satisfying process. The Forclaz Trek 100 Easyfit 50L Hiking Backpack is a lightweight pack that is an ideal option for anyone looking for a comfortable pack for a weekend backpacking trip. The pack can be purchased here from Decathlon for an astoundingly reasonable price of $109.00 .
This pack is well worth the money. The Easyfit design feature allows the user to adjust the pack to fit securely, and allows for an enjoyable experience on the trail. This feature along with the compartment design and durable materials make the Forclaz Trek 100 a great addition to any backpacker’s arsenal of packs.

Perfect for my travels
Totally in love with this bag, just perfect for my cycling trips. First of all, it is very beautiful and elegant because it is plain black and anthracite gray, perfect for the city and work, a sporty side that goes with everything. Then, equipped with iron frames on the back, it protects your back from the weight of the bag once the 50 liters are filled. To continue, it is solid, the material of the bag is rather thick and the zippers are solid. It has plenty of pockets and a waterproof cover for the entire bag comes with it. But finally and above all, the must, it is a 6 liter backpack in addition to the 50l, which can be attached on top but also in front of you, and it is so practical when you still want to save space in the large bag we put the little backpack in front of you or also, to balance my loads in front/behind. Finally, this small backpack is completely independent, in the sense that you can use it completely independently of the large 50 liter one. So I put the essentials in it and I take it alone with me, as soon as I want to get rid of the big one without having to take anything out of the big bag (Russian doll system).
Not yet tested in the field
Although there are lighter options, this backpack is balanced, adapts well to the body/back and has plenty of internal and external space. Furthermore, it meets the dimensions of airline luggage.
An exceptional backpack for its price, it accompanies us everywhere from now on, whether for a trip to Tanzania, skiing, for a weekend....
Excellent product, well made, with numerous pockets, trolley-type opening therefore ideal for travel.
roomy backpack with numerous pockets
Super practical opening for travel Product which can even go into the office for plane travel without adding the 6L
Not suitable due to my disability I travel a lot by TGV
Good backpack for traveling by plane, train and bike, practical features. Despite the case option, the contents are still very confusing for me. Overall, not lightweight, but within the framework.
I bought the backpack for a 3 week trip to Japan and it turned out great, I recommend it to anyone! I moved frequently and being able to detach the backpack to leave the main "body" in the various lockers was essential. The backpack is a little heavy, at 2.7kg it was almost 50% of the weight I traveled with, but for the various features it's worth it.
Since this trip was quite difficult, it took three days and two nights from Jie Maosi to go to Jiaming Lake, so a lot of equipment had to be readjusted. However, I liked the function, appearance, etc. of this product, and I was glad that I made the right choice, so that this trip ended perfectly. ~ ! But it’s a pity that I only saw the introductory video when I rated it now. At that time, my partners helped me adjust it.
good product that offers good value for money
Very practical and comfortable backpack. It allows you to store lots of things thanks to all its storage pockets. Very happy with my purchase, I recommend!

The Moscow Metro Tour is included in most guided tours’ itineraries. Opened in 1935, under Stalin’s regime, the metro was not only meant to solve transport problems, but also was hailed as “a people’s palace”. Every station you will see during your Moscow metro tour looks like a palace room. There are bright paintings, mosaics, stained glass, bronze statues… Our Moscow metro tour includes the most impressive stations best architects and designers worked at - Ploshchad Revolutsii, Mayakovskaya, Komsomolskaya, Kievskaya, Novoslobodskaya and some others.
What is the kremlin in russia?
The guide will not only help you navigate the metro, but will also provide you with fascinating background tales for the images you see and a history of each station.
And there some stories to be told during the Moscow metro tour! The deepest station - Park Pobedy - is 84 metres under the ground with the world longest escalator of 140 meters. Parts of the so-called Metro-2, a secret strategic system of underground tunnels, was used for its construction.
During the Second World War the metro itself became a strategic asset: it was turned into the city's biggest bomb-shelter and one of the stations even became a library. 217 children were born here in 1941-1942! The metro is the most effective means of transport in the capital.
There are almost 200 stations 196 at the moment and trains run every 90 seconds! The guide of your Moscow metro tour can explain to you how to buy tickets and find your way if you plan to get around by yourself.
