Arpenaz 10: a technical prowess by Quechua
In the globe trotting backpack family, let us introduce the all new Arpenaz 10. An innovative and a well thought out product resulting from a technical prowess that Philippe Daguillon, our product designer, is going to explain.
The motivation behind this project was to bind a first-prize product (2.95€) to a high-tech hiking backpack with a 10-year guarantee. To succeed in developing this product, we had to optimize the fabric’s consumption and to reduce the production time.
On the basis of a first prototype (1), and after a lot of debates, our teams find the solution: sew all the components of the backpack with a single seam (2). One this technical patented, few pencil strokes were enough for Philippe to give life to the Arpenaz 10 backpack (3).
With this short interview of Philippe, go through the whole reflexion process and the main criteria of the conception we took into account to develop this high-tech hiking backpack with a lot of colors and that allows you to transport everything you need for short hikes.
