To ensure fabrics retain all their properties (water repellent properties in particular), do not machine wash, do not tumble dry, do not dry clean, do not use bleach. Do not iron. To clean your backpack by hand, you are advised to use warm soapy water and a brush if necessary. After a few years, you can refresh the water repellent properties of the fabric using a waterproofing spray.

How do I adjust my Backenger 1st 20L?
For an easy transition from a shoulder bag to a backpack, adjust the Backenger so the top part is level with your hip when worn as a shoulder bag. To adjust: remove excess length of strap from pocket and slide it into the rung; adjust the Backenger to your size. Finally, place the remainder strap into the pocket specifically designed for this purpose.
