Sac à dos

Bonjour, à l’usage le sac à dos est plutôt confortable et bien logeable. Pour des épaules féminines les bretelles sont un peu large au niveau supérieur de la couture d’attache ce qui les fait glisser en dehors des épaules à l’occasion. Je viendrai prochainement faire faire l’ajustement des sangles des bretelles.
