I am really surprised that people are saying this bag isn't large enough with the exception if nit being able to get cosmetics in there- once you take the plastic coating off of the mirror it's useable if necessary. I was able to fit a razor, 6pk of cartridges, tooth brush, full new tube of toothpaste, full can of shave gel, full shampoo bottle, bar of soap in full size container, 5 wash cloths, travel size Listerine, small gold bond powder and had enough room for a travel size hair brush.

I might never want to buy another brand. This is handy dandy and was even able to take it for 2 train races and the rest were on airplanes! Dakine is made well and has the right size for me and for any occasion. Bravo! Thank you Zappos.

Great find. I travel about 75 night a year so am picky about travel bags. I was searching for a bag that met these criteria: At least 3 inner zip pockets. Open space to hold my TSA size clear bag and my small makeup pouch. Compact size to fit in a carry on. Hang or sit on counter depending on the space. This bag meets all of the above. As others have mentioned the zippers are a little stiff but that's due to the shape of the bag. Good construction and feels like it's going to last.

The Dakine Cosmo is my all-time favorite everyday bag. Durable, practical, and stylish. I get lots of compliments on this bag. The photo above does not show its size accurately -- it is a small bag suitable as a handbag substitute. I am disappointed to see the color/style/pattern selection currently available. I was looking to replace my current Cosmo, but don't see it available any more. :-(

I was looking for a small weekend purse for baseball games and going to the city without lugging around my LV Speedy and this backpack was perfect! I purchased it in the Lattice Floral pattern which is black with a subtle geometric design so it doesn't look too childish on a 30 year old. It is compact and not bulky but fits quite a bit of stuff. There was a review that mentioned an iPad will not fit but I was able to fit my iPad 2 easily along with my make up bag, checkbook wallet, keys, pepper spray, and sunglasses with room to spare. I love this backpack and have been wearing it around the house like a dork. Thanks to Zappos for the quick and speedy shipping and easy return policy, you guys are seriously the best!

Love the Regatta stripe, but have to return it. Zappos has the length as 22" but the manufacturer label says 23" and including the wheels that is what it measured, putting it over the international limit for my flight. Thought of trying to carry it on anyway, but the idea of a small suitcase is not to check anything so don't want to chance it!

If you're looking for a backpack that separates you from the crowd, then you have found it. Rugged style bag with lots of functionality and ample storage space. The padded tablet sleeve on the front is a great touch as well. The issues with this bag stem from the lack easy access to it's features. The features are accessible, however the top loading pocket does not make organization of the main compartment very simple. Also the bag has a tendency to fold over in an odd fashion unless it is fully loaded. There is some storage space for pens, markers, and other miscellaneous items, but I don't find the upper compartments to be convenient to access either. My 15" Dell Inspirion laptop barely fits and it is a struggle to get the zipper around the corners of the laptop, you have been forewarned not all 15" laptops will fit. Another complaint would be that books and folders tend to snag on the velcro strap that keeps the computer in place. This backpack is exceedingly narrow, the majority of the 30L comes from the length of the pack, it is quite a struggle to get a water bottle and a coffee thermos into the side pockets. Overall I am satisfied with the backpack, I am willing to accept it's shortcomings and quirks because I truly like the way it fits and the overall appearance.

I purchased this bag and it was super adorable in person. Unfortunately I did not measure the screen width and my laptop was 15 1/4" so it would not fit in the bag! Make sure to measure length, width, height and diagonally across your laptop screen for the right measurements!

I love this pack! Perfect for carrying a phone, some snacks, a book, and a bottle of water. Lots of little compartments. The size is perfect, not too big, not too small. However, I've had the pack for less than two months, and it's already falling apart; holes around the zipper, the fabric is printed and not woven, so the color is fading quickly. I was surprised, as Dakine is usually high quality.

The bag itself is really nice. I purchased the patchwork camo design, but the colors seemed more muted than they are in the picture.

It's a solidly made bag with lots of room. The skateboard holding area is reinforced so the grip doesn't shred the bag. It's also pretty comfortable, even when it's heavy. I'd definitely recommend it.

Looks cool and is well made but I do not recommend it as an elementary backpack. It's not right for my 10-year-old. The straps are pretty wide apart and, due to her small stature, the spacing of the straps at the top where it rests on her neck is not comfortable.

I went with the Dakine line for my kids back packs for 1 main reason. Son used a Dakine Duffle bag for his portable school locker for 2 years. ALL of his high school books, boy things, gym clothes, and lunch went into this bag for 2 years. It held up BEAUTIFULLY. He could still use it but wanted to go to a back pack this year. It is the best money I have spent. If you hold the bag with all the books in it, it is very heavy BUT if you put it on your back, for what ever reason it seems lighter. My daughter also has a Dakine back pack and is equally as wonderful. They love all of the compartments. They also love the fact that they can take their lunch in it and don't have to use a lunch bag. The cooler part works great. Would definitely recommend this back and brand to everyone.

I purchased this bag as a gift. It was as featured and was what I wanted for my daughter who travels overseas. She was very pleased with the gift.

Dakine Luggage is the best! It is amazingly durable and functional but also looks great. The thing about Zappos is, you can purchase one piece of Dakine or a full set which is what I needed. This was my first Zappos purchase and it was great, fast and accurate. I recommend both.

I've only had this pack for 2 months but it has accompanied me as a carryon for 6 flights. It is a thick bag on the back, so the backpack straps only come out for use when I'm pulling wheeled suitcases as well. Bottom line: If you're looking for a bag which will allow you to neatly organize clothes, tech, documents, and toiletries in order to breeze through the concourse without waiting at the carousel, this is a good option.

I love Dakine bags because they're so durable and they look pretty cool also. I liked this bag because it's small enough to bring on a plane but big enough to fit in lots of things. The one thing I was confused about was the bottom panel is velcroed down on 3 out of 4 sides...maybe it's for cleaning?
