Great quality for the price. Colors on screen are pretty true to the actual bag. Great size for a 1-2 night getaway. And it's also within the dimensions to use as a carry-on bag for flying.

Might as well throw your stuff in a pillow case. This bag is absolute junk. The bag has no bottom liner, no protective feet and no corner protectors on the bottom. Sent it back. Thank goodness for Zappo's two-way shipping.

Great bag. It's essentially just a duffel with an extra zipper compartment on one end. It doesn't have any stiff areas, it's very flexible like most duffels. It fits quite a bit of stuff, too. I used it as my carry-on for a 5 day trip and it held all my clothes, toiletries, etc. just fine. On larger planes it can even fit under the seat in front of you if it's not overstuffed. The strap is comfortable for a while but might get a little tiring after a 20 minutes or so. This is true of most straps though. The bag looks great, in my opinion. I went with the Northwood color which is a little more fun than standard black, but not so crazy it'll have people staring at you.

Bag looks great with the subtle pattern, lots of room to stow gear, and high quality materials. I use it as a triathlon transition bag, works way better than a lot of the bizarre backpacks they make for that specific purpose. Plus it can be used as a travel bag if you are gone for just a couple days.

I love these bags! It fits my kids snowboarding boots, helmets, gloves and extra socks. I bought one for each child. Small enough that they can carry themselves. Love it!

This bag is very nice. I like the construction & features. I also like the fact that you can place a small lock through the zippers for a little bit of security. I would buy it again.

Super cool and big enough for all my stuff. At first when I saw it I didn't think I could fit all my stuff, but it being 11 by 11 by 22 it's more than enough.

If your looking for simple yet very well made this is the bag for you. The only downfall to this bag is the shoulder strap. You can't adjust the part that goes on your shoulder (doesn't slide). Other than that I love it.

Good Bag - Good- sturdy bag, straps/handles, looks cool, more storage than I first thought. Bad- should have end pockets on both ends, should have a internal cardboard base like adidas bags.

Zappos does a great job in describing their products with the text and pictures and all. All of my orders have pretty much been just as described, and I have never been taken by surprise. I have three Dakine EQ bags and think its design is top notch for throwing things in and keeping them covered. I don't see the need for an additional side pocket because it would make the main compartment too small. I like being able to fit bigger items like my helmet or a jacket.

Awesome bagged. Used it as a carry on bag for a flight on a 9 day trip. I was able to fit a lot more than I thought and not have to check in the bag. Pretty awesome.

Love the bag. Love the name Rasta, only thing that I would add is something that would keep the bottom flat. Sturdy piece that would flatten out the bottom.

Bought this bag for weekend trips and have used it a few times so far. You can fit a ton of stuff in here. Plenty of room for everything for a long weekend trip, even enough room for all my ski gear for a weekend. The first time I used it was for a weekend trip to Chicago to visit friends and I was able to fit all my stuff for the weekend including a pillow and blanket. I like the padded shoulder strap and heavy duty zippers. Also the handles on the ends make it easy to get in and out of the trunk.

Got this for a trip to Africa where we needed soft sided bags that fit into airplane overheads. Haven't done the trip yet, but have taken the bag on some other jaunts and it holds much more than one would expect. Seems solidly constructed and I like the U shaped opening for easy access and visualizing.

Got the 51l bag it is perfect for a 3-4 day trip. We used it on our beach vacation it was perfect a few pr shorts a pair of jeans, shirts, or of shoes and my Dakine toiletries bag that is perfect. The bag and zipper are heavyweight so I will have this bag well into the future.

I love my Dakine EQ Bag 51L. I use it for my gym clothes every day. The colors are bright and cheerful. I plan to use it when I go to Costa Rica as my carry on luggage. I have received many compliments about how beautiful my bag is, and most people don''t even look at other people's bags.

Love this bag. It held everything I needed for a 3 day trip and that was everything in duplicate because we were xc skiing in the am and dining in the pm. Very easy to carry fully packed over the shoulder. And the color is great.

Very nice bag. I was worried the 51L size wouldn't be large enough for a weekend trip, but it was. I fit a dress shirt, two pairs of jeans, a sweater, two t-shirts, socks/underwear, one pair of shoes, toiletries, and even a smaller bag with my tablet/accessories ALL inside this bag. I was very impressed. It wasn't stressed or overly bulging, either.

This is the perfect size for a 4 day weekend bag. I am female but I liked this color better than the female ones so I got it. I've taken it on weekend trips with extra clothes and shoes and had plenty of room without it being too big. So glad I bought it.

I've been waiting a while to buy a new overnight/gym bag. I found this while on vacation and immediately ordered it on Zappos. The material seems a little flimsy at first, but it's well put together and spacious.

Excellent sports bag! A perfect size that is very spacious and light weight. The shoulder strap is padded but it can get uncomfortable at times. Personally, I love the striped pattern of the bag.
