Dakine

Dakine Logo
In 1979, Rob Kaplan began manufacturing the DaKine® Leash in Haiku, Maui, Hawaii. The DaKine surf leash was designed for rigorous Hawaiian conditions and set the standard for innovative design and high quality. After this innovative breakthrough, DaKine started to build on its reputation by building technical surfing and windsurfing accessories, such as in 1980, when pro windsurfers asked Rob to help build footstraps for their new wave boards. Throughout the early 1980s, DaKine developed the 1st adjustable footstrap, seat harness, and waist harness, defining the company as the leading innovator in technical windsurfing accessories.

DaKine moved their manufacturing and operations to Hood River, OR in 1986; besides being a popular windsurfing location on the mainland, it´s also a gathering place for the best professional snowboarders looking to ride on Mt. Hood. In 1989, after proving themselves as leaders in surf accessories, gear, and bags, DaKine committed to the rapidly expanding snowboard market with board accessories, board bags, and gear bags. By using their commitment to unique designs, high quality, and the desire to stay true to the spirit of the sport, the company would become the world leader in this market over the next 15 years.

Throughout the 1990s, DaKine moved into the snowsports glove category with a modest three styles, and has now expanded that line to close to 70 models today. In 1996, DaKine introduced the Heli Pack, which helped create the new category of minimalist technical backcountry day packs. In 1998, DaKine sought to surpass the Heli Pack and introduced the Heli Pro. In a short time, the Heli Pro becomes the standard for technical daypacks as well as the sport's best selling (and most copied) model. Also around this time, DaKine moved into skate specific packs, such as the Park Pack, which quickly became known for its innovation and durability.

A true leader in the world of bags, packs, and accessories, DaKine has also built a reputation in the travel category, whether it is board sport specific carriers or luggage. After celebrating its 25th anniversary in 2004, DaKine continues to pride itself on developing products for the top professionals in every board sport and building its reputation for innovation and quality for over a quarter of a century.

Dakine makes very high-quality backpacks, and this is no exception. Roomy but not too huge, good internal organization, comfortable to wear. My major gripe is that the two smaller front pockets have single-pull zippers, not double, which makes it just a bit harder to zip them closed if, for example, you have only one hand free. I wish they'd restore the double zip pulls, everything else is so well organized. Oh, and the other thing I like, a lot, is that Dakine offers such attractive prints! So many other brands only feature drab, boring colors, it's nice to have something with a little more zing.

Love Dakine luggage. Perfect combo between hard shell on one side and duffel bag like on the other side. I have the larger 110L I use when I travel with me and my two kids, but needed something smaller for just me! This is the perfect size for a week long solo trip. Love the black and white Aztec print too!! Dakine products for life!!

love these mittens. they are so warm and are perfect for snowboarding. the liner glove is touch screen responsive which isn't noted above. great buy...I've had mine for years and hubby finally just got a pair, making the switch over to mittens out of hand-warmth envy.

Great bag for "personal item" on those restrictive airline flights. Actually folds up into the pocket for storage (bags like this almost never ACTUALLY go back into the pocket once you unpack them, but this one does!) and the grey w blue is a great classy unobtrusive color. Also love that it has the side pocket when using for travel to allow seperation of items. The top opening is fantastic, so much better than a straight zipper, making it easy to live otu of when in use. Perfect bag for short trips.

These are GREAT backpacks. My daughter uses the Dakine prom backpack as her baby bag, and she recommended the brand. This has features, but not TOO much. And I LOVE that the interiors are colorful - so much easier to find your stuff!!!!! I wanted something a little lighter and small, and it is perfect. The only problem is picking among the cool colors.

I purchased this for my small, 11 year old middle school aged son. It's a great pack, in so many ways. He walks to school, and like so many middle schoolers is required to use a ginormous zippered binder. The darned binder is so incredibly heavy that it's a struggle for him to manage it on the long walk. We figured he could put it in a backpack and use his back to do the work. Sadly, it didn't work for him, only because it doesn't fit the binder. It's a perfect pack, otherwise. A taller kid could just get the larger version of this but he's too small. We ended up getting a different Dakine pack (the Prom) which is wider and easily fits the binder.

Stiff and plastic feeling but seems durable for that reason. Zipper is still a little rough for my 7 year old because the fabric is rigid but she manages. Cute overall

Great backpack for my 9y/o daughter starting 5th grade wish is was a bit longer width and length bc these kids variety heavy books if I had the chance find 23L I would of gotten it. But great support for my child’s back and buckle clip front helps very much on support. Overall Dakine brand highly suggest if you want durability and strength carry heavy objects for kids back to school. Color is fashionable for my little girl. She loved it!

This is the backpack we're keeping for my middle-schooler: the volume is excellent. We could hold my son's flute case, a Chromebook (in its school case), a 2 in three-ring binder, a lunchbox and Thermos, and still have room. We may not use the insulated pouch in the smallest pocket, but it's nice to have it. It was lightweight and comfortable to carry. The padding seems useful, but it doesn't detract for the roominess of the bag. (This was the problem with our last backpack: too much padding on the interior for laptops and such meant it couldn't hold as much as it should without a lot of wrangling.) The canvas seems like it will weather some abuse, the zippers move easily, and it apparently comes with a lifetime warranty.

Really happy with this backpack. It says it’s a youth backpack, but I’m a small female and this is perfect for me. I’m 5’4 and it comfortably fits me. Plenty of room for all my belongings. Not bulky when it’s completely filled.

The bag seems to be of good quality; durable fabric, heavy duty zippers and straps. The exterior pocket holds my charging cable. Size of the bag meets my needs, but the interior slip pocket is barely big enough to hold my wireless mouse (difficult to get it out). Not sure the interior water bottle net is durable/useful? Padded shoulder strap is nice. I like the overall design and it could work for me functionally, however once fully loaded, the bag sags at the top and at the bottom (there is no hard floor). The bag loses its shape when I carry it. This will be returned.

I purchased this back pack to wear while hiking or riding my bike, but I have also been using it as my daily purse now too. I love the floral print on the bag, so cute. I have enough room for my wallet, water bottle, and a few other small essentials, like my phone and sunscreen. The only issue I have with this bag is the straps, this is a small backpack, but I was really hoping there would be more padding for comfort, or just overall better design in the straps. I understand this probably wasn’t the best option for a outdoor, athletic backpack, but I’ve found myself readjusting the straps often,regardless of where I am and what I am carrying.

Being only 5ft tall, most adult backpacks are too long for me, but most backpacks for kids are too small to hold all of my stuff. This one not only takes care of both of those issues wonderfully, the backpack is beautiful! I've gotten a bunch of compliments & I proudly boast that I bought it on Zappos! Thank you!!

I love crossbody bags and how they hand is important to me. This is very comfortable against my hip. The bag distributes weight pretty evenly. There are several exterior pockets, 2 zippered and one flap which are handy for separating glasses, phone etc. It would've been better to have at least one inside pouch or pocket. Only other mention is the strap could be a bit more comfortable. As a seat belt like stiff strap, it's a little annoying. Definitely recommend for the price. A great size and design.

I ordered 4 backpacks from Dakine for this school year. I had to send two back because they were a bit big on my elementary kids. I had them exchanged for smaller sizes. They larger sizes work perfect for my middle school and high school age kids. Love that they have lots of colors to choose from. LOTS of room and organizational zippers so everything has a place - plenty of room for lunch boxes, chrome books, and PE clothes/shoes.
