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.

This duffel is huge. It has more than enough room for a week long trip. The material is heavy duty and the zippers are strong. I do wish there were a couple internal pockets for smaller items. The end pocket is big enough for shoes. Overall I’m very happy with this bag.

Thrilled! This is my perfect beach day back pack. Everything has a spot, weight is dispersed comfortably, and my hands are free to carry my chair. I especially like the little drink/cooley pouch in the front, and the fuzzy pocket for my phone or sunglasses. Lots of nooks and crannies for sunscreen, earbuds, sunscreen, bug spray. Dry shorts for after and a towel and beach sheet. Not too small and not too big for exactly what I purchased it for. Got a good deal with a surprise sale price!

Super cool backpack I always was a Dakine fan and my first Dakine lived for 13 years so I think this will last same. Great quality and super cool cooler pocket.

I bought this item as a multi day bag or weekend bag. It is everything I hoped to find in a smaller more compact bag but is still spacious. Very happy with this purchase.

I purchased this item as a second trial. I first purchased the same style duffle bag but in a smaller size (25L) thinking that I would like that size but unfortunately it was too small. My purpose for this bag is to use it as a gym bag and I needed something larger, so I purchased the 50L and it's a great size for my daily usage. The material seems to be durable and sturdy, it has two hand straps and a shoulder strap. The shoulder strap has a curvy comfort insert that makes it comfortable to carry. This duffle bag also has a side zipper pocket, good size but other than that pocket, there isn't any other pockets which I would personally like to divide most of my items in the bag. The main pocket bag is large in size and great for packing a good amount of items. I give this bag an overall 4 stars because it is large and it looks sturdy, so far i've had it for about a week and I've had no issues. If it had more pockets inside the main pocket, I would give it a 5 because then it would be exactly what i would be looking for.

Very cute (i.e., un-corporate) bookbag with good organization. I use this as a work bag to carry my corporate-issued giant 15" Dell laptop, which barely fits in the padded compartment. However, my previous bag's padded compartment was huge, and it allowed the laptop to repeatedly smack my back as I walked. At least I don't have that problem anymore! I love the soft sunglasses pocket up top. The soft interior pocket holds my little wireless mouse so it doesn't get all scratched up. The insulated bag that's included was a nice bonus as well! It's very small, but I have used it several times and it's helpful. Overall, I'm very happy with this backpack!

This little backpack is awesome. I LOVE the pattern (winter daisy) and it's the perfect size for touristing or short hikes. It easily fits two packable jackets, two wallets, keys, chapstick, a few snacks other small essentials plus the two water bottle pockets are great. The pattern is pretty girly but my boyfriend doesn't mind carrying it. This was a great purchase!

Probably would be warm but the fit is poor, pinches the thumb... maybe for someone with very skinny hands.

This is a great overall backpack. I am ordering my second one. The first one lasted 5 years and then the zipper broke. Other than that it is in great shape. I travel for work and I take it everywhere! I couldn’t find another backpack that I liked as much as this one so I searched online for it and I was surprised that they were still making it. I guess DaKine sticks with something that works!

Perfect everyday backpack! Love the cooler pouch on front, it’s big enough for a sandwich and a bottle of water. Perfect amount of pouches for storage and mesh pockets on the outsides which were a must for me. Fabric is stiff but will wear with time. Would buy again!
