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 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!

I love this backpack. I am female and use it for work, and it is great when I travel. The straps are very comfortable and it doesn’t feel heavy on my back. It saves my shoulder now that I switched from a tote. I was worried it would be too big for me but it isn’t at all. The different pockets are super helpful for organizing work and additional travel items.

The ONLY bag I use!! I have purchased probably 5 of these amazing bags..I keep having to buy more because my daughter decided to take one (then another!), a friend of hers needed a bag one day and she loved it so much I let her keep it. This bag holds more than you’d think! And I love all the storage compartments..makes me feel organized! Please keep making more with floral patterns..for $30 I’ll buy them all!!

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

I have been wearing this hat all the time since I got it! It is so warm- the lining fills the whole hat, not just around the band like some lined hats have. And like a previous reviewer said, I have a pixie cut and often look weird in big beanies- this one fits perfect, and I actually think I look cute in a hat for a change! The amethyst color is a great neutral- more gray than what you would think of as “amethyst”. If you have a smaller head or short hair, don’t hesitate to grab this beanie!

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!

I got this bag for my 2 year old who looks more like a 3 year old and it was little big for her. On a good note, the bag quality is good and there are many pockets to fit things in so I will hang on to it for her till she's older. Overall, I really like this bag and she loves it.

Perfect for kids ... and probably great for adults too. I got this backpack for school for my 8 year old son. He’s had it for about 4 months and it shows no signs of wear. The packs we have gotten previously barely make it through the school year, this one will easily last a couple of years. It is very stylish and great quality! I’ve put it on a few times, it’s fairly comfortable as an average sized adult. It has tons of pockets for all of his random things and school stuff.

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.
