Dakine Blade 38L Backpack Reviews:


For the money, one of the most versatile packs you can own. I use this as my main pack for backcountry skiing/touring. Comfortable, reasonably light, and very utilitarian, it holds all my avy gear, water, and snacks as well as extra clothing. The back panel access is a must have. I will also say this bag travels well. In the summer, I can fly with a week's worth of clothing and it fits either in the overhead bin, or under the seat. I have never been hassled about it's size for a carry-on. The straps all tuck in neatly so you don't have loose things flying everywhere.
Although none of the zippers have failed, I would prefer more heavy-duty waterproof zips.

A year ago I wanted one bag that I could put my school items in every weekday and my climb/snowboard/hike/bike stuff in every weekend, and not break a zipper every two months. In the Dakine Blade, I finally have solace knowing my things are secure and organized. I use this bag literally every day, and every day it zips open and close cleanly, with tensioning straps to keep everything tight and well fitted to my body. The 38L capacity is well separated to store large insulated jackets (I think I've fit as many as 4), with smaller pockets for tools, snacks, or anything else.

I love this pack. I use it for everything.Daily commutes to school and carrying my lunch, coffee, and graded papers. Bike ride to the ski hill carrying gear and poles (skis go on the bike for that). And the essentials to the top- even carries the skis super well when needed. The diagonal carry isn't the sturdiest, but the quickness of it is nice for a short carry. the a-frame set up is sweet, and bombproof. Keeps stuff organized, sinches down tight, and gets the job done.

This bag is great for backcountry day trips, or more serious sidecountry excursions. Plenty of space for the avvy gear, emergency supplies, a good sized water bladder, and lunch. The shoulder and waist straps are nice and comfy with all the weight as well. I take this along as my day bag on multi-day tours too.
I've used it in bounds when traveling before too, and it's a little over-sized and strappy for that, but it's also not what it's intended for... Overall would highly recommend it.

I love how this bag has so many compartments, clips and zippers. This bag has enough room for everything I could want on the slopes
