Dakine Sequence Backpack with Camera Block Reviews:

Positive Reviews:

I've fallen backwards while wearing this bag, slept on it, stepped on it, had it thrown by someone who didn't know that thousands of dollars in photog gear was inside (gah!!!), and miserably watched it being tossed around after I checked it in onto a plane that was so small that they didn't allow carry-on luggage (IMPORTANT: none of the above actions are recommended) BUT my gear has always remained perfectly intact and safely snuggled up in the impenetrable fortress that is the Dakine Sequence backpack.
I've traveled around the world with it - I take out the camera block and stuff my clothes and other belongings into the bag. The bag can be checked in but because I've had too many experiences with airlines temporarily losing my stuff, I prefer to not check in any luggage and instead I take it with me as my carry-on luggage with the camera block as my extra "purse" allowance (or "laptop bag" etc, if you're a guy). You look like just another student backpacker, so no one suspects that you're carrying gear worth more than a first class plane ticket and a few nights at a five star hotel.
The back access is excellent! Some people might prefer the sling style, but I definitely like knowing that no thieves can get to my gear. The sling style can be useful and that's why photographers tend to collect an annoying amount of bags to suit different situations, but the back access is definitely tops - ESPECIALLY if you're into backcountry riding. Just throw down your bag (rain cover optional - my bag has always survived a rest in the snow), unzip from the back, and you're ready to shoot!
I also dig all the pockets and straps for goggles, my snowboard, a tripod, snacks, lens caps, etc. This model, unlike the previous years', actually has the laptop sleeve that many have asked for. Note that I've not gone snowboarding with this year's model yet - nor have I taken my laptop with me when riding with last year's model - but seriously, you're out to RIDE and maybe take a few nice pictures, not to check facebook and post process.
Anyway, yeah. This is the second time I've bought this bag - for my boyfriend because he was way jealous of mine. The ONLY gripe I have about this is that as a 5'2", skinny (read: super wimpy) girl, this bag could sometimes get heavy. It's 5lbs alone, so stuffing it with camera gear while snowboarding (much less stuffing it with clothes and other belongings, while carrying a fully filled camera block on your shoulder, then walking for a few hours, owww) could turn it into a possibly tiring load. But that's what a nice boyfriend is for, right? ;) Otherwise, I'm pretty certain that no respectable snowboarder/hiker/backpacker can be as wimpy as me and YOU, dear reader, can certainly take this awesome piece of gear wherever you wish.

I travel all the time and love taking photos of my travels. I carry a 7d, 70-300, 17-40, 50, 10-22 and a 28-135, plus three hard drives, cords, eyepiece for when I shoot video, all my nd filters and other stuff I'm probably forgetting. I also bring my computer, iPad, pens, note pad and it still has room for snacks, water, sunglasses and more. Not to mention, when you ride, you can strap up your boards easily on the sides. It's comfortable and just fits in the overhead bin. It's also pretty handy when you go somewhere skethy and don't want to bring your camera, just take out the block and you're good to go. I obviously highly recommend this pack!

I got the sequence for air travel for a documentary gig. When hopping on a plane I take out the separate camera bag and carry that and the backpack (full of laptop, drives..etc) so that I don't have to check my camera and lenses. This lets me hit the ground running even when luggage gets misrouted/lost.
The build quality seems good. My Reload has held up like a champ and this bag feels similar in build quality. I use this bag for the essentials. It feels very comfortable scrambling up rocks or through dense bush fully loaded. Great deal for the price.

Well, I outgrew my little sling and needed something to fit all my new gear. It can literally hold everything. The only disadvantage to it is there arent enough pockets for misc things such as filters, batteries, memory cards ect. Everything I have had in/on it at one time includes:
Manfrotto 701/055XB setup
Glidecam 2000 pro
Canon t3i
Tamron 17-50
Canon 50mm
Canon 70-200
Go pro
Rode Video Mic
Tons of cords
Lav mic
External Flashes
And tons of other misc gear.
Dont hesitate, its a great buy! just wish there was a few more pockets for smaller stuff!

I own several Dakine backpacks and this one is just what you would expect. Quality, durable construction, with all the bells and whistles you need. There are lighter weight packs out there, but many will not take the abuse this one will. The back panel has great access to everything inside and all the side pockets fit what you need. There is a tripod attachment and several other pockets to store the extras. All around awesome pack and value.

This bag is doing exactly what I got it for, I needed something to hold my Elinchrom Ranger RS and A head and it does it perfect. Most of the Burton bags were too small and the Dakine is a little tight but it fits. If you're looking to carry lights this bag is big enough to do it.

This is an awesome camera bag. Well made and plenty of pockets.

Neutral Reviews:

Bought this pack as our filming work horse and it has gotten beat up quick. I would agree that as a travel pack it is legit, tons of pockets, compartments and plenty of room to store all you need. However when you put shovel, probe and a pair of skin in the pack there is literally no room for extra layers, food etc. We also carry around a heavy tripod and after one season of use one of the shoulder straps is ripping out and the tripod loops are beginning to rip out (we did load the hell out of the pack, skis in Aframe, tripod, full camera gear). Fine for its price but use it is a travel bag and not heavy use.
