I'm pretty picky about backpacks, and I used to get a new one pretty much every year. However, I've been using the Dakine Campus throughout four years of graduate school, which has included throwing the pack around, trekking to and around campus on foot, camping, traveling (with my 17" laptop), hiking, and hanging at the beach. This is one of the most user-friendly packs I've ever had. The different pockets make it easy to separate books, electronic devices, supplies, and other wares. The support from the straps is also incredible - when I'm traveling, I usually have my 20 lb laptop in the case inside (the protection is great - no problems in over 200 train trips between Portland and Seattle), several books, food, beverages, clothing and makeup. Despite the 30+ pounds I'm carrying on my back, the straps distribute the weight evenly and make it feel as though there is about half the amount of weight. While it has worked perfectly for campus and traveling, I've also found it extremely helpful when either hiking or on an outing to the beach. There's plenty of room for a change of clothes, snacks for 2-4 people, and the insulated cooler is awesome - actually keeps food/drinks hot or cold. Comes in handy when you want to sit down and have a snack and cool water during a day of hiking, or when you're relaxing in the sun and want to enjoy a fresh, cool beer - the cooler section can fit a six pack of cans no problem. Overall, this pack is extremely utilitarian, looks good, and is of high quality. I couldn't recommend it more.
I bought this backpack a few years ago, I would say back in 2009. I still use it all the time! It's great for school, works well for the beach or a short weekend trip. The straps are really durable and feel nice on my shoulders. I like the sunglass holder on the top of the back as well as the little "cooler" it has in the front. It also has a laptop holder inside which I've found super useful.
I've been buying Dakine products for awhile now and when it comes to backpacks or luggage, I always pick Dakine first - all their stuff is super dependable and long lasting! Highly recommend!
I love my new DAKINE backpack. As with buying anything online you are not positive what you are going to get. I was afraid the size would not be big enough and the extra pockets would be useless. Quite the opposite. The size is perfect for anything. I travel a lot and it fits about 4 days worth of clothing and everything I need. All the pockets serve a purpose too. Weather it be work or pleasure there is a pocket for anything you have. I really think the sunglasses and cooler pocket are a nice touch as well. This is the perfect all around backpack and just what I needed.
This bag is amazing! We bought it to use for a bag to take out for my special needs son. The quality and durability are amazing, exceeded all my expectations. The size of the bag is pretty big, just like we needed. Space and compartments for everything but the main space w the laptop sleeve (or diaper and wipe sleeve in my case) is very very spacious! The two side mesh pockets are also sturdy and large. Holds a 8oz. (Could hold 3 at a time) without falling out even when we bend down. I recommend this bag to anyone looking for space and durability!
This backpack is perfect... It is big enough to hold your textbooks, as well as your hoodie, beanies, laptop, pet orangutan, crotch rocket, sleeping cot... everything. it has a really lo-profile look/feel to it as well. the cooler pocket is really nice, you can throw a drink in there and it magically becomes cold (i wish). It is super durable so you can shred, skate, or even surf if you wanted too, and it doesn't tear, or get wrecked. i love this backpack... does everything i need it too, and more!
This bag was bought for a big dude that has lots of books to carry with him to school. He also likes to have food with him in case classes run long or he has a workout to do in the middle of the day. This bag has been able to hold his many leather bound books and keep his appetite steady throughout the day. He even commented about how comfy the straps are on for his shoulders and back. I think we have a winner ladies and gents!
I got this for school since my old backpack hurt my shoulders to much. It feels great on my back and holds my other stuff nicely. I only wish there was another big compartment to divide my books a little more....but I think I will survive!
Can anyone tell me what size laptop will this bag will accommodate? I currently have a 17" which I carry in a Swiss Army bag. But unfortunately it is starting to rip at the zipper seams because it's really only made for a 15" laptop.
