Dakine Ella Reviews:


I got this bag for a couple of reasons, I got it in the Belle color and I absolutely LOVE the look, I didn't even wait for Christmas, I had to have it right away. I got it as a purse, because I tend to carry a lot of crap, but the laptop sleeve is a bonus for school and work. It says it fits a 15" laptop but I think that's only if you have a really thin laptop, like a mac maybe. I have a 14" HP laptop that's a little thicker and I can just barely squeeze it in. When I use it for school I can fit my laptop and books just fine and when I use it for work I can fit my laptop and still use it as a purse with the extra space. I am a huge fan of Dakine in general but this bag is truly made to last. Great material, great handles that are super flexible and very sturdy hardware. If you're looking for a bag/purse or laptop bag that's made to last, you should definitely pick this one. I get compliments on it everywhere too. :-)

This bag is awesome! A few years ago I bought this same style bag, only in a different color, but sadly it was stolen. I immediately bought the same bag, but in Avalon coloring because I loved it that much. This bag is great for toting small to big stuff around. I can fit books and my laptop (even has a cushioned backing for your laptop) in this bag with all my other stuff perfectly fine. The straps are great and very comfortable, plus you know this bag will last a LONG time as all of my Dakine bags are awesome. I have always received compliments on this bag and I love showing everyone the great quality of it. This bag has been through a lot with me and it was even machine washable! I can take this bag out for a night or during the day to work, class, boarding, traveling, etc. it is great for any and all occasions. Forget your Gucci, Chanel bags, get a Dakine and go home happy!

I love this bag -- just ordered a replacement after my old one lost a fight with a territorial cat. It had held up pretty well, but because the straps are basically foam covered in plastic, some of the coating was starting to crack. Other than that, it's great. It holds my 15" MacBook with a plastic cover (the Dakine Valet bags weren't quite big enough to accommodate the laptop in its case) and I still have room for my wallet, spare shoes, lunch, book, etc. I don't mind keeping my personal stuff in the outer pockets. The problem with the front pockets unlatching themselves seemed to get better with age. Also really happy with the new Capri color, black with the patterning in a subtle shiny black on top. Great!

I've searched FOREVER for a computer bag that will hold my laptop, plus all the other stuff I seem to tote around. It also has to be tough enough to hold up to a lot of travel. Most importantly, I wanted a bag that looked a little more stylish than those overly masculine, hideous, generic black ones that seem to be everywhere. Dakine's Ella bag fulfills all my requirements!!!! I ordered the bag in Jungle--it's sturdy, roomy--and the cute lining inside is an added bonus! The print on the fabric adds a little something extra, without being over-the-top. And the straps and other "leather" accents are metallic, again, making this bag even more special.

I love this bag. It feels like there is a pocket for everything. I work two jobs and go to school full time, so there isn\'t a lot of time in-between for going home to grab stuff. This bag will hold my laptop, camera, wallet, phone, lunch, and a spare shirt, all without looking gaudy or awkward. Unfortunately, my house got robbed and this bag got stolen, but I loved it so much I\'m buying another one! My only complaint is that I do wish it had adjustable/interchangeable straps, but overall, it\'s wonderful.

This bag is cute on the outside, but is really only appropriate for a non-professional (e.g. college, high school, casual) setting. The inside is lined with a light purple print fabric that I found unattractive. Another big negative for me was the lack of any zip pockets on the interior of the bag. I don't want to keep all my little personal items in exterior pockets. So the bag is going back.

I really love the bag and the quality is just great. The only thing that I am missing is little pockets with zippers for e.g. Phones, keys ect inside the bag. There are mo pokets but one big one for a lap top. That is the only thing that I have to say besides that just loving it and she is sooooo pretty! :) Great for travelling!

I have bought several of these over the years- they last forever, look great, and hold anything from a tablet to a laptop to a bottle of wine. Plus you can keep your cell phone in an outside secure pocket, and hang your keys on the metal O-rings. Now my sisters are converts as well. Glad they come up with new patterns every year!

I am really happy with this bag. It's a great "mom" bag. The outer zippered pocket is large enough to hold as many items as a small purse and the big inner pocket things like water bottle, sweater, snacks and because of the padded pocket, my kindle. While more casual and not leather, the synthetic material seems at least wipeable.

Great bag - has held up well for many years. I can fit so much in here - two laptops, iPad, phone, the peripherals, and an extra pair of shoes. (It's a tight fit though.)
