  • Skate carry straps on front of bag.

Before you head to school, strap your board to the DAKINE Explorer Backpack so you can poach the ledges behind the gym during lunch. Fit your laptop, MP3 player, sunglasses, and books in the Explorer’s pockets so they don’t get lost between your first and second class. Once lunch comes around, head around back and pull some wax out of the organizer pocket that also holds your pens and phone. When the ledge is waxed and ready to shred, put on your tunes and do your best to make it to your next class.

Uncharted territories will finally have a place on the map after you scope them out with the Explorer 26L from Dakine.

Love this bag. All the basics you need. Some great front slots in the front zipped pocket for organizing. Side mesh holds all drinks well. Especially love the two top zipper pockets for holding sunglasses (soft lining) and other personal items (in the nylon lined pocket). Also, interior laptop slot is padded and is perfect for 15-17" laptops.
In terms of comfort, it has great padding for the back and straps. Ergonomic fit when you're wearing it.
Also, bought the green color and it pops. Has the newer logo embroidered (not like the green one pictured). Also, has a better color scheme than the green one pictured. There's more dark grey (i.e. mesh on the side is dark grey and all the white has dark grey contrasting lining next to it).

I got this pack for school and love it. its very spacious, much bigger then i thougth it would be. i havent had any problem fitting books in. one of the top zipper pockets (not the sunglass one) is the perfect size for a graphing calculator. not to mention the graphics are sick! i picked one up for the beginning of the school year, and ive already seen multiple kids with the same pack in different colorways. I got it in green and couldnt be more stoked.

Great for college students hauling butt on campus. Very spacious and able to hold lunch, water bottles on the sides, textbooks, and school supplies. Besides the large main compartment, there are many pockets (some lined to protect iPods or sunglasses), and a sleeve for a laptop. Also looks sick! I've been using the Rasta at university for 3 weeks now and I am extremely happy with it.

bought as a replacement for a bag i got at REI because I needed a laptop sleeve this bag completes that requirement very well, plus the organizer pocket which is awesome and the fact that the bag is super comfortable when worn makes this a great purchase for a great price.

This pack is great for the price. Plenty of room to carry school supplies (very roomy), and a skateboard. Great durable material also.

Negative Reviews:

got this very well-made and well-thought-out pack six months ago and-- the main zipper broke!! couldn't believe it. i did not strees it to the max. just one day the zipper started to unravel a little; and the next day it was useless!. i really loved the design of this bag and the look, too ( their "alpine plaid"); seemed like a very rugged design; i am really bummed
