since most airlines charge per bag, needed one large suitcase that could hold everything. Before purchasing this one, I was a little worried about the split design and the divided compartments - would those features not allow for large items, or interfere with over stuffing the thing, etc. All my worries were non-issues packing for a 10 day trip to the caribbean with snorkel gear and hiking gear. A normal carry-on fits in one side of the split roller with room to spare on that side, just to give you an idea of how much space you get. I do have mild concerns over durability of the bag, as it has all material outer. It seems to be thick, beefy material but airlines are brutal with your stuff. No problems so far. The compression straps are awesome as it makes the bag very usable still if you don't need all 4000 cu in. of the bag, and it seems to take some of the stress off the zippers. Smart design that works for me.
Awesome bag, plenty of room for everything I need. Love all the compartments, nice to keeps things separate. I would recommend this one instead of the larger one for flying because this one is not considered oversized. You still need to be careful with the weight very easy to fill it up and be over weight. I bought the Nebula color of this bag, I love the way it looks and very easy to spot amongst the sea of bags. My daughter has been trying to persuade me to give it to her....I may have to break down and get her one of her own because she isn't getting mine.
I bought this without ever physically touching/seeing one for a trip to London & Italy last month. When it arrived was worried not enough space with the internal pockets. Was I ever wrong!! This bag rocks & with the pockets keeps clothes tight and from moving around. Even the bag came home with only a small scratch. A First for me since my last two "other" suitcases were destroyed on two separate trips. I'm in love with Dakine! Highly recommend & it holds a LOT of clothes/shoes. Not small by any means!
WE BOUGHT 5 OF THOSE BAGS OVER THE YEARS.. ACTUALLY ONE FOR EVERYONE IN OUR FAMILY. THE FIRST ONE CAME BACK FROM A FLIGHT ALL DESTROYED, IT LOOKED LIKE IT HAD BEEN RUN OVER. WE SEND IT BACK TO DAKINE AND THEY REPLACED IT. WE TRAVEL INTENSELY AND NONE OF THE BAGS RIPED AND NONE OF THE ZIPPER BROKE. VERY GOOD BAGS. DON'T BUY THE BIGGER BAG VERSION. THIS ONE IS BIG ENOUGH THAT I HAVE TO BE CAREFUL NOT TO LOAD IT OVER THE 50LB LIMIT.
I've had this bag for 4 years and ... just replaced it with the Freemont pattern. Looks like they improved the wheels compared to mine. The new pone has skate board style wheels while the old one was more roller blade type.
The new ones look more stable. I find with this size when I pack it full to the brim it always comes in just under the 50 lbs mark! Perfect for travel! Fits everything and has awesome pockets and compartments to organize your gear.
I travel three weeks out of every month. I have two Dakine bags - this one and the larger one and love them. Roomy and the three compartments are why I went with these. Keeps socks undies and stuff separate and easy to get to. Love the two snap chinch straps on the outside as well as the outside pockets that are large. Rolls great. Buy a set. Worth it and this was the best price on the Internet at BC. Enjoy your travels.
I took this bag to Barbados and it exceeded my expectations. The separate compartments and sandwich style opening made it a breeze to quickly transfer duty free liquor from my carry-on luggage to this bag prior to my connecting flight. I got this 65L over the 90L because I did not want to exceed the weight limit; good thing cause I was slightly over. awesome quality and lifetime warranty!!
I like the bag overall, but it just isn't as functional as I would hope. The reason for that is that the hardwear that makes up the pull system takes up too much of the interior room of the bag. For the total size of the bag, I would have expected it to have a little more space. You can easily fit a week's worth of clothes in it, but from the exterior dimensions, I would have thought it held more.
