The Dakine Duel Backpack challenges you!
15 Aug, 2012
The Dakine Duel backpack gets its name from having battled its way up the line up through various feats of strength and challenges. And because it features two separate large compartments. One is for a laptop or tablet, and the other is for whatever else needed to carry around. The laptop compartment is padded and zips from the bottom right side to the top left, not a full zip but enough to allow quick access to the laptop. It is like having two bags in one. Many backpacks come with a padded lap top sleeve, but few of them have a padded laptop compartment.
With 26 liters or 1600 cubic inches of volume, the Duel has plenty of room for books and binders as well. There are also skate carry straps, an organizer pocket and an insulated cooler pocket. It fits comfortably with padded, adjustable straps and the mesh side pockets keep water bottles accessible on the go. The fleeced lined sunglasses pocket is there as well.
For the student or person that wants a back pack that will allow quick access for a laptop and organization of accessories and books, the Duel is a good choice. The Duel is available for $70 and all Dakine backpacks come with a life time warranty.
