Back to School! Back to school! Grab a new backpack and get back to school! Or if you are done with school, grab a new bag anyway. With all the styles and colors available from Dakine, it is a garunteed “Easy A” to find the right backpack. And don’t forget that all Dakine backpacks come with a limited lifetime warranty, so they are sure to last through that PhD in economics, or powder turns (whichever your major).
If you are a student, one of the best choices is the Dakine Campus backpack. Dakine offers the Campus in large (LG) and small (SM). The LG has 33L or 2000 cubic inches of room inside of it and plenty of pockets and compartments for your electronics, notebooks, party-fliers and lunch. The padded sleeve fits most 15” laptops and the insulated cooler pocket will keep everything else dry while the Red Bulls stay cold. There is even a fleeced lined pocket for cheap sunglasses. With a $55 price tag, there will still be some money left over to buy books.
The Campus SM has all the same features as the Campus LG, just in a smaller package. With 25L or 1500 cubic inches of space, this backpack has plenty of room for the younger or smaller student. The padded laptop sleeve will fit most 14″ laptops. For $50, the Campus SM is another great choice for back to school.
Both of these bags fit very comfortably and have adjustable straps and a chest clip. The straps are padded, as well as the outside back panel. The construction is very solid, with smooth YKK zippers and double stitched seams at critical areas. Dakine also offers several colorways in most their bags. The Campus is a comfortable, roomy bag that is a great choice for students.
Dakine backpacks come with a lifetime warranty.
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.
