Nerdier than it looks.

It has a padded laptop sleeve and a fleece-lined tablet computer sleeve just in case you can't decide which one you want to bring with you, and when you're not using your media player stick it the fleece-line sunglasses pocket or the back panel security pocket if you're worried about someone perusing the contents of your pack while you're strolling down the street.

Looks great. Well compartmentalized. Great carry on for weekend trips, to keep your electronics safe. Perfect size. Color is dead on, despite the last review I read

Great backpack.

Overall great backpack. It can be noisy with all the zippers but on the other hand it has an awesome protection for you laptop and lots of compartments.


    I looked far and wide for the dimensions and features that the Dakine 101 has. This (mostly) had everything I was looking for - a side zip pocket that I could access w/o taking it off, a padded laptop compartment, lots of space & pockets, a water bottle external pocket, etc., all in a nice neutrally-colored package. However ***THE COLOR SHOWN FOR TAIGA IS ABSOLUTELY INCORRECT***!!! It is an ARMY GREEN color, NOT that light tan/beige color. I checked elsewhere and other places that carry this backpack have the exact same complaint, but I didn't know until too late. Now I have to spend even more hours trying to find one that has the features I want in the right color (and I hate the other colors available for this backpack). I might just keep the ugly army-green one even though it will clash with half of my wardrobe. But it's a huge hassle to return it. I understand that Dakine sends Backcountry the photos to use, but something needs to be done about this - a note if nothing else - because it is entirely the wrong color. For some of us, the color DOES matter. I am upset about this, but the features that this backpack has are cool enough that I will still give it 3 stars, even if I likely won't keep it. Is it that difficult to just show us what we're going to get in the first place? Sigh.

    Great school bag

    I bought this for my daughter to take to school. She picked it out based on pattern and brand. It is her favorite school bag so far. Plenty of pockets to separate and organize everything. Big enough to carry all of her books and supplies.

    Best backpack for work
